Added DiffLines:

* TheScrappy: Jessica, Richard's girlfriend at the beginning of the book is very disliked for being a very controlling woman and trying to ''fix'' Richard for marriage, and for browbeating him. No one is sad when he doesn't get back with her.

* AuthorAvatar: Possibly. Read the physical description of Richard Mayhew. Then take a look at Neil Gaiman's author portrait.
** Jossed on Gaiman's tumblr. He described Richard based off the original actor from the TV show.

** "Messires Croup and Vandemar" are the resident [[PsychoForHire monsters for hire]] of the London Below. Croup himself sums the duo up best when he cheerily remarks "we have ''no'' redeeming features." Croup and Vandemar seem one beast split into two bodies, Croup as the brains and Vandemar as the brawn, but both are wildly sadistic and cruel. A man who fails to perform his tasks is set upon by Croup and hacked to pieces (and impliedly devoured by him). The two murder heroine Door's entire family and when her ally, the Marquis, tries to negotiate with them, they capture him and torture him for nothing more than entertainment. They give him a head start though...with Vandemar stalking after him, gleefully counting down the time to savor the hunt even more.

** The angel [[BigBad Islington]] is a being drunk on its own glory and vanity. Islington was originally tasked with watching over Atlantis. When pressed on how Atlantis really sank, Islington's normally beautiful, serene features are replaced by a mask of fury as it shrieks '''They deserved it!'''. Islington is the one who commissioned Croup and Vandemar to murder Door's family and manipulated Door to him so she could open the gates of heaven, allowing Islington to conquer its kin and exact revenge out of nothing more than spite for its exile.

* AlternateCharacterInterpretation: The ending of the book is ambiguous: either Richard [[spoiler: decided to return to London Below and went with the Marquis]] or [[spoiler: the whole thing drove him kind of insane and he just imagined that happening because he couldn't deal with London Above anymore]]. Given how Gaiman tends to avoid that kind of twists, it's still probably the [[spoiler: former]]. [[TakeAThirdOption Although it could be both.]]
