* WorldOfCardboardSpeech: [[spoiler: At one point in the anime, Lunge hold Tenma at gunpoint and told him how he (mistakenly) arrive at the conclusion that he is the killer, one of the points of his reasoning being that, since Tenma is a surgeon, Lunge expect him to be gifted with the exact type of cold efficiency he reads in the killer M.O.. Tenma immediatly deny that, underlining that bearing the reponsability of life and death over his patients makes him anything but cold]].

Later on, [[spoiler: ''Johan'']] of all people is implied to have done this after [[spoiler: finding out that he wasn't the one who was really sent to the Red Rose Mansion]].

* EnfantTerrible: While there are various [[FreudianExcuse Freudian Excuses]] given as to why Johan is so incredibly vile and wretched, the most plausible theory out of all of them is that Johan was simply ''born'' evil.



* FanDisservice: There are several instances, like when a kid searching for his mom ends up in a red light district, sees a prostitute bent over a trash can ''servicing'' a patron, and is paid to watch. Also, Roberto. Another being Nina in first half of the Prague arc being revealed to actually be [[spoiler:Johan in drag.]]

* BeCarefulWhatYouWishFor

to:

* BeCarefulWhatYouWishForBeCarefulWhatYouWishFor: In oh, so many ways. Let's count 'em:
** Be careful wishing your boss and his cronies would drop dead out loud -- it'll cost you if a certain young boy is in the room when you do it.
** Wishing to find out what happened to your twin sibling when you were separated can go very badly wrong for both of you with massive psychological damage. Whichever sibling you are, when.
** Wanting to start World War III by finding a charismatic leader with skills? Be careful with that thought...
** Wishing to have a saviour to jump in and smash the bad guys who are hurting you and your friends can turn you into something amazing and awesome... but, also downright scary when you have no clue how you did what you did.

* ObsessiveCompulsiveBarkeeping: A bartender Tenma talks to does this.



* ShoutOut: The central chase of Tenma owes quite a bit to ''Series/TheFugitive'' TV series (as did the TV "Hulk" for that matter). Also, Mr. Rosso mentions that one of his favorite films is ''Summertime'' from 1955. The professor in Nina's introductory scene is a shout out to John Houseman's character in ''Film/TheGreatPaperChase.'' The backstory of the [[spoiler:escape artist who helps Tenma]] features a shoutout to ''TheShawshankRedemption''. Johan's character also had similarity with [[ComicBook/RedSkull another Johann who was involved with Nazi.]]

* {{Expy}}: A few characters are based on members of Creator/{{Osamu Tezuka}}'s "Star System". The most obvious is Dr. Reichwein, who is a clear homage to beloved Tezuka character Shansaku Ban, right down to his trademark moustache. Johan also has too many similarities to Yuki Michio from Tezuka's suspense-thriller ''{{MW}}'' to be coincidence. Dr. Tenma shares his name with ''Manga/AstroBoy'''s creator, although he's actually closer to Manga/BlackJack. Urasawa would later go on to create ''{{Pluto}}'', a [[TheRemake remake]] of a story arc from the ''Astro Boy'' series.
