* BigScrewedUpFamily: The Sohma clan is all over the map with the myriad ways to screw with a child - if a method of parenting can cause psychological problems, rest assured that at least one member of the family is doing it. As indicated by the flashback showing Ren's early days with Akira, the nasty backbiting and poisoning opinions for influence has been going on for generations, and the penultimate chapter implies that this might have been part of the Sohma family curse as well. To put it another way, there's a grand total of ''two'' caring biological parents in this family still alive at the start of the series, Hiro's mother and Ritsu's mother, and the latter's parenting has its own issues. Including living adoptive parents bumps that number up to ''three''.

*** Haru's mother appears very briefly in a later chapter, telling Haru that he's got a call about [[spoiler:Rin being in the hospital]] and seeming pretty concerned about him. He also mentions that he isn't sure if she'll yell at him or laugh over how he went Black and trashed a classroom. On the other hand, it was mentioned that he suffered emotional abuse from ''other'' (unnamed) relatives, mainly because he was the spirit of the Ox and the myth portrays the Ox as being a dumb animal that was manipulated by the rat. This is the cause of his anger issues, which his parents enrolled him in karate classes to help him deal with.

* NoNameGiven: The three middle school girls who want to be delinquents in order to emulate Uotani never say their names. The author briefly discusses this on an aside on the next volune, claiming that she never bothered to give them names because they were secondary characters, but that she would have loved giving them a bigger role, were she given the time to do so.

Tohru's eyes are changed from brown to blue and Kyo's bracelet is no longer red and white (which changes its origins). There are other hair and eye variations too, however Tohru's the most prominent.



* AdultsAreUseless: The absolute Sohma family hierarchy with Akito on top means that nobody prevents or intervenes in the event of physical or emotional abuse that occurs regularly within the family at Akito's hands regardless of what they think. {{Discussed|Trope}} and lampshaded from time to time by Hatori and Shigure: Hatori laments from time to time that "[the older zodiac members] really suck at [protecting the younger ones from Akito]," while Shigure prefers to [[TheChessmaster allow things to play out]].

* {{Animorphism}}: There is one person corresponding to each animal in the EasternZodiac, as well as a cat. Hair color and personality appear to be linked to the animal spirit the person possesses, which causes problems for the people cursed by animals with exotic coloring.

* TheBeastmaster: The Zodiac members do have the ability to attract and (sometimes) control whatever animal they are possessed by. However, only Yuki is seen actually utilizing the latter ability in the early chapters to help him dig out Tohru's belongings after her tent is buried in the aftermath of a landslide.
** Kyo is regularly mocked by people who don't know his secret, who suggest that he should become a "Cat Trainer" given how cats are attracted to him.
