* BadassDriver: Miško Krstić can drive the bus backwards while blindfolded for several hundred meters, and apparently, he does this a lot.

* OnlyKnownByTheirNickname: Most characters are only known by their description (the Singer, the Hunter, the Bride et cetera). Not very surprising, since they all meet on a bus and don't known each other.
