Advertisement:propertag.cmd.push(function() { proper_display('tvtropes_mobile_ad_1'); })In an Alternate Universe version of the Edo period, Japan was not visited by American flotillas and subtly encouraged to drop her tariffs and expand her international trade — but was visited by a race of space aliens known as the Amanto, who brought with them super-futuristic know-how and gadgets (resulting in things like mopeds, TVs and robots being invented earlier than usual), a ban on swords and the fall of the samurai caste as we know it. A resistance group set out and declared war on the Amanto to no avail, and the samurai were all but wiped from the map. Enter Gintoki Sakata, a former member of said resistance group; once an impressive swordsman, he dropped out because in the end, it really wasn't worth it to be fighting against a bunch of stupid foreigners in the first place.Nowadays, Gintoki makes his living as a self-appointed freelancer, taking on any job he can for cash to pay his rent, but that doesn't seem to happen very often when there's sweets and Shonen Jump to be had. Joining him in his exploits are samurai-in-training Shinpachi Shimura, who winds up taking the brunt of much of the series' abuse and leads a pop idol fanclub; Kagura, a young alien girl who spends most of the time eating, beating someone up, or just generally being an idiot; and Sadaharu, Kagura's giant pet dog that gleefully chomps on everyone and anyone. A lot.Advertisement:propertag.cmd.push(function() { proper_display('tvtropes_mobile_ad_2'); })Gintama is the oft-anachronistic brainchild of Hideaki Sorachi, who had originally intended to create a manga inspired by an NHK drama about The Shinsengumi. However, despite the historical connotations that the Edo period brings, it's a Gag Series in one of its most warped states, filled with Shout Outs to everything under the sun (even fellow Shonen Jump series such as Bleach and One Piece are not immune to lampooning), over-the-top humour, ridiculous puns, sight gags and a liberal dash of action to top it all off. Stories tend to emphasize no such thing as black and white and how that plays into the Japanese concept of honor.After the manga premiered in December 2003, a one-episode OVA was produced for JUMP Festa. A TV series produced by Sunrise made its debut in April 2006 and concluded in March 2010, followed by Yorinuki Gintama-san (literally "The Very Best of Gintama"), which was re-runs of old episodes remastered in HD with new opening and ending themes. Eventually the re-runs came to an end and, in April 2011, the series returned with Gintama' (note the dash). That show ran until March 2012, only to return in October of the same year as Gintama': Enchousen, which concluded in March 2013.Advertisement:propertag.cmd.push(function() { proper_display('tvtropes_mobile_ad_3'); })A third series, Gintama° (note the circle), was announced and began airing in April 2015. Unsurprisingly, Sunrise opted out of producing it, and were replaced by Bandai Namco's newly-formed animation branch, 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; 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.When the series concluded its run in Weekly Shonen Jump in September 2018, the characters announced (in series, in fact) that the final arc would be wrapping up in Shonen Jump GIGA. This ran in GIGA from December 2018 to February 2019 before moving to its own app, where it finally concluded in June 2019.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, 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 web series that aired alongside each movie (one adapting the Mitsuba arc, the other adapting several comedic stories). A third anime movie titled Gintama The Final will adapt the final chapters of the manga and act as the finale of the franchise "for real this time," and is set to release on January 8, 2021.An English translation of the manga was published by Viz Media, but cancelled after Volume 23 due to low sales. The anime is licensed by Sentai Filmworks, who have so far released the first season on 4 DVD sets, as well as the movie adaptation of the Benizakura Arc on DVD and Blu-Ray. The releases are (unfortunately) sub-only, though the movie came with an English dub and, according to The Other Wiki, Sentai was considering releasing more of the show depending on how well the movie does. Instead, Crunchyroll acquired the license and plans to release the entire series on Blu-ray and DVD with a complete English dub. The Latin American fans can rest easy too, since a dub of the whole series is planned for them as well.

And Then John Was a Zombie

comment
And Then John Was a Zombie: At the end of the Timeskip Arc, Shinpachi whacked everyone infected by warts to turn them back to normal and he discovered Hijikata was also affected as well. Knowing how the warts attract ambition, it gives him a lesson to not shirk off his Straight Man duties and vows to work harder. Gintoki arrives and whacks Shinpachi with a paper fan, telling him that he is also a wart affected by ambition much to former's dismay. After turning Shinpachi back to normal, Gintoki drops the Yamcha act to reveal that he wasn't affected at all and only blended in because everyone else changed so he went with the act until he knows what happened and why the warts didn't affect him as well.

Gintoki and Sadaharu switch bodies at one point in the anime with no explanation. Hilarity Ensues, including Sadaharu taking a dump in Gintoki's body which Kagura and Shinpachi (who are unaware) judge the crap out of. He and Shimpachi's glasses exchange souls at the end.

Only Six Faces
 Gintama (Manga) / int_18a84025
comment
The author's commentaries in the compiled volumes are pretty much nothing but this, like a "how to draw" column that highlights his inability to draw more than one incredibly ordinary face, or saying that the unique aesthetic of the comic comes from the fact that it's "really poorly drawn". He also complains about his editor at every opportunity and at one point described working on a deadline as "walking a tightrope made of toilet paper across the Grand Canyon, and there's a monkey that looks like my editor peeing on the toilet paper".

Title Drop: The penultimate arc of the series is called the "Silver Soul" arc. Though the spelling they use for the arc is a different reading ("Shirogane no Tamashii" rather than "Gin Tama"), this was the intended reading of the series title.

Never Trust a Trailer
 Gintama (Manga) / int_19ebe383
comment
Never Trust a Trailer: The in-magazine post chapter previews attracted some criticism in Japan because they were always made in the early stages of writing the chapter in question, meaning that the preview and the actual story always ended up completely different to the point of being funny. It was quite common to have a wacky-sounding preview like "Gin enters a marathon!" only for next week's story to be deadly serious. Very likely intentional, this being Gintama after all. One of the chapter titles/episode titles alludes to misleading previews: "The Preview Section in JUMP is Always Unreliable". Parodied in the Gintama: Shiroyasha Koutan special where a four-minute trailer of an epic-looking movie about the Joui War (which includes a fake scene of Takasugi losing his eye to an Amanto who supposedly killed Shouyou) is shown. Shinpachi marvels at how good it will be, only to be told that the movie is fake and is never going to happen.

Self-Parody
 Gintama (Manga) / int_1d52b714
comment
Self-Parody: In one chapter, Gin gets sick and Kagura decides to take over his identity until he gets better. The result is a highly exaggerated parody of the story's usual formula: Gintaman. The levity of the characters is almost entirely removed leaving something so gruff that's it's 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.

Reality Ensues
 Gintama (Manga) / int_1d9a2764
comment
Reality Ensues: For all that it's a gag-series that regularly breaks the fourth wall and plays a lot of its antics for comedy (when the arc isn't a more serious one, at least), the series actually had this happen at one point, but in a very unusual way. At one point, Gintoki and his allies face off against the Shinsengumi in a series of gaming challenges for a chance to win a highly-sought-after video-game console; one of the challenges sees Kondo and Katsura facing off in a dating simulator which proves to be rather difficult to win, since the in-game girl is...temperamental. The object of the challenge is to try and seduce the girl before the other player can do so, and Kondo attempts to accomplish this by using his cursor to click on the girl's boob at rapid-speed, which in effect has his game-avatar feeling her up...and because the contact is being done in a public place and without the girl's consent, his game-avatar ends up being arrested. Honestly, you'd think that Kondo, the Shinsengumi commander, would know not to do something that could result in prison time, either in a video-game or real life (then again, the fact that he's a Stalker with a Crush toward Shinpachi's sister Tae is always Played for Laughs). While Sacchan's goofiness and lack of success as an assassin are generally Played for Laughs, these traits comes back to bite her in the Glasses arc. After she bungles several high profile assignments due to wearing glasses with the wrong prescription, her superiors decide that she's a liability (especially since she could be forced to give up sensitive information if she were ever captured) and try to have her killed.

Breaking the Fourth Wall
 Gintama (Manga) / int_1e7487cd
comment
Breaking the Fourth Wall: If there is one that existed in the first place. Sometimes the characters themselves address the audience in comedic scenes. Possibly the most triumphant example of this trope: Otae jumped out of the TV to kill the author because she was pissed off that the gorilla was more popular with fans than her. The anime promptly gets screwed up and stopped airing altogether, until the studio staff rebuilt a robotic replacement of the author.

Back-to-Back Badasses
 Gintama (Manga) / int_1f19f198
comment
Back-to-Back Badasses: Many characters get into epic fights with their backs to each other. Gintoki and Katsura against the Harusame in the Benizakura Arc is probably the best example in the series. It gets taken Up to Eleven in the Benizakura-hen movie. Gintoki and Umibouzu against the huge alien monster attacking the Terminal. Gintoki and Kyojiro in episode 108. Gintoki and Hijikata again the criminals Hijikata's targeting in episode 166. WHILE HANDCUFFED!!! (Although there are a few people who thought that the fight itself would have been a Shout-Out to Double Arts if it continued). Gintoki and Tsukuyo against Jiraia's Mooks in the Red Spider Arc. In the Four Devas Arc we have Gintoki and Jirochou against Kada's Elite Mooks! It also counts as an Enemy Mine. A short villainous example, Kamui and Takasugi against the people trying to execute Kamui during "Odd or Even". Tsukuyo and Nobume against the Naraku in the Courtesan of a Nation Arc. Everybody who participates in the final battle in the second movie gets to fight back-to-back with each other to crank up the awesomeness. A case of back-to-back-to-back-to-back with the reunion between Gintoki, Katsura, Tatsuma, and Takasugi in Rakuyou. Almost everyone in the Silver Soul Arc has one.

Experienced Protagonist Gintoki, Katsura and Takasugi are explicitly stated to be inhuman at fighting, Kagura, Kamui and Umiboozu is part of the Yato race and can hold their own against many enemies, and many of Gintoki's allies are not pushovers themselves. The Shinsengumi is pretty much your standard police force save for The Leader Kondo and TheAces Hijikata, Sougo and Shimaru. These characters this play this trope straight when they need to fight some goons before challenging a Big Bad; however, while all of them can fight against a crowd by themselves, they've aso shown to be overwhelmed if they are not able to escape or defeat the mooks before getting tired or help will arrive.

