* SingleTargetSexuality: The only women Inuyasha shows any interest in are Kikyo and Kagome. Since they are technically the same person, that makes it even more so.



* SinsOfOurFathers: Miroku inherited the Wind Tunnel because his grandfather wanted to destroy Naraku.

* SinsOfOurFathers: Miroku inherited the Wind Tunnel because his grandfather wanted to destroy Naraku. Also a lot of enemies Inuyasha and Sesshomaru encounter were enemies of their father.

You can find dubbed and subtitled versions of both ''[[http://www.hulu.com/inuyasha InuYasha]]'' and ''[[http://www.hulu.com/inuyasha-the-final-act The Final Act]]'' on Creator/{{Hulu}} and the first two seasons of the original series on Netflix. The show (in dubbed form) aired for years on Creator/AdultSwim (and, later, the revived Creator/{{Toonami}} block), but the network lost the rights to it in early 2014. Toonami aired ''The Final Act'' starting on November 15, 2014. Both animes currently stream on the Creator/NeonAlley service.

** The story is about the Shikon no Tama trying to renew its cycle, having the souls of a powerful miko and a composite of several youkai and a human, [[spoiler: and needing similar souls, like Kikyo/Kagome and Naraku]]. All of this information is either left out or outright changed in the anime during the Jewel explanation.

** 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 no Tama'' 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.

** Kagome confronting Naraku near the end and making the unusually astute guess that [[spoiler: the Shikon no Tama did not grant Naraku's wish]] is really one of the best moments of the series. Naraku states more explicitly [[spoiler: at the moment of his death, that his wish was to have Kikyo's heart, and the possibility of being with her in the afterlife, which the Shikon no Tama could not give him. Failing this, he instead planned to replace Midoriko and the youkai with himself and Kagome, by wishing to become part of the Shikon no Tama and by using the stolen Meidou to trap Kagome with the Shikon no Tama. (This of course was really the wish of the Shikon no Tama itself.)

** Also, one of the last powers to be introduced before the FinalBattle, [[spoiler: [[ChainReactionDestruction Bakusaiga]]]]. As soon as it's introduced, characters begin observing that Naraku doesn't stand a chance against it. As a result, the plot almost immediately ensures that it can't be used even for most of the final battle. At the end, when it's finally unleashed, it's unstoppable.

Of course this being [[MagnificentBastard Naraku]], he's not really going to die since he's only an illusion, but Rin is real and if Sango strikes the girl ''will'' die, filling the Shikon no Tama with darkness.

* TimeyWimeyBall: Not a big problem, since the "fighting bad guys" matter more than the time traveling, but for example, Kagome finds a jewel shard in the present. So that means it's also back in the Sengoku period, meaning the Shikon no Tama eventually comes up to complete plus one extra shard stuck in a tree somewhere. Souls also seem to transcend time in that Kikyo can't be reborn with her soul because it's already been reincarnated in someone else -- someone else from the far future who hasn't been born yet, even if she happens to [[TimeTravelTenseTrouble have will have]] travelled back in time.

Inuyasha was effectively engaged to Kikyo when she died and his relationship with Kagome was already well under way when Kikyo came back from the dead (shortly after Kouga's entry into the storyline, Kagome and Inuyasha are a confirmed couple), making him honour-bound to both women and completely unable to choose between them. At one point he even admits to Miroku that he was hoping he could solve the problem by having them both (which would have been relatively common for a man in Japan's past, but modern-girl Kagome was definitely not thrilled by that suggestion). It doesn't help that Kagome is Kikyo reincarnated.

Kagura may be a notable exception, given that she fails to do anything more serious than kidnapping Rin, and becomes quite protective of Kohaku. Thanks to a multiple personality disorder, Suikotsu flipped between being a gentle doctor who wouldn't hurt a fly to a homicidal maniac that was willing to include children in his body count.

* HeroOfAnotherStory:Inuyasha and Sessomaru's late father is spoken of with great reverence, and for good reason. Not only does the "Dog General" dwarf his sons in his true form, in his time he fought and defeated numerous epic foes, and he also had an equally epic and tragic romance with a beautiful human princess--Inuyasha's mother.
