* FollowTheLeader:
** It's believed that Baku Yumemakura's incredibly popular ''Onmyoji'' series (also made into a film of the same name) was written in response to the success of this novel (the first ''Onmyoji'' short story emerged 3 years after ''Teito Monogatari'' started being published).
** Within the franchise itself, the disgusting imagery in ''Doomed Megalopolis'' was most likely inspired by the commercial success of hyper violent, perverse "adult" anime like ''Legend of the Overfiend''. Also, the excessive perverse horror elements in ''Teito Monogatari Gaiden'' were most likely inspired by the commercial success of ''Doomed Megalopolis''.

* {{Onmyodo}}: The first modern fictional novel to popularize onmyodo mysticism in the Japanese media. The whole first portion of the novel is the battle between two rival factions of onmyoji. Only the Tsuchimikado family, the faction that serves the Emperor of Japan, is considered to be the official onmyoji.

*ChekhovsGun: The decorated arrow that Hirai wields in the first episode of ''Doomed Megalopolis''. The camera lingers over it during a couple of quiet, expositional scenes before it finally gets put to use in the climax.

* FromClonesToGenre: If "Modern day Onmyoji" (like Clamp's popular ''TokyoBabylon'' series) even qualifies as a genre, then it originated here.

* FengShui: Along with onmyodo magic, it was the first modern fictional work to popularize Feng Shui in the Japanese media. This popular interest would serve as a lead up to the academic feng shui "boom" in 1990's, where many Japanese scholars started studying the practice's influence in the history of their country.