Chekhov's Gun
 Gintama (Manga) / int_22cf536c
comment
Chekhov's Gun: One of Katsuo's minions mentions very early on that Jirocho used to be in love with Otose. This becomes a very important plot point much later in the Four Devas Arc. Shigeshige's resignment letter to his position as Shogun that he presented to the Tendoshu in the Courtesan of a Nation arc. It was initially "rejected" by them, but was conveniently brought up again in the Shogun Assassination arc when they found a better puppet to replace him as Shogun: Nobunobu. Say, remember the priestess sisters Ane and Mone who were driven out of their shrine, which guarded the Dragon's Gate and which the Terminal was built on top of? Turns out it has an even bigger importance than just powering up the Terminal. The Dragon's Gate, also known as the Altana, is a power source found on several planets that the Tendoshu was formed to harness. Earth's Altana is particularly special, because it's the reason Utsuro is unable to die.

Bedsheet Ghost
 Gintama (Manga) / int_23b059ec
comment
Gintoki aside in its introductory chapter/episode, nobody ever comments on how bizarre Katsura's friend Elizabeth looks; it resembling to be a cross between a Bedsheet Ghost and a penguin, plus it also seems to just be a costume, as its legs appear to be those of a man's on the odd occasion where they're visible. It's possibly justified by the fact that the world is filled with all the manner of aliens, but even by their standards, it's still extremely weird-looking. It turns out that it's actually a member of an entire race of Human Aliens who don the same costume, just with the addition of accessories so they can actually distinguish one another. Or not. That was actually just its substitute that fills in for it on Mondays.

Anachronism Stew: Aliens (known as Amanto) forcibly open up Japan instead of Commodore Perry and crew, bringing all sorts of new-fangled technology to Edo (space travel, electric fans, bazookas, etc). And since Gintama is supposed to be a Gag Series, you get things like the main character being a big fan of Weekly Shonen Jump (most notably Bleach, since he uses a sword too, as well as manga set around the same time that Gintama is supposed to take place in), idol singers, and countless references to modern pop culture mixed in with more traditional fare, like The Shinsengumi, the Joi resistance, and the Oniwabanshu (though disbanded in the series). They even make reference to the very figures and countries that would have been involved in Japan's opening in some gags as if it still happened that way.

What Did I Do Last Night?
 Gintama (Manga) / int_27ba9b64
comment
What Did I Do Last Night?: Invoked with Sa-chan's first appearance, where she had fallen through Gintoki's roof and slept on top of him. Gintoki was drunk the day before and can't remember anything, so she uses that to her advantage to hide from her enemies. This is the premise that starts off the Scandal Arc, with Gintoki getting absolutely wasted and sleeping with Otose, Tae, Kyuubei, Sa-chan, Tsukuyo and... Hasegawa. It's subverted when it turns out to all have been a prank to get him to stop drinking, then double-subverted when it's revealed that Hasegawa was not in on it. Gintoki promptly heads to a bar to get drunk enough to forget he just learned that.

Gender Bender: As punishment for blurring gender roles, the followers of Dekobokko swap the sexes of the residents of Kabukicho and a number of people who are coincidentally in Kabukicho at the same time, such as Kyuubei, Tsukuyo, Sa-Chan and the Shinsengumi. The only ones unaffected are Shinpachi (his glasses only turned pink) and Tae (who was outside of Kabukicho when it happened). Kyuubei, who the arc focuses on due to their long-time struggles with their gender identity, stated that they think of themself as neither male or female at the end of it.

They say the same things and get along very well.

Evolving Credits
 Gintama (Manga) / int_3297cfbb
comment
Evolving Credits: Episode 138's ending replaces the current Yorozuya members with the old members introduced in the episode. The 8th opening eventually adds Katsura, Takasugi and Sakamoto running alongside Gintoki in the sequence of him during the war. In the Kintoki Arc, Kintoki replaces Gintoki in the opening and ending sequences. At the last episode of the arc, Gintoki replaces him and the some character interactions has been changed (such as Kagura and Shimpachi kicking him while hugging Kintoki in his version). After he's formally introduced and is shown to be one of the villains, the 15th opening/second Gintama° opening shows Nobunobu's full face instead of the back of his head. When the cast was gender bent in the Gender Bender arc, the ending shows them on their gender bent forms. The ones who didn't appear were given minor changes instead (such as Katsura and Sakamoto getting a hair bow) The openings 16 and 17 have some very interesting changes happening. For the 17th opening, you can see a comparison here: At the start of the Shogun Assassination Arc, the chorus of the 16th changes from a simple running montage of the Yorozuya Trio to some the main characters starting to fight enemies. The shogun walking to the light is also added in the end. The end scene has the sky turn orange and a subtitle is added to the logo. The 17th opening keeps the chorus section of the last song, but now it has some character images overlay their scenes and blood spatters cover up the screen in random moments. The version 2 shows some of Gintoki's fight scenes, Takasugi and Gintoki's encounters, and some scenes from the first movie, with the same effects as the first one. The third one changes the whole opening again to show some scenes from the arc itself. At the start of the FA arc, it keeps the same song but the entire opening has changed to a dark and gloomy atmosphere and shows the cast fighting the Naraku at the chorus part. Utsuro also makes his appearance here. When the Shogun Assassination arc begins, the 25th ending/third Gintama° ending expands a few more scenes to help relate to the arc. In the sequence of Gintoki facing all his important enemies, Shoyo is shown after Takasugi, which is a possible hint to 1) Gintoki being the one to kill Shouyou during the war in exchange for Katsura and Takasugi's lives, and/or 2) the next arc where he eventually fights Utsuro who is revealed to be Shouyou (sort of). The Shogun is shown in the reflection of the third kunai along with Sarutobi and Hattori, hinting at the Oniwabanshuu's role in the assassination as well as his connection to them. Kagura and Kamui nod their heads slightly with a look of determination and blood-lust respectively in their eyes, hinting at their upcoming fight. The Gintama. opening adds in Takasugi running alongside the rest of the Joui Four from Episode 7 (episode 323) onwards, after Takasugi's woken up from his coma and has now joined in the fight. Episode 6 (episode 322) also has a subtle one for comedic effect, in which Pakuyasa replaced Gintoki in the Joi War portion. Of course, it was returned to normal afterwards. The opening of Gintama.: Silver Soul adds in a few more characters at the end of the character montage in the second half when said characters join in to help the Yorozuya fight (such as Jirocho, Piranko, and the Ketsuno/Shikigami group). The Shinsengumi are also properly added in and shown coming to the Yorozuya's aid in the opening once they make their grand return in the arc. Episode 6 of the second cour of the Silver Soul adaptation (episode 359) adds in Nobunobu in Shigeshige's scene in the opening after Nobunobu succumbs to his gun wounds and "joins" the past shoguns in the afterlife, including Shigeshige himself.

After the End: Effectively. The setting is an epilogue to a great, big Shounen hero story where the protagonist now has to readjust after the war he and his friends fought ended in failure, leaving aliens to take over the world. Somewhat subverted, as it's not nearly the dystopian hellhole one might expect. Gintoki just has a tough time paying the bills. Played straight on Silver Soul epilogue.

"Freaky Friday" Flip: Gintoki and Sadaharu switch bodies at one point in the anime with no explanation. Hilarity Ensues, including Sadaharu taking a dump in Gintoki's body which Kagura and Shinpachi (who are unaware) judge the crap out of. He and Shimpachi's glasses exchange souls at the end. An entire arc based around soul-switching happens with Gintoki and Hijikata after they get hit simultaneously by a truck... which just gets worse and worse as more characters got involved.

Traumatic Haircut: Played for Laughs when the Shogun visits the barber which coincidentally is being run by the Yorozuya for the day. The Yorozuya mess up his haircut and so end up losing his topknot, and their attempts to cover it up are horrifying (includes Gintoki stretching his face so bad to the point of tears to cover up his mistake and Kagura placing dog poop on his head). The Shogun's traumatised enough from this experience to go out of his way to reform the barber shop, thinking the shocking treatment was due to poor conditions.

Comic Trio: The Yorozuya trio are the primary one of the series. But even at times, the Shinsengumi's main trio, Kondo, Okita and Hijikata, count as well.

Beautiful All Along: Played with. In the Love Choris arc, Gintoki uses all-out willpower to make Pinko look this way. Of course, the justification is that adults have to use their imagination to make their now-old-and-ugly partners look more attractive.

Actor Allusion
 Gintama (Manga) / int_392372f9
comment
Actor Allusion: A few that often even crosses over No Fourth Wall territory. One of the 3Z Ginpachi Sensei omake has a funny one, in which Tomokazu Sugita tells about how he got a call from his mother after the Stand Inn arc was aired, telling him he really should work on his singing. In Episode 65, Okita says "Mind if I beat you? Can't hear your answer!" and his eyes flash purple. Two involving Hasegawa's voice actor, Fumihiko Tachiki: Episode 150 includes a frame-by-frame parody of a scene in Neon Genesis Evangelion. Hasegawa takes the place of Gendou Ikari, also voiced by Fumihiko Tachiki. He also, sometimes does some mannerisms as Gendou. In Episode 122, before he's revealed, the Eyecatch has his silhouette shaped like Bleach's Kenpachi Zaraki. Hijitaka says "LET'S PARTY!" in his introduction as hosts in the Takamagahara host club. The difference is, instead of a horse, Hijikata uses Kondo as his Harley Gorillason! Upon Gedomaru's arrival in Episode 249, Gintoki yells "Saber!". When Tsukuyo kicks Gintoki, Gintoki yells out "Kshatriya". In Episode 258, after contemplating what to do after finding the shogun near dead, with Gratuitous English that ends with 'away' a lot of times, Gintoki resorts to something similar to the Joestar family secret technique, also with the same pose (in English), "RUN AWAAAYYYY." In Episode 329, Shinpachi compares himself to Masaki Suda, the actor who plays him in the live-action adaptation. Gintoki and Kagura beat him up because of that.

