** For most of the series, Kikuchiyo comes across as a loudmouth braggart who only travels with the Samurai because they don't really care enough to drive him away (plus he proves useful to the journey from time to time). It's when [[spoiler:he stands up for the villagers who tried to betray them]] that Kanbei finally accepts him as one of them.

* AdaptationExpansion: While the first two thirds of the series more less follows the plot of the film - albeit with a few alterations - the last third introduces the plot of [[spoiler: Ukyo becoming the new Emperor and waging war on everybody]] to up the stakes even further.

* MythologyGag: One episode has Kikuchiyo carrying Shino over his shoulder into the village, more or less the same way Chico in ''Film/TheMagnificentSeven'' did with Petra (Chico being a CompositeCharacter of the original Katsushiro and Kikuchiyo, and Petra being an {{Expy}} of Shino.)

* MadeOfExplodium: Not only do robots immediately explode when cut in half, the explosion begins at a point ''between the two halves'', where there isn't actually any robot left. [[FanWank Perhaps it's volatile gas igniting from the sparks of the sword's passage?]]

** Manzo as well. Kamatari Fujiwara was no oil painting, but this Manzo manages to be even ''more'' unattractive.



** Could also count for the title 7. [[spoiler: In the beginning of the series, guns were still a major threat and only Gorobei was fast enough to deflect or dodge bullets casually. In the final assault on the Capital, once the remaining Samurai have resolved themselves to a SuicideAttack... Kanbei, Kyuzo and even Kikuchyo are swatting away hails of projectiles straight up Jedi style.]]

* AdaptationalAttractiveness: Kanbei, Shichiroji, Gorobei, Heihachi and Kyuzo are much more conventionally attractive than they are in the source material (although you could argue that Yoshio Inaba and Minoru Chiaki had a kind of appeal to them.) Averted with Katsushiro, who was already a pretty boy, and inverted with Kikuchiyo, who was changed from a ruggedly handsome man to a great hulking cyborg whose face you never even see.
