* MoralEventHorizon: Tomie crossed it in the fourth chapter by grafting pieces of herself onto a girl that [[BodyHorror grew into many more Tomies]], which are so painful [[FateWorseThanDeath that her screams sound like thunder]].
* TechnologyMarchesOn: In "Photograph" it takes ''one'' accidental photo from the only girl in school who owns a camera to make Tomie lose her cool. How on earth would Tomie cope with ''everyone'' owning a camera that can instantly send film and video to everyone else?
** Then again, it might only work with actual film.
** The implication seems to be that not every photographer can bring this out of her. Her "father" in "Mansion" admits his own pictures never turn out that way.
* TooDumbToLive: Tomie, actually. Despite being killed hundreds, if not ''thousands'' of times, she still continues to mock and belittle those obsessed with her, eventually having them snap and kill her in return. One would think she would learn after awhile.
** AlternativeCharacterInterpretation: What if she actually ''wants'' to die?
*** Alternately, her ability to piss everyone off (or make them so obsessed with her that they murder her and hack her to pieces) [[FridgeBrilliance could be intentional, as it allows her to "reproduce" over and over]]. The same could be said for every Tomie duplicate's desire to kill any other Tomies they encounter.

* BigLippedAlligatorMoment: "Hair", as it spends an entire Tomie-less chapter exploring a property of Tomie that ultimately amounts to nothing- no advancement of the Tomie "species", just death.

* FauxSymbolism: There's an argument to be made for the series and its titular character being a metaphor about abuse, but it could just be a horror series.

* AlternateCharacterInterpretation: Is Tomie a bitch because she's an AnthropomorphicPersonification of lust and violence, and the death and destruction she causes in her wake the whole point of her existence in terms of the reason she was put on the earth?
* CompleteMonster: [[VillainProtagonist Tomie]] is a HumanoidAbomination who enjoys [[ManipulativeBastard toying with men to get what she wants]]. She gets them so devoted to her that they'll commit murder and suicide for her, and then drives them to murder her, after which she always [[ResurrectiveImmortality regenerates]], usually with multiple bodies in one HiveMind. One time, she experimented on a girl, attaching chunks of herself to her victim that proceeded to [[BodyHorror grow into more Tomies on her]]. This leaves her in such pain that [[FateWorseThanDeath her screams sound like thunder]]. Another time, a bunch of Tomie chunks grew into more Tomies at the bottom of a lake, where they proceeded to lure many men to jump and [[WouldHurtAChild drown one young boy]]. She also uses transplants to [[AssimilationPlot take over girls' bodies and minds completely]]. In the final chapter, she turns an old couple who took her in against each other, leading to the wife being DrivenToSuicide and the husband killing Tomie and the maid, [[{{Greed}} all so she could get their money]].

* VillainSue: Tomie zigzagged in and out of this trope, depending on the stories. In most standard stories, she utterly ruined the life of the people she encountered. The only things that made keep the viewers interested is because Ito occasionally gives the story a BittersweetEnding or a HereWeGoAgain but with ''another'' character.

* DesignatedHero: Tsukiko and the male model character from the later stories. The former is involved in taking pics of her male classmates without permission to sell to her female friends and the later is an arrogant asshole who not only tries disfigure Tomie after she disfigures him, but also starts creating NEW versions of Tomie (who can age) simply to torment the new versions by watching them age and lose their beauty that way.
