* ReusedCharacterDesign: A signature style of Tezuka. Black Jack is special for his work in that Black Jack and Pinoko are only reused when he specifically is trying to cameo them in other works. Dr. Hounma, who's also a rather unique design, is used again in nearly every major Tezuka work, and prominently in ''{{Phoenix}}'', showing Hounma's continued {{Reincarnation}}s all end up as TheWoobie. And of course, ''Black Jack'' features Tezuka's good old standard cast, including Astro Boy, Acytelene Lamp, Ham Egg, and pretty much every recurring Tezuka character ever.

Added DiffLines:

* RealityEnsues: Black Jack operates on an alien, and demands payment. He tells the aliens to give him a lot of money, using a bill as an example of earth money. [[GenreSavvy He also tells them not to rob a bank or anything]]. [[spoiler: Cue the end of the chapter, where Black Jack is in jail for counterfeiting. The well-meaning aliens duplicated the same bill exactly, down to the serial number.]]

Added DiffLines:

* SelfSurgery:
** Black Jack once performed a full surgery on his own abdomen, while being circled by hungry dingos.
** Black Jack also talked a quack doctor through performing surgery on him, which the quack had never done before; soon after, the quack declared his intention to go to medical school for real.
** Another time finds him performing surgery on his leg instead of letting another doctor amputate it.

* DeadlyDoctor: He can be one, if he's threatened. Fortunately, he's a nice person most of the time. See {{Badass} and KnifeNut.

* AuthorTract: Mostly against abuses in the medical establishment, but usually saved by good characterization & Blackjack's sheer awesome. One example that really sticks out, though is ''Dingoes'', a GreenAesop about the dangers of pesticides & introduced species that erroneously attributes the arrival of the titular beasts in Australia & subsequent damage they caused to the ecosystem to European colonists, when they actually predate Europe's colonial age & are believed to have been brought by an earlier wave of humans in prehistoric times. Whether this was intentional on Tezuka's part in order to shoehorn in an anti-colonialist message, or if it was a simple mistake is unclear. At any rate, considering this episode also features [[SugarWiki/MomentOfAwesome Blackjack extracting a parasite from his own intestines while the Dingoes are trying to eat him]], it's hard to bear a grudge.

* BreakingTheFourthWall: from people complaining it's too late and there's not enough ''panels'' left, to guys jumping and bonking their head on the panel border.

Added DiffLines:

* GoodDocBadDoc: Though he charges exorbitant amounts of money for his services, sincerely fights for the lives of his patients; he has a Dr. Kevorkian-esque rival who is presented sympathetically (as in, he also wants to end unnecessary suffering), but who vehemently disagrees with Blackjack.
