* VocalEvolution: Creator/PhilLaMarr's vaguely-Japanese accent for Jack starts off sounding like... well, an [[FakeNationality African-American man trying to do a Japanese accent]] before solidifying into something more distinct by the second season. Of course, the character never spoke much to begin with.

** When Jack first meets the Scotsman in "Jack and the Scotsman", Jack offers to climb under the bridge to get past him. In English the Scotsman replies with ''"So you can look up under me kilt!?"''. The Swedish version is a bit racier in that he replies with ''"Så du kan kicka up under min kuk!?"'', Kuk being a crude slang for the male genitalia. How that got past is anyone's guess.

** The word "damn" apparently slips by the censors in "Robo-Samurai vs. Mondo-Bot", according to the DVD captions. It's muttered in a robotic voice and hard to catch, which is probably why.

* AmbiguousEnding: The ending of the comic book, much to many fans' dismay. We only know one thing for certain; [[spoiler:Jack never found a way back home, and is now concentrating on the future and defeating Aku.]]

* AmbiguousRobots: Any time Jack slices someone/something up, it's usually mechanical. WordOfGod is that it was intentional so he could get a lot of gore in a children's cartoon just like in old samurai movies that inspired it without falling foul of censors. Where things aren't mechanical but bad, it's likely to be something MadeOfEvil like Aku himself or his demon minions. Though many of his enemies are just clear-cut robots, others don't show any signs of being mechanical until we see the stumps of their dismembered limbs crackling and spewing oil.

* ForegoneConclusion: At least until the series finally reaches its intended conclusion, it's inevitable that every episode where Jack has a chance to return to the past will either end with the method of time travel having a catch that makes Jack decide against using it, Jack sacrificing his chance to go home to save someone in need, unexpected circumstances preventing the way back to his proper time from being used, or the whole thing turning out to be a sham.



* OriginsEpisode: "Birth of Evil"

to:

* OriginsEpisode: "Birth of Evil"Evil" explains the origins of Aku, gives a more detailed account of Jack's father battling Aku, and also shows Jack's birth.


Added DiffLines:

* RoboticReveal: A common occurrence on the show is for a seemingly organic opponent of Jack's turning out to be a robotic being after Jack slices at them with his sword. One particular example is in the second story of the episode "Jack Tales", where the family trying to take Jack's sword are revealed to be metal-eating robots.

Added DiffLines:

** Characters are more prone to swearing in the comic continuation by Creator/IDWPublishing. The thief from "Jack and the Labyrinth" even says "crap" a few times in the 17th issue.
* GondorCallsForAid: The comic by Creator/IDWPublishing ends with an older Jack leading an attack on Aku's fortress. Among those joining in the fight are many of the allies he's made and the people he's helped out throughout the run of the show, including Extor from "Jack and the Ultra-robots", the Woolies from "Jack, the Woolies, and the Chritchellites", the thief from "Jack and the Labyrinth", and the baby from "Jack and the Baby" as a grownup.
