* {{Crowning Moment of Awesome}}: As it is an Creator/{{Akira Kurosawa}} film, several are to be expected.
** Kurogane magnificently one ups Lady Kaede with a thinly veiled {{The Reason You Suck Speech}}.
** Saburo's {{Calling the Old Man Out}} moment during the beginning. Particularly when he subverts {{The Sons and The Spears}} trope to emphasize the fallibility of Hidetora's plan.
** [[spoiler: Kurogane pulls off his second {{Moment of Awesome}} when he [[EvenEvilHasStandards slays Lady Kaede]] after finding out she successfully had [[ThePollyanna Lady Sué]] assassinated.]]
