''HakabaKitaro'' began life as a manga written between 1959 and 1969 by Shigeru Mizuki. Since then, the show has been adapted for television a total of five times, not counting live action works, all under the name of ''GeGeGeNoKitaro'', as the word 'Hakaba' (graveyard) was considered too dark for television back then. The manga would not receive a proper anime adaptation until the release of the latest in 2008, nearly 50 years later.

* AntiHero: Kitaro's main distinction between himself in this series, and his more heroic counterpart in ''Gegege'' is this. The Kitaro most know protects humans, or at worst plays scary pranks on the more foolish ones. Kitaro in ''Hakaba'' however [[spoiler: drives a couple to hang themselves, presumably out of madness.]] A detail in the manga that's somewhat glossed over in the animation however, [[spoiler: is that these two were serial killers.]] Kitaro doesn't seem to go after the innocent at all, and even [[spoiler: spares a manga artsits' life in aforementioned hanging episode, as he wasn't guilty of anything.]] He can however, play cruel jokes with an equally cruel twist of fate on the foolishly greedy or arrogant. He does show occasional concern or altruism for certain characters as well, although this dissipates as the series progresses or in other cases is backed by an ulterior motive.

* WhoWantsToLiveForever: YourMileageMayVary on whether this bothers Kitaro or not in this series...as Kitaro's outlook on humanity is quite a bit more detached than that of his more benevolent counterpart. However, this does restrict Kitaro from even having a chance at developing any sort of friendship with any human if he wanted to; and unlike his Gegege counterpart, Kitaro doesn't have a closely knit pack of Youkai friends to hang out with aside from his father and perhaps Nezumi Otoko. By the end of the series, Kitaro seems to live a pretty lonely existence.
