This book provides examples of:
* AllBikersAreHellsAngels
* BraidsBeadsAndBuckskins: Both averted and played straight.
* ClapYourHandsIfYouBelieve: Gods will die out unless people believe in them and tell stories about them. Ultimately the fate of Anubis.
* {{Cloudcuckoolander}}: Coyote.
* CoolShades: Minty Fresh wears a pair to hide his SupernaturalGoldEyes.
* ComicallyMissingThePoint:
-->"He was funny. He tried to teach me how to walk on water. [[{{Cloudcuckoolander}} I]] [[RuleOfFunny said]] [[CompletelyMissingThePoint I could do that just fine in the winter]]."\\
Coyote, in reference to Jesus.
* CrossoverCosmology: [[EgyptianMythology Anubis]] is Coyote's older brother and he's met Jesus.
* LemonyNarrator
* NoSuchThingAsWizardJesus: Coyote has met Jesus once and is amused that Jesus makes such a big deal about coming back from the dead one time. ItMakesSenseInContext, as Coyote's brother is Anubis, a god who has brought the dead back to life on multiple occasions.
** It's even funnier without the context from the book. Simply going by existing mythology, Coyote has died and come back to life dozens of times. Of course he'd be amused by a religion based on a guy who only did it once, and took a whole three days to do it even then.
* PhysicalGod: Coyote.
* SupernaturalGoldEyes: Coyote, Anubis and their 'children' (Sam and Minty Fresh, respectively) all have golden eyes to denote their supernaturality.
* TricksterArchetype: Coyote.
* UnfazedEveryman: Sam Hunter.
* WhoNamesTheirKidDude: Minty Fresh. Even Sam, who is born as "Samson Hunts Alone".
