* AutoScrollingLevel: Sukui Falls is one of the upwards variety, with Tamako riding on the enormous hands of a Tearai Oni to ascend to the top of the falls and take on the giant yokai.
* BottomlessPits: Many stages have these, such as Chochin Cave, Giri Giri Pass, and Daitengu Mountain.
* {{Checkpoint}}: These appear as small statues that gain a red cape and hat when touched. Reaching them will save the number of coins Tamako is carrying with her and allow her to restart her progress in a stage.



* DeathIsASlapOnTheWrist: Dying at any point in a stage has no serious consequences on Tamako and simply forces the player to start from the beginning or the last checkpoint they activated. If Tamako collected a Maneki Neko or a cassette tape before dying, the player doesn't need to try and collect it again. However, dying does reset the number of coins Tamako is carrying to what she had when she reached her last checkpoint.

* {{Retraux}}: The game has 16-bit visuals that look like they came straight out of the 1990s.



* TemporaryPlatform: Jinmenju fruits are of the crumbling variety.
* TrappedInAnotherWorld: The game's ExcusePlot is that Tamako has become trapped in the realm of the yokai after wandering into their world by accident.
