* BerserkButton: Admitting that you killed an innocent person ForTheEvulz, or threatening to harm an innocent person (or worse, one of his TrueCompanions), will result in a swift beat-down.

to:

* BecauseYouWereNiceToMe: Though Kenshin at first sees Kaoru as being equally important to any other person, her remarkable assertion that Kenshin's past is unimportant in relation to his present self convinces him in short order that Kaoru is particularly special. This is a main factor of him falling in love with her.

Added DiffLines:

* BecauseYouWereNiceToMe: The reason Kaoru fell for Kenshin? Because of his constant expressed hope that Kaoru's philosophy of ''katsujinken'' would someday become the reality for all Japanese swordsmen.

Added DiffLines:

* AdaptationPersonalityChange: In the anime he seems slightly more interested in girls than in the manga. In episode 12 the manner of which he meets Tsubame is different; she helps tie his broken sandal and he seems smitten at first sight with her and even gives her flowers in episode 66, but in the manga he initially had no interest in her, having simply seen her as a coworker at the Akabeko where he was working temporarily to earn money to buy a sakabato. He also developed a crush on a girl named Marimo in episode 17.

Added DiffLines:

* LogicalWeakness: {{Downplayed}}. It's never a significant inhibitor, but because of Kenshin's sword being a reverse-blade, the sharp end is the side facing himself. In the live action films Saito and Hiko both use this to their advantage by pressing Kenshin's sword against himself when they get caught in a BladeLock; what should be a dull edge is instead sharp with Kenshin's unique blade and he sustains injuries.

Added DiffLines:

* AlmightyJanitor: It's noted very early on that due to his power and reputation during the Revolution, Kenshin could've easily gained a government position in the new era. Of course, the premise of the series is that he's a wandering swordsman that is atoning for his actions.
