** Jack's own time period; the equivalent of Feudal/Edo Japan seems to co-exist with cultures based on the Vikings, Classical Greece, Medieval England, and even Ancient Egypt, for a range that spans thousands of years in the real world.

So begins the introductory sequence to ''Samurai Jack'', an animated series created by GenndyTartakovsky (''WesternAnimation/DextersLaboratory'').

The occasional piece of SchizoTech also appears.

** In "Jack and the Gangsters", the gangsters give Jack a job to deliver a package with a bomb in it, but Jack seeing the sorry state of the victim, helps him escape, which is imposed over him telling gangsters that he did everything as planned. And later in the episode, ''they'' tell ''him'' that they're eager to reform and ask for the Jewel of Neptune so they can 'restore it to its proper place'. Jack, [[RuleOfFunny unexpectedly,]] finds this quite plausible.

* MechaMooks: To get past censoring, most enemies Jack encounters are machines. Some baddies he fights don't even look like robots until he slashes them open.

* WretchedHive: In "The Samurai Called Jack," Jack finds himself in one that's a futuristic cross between this and CoolestClubEver. Many episodes later, the Scotsman brings his amnesiac buddy to the seaport of Heck's Bucket and uses those exact words (yet another ShoutOut).

Added DiffLines:
* DarkerAndEdgier: As the revived series will premiere on Creator/AdultSwim instead of the normal Creator/CartoonNetwork, it will quite likely exploit the block's laxer censorship to some extent, in order to appeal to the old show's audience, who are now adults.

* AmbiguouslyHuman: Due to the setting, Jack will meet characters who appear human, but have odd features that would make one question what they are. Such as the three men he first meets in the future, due to their physique and [[AmazingTechnicolorPopulation purple, blue and pale skin]].
