* RefugeInAudacity: When some of the Tanuki decide to go public on TV to plead their case to save their habitat. To the typical viewer (and the in-universe ones too), you will reflexively this stunt [[ReedRichardsIsUseless will never happen]] as fantasy folk in these stories are ''never'' openly revealed and no one will believe they are seeing the real thing. However, after a moment's hesitation, the Tanuki find the courage to do the unthinkable and appear right on camera to make their address and, to a degree, ''it works''!

Well noted for the scene where defiant tanuki use one of their most prominent fairy tale features (their extraordinarily large testicles) as clubs to attack the police. And it shouldn't surprise anyone that the art is incredible, seeing as it's a StudioGhibli film.

* ShoutOut: [[Anime/MyNeighborTotoro Totoro]], [[Anime/KikisDeliveryService Kiki]] and [[Anime/PorcoRosso Porco Rosso]] all appear in the Tanuki's "Ghost Parade".
** Also, in a scene where a group of Tanuki are trying to scare away a person from buying some property, they use the signature pose of the original KamenRider to transform.

** Part of Disney's contract with Studio Ghibli was that they wouldn't edit any of the studio's films. This after the terrible fate of ''Manga/NausicaaOfTheValleyOfTheWind'' at the hands of New World Video. So, Disney released ''Anime/PomPoko'' unedited and hoped that nobody would notice.[[note]]That being said, Disney neglected to release Isao Takahata's ''Anime/OnlyYesterday'' and Goro Miyazaki's ''Anime/FromUpOnPoppyHill'' in the US (though ''Poppy Hill'' is being dubbed and prepped for release by GKIDS) because of "unacceptable" content - a discussion about menstruation in ''Only Yesterday'' and implied incest in ''Poppy Hill''.[[/note]]

Added DiffLines:

* HotBlooded: Gonta's loud answer to everything concerning humans is to go to war with them.


Added DiffLines:

* ItCantBeHelped: The tanuki have to "accept the unacceptable" and conform to humans' encroachment on their territory. Some turn into humans and adapt, others weather on as tanuki, but their golden days will never come back.

* {{Bowdlerise}}: Japanese culture (even children's songs) is full of earthy references to the Tanuki's most outstanding anatomical feature--unusually large testicles. Not surprisingly, Disney changed "scrotum" to "pouch" for the English dub -- but not the subtitles. Whether or not they fooled anyone is unclear. (Actually, given all the sight gags on that topic, the real surprise is that Disney did the release at all.)

* AllPartOfTheShow: An uinintentional version. To try and frighten the humans out of New Tama, the tanuki enact "Operation Specter", a massive parade of {{yokai}} and monsters. However, it merely amazes the humans, and a nearby amusement park takes credit for the show as a publicity stunt.