Amazon Chaser: Many men in the series find Tsukuyo even more attractive for being able to take action in a physical fight. Umibozu had an... instinctive response to the woman who would become his wife. He was sure getting involved with her could kill him. So he chatted her up. Kondou is not an open masochist like Sarutobi, but he pines after Otae, who beats the tar out of him several times a day. It's up in the air if Tatsuma and Mutsu have romantic feelings for each other, but Tatsuma was persistently determined to have the pavement pounding Yato pirate queen girl at his side. If Okita has a sweet spot for his rival Kagura, it's because she can fight him on an equal level without him needing to hold back, or fight alongside him without having to worry about her safety. Shinpachi to a degree seems to appreciate strong girls, since he has a soft spot for his sister Otae. Averted with Gintoki; every main and secondary woman in the series is an amazon and, respect and friendship aside, they freak him out more than anything else, which is why he's still single.

No Fourth Wall
 Gintama (Manga) / int_3b4f620a
comment
No Fourth Wall: Present in the whole series. It's worth mentioning that the characters often badmouth and make fun of both the animation staff and Sunrise (and their successor, BN Pictures), the author himself, the companies involved with the DVD home releases (Aniplex) and the merchandise, such as videogames, their voice ators, etc. The most known and big example is the Popularity Poll Arc. It starts with the announcement of the results of a fan poll to determine the most popular characters that people voted in the Weekly Shounen Jump magazine in 2009. The arc (spanning four chapters and three episodes) proper is entirely based on the results of this poll, with several characters depressed over having finished lower than expected while others gloat over their good showings. Also, every time anyone appears onscreen and on-panel, a number floats above their head reminding the viewer what place they got. And then shenanigans happen, from Otae CLIMBING OUT OF THE FRAME announcing she would kill the character who placed ahead of her (being the series creator), and people FIGHTING over their popularity, to form alliances with others to claim their places, etc. The characters (mostly Shinpachi) often wonder if the constant parodies, references and such would serve a proper sue for them. The first episode of Gintama° (episode 266) opens up with a press conference as Gintoki breaks down and apologizes for the show's "recent failures" (such as trolling the viewers two years ago about how Season 2 was supposed to be the last). The first episode of Gintama. (episode 317) has the Yorozuya holding boxes full of their belongings as they "move back" to their nighttime slot (and then Kagura finds a headpiece from the "previous occupant" aka the protagonist of The Disastrous Life of Saiki K. which was indeed the anime that used that timeslot in the last anime season). The second to last popularity poll of the manga has Shinpachi crying out of anticipation that he'll end the series with 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.

Schizo Tech: Robots, laser cannons, and video games exist in what is otherwise Meiji-era Japan, leading to things like samurai fighting on spaceships, and bright Zeerusty towers literally next door to traditional Japanese houses. And even the robots come in "steam-powered tin can" and "ridiculously human" flavours, with nothing in between.

Just don't let Sadaharu eat strawberries combined with milk, just don't.

At that point, Kagura had been feeding Sadaharu strawberry milk, hence his sudden growth and awakening of his powers.

The Greatest Story Never Told: In the second segment of episode 21, Gintoki essentially saves the world while looking for an electric fan. Even though the episode's Damsel in Distress autographed the fan, Shinpachi and Kagura still refused to believe him. After the conclusion of the Silver Soul arc, Gintoki's role in it went unnoticed by the public, especially after he skipped town to break the Odd Jobs fellowship. The man who got all the credit ended up being Hasegawa, of all people, netting himself a cushy life as a war hero and a bit of a swelled head.

Sunglasses at Night: Bansai and Hasegawa wear sunglasses all the time.

He reluctantly stops wearing them and gets a job as a taxi driver right away... but then loses the job and is back to wearing sunglasses.

Episode 231 has the Yorozuya and the main Shinsegumi trio attending a funeral for the owner of a restaurant Gintoki and Hijikata were regulars at, which the foreword states will be a solemn, dignified affair. It goes well up until Kagura gets involved, then takes a nosedive from there after she completely messes up at paying her respects properly, which provokes the owner's ghost into trying to ensure the processions go smoothly by force. It ends up having the opposite effect due to how horrified Gintoki and Hijikata are of him (made worse by the fact that only they can see him), which leads to them making even more mistakes, wrecking his coffin and launching his corpse into a delivery truck among other things.

Stylistic Suck: The 8th opening gets redone in one episode on Paint, due to Otae killing off Sorachi in the previous episode. A very, very crude version of the original opening ensues. Episode 243's Chageth Note, especially the animated version. The art is okay (one Shachi takes over anyways) but the story is terribly cliched or nonsensical (at one point the Yorozuya's conversation appears in the story!).

Light Feminine and Dark Feminine: The series offer quite a good spectrum of this.

Straddling the line are Sacchan, Catherine and Pirako.

Butt-Monkey: Take your pick... Hasegawa Taizo A.K.A. Madao, short for maru de dame na ousan ("totally useless middle-aged man") - or whatever else you can string together with words starting with the syllables "ma", "da" and "o" - in Japanese) gets absolutely no respect at all. Yamazaki falls victim to lots of punishment, especially from Hijikata. Kondo, the butt gorilla, keeps getting beating after beating from Otae, in addition to whatever Matsudaira or karma has in store for him. Zenzo takes plenty of abuse from Ayame or Gintoki, most of which literally aimed towards his butt—on top of his hemorrhoids—making him another literal instance of a butt monkey. Prince Hata; you know he's going to get abused the moment you see him. Nothing good ever happens to him. Shinpachi is the butt monkey for the Yorozuya trio, often having to put up with his companions' insults and laziness/retardation/plain old idiocy. The crossover episode in Sket Dance also had him being rejected by Himeko. However, he's also the Straight Man (Tsukkomi) or the mother of the crew, so he seems to be able to hold his own by yelling at Gintoki and Kagura whenever they do or say something inappropriate. Which is often. Gintoki himself when none of the usuals are around. Shigeshige is the heavyweight champion of this... getting painful levels of humiliation in mere panels/seconds after his appearance, but remains stoic even if he is crying inside. Sakamoto is another one as well, whenever he appears you can expect that he will do something stupid and be beaten up by the scene's straight man (usually Gintoki or Mutsu.)

Hidden Villain: While most of the arc is focused on Jirocho and Pirako, the real villain of the Four Devas Arc is Kada, who is also revealed to lead the 4th Division of the Harusame Pirates.

 Gintama (Manga) / int_49a2599d
comment
Platonic Prostitution: Gintoki is manoeuvred into this situation with Tsukuyo at the end of the Red Spider Arc after being promised free drinks. Tsukuyo assumes that she's supposed to sleep with him in gratitude for him saving Yoshiwara, but Gintoki is appalled at the suggestion and instead gets her to sit down and drink with him. It would have been a nice, friendly evening after that had it not been discovered that Tsukuyo has an extremely low tolerance for alcohol.

Genre Roulette: Gintama cycles between being a gag manga, completely serious battle manga, and heartwarming slice-of-life (well, as close as it can get in Alternate Universe historical Edo, anyways). According the Word of God each chapter is its own genre.

Urine Trouble: First happens in Episode 6 when Gintoki takes a piss in front of the police station after he is interrogated to show his distaste for the police. In Episode 19, Hasegawa is relieving himself off of a cliff in a flashback when a woman notices and blushes. The worst of it is that, as he tells us, that woman came to be his future wife! In Episode 42, Gintoki and Umibouzu pee on the giant alien they just killed as a sign of victory. In Episode 53, Gintoki has to put out a fire but doesn't have any water to use, so he uses his penis to do the job for him. In Episode 115, when he is lost on an island, Katsura writes a big "SOS" in the sand with his pee. In Episode 190, Gintoki pisses on a mound of dirt that turns out to be a cursed cat's grave. Gintoki once pisses into a river while a man (who is a little bit downstream) is trying to drink from it.◊ Happens to "Mountain" Zaki when he tried to challenge Kondo in a fight and was scared to soil his pants by Okita and Hijikata.

Improvised Weapon: In episode 99, Gintoki and co. play a video game contest to win a parody of the Nintendo Wii. The final round is a Dragon Quest MMO parody in which Gintoki ends up using the village elder (and later the elder's corpse) as a weapon. Things get crazier when Okita and Kagura show up respectively wielding the King and the Demon King as weapons. In episode 77, Kagura uses Okita as a weapon. And then took a picture of her victorious aftermath. Katsura, when he's transformed into a cat, accidentally rips off Gintoki's tail (who has also been turned into a cat) and use it as a sword and later does the same with his own tail, in the Kabukicho Stray Cat Arc. In that same arc, Kondou (in his gorilla form) uses his schlong as a weapon.

Wham Line
 Gintama (Manga) / int_4e7c4536
comment
Wham Line: Just as the Shogun Assassination Arc seems to end with the status quo changing, but with a hopeful tone, the tone sharply changes after this ominous line that counts as a Meaningful Echo said by Nobunobu is uttered by one of the Shogun's childhood friends who assassinates him with a poisoned needle, just as Shigeshige welcomed his loyal friends with opened arms. The end of Chapter 525 immediately follows up on the Wham Episode that was the Shogun Assassination arc: Chapter 553/Episode 317 explains what has happened with Kamui's 7th division and how their offense against Harusame led to a trap by the use of their own stronghold which the organization doesn't usually do. Leading to why Matako and Henpieta are not with Takasugi. Despite the meddling of the Big Bad, it initially appears that the war between the Altana Liberation Army and Earth will be avoided due to diplomacy and the promise of fighting their common enemy, the Tendoshu. Then in chapter 602 Prince Enshou reveals to Shijaku that the target of their revenge, the Tendoshu, had already been found a month ago, reduced to a bunch of living corpses by Utsuro. Unable to get his revenge on them, Enshou changes the target of his revenge to Earth itself. Chapter 609 initially starts out comedic but ends with a darker tone when Gengai reveals that his secret weapon to turn the tide for the Earth forces doesn't just shut down the Altana Liberation Army's machines, it shuts down all machines, including Tama and Kintoki who are powering the weapon.

