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 movie conclusion of ''Lilo & Stitch: The Series'', ''WesternAnimation/LeroyAndStitch'', in the first episode, which wasn't attempted in the original Japanese version.

* BitchInSheepsClothing: Zuruko/Tigerlily. Much to the chagrin of both Stich and Yuna, her cousin. [[CharacterizationMarchesOn Her behavior somewhat improved over the course of the seasons]]. More so in season 3.

** In fact, each time a “cousin” of Stitch appears that has a yellow “H” somewhere on them, they’re under Hamsterviel’s control. 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.

* DubNameChange: Certain characters, mainly Yuna's classmates, have received Western names in the dub (Piko is Penny, Sae is Sasha, Reika is Jessica, etc). It's business as usual for an English dub of a kids anime, what makes it more glaring is that there's no attempt to hide that the series is set in Japan otherwise. Surely they could have kept the names as is?

* {{Flanderization}}: Oddly enough, a case of ''reverse'' flanderization. The end of the original movie (and Stitch Has a Glitch) see Stitch speaking in more or less complete sentences, while in the series, he speaks his alien tongue and only scattered fragments of English. Here, he's taken the next logical step and speaking increasingly fluent English/Japanese.

* NonstandardCharacterDesign: Stitch and all the other alien characters are drawn using the same style from the movie. All the new human characters, however, are done in a more traditionally {{Animesque}} fashion. Also, [[spoiler: Lilo and her daughter]] are drawn in the same style as the movie.
* NotSoHarmlessVillain: In the second to last episode, there was Dark End, an experiment created by the anime-only villain Deila to defeat Stitch. Not only was it an [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=j974lSZcW6M adorable (more so than Stitch) long-eared rabbit-like experiment with androgynous voice and features]], but it was powerful enough to cause a giant fissure in a soccer ball field just by stamping its foot and breaking open a giant containment pod containing Gantu, 625, and Hamsterveil by lightly tapping its claw on the glass. And finally, completely [[CurbStompBattle stomped]] Stitch till he lost consciousness twice, though not without making him undergo a {{humiliation conga}} first and wiped the floor with Stitch's nine other cousins. It wasn't until, through some contrived power gained from the love and support of Yuna and her friends that he was able to stand a fighting chance against Dark End.

There also was a [[UndeadChild boy vampire]] [[OurVampiresAreDifferent who likes candy instead of blood]], a [[OurWerebeastsAreDifferent werecreature]] if not [[OurWerewolvesAreDifferent werewolf]] and what looks like the FrankensteinsMonster.
* SequelSeries: A sequel series to a sequel series, no less. This status is fully cemented in an episode in the third season, where it is revealed [[spoiler: that Stitch had ran away from Lilo after he thought she'd abandoned him, with them being finally reunited in that episode.]]

* AscendedExtra: Due to their [[EnsembleDarkhorse extreme popularity]] in Japan, [[ShockAndAwe Sparky]] (Experiment 221) and [[DistaffCounterpart Angel]] (Experiment 624) made prominent appearances in the show, the latter not having to prove herself to Yuna near as much as she did Lilo, nor did she have to be [[ExecutiveMeddling locked away until the end of the series]]; As a result, she's gotten much more screen time.
