* MrFanservice: He's got crowds sighing over his prettyboy looks in canon, wears a {{Stripperific}} outfit which includes pairing a crop top with strappy low rise hakama that have ever-deepening hip windows and have been cut from MagicSkirt cloth, and he eventually gets an [[AlwaysIdenticalTwins identical twin]] in the sequel, mostly so the author can draw them [[WhipItGood whipping]] each other's [[ClothingDamage clothes open]] when they face off in the tournament arc and a bunch of {{Twincest}}y splash pages. To the [[TeasingCreator author's apparent surprise]], he was voted the most popular character when the magazine it ran in polled its readership.

* CharacterDevelopment: In the start of the series he was aloof, uncaring, aggressive, and hated the thought of working under a lord/being a Sanada's Brave, although a lot of this was based in a cynical attempt at self-protection. By the end, while not necessarily nice, he's far more gentle and calm, and openly admits to liking being a Brave. Kakei even [[LampshadeHanging lampshades it]] when they were drinking in Jinpachi's ship, noting that he has become more gentle.

* CoatCape: Yukimura tends to wear his cloak in this way. It goes with his cool but elusive personality and Zhuge Lang-like strategems.
* CombatHandFan: When challenged to a sword dance, he opts to use his fan instead.
* CrouchingMoronHiddenBadass: He cultivates this image carefully. He never really fights in the series, but when Masamune forces him to duel for a "show", Masamune uses a real katana while the only "weapon" Yukimura takes is his fan. He holds his own quite easily, even blocking one strike with his sandals, but plays up his clumsiness until the point Date tries to land a blow and he catches the carpet with his foot, falls flat on his back and uses the other to kick the sword of Date's hand and send it flying within a hair's breadth of Tokugawa. He then plays it off as bumbling accident, though Tokugawa got the message loud and clear.

* EvenTheGuysWantHim: He manages to draw in the largely male RagtagBunchOfMisfits that is the Braves with no promises of money or land or tangible gain, just the charm that comes with his mysterious but clearly genius nature.

* DarkAndTroubledPast: [[spoiler:She was a Russian little girl who got stuck in Japan, seeing her parents dead in the middle of snowstorm.

* DCupDistress: When Isanami [[ACupAngst complains that her chest is small]], Anastasia says that, for a kunoichi, being flat-chested was much more comfortable, but Isanami says that she should be proud of her size.

* BrilliantButLazy: He gets the Braves to do all the heavy lifting for him in private and public matters, but his brilliance is unquestionable.
* CoatCape: Yukimura tends to wear his cloak in this way. It goes with his cool but elusive personality and Zhuge Lang-like strategems.

Even Jinpachi, who hates being chained to anything, talks about how compelling he is because he is so hard-to-read.
* FoolishSiblingResponsibleSibling: He is the foolish sibling to Nobuyuki's responsible one, although he takes his responsibility to Ueda quite seriously.
* GeniusSlob: Rokuro's constantly on his case for dressing slovenly, not brushing his hair,
and hard-to-read nature.generally not conducting himself as a samurai ought to.



* HandsomeLech: He's always flirting with Ana and sneaking out to brothels and talking about how much he likes women, but he's not very successful as all of his efforts are foiled by Rokuro's interference.



* MessyHair: His is naturally wild. One {{Doujinshi}} by the author features Rokuro struggling to comb his hair out for the matches at the same time Komatsu does their brothers' hair, with the latter group snarking about Yukimura's untameable locks.
* MysteriousEmployer: Nearly all the Braves will cop to not knowing what goes on in his head, and he's very good at recruiting people without promising them anything in return, and he gets the Braves to move for him in matters where he needs to sit back.




to:

* SmartPeoplePlayChess: Rokuro challenges him to a game of shogi, trying to make a point. While that game ends rather abruptly with Yukimura shaking the gameboard and dislodging the pieces to make a counterpoint, Yukimura continues to use shogi metaphors to describe his plans for Ueda and the Braves, showing off his cleverness.
* TheStrategist: He's always considering the long-term future of Ueda and trying to manipulate things to ensure its peace and safety.
* WarriorPoet: Of all the samurai lords in the story, he has the biggest philosophical streak and spends a lot of his non-ObfuscatingStupidity time ruminating on war, power, morality and fate.