Author Existence Failure: Parodied in-universe. During the Second Popularity Poll Arc, Otae, pissed off that a certain gorilla got a better ranking than her, breaks the fourth wall to kill Sorachi in the real world, and the quality of the art of the chapter (and its equivalent in the anime) gets worse until it fades. He sort of gets better in the next episode/chapter.

Live-Action Adaptation: Parodied in one episode of the anime, replacing Gintoki and Kagura with mannequins, while Shinpachi is replaced by a pair of real glasses. Instead of getting an "adaptation", the viewers are treated with a tour of what's inside the building of Sunrise. After 13 years of serialization, a live-action adaptation of the series began in 2017, mostly as films. The adaptation is directed by Yuichi Fukuda (of The Hero Yoshihiko fame) and stars Shun Oguri as Gintoki.

Strawberry Shorthand: Gintoki insists the superiority of strawberry milk in his famous Rousing Speech. Just don't let Sadaharu eat strawberries combined with milk, just don't. According to Ane and Mone, the powers of an inugami are released by a crimson fruit and goat's blood... aka strawberry and milk. At that point, Kagura had been feeding Sadaharu strawberry milk, hence his sudden growth and awakening of his powers.

 Gintama (Manga) / int_50f5dabe
comment
Reincarnation: A robotic case in the epilogue: Tamako, the android Gengai made following Tama's shutdown, is essentially the latter android's copy lacking most of her memories. If in the event the first Tama is fixed, she will serve as Tama's memories post Edo's restoration and will fuse with her. Ultimately, this turns out not to be the case and she is treated as her own separate entity, still activated after waking Tama up. This happens to Utsuro after his defeat. Gintoki had a hutch that he will return and searched for any signs of him for 2 years. Turns out he was ejected in one of the Dragon's Gate entrances as a baby, where he rapidly grew up in a span of days. In the epilogue, Takasugi is heavily implied to have been reborn following the Altana tower explosion, thanks to Shouyo's influence.

Nobody Poops: Averted. Even the girls poop. Including male-turned females (see: genderbent!Kondo). Parodied in a dialogue between Shinpachi and Kondo, when the latter tries to get Shinpachi to be realistic about his favourite idol only to then be hypocritical when Shinpachi asks about his sister. They reach the conclusion that Otsuu's poop comes out in the cute shape of an egg and Otae's farts come out as pink smoke.

Adaptation-Induced Plot Hole
 Gintama (Manga) / int_5663a595
comment
Adaptation-Induced Plot Hole: Although mostly consistent (helped by two breaks), a few plotholes caused by the anime have occurred. Ending 10 shows Kamui with black hair when he actually has orange hair like his sister and mother. When asked about this, Ginpachi-sensei... throws the letter in the bin. The Beninzakura movie includes a flashback scene that strongly implies that Gintoki was taken in later by Shouyou after Takasugi and Katsura; however it's established later on that it was the other way around. Unsurprisingly, when the anime and manga make that establishment, Sorachi/Ginpachi-sensei lampshade the problem when they answered fanmail asking about it and promptly made up a deliberately nonsense explanation (which was that instead of introducing Gintoki to the class, Shouyou was actually just asking around for clean underwear for him and then told him to wipe his ass with the book).

Enemy Mine: Usually happens to the Shinsengumi and the Yorozuya Trio when they have a common enemy to take down in the early episodes. Gintoki and Jirocho team up with each other at the end of the Four Devas Arc to take on Kada and her Elite Mooks. In a later manga arc, Katsura and Kondo have to team up with each other (as do Katsura's Joui fraction and Shinsengumi) to escape from prison and bring down Nobunobu's oppressive rule.

 Gintama (Manga) / int_5cd8680b
comment
Doorstop Baby: Kanshichiro, a baby who looks eerily to Gintoki (it's not his), who was abandoned by his mother to avoid trouble with her family. He even provides the page image! Sadaharu, whose size would not exactly suggest it, is found by Kagura outside their home. He's turned out to have originally belonged to Ane and Mone who gave him up because they couldn't afford to keep both him and Komako.

Pixellation

comment
Pixellation: Used frequently to the point of ridiculousness. Pixellated vomit tetris anyone? Yo dawg, I heard you like pixellation. So we put Madao in a pixellated shit body vomiting pixellated vomit on pixellated crap so everyone can become pixellated shit. And since you like pixellation that much, we will feature a guy who is always covered in pixellated vomit, so Sorachi doesn't have to draw his face.

The Smurfette Principle: Averted. While the Yoroyuza Gin is a classic Two Guys and a Girl dynamic, there are plenty of supporting female characters who actively participate in the different story arcs of the series.

Katsura's tales that have nothing to do with the plot of the chapter taking place. One example is in episode 110, Katsura was led into counting sheeps so he could fall asleep. On the 13th sheep, he began fantasizing an elaborate and sad tale in High School A.U. style for this 13th sheep for a full 4 minutes!

Time Skip
 Gintama (Manga) / int_5fcb9ad1
comment
Time Skip: Done four times — and not even four sequential timeskips, they're all in nearly the exact same period! One ends up being fake, while the other two are played straight (but one is reversed, sorta). All three timeskips, naturally, parody cliches that frequently turn up in shounen timeskips. In chapters 324 to 326 (episodes 1-2 of Gintama'/episodes 202-203 overall), as Shinpachi is supposedly sent two years into the future in; however it's revealed to be subverted as the cast had gotten attacked by wart-like aliens during their previous (manga) week-long hiatus, which made them become their future selves. Hilarious "changes/developments" include: Shinpachi reuniting with the Yorozuya... and is in disbelief to see that Gintoki looks like Yamcha and Kagura physically aged, breasts included. The kicker is that they made a promise to meet up in Sabaody Archipelago. Otae and Kondo somehow managed to get married and are expecting. Said kid is born pretty quickly (and a gorilla), and so are two other kids of other cast members. The Shinsengumi is now an empire led by (Jer)Kaiser (or (Ba)Kaiser in Japanese) Sougo 'Sadistic' Okita III, the Demon Vice-Captain title is now held by Yamazaki, and Hijikata is a living embodiment of Good Is Dumb, but not really. By the way, they want to conquer Edo. Yeah. In the Be Forever Yorozuya film, Gintoki is suddenly transported to five years into the future thanks to the Time Thief, and the world is on the verge of extinction (and he himself also died). Despite a considerably dramatic movie, tropes are still parodied, such as Gintoki freaking out over how much Shinpachi and Kagura have physically grown and changed and Okita becoming a Kenshin expy. After the climactic battle, the characters return to their own timelines and it's shown in the present day that the Yorozuya have reunited. A (legit) two-year timeskip occurs in the later stages of the series, after the battle with Utsuro reaches a conclusion. The Yorozuya have gone their separate ways to fulfil their personal motives, and the other characters also change in various ways. Despite the sobriety, there are still parodies galore: Otae and Kondou are supposedly having a child together, except it turns out Kondo has a child with his actual wife aka Princess Bubbbles the gorilla. Otae just got fat from his househusband training which includes cooking for the Shimuras). Katsura becomes Japan's prime minister under the name Donald Zuramp. Sakamoto goes bankrupt and goes on the Brave Men Road. Kagura has a child called Kanna, and Shinpachi is understandably freaked out since said child looks a lot older than two years old and Kagura should only be sixteen at this point. According to Kanna, Kagura gave birth to her Piccolo-style after eating one too many bananas. Then a further twist to this turns up, as it's revealed Kanna is Kagura after all. One last timeskip occurs near the very end, focusing on a rebuilt Tama and a video message left for her by her friends from the past.

Zombie Apocalypse: Parodied in one episode where a special kind of virus strikes Edo, making those who are affected act like zombies... with the interests of useless old men who like to lay around all day and do nothing but play pachinko note a parody of Kochikame's protagonist Kankichi Ryotsu. Katsura immediately starts calling them 'zombrows' due to the unibrows they immediately sprout upon infection. It spreads quickly and soon only a handful of people are left. The situation looks hopeless, but because Gin already acts like a useless old man the virus passes him over and he manages to get everyone back to normal.

Parody Names
 Gintama (Manga) / int_66a4e100
comment
Parody Names: Unfortunately, this is lost in translation, but this "Shinsengumi" is spelled with different characters from the real one. ("True selection corps" rather than "Newly selected corps".) More recognisably, many characters have the names of their real-life counterparts with a single kanji changed: e.g. Kondo Isao instead of Isami, Sakata Gintoki instead of Kintokinote At least until an actual Kintoki was made, and Katsura Kotaro instead of Kogoro. A Ginpa-Sensei corner even had him complain about the letters he gets from concerned parents writing in about their kids taking the parody names as historic fact. An interesting case that also includes Portmanteau Name: The ryuha (style) that Shinpachi and Tae inherited from their father is Tendo Mushin Ryu, which is a combination of two of the prominent ryuha used by the Shinsengumi: the historical Kondo's and Okita's sword style Tennen Rishin Ryu (in which both were entitled with the title of soke, or grand master. Hijikata also trained in the Shieikan Dojo but was never considered as a member of the ryu) and the historical Shinpachi's style, Shindo Munen Ryu (which also happened to be the style of choice of the historical Katsura, Ito Kashitaro, and Takasugi).

Fake Memories: In the Kintama Arc, Kintoki (the evil robot counterpart of Gintoki) brainwashes almost everyone in Kabukicho and Yoshiwara with soundwaves to forget a certain main character named Gintoki Sakata. He replaces all mention and image of the silver-perm haired with his own golden-straight perm haired identity... to become the series' protagonist! Except that he can't replace the memories of the man himself, as well of those of Sadaharu and Tama, because the wave didn't work on animals or other robots.

Averted when the Yato and Naraku enters the fray as the heroes facing them even in small numbers alone is pretty much a death sentence and many characters are only able to survive through sheer luck or by trickery, save for Umiboozu.

