* 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'', as influences for American films like ''Franchise/TheMatrix'' and ''{{Film/Chronicle}}''.

* HilariousInHindsight: The story is in a backdrop of the 2020 Neo-Tokyo Olympics, and Akira was apparently below the unfinished Olympic stadium. OnSeptember 9, 2013, Tokyo was selected as the host of the 2020 Summer Olympics.

* HellIsThatNoise: The soundtrack [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dcpFdngLi7Y Doll's Polyphony]] that's heard whenever Tetsuo hallucinates. Sounds like children humming in a sinister manner.

* AdaptationDisplacement: The movie is undoubtedly more well known than the original manga. In part because the manga 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.

* NarmCharm: While the original 1988 dub isn't considered that good anymore, it's still rather charming and fun [[SoBadItsGood in it's own right.]]

** The re-dub also changes the pronunciation of Kaneda. Accurate or not, it's funny hearing people scream "[[CanadaEh CANADA!]]"

* GatewaySeries: In the late '80s and the '90s, the film was the introduction to adult anime for a lot of Westerners.
