* StateSec: Rare heroic example, as the protagonists are part of Public Security Section Nine. They operate with great autonomy, are only ever seen reporting to the Prime Minister or the Minster of Home Affairs, regularly violate laws which would bind other governmental organizations, and thanks to virtually no oversight, [[spoiler: almost]] never get caught doing so. While Section Nine itself is only a small elite team of mostly ex-military operatives with a small support staff and a lot of cutting-edge equipment, they are still only one of at least eight other Public Security Sections, each with a different structure and area of responsibility. What little is known about the other Sections places them more within government control. Section 1 covers internal investigations within Japan, similar to the FBI. Section 4 is a group of Rangers, like the Navy Seals. Section 6 works like the CIA. Other sections fill in roles similar to the Drug Enforcement Agency and medical investigations.
** Played with: the [[EliteMooks Umibozu]] in ''[[Anime/GhostInTheShellStandAloneComplex Stand Alone Complex]]'' do qualify as a fully equipped State Sec army, complete with PoweredArmor, [[GunshipRescue gunships]], and an [[CoolBoat amphibious assault carrier]], operate outside the military's chain of command, and do not officially exist.

* EarlyInstallmentWeirdness: Character dynamics within Section 9 are very different in the first few chapters of the original manga than in the later chapters, and the adaptations. Batou is a dumbass. Everyone seems to hate Togusa. Most jarringly, the relationship between Aramaki and the rest of the team is mutually distrustful and antagonistic. At one point, Batou ''blows up Aramaki's car.'' '''As a prank.'''

* TechnicalPacifist: Aramaki is too old to do any fighting. He's always been the political leader of Section 9 who takes care of the paperwork, and doesn't have a violent bone in his body. However, when he learns that Section 1 was trying to hunt down and kill Motoko as part of a gambit they got caught up in, he pulls out a gun and cocks it right in the face of Section 1's leader without a second thought, ordering him to call off his men.

* LonelyBachelorPad: In ''Rise'', young Motoko Kusanagi's apartment is pretty sparse - consisting of a four walls, a bed, a bathroom, and a chair. This is in stark contrast to the apartment she shares with her boyfriend in the original manga, which is more decorated - at least until it's blown up.

* AlternateContinuity[=/=]{{Revision}}: When Shirow Masamune first set out to write a sequel to ''Ghost in the Shell'', he published what would become ''Human Error Processor'' in a magazine. When it was time to give it a stand-alone, paperback release, he'd realized that he had a much greater story to write, and released ''[=Man/Machine Interface=]'', without saying a word of what he'd done. (Shirow is notoriously secretive.) The fan-reaction was... Less than stellar, and eventually ''Human Error Processor'' was released as ''[=GITS 1.5=]''. While the two sequels can be taken as a continuous continuity from ''Ghost in the Shell'', there are some finer details that don't quite match up.