Casting Gag: Sunrise and the anime staff took the Renho arc's Gundam fight between Elizabeth and Dark Vader to the extreme, when they got Toru Furuya and Shuichi Ikeda to voice each one, respectively, and when they made the battle to resemble the fight between Amuro Ray and Char Aznable in Mobile Suit Gundam. Elizabeth even pilots the RX-78 Gundam! Kintoki, a perfect and opposite version of Gintoki, is voiced by Gintoki's real-best friend, Yuuichi Nakamura. Kensho Ono was invited to voice Kurokono Tasuke in the Joui Reunion arc, because he is the voice of Kuroko in Kuroko's Basketball. The casting of Gender Flip Kondo makes more sense when you realize that Chiaking used to voice a genderflipped Kondo in another anime. This isn't the first time Takahiro Sakurai did the role as a Shinsengumi member. In Ocean's dub the Piccolo parody is voiced by Scott Mcneil who previously voiced him in Ocean's dub of Dragon Ball Z. Sacchan's voice actress Yuu Kobayashi voiced her historical counterpart, Sarutobi Sasuke, once in the infamous Musashi Gundoh. Sakamoto's voice actor Shin-ichiro Miki would later go on to voice Sakamoto Ryōma from AkaSeka.

At the urging of Zenzou, he decides to secretly begin relationships with them and starts living with them... individually, in the same building, as he doesn't want them to know he's slept with all of them. Subverted in that his "harem" was a prank played on him to make him stop drinking. Except for Hasegawa.

Excited Show Title!: Parodied in the later seasons of the anime, where they use just about any punctuation mark but an exclamation point. Phonetically, they're all pronounced the same, but the closest thing that comes to this trope is the final season using a period in the title to match its ending. Completely averted in the manga, which uses the same title throughout its run.

Belligerent Sexual Tension
 Gintama (Manga) / int_75d6bf40
comment
Belligerent Sexual Tension: Sougo and Kagura. Both instantly tease and provoke each other whenever they meet. He's also been getting some tension with Nobume too since the Baragaki Arc, with the two constantly fighting each other but also holding some respect and concern for one another. Between Gintoki and both Otae and Tsukuyo. Others often mistake Otae and Gintoki for a couple (Sarutobi comes to believe that she's keen on him), but they always correct the error; however, the tension is lampshaded in Episode 156 - the climax of which culminates in look-alikes for Otae and Gintoki starting a relationship to the frustration of a look-alike for Kondo. Tsukuyo, by contrast, likes Gintoki, but she waits for him to reciprocate; while he doesn't, he occasionally takes advantage of her and touches her boobs or her butt - when he does, it takes her a while to react, but, when she does, he knows she doesn't appreciate it.

 Gintama (Manga) / int_762b9223
comment
While Sacchan's goofiness and lack of success as an assassin are generally Played for Laughs, these traits comes back to bite her in the Glasses arc. After she bungles several high profile assignments due to wearing glasses with the wrong prescription, her superiors decide that she's a liability (especially since she could be forced to give up sensitive information if she were ever captured) and try to have her killed.

Bug Catching: One story is dedicated to the Yorozuya going beetle-hunting (and clashing with the Shinsengumi, who are looking for the Shogun's pet golden beetle Rurimaru). For Kagura, it's to find a successor for her now crushed beetle Sadaharu No. 28 to use for beetle-fighting. For Gintoki, it's to get rich quick scheme.

Twice-Told Tale
 Gintama (Manga) / int_796a7bfc
comment
Twice-Told Tale: Gintoki may be no Kintarou, but one can still see the traces of the old folk tale in his backstory. Abandoned as a child, he was taken in by a kind soul that turned out to be a sort of "demon". He was an abnormally strong boy as a child, was somewhat aloof, mostly used his talents to fight, and later on in life ended up fighting some well-known "demons", though he got himself labeled as one in the process unlike Kintarou. Kintoki gets in on it too at the start of his arc, where he fulfills the "helpful neighbor" aspect of Kintarou's myth. That being said, Gin is pretty helpful too, but it takes a while for his assistance to be really apparent.

comment
All Love Is Unrequited: Mercilessly enforced. While there are bits of Ship Tease, Belligerent Sexual Tension and romance-like situations, that's all you'll get. All romance attempts are either met with the death of one of the lovers, utter disinterest or are strictly Played for Laughs with bits of slapstick abuse and stalker-ish courting.

 Gintama (Manga) / int_7b80226d
comment
The Kintarou Arc, it's revealed alien parasite known as the "Planet Eater" Parasite x that possesses and destroy planets while leaving biting marks on it via possessing lifeforms. On its conquest to Earth 18 years ago, he arrogantly closes his eyes and randomly possesses a lifeform to destroy Earth... only to possess the dog that was near-death in mother's womb and stuck with the Old Man for 18 years before on the same deathbed as him much to his dismay. Its Good Counterpart, "Planet Pukers" known as Parasite Z, possess lifeforms and fight off X's hosts to save the planet while leaving its mark (which is actually vomit hence the name}. As they arrive to Earth, Z split up and possess the lifeforms to counter X with eyes half-open... all possessing cats much to their dismay.

Breather Episode: Usually, there will be comedic chapters and mini arcs following the serious arcs, providing levity after the dour tones. The anime's "Porori Arc" serves as one for the anime as a whole, giving the team and the characters a whole season of comedic episodes (all of the comedic chapters they skipped) in between the heavy Rakuyo arc and the Series Fauxnale "Silver Soul" arc.

The opening of Gintama.: Silver Soul adds in a few more characters at the end of the character montage in the second half when said characters join in to help the Yorozuya fight (such as Jirocho, Piranko, and the Ketsuno/Shikigami group). The Shinsengumi are also properly added in and shown coming to the Yorozuya's aid in the opening once they make their grand return in the arc.

Conservation of Ninjutsu
 Gintama (Manga) / int_82f5ced1
comment
Conservation of Ninjutsu: Partially Justified and mostly averted in fight scenes. Experienced Protagonist Gintoki, Katsura and Takasugi are explicitly stated to be inhuman at fighting, Kagura, Kamui and Umiboozu is part of the Yato race and can hold their own against many enemies, and many of Gintoki's allies are not pushovers themselves. The Shinsengumi is pretty much your standard police force save for The Leader Kondo and TheAces Hijikata, Sougo and Shimaru. These characters this play this trope straight when they need to fight some goons before challenging a Big Bad; however, while all of them can fight against a crowd by themselves, they've aso shown to be overwhelmed if they are not able to escape or defeat the mooks before getting tired or help will arrive. Averted when the Yato and Naraku enters the fray as the heroes facing them even in small numbers alone is pretty much a death sentence and many characters are only able to survive through sheer luck or by trickery, save for Umiboozu. And thanks to his previous injuries from the Rakuyo arc, even he has to struggle against the latter.

Bait-and-Switch: Happens plenty of times across the series. You just never know when Sorachi will pull the wool over your eyes. The conclusion of the Renho arc has Elizabeth leave the series with a tearful goodbye and some big character expansion. Then another Elizabeth comes near Katsura, and he reveals the one that left was just the temp that comes on Mondays. invokedNobody was amused. Post "Silver Soul", Kondo talks about his retirement from the Shisengumi and his being a househusband for his new wife. In the same scene, Tae appears to be pregnant, eats the food Kondo serves her, and Shinpachi is (even more) used to his presence in their house. When Otose and Catherine believe that Tae and Kondo got hitched off screen, Shinpachi shows them the latter man's wedding photo... and he turns out not only to be politically married to the gorilla princess from way back, he also cooks for Tae to practice being a househusband for said princess, and as a result her swollen belly is just a full gut.

Prison Episode: All of the Joi leaders were sent to prison in one way or another. A much lighter-hearted version happened to Katsura during Katsura Appreciation Month. 13th sheep anyone? Gintoki later ends up in the same prison for two episodes. Sakamoto is also imprisoned by Harusame pirates as revealed by Mutsu in flashbacks. Takasugi also sent himself in a prison where he was able to gain followers to his Kihetai army.

Heir to the Dojo: Subverted, in that while Shinpachi and Otae both inherited their dojo after their father's death, they're the farthest thing from rich you can think of (the dojo nearly becomes repossessed in one episode) and nobody really studies there, either. They finally start it up again in the Beam Saber Arc and Shinpachi is shown to still be teaching students in the Gender Bender Arc.

Aristocrats Are Evil
 Gintama (Manga) / int_96144372
comment
Aristocrats Are Evil: Tokugawa Sadasada is this in spades. He kept a tight control over Edo for many years even after his supposed retirement, working to keep his empire alive for himself. He uses his nephew Shigeshige in order to do his bidding, has the Naraku on his side eliminating all the enemies trying to take him down and is the instigator of the Kansai Purge, and indirectly the reason of Yoshida Shouyo's death. Lastly, he forcibly parted Maizo and Suzuran and forced the former to serve him for decades, even knowing the promise they made to each other. It's easy to say that Takasugi killing him is very cathartic to watch. Tokugawa Nobunobu follows the above in jerkassery as well. He became power mad after taking the title of Shogun, and flaunts his powers to his enemies with no regards to his allies. Which is why his retainers left him after a brief struggle with the main characters.

Vulgar Humor
 Gintama (Manga) / int_9629d473
comment
Vulgar Humor: 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 Shout-Out to Sket Dance, 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".

Despite the meddling of the Big Bad, it initially appears that the war between the Altana Liberation Army and Earth will be avoided due to diplomacy and the promise of fighting their common enemy, the Tendoshu. Then in chapter 602 Prince Enshou reveals to Shijaku that the target of their revenge, the Tendoshu, had already been found a month ago, reduced to a bunch of living corpses by Utsuro. Unable to get his revenge on them, Enshou changes the target of his revenge to Earth itself.

Men Are the Expendable Gender: Zig-zagged. The Yoshiwara Arc shows females being killed and battled casually due to the presence of an Amazon Brigade, and the main girls regularly go out to lay their lives out on the line. That being said, girls usually have a higher survival rate than the guys outside of plot-important deaths.

