* GrowingTheBeard: The first step was the development of Ito's art to be cleaner and more detailed, and thus, both more beautiful and frightening. The next was his increased commitment to long-form series which led to perhaps his best work, ''Uzumaki''.

** Is Tomie's regeneration a supernatural means to protect herself from the men who want to chop her to pieces? Or does she cause people to chop her to pieces as a form of reproduction (also explaining why she's so pointlessly aggravating to her "boyfriends")? The former was suggested in "Mansion," although the speaker was hardly a reliable source of information.

* 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 {{re|surrectiveImmortality}}generates, usually with multiple bodies in one HiveMind. At one point, 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]], to say nothing of the child she drives insane in the "Boy" chapter. She also uses transplants to [[AssimilationPlot take over girls' bodies and minds completely]]. In another 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]].

* FunnyMoments:
** The chapter that has a man named Tetsuo "rescue" a Tomie that was growing out of the body of another murdered Tomie, and eventually he ends up keeping it around, even "planting" it in a pot. All the same BodyHorror of the series applies in this chapter, but there's something hilarious about a disembodied head yelling at poor Tetsuo like a spoiled brat, demanding expensive jewels and food.
** There's a chapter later in the series that shows Tomie having gotten sway over a crowd of male thralls who do whatever she wants. She even gets to have the caviar and foie gras that she demands in almost all of her appearances... but now she's sick of it because she has it so much.

** 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]].

* AlternativeCharacterInterpretation: 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?

* CounterpartComparison: Tomie has a lot of similarities to Helen Vaughan, a beautiful yet sinister woman who is a humanoid abomination from the novella ''The Great God Pan''. They use their great beauty to seduce males then corrupt both soul and body of their victims.

* 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 latter 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.
