* ShoutOut: The numerous, humorous anachronisms include [[StarWars Yoda]], ET, and a character turning into Manga/BlackJack for a panel. Lampshaded with, ''"You thought I was Black Jack? Wow, you must be really out of it!"''

* {{Deconstruction}}: Arguably of the entire history of the Buddha, particularly his role as MessianicArchetype. For one thing, the series takes a look at how Buddha left his life as a prince to become a ascetic, with it showing how while what he did was apparently necessary, he still left his father and grandmother, his wife, his unborn child, and his kingdom behind, which his father ''did not take well''. Later on, [[spoiler: it is revealed that Buddha's homeland was invaded and conquered, with his people being subjugated, and his father being in a ''horrid'' state of health. After a sequence of events leads to both the deaths of even more of his people as well as one of his longtime friends, Buddha breaks down and laments on how he wasted his life, abandoned his family, and how {{Humans Are The Real Monsters}} who may be very well irredeemable. He snaps out of it soon enough, but it's still a eye-raiser to see the Buddha of all people say all of that.]]
* DecoyProtagonist: Chapra, who is the focus in the beginning [[spoiler: and doesn't live past the first volume.]]

* GoodJobBreakingItHero: In ''Ananda,'' Buddha is challanged to burn a stack of logs without touching them. As he refuses to, not wanting to show off, Ananda comes running up with a torch: Buddha's ''follower'' burned them. So Buddha passes the trial - and then everything goes up in flames. Nice job burning it, Ananda.

* DoesThisRemindYouOfAnything: A conversation between Tatta and Yatala ("You're the first guy I've met who gets who I feel." "My thoughts never understood. I talk to you. I feel you understand.") reads like a ComingOutStory.
