Added DiffLines:

* BittersweetEnding: By the end, the bad guys are defeated and Kagero experienced a few moments of happiness. But she is still dead along with an entire village and many others. Jubei is no better off then at the start by still being an outlaw and not a single coin richer.

* BattleAmongstTheFlames: The climactic duel takes place inside a burning treasure ship.
** ConvectionSchmonvection: The fire is hot enough to melt gold. Gold's melting point is over one thousand degrees Celsius, yet the combatants fight without discomfort or having their clothes burst into flames.



* CantHaveSexEver: Kagero's body absorbs poisons instead of processing them. It makes her ideal for her job, and [[spoiler:protects her from the bite of one of Benisato's snakes]], but the numerous toxins have made her bodily fluids so poisonous that even kissing someone else would be deadly. [[spoiler:Tessai finds out the hard way.]]
* CarryingTheAntidote: This trope is subverted; Jubei ''thinks'' Dakuan is doing this, so he attempts to [[CuttingTheKnot Cut The Knot]] by hitting Dakuan with the poison too, but Dakuan had already thrown away the poisoned shuriken and replaced it with an ordinary one.

** In a flashback, we see that when Shinjuro's clan [[YouHaveOutlivedYourUsefulness has outlived its usefulness]] Genma played a BatmanGambit on them ordering to kill Jubei. Jubei lampshades this while begging for ''their'' lives. [[LastStand They don't hear him, attack him and end all dead]].

* BadGuysDoTheDirtyWork: Yurimaru and Zakuro's jealousies end up saving the heroes a lot of trouble.


Added DiffLines:

* DividedWeFall: This is in play among the bad guys. Yurimaru is upset over the fact that Benisato is sleeping with Genma, so when Kagero gets the drop on Benisato he takes the chance to [[YouHaveFailedMe kill her for her failure]], despite the fact that she still could have been a major threat to Jubei at least with minimal effort. Later when Zakuro is upset with the way Yurimaru has coldly rebuffed her, she uses one of her {{Action Bomb}}s with the intent of blowing both him and Jubei up. Yurimaru had been on the edge of torturing and electrocuting Jubei to death, but the distraction lets Jubei get away and only results in Yurimaru's death. The infighting among these villains saved the good guys a lot of trouble.

* [[FiveBadBand Eight Bad Band]]: The Eight Devils of Kimon:
** BigBad: Genma, leader of the Eight Devils.
** TheDragon: Yurimaru, as Genma's direct subordinate.
** [[TheEvilGenius The Evil Geniuses]]: Mushizo, who uses his wasps both as a weapon and as a scouting tool, and Shijima, who uses techniques such as [[CastingAShadow shadow teleportation]], [[MesACrowd illusionary dopplegangers]], [[PeoplePuppets mind control]], and lures his prey into traps with multi-layered plans.
** [[TheBrute The Brutes]]: Tessai is a typical example with his hulking frame and barbaric behavior. Zakuro is not a typical example appearance wise, but her preference for eschewing subtlety and simply blowing up everything around her qualifies her for this as well as being a general DarkActionGirl.
** TheDarkChick: Benisato, with her habits for seduction and using her snakes to fight for her.
** SixthRanger[=/=]NobleTopEnforcer: Utsutsu Mujuro, in a sense--while he's not TheDragon, nor any more influential than the others, his formidable swordsmanship makes him the only one besides Genma to fight Jubei head-on and his noble streak leads him to challenge Jubei in an honorable duel.
