* WeirdnessCensor: Nobody seems overly amazed at any supernatural event that occurs. In fact most of the adults continue to believe that Ponyo is a 'goldfish'. See also UnusuallyUninterestingSight.

* WeirdnessCensor: Nobody seems overly amazed at any supernatural event that occurs. In fact most of the adults continue to believe that Ponyo is a 'goldfish'. See also UnusuallyUninterestingSight. It's implied (but never outright stated) that humans have a hard time perceiving magic, (the big example is that the fishermen comment on the waves, but not that they are made of watery fish) and that Sousuke never saw the eyes, and other than the one woman, nobody noticed that Ponyo had a human face.

Added DiffLines:

* NonDubbedGrunts: During the scene where Fujimoto finds Ponyo and takes her back from Sosuke, when the latter runs into the water to search for Ponyo and Lisa sees, her cry of "Sosuke!" is kept from the Japanese version, as is Sosuke's crying afterward

* GratuitousJapanese: Amazingly, Disney didn't try to localize this movie [[FourKidsEntertainment unlike certain other dubbers]]. The English dub preserves a few UsefulNotes/JapaneseHonorifics that have "loanword" status ["-san," mostly, and "sensei"], possibly to help enforce the fact that this takes place in Japan.

to:

* InterspeciesRomanceInterspeciesRomance: Ponyo the [[BuffySpeak goldfish-youkai-thing]] and Sosuke the human, also Fujimoto the ambiguous humanoid youkai-creature and Granmamare the goddess.



* JerkWithAHeartOfGold: Fujimoto. Toki becomes this near the end of the film.

* JerkWithAHeartOfGold: Fujimoto.Fujimoto, though possibly subverted (see Fridge page). Toki becomes this near the end of the film.



* PersonOfMassDestruction: Ponyo when trying to find Sosuke. [[JustifiedTrope Justified]] since she'd been doused in a powerful magic potion designed to create another spontaneous burst of sea-life, Cambrian Explosion-style. Despite plunging the town into the ocean, [[NoEndorHolocaust she doesn't appear to cause any casualties or even property damage, though.]]

* RummageSaleReject: Fujimoto is rather fond of clown-like striped suits.

to:

* RummageSaleReject: Fujimoto is rather fond of clown-like striped suits. Given the fact that he's [[Really700YearsOld several centuries old]], he probably knows how ridiculous he looks to most people and just really doesn't care.



* TinyGuyHugeGirl: Normal-sized Fujimoto and ''HUGE'' Granmammare. She can shrink herself to almost-human size, but she's still head and shoulders taller than Lisa.

to:

* TinyGuyHugeGirl: Normal-sized Fujimoto and ''HUGE'' Granmammare. is ''really'' tall, but Granmamare in her normal form is at least a hundred feet! She can shrink herself a lot to almost-human size, resemble a human (sort of), but she's still head and shoulders taller than Lisa.even in this form, she looks about eight feet tall!



* WellIntentionedExtremist: Fujimoto appears very similar to Jung Zorndyke of ''Anime/BlueSubmarineNo6''. In the beginning. He quickly becomes [[spoiler:a HarmlessVillain because Ponyo accidentally foils his plans to cover the world with a prehistoric ocean and at the end he is only genuinely worried for his daughter and for the planet]].

Added DiffLines:

* Youkai: Fujimoto, Ponyo, and Ponyo's sisters are ambiguous supernatural creatures that are most likely youkai (or half-youkai demigods, in the cases of Ponyo and her sisters).

* AnthropomorphicPersonification: Ponyo's mother Granmammare is apparently the personification of the sea. She is also an archetype, the Great Mother. Does that mean Fujimoto [[DidYouJustRomanceCthulhu scored with]] [[WebVideo/YuGiOhTheAbridgedSeries the ocean? What a freaky fish guy!]]
