* BarrierMaiden: Maya, being the descendant of the original maiden's bloodline, can summon a magical barrier by praying the Gods of Asuka, allowing her to suppress the power of the Sword. [[spoiler: This ends up being mildly effective, in that while the Sword is too powerful to be stopped by the barrier, her prayers still weaken Saga, allowing Luffy to clobber him.]]



* BrainwashedAndCrazy: Saga and anyone afflicted by the Sword.

to:

* BrainwashedAndCrazy: Saga and anyone afflicted by the Sword. Mostly seen with the Marines. The only one who's trying to fight back the influence is Toma.
* BrickJoke: Near the beginning, the Merry is propelled in the air and land on a hippo-rhino hybrid, causing him to spit a fish that was choking him and making him fell in love with the ship. Much later, as the Strawhats leave Asuka Island, the very same hippo-rhino appears, trying to court the Going Merry.



* CurbStompBattle: [[spoiler: All of Saga's servants are defeated in a jiff. Saga himself doesn't fare much better against Luffy.]]
** [[spoiler: Admittedly it was a ClippedWingAngel form, but quickly gains back his momentum once he goes into the BishonenLine and regains his original form while being boosted significantly]].

* OneWingedAngel: [[spoiler: Saga. First he gets his arm back and turns into a hulking brute with crazy eyes [[ClippedWingAngel which loses easily to Luffy]]. Then, the sword merge with him, making him expressionless and deadlier.]]
* PlayingWithFire: Saga, thanks to the Sword.

to:

* FaceHeelTurn: Seemingly Zoro, before his real motives are revealed.
* FamilyUnfriendlyViolence: When Saga is possessed by the Sword in the beginning he doesn't simply cut down the pirates attacking him and Maya, he ''[[HalfTheManHeUsedToBe literally bisects them]]''.
* FatBastard: Boo Kong, so fat that he's actually spherical and can bounce around like a ball, crushing people and buildings under his own weight.
* {{Foreshadowing}}: Early on, Saga himself explains that nor he nor his men can get too close to the Sacred Orbs. Later Nami takes advantage of this detail to defeat a whole group of possessed Marines by keeping them at bay with the Orb.
* GuestStarPartyMember: Lacos, one of the villagers, joins Sanji as he goes to put the Orb in its tower. He doesn't do much though, except fighting mooks.
* MacGuffin: The Three Sacred Orbs that are necessary to seal the power of the Seven Star Sword. Oddly, Saga's henchmen can't touch them, and not even get close to them, forcing Saga to ask for Zoro's help.
* TheMagicGoesAway: [[spoiler: In the end, both the Sword and the Orbs are gone for good.]]
* OneHandedZweihander: Invoked, when Luffy, upon seeing the Seven Star Sword hanging from Saga's back, asks him if he can really use such a long sword with only one hand. He can, btw.
* OneWingedAngel: [[spoiler: Saga. First he gets his arm back and turns into a hulking brute with crazy eyes whose powers, however, [[ClippedWingAngel which loses easily to Luffy]].are hindered by Maya's prayers.]]. Then, the sword merge with him, making him expressionless and deadlier.]]
* PlayingWithFire: Saga, thanks to the Sword. It looks like some sort of wisp though.
** ShapingYourAttacks: One of them takes the form of a serpent made of cold flames that bites the victim.


Added DiffLines:

* RedEyesTakeWarning: All those under the influence of the Sword sports these.
* RunningGag: Maya's Grandmother seems very short, but when she's surpised she suddenly springs up to great height, freaking everyone out.

* VoiceOfTheLegion: [[spoiler: Saga, under the influence of the Sword.]]
