* {{Homage}}: both plots and individual scenes are borrowed from a variety of contemporary films and anime, from a dream in episode 2 that reflects ''AnOfficerAndAGentleman'' to the New Year's Day special where the entire cast is recast in a parody episode of {{Toku}}, fighting a [[MegaNeko giant-sized Jingoro]], entitled [[Film/TopGun "T.A.P. Gun"]]. (This was, after all, an [[TheEighties '80s]] show).

* BaitAndSwitchCredits: The Italian opening. The lyrics of the theme song were clearly written by someone who don't know anything about the story. The song is mostly about Kyosuke (called by his dub name "Johnny") and his powers, not a single word about the love triangle which is the main plot of the anime. It uses some random adjectives to describe Kyosuke, like "sincere" (when for most of the series he's anything but) or even "affascinante" (meaning "charming, seductive"). It also states that mind-reading is one of his powers, which is of course not true.

* ChristmasEveryDay: Kyosuke uses his PsychicPowers to repeat Christmas three times, trying to get to the party with the "right" girl (without pissing off Madoka or crushing Hikaru's happiness). No-one else is aware of the repeats.
