** In episode 99, Gintoki and co. play a video game contest to win a parody of the Nintendo Wii. The final round is a ''Franchise/DragonQuest'' MMO parody in which Gintoki ends up using the village elder (and later the elder's corpse) as a weapon. [[RuleOfFunny Things get crazier when Okita and Kagura show up respectively wielding the King and the Demon King as weapons.]]

* RetroGaming: Nearly everyone makes references to ''Franchise/DragonQuest'' and other famous game franchises throughout the series. Katsura in particular is a big fan of the Mega Drive and Famicon. Goes the distance in episode 167 where Tama gets sick and transforms into an 8-bit sprite, complete with ''Dragon Quest'' style dialogue windows, earning EXP from going shopping and an inventory full of standard ''Dragon Quest'' items like medical herbs and a cypress stick. Then again in 168, where the opening segment is a brief 8-bit game sequence starring Tama. The rest of the story arc is one big ''Dragon Quest'' parody.

** What does the author do when the campaign against Ecchi appears? Give us an UnwantedHarem Arc of course!

* GenreRoulette: Gintama cycles between being a gag manga, completely serious battle manga, and heartwarming slice-of-life(well, as close as it can get in AlternateUniverse historical Edo, anyways). According the WordOfGod each chapter is its own genre.

* FanserviceExtra: While some of the fanservice in the show is provided by the characters, especially Sacchan, a lot of the fanservice comes from scantily clad extras, including dominatrixes in leather, poledancing strippers and prostitutes wearing their kimonos off the shoulders.

* FakeMemories: In the Kintama Arc, Kintoki (the evil robot counterpart of Gintoki) brainwashed almost ''everyone'' in Kabukicho and Yoshiwara with soundwaves to forget a certain main character named Gintoki Sakata. He replaces all mention and image of the silver-perm haired with his own golden-straight perm haired identity... to become the series' protagonist! Except that he couldn't replace the memories of the man himself, as well of those of Sadaharu and Tama, because the wave didnít work on animals or other robots.

** In another episode Kagura uses Okita as a weapon. And then took a picture of her victorious aftermath.
** Katsura, when he's transformed into a cat, rips off his own tail as a weapon, in the Kabukicho Stray Cat Arc. In that same arc, Kondou (in his gorilla form) uses his schlong as a weapon.

A third series, ''[[NewSeasonNewName Gintama°]]'' (note the circle), was announced and began airing in April 2015. Unsurprisingly, Sunrise opted out of producing it, and were replaced by Creator/NamcoBandai's newly-formed animation branch, [[Creator/BandaiNamcoPictures [=BNPictures=]]]. This series ended in March 2016, with the last episode teasing viewers with a screenshot from the next arc, implying another anime is already in the works. Indeed, a fourth series titled ''Gintama.'' (yes, period included) aired from January 9 - March 27 2017, with another series dedicated to reruns called ''Yorinuke Gintama'' airing the following week. Much like the teaser for ''Gintama.'', a trailer shown at the 2017 anime event Hana Matsuri teased a few seconds of the next arc, again implying the next anime is in the making.

* NoFourthWall: ''[[UpToEleven Present in the whole series.]]'' It's worth mentioning that the characters often badmouth and make fun of both the animation staff and Creator/{{Sunrise}} (and their successor, BN Pictures), the ''author himself'', the companies involved with the DVD home releases (Creator/{{Aniplex}}) and the merchandise, such as videogames (Creator/NamcoBandai), their ''voice ators'', etc.

''[[BigDamnMovie Be Forever Yorozuya]]''. released between the second and third seasons, ended rather conclusively, so during the opening of the third season, Gintoki apologizes for deceiving the audience because he didn't know the DVDs of the series would sell so good to warrant another season.

* BitingTheHandHumor: Everything about JUMP, especially the immaturity of its comics, is constantly mocked. Gin is treated as a loser for reading it, all glimpses we see of comics within it are [[StylisticSuck scribble-quality]], and any member of the Shinsengumi who reads it must ''commit seppuku'' to atone.
