* DoubleMeaningTitle: ''Parasyte'' is titled 寄生獣 (''Kiseijū'') in the original Japanese, literally meaning "Parasitic Beasts". On the face of it, this refers to the PuppeteerParasite alien species which appears among humanity and begins to prey on humans. At the same time, however, it refers to the theme of humans being a threat to themselves and the earth through overpopulation and environmental destruction. Toward the end, the leader of the parasite conspiracy Takeshi Hirokawa accuses humanity of being the real parasites destroying the Earth, making a TitleDrop by calling humans "parasitic beasts".

* BladeOnAStick[=/=]CombatTentacles: Parasites fight by twisting into long whiplike stalks with razor-sharp blades on the end.



** Migi has no qualms about [[spoiler:pickpocketing in order to remain undetected]].

to:

** Migi has Parasites eat humans because that's how they survive as a species, and they feel no qualms more guilt about [[spoiler:pickpocketing killing the sapient lifeforms who serve as their prey than humans do about eating livestock such as pigs and cows. They are mostly incapable of emotion, so whenever they explain the reasons behind their actions it's very cold-blooded and matter-of-fact. Furthermore, each individual of their species will do anything to ensure its own survival, and they do not understand the human concept of altruism. Migi is frequently baffled by what he sees as irrational behavior and thoughts from his host Shinichi, and considers Shinichi's objection to plans he suggests--like using his classmates as human shields in order to remain undetected]].defeat a hostile parasite, or even just pickpocketing money to purchase a cab ride to safety--to be a misguided case of HonorBeforeReason.

At the crucial moment Migi reveals himself and performs a BareHandedBladeBlock.
