* PerformerGuise: There is an episode where Jin infiltrates a Yakuza-run brothel by disguising himself as a surprisingly convincing geisha carrying a biwa (a traditional Japanese instrument similar to a guitar). When asked to play a song on it, he pulls his katana from the neck, and reveals that he is actually a samurai. He also happened to have smoke bombs hidden in the body of the instrument.

A UsefulNotes/PlayStation2 game, ''Samurai Champloo: Sidetracked'' was released after the show aired. It was developed by ''Creator/Suda51'''s Grasshopper Manufacture, written and directed by Suda himself, and had a plot mostly unrelated to the events of the show outside of characters and mood.

* {{Bowdlerise}}: The original Creator/AdultSwim broadcast was edited to remove blood and nudity (especially in episode five, where the ukiyo-e paintings were edited to have nipples removed and the ones that depicted Japanese women getting raped were edited), and had swear words bleeped out with a record scratch effect (which most viewers claimed was a creative way of doing it, as it fit with the show's hip-hop aesthetic and wasn't as jarring as bleeping or muting, along with being more cost-effective than having the dialogue re-written to be less offensive and getting the voice actors in to record the new lines). This was back in 2006, and now that Creator/{{Toonami}} is back and airing shows that are much worse in terms of blood and cursing (still edited, mind you, but now able to get away with much more and nudity/sexual content is still a problem in some places). For the show's run on Toonami, it will be aired uncut (or, at the very least, with as little editing as possible).

* BreadEggsMilkSquick: In "Elegy of Entrapment, Verse 2", when Fuu and Jin sense that Sara is being manipulated, Mugen responds with "Take your pick. We've dined and dashed, snuck through a checkpoint, and, oh yeah, killed people."

* MonochromePast: Shōryū's backstory in "Lethal Lunacy" is definitely this, well-presented with a black-and-white 1930s film style.

* DoubleEntendre: A conversation during Isaac Kitching's (a.k.a., the guy from Holland's) last scenes goes a little something like this. Normally, it wouldn't sound so bad. However, if you [[StraightGay remember why Isaac came to Japan in the first place]], it takes on a whole new meaning:
--> '''Isaac''': Maybe one day, I will be able to return to this country, when the people are not so tight-assed!\\
'''Mugen''': As if anyone's ass is safe with you around!

* AnimalAthleteLoophole: In a baseball game against the {{Eagleland}} Navy, ninja Kagemaru is a little shorthanded. Even after conscripting Mugen, Jin and Fuu, he needs five more players. So he gets a really old man (who dies in his first at-bat), Fuu's pet flying squirrel Momo, and a dog. When one of the American sailors objects, the umpire consults a rulebook, and rules that "I can't find anything about dogs in the rulebook. He's good."[[note]]The American team was led by Alexander Joy Cartwright and his translator, Abner Doubleday. The former is the likely inventor of baseball, and the latter is its inventor in a widespread myth.[[/note]]

''Samurai Champloo'' is an {{anime}} series created by ''Anime/CowboyBebop'''s Creator/ShinichiroWatanabe and produced by Creator/{{Manglobe}}, their first series. The show is set in a SchizoTech version of Edo period Japan, featuring elements of action, adventure and comedy blended with an anachronistic, predominantly hip-hop soundtrack. The animation is often ''extremely'' dynamic, with a focus on highly choreographed action sequences.

The show matches traditional Japanese culture to HipHop music with a stylized form of samurai swordplay known as chambara, much in the same way ''Cowboy Bebop'' married ScienceFiction to {{blues}} and Jeet Kun Do. ''Champloo'''s score features hip-hop beats by Japanese hip-hop artists such as the late Music/{{Nujabes}}, Force of Nature, Tsutchie, and Fat Jon, among others. It also features many traditional Japanese songs, accompanied by shamisen music.
