* 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?
* 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.
* 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.
** AlternateCharacterInterpretation: What if she actually ''wants'' to die?
* XMeetsY: ''Film/TheThing1982'' goes {{Seinen}}.
