  • Foe Yay: There are moments with Rinne and Masato.
  • Nightmare Fuel
    • In chapter 63, there's an extremely small mini-shrine with small children's hands coming out of it, asking for help. VIZ even typed out the multiple "Saaaaave ussss~" requests in a spooky font. It's probably the creepiest moment in the entire series, so far.
  • The Untwist
    • Rinne's grandmother Tamako is the one who brought Sakura back from the land of the dead. It's obvious to the audience right from the first panel she's reintroduced.
    • The "hot secretary's" identity.
  • The Woobie: It's pretty much impossible to not feel sorry for Rinne. With the way his life is, he really deserves a hug; and maybe some more offerings at the weather hutch.
    • Jerkass Woobie: Arguably Kain, as antagonistic as he is to Rinne, since Sabato keeps swindling money from his mother.
  • X Meets Y
    • Starts off looking like (early) Bleach meets InuYasha.
    • More like Bleach meets InuYasha meets Ranma meets Urusei Yatsura.
    • The more glaring Bleach similarities end within a few chapters, so now it seems like InuYasha meets Urusei Yatsura, performed by the cast of Ranma after a make-over while reading some Bleach.
    • The main difference between this and most other ghost manga is that RIN-NE focuses more on solving the spirits' problems to make them go on instead of beating the shit out of them. There really isn't much fighting here.
