Added DiffLines:

* OutOfFocus: With the onset of the Kyoto Arc she falls into this, being the one main character who stays back in Tokyo while everyone else goes to Kyoto. Megumi gets the least screen time of all the main characters, and in the anime her role in the story as one of the group is taken over by Misao.

Added DiffLines:

* SimpleMindedWisdom: At times. In the 12th episode of season 3 the artist they all meet goes on a long winded rant about the search for "true art" and how he defines beauty. All the other characters are confused, save Sanosuke who simply, and correctly, guesses he met an attractive woman.

* BadassTeacher: To Yahiko. CantCatchUp below notwithstanding, she did take on several {{Yakuza}} by herself and could've beaten TheDragon of that clan if he weren't a CombatPragmatist with a disguised sword. Granted that only happened in the anime, but both the anime and the original manga had her take down one of the ten best warriors of the Meiji era (with help, but still). Plus, while she doesn't have as many victories, her teaching abilities when looking at the progress of her students with Yahiko being able to take on foes more than double his age and Yutaro going from being unable to hold a sword properly to rivaling Yahiko in a matter of days.

* PoisonousFriend: Despite his loyalty and admiration of Kenshin's beliefs, he doesn't necessarily shy away from killing. When Kenshin [[spoiler: fights Aoshi again]] he notes that with the current state of mind his opponent is in, it's either "kill or be killed". Against Shishio, he resolved to take him down himself if Kenshin failed or died.

Against Shishio, he resolved to take him down himself if Kenshin failed or died. Finally, prior to Kenshin's second fight with Enishi, he admonishes Yahiko for threatening to kill Enishi [[spoiler:if he didn't bring out Kaoru]] since he's supposed to uphold the non-killing values of the Kamiya Kasshin style. Luckily, Sano isn't bound by such values so he offers to tear apart Enishi for him.

* ActionGirl: Depending on your viewpoint and on the story arc, she is either this or FauxActionGirl. Averted in the 1996 TV series and to a lesser extent the live action movies. (see AdaptationalBadass below).

* AdaptationalAngstUpgrade: The ''Reflections'' OVA portrays as very mopey compared to how she's usually portrayed in the series. One particularly major change is her anguish over being Kenshin's SecondLove. In the manga, while certainly shocked, she's nowhere near as angsty about it with Megumi being rather surprised at her understanding Tomoe's situation pretty well.

Added DiffLines:

* YoungerThanTheyLook: He looks to be around Kenshin's age (though admittedly Kenshin looks pretty young) or at least somewhere in his 20s, especially since he's over a head taller than Kenshin. He's actually 19, nearly a decade younger than Kenshin. It's why in the flashbacks Kenshin fought in the war as an adult, whilst Sanno was a fairly young child.

Added DiffLines:

* BareHandedBladeBlock: Played for laughs when Yahiko gets fed up with her pessimism and takes a swing at her with his wooden sword. She catches it in much the same pose as this trope usually has, and seeing as its made of wood (and swung with the force a child like Yahiko can muster regardless of skill) this ends up as a more realistic example than most.

* NoSell: PlayedForLaughs. Usually whenever Kaoru (or Yahiko to a lesser extent) get's into some comical anger and physical blows, Sonoske reacts non-plussed to their hits.
