* SpiritualSuccessor: Of ''Cowboy Bebop''. Created by much of the same production team, stylistically the shows aren't too far removed. The fluid animation, episodic nature, the DarkAndTroubledPast of each character and the way the music is integrated into the story makes these shows practically siblings. Casting Creator/SteveBlum as Mugen in the English version helps even more.

Added DiffLines:

* IconicItem: All three of the characters have signature weapons that they carry with them from start to finish in the series. Although Fuu is the only one to never once use her little pink blade for anything other than carrying her dangly charms.

Added DiffLines:

* 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."

Added DiffLines:

* 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!
