*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.

The novels won the Nihon Science Fiction Taisho Award in 1987, have sold around some 4 million copies in Japan alone, and are widely considered the first major work to popularize Onmyodo (Yin Yang) magic and Feng Shui in its native country. Of course the series immense success has resulted in several visual adaptations including films, manga and even a stage adaptation. In Japan, the most well known adaptation is the 1988 live action special effects film ''Tokyo: The Last Megalopolis''. However because western audiences aren't as inviting to Japanese live action SPFX films (Godzilla excluded), the most known adaptation in the west is the heavily stylized, DarkerAndEdgier 1991 anime adaptation known as ''Doomed Megalopolis''. Both adaptations are (very) abridged adaptations of only the first 1/3rd of the series.

* DivingSave: In the anime, Hirai does a rather spectacular one to save Kamo from a Kato blast in his apparition on the train station. Unfortunately, Kamo's two bodyguards are not so fast to put themselves out of danger and end eating the attack.

** Kyoka Izumi passes as this in the Western dubs of ''Doomed Megalopolis'', as his name wasn't mentioned in the anime and the dubbers probably didn't a clue about who he was. In the credits, he tend to appear as simply "the fortuneteller" or something like it.

** Kato's servant in the film doesn't have a name, or at least, her name is not mentioned. In the original novel though, her name is Hong Feng.

* RedshirtArmy: Tsuchimikado cultists are pretty much CannonFodder to Kato and his shikigami. More in the film than in the anime, however.

A historical fantasy novel published from 1985-1987, and written by Hiroshi Aramata, '''''Teito Monogatari''''' (literally "Tale of the Imperial Capital") is a retelling of the history of Tokyo from an occultist perspective, beginning with the Meiji Era and going up to the end of the 20th century. Upon his death, the samurai Taira no Masakado cursed the new city and its inhabitants. Over the course of the next hundred years, numerous characters, both fictional and historical, come into conflict with Yasunori Kato, an immortal villain out to harness Masakado's spirit to destroy the city.

The novel won the Nihon Science Fiction Taisho Award in 1987, has sold around some 4 million copies in Japan alone, and is widely considered the first major work to popularize Onmyodo (Yin Yang) magic and Feng Shui in its native country.
