* OlderThanTheyThink: Western viewers were certain that the Youtuber causing trouble by breaking talismans in the 2018 premiere was supposed to be a callout on the Logan Paul incident, and even nicknamed him as such. In reality, it was a common plot in the series to show reckless humans messing with things they thought were harmless and paying the price; this version just added in a social media component to keep up with the times. Given the AnimationLeadTime (the Logan Paul video had been posted 4 months prior to the premiere), it's unlikely it was a direct reference, but the ValuesResonance definitely makes it stick out.

* EnsembleDarkhorse: Neko Musume is without a doubt the most well-known outside of Japan. Many people know her without knowing the series.

* HeartwarmingInHindsight: When asked by people why he helps out humans so much, Kitaro responds that it's because a man named Mizuki was kind to him and his people when they needed it. You could probably say the same of youkai tales in general, due to "some guy named (Shigeru) Mizuki" contributing to youkai tales being popular with the public again instead of letting those tales die out.

* {{Anvilicious}}: The 2018 series hits you on the head with a big one right out the gate: don't play in traffic, and ''never'' put SocialMediaBeforeReason.

** Even better: ''Kitaro's Night Tales'' featured a beautiful cat girl named [[MeaningfulName Neko]] for several chapters. Aside from her reactions to rats or ratlike things, she otherwise looked like a regular human girl.

* HilariousInHindsight:
** Episode 89 of the 90s adaptation had Neko Musume becoming insecure about her young age, and going through a PlotRelevantAgeUp thanks to the powers of the MonsterOfTheWeek. This becomes ironic considering her actual AgeLift in her 2018 incarnation.

* CounterpartComparison: Was frequently compared to ''Anime/YokaiWatch'' during TheNewTens, since both of them are franchises centered around Youkai. ''Yo-Kai Watch'', however, [[LighterAndSofter is much more kid-friendly]]...at least until ''[[DarkerAndEdgier Shadowside]]'' came around.
* CultClassic: The franchise has only managed to reach cult status outside of Japan, though it's slowly becoming more popular thanks to it's official Crunchyroll subs.
