* AnyoneCanDie: Even in his child-oriented works, he doesn't hesitate to confront the audience with the death of beloved characters.
** He even killed off [[spoiler: Astro Boy]] and only brought him back after massive complaints from fans.
* BigNameFan: Tezuka was a big fan of Walt Disney. Tezuka was relatively unknown in America and Disney couldn't even name a work of his when they first met during Tezuka's first trip to America to promote ''Astro Boy''. However, Disney actually knew ''Astro Boy'' and thought it was pretty good.
** He was also a fan of Carl Barks, see FanArt.
* BreakingTheFourthWall: And how!
** He even has a character based on himself in different roles, for example a cameo as a taxi driver in ''Adolf'' or as nameless mangaka who gets involved in a story in ''Black Jack''. In reprints of ''Astro Boy'', [[NoFourthWall he is seen discussing the stories with Astro]] as a sort of introduction.
** One word: Hyotantsugui.
* CerebusRollercoaster: ''The Crater'' is this, with many gags, bizarre supernatural plots and CruelAndUnusualDeath.
** His entire body of work is one big CerebusRollercoaster.

CruelAndUnusualDeath.

* {{Disneyesque}}: His female characters in particular. However, in general his art style is much more reminiscent to the zany, extravagant MindScrew FleischerStudios cartoons, so partly a subversion.

* ''{{Alabaster}}'' (His least known and most controversial work. A surprisingly bloody, violent series with racial overtones. Subverts most of his other [[ReusedCharacterDesign recurring characters]]: for example, the classic 'IdealHero' type from his other series is a narcissistic and sadistic rapist here.)

*** This was even used as a plot point in ''Manga/{{Dororo}}''. [[spoiler:[[SamusIsAGirl the eponymous sidekick is a girl]]. She has long eyelashes and other feminine features, but you would probably dismiss these clues because of Tezuka's style of drawing young boys]].
