* CharacterizationMarchesOn: He's introduced as another ruthless villain as he sics his wolves on an entire human village and kills another wolf youkai without batting his eye. This is never mentioned again afterwards as Kouga goes on to be an AntiHero that flirts with Kagome and bickers with Inuyasha for comedy relief and occasionally helps the group in their battles.

* MoralMyopia: His EstablishingCharacterMoment is slaughtering an [[ThrowAwayCountry entire village]] because his pet wolves were hungry, but enters an UnstoppableRage when his [[MauveShirt pack]] is killed by Inuyasha's group, even though the group only killed the pack out of self-defense. Despite this Koga is considered to be [[AntiVillain sympathetic]].

* PutOnABus: After his shards are taken his character leaves the story.



* ThrowawayCountry: A rare example of a "heroic" character actually being a ''cause'' of this trope. Koga slaughtered the populace of two villages, on screen, and not a word is ever said about them -- or the others he may well have destroyed before he met Kagome.

* BadassGrandma: Not as handy as her older sister in a fight (who, in Kaede's defense, was a noted prodigy), but she's still a gifted archer and mage, and is able to hold her own in a fight against lesser demons.



* NeverMessWithGranny: Any old woman capable of more or less keeping up with all of this qualifies. Not many people can stand up to demons, and few will go headlong into fights against them.

* ItWasWithYouAllAlong: [[spoiler: Learning compassion, accepting his younger half-brother for what he is, and understanding even his vast power has limits (notably when Rin almost died for good if it wasn't for his ''mother'') was ''all'' for the purpose of giving him what he wanted all along...a sword. The Bakusaiga. A sword born of ''his'' strength not his fathers, and potentially more powerful than ''any physical weapon in the series.'']]

* BroughtDownToBadass: According to the filler episodes 147 and 148 of the anime, her powers were weakened somewhat thanks to Tsubaki's {{curse}}. She's still pretty powerful, though.

* {{Badass}}: He's easily the strongest non-enhanced demon alive in the series, only surpassed by his father, [[spoiler: whom he later surpasses upon receiving the Bakusaiga]].



* {{Hypocrite}}: During his debut arc, he calls Inuyasha out on his disrespect for trying to fight him in their father's grave. Inuyasha just as quickly calls ''him'' out, pointing out he has no room to talk about disrespecting their father's grave when he himself was trying to ''rob'' it.

* {{Badass}}: When provoked into a fight, he can kill demons with his bare hands. In the anime he ''beheads'' a giant insect demon by ''hugging it'', and then shatters its head with one punch.
* BewareTheNiceOnes: Generally passive and kind, but as shown in his appearance, he's ''not'' one to be trifled with when push comes to shove.

* AnArmAndALeg: His first fight with Inuyasha ends with Inuyasha using the Tessaiga to chop off his left arm. It isn't until the final arc that [[spoiler: said arm grows back]].

* AnArmAndALeg: His first fight with Inuyasha ends with when Inuyasha using the Tessaiga to chop off severs his left arm. It isn't until Sesshoumaru initially struggles to handle the final arc loss, which causes Naraku to exploit it in an attempt to pit the two brothers against each other for his own gain. Being used by Naraku starts Sesshoumaru down the road of becoming one of Naraku's enemies. Sesshoumaru eventually admits that [[spoiler: said the one thing he has never blamed Inuyasha for is the loss of his arm grows back]].because the loss has made him much more powerful than he ever was with two arms. [[spoiler:When Naraku finally sends Magatsuhi against Sesshoumaru, Magatsuhi renders Sesshoumaru unable to fight by deliberately targeting Sesshoumaru only arm. The sheer scope of Magatsuhi threat to both Sesshoumaru and Inuyasha's groups brings even Sesshoumaru to the verge of death, resulting in him finally manifesting his true power - regenerating his lost arm in the process and creating the only sword that is capable of defeating Naraku's regeneration.]]