Cerebus Rollercoaster: Most of the time it's comedy and gag, with the occasional heart-warming or tear-jerking episode. Then it gets very serious over the course of a single arc before going right back to comedy and gag. Then the next serious arc comes around a while later, and rinse and repeat. The series then focuses mostly on the serious issues from the Shogun Assassination arc onward.

Evil Counterpart: Takasugi gives a fairly good idea of what Gintoki and Katsura could become if they ever decide to go on the Roaring Rampage of Revenge. At the same time, Jirocho seems to be essentially a much older and evil Gintoki, but is really not evil at all. Itou as one for Hijikata, It's even acknowledged by everyone in the Shinsengumi that both are similar to each other. Only Itou just wants to take over the Shinsengumi and even teams up with Takasugi.

Foreshadowing

comment
Foreshadowing: The entire Shinigami arc serves as this for a certain reveal. Word of God even acknowledges this- it was "something that had to happen for future reference". The beginning of the Shogun Assassination arc with Shigeshige and Soyo foreshadows the end of the arc, only that the Shogun doesn't survive this time. Yamazaki's past as a reformed punk gets foreshadowed ever since the Time Skip arc, where he is shown as a punk who doesn't receive orders from a nice Hijikata, in a Shinsengumi that gets corrupted by Okita. The Time Skip parasytes accomplished a deep inner wish from the victim (Kondo getting married to Tae, Kyuubei not being a man or a woman, Kagura getting beautiful and stronger) and it looks like it is also the case for Yamazaki, since he has been scared of his superiors' strength ever since he met them... enough to turn him from a punk into the regular person he is today. Katsura and Shige Shige's conversation during the Confessional Arc takes an important turn much more later on:

This Is Reality: Probably the only time anyone's attempted to acknowledge the fourth wall (and it's made of balsa wood). In episode 169, the Yorozuya are attempting to cure Tama's illness. Because she's so obsessed with Dragon Quest, the arc is one big parody of the franchise, and at one point Shinpachi has to remind everyone that it's not really a game and they can't rely on standard conventions, such as save points, to get them through it.

And then there's Sakamoto, who even in the most serious situation, he often plays with it as a joke, laughing as a hyena. Thanks to that part of his loud personality, he is often punished by Mutsu.

Gag Dub
 Gintama (Manga) / int_9f240209

Gag Dub: In-universe, a few characters attempt to dub over other characters during the meta/fourth-wall-breaking episodes: Prince Hata does this in Episode 75, when he dubs Takasugi, much to Shinpachi's dismay and Gintoki and Kagura's hilarity; he gets kicked out of the apartment by an enraged Shinpachi. The Yorozuya does it again by Kagura doing Catherine, Shinpachi doing Yamazaki of all people, and Gintoki dubbing Matsudaira; it really helps that Gintoki's seiyuu is a fan of Norio Wakamoto from youth. Episode 176 Prince Hata comes back for a gag dub up to eleven, by dubbing the entire recap of top ten epic lines throughout the series.

Rogues Gallery: Okay, okay, we know, we know, it's not a superhero series. However, its hilariously absurd premise allows for a lot of the usual elements one expects of a superhero work (the hero uses insanely powerful abilities to defend his city from criminal elements and the occasional alien threat), so naturally Gintoki and company get to face several recurring antagonists of varying threat levels across the series, whether they be human or Amanto. Some, including Shinsuke Takasugi and the members of the Kiheitai (Bansai Kawakami, Matako Kijima, Henpeita Takechi, and Nizo Okada) prove to be quite dangerous, while others, such as Prince Hata and the Evil Organization, are either accidental threats or outright laughable depending on the episode's plot. Other adversaries include Zenzo Hattori, the Tendoshu, Oboro, Peacock Princess Kada, Kintoki Sakata, Utsuro, and the Harusame Space Pirates (which includes the likes of Abuto and Kagura's brother Kamui).

Gratuitous Rap
 Gintama (Manga) / int_a0609791
comment
Gratuitous Rap: Take your pick. The series is willing to throw in random raps for kicks. At a hospital, Kagura raps before Shinpachi stops her. She grabs a skateboard out of nowhere and pummels Shinpachi's head. While the trio organizes a group date for Kyuubei, Katsura (who denied the invite) is preparing a nationalist campaign... by practising a rap. It's ruined when Elizabeth uses her signs to "rap" along and a frustrated Gintoki kicks Katsura, asking why he even chose rap. Hilariously used in the Baragaki Arc, when Tetsunosuke tries to be Pretty Fly for a White Guy and raps at random times. This includes a rap battle against Gintoki.

The Revolution Will Not Be Civilized: In the final arc, the invading Altana Liberation Army are this and they thrash the city while trying to hunt do the Tendoshu as well as endangering the citizens. It took the Yorozuya's arrival for the citizens to stand up to them.

Overly Long Gag
 Gintama (Manga) / int_a188ac4b
comment
Overly Long Gag: Katsura's tales that have nothing to do with the plot of the chapter taking place. One example is in episode 110, Katsura was led into counting sheeps so he could fall asleep. On the 13th sheep, he began fantasizing an elaborate and sad tale in High School A.U. style for this 13th sheep for a full 4 minutes! People mistaking Shinpachi's glasses for him. The humour behind Kyuubei's pet monkey is its Overly Long Name, which gets repeated many times hence taking up a lot of unnecessary time/space. The anime even goes as far as to rewind through it at times. The cursed Blu-Ray player and her kotatsu story. It goes from a gag where she's worried if she has turned her kotatsu off to a cliche domestic abuse story. Don't ask us how. The Hard Boiled episode beats a dead horse with it's own leg, such as repeating the same stint in the first few minutes several times. Gintoki eventually gets sick of it and beats the policeman up, scolding him for taking up too much time of the anime.

Katsura often sounds like he lives in his own world, sometimes narrating situations that doesn't match with his Imagine Spotting, or even disguising to trick the Shinsengumi.

comment
Eye Scream: Narrowly avoided by Kanshichiro's mum. "Do you know why you were born with two eyes? So that you can still live with one after this." Later on, Gintoki stabs Hosen in his right eye with a pipe. Takasugi had his eye stabbed during Shoyo's execution by Oboro. The last image he saw with his left eye? Gintoki crying when he performed the execution. Many years later, Takasugi returns the favor, and stabs Oboro's left eye as well.

More Deadly Than the Male: There's almost no man in this series who hasn't had his ass repeatedly kicked by a woman for anything from a minor infraction to actual combat. Kondou loses to Otae, Tatsuma loses to Mutsu, everyone but Okita & Kamui have lost to Kagura, Gintoki has lost to every woman except Sarutobi & Ana, & few men can match Nobume with a sword.

Mood Whiplash: Played very straight. While this may be a parody series, you WILL find yourself crying or at least on the verge of tears just watching a few of those episodes. Or alternatively, because it's a parody series, you will find yourself bawling your eyes out only to watch the ending and be filled with the inexplicable urge to throttle Sunrise and Sorachi for trolling you all while laughing your guts out because the whiplash was so harsh it became hilarious.

Dramatic Irony
 Gintama (Manga) / int_ab5eea65
comment
Dramatic Irony: Often played in the serious arcs. For example, in the Shogun's Assassination arc, the name itself is dramatic irony. Sure, Shigeshige is shown at the start to be almost killed. Hattori sacrifices one of his friends to trick the enemies (and perhaps, even the entire nation) that the Shogun's dead... but it turns out to be a "shadow" double. And everything's looking alright... until Shigeshige is killed by a childhood friend/ally, who was used by the Naraku, at the end when he's already secured. To make things worse, he dies peacefully in Soyo's lap... while the Yorozuya is reading a letter of how good things have been going for them.

Instant Awesome: Just Add Mecha!

Instant Awesome: Just Add Mecha!: "Mobile Suit Gintama" from the OVA. Needless to say, it doesn't last very long. The first part of Episode 189. It's also a Shout-Out for the Mobile Suit Gundam series celebrating its 30th anniversary. Episodes 233 and 234 feature the Renho (Elizabeth's race)'s trump card for invading Earth — the Gunsam. One of them even gets hijacked in classic Gundam fashion by a guy who have the same voice actor of Amuro Ray. Lampshaded by the characters, who note that they would have been sued if the show hadn't been animated by Sunrise. The Renho arc also features Kaien, a Combining Mecha formed of the Kaientai fleet, used to defeat the Renho's mothership.

Idiosyncratic Episode Naming
 Gintama (Manga) / int_ac4ac8e5
comment
Idiosyncratic Episode Naming: The series' chapters are styled as "lessons", with each chapter title supposedly presenting some important life lesson. Due to the tone of the series, these "life lessons" tend to be rather wacky and nonsensical, or not even a life lesson at all as seen by the page quote. When some events have a serious tone, the episode naming changes to reflect those, as seen during the Shogun's Assassination arc.

Madonna–Whore Complex: Zig-zagged in Otsu's second major arc, where her reputation tanks after she's seen in a compromising situation with her producer.

It gets thrown out the window when Otsu's new idol group tries to stoop down to their level in a meet-and-greet-off, but then that turns out to have been orchestrated by her backup to show her as purehearted and above that nonsense in the ways that they and GKB48 aren't.

Retro Gaming: Nearly everyone makes references to Dragon Quest and other famous game franchises throughout the series. Katsura in particular is a big fan of the Mega Drive and Famicon. Goes the distance in episode 167 where Tama gets sick and transforms into an 8-bit sprite, complete with Dragon Quest style dialogue windows, earning EXP from going shopping and an inventory full of standard Dragon Quest items like medical herbs and a cypress stick. Then again in 168, where the opening segment is a brief 8-bit game sequence starring Tama. The rest of the story arc is one big Dragon Quest parody.

