* CrossesTheLineTwice: "Did you bust a nut when I...?"
* DracoInLeatherPants: Azzarello was disturbed to discover that Lono was inexplicably popular among female fans. Keep in mind that the character is, among many other unpleasant things, a misogynistic rapist.
* EnsembleDarkhorse: Cole Burns and because of MisaimedFandom, Lono.
* EvilIsSexy: Megan and Echo. Some of the minor female Trust members are also pretty hot, but it's not emphasized to the same degree as those two.
* FridgeBrilliance: The fact that the Trust is composed of '''13''' families initially just seems like a detail added in to make them seem more evil (because, y'know...'''13''' is an unlucky number). Then we find out that the Trust were the real founders of the United States--a nation that started out as a union of '''13''' colonies. One colony for each house of the Trust.
* GeniusBonus: Several involving the American-history stuff.
** "Lono" is a Hawaiian god of fertility and music. Aside of the fact that Lono '''is''' Hawaiian, he bears very little resemblance to the god.
* TearJerker: The scenes in ''Wylie Runs The Voodoo Down'' when Wylie kills [[spoiler:Martin]] and Rose respectively (Rose was in a flashback), the above mentioned fate of [[spoiler:the Rome brothers]], and much of the final issue.
** And [[spoiler:Wylie's death]]. That got me right ''here''.
