* NotSoDifferent: Jin and Mugen, who are both morally ambiguous drifters. Although at first glance, Jin appears to be the [[TheHero Standard Good Guy]] and Mugen appears to be the TokenEvilTeammate. The series quickly establishes that Jin is also cold, irritable, and arrogant (especially in regards to Mugen) despite his noble bearing and fine words, while by the second episode, Mugen is already showing some heroic tendencies and concern for Fuu despite his claims of being a loner and hating everyone. Additionally, both Mugen and Jin (to some extent) enjoy the company of prostitutes, both love to fight and never back down from a challenge, ans both become better people as a result of Fuu's quest.

* FlashStep: Kariya, and briefly Jin. In both cases they're less "almost teleporting" and more "[[ComicBook/{{X-Men}} Kitty Pride-ing]]".

* DoesThisRemindYouOfAnything: In his introductory episode, there are a couple of scenes [[InnocentInnuendo where it looks/sounds like Manzo the Saw is masturbating]], but it turns out to be something innocent (i.e. exercising with his unique weapon). This is probably because he's a parody of [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hanzo_the_razor Hanzo the Razor]], who engaged in some...unique sexual practices.

* DamselInDistress: Fuu. Given how often she gets in trouble (often being BoundAndGagged) she comes off as rather sensible for hiring two capable body guards. This is TruthInTelevision. In Edo period Japan, it was not only incredibly dangerous, but actually illegal for a teenage girl to travel without some sort of legal guardian like Fuu does. She would be stopped and questioned by law enforcement on sight. Unless brothel "recruiters" got her first (like one of the episodes shows).

* AccidentalAthlete

* AccidentalAthleteAccidentalAthlete: Mugen is drafted into playing baseball against the {{Eagleland}} navy team after the Japanese organizer sees how fast he can run from the restaurant he failed to pay at, in addition to the fact that he can throw a baseball hard enough to knock down a wooden tower about a mile away.

Added DiffLines:

* WilliamTelling: Our three adventurers are (as usual) broke, so raise money with a demonstration of their swordplay. Mugen and Jin are blindfolded and have to cut two fruits balanced one-on-top-of-the-other upon a nervous Fuu's head. It doesn't help that Mugen and Jin are visibly hung-over from last night's debauchery.