Epic Fail: Oh man, too many times to count the main characters have tried to avoid making problems in situations only to make it a lot worse. The most prominent example probably has to be the Yorozuya's every encounter with the Shogun, where everything they do goes wrong in the worst possible way. The Kintarou Arc, it's revealed alien parasite known as the "Planet Eater" Parasite x that possesses and destroy planets while leaving biting marks on it via possessing lifeforms. On its conquest to Earth 18 years ago, he arrogantly closes his eyes and randomly possesses a lifeform to destroy Earth... only to possess the dog that was near-death in mother's womb and stuck with the Old Man for 18 years before on the same deathbed as him much to his dismay. Its Good Counterpart, "Planet Pukers" known as Parasite Z, possess lifeforms and fight off X's hosts to save the planet while leaving its mark (which is actually vomit hence the name}. As they arrive to Earth, Z split up and possess the lifeforms to counter X with eyes half-open... all possessing cats much to their dismay.

Take That!
 Gintama (Manga) / int_b53077b3
comment
Take That!: The characters REALLY hate Yamcha (although it may be an Affectionate Parody, as the creator agreed with a fan letter that said "Namcha" is still a strong character, as he strives to do what's right even though he isn't as powerful as the others). For example in Episode 100 when Gintoki explains the JUMP system using Dragon Bozu characters: Episode 112 where Gintoki rants about when the next chapter of Hunger X Hunger is going to come out, obviously making fun of its indefinite hiatuses. When Gintama comes back in episode 253 (the start of Enchousen and the Kintama arc), and Gintoki is upset at how it begins, he says, "Last time I saw a first episode so bad, Gintama was back in six months!" In Episode 317 (beginning of Gintama.), Kagura and Shinpachi advertise the Odd Jobs. Kagura goes around asking if people are going to collect more Love Live! merchandise or sell off any Love Live! Sunshine!! items. Even worse is that Rie Kugimiya voices the mother of one of the Sunshine!! cast. What does the author do when the campaign against Ecchi appears? Give us an Unwanted Harem Arc of course! The epilogue takes a few potshots at epilogue endings in manga, with Catherine and Otose complaining about the main cast suddenly hooking up in the finale and fearing that they'll get paired with someone they barely know.

Bifauxnen: Mutsu, who's flat chested, and talks and dresses like a man. And there's Kyubei, who occasionally desires to be in touch with their femininity, but ultimately rejects being considered male or female.

Weaksauce Weakness: The Yato Clan is one of the strongest species in universe, yet rays of sunlight tend to not treat them kindly. Hosen dried up after being suddenly exposed to sun, since he had been living under the ground for many years. Kagura in comparison merely gets weaker and dizzy if being outside without an umbrella, so they're probably generally adaptive.

Double Standard: Abuse, Female on Male
 Gintama (Manga) / int_c0e3994b
comment
Double Standard: Abuse, Female on Male: Subverted AND played straight. While a huge chunk of the comedy is women beating the crap out of men, men are free to return the punches & fights as equals. Kamui has no problem with punching his little sister in the face at full force, because he knows she can take it & will return it. Likewise, Okita enjoys sparring with Kagura & Nobume & doesn't insult them by holding back. Gintoki is extremely harsh on his stalker, Sarutobi, but since she's a masochist, she enjoys it thoroughly. A woman will occasionally get accidentally punched or crushed with a heavy object.

Xanatos Gambit: Played for laughs of course since this is Gintama. The whole Popularity Poll Arc? All planned by YAMAZAKI!. He wasn't happy with his ranking so he started a war to get all the characters to reduce each other's ranking. Seeing as he wasn't the only one unhappy with his ranking, they almost did it without his help. The outcome of said war would help him either way.

Ass Shove: Poor Hattori. The cherry on the top is that he suffers of hemorrhoids. Adding to Kondo's often literal Butt-Monkey status, in the space of two episodes he gets a jackhammer and a pair of horns stuck down there. Doman Shirino, from the Onmyoji Arc, has been a HUGE victim of this trope in the past by Seimei. Tae at one point does it to both Shinpachi and Obi Hajime with a light- I mean beam saber. Kusanagi really wanted a scabbard and Gintoki's ass was conveniently nearby.

Tokyo Is the Center of the Universe
 Gintama (Manga) / int_c5594984
comment
Tokyo Is the Center of the Universe: Seriously, in a Japanese setting where almost all the foreigners (besides humans of non-Japanese backgrounds like the American Taka-tin) are aliens and a good chunk of the plot is based in Edo (which was Tokyo at the time), this is pretty inevitably invoked. Even so, the series still shows some landmark traits of this; Edo's an intergalactic port and it doesn't seem like the aliens bother with any other country, Edo is where some of the Joi War's fiercest fighters congregate, Edo is where the galaxy's most powerful villain learned how to be human again, if only for a short time, and just where might be the giant planetary energy reserve that's keeping him alive?

Self-Deprecation: The author's commentaries in the compiled volumes are pretty much nothing but this, like a "how to draw" column that highlights his inability to draw more than one incredibly ordinary face, or saying that the unique aesthetic of the comic comes from the fact that it's "really poorly drawn". He also complains about his editor at every opportunity and at one point described working on a deadline as "walking a tightrope made of toilet paper across the Grand Canyon, and there's a monkey that looks like my editor peeing on the toilet paper". The anime isn't better — they constantly talk about their poor rankings, lack of budget, and the production team. The entire Gintaman arc is nothing but this, as Gin himself unknowingly points out to the Gintaman manga's editor:

Spoiler Opening
 Gintama (Manga) / int_cd83fa5b
comment
Spoiler Opening: Gintama's just as guilty as any other shounen anime of spoiling or hinting at new characters and important developments in their openings and endings. Kyubei is the only one wearing a Sarashi at the chest (rather than at the waist like Kondo does) in the seventh ending ("Signal") while several of the guys are featured shirtless. This hints at Kyubei actually being biologically female rather than male, which is unknown to most of the characters and supposedly viewers until a few episodes after the ending is first used. Opening 18 (first opening of Gintama.) introduces a new character... who very much looks like Kagura, and the scene is followed by a distressed Kagura running. Ending 27 (first ending of Gintama.) then shows a family picture of this mysterious woman, Umibozu, and Kagura and Kamui as kids, which basically confirms she is Kagura's mother and hints that the family's background will be revealed. The captions shown during the preview of her meeting with Umibozu lampshades this.

Serial Escalation: This series attempts to find out just HOW FAR they can make parodies out of any series. Episode 150 takes this to the extremes though with the infamous Neon Genesis Evangelion episode 26 where they literally copied almost frame to frame with Shinji and Shinpachi. To drive the point home, Hasegawa is in the same position as where Gendo was and both have the same seiyuu.

In the Be Forever Yorozuya film, Gintoki is suddenly transported to five years into the future thanks to the Time Thief, and the world is on the verge of extinction (and he himself also died). Despite a considerably dramatic movie, tropes are still parodied, such as Gintoki freaking out over how much Shinpachi and Kagura have physically grown and changed and Okita becoming a Kenshin expy. After the climactic battle, the characters return to their own timelines and it's shown in the present day that the Yorozuya have reunited.

Mouth Full of Smokes
 Gintama (Manga) / int_d2ca1c6c
comment
Mouth Full of Smokes: Played for Laughs by Hijikata when he realizes the lottery ticket he got given matches the winning number. Incredibly nervous about this realisation, he excuses himself out by 1) stuffing all of his cigarettes into his mouth, 2) lighting them while saying he's just run out, and 3) making a run for it as he claims he's going to go buy more. (Note that he just bought cigarettes earlier that day from the place he got the ticket, too.)

Highly Visible Ninja
 Gintama (Manga) / int_d635e82c
comment
Highly Visible Ninja: Played straight with Sa-chan, who doesn't really bother hiding herself, and averted with Hattori who does his job properly such as hiding in the ceiling when helping a scammer "fulfill" wishes of his followers. Parodied in one chapter when Katsura enlists the Yorozuya (plus Sacchan) to save Elizabeth, and they have to become ninja to do so. Sacchan demands that everyone wear different, highly visible costumes because she can't tell them apart otherwise. Gin ends up in a white ninja outfit, Kagura in red, Katsura in yellow, and Shinpachi in a cow print. Their attempts to use ninja camouflage fail about as miserably as one would expect.

Balanced Harem: Parodied in the Scandal arc. Gintoki gets drunk and apparently has a one-night stand with Otae, Kyuubei, Sacchan, Tsukuyo, Otose, and Hasegawa. He proceeds to try and take responsibility by taking them all to live under the same roof as him, but without any of them knowing Gintoki is seeing the others. Hilarity Ensues when Gintoki tries to hide the girls from each other while living at the same apartment building and taking them all out on dates at the same time. The truth was the five women were in cahoots the entire time just to try and teach Gintoki a lesson so he would finally quit drinking. He did sleep with Hasegawa, though.

Unusually Uninteresting Sight
 Gintama (Manga) / int_d99a228f
comment
Unusually Uninteresting Sight: Gintoki aside in its introductory chapter/episode, nobody ever comments on how bizarre Katsura's friend Elizabeth looks; it resembling to be a cross between a Bedsheet Ghost and a penguin, plus it also seems to just be a costume, as its legs appear to be those of a man's on the odd occasion where they're visible. It's possibly justified by the fact that the world is filled with all the manner of aliens, but even by their standards, it's still extremely weird-looking. It turns out that it's actually a member of an entire race of Human Aliens who don the same costume, just with the addition of accessories so they can actually distinguish one another. Or not. That was actually just its substitute that fills in for it on Mondays. A story arc has Kondo transformed into a gorilla by the same curse that turned Gintoki and Katsura into cats. Again, nobody seems to really find anything very unusual about seeing him walking around in public, offering him food like they might any other stray animal.

Good Smoking, Evil Smoking: The good guys Hijikata, Hasegawa, Otose and Matsudaira smoke cigarettes, while antagonists Takasugi, Tsukuyo and Jirochou (although it's subverted with the latter two when they turn out to be good guys) each smoke a pipe (kiseru to be more specific). Averted with Terada Tatsugoro (Otose's husband who was a beloved policeman), who is shown to have owned and smoked from a pipe (which Jirochou now uses).

