* PromotedToLoveInterest: In the manga her relationship with Sanosuke was a purely Platonic friendship. The TV series shows Sanosuke giving her gestures of affection and while her primary man of interest is Kenshin, she is fully aware of Sano's attraction and appreciates it even if she doesn't give it back directly. Once she confirms Kenshin's true one is Kaoru, she begins to show affection towards Sanosuke especially in the filler Tales of the Meiji Arc. Even while admitting Megumi was a beauty, Sanosuke never showed the level of attraction towards her as he did in the anime and was too busy with his own personal business to attempt to get with her in a few social activities as the anime filler did.* RapunzelHair: Megumi's hair reaches to her waist.

* FauxActionGirl: Kaoru is a national level champ at kendo, but she gets severely beaten in the ''first chapter'' and is then kidnapped several times. The only time she ever beats a non-mook villain is when she teams up with another girl to fight [[UnfortunateImplications a crossdresser]]. The writers HandWave it with the idea that all the major characters are underworld fighters who are so [[CharlesAtlasSuperpower absurdly powerful]] that regular civilians CantCatchUp. However, Kaoru's ''10-year-old male student'' Yahiko is encouraged to fight underworld assassins on his own after less than a year of swordsmanship training, so we know that's no excuse. It's especially {{egregious}} in RK's setting, where the presence of an InstantExpert doesn't make much sense in a time period where the strongest characters honed their fighting skills through years of hellish war. Then, in ''Ruroni Kenshin: Restoration'' Kaoru is is introduced as having won eight straight battles against other sword fighters before the story begins, then defeats Kenshin because he didn't realize he was in a match. After that, Kenshin rescues her from an ambush, and she never fights again.

* AdaptationalBadass, AscendedExtra: While she has her moments in the manga, for the most part Megumi is a CombatMedic who barely appears for much of the story. The anime practically has her in almost every episode including arcs she never participated. In addition to being put into harm's way more frequently, she is also far more physically involved, using her wits to take out mooks in violent situation. The films too extend her role enough that she's a major part of the cast.

* KnightInSourArmor: Incredibly wary of participating in conflicts involving the government especially highly political ones because of the disappointment of the results of the Meiji Restoration. To the point he was hesitant to go to Kyoto to face off Shishio despite being fully aware of the threat he poses. However in the end he ultimately always enters into conflict to defend the weak in spit of the possible unintended negative political repercussions.

* {{Badass}}: 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).
