* LighterAndSofter: Compared to the original movie and, to a certain extent, ''Lilo & Stitch: The Series''. However, the violence in this show is, while still fantasy violence, greater compared to ''The Series''. The English dub actually toned this down, but apparently the edits there were not apparently not enough to prevent it from being taken off the air in the US, assuming that it was taken down there because of the violence.[[note]]Japanese children's programming have looser standards compared to the US.[[/note]]

* TookALevelInJerkass: Angel this go around. She's spoiled, demanding, and often cruel to Stitch, and has dumped him in favor of someone else no less than three times. This can be attributed to her having spent years in-universe as a popular singer, picking up several diva traits along the way.

Not related to the [[PilotMovie pilot]] [[WesternAnimation/StitchTheMovie movie]] for ''WesternAnimation/LiloAndStitchTheSeries'', which had the same name though with TheMovie followed by it. The dub attempts to connect ''Stitch!'' to the film conclusion of ''Lilo & Stitch: The Series'', ''WesternAnimation/LeroyAndStitch'', in the first episode, which wasn't attempted in the original Japanese version.

Among the experiments under Hamsterviel's control with the "H" are Hammerface (Experiment 033), Slushy (Experiment 523), Splodyhead (Experiment 619), Spike (Experiment 319), Babyfier (Experiment 151), Plasmoid (Experiment 617), Sinker (Experiment 602), Kixx (Experiment 601) and Morpholomew (Experiment 316).

* CharacterizationMarchesOn: Experiment 627, while still Stitch's AlwaysSomeoneBetter rival, makes a complete 180 in personality, going from the wild, slobbering [[TheHyena hyena-like]] whose only dialogue was "[[PokemonSpeak Evil]]!" in the original series, to a WickedCultured eloquent-speaking gentleman with some {{noble demon}} traits after saving Stitch and his love interest, Angel, from being crushed by Hamsterviel's ship despite Jumba proclaiming him completely incapable of turning good in the original series. Could count as {{fridge brilliance}} considering the series took place after Stitch left his original Hawaii home where Lilo grew up into an older girl, so 627 must have had time to mature.

* DubInducedPlotHole: The English dub makes an attempt to connect it to the old continuity by having Jumba claim Stitch ran away from Lilo as she got a boyfriend. [[BrokenAesop What about Ohana]]? Even more glaring in the dub for season 3, where the explanation given for Lilo and Stitch's separation is not only about the same as the original Japanese version, but directly contradicts Jumba's explanation. Well, [[HandWave Jumba could have just been speculating]]...
** Also, Gantu and Reuben have gone back to Dr. Hamsterviel just because Gantu was [[InsistentTerminology dishonorably discharged]] [[DisproportionateRetribution for singing karaoke at the holiday party]]. What's funny about that is being dishonorably discharged is ''worse'' than being fired.

* MarketBasedTitle: Some non-English dubs title the show ''Yuna & Stitch'' in their languages.



** There was also Twang, another flute carrying cat/rabbit-looking experiment who grew stronger the more attention and sympathy it got from those around it. This included framing Stitch in a {{wounded gazelle gambit}} so Yuna and her family would take its side. Databases suggested that with enough attention it would have become a hulking not-so-cute monster.

* ScienceFantasy: Considering the presence of yōkai, a stone that can grant wishes, and whatnot in what has always been a soft sci-fi franchise.

The ''WesternAnimation/{{American Dragon|Jake Long}}'' crossover, anyone?)
