Added DiffLines:

* DepravedHomosexual: The ''real'' Kanryu Takeda was this (see "Historical Domain Character"). Nobuhiro Watsuki ''tried'' to work this trait in, but couldn't see how it would fit with the story, and so left out any explicit references to Takeda's sexuality. (He did mention in his side-panel notes in the manga that he wondered WhatCouldHaveBeen if he ''did'' manage to find a way to work that in, however.)


Added DiffLines:

* HistoricalDomainCharacter: Yes, there really ''was'' a Kanryu Takeda. And yes, he really ''was'' an all-around bad guy.

* NobleDemon: Despite being perhaps the most ruthless and terrifying of Kenshin's rival who is not above cheating in battle and using corruion, he is also easily the most principled. To the point even after his nightmarish BatmanGambit at the Kamiya dojo (in which Kenshin criticizes him as having turned rotten over the past decade), Kenshin assures Sanosuke that Okubo could be trusted because if he was corrupt, Saitou would have assassinated him already. Despite holding contempt for Kenshin's philosophy, Saitou even refused their planned final duel partially out of respect for Kenshin because he sacrificed so much for justice and due to his virtuous personality.

* BrokenAce: A skilled fighter who can take down nearly any opponent whose not Kenshin, as well as an excellent policeman who seems to have adjusted remarkably well in the Meiji Era. But regardless, he's working for the people and government who were his sworn enemies during the Bakumatsu (and likely killed many of his comrades) and nevertheless holds some bitterness about the changing times.

* BodyHorror: Shikijo's completely covered in scars. [[spoiler: And let's not talk about Hannya, who burned his lips, chopped off his ears, saw his nose and crushed his cheekbones in order to become the perfect spy.]]

* GameBreakingInjury: Kaoru's dad broke his right thumb in the anime. He trained in the following years to perfect left-handed swordsmanship to get revenge. Kenshin broke his left ''fingers'' in response. When he took Kaoru and Yahiko hostage during Kenshin's fight with Sanosuke, Sanosuke broke his [[ButtMonkey right leg]]. And to top it all off, his final appearance in a filler episode ends with him crawling on the ground after Yahiko [[GroinAttack broke his nuts]].

* StarterVillain: The ''hilarious'' incompetence of Gohei swordsmanship demonstrates just ''how'' powerful the ''Hiten Mitsurugi Ryu'' style is in comparison to "normal" Kenjutsu.

* IncorruptilePurePureness: He's abrasive and cutting but Kenshin considers him one of the most principled and honorable men in the series. He notes that if Okubo was truly corrupt, Saitou would've slain him long ago.
