** There is also the ''Dead or Alive'' films, three films with wildly-different stories (with the only common point being the protagonists are played by Riki Takeuchi and Show Aikawa). Most of them tend to deal with how society divides people with similar motivations and character traits to fight for diametrically-opposed causes.

Takashi Miike is a highly prolific (and highly controversial) Japanese auteur. He takes his primary influences--Creator/DavidLynch, Creator/DavidCronenberg, and Creator/PaulVerhoeven--and turns UpToEleven in many of his films. He has directed several movies a year since his first release in 1991, as well as a handful of television programs, for an average of about 3-4 a year; starting soon after graduating Yokohama Vocational School of Broadcast and Film, where he studied under legendary Japanese filmmaker Shohei Imamura. Although the bulk of his work are theatrical releases, mainly {{Yakuza}} action films, he also produces a considerable number of DirectToVideo V-cinema releases as well. The former are often used to finance the latter; which he claims he does because they allow him more creative control, and greater freedom from censorship and traditional narrative structure.

He's also [[TheCameo cameo'd]] as an actor and voice actor in various works, most notably as ''himself'' in Creator/Suda51's ''VideoGame/NoMoreHeroes2DesperateStruggle'', which fits the tone of the game perfectly.

* PlayingAgainstType: Of all anime series to adapt into film, it had to be Yatterman?!
** Or a movie version of ''[[VisualNovel/PhoenixWrightAceAttorney Phoenix Wright]]''?
** He also did a Live Action movie of Nintama Rantaro, which have all the signs of SoMyKidsCanWatch.
** Miike himself lampshaded this trope, commenting, "Me, a 'Master of Horror'? I'm the guy that made ''Salaryman Kintarō''!"[[note]]It's funnier because his movie adaptation of said manga came out the same year as ''Audition''.[[/note]]
** Who would have imagined he'd be the director chosen to adapt [[Manga/JoJosBizarreAdventureDiamondIsUnbreakable the fourth part]] of Manga/JoJosBizarreAdventure into a live-action movie?!

Takashi Miike is a highly prolific, and highly controversial Japanese auteur, who states his primary influences to be Creator/DavidLynch, Creator/DavidCronenberg, and Creator/PaulVerhoeven, a combination he takes and turns UpToEleven in many of his films. He has directed several movies a year since his first release in 1991, as well as a handful of television programs, for an average of about 3-4 a year; starting soon after graduating Yokohama Vocational School of Broadcast and Film, where he studied under legendary Japanese filmmaker Shohei Imamura. Although the bulk of his work are theatrical releases, mainly {{Yakuza}} action films, he also produces a considerable number of DirectToVideo V-cinema releases as well. The former are often used to finance the latter; which he claims he does because they allow him more creative control, and greater freedom from censorship and traditional narrative structure.

Both inside and outside Japan he's best known for BlackComedy, over-the-top violence, and {{Gorn}}; but his films cover a much wider range of genres and styles. Along with his signature action and horror, he's also produced examples of period drama, sentimental road picture, teen drama, more traditional crime drama, children's movies, and some that [[GenreBusting defy any attempt at labeling]], such as the live-action/claymation horror comedy musical ''Film/TheHappinessOfTheKatakuris''.
