* HilariousInHindsight: Remember when Arthur first encountered the Vogons, and wished he had a daughter so he could tell her never to marry one? In this book, he ends up with Random. BeCarefulWhatYouWishFor, Mr. Dent.

* AuthorExistenceFailure: The books were technically completed, but Adams reportedly regretted the dark ending of the last book and wanted to write another. His death prevented that.
* CreatorBreakdown: ''Mostly Harmless''

Added DiffLines:

* InferredHolocaust: The destruction of "every Earth in every reality" and all their inhabitants sounds bad enough, but it's left to the reader to realize that that includes [=NowWhat=], [[ElvisHasLeftThePlanet the King]], and probably even [[Literature/TheHitchhikersGuideToTheGalaxy1 the dolphins]]. ([=NowWhat=] may be a CrapsackWorld, but it puts a human face on those alternate Earths and shows just how diverse they were.)
