* AgentPeacock: The eponymous Medicine Seller himself. He crossdresses in an obi, paints his nails, and speaks with a traditionally feminine politeness. That doesn't stop him from [[BadAss absolutely]] [[DidYouJustPunchOutCthulhu demolishing]] [[HorrifyingTheHorror mononoke]].

* {{Badass}}: The Medicine Seller, oh so very much. How else can we describe a man who not only confronts mononoke--with a calm smirk, no less--but has also slayed them for [[spoiler: centuries?]]



* DidYouJustPunchOutCthulhu: The [[BadAss Medicine Seller]] does this in every arc. Despite being [[AmbiguouslyHuman human]], he's somehow able to kill mononoke. Hell, he not only kills them, but by his own [[BadassBoast admission]], he [[HorrifyingTheHorror absolutely terrifies them]]!!

* ShownTheirWork: The Nue arc delves deeply into the extremely antiquated and complex traditions surrounding Japanese incense, and is more or less 100% accurate. The incense parlor games portrayed by the episode actually existed, with more or less the exact rules portrayed in the show. The Rannanatai and the Todai-ji also have basis in reality, albeit with cause and effect reversed: [[spoiler: Todai-ji is, in real life, the place where the true Rannanatai, actually called Ranajyatai, is stored. The Ranajyatai was a single seemingly inexhaustibly aromatic log that only ever graced the parlors of emperors and generals due to its value. It was used for centuries in incense ceremonies and never ran out of fragrance. InUniverse, it was the reason those people became emperors and generals in the first place.]]

* AmbiguouslyHuman[=/=]NotQuiteHuman: While the Medicine Man claims to be human, his FacialMarkings, PointyEars, CuteLittleFangs, demonic sword, supernatural powers, long lifespan and alter-ego suggest otherwise.

* WholesomeCrossdresser: The Medicine Seller wears an obi, traditional women's wear, and paints his nails. Doesn't stop him from being any less Badass though.

Added DiffLines:

** Kayo (and later, Chiyo), too. She also dresses in a rather bright and lavish way for a servant, and her behaviour and overall style are quite modern and animesque compared to other characters. It's possible her look is a play on modern teenagers and fashion subcultures such as gyaru, which stereotypically features a tan, but there's no indication of where she's from or any comment on her looks.
** The innkeeper and her assistant from the Zashiki-warashi arc are also dark-skinned; it can be assumed it's meant to be a sign of age in the innkeeper, but her assistant's appearance has no apparent explanation.
