* SeriesFauxnale: Gintoki [[LampshadeHanging lampshades]] the second movie's ending in the opening for the third season. Because ''[[BigDamnMovie Be Forever Yorozuya]]'' - released between the second and third seasons - sold enough DVDs of the series to warrant another season in spite of the conclusion of the film, Gintoki apologizes in a press conference during the opening of the third season, citing his wonder that the DVDs had sold so well.

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/BandaiNamcoEntertainment'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. A new season was announced for October 2017 as the "Porori Arc", this time covering the comedic and less plot-heavy chapters that were originally skipped in ''Gintama°'''s run. Additionally, a trailer shown at the 2017 Hana Matsuri event has implied that the adaptation of the next big arc is also in the making, and the season premiering after ''Gintama.'' adapts all of the comedic and filler arcs that were skipped.

The series had three [[TheMovie movie]] adaptations, with two adapting the infamous Benizakura arc, and one with an original plotline involving Gin jumping forward 10 years to a changed Edo. The second Benizakura movie was a live-action affair that premiered in 2017.

** The Beninzakura movie includes a flashback scene that strongly implies that Gintoki was taken in later by Shouyou 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, Shouyou was actually just asking around for clean underwear for him and then told him to wipe his ass with the book).

* GainaxEnding: Several fake ones, actually. The premise of episode 150 was that the show was abruptly ending due to lack of funds, so they threw together a [[GrandFinale final episode]].

** And of course a parody of ''the'' original GainaxEnding, with a frame by frame recreation of the original ''Anime/NeonGenesisEvangelion'' ending.

Instead, Shinpachi is off to a journey, bids farewell to the gang, and gets some final words from Gintoki... that are unfortunately lost thanks to PlotBasedVoiceCancellation, so all he hears is "You're a xxx!"

An English translation of the manga was published by Viz but cancelled after Volume 23 due to low sales. The anime is licensed by Creator/SentaiFilmworks, who have so far released the first season on 4 DVD sets, as well as the movie adaptation of the Benizakura Arc on DVD and Blu-Ray. The releases are (unfortunately) [[NoDubForYou sub-only]], though the movie came with an English dub and, according to TheOtherWiki, Sentai was considering releasing more of the show depending on how well the movie does. Instead, Website/{{Crunchyroll}} acquired the license and plans to release the entire series on Blu-ray and DVD with a complete English dub. The Latin American fans can rest easy too, since a dub of the whole series is planned for them as well.

** 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.
