** You could also say that it's because he's an adorable {{Cloudcuckoolander}} and overprotective but ''loving'' father.
** Or that he looks and dresses like a magical SteamPunk Creator/TimBurton character.
** Or that he looks like a redheaded cross between Music/DavidBowie and Creator/NeilGaiman.
** Or because he has a mostly untouched backstory as a former human who became an undying sorcerer of the sea.
** Or because he's ''funny as hell''.
** Or just that he can be creepy and adorkable at the same time (at least in the English dub, since some of it has to do with his voice). For instance: "Respect your father!" (said menacingly, the creeper part) -> essentially a pratfall (dorky) -> "Girls, I'm trying to save your sister!" (said pleadingly/worriedly, kinda cute as a protective dad thing).
** [[RunningGag Or because]] he's voiced by Creator/LiamNeeson in the English dub.
** How about all of the above?

* SugarWiki/AwesomeArt: To be expected of a Creator/StudioGhibli production, obviously, but ''Ponyo'' is particularly notable in that none of the film was animated with CGI.

* SugarWiki/SweetDreamsFuel: ''Ponyo'' is easily Studio Ghibli's most feel-good movie.

* RetroactiveRecognition: The English dub, for fans of Noah Cyrus' later pop music career.
* {{Squick}}: Ponyo occasionally engages in squicky behavior, like when she spits dirty water on Kumiko's dress and snuggling a baby's face.

** The theme song. The English version of the song segues into a rock 'n roll remix and is consequently less cute.
** Pretty much the entire movie. The ending shot will have you diving for your insulin.

* TearJerker:
** Well, not the movie itself, but the ''reason'' behind the movie. See RealitySubtext.
** The scene where Sosuke found Lisa's car, but Lisa is missing. Every time he calls her name, you can hear the worry in his voice. He is brought to tears when the calls become unanswered. Ponyo ComicallyMissingThePoint over his tears doesn't even break the moment and makes it seem more sadder, as she seems unaware how sad and worried he is. It becomes a moment of heartwarming later on when she takes his hand and suggest they find Lisa.
--> '''Ponyo:''' Here I got your boat. There's water coming from your eyes. Let's go find your mom.

* GermansLoveDavidHasselhoff: This anime film by Hayao Miyazaki based loosely on Creator/HansChristianAndersen's TearJerker FairyTale "Literature/TheLittleMermaid" was apparently popular in Denmark enough due to the fact that Denmark simply gave it it's own [[http://www.kino.dk/film/p/po/ponyo-paa-klippen-ved-havet Official Website]].

* AmericansHateTingle: Ponyo herself is pretty divisive to American Audiences, due to her occasional gross-out nature and oddities throughout.

* HarsherInHindsight: The 2011 8.9 earthquake had the ocean sweeping over elevated roads in the same fashion as the film. Nobody dying, and everyone shrugging it off as a 2.0 earthquake? ....yeeeeeeeeeaah.... not really. Makes it a FunnyAneurysmMoment in the film, too.
