''Wicked City'' (妖獣都市 Yōjū Toshi) is an attack on the senses. It started as a series of horror novels written by Creator/HideyukiKikuchi. The first of said novels was adapted into an anime movie by Creator/YoshiakiKawajiri (''Anime/NinjaScroll'', ''Anime/CyberCityOedo808'') in TheEighties, and later into a live-action movie. Being the better-known part of the franchise, the tropes here will be taken mostly from the anime, so please add those from the movie and novels!

* HandCannon: Taki's primary weapon, a revolver that's average sized but with an ridiculously large modification from what can be seen ,it described as a large compensator. (for all the good it does) The resulting force from every shot in the entire film throws him into walls, and unlike some anime the shots always have devastating results. Judging from one shot of him reloading it, it seems to be loaded with .454 Casull which might explain the recoil and damage.

* AmbiguouslyHuman: In the Spanish dub, Mayart is described as an expert in paranormal affairs and a famed prophet, but otherwise human. However, his small physique, pointy ears and horn-like head protrusions, along with his powers, point to a dark world citizen just like Makie and the terrorists. This is not ambiguous at all in the original movie, where Mayart is explicitly stated to be a 200-year old psychic from the dark world.

* DirtyOldMan: Giuseppe, to an extreme and almost comical degree. His insistence in going partying to soaplands and clubs in midst of their mission is a RunningGag.
