* TitleDrop: The final arc of the series is called the "Silver Soul" arc. Though the spelling they use for the arc is a different reading ("Shirogane no Tamashii" rather than "Gin Tama"), this was the intended reading of the series title.

** The beginning of the first Episode of the Kagura's Boyfriend Arc of the Porori Hen: Gintoki and Kagura angrily stomped on Shinpachi for mentioning [[Film/Gintama2017 his live-action actor from the 2017 film]], which strongly assumes that either this was a nod to CreatorBacklash and/or poor (fandom) reception of the movie.

** [[spoiler:Post "Silver Soul", Kondo talks about his retirement from the Shisengumi and his being a househusband for his new wife. In the same scene, Tae appears to be pregnant, eats the food Kondo serves her, and Shinpachi is (even more) used to his presence in their house. When Otose and Catherine believe that Tae and Kondo got hitched off screen, Shinpachi shows them the latter man's wedding photo... and he turns out not only to be politically married to the gorilla princess from way back, he also just cooks for Tae, and as a result her swollen belly is just a full gut.]]

* AnachronismStew: Aliens (known as Amanto) forcibly open up Japan instead of Commodore Perry and crew, bringing all sorts of new-fangled technology to Edo (space travel, electric fans, bazookas, etc). And since ''Gintama'' is supposed to be a GagSeries, you get things like the main character being a big fan of Weekly Shonen Jump (most notably ''Manga/{{Bleach}}'', since he uses a sword too, as well as manga set around the same time that ''Gintama'' is supposed to take place in), {{idol singer}}s, and countless references to modern pop culture mixed in with more traditional fare, like TheShinsengumi, the Joi resistance, and the Oniwabanshu (though disbanded in the series). They even make reference to the very figures and countries that would have been involved in Japan's opening in some gags as if it still happened that way.

* TheShinsengumi: With bazookas. Chances are your impressions of the Shinsengumi will never be the same again.

* CompositeCharacter: [[spoiler:Katsura]] becomes Japan's first Prime Minister in the epilogue, combining by proxy [[spoiler: PM Hirobumi Ito and Katsura's historical counterpart Kogoro, all while he's [[NoCelebritiesWereHarmed doing a Donald Trump impression]] to boot.]]



* TheGreatestStoryNeverTold: In the second segment of episode 21, Gintoki essentially saves the world while looking for an electric fan. Even though the episode's DamselInDistress ''autographed'' the fan, Shinpachi and Kagura still refused to believe him.

** [[spoiler:After the conclusion of the Silver Soul arc, Gintoki's role in it went unnoticed by the public, especially after he skipped town to break the Odd Jobs fellowship. The man who got all the credit ended up being ''Hasegawa'', of all people, netting himself a cushy life as a war hero and a bit of a swelled head.]]



* PurelyAestheticEra: In this series, AnachronismStew is very much in play, making the use of technology, pop culture and whatnot in the supposedly Meiji era pretty hilarious and bizarre. It gets to a point where you start to wonder how Japan will ever make it to Modern history as we know it, considering the country basically got a head start against everybody else in the world. [[spoiler: The Silver Soul arc answers that little problem by Gengai using a device against the invading ships that renders ''all'' tech, including all the great advances made on Earth, permanently useless.]]

** The epilogue takes a few potshots at epilogue endings in manga, with Catherine and Otose complaining about the main cast suddenly hooking up in the finale and fearing that they'll get [[PairTheSpares paired with someone they barely know]].
