- Audience Awareness Advantage: Defied. The book works overtime to ensure that the reader is just as confused as the characters as to what's going on.
- "Common Knowledge": One of the major themes of the book is that common views on history are constructed to serve nefarious purposes.
- Faux Symbolism: The book is stacked full of it, with just as much actual symbolism. Part of the fun is trying to figure out which is which.
- Writer on Board: Long speeches and monologues criticizing various aspects of Western society are common, such as LeBas' "Reason You Suck" Speech to Abdul Sufi about the illegitimacy of monotheism.
