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

** 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.

* ReadTheFinePrint: In "Hopalong Casualty," Wile E. attempts to trap the Road Runner by getting him to eat some Acme Earthquake Pills disguised as birdseed. They don't work, and it isn't until Wile E. contemptuously swallows the entire bottle of pills that he reads the fine print on the pill bottle and discovers that they're "not effective on Road Runners." Cue OhCrap.

An extremely popular series of ''WesternAnimation/LooneyTunes'' short subjects made by Creator/ChuckJones during TheGoldenAgeOfAnimation, the Wile E. Coyote and Road Runner shorts are centered on the titular duo as the smart but obsessive coyote does everything within his power (and uses everything within the ACME catalog) to capture the elusive Road Runner for dinner. Despite their penchant for formula, the shorts have remained extremely popular to this day, lasting for 40 shorts in the classic era, with new shorts being created for theaters.
