Due to a lack of proper localization, a common problem for Ushio and Tora fans is determining the correct spelling of names found in the series. Multiple scanlation groups, fansubbers, and even professional anime companies often translate these names based on assumption or other reference material.

For the purposes of this wiki, the articles use a naming convention that takes into account any official romanization by Kazuhiro Fujita and the spellings will use short vowels for names that have macrons (Tokyo, Tono, Hyo, Kyora, etc.).

If the manga is ever officially localized in America, the names on this wiki may change to reflect its spellings.

The list below contains various alternatives of names commonly found in translations and other sources.
