* ImpostorExposingTest: The military figures out a way to use an x-ray machine to separate a group of mixed humans and Parasites. Before that a simpler method was devised in plucking hairs since, for a parasite, the ambulatory but non-sentient cells would writhe before dying.

* WhatTheHellHero: When Shinichi detects a puppy that got hit by a car, Migi determines that it would be dead within ten minutes. Sure enough, the puppy dies, but Shinichi doesn't show any emotional attachment or respect to it, and just throws it into the trash bin. Satomi calls him out on it, and the wake up call makes him realize how much he's changed. He gives the puppy a proper burial afterward.



* PragmaticAdaptation: The anime is taking some liberties with the story since the original manga took place in the late 1980s and early 1990s, but the overall premise, story, and tone remain unchanged so far.