--> '''Pirate''': Here, why not have some more, [[{{bishonen}} beauty]]!?
--> '''Rokuro''': ''Why am I the only one with a bowl?''...Thanks...
--> '''Saizo''': (looks on) ''Rokuro sure is popular...''
* EveryoneCallsHimBarkeep: He gets this the most often out of the cast. Kamanosuke calls him "page", Hanzo calls him "the handsome page", the farmer in Kudoyama calls him "the beautiful lad" and the pirates just call him "beauty." It seems to come down to [[BattleButler one]] of [[{{Bishonen}} two]] factors.



* IngestingKnowledge: He can store information and memories by sucking them into his magic eye.



* {{Tsundere}}: It runs in the family. He's sharp-tongued and quick-tempered, but occasionally Yukimura catches him offguard with unexpected praise, which gives rise to brief moments of deredere.



* CrazyJealousGuy: He is extremely possessive over Saizo and picks fights with Isanami over their respective closeness to him.



* NoShirtLongJacket: His muscles are on constant display with this look.



* LargeHam: He's always spoiling for war, attempting to run away to be at the centre of action himself and is generally larger than life.

[[quoteright:200:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/goe1.jpg]]

* AlasPoorVillain: He's one of the more sympathetic Villains of the Week despite being just as amoral as the rest, perhaps because of the atmosphere of ''mono no aware'' that he invokes.
* BareYourMidriff: His outfit is a tube top + long loincloth.
* DisguisedInDrag: Because he would have been killed if it were found out any Goemon ''sons'' were living, he starts living as a woman to deter rumours.
* EvenEvilHasLovedOnes: He's an unrepetent thief and murderer who does enjoy the thrill and glory of it, but also acts heavily out of love for Kojuro, who gave him shelter when he was being hunted and then a purpose for living.
* FlowerMotifs: Camellias are his. He was discovered hiding among the camellias by Kojuro and has loved them ever since. They are a flower that falls "purely", dropping all at once rather than petal by petal. It's both a metaphor for his swift fall for Kojuro, and his dying young and beautiful as he falls from the rooftop after battling Saizo.
* QuirkyMinibossSquad: He heads one as the ''ane'' of the Ishikawa gang.
* UndyingLoyalty: He lives only to be of use to Kojuro.
* UnsettlingGenderReveal: Saizo was surprised to learn he really was a man in the aftermath of the attack, as he dresses as a woman and refers to himself as one to conceal himself better after his father's execution.



[[quoteright:200:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/mitsunari.jpg]]



* TheFettered: He is this regarding honouring Toyotomi Hideyoshi and preventing the collapse of the nobility.



[[quoteright:200:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/kanetsugu.jpg]]



* ManipulativeBastard: He plays on Uesugi's complete lack of cunning at times to smooth things over, despite his loyalty to him.



* SmugSnake: Disdainful with a smile.




to:

[[quoteright:200:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/nobu3.png]]



* FoolishSiblingResponsibleSibling: He's the responsible sibling to Yukimura's foolish one, although he doesn't give his brother enough credit.
* MessyHair: He has the same messy hair that Yukimura does although he maintains it better. Komatsu claims there's a satisfaction in being able to comb it down.
* NoIndoorVoice: He has a tendency to shout most of his dialogue.




to:

[[quoteright:200:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/nana2_7.jpg]]



* ScarsAreForever: He gets a long, deep slash from his sternum to his stomach from Fuuma, and forgoes [[BareYourMidriff baring his midriff]] from then on, covering up with a long black shirt underneath his usual clothes.
