** BookEnds: In a way. The first multiple-part Tomie storyline shows Tomie having another face growing out of her head when she gets upset enough, this being a major reveal to Tsukiko about her true nature. So does the last storyline; [[spoiler:after trying to protect the Ayaka Tomie for so long so that she doesn't regenerate, Yasuko and Ryo make her angry and a face starts to grow out of her head. Ryo puts her in cement to keep the new Tomie from forming.]]

* '''''Tomie: Replay''''' (2000) -- Tomie: Replay contains elements of the manga chapter Basement. The film begins with a six-year-old girl being rushed into a hospital ER with an unusually distended stomach. Doctors begin to operate and find a disembodied head, Tomie's head, alive and growing inside the girl's belly. The head is placed in a tank of alkaline solution in the basement of the hospital for further observation. Soon after, all five of the hospital workers present during the operation mysteriously leave the hospital or disappear entirely.

* '''''Tomie: Beginning ''''' (2005) -- This straight-to-video movie is a prequel to the rest of the series, shot on HD, and based on the first Tomie manga by Junji Ito. It deals with the chain of events that occurred right before the first film takes place. Tomie (Rio Matsumoto) shows up as a transfer student at a high school, quickly enchanting all the males, and raising the ire of the females. As is often the case in the Tomie films, she fixates on one solitary girl whom she befriends, with overt lesbian overtones. She displays all of her typical powers, and it isn't long before the murders and madness begin. In this movie we are introduced to the teacher who promises to kill her no matter how many times he has to do the "favor" as well as the eye-patch-wearing boy of the first movie in the series.
* '''''Tomie: Revenge''''' (2005) -- [[InCaseYouForgotWhoWroteIt As you can tell]], Another home-video release shot on HD, this one partly based on the Tomie manga "Revenge" by Junji Ito. This time round, Tomie is played by Anri Ban. The story revolves around a young, female doctor (Hisako Shirata), and an unidentified naked woman she runs down on the road one night. In her search for the wounded girl (who has a mole under her left eye) the doctor ends up in an abandoned house filled with bodies, madmen and an unconscious girl. Surely Tomie is not too far away...
* '''''Tomie vs Tomie''''' (2007) -- Partially based on the manga "The Gathering." A young man with a past begins work in a factory, where he attracts the amorous attention of a mysterious woman who lurks behind the scenes. He is a relatively unique young man, perhaps a genetic one-off, in that he feels no particular attraction to Tomie. This of course intrigues Tomie, and she begins to become obsessed with him. Soon, he is caught in a vicious struggle between two rival Tomies. And neither Tomie will die.

* ArtEvolution: The Tomie series starts out looking a bit rough around the edges, but smooths out into Creator/JunjiIto's familiar style as it progresses. Also, Tomie's hair goes from slightly wavy to completely straight.

* BerserkButton: Tomie doesn't handle being criticized well, and will tend to act hysterically, which causes her involuntarily to start to spawn a new Tomie from her head. Another thing that angers Tomie is ignoring her.
* BiTheWay: [[AdaptationalSexuality Only in the movies]]. The original version from the manga is rather contemptuous of other females, but Movie!Tomie has a few SchoolgirlLesbian romances under her belt as well. Interestingly, she's a lot more gentle with her female lovers and less outwardly bitchy and demanding, at least at first, than with the boys.

* {{Greed}}: Despite being a HumanoidAbomination, Tomie is a materialist who desires valuables. These include: [[KillAndReplace killing and replacing]] a rich man's daughter, arranging for the death of a rich couple that adopted her, and marrying an older man for his money, then driving him [[DrivenToSuicide to suicide]].
* TheGrotesque: The main character of Little Finger, Hiroya, is a [[{{Gonk}} very ugly man]] with a good heart who is abused by his evil brothers. While Hiroya resists Tomie's advances, he shows sympathy to a deformed offspring of Tomie, helping her out. The Tomie, however subverts this, revealing at the end she's part of the HiveMind and gloats over tricking Hiroya, leaving him to die.
* HealingFactor: An extreme example reaching to FromASingleCell levels. It's virtually impossible to kill her permanently, because any part of her body can turn into an entire new version of her. Burning may work, but even it's hit or miss because of how extreme her regenerative capabilities are. Even when she doesn't regenerate, Tomie demonstrates an ability to heal quickly from various traumas, including being poisoned, cut, or even subjected to extreme cold.
* HiveMind: While they do not act in unison under one intelligence, all of the Tomies share the same personality and memories, which is best shown in Little Finger. Despite this, the Tomies are known to fight among themselves either ForTheEvulz or not willing to share even with a HiveMind.
* HoistByHisOwnPetard: Subverted with Tomie. Prolonged exposure causes the victims to go crazy, and Tomie's repeated taunting is the berserk button that leads to her ending up a gory mess, yet her constant regenerative abilities means that such circumstances are only a minor setback at worst, and often an advantage, as she can duplicate and spread from wounds. It is likely that this is their endgoal and their method of to production.
