* AlternateHistory: Becomes pretty obvious early on when locomotives that can drive on roads at speed (no [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Locomotive_Acts Locomotive Acts]], perhaps?) and zeppelins show up in 1866 (at least a good few decades before they would have otherwise). Also explains how the Great London Exhibition is now taking place in 1866 instead of 1851 (in a different part of the city), and how the steam castle[[spoiler: can ram the [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tower_Bridge Tower Bridge]], which didn't even start construction for another 20 years in our universe]].

Brought to you by the creator of ''Manga/{{Akira}}'', Steamboy has the distinction of being the highest-budget anime movie ever made, and it shows in the beautiful animation and machine designs. Unfortunately, it flopped financially in the United States.

* TooDumbToLive: The O'Hara foundation courtyard has turned into a battle ground with explosions and smashed steam soldiers. Scarlett walks out into the middle of it with a parasol, oblivious to the carnage. Only a dead soldier finally reminds her that, explosions and gunfire are going up all around, and she could die.

* WhereAreTheyNowEpilogue / AndTheAdventureContinues - Shows the Steamboy AlternateTimeline in clips where [[spoiler: Lloyd Steam continues his pontificating to Ray, and bequeathing a final discovery (possibly electricity or light bulbs) to Ray before he dies and is buried, followed by a WWI style conflict with dirigibles burning to the ground and Tommy paratroopers, a new villain, Ray picking up a partner/sidekick, and Scarlett (having dyed her hair to match her name) standing proudly in front of a plane she flies.]]

** [[spoiler: He is shown next to Scarlett in front of her plane, implying he survived and she treats him better.]]



** Pretty much any character introduced in the first act in Manchester, but particularly Pete the foreman, Mrs. Steam (who nary merits a mention from her husband), the bullies, Clifford the paper boy, and Ray's friend and her brother who are staying over. Each has a scene devoted to them, then promptly vanishes from the plot.
*** Mrs.Steam is shown in one of the Epilogue pics, welcoming Ray back home.

*** At the very least, Mrs.Steam is Steam, Emma and her brother are shown in one of the Epilogue pics, welcoming Ray back home.

** Mr. Stephenson as well. He has his battle wagons sent out to stop the steam castle, then he's on board the royal navy vessel to stop it. When it it's frozen, apparently he got out and ran across the ice to the train yard to try to slow the castle with trains. When under attack, he orders a rifle brought to him, and tries to defend the train yard.

Added DiffLines:

* VillainBall: Firmly grasped by a pair of henchmen at the end - [[spoiler: while the actions of the one going after Ray outside is fairly reasonable, the one that tried crushing him with the crane only to be a victim of DeadlyDodging (also a case of this) was staying inside an unstable, steam-driven castle that everyone ''else'' had abandoned by that point]]. Must have been holding a grudge from the opening scene.
