* AdaptationInducedPlotHole: Although mostly consistent (helped by two breaks), a few plotholes caused by the anime have occurred.
** Ending 10 shows Kamui with black hair when he actually has orange hair like his sister and mother. When asked about this, Ginpachi-sensei... throws the letter in the bin.
** The Beninzakura movie includes a flashback scene that strongly implies that Gintoki was taken in later by Shouyo after Takasugi and Katsura; however it's established later on that it was the other way around. Unsurprisingly, when the anime and manga made that establishment, Sorachi/Ginpachi-sensei lampshaded the problem when they answered fanmail asking about it and promptly made up a deliberately nonsense explanation (which was that instead of introducing Gintoki to the class, Shouyo was actually just asking around for clean underwear for him and then told him to wipe his ass with the book).



* {{Bishounen}}: Okita is by WordOfGod the token bishounen. Katsura and Kamui also count, and one should certainly not forget about Honjo from Takamagahara host club. Shoyo could be considered too, after his face has been revealed.

*** In the sequence of Gintoki facing all his important enemies, Shoyo is shown after Takasugi, which is a possible hint to 1) [[spoiler:Gintoki being the one to kill Shoyou during the war in exchange for Katsura and Takasugi's lives]], and/or 2) the next arc where [[spoiler:he eventually meets Utsuro whom is revealed to be Shoyou (sort of)]].
*** The Shogun is shown in the reflection of the third kunai along with Sarutobi and Hattori, hinting at the Oniwabanshuu's role as well as his connection to them.

** Parodied in the ''Gintama: Shiroyasha Koutan'' special where a four-minute trailer of an epic-looking movie about the Joui War (which includes a fake scene of Takasugi losing his eye to an Amanto who supposedly killed Shoyou) is shown. Shinpachi marvels at how good it will be, only to be told that the movie is fake and is never going to happen.

* OffModel: Odd-looking shots or errors sometimes happen. One anime example is when ''Gintama.'' shows the scene of Takasugi, Katsura and Gintoki going their separate ways after Shouyo was killed, and Takasugi is shown with both eyes intact despite losing his left eye to Oboro just earlier!

** [[{{Catchphrase}} It's not Zura, it's Katsura.]][[note]]In Japanese: "Zura ja nai, Katsura da."[[/note]]
** It's not Prince Baka, it's Prince Hata.
** It's not Kintoki, it's Gintoki.

to:

** [[{{Catchphrase}} It's There is Katsura's {{Catchphrase}} which is, "It's not Zura, it's Katsura.]][[note]]In " [[note]]In Japanese: "Zura ja nai, Katsura da."[[/note]]
"[[/note]] Turned out Gintoki was the one who named his as such as kids, and only because he was too lazy to add the "ka". The name's been stuck ever since, with many other people accidentally or intentionally using the nickname to address him and Gintoki seemingly forgotten Zura isn't his actual name.
** It's not Poor Prince Baka, it's Hata is constantly called Prince Hata.
Idiot (''Baka Ouji'') by many people, including his own grandfather. Parodied in his TV interview where the interviewer has to correct himself after nearly calling him Prince Idiot, only to do the opposite later on when he starts to call him by his proper title but stops and ''then'' calls him Prince Idiot, much to Hata's chagrin. He eventually doesn't even bother with the "prince" bit and just calls him Idiot.
** It's It is a running gag that Gintoki will be misnamed as Kintoki for whatever reason. This includes the ditzy Sakamoto calling him this when reuniting with him after 10 years (and never stops calling him it until a lot later), and an episode where Gintoki is trialing an RPG game but there's not Kintoki, it's Gintoki.enough character spaces for his name (ぎんとき) so the people shortened it to Kintoki (きんとき, without the dakuten/quotation mark).
** When Gintoki has to pretend to be Okita's best friend in front of his sister Mitsuba, Gintoki fails to remember his first name (Sougo) correctly and calls him Souichiro. PlayedForLaughs when he later calls him [[Manga/DeathNote Souichiro Yagami]] and Takeshi Kaga (the name of the ''actor'' of the aforementioned character in the live-action movie).



* EyepatchOfPower: Kyubei and Takasugi.

to:

* EvolvingCredits:
** The 8th opening eventually adds Katsura, Takasugi and Sakamoto running alongside Gintoki in the sequence of him during the war.
** After he's formally introduced and is shown to be one of the villains, the 15th opening/second ''Gintama°'' opening shows Nobunobu's full face instead of the back of his head.
** When the Shogun Assassination arc begins, the 25th ending/third ''Gintama°'' ending expands a few more scenes to help relate to the arc.
*** In the sequence of Gintoki facing all his important enemies, Shoyo is shown after Takasugi, which is a possible hint to 1) [[spoiler:Gintoki being the one to kill Shoyou during the war in exchange for Katsura and Takasugi's lives]], and/or 2) the next arc where [[spoiler:he eventually meets Utsuro whom is revealed to be Shoyou (sort of)]].
*** The Shogun is shown in the reflection of the third kunai along with Sarutobi and Hattori, hinting at the Oniwabanshuu's role as well as his connection to them.
*** Kagura and Kamui nod their heads slightly with a look of determination and blood-lust respectively in their eyes, hinting at their upcoming fight.
** The ''Gintama.'' opening [[spoiler:adds in Takasugi running alongside the rest of the Joui Four]] from Episode 7 (episode 323) onwards, after [[spoiler:Takasugi's woken up from his coma and has now joined in the fight]].
* EyepatchOfPower: Kyubei and Takasugi.Takasugi both wear eyepatches due to losing their eyes in fights. Both look more bad-ass thanks to that.



* NeverTrustATrailer: The in-magazine [[PostEpisodeTrailer post chapter previews]] attracted some criticism in Japan because they were always made in the early stages of writing the chapter in question, meaning that the preview and the actual story always ended up completely different to the point of being funny. It was quite common to have a wacky-sounding preview like "Gin enters a marathon!" only for next week's story to be deadly serious. Very likely intentional, this being ''Gintama'' after all.

** Opening 18 (first opening of ''Gintama.'') introduces a new character... who very much looks like Kagura, and the scene is followed by a distressed Kagura running. Ending 27 (first ending of ''Gintama.'') then shows a family picture of this mysterious woman, Umibozu, and Kagura and Kamui as kids, which basically confirms she is Kagura's mother and hints that the family's background will be revealed.

* MouthFullOfSmokes: PlayedForLaughs by Hijikata when he realizes the lottery ticket he got given matches the winning number. Incredibly nervous about this realisation, he excuses himself out by 1) stuffing ''all'' of his cigarettes into his mouth, 2) lighting them while saying he's just run out, and 3) making a run for it as he claims he's going to go buy more. (Note that he just bought cigarettes earlier that day from the place he got the ticket, too.)



* MundaneObjectAmazement: In Episode 111, Kagura received an umbrella with a flower pattern from Gintoki. This is followed by a montage (with a nice melody) of Kagura strolling around the streets happily, the montage is repeated with slightly heavy rain with more rock added into the music. She still went out with the umbrella even when there's a typhoon rampaging outside.

** Gintoki aside in its introductory chapter/episode, nobody ever comments on how bizarre Katsura's friend Elizabeth looks; it resembling to be a cross between a BedsheetGhost and a penguin, plus it also seems to just be a costume, as its legs appear to be those of a man's on the odd occasion where they're visible. It's possibly justified by the fact that the world is filled with all the manner of aliens, but even by their standards, it's still extremely weird-looking.
