* TheyChangedItNowItSucks: Many fans of the manga have this complaint because because the film tries to cram the first half of the manga into a single movie (many for first two acts it has plotlines following three to four characters at a time) and doesn't use the second half due to a divergence in plot.

* AdaptationDisplacement: The movie is undoubtedly more well known than the original manga, in part because the source material had a really screwed up release. Marvel Comics bought the rights to translate it/bring it over to America when the movie was released in the US in 1989 and but Katsuhiro Otomo's decision to redraw the last 1/6th of the manga led to the US version seeing a massive delay in the publication of the last eight issues and by the time the last issue came out in 1995, the series was out of print as well as the trade paperbacks, of which only 10 of the proposed 13 volumes ever saw the light of day. It was not until Dark Horse Comics got the rights to the series in 2000 that the manga received wide release, in terms of availability.

* InformedAttractiveness: Kei. Kaneda comments how attractive she is just by seeing her picture and is so influenced by her looks he manages to weasel her out of the police station, but for the most part [[OnlySixFaces she doesn't really look that different from any other female]].

* HoYay: Kai. Of the bikers it is rather conspicuous that Kai never has any female hangers-on, and seems rather attached to Yamagata. He's effeminate and neatly dressed, by far the shortest member of the gang, and actually cries over Yamagata's death. WordOfGod is that Kai is gay and has a bit of a crush on Yamagata, who is straight.

* HoYay: Kai comes off as a bit too close to Yamagata in the anime, and it's much more frequent in the manga. WordOfGod is that Kai is gay and has a bit of a crush on Yamagata, who is straight.

* TheWoobie: Kaori, She's one of the few characters who actually loves and cares for Tetsuo and for simply liking the guy, she was molested by a biker gang that was rivals with Tetsuo's, is constantly shown to be in a state of sadness due to all the crap that happened to Tetsuo, and is rather cruelly killed off at the end. Tetsuo himself would be here on this list too if not for his more villainous actions.
