* {{Reincarnation}}: [[spoiler:Sanzo, Gojyo and Hakkai are the reincarnations of three gods who apparently died trying to save Goku from being persecuted or turned into a second Nataku]].
* RetGone: [[spoiler: Ukoku's Muten Sutra.]]

** Also that one episode where once again Yaone failed her mission and gets kidnapped by another demon, and when Hakkai heard that, he requests the team to save her, leading to an EnemyMine situation with Kougaiji & co.

** Also that ''Gensomaden'' has one filler episode where once again involving Yaone failed her mission investigating a group of humans that hunted down demons [[spoiler:secretly led by a demon who just wants to consume other demons]], got captured after taking down several humans and gets kidnapped by another demon, and when Hakkai heard that, he requests the team to save her, leading tied to an EnemyMine situation X-shaped cross, and would have been [[spoiler:consumed or worse]], if it wasn't for Kougaiji's team [[EnemyMine and Sanzo's as well, at the request of Hakkai]], coming to her rescue. And the anime treated [[BoundAndGagged Yaone being tied up]] in 'dead serious drama' style, with Kougaiji & co.dark lightings and only a few glimpses of her body, not in full.

* {{Filler}}: Tons. The filler in the first anime series, ''Gensoumaden Saiyuki'', is generally considered superior to the filler in ''Saiyuki RELOAD'' and ''Saiyuki RELOAD Gunlock.'' All three series liked to rehash the old familiar sob stories, but the Gensoumaden writers applied them to new situations and even animated chapters of ''Gaiden'', while RELOAD/Gunlock tended towards endless flashbacks or {{Pokemon}}-esque character-of-the-day side stories.

* {{Shotacon}}: A lot of fans seem to be uncomfortable with the idea of Goku in any kind of romantic or sexual relationship, given his childish nature and appearance, despite the fact that he's physically 18 ''and'' ReallySevenHundredYearsOld. This is especially bad for those who have only seen the anime--while it showed the very beginning of his CharacterDevelopment in the Kami-sama arc, it quickly OvertookTheManga and tended to treat Goku like a standard [[IdiotHero stupid]] {{Shonen}} protagonist.
** Faceless bystanders tend to spread rumors of this nature about the relationships between Koumyou and Kouyruu and Konzen and Goku.

''Saiyuki'' is a somewhat large franchise, with three TV series, three [=OVAs=], stage plays, drama [=CDs=], and a movie, along with the six manga everything is based on. [[note]]Just for reference, the titles for the various series that are used throughout this article: Manga: original ''Gensomaden Saiyuki'', sequels ''Saiyuki Reload'' and ''Saiyuki Reload Blast'', prequels ''Saiyuki Gaiden'' and ''Saiyuki Ibun'', and ''Saiyuki Gaiden: Ants of Heaven''. Anime: original series ''Gensomaden Saiyuki'', sequels ''Saiyuki Reload'' and ''Saiyuki Reload Gunlock'', [=OVAs=] ''Gensomaden Saiyuki: Kibou no Zaika'', ''Saiyuki Gaiden'', and ''Saiyuki Burial'', theatrical movie ''Saiyuki Requiem''.[[/note]] One could argue that this series has MultipleDemographicAppeal, with an overwhelmingly {{Bishonen}} cast and multiple opportunities for HoYay within the structure of a [[SerialEscalation serially escalating]] {{Shonen}} action series.

* {{Fanservice}}: For everybody! Lirin, Yaone and several incidental girls are incredibly busty, and the four protagonists are kind enough to remove their shirts on occasion. Especially on [[FetishFuelStationAttendant Hakkai and Goku]].

* TheThreeFacesOfEve: [[GenderInvertedTrope In an unusual male example]], Son Goku is the Child, being youthful looking, cheerful and more than a bit clueless, Cho Hakkai fits the Wife archetype by being intelligent, sensible and even tempered, then we have Sha Gojyo, who happens to be flirty and physical, particularly where women are concerned, making him the Seductress. These examples are basically in terms of personality rather than gender.
