* FreudianExcuse: Shoyo Yoshida's unfair treatment and death at the hands of the Bakufu sent him flying over the DespairEventHorizon and led to his view of the world being rotten and unsalvageable. Likewise, his hatred of Gin yet neutrality towards Katsura is because [[spoiler: it was specifically Gin who killed Shoyo, having been forced into it.]]

** DiscOneFinalBoss: [[spoiler:He's eventually upstaged by the Tendoshu, who get Nobunobu to betray him and the Harusame to betray his ally Kamui. The Naraku also strike while they're fighting the Yorozuya, causing great damage to both sides and putting Takasugi in a coma. Time will tell if he'll make a comeback and eventually... he did and is fighting with Gintoki this time!]]

* {{Keigo}}: He ends his sentences with ''de gozaru'' and uses the humble first person pronoun ''sessha''. Remind you of [[RurouniKenshin anyone]], ''[[VerbalTic de gozaru]]''? Turns out he was named after Gensai Kawakami, one of the four notable assassins of the Bakumatsu period, whom Kenshin himself was inspired by.

* AdvertisedExtra: {{Lampshaded|Trope}}. Despite appearing in every opening after their appearance (and then adding Kamui when he joins Takasugi), the Kiheitai rarely ever appear and, even when they do, they usually (but not always) act in the background. In the New Years card episode Gin receives a card from the officers begging for more screen time, while other characters complain about their popularity despite their lack of screentime.
* FiveBadBand: The main officers of the Kiheitai form one:
** TheBigBad: Shinsuke Takasugi.
** TheDragon: Bansai Kawakami.
** TheEvilGenius: Henpeita Takechi.
** TheBrute: Nizo Okada.
** TheDarkChick: Matako Kijima.
** SixthRanger: Kamui.

* AdvertisedExtra: Hit with this hard. Despite appearing in every opening after their appearance (and then adding Kamui when he joins Takasugi), the Kiheitai rarely ever appear and, even when they do, their actions are minimal compared to the villains they're helping out. Lampshaded in the New Years card episode where Gin receives one from the officers begging for more screen time.

* AdvertisedExtra: Gets it the worst out of the Kiheitai. The only times where Takasugi was a main conflict was in the Gengai Arc, Benizakura Arc, the aftermath of the Four Devas arc, and the Shogun Assassination Arc, but even then was overshadowed by Nizo in the Benizakura Arc and [[spoiler: at the last moment Nobunobu and Oboro in the Assassination Arc]]. As well, the only time he had characterization outside of these arcs is during the Reunion Arc, which is ''422 chapters'' after his proper introduction. Despite it, since his introduction, he's appeared in every opening and the camera always focuses on him either first or last, and he and Kamui have quite a lot of character goods and popularity to them.
* ArchEnemy: Gintoki's and Katsura's.

* ArchEnemy: As Gintoki's and Katsura's.Katsura's former friend, he's also their most personal enemy.



* TheComicallySerious: Seen by this as his friends, especially by Gin.
** During the New Years Cards episode, Gin receives one from the Kiheitai and at first believes it's an almost death threat from Takasugi written in blood. [[spoilers: Although it turns out it's from his men.]]

Plays the role in flashbacks and made fun of for it in the present.

* {{Determinator}}: Gintoki's match in sheer determination to not give up a fight.



* EnemyMine: [[spoiler:After he and Gintoki spent several chapters beating the shit out of each other in the Shogun Assassination arc, the two briefly team up to take on Oboro when the Naraku and Tendoshu move in to mop up both the Kiheitai and the Shogun's supporters.]]

* PsychoticSmirk: His default expression.



* [[spoiler:ReformedButNotTamed or HeelFaceTurn: After feigning death, Takasugi uses Gin to blind Oboro in the same eye he took from Takasugi years ago, then verbally aligns himself with Gin. Now, whether or not he's one trope or the other depends on his actions after he gets out of that coma.]]



* SlasherSmile: He's more prone to {{Psychotic Smirk}}s, but he occasionally gives one of these as well.



* TrademarkFavoriteFood: Yakult, due to the Reunion Arc where for two chapters his running gag was about the drink. Fans quickly grabbed onto this trait, too, because it was the first goofy characterization he's ever had in, again, 422 chapters.
