** BunnyEarsLawyer



** TertiarySexualCharacteristics: Constantly averted. Almost all of his younger male characters have long eyelashes and some (i.e. Kimba the White Lion, Astro Boy) even end up looking feminine.
*** 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]].



* {{Expy}}: As mentioned above.
* FamousAncestor: He was a descendant of UsefulNotes/HattoriHanzo.
* FamousLastWords: "I'm begging you, let me work!"/"Please, let me keep working!"[[note]]頼むから仕事をさせてくれ!, ''Tanomu kara shigoto wo sasete kure!''[[/note]] The context was a nurse taking away his pens and paper, insisting he needed rest as he was on his deathbed with stomach cancer, but he will always be remembered [[RageAgainstTheHeavens screaming it at the gods]], pleading with them for enough time for one last book for his fans to enjoy...



* NiceHat: His beret.



* {{Workaholic}}: As reflected by his aforementioned FamousLastWords, the man himself was the absolute apotheosis of Japan's legendary workaholism. He spent virtually every waking hour from early adulthood right up until the day he died drawing manga. Practically the only leisure time he allowed himself was watching films, although it did give him a chance to see what his competitors in the entertainment industry were up to and gave him a source of inspiration, as many of his works played off themes from his favorite movies.

Osamu Tezuka (1928-1989), [[FanNickname a.k.a. The Father of Manga]], is widely credited for laying the foundations for much, if not most, of modern [[{{Manga}} Japanese comics]] and [[{{Anime}} animation]]. His prolific output and activity throughout the years has been legendary in the industry, with only a fraction having even been translated for foreign consumption. He created over 700 comics with more than 150,000 pages total, the second TV anime ever made, the first one with an episode length of 25 minutes, and the very first {{shoujo}}. His production spans more or less every conceivable genre, and is sometimes so complex it does it ''in the same manga''.

* ''Manga/{{MW}}'' (A suspense-thriller centered around the twisted relationship between Father Garai, a guilt-ridden, secretly gay delinquent-turned-priest and his lover, Yuuki Michio, an amoral monster -- and occasional VillainousCrossdresser -- who plans to cause TheEndOfTheWorldAsWeKnowIt. Today it is chiefly remembered for the well-known but unsubstantiated {{Fanon}} theory that the main villain of Creator/NaokiUrasawa's celebrated ''Anime/{{Monster}}'' series was inspired by Michio.)

* 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.
