* MythologyGag:
** The cruel treatment towards the pig is a callback to the original Nekojiru manga, where the characters were prejudiced against pigs for some reason.
** The sequence where Nyatta hits the pig over the head and consumes the lumps formed from his injuries is also taken from the manga, but it was done to a monkey boy who served them as a specialty item in his family's restaurant.

* EarCleaning: Nyatta's father does this to him early on in the movie. Seeing how Nyako just ran all night and he tries to get back his sister, this scene could be considered a HeartwarmingMoment.

* VillainProtagonist: A less outwardly villainous example than most, but it's still noticeable. Nyatta may be trying to bring his sister back to life, but he repeatedly displays cruelty against others, ''especially'' the pig.
