This manga provide examples of:
- Emotion Eater: The demons are fed with people's despair.
- Hollywood Acid: Gastric acid inside Numagozen's stomach is shown to dissolve human flesh in seconds. Uratarou hoped that it could kill him, but it can't.
- A Minor Kidroduction: The manga's prologue.
- No Ending: While Uratarou's journey to revive Chiyo ends in success, thus resolving his personal arc, Japan is still a demon infested hellhole and any plot threads related to any of the other characters (particularly the ones from before the timeskip, who are never seen again) are left utterly unresolved.
- Protagonist Title
- Spoiler Title: A minor case, since Uratarou's true name was revealed only in the third chapter because no one asked him, before that he was refered as "Kijin-sama".
