* SuspiciouslySimilarSong: Whenever the show parodies anything space-related, the background music will sound something similar to a ''Franchise/StarWars'' soundtrack.* ThisIsYourPremiseOnDrugs: It's basically ''Manga/RurouniKenshin'' on pot, salt LSD's, reefer, and any other drug you can think of, mixed with pop culture references, parody and ''Franchise/LupinIII'' thinking it's in the future.

** Shinpachi's job is to be the StraightMan for a lot of the series' wacky antics, and for a lot of fans he does an admirable job, but just as many consider him more obnoxious than funny.

** Bakuchi Dancer by DOES (Gintama Movie) is this for Gintoki and Katsura [[KillEmAll slaying all of the Alien Pirates of Harusame]] while the former switch weapons in killing spree right before pointing their swords at Takasugi.

* TakeThat: What does the author do when the campaign against Ecchi appears? Give us an UnwantedHarem Arc of course!

* ArcFatigue: The "Silver Soul" arc the manga. The story took months as it [[BackForTheFinale brings back almost every single character Sorachi created across the series]], but the resolution to the series hadn't come near to being finished.

** "SILVER" by RIZE (Season 4 Ending 1) is the total badass theme not just for reuniting the four Joui Warriors but for Gintoki and Takasugi as well.

** The Masochism of [[Creator/YuuKobayashi Sa-chan]] was this, (particularly involved with chains) since she did her role as [[VideoGame/FateGrandOrder Enkidu.]]

** Well if it isn't enough, [[Creator/AkiraIshida Zura... I mean Katsura]] rode in two Mobile Suits (One Zaku in Jump Festa and a pixelled Original Gundam in Season 5) in this anime. Remember that he voiced Athrun Zala of ''Anime/MobileSuitGundamSeed'' and its sequel, ''Anime/MobileSuitGundamSeedDestiny'', who rode Justice Gundam in these 2 series.

What is more hilarious is when one of the characters (who voiced by Ishida) has the tendency to [[MemeticMutation Self-Destruct]] any mobile suits when he rode on.

** Gintoki and Takasugi have a fair amount of this in later arcs, after the students' backstory with Sensei is finally broached and Takasugi steps back from being the primary villain of the series, [[spoiler:with possible vague AssPull thrown in that the world he wished to "destroy" may ''or'' may not have been Utsuro's the entire time (though Gintoki and Katsura point out their allying together wouldn't absolve him of wishing for the more literal implication that's been assumed till now)]]. Though once more-so traditional Weekly Shonen Jump rivals (i.e., as friends, within a given definition of the word), he and Gintoki are now fatalistically fixated on the idea of being the ones to kill each other, to the point that when Takasugi saves [[spoiler:Shinpachi]], he expresses his reasoning with "Make sure no one else takes his head." before basically saying that he cares more about Gintoki and him having their last showdown than anything else at that point. (Katsura and Sakamoto end his 'until we meet again' with "...take care of our friend for us.") Possibly as a LampshadeHanging, after Sakamoto "translates" Gintoki and Katsura's replies to Takasugi with at least a partial no-bullshit filter, an irritated Gintoki tells him to "properly" translate "Fuck you, man. Ptoo." and Sakamoto goes "Mr. Takasugi, he's basically sayin'... He wants to fuck you." to Takasugi's unchanging poker-face and Gintoki's ire. (Amusingly, when Katsura changes the subject to spitting on Takasugi via the translator afterwards, Takasugi reacts to the idea with immediate hostility and his own spit.)
