* EarCleaning: Nyatta's father does this to him early on in the movie. Seeing how Nyaako just ran all night to try and get back his sister, this scene could be considered a HeartwarmingMoment.

* CreepyCrossdresser: In the original doujinshi, Nyako was a little boy whose family could only afford the girls' clothes, so he had to wear those instead. In the {{OVA}}, Nyako is a girl.

* VillainProtagonist: A less outwardly villainous example than most, but it's still noticeable. Nyatta may be trying to bring his sister back to life, but he repeatedly displays cruelty against others, ''especially'' the pig.
