* ArtisticLicenseBiology: Coyotes are nearly twice as fast as roadrunners and actually prey on them in reality. The roadrunner's best line of defense is camouflage and stealth, as he wouldn't be able to outrun Wile E. on open ground.

* CharacterizationMarchesOn: The Roadrunner ''originally'' was depicted as somewhat a KarmicTrickster in '''WesternAnimation/FastAndFurryOus'' (1949) and clearly aware of Coyote hunting the whole time, a trait that had been somewhat dropped in later shorts sense the Coyote gets [[HoistByHisOwnPetard Hoist By His Own Petards]] anyways.

** If a real coyote tops out at 38 mph versus 20 mph for a real road runner, the chase scenes that opened up the early shorts is a clear sign of this. Of course, HilarityEnsues with the little burst of speed the Road Runner puts on for his getaway (one exception being "Sugar and Spies," when the Coyote was knocked down by a thrown briefcase).

* ShownTheirWork: In [[DependingOnTheWriter some]] shorts, the freezeframes that show Wile E. and the Road Runner's scientific names show their ''actual'' scientific names.

** Rule #2 No outside force can harm the coyote. Only his own ineptitude or the failure of ACME products.

* StoppedReadingTooSoon: One ploy that Wile uses on the Road Runner is to leave a pile of bird seed laced with [[AcmeProducts Acme]] [[WeSellEverything Earthquake Pills]]. The target ingests the entire bait, then departs unaffected. The coyote disgustedly eats the remaining pills, about half the bottle. A moment later, his eye catches the fine print at the bottom of the label: "Caution: Not effective on road runners." Cue the coyote's leg quivering ominously.
