* {{Expy}}: Mostly of ''Manga/RanmaOneHalf''. Creator/RumikoTakahashi herself admitted that the [[PortmanteauCoupleName InuKag]] romance was supposed to be the [[OfficialCouple Ranma/Akane]] romance as it should have been written. Sango resembles Ukyo Kuonji in terms of design and Miroku looks a lot like Shinnosuke (and like the young [[DirtyOldMan Luckyosai]], Happosai's "old friend"). Also, Myoga resembles manga-Happosai in looks though not personality. And if you look at it the right way, Koga/Ryoga Hibiki. Bonus points for the fact that Ranma and Inuyasha share voice actors in both Japanese and English (Kappei Yamaguchi and Richard Ian Cox, though only for the latter half of Ranma in Dick's case), and Kelly Sheridan is the English voice for both Ukyo and Sango. Further, David Kaye voices both Soun and Sesshomaru, and Paul Dobson voiced both Happosai and Myoga.

Kagome happens to be the {{reincarnation}} of the {{kiko}} that Inuyasha once loved fifty years in his past, who just happened to be the one who fired a sacred arrow which sealed him to a sacred tree and essentially killed him. Kagome's arrival in the past is pivotal in that she is the one who releases Inuyasha from this "death" by pulling the arrow from his chest; her connection with his past love allows her to perform this otherwise impossible feat.

** Inuyasha's youkai form. Insanely high levels of strength and speed, a much improved healing factor, enough youki to make even ''Sesshomaru'' [[NotSoStoic feel one, brief moment of fear]] and have a youketsu capable of holding the evil spirit of the ''Shikon Jewel'' immobile against its will and decay a frggin' portal to hell when its sliced by the Dragon-Scale Tessaiga. Of course, there's the little matter of him being a bloodthirsty monster that has barely any of Inuyasha's restraint, and each time it gets even less controllable and less intelligent. Of course, he does get to occasionally take advantage of it and Tessaiga at the same time, whenever someone starts stealing some of Tessaiga's forms, or he boosts Tessaiga with purified Shikon shards.
