* AndTheAdventureContinues: [[spoiler:The BigBad may be gone, and the Princess may be staying home this time, but Syaoran, Mokona, Kurogane, and Fai are still [[WalkingTheEarth walking the multiverse]] looking for the feathers. This time, however, is to restore ''two'' people rather than one. Also, they're looking for bodies for those two people along the way, but that's secondary to the feathers]].

** So, whatever happened to [[spoiler:Sakura's memories of Syaoran]] anyway? By the second half of the series, the issue seems moot. However, in the epilogue, [[spoiler:Mokona gives the gang Larg's (the black Mokona's) earring. Because it contains C!Sakura's memories of C!Syaoran, along with Watanuki's memories of his parents, they will be taken back to both Clow Country and to the shop much more often than any other worlds. It's implied that they will also revisit most or all of the worlds they have been through before]].
** And there is Mokona's red earring. At first it seemed like a cute accessory. [[spoiler:Then Yuuko mentions (in ''Manga/XxxHolic'') that it can increase magical power. This wasn't used until Fai needed a power boost in order for him and Kurogane to escape the collapsing world. When they finally did, it was mentioned by Fei Wong Reed that Yuuko probably created it [[FridgeBrilliance just so that Fai and Kurogane could escape]]]].

** Also, the [[OurVampiresAreDifferent vampire]] [[{{Bishonen}} twins]] [[spoiler:Kamui and Subaru]]. Being vampires fills in for the creepy-ness.

* DarkerAndEdgier: [[spoiler:''Tokyo Revelations'' went into high-octane NightmareFuel following the conclusion of the second season series and abandoning of the third season, as it jumped straight from playing its tropes straight to the dark version that the manga had slowly eased into.

* GainaxEnding: The anime ending, mainly because they had a whole second season to explain who the antagonists were, and delve into the manga story, but instead frittered it away with two flashbacks of Kurogane (which was okay) and several dark twists of the characters and settings from the first story. So then the last 8 or so episodes felt extremely rushed, resolved little to nothing ([[spoiler: and after all that, Syaoran gets ''one feather'' for Sakura when the bird has millions and she ''doesn't even get to see Syaoran in her memory'', [[AndTheAdventureContinues simply so they can keep traveling]]]] ), and then Syaoran finished off the bird with a move [[AssPull more reminiscent of]] ShamanKing [[AssPull than the main story]], and did nothing to even mention Fai's story beyond the brief mention of Chii.

Added DiffLines:

* ActionHoggingOpening: The anime's opening can easily lead viewers to believe the series is much more action oriented than it actually is, as it is basically composed of one battle sequence after another. It includes Kurogane fighting several missile-launching spiders, Fai kicking around some Fei Wang Reed assassins, Syaoran squaring up with a bizarre rock monster, and even ''Mokona'' of all people punching a mook. Nothing of it happens in the series, and the fighting scenes of the anime are few and often circumstantially limited.

Added DiffLines:

* BeamMeUpScotty: Mokona's line when opening a portal to other dimension, "Mokona Modoki Modoki Doki," is pretty much one of the most iconic quotes in the series, to the extent many dubs and merchandising articles turn it into her full-fledged CatchPhrase. However, many people are surprised to know that the line actually belongs only to the anime adaptation; in the manga, the line is never uttered at all.

* AgonyOfTheFeet: The children mesmerized by Rondart are abducted from his homes in their sleep wear, so they are forced to walk barefoot through the snow. Later Rondart exploites it when he kidnaps Sakura.



* CanonDisContinuity: In the anime. ''Tokyo Revelations'' picks up immediately after the escape from the Rekort library, ignoring the filler arcs from the broadcast series.

Added DiffLines:

* GettingCrapPastTheRadar: The Spanish dub pulls one so amazingly unsubtle that one wonders if they were conscient of the radar itself. When Fai pokes Kurogane in the cheek in their walk through Outo, the original sees him doing an unrelated, non-sexual joke, but the Spanish version has him saying a lingo version of "I just penetrated you". As if shippers needed more...

This is a completed manga series, ending with 233 chapters organized into 28 volumes. There was an anime adaptation by Creator/BeeTrain that ran for 52 episodes on Creator/{{NHK}}, as well as a movie, ''Princess of the Birdcage Kingdom'', and two sets of [=OADs=], ''Tsubasa: Tokyo Revelations'' (which follows the DarkerAndEdgier and BloodierAndGorier storyline of the manga) and ''Tsubasa: Shunraiki'' (again, another supporter of said storyline). A sequel began serialization in August 2014, named ''Tsubasa World Chronicle'', and WordOfGod has stated it'll be connected to ''Manga/XxxHolic Rei''.

* ArtisticLicenseMartialArts: Late in the story it's revealed that Syaoran fights mainly with kicks due to having a poor vision on one of his eyes, which he resolves by measuring out the distance to his opponent with his legs. In realistic fighting, this would be almost the opposite case - a fighter would risk his balance and defense if he threw commited, long-range attacks without a good accuracy, so the most adequate style for a person with poor vision would be actually a short-ranged, preferably grappling-based one. In other words, this is the reason why in real life judo is a popular sport for blind athletes and taekwondo isn't.
