* GodIsFlawed: Some episodes portray God as less "perfect being" and more, for lack of a better word, "human". Examples include the weariness and disappointment he feels in the first episode, having someone "accidentally" crushed under a tree in order to get onto Bob's baseball team, His relationship trouble with a human, and His estranged relationship with His fallen angel creation.

The show touched on many family issues, including death, puberty, and bullying, among others. The show caused a good deal of controversy due to its presumed mocking of the Christian faith, a largely inaccurate accusation leveled almost entirely by people who had never actually seen -- and indeed ''refused'' to watch -- the show (like they did with ''Film/MontyPythonsLifeOfBrian'' and ''TheLastTemptationOfChrist''). Ironically, the show's creator was an ordained clergyman with a favorable attitude towards the faith. It eventually made it to DVD in the US, several overseas markets did air the full series, and in 2011, the show's full run made its way into the Creator/AdultSwim lineup.

* BlondGuysAreEvil: The Devil is blonde in his "human" form. A style preference or something more sinister?

-->'''Bob:''' Get ''out''! There must be somebody else that you can annoy.
-->'''The Devil:''' That's all I am to you? Is annoying? ''I'' am the source of all evil in the universe, and I'm annoying?

* DespairEventHorizon: Bob crosses it in the episode where his dad dies. Not ''because'' his dad died, but by learning despite what an incredible asshole he was in life he was allowed into heaven. Bob is unable to comprehend how such an awful person wouldn't get sent to hell and basically decides nothing he does matters if morality is a joke. It's so bad Donna and Megan can both tell something is really wrong. Bob then steals a fancy sports car, gets in a high speed police chase, and moons a couple of nuns.

He gets better when God explains that, while Bob has a right to be angry at the way he was treated, it's GOD'S job to forgive people, and that Bob's father was actually trying to be a better father to Bob than his own father was to him.

* AllMenArePerverts: Especially Bob and his friends. One episode has God interrupt Bobs weekly strip club visit for one of his missions, only for Bob to complain that his favorite strippers music just came on.

* WellDoneSonGuy: The Devil's animosity toward God stems from this. Yep, Lucifer's Morningstar's fall from grace and subjugation of Hell were all caused by daddy issues. "Knowing you were good, but never good ''enough''." In turn, God's estranged relationship with Lucifer is due to Him feeling betrayed by his fall, having considered Lucifer Morningstar to have been his greatest Angel.

Added DiffLines:

* NotSoDifferent: "Lonely At the Top" gets started by Bob chastising God about not knowing what it's like to be human. God spends the entire episode seeing what it's like--annoying Bob to no end. In the end, God explains He just wanted to be one of the guys and created humanity in the first place to have some company.
-->'''God:''' Yknow the expression "It's [[TitleDrop lonely at the top]]?" That's when you're talkin' about presidents and Streisand. Imagine what it's like for me.\\
'''Bob:''' So, you get lonely? Maybe you know more about being human than I thought.
