* RecklessGunUsage: Byakuran fires [[spoiler: a 16th-century matchlock rifle at Nanashi, who is *right next to* Kotaro, who they need to sacrifice to get the immortality pill. A gun that primitive could very easily have accidentally killed Kotaro and rendered the bad guys' quest entirely fruitless.]]

%%* RainOfArrows* RainOfArrows: The Japanese soldiers fire dozens of arrows at a time, at first on fire (to burn down the wooden defences), then unlit (to kill the NighInvulnerable Chinese soldiers).

* ShownTheirWork: A Katana isn't meant to be used to hit other blades since they're actually fragile, doing this destroys Nanashi's sword in the final fight as it snaps in half and is shown to be serious chipped besides that.

* KatanasAreJustBetter: Averted; only one main character uses an actual katana, and the weapon itself isn't that much better. Also a case of ShownTheirWork as a Katana isn't meant to be used to hit other blades, doing this destroys Nanashi's sword in the final fight as it snaps in half and is shown to be serious chipped.

* ImplausibleHairColor:
** Nanashi is red-haired in an anime without AnimeHair. This can happen even among native Japanese, but is ''extremely'' rare. This makes his origin very ambigious, mostly because with his hair dyed black, he can pass as a local.
** Averted with Luo-Lang, who is quickly revealed as a white guy, hence the blond hair. What makes him stand out is his full cultural naturalisation as a Chinese.

** Arguably the one who is the least CombatPragmatist would have to be Luo-Lang. But when you're a foot taller than everyone else, and hopping around like Yoda on crack, you don't really HAVE to fight dirty. The dirtiest he gets is using a corpse as a shield to rush a bunch of archers.

[[spoiler: He notably betrays his commander Byakuran when Byakuran wanted to shoot No-Name while blinded and trying to climb up a platform, because he thought it wouldn't be sporting.]]

* BloodKnight: Luo-Lang.

to:

* BloodKnight: Luo-Lang.Luo-Lang loves the thrill of the fight and lives for the moment where he can clash swords with a WorthyOpponent. He pointedly doesn't take the drugs his comrades do because he does not shy away from pain.

* EvenEvilHasStandards: Lord Byakuran is surprised when [[spoiler:Itadori kills his own master after Byakuran tried to use him as a hostage]]. Byakuran values loyalty to one's own lord fairly high and such a display angers him.
