Trivia: Mononoke
  • Anime First
  • Fan Nickname: The Medicine Peddler's other half — which is never explicitly named in the series — has gained the nickname "Hyper" in Japan (presumably short for "Hyper Mode").
  • Hey It's That Voice: The Medicine Peddler is voiced by Takahiro Sakurai, also known as Suzaku Kururugi and Cloud Strife.
    • Additionally, the masked man from the Noppera-Bo arc is voiced by Hikaru Midorikawa, and the fish demon from the Umi-Bozu arc is voiced by Norio Wakamoto.
    • Genkei, the monk from the Umi-Bozu arc is voiced by Frieza (also Mayuri from Bleach), which is hilarious, since Norio Wakamoto also did the voice for Cell (Dragon Ball). And Sogen, Genkei's disciple, is a certain emotionless Espada who happens to love pasta.
    • The worst part? It's Isane (also from Bleach) giving birth to a fish-baby thing... Yes, that means Kayo. Made even worse by the fact that Isane has an irrational fear of fishcakes. Worst fear indeed.
    • The Going Merry/Soifon/Cirucci Thunderwitch/MEDUSA is being abused by her husband in the Noppera-Bo arc.
    • Umi-Bozu Arc: Gilgamesh's (FateStayNight)/Rob Lucci's (OnePiece) worst fear is manju, apparently.
    • Rukia/Shirley/Seras Victoria (Fumiko Orikasa) was strangled to death in the Bakeneko arc.
    • Amusingly enough, the Medicine Peddler's VA also voiced Tentomon back in the day.
  • Keep Circulating the Tapes: The anime was licensed for North American release at one point, but its licensee went bankrupt. As a result, the series is in a limbo that has yet to be resolved.