Ship Tease
 Gintama (Manga) / int_dcb9c541
comment
Gintoki and Tsukuyo (who explicitly has the crush on the former) have had ongoing Ship Tease since Tsukuyo's introduction, most prominently in the Red Spider Arc which heavily teases the pairing. It even had Gintoki carrying Tsukuyo in his arms after freeing her from Jiraia's web. Amplified by the Love Incense arc which follows Tsukuyo's crush being further fuelled by the titular incense and Gintoki (also affected) also taking a liking to her... and his "harem".

comment
Chekhov's Gunman: Remember minor character Ana Ketsuno being married (who would) WAAAAAAAY back then? 150+ chapters later, not only does she gain an important role in the Onmyoji arc, her marriage becomes a major plot point in the arc. Kagura befriends Princess Soyo, the Shogun's little sister, in chapter 23, from which point onwards she doesn't really appear again until 364 chapters later in the Courtesan of a Nation arc, where Soyo returns with their friendship being brought up again. It's what allows the Yorozuya and Tsukuyo to enter the Shogun's castle. Prince Ba- Hata suddenly disappears after many episodes in, only to reappear again in the Silver Soul arc. He is instrumental in Elizabeth regaining her... his memories as prince Dragonia, which allows the humans to gain a powerful ally against the Altana Liberation Army.

You Wanna Get Sued?: Due to the sheer amount of references the show gets away with, Gin or some other cast members will worry about one of the companies getting pissed off and suing. In one case, during the Renho arc, Shinpachi worried about getting away with the blatant Gundam robots the enemy was building, only for Gintoki to respond that it's okay because both Gundam and Gintama's animes are produced by Sunrise.

Innocuously Important Episode: Remember episode 13 where the Yorozuya is tasked to find a girl who ran away from home? Turns out she got addicted to a drug made by the Harusame, one of the largest space pirates in the galay. Gintoki and Katsura raid the base in order to save Shinpatchi and Kagura and in the process gives them a bad reputation against the group. The next episode reveals the Bafuku's involvement with the Harusame and how the pirates have the earth and Kabukicho in their sights thanks to the fallout. Their actions also allows Takasugi to set up a deal with them, and later establish an alliance with Kamui and the Bafuku. This also allow some villains connected to them to learn who they are in the future arcs, such as Hosen, the Tendoshuu, and the Naraku.

Historical In-Joke: Tons - most of the main characters are based on real people, and thus a lot of the humour comes from what alleged heroes are generally like when they're not actively being heroic. Oh, and the thing about firing a laser cannon at the capital? Happened in real life, albeit with a regular cannon. Even the customer of the Week is often a comedic version of a historical figure.

Art Evolution: The anime shows a great improvement ever since its start. If the first episodes looked good enough in terms of animation and art by the time it was being aired in late 2000s, with the show's growing popularity and its later transition to an HD format, the animation of the later seasons improves a lot in quality and fluidity. The manga itself, as well. Compare the 1st volume cover◊ with the 43rd volume cover◊, that's quite a transition in only six years for Sorachi, who rants from time to time that he doesn't draw well.

The "Fun" in "Funeral": Episode 231 has the Yorozuya and the main Shinsegumi trio attending a funeral for the owner of a restaurant Gintoki and Hijikata were regulars at, which the foreword states will be a solemn, dignified affair. It goes well up until Kagura gets involved, then takes a nosedive from there after she completely messes up at paying her respects properly, which provokes the owner's ghost into trying to ensure the processions go smoothly by force. It ends up having the opposite effect due to how horrified Gintoki and Hijikata are of him (made worse by the fact that only they can see him), which leads to them making even more mistakes, wrecking his coffin and launching his corpse into a delivery truck among other things. A later story arc has everyone attending a funeral for a not-quite dead Kagura, which after a series of mishaps, leads to them all thinking that the proper way to pay their respects is to crush the coffin with a giant boulder...

There is Katsura's Catchphrase which is, "It's not Zura, it's Katsura." note In Japanese: "Zura ja nai, Katsura da." Turned out Gintoki was the one who named his as such as kids, and only because he was too lazy to add the "ka". The name's been stuck ever since, with many other people accidentally or intentionally using the nickname to address him and Gintoki seemingly forgotten Zura isn't his actual name.

Purely Aesthetic Era: In this series, Anachronism Stew is very much in play, making the use of technology, pop culture and whatnot in the supposedly Meiji era pretty hilarious and bizarre. It gets to a point where you start to wonder how Japan will ever make it to Modern history as we know it, considering the country basically got a head start against everybody else in the world. The Silver Soul arc answers that little problem by Gengai using a device against the invading ships that renders all tech, including all the great advances made on Earth, permanently useless... until the epilogue reveals Japan is doing just fine readjusting their tech after the war, even to the point of investing in (and bankrupting themselves) with cryptocurrency.

No Ending: The ending of Part 2 of the "Silver Soul" anime adaptation invokes and lampshades this to absurd No Fourth Wall levels. It's made more ridiculous since it's in the middle of the climactic final arc of the series, and interrupting an important scene just to announce how short on time they are naturally pisses off the characters. Shinpachi and Gintoki have just reunited after having separated for two years, and Shinpachi is making a dramatic speech to the men targeting Gintoki... then Gintoki gives the shooting staff the okay to stop filming, and informs the confused characters (and the audience) how troubled the Gintama anime production has been ever since Gintama゜ began (thanks to Sorachi delaying the ending) and that the plan to wrap up the series in this supposed anime finale failed. The episode and season ends with Sorachi's letter, apologising and thanking the viewers, leaving the final arc unresolved and the situation ambiguous as to when (or if) the rest of the manga will be adapted.

Biting-the-Hand Humor: Everything about JUMP, especially the immaturity of its comics, is constantly mocked. Gin is treated as a loser for reading it, all glimpses we see of comics within it are scribble-quality, and any member of the Shinsengumi who reads it must commit seppuku to atone. The anime adds many snipes at Sunrise (and in the third season, to BNP) to no one's surprise.

Hilariously used in the Baragaki Arc, when Tetsunosuke tries to be Pretty Fly for a White Guy and raps at random times. This includes a rap battle against Gintoki.

Big Damn Heroes: Gintoki gets to do this a lot (must be in the contract for a Shonen series' main protagonist). A candidate for his best one so far? Stabbing Jiraiya's hand while suddenly showing up from behind a tied-up Tsukuyo, then swatting him away. Nearly everyone gets a scene at the start of the final arc, from recurring characters to one shot characters that disappeared after their introductions.

Crash-Into Hello: Gintoki and Shinpachi first meet Kagura when they run her over with their scooter just as she's running away from the criminal gang that had been using her. Thankfully, as a Yato, Kagura is tough enough to recover from that in a few minutes.

After episode 306, a particularly heart-wrenching episode, Ginpachi-sensei comments on the fact that doing the quirky Fourth-Wall Mail Slot is very inappropriate, but they're doing it anyway. And then turn a heartfelt flashback into a poop joke.

Evil Diva: Galaxy Kingdom Bitches 48. Not only the evil counterparts to sweet (if vulgar) Otsu, they represent every possible critisism of the idol industry: skimpy clothes, cherrypicking all the best singers, crushing less popular or grassroots acts, theming themselves around sex, doing lewd acts with the fans to get them to buy more tickets, being snide, power hungry witches behind the scenes, and hiring as many undesireable girls as possible in order to make the lead singer shine while lying to the others about it. Granted, they were all succubus-like aliens brainwashing their fans, but still.

Human Aliens: Many of the Amanto could easily pass off as humans due to their looks, such as the the Yato Clan. However, the Yato have some features that give away their real identity — they are weak against the sunlight, they are incredibly strong, and they can heal from any kind of wounds in a matter of hours.

Give Me Back My Wallet: It's a bad idea to steal Gintoki's wallet, and not just because it's empty, as Seita discovers when he too gets pick-pocketed. It ends up kick-starting the very serious Yoshiwara Arc.

comment
Shoo Out the Clowns: Throughout the gag episodes, even the main characters seem to have the default reaction to flee before danger, leaving their comrades behind (often followed by a Taking You with Me moment). However, when there's a serious arc going on, that behaviour is forgotten and they strive to protect one another in battle.

Series Fauxnale: Gintoki lampshades the second movie's ending in the opening for the third season. Because Be Forever Yorozuya - released between the second and third seasons - sold enough DVDs of the series to warrant another season in spite of the conclusion of the film, Gintoki apologizes in a press conference during the opening of the third season, citing his wonder that the DVDs had sold so well. In retrospect, the Silver Soul arc is this. While it wraps up much of the plot and brings back everyone for a grand and epic final battle, nothing would be truly resolved until the Clean Up arc. Chapter 698 of the manga takes it Up to Eleven. Everyone is Back for the Finale, the Final Boss is clearly set, they even spent the previous chapter counting down to the end... Only to reveal that Gintama will continue to be published in Jump Giga.

Running Gag
 Gintama (Manga) / int_f9f2c33

Running Gag: Plenty of frequent gags. There tends to be at least one per character. Gintoki trying to bribe people with 300 yen. There is also mistaking his name for Kintoki, mostly by Sakamoto. Katsura calling Kagura "leader", from the curry ninja episode. Because leaders wear red. Katsura's catchphrase, "I'm not Zura, I'm Katsura!" Shinpachi's apparent existence being only his glasses. Hijikata's love of mayonaise. Kondo's a gorilla. And for that matter, Tae being a gorilla. Yamazaki's anpan craze ("ANPAN! ANPAN! ANPAN!"). Characters panicking and looking for a Time Machine after running over someone.

Brick Joke: War-san and Ner-san in the first movie. They are first mentioned at the beginning where Kagura wonders if the Warner Bros are actual brothers - then they appear again right at the end when the entire cast (including those who didn't get to appear) are fighting over screentime, baffled that Gintama isn't as cool as they thought it'd be. In episode 202, Kondo claims that eating Otae's omelette will allow him to forget everything bad that's happened. This is a call back to the Amnesia Arc a 150+ episodes ago where the exact thing happened to Kondo. It comes back again in episode 289, where it's shown that Otae's omelette has once again claimed another victim.
