* ConspicuousCGI: Being visually innovative apparently makes you bet on the wrong horse sometimes.
* FamousLastWords: [[ButNowIMustGo "Now excuse me, I have to go."]] The wording is said to be a specific phrase you'd use if you were, say, at work and called away, having to leave your coworkers to finish a project without you.
* FourIsDeath: Rather eerily, his fourth film,''Paprika'', was his final theatrical film...[[DevelopmentHell to be released anyway]].
* GenreBusting: Most of his films have [[ThisIsYourPremiseOnDrugs strange or unconventional premises.]]
* HeAlsoDid: Wrote, storyboarded and directed the fifth episode of the original ''{{Manga/JoJos Bizarre Adventure Stardust Crusaders}}'' OVA for {{Creator/APPP}} (the episode with the [[{{MemeticMutation}} memetic scene]] where DIO stares up at a 7UP sign). He died before {{Creator/David Production}} animated the more well-known (nowadays) version of the anime, so we'll never know what he might have thought of their take on it.

* PromotedFanboy: Kon was a fan of Yasutaka Tsutsui and Yoshikazu Takeuchi, and adapted works from the both of them [[Literature/{{Paprika}} into]] [[Anime/{{PerfectBlue}} films.]] He was also a fan of Susumu Hirasawa long before he first worked with him. [[invoked]]

* SignatureStyle: Satoshi Kon was known and loved for combining imagination with realism. Also, very smooth editing that involved a lot of [[MatchCut match cuts]]; when the editing was not smooth, he was quickly cutting to a shot that only lasted a few frames.
