YMMV: GeGeGe no Kitaro
- Alternative Character Interpretation: In Japanese mythology, the Nurarihyon is a rather benign yōkai best known for being a moocher. GeGeGe no Kitaro reinterprets him as a devious villain.
- Ear Worm: Ge... ge... ge ge ge no geee...
- Considering the subject matter, this doubles as Hell Is That Noise.
- Ensemble Darkhorse: Neko Musume is without a doubt the most well-known outside of Japan. Many people know her without knowing the series.
- Memetic Mutation: You damn lolicons!
- Nightmare Fuel: Some of the more evil youkai are creepy.
- Superlative Dubbing: The series' had a relatively large following in Latin America thanks to the dub version of the 1996 series, much like other series' having been dubbed in the early to late 90s (like Dragon Ball Z, Sailor Moon or Slam Dunk, to name a few).
