* VulgarHumor: Just name it, and, chances are, someone in Gintama's either done it or alluded to it -- for a shounen series, a surprising amount of vulgar stuff happens. This includes:
** Gintoki and Umibozu peeing on a dead wormlike alien (You Know What Happens if You Pee on a Worm).
** Hasegawa wetting his pants and wearing a diaper.
** Hijikata zipping his pants and snagging the zipper on his private parts.
** Yoshiwara, the courtesan safe haven that even lets a kid run a ''toy store''.
** In the Onmyoji Arc, a battle is literally fought with Gin's... tama (balls). The two fighters even gave them individual names. That last one was more of a ShoutOut to ''Manga/SketDance'', due to the names they gave them.
** Matako's name is usually censored whenever she appears thanks to her name being similar to the Japanese word of ''"Vagina"''.

* CainAndAbel: Siblings Kagura and Kamui are protagonist and antagonist for a good chunk of the series, though Kamui acts more indifferent. Kagura's still sore over the attempt to kill their dad and the abandonment, though.

* {{Padding}}: [[invoked]] There is an episode in the anime where characters talk about methods of padding when an anime OvertookTheManga. And they spend half the episode doing... well, [[http://rutube.ru/video/8d96dbd964d45625deb6a2c6cdd04f91/ exactly that]].

The series had two anime movie adaptations and one compilation movie series. The first movie is a retelling of the Benizakura arc, the second movie is an original story involving Gin jumping forward 10 years to a changed Edo, and the compilation movies recap the Shinsengumi Crisis and Four Devas arcs. Additionally, the series saw its first live-action adaptation film, ''Film/{{Gintama}} (2017)'', which adapted the Benizakura arc. This was followed by a sequel the next year covering the Shinsengumi Crisis arc, and also saw two webseries that aired alongside each movie (one adapting the Mitsuba arc, the other adapting several comedic stories).

* DistantFinale: [[spoiler:The true final chapter is about Tama waking up in the series' equivalent to the Meiji era. She and Tamako watch a video the rest of the cast made to tell her [[WhereAreTheyNowEpillogue what happened after the final battle]], but everyone makes something up to tell her because it would be more interesting.]]



** The ''final'' final chapter ultimately tries to one up even this: its DistantFinale takes place [[spoiler:in their Meiji era, with only Tama and Tamako available to piece together what happened in the interim with the prerecorded help of their friends]].

A third series, ''[[NewSeasonNewName Gintama°]]'' (note the circle), was announced and began airing in April 2015. Unsurprisingly, Sunrise opted out of producing it, and were replaced by Creator/BandaiNamcoEntertainment's newly-formed animation branch, [[Creator/BandaiNamcoPictures [=BNPictures=]]]. This series ended in March 2016, with the last episode teasing viewers with a screenshot from the next arc, implying another anime is already in the works. Indeed, a fourth series titled ''Gintama.'' (yes, period included) aired from January 9 - March 27 2017, with another series dedicated to reruns called ''Yorinuke Gintama'' airing the following week. A new series titled "Porori Arc" started airing in October 2017, this time covering the comedic and less plot-heavy chapters that were originally skipped in ''Gintama°'''s run. The next big and final arc, "Silver Soul", was partly adapted and aired as split cours from January to October 2018; [[NoFourthWall according to Gintoki in the final episode]], this season ''was'' meant to be the anime finale but failed due to Sorachi needing more time to wrap things up in the manga at the time. The real final season has been announced and is in the works.

** ''Gintaman''. The levity of the characters is almost entirely removed leaving something so gruff that's it'a hard to take seriously. To say nothing of how ''Gintaman'' was influenced by Gintoki lecturing the author of the manga (a gorilla) on comedy and how to write a popular shounen manga.

Added DiffLines:

*** Episode 6 (episode 322) also has a subtle one for comedic effect, in which [[spoiler: Pakuyasa replaced Gintoki in the Joi War portion]]. Of course, it was returned to normal afterwards.

Added DiffLines:

* AspectRatioSwitch: Used in the latter part of the series to highlight important flashbacks, notably during [[spoiler:Gintoki and Takasugi's fight, where their past was shown in letterbox]].

Added DiffLines:

** The "Shogun ka yo?!"/"It's the Shogun?!" running gag gets an [[OhCrap Oh, Crap!]] call-back when [[spoiler:Gaimon, one of the Iga ninja traitors, realized that the Shogun is still alive and disguised himself as one of the ninjas]].


** The final popularity poll of the manga has Shinpachi crying out of anticipation that he'll end the series with [[RunningGag yet another eighth place position]], only to be surprised that he was bumped up to seventh. The poll closes out with him wondering how to feel about it.
