  • Defictionalisation:
    • Some of the T-shirts fans of the gods wear in the comic were produced for real, starting with "Lucifer Died for our Sins".
    • Dionysus' Yoloo shirt was also made available, initially as a NYCC exclusive.
  • I Knew It!:
    • Some fans guessed issue #20's twist that Baphomet didn't kill Inanna. Ananke did.
    • Some fans guessed that Woden was actually David Blake and to a lesser extent, that the Pink/Blue Woden was actually his son, Jon.

    • Subverted with 1923: People correctly guessed Baal was in this Pantheon, but he wasn't the Black man seen in issue #1.
  • Life Imitates Art:
    • The designs for the gods are striking and beautiful....several months later, some folks on Twitter noticed that some of the 2015 Eurovision contestants look oddly familiar.
    • On a less humorous note, in 2016 David Bowie died close to the same date that Luci did, and Prince shortly after, like Inanna. Gillen himself noted this creepy coincidence.
  • Portmanteau Series Nickname: The creators actively encouraged the use of WicDiv for this.
  • Shout-Out: Look very closely at the posters in Jon's room in #28 and you'll notice some of them are very familiar... There's one of Voltron, one of the original Ghost In The Shell, and, of all things, this photoshoot from Girls' Generation.
  • Word Of God: Kieron posted writer's notes for each issue. They were reprinted in some of the collections.

  • Write Who You Know: Kieron has stated that all the characters are, to some extent, himself, "and that includes fucking Woden."
