** Speaking of Manta...yeah, don't hurt him or any of Yoh's other friends. Yoh will ''flip his shit.''

* {{Bowdlerise}}: In the American release of the manga, Ponchi's... gigantic weaponized testicles are censored. In one scene, where he basically immobilizes Manta by [[NauseaFuel wrapping him up with them]], it's edited to look like some sort of thick hairy Seran wrap coating, and references are made to Ponchi's ''tail'' instead. A much huger variant of the same attack is used later on in the story; there, it's referred to as a [[UnusualEuphemism "Ghost Bubble"]]. However, the editing in both senes is slight enough that anyone paying attention will figure out what's ''really'' going on.

* BreakHisHeartToSaveHim: Non-romantic example - Yoh attempts this on Manta after his first fight against Faust [[spoiler: led to poor Manta being vivisected alive and Yoh losing the first round of the Shaman Fight]]. It doesn't work.

* DidWeJustHaveTeawithCthulhu?: It gets more hilarious and awkward when Yoh has a bath and even sleeps with Cthulu. No, Cthulu is not Anna but [[spoiler:Hao]]

Added DiffLines:

** The Buddhist faction gets mentioned near the start of the tournament proper as one of the 3 major factions, the other two being Hao's faction and the X-Laws. They don't actually do anything on screen until nearly 2/3rds through the story.

* CerebusSyndrome: Initially a SliceOfLife ghost story, the show changed with the arrival of Tao Ren to become a [[MonsterOfTheWeek Shaman of the Week]] story, then changed again into a TournamentArc which started the tone shifts towards DarkerAndEdgier with the possibility that AnyoneCanDie, with both antagonists and protagonists being given more backstory and exploration.

The story also begins dealing with darker themes like the pointlessness of a CycleOfRevenge and whether humanity deserves to survive.

Added DiffLines:

* LostInTranslation: Chocolove's comedy is primarily puns. But nearly none of the puns translate to English at all, so most of his jokes are completely nonsensical. Which interestingly increases what a bad comedian he is.

** Really, many characters appear in the background of the early group shots of all the shamans together, even if they aren't properly introduced until later.

* EarlyBirdCameo: Chocolove and (a much more excited and upbeat looking) Hao appear on the chapter art for ch. 27. Hao doesn't properly first appear til chapter 61 and Chocolove doesn't appear until chapter 106, about a third of the way into the story.

** [[spoiler: Averted in the anime, when Yoh defeats Hao outright. However, unless the backstory of the manga doesn't apply to the anime, all this does is kick the can 500 years down the line when Hao reincarnates for the next tournament.]]
