** Subverted in "Billions Alone" (the short story at the end of ''Manga/HellstarRemina''), where [[spoiler:the protagonist's crush was revealed to have stitched her parents together. Whether she became afflicted with the sewing madness by her loneliness and despair, or was one of the parties responsible for the incidents, is left unanswered.]]

* DiabolusExNihilo: Few of the horrific beings who show up in Ito's works have known backstories or match any creatures from myth or legend... which [[Administrivia/TropesAreTools makes them all the more TERRIFYING]]. Compare a horror story where the villain is a vampire: [[OurVampiresAreDifferent the tension only lasts until the characters deduce which of the stock vampiric weaknesses apply in this 'verse]]. But if the villain's [[Manga/HellstarRemina a planet-eating abomination from the another dimension]]? A [[Manga/TheEnigmaOfAmigaraFault cliffside full of people-shaped holes]]? ''[[Manga/{{Uzumaki}} The very concept of the spiral shape itself]]?''

* IdiotPlot[[invoked]]: He frequently does this intentionally, and plays it for horror. The people in his works quite often do not act, by any stretch of the imagination, like real people, and this quite frequently seals their doom and ruins any chances they might have to escape their gruesome fate. Sometimes their [[WeirdnessCensor Weirdness Censors]] go into total overdrive and cause TheCassandra to remain the Cassandra to people who have previously been direct witnesses to as many as ''[[Manga/{{Uzumaki}} three separate instances of the supernatural craziness he regularly warns people about]]'', and other times [[Manga/HellstarRemina they turn a young lady into an overnight celebrity over something as trivial as having a celestial body named after them]], and then, when that celestial body turns out to be a world-devouring EldritchAbomination, proceed to attempt to kill that woman [[InsaneTrollLogic in the insane belief that because it was named after her, killing her will somehow stop it]].

* SlidingScaleOfIdealismVersusCynicism: Leans towards the cynical side, as one might expect from a horror writer, with most stories ending with the protagonist dead/transformed/insane/[[FateWorseThanDeath worse]]. That being said, he's not without idealism, and some stories do end with bittersweet/[[RayOfHopeEnding ray of hope]] endings, and even a straight Earn Your Happy Ending if you are '''EXTREMELY''' lucky. And for all the horrible things that happen to his protagonists, he is completely against the idea of nihilism and your actions being useless, as [[Manga/HellstarRemina ''Remina'''s]] aesop is essentially ''no matter how bleak things seem to be, so long as you are still alive there is hope for the future''

** Also a man in ''Long Dream'' who experiences dreams that feel as if they last far longer than the time he spends sleeping. Eventually he has nightmares that seem to last for years.
* AntiMagic: The psychic sisters in ''Ghosts of Prime Time'' can't make the protagonist laugh with their psychic powers possibly because of him being psychic himself as he can see ghosts. [[spoiler: They try to kill him after he learns their secret, he survives but his best friend does not.]]

* AuthorAppeal:
** Unnatural beauty, disgusting tongues, and unusual hair play several roles in his work, and Ito really likes themes of obsession and compulsion, with the two corruptions of human behavior appearing in most of his stories. "Magami Nanakuse" seems to examine this latter fascination of his with the titular obsessive and compulsive author character.
** He also seems to absolutely despises cheating boyfriends, with most of them is on the receiving end of the supernatural forces in his story. His comeback has him also dishing out punishment for cheating girlfriends too.
* BadassBystander: In ''The Hanging Balloons'' when the titular monstrosities attack one man [[HopeSpot grabs a crossbow and shoots one of them, killing it instantly]] [[spoiler: which also kills the girl it's linked to]].

"Gentle Goodbye", "Heart of A Father", "Approval", "The Giftbearer" are easily the most obvious examples while "Dead Man Calling", "The Long Dream" and "Memories" focus equally on both sides.

** Particularly noticeable in his short stories. The character designs used for Kirie and Shuichi from ''Manga/{{Uzumaki}}'' appear all over the place with different hairstyles. Less savory characters tend to have more unique facial designs. This trope seems to be enforced in the case of Magami Nanakuse, whose face is notably different from Ito's other women...because she's not a woman; at least, not biologically.

* WorldOfSymbolism: His surreal horror can actually be seen as a vehicle for commentary and meaning. In particular, a lot of Ito's stories can be read as criticism of Japanese societal norms. For example, ''Gyo'' is about the atrocities of World War II (such as the human experimentation in Unit 731) that Japan has yet to apologize for, and ''Hellstar Remina'' is about Japan's dangerously exploitative pop-idol culture.

However, she turns invisible whenever they approach her, which together with gaps of missing time convinces them that they have been abducted by aliens.
