** Going with the above, any scenes of [[BodyHorror horrific]], [[SuperpowerMeltdown uncontrolled]] mutation (especially if there's [[ShapeshifterBaggage a lot of biomass generated]]) in any other media are usually referred to as "going Tetsuo".

* GenreTurningPoint: In the West, the film kicked off interest in anime for adults.

* GenreTurningPoint: In the West, the film kicked off interest in anime for adults. Ironically, its financial failure in its home country of Japan meant that it was not only almost a GenreKiller, but alongside ''Anime/RoyalSpaceForceTheWingsOfHonneamise'' -- which saw a similar notorious failure to live up to box office expectations -- it even threatened to put the entire future of anime production in serious jeopardy.

* GatewaySeries: Towards anime. Steven Spielberg had claimed the movie to be Unmarketable in the U.S. due to the AnimationAgeGhetto.

* GermansLoveDavidHasselhoff: For some reason, the film was overlooked in Japan while it received positive reviews in the Americas and Europe, basically introducing anime in those regions. The film version was also cited, along with ''Anime/GhostInTheShell'' and ''Anime/SerialExperimentsLain'', as influences for American films like ''Franchise/TheMatrix'' and ''{{Film/Chronicle}}''.

* TheyChangedItNowItSucks: Many fans of the manga have this complaint because because the film tries to cram the first third 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 rest 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.
