* HeyItsThatGuy: LiveActionAdaptation Ginko is portrayed by Joe Odagiri, known in Tokusatsu fandom as ''[[Series/KamenRiderKuuga Yuusuke Godai]]''.
* HeyItsThatVoice: Many Creator/{{Funimation}} regulars are used for the dub, most notably TravisWillingham as Ginko. This can practically turn each episode into trying to guess who voices the character of the day!
** Hilariously, most of the recurring Japanese cast members also have major roles in ''Manga/DetroitMetalCity'' - Yuto Nakano (Ginko) as Alexander Jagi, Creator/AiKobayashi (Tanyuu) as the manager of Death Records, and Creator/YujiUeda (Adashino) as Krauser himself. It's an amusing contrast to their mostly low-key performances as their Mushishi characters, to say the least.
* NamesTheSame: Happens a few times. For instance, the names "Kodama" and "Fuki" have been used for both a type of ''mushi'' and an unrelated CharacterOfTheDay.
