* BigLippedAlligatorMoment: The Azuki bean song, which comes right out of nowhere to explain their positive energy. "LOVE AND PEACE!!"
* FamilyUnfriendlyAesop: Remember kids, telling people what they want to hear, even if it's BlatantLies is a sign of maturity![[note]]This may be ValuesDissonance, as an episode of ''Anime/DigimonAdventure02'' had a similar aesop.[[/note]]
* FridgeHorror: [[spoiler:Not only is Kato still alive, he hunted Tadashi down...and now he knows where Tadashi lives!]]
* NarmCharm: Even for a Japanese live action movie this one can be downright silly at times, but it's still quite an entertaining piece.
* SpecialEffectFailure: Varies from yokai to yokai. Some are quite good, while others... aren't. For example, the [[spoiler:kirin]] looks like a very obvious CGI model with awkward running animation.
* WhatDoYouMeanItsForKids: Yes, despite the fact that Creator/TakashiMiike directed it and Yasunori Kato of ''Literature/TeitoMonogatari'' fame is in it, it's a kid's movie.
