YMMV: Mind Game
- Cult Classic: Even beyond anime circles, this film earned Masaaki Yuasa a name. Noted fans are Satoshi Kon and Bill Plympton. The film and its author have been discussed in animation classes.
- Fetish Fuel: The "Balloon Dance". about three-quarters of the way through the movie.
- Magnificent Bastard: God.
- And in second place, everyone involved with the film crew. Every last one of 'em.
- What Do You Mean, It Wasn't Made on Drugs?: especially the Disney Acid Sequences in the belly of the whale.
