* SplitSecondBladeSpam: As the 13th master of the ''Hiten Mitsurugi'' style, he naturally is capable of using the same ''Kuzu Ryuu Sen'' that he taught Kenshin [[spoiler:just before he went off to face down Shishio and his Juppongatana at their HQ.]]

to:

* SplitSecondBladeSpam: As Even as the 13th master of the ''Hiten Mitsurugi'' style, he naturally is capable of using the same style's unbelievably famous ''shinsoku'' without the need for battojutsu. As such, attacks like the Ryusosen, a technique that involves merely slashing the enemy at their opening with said speed, and the ''Kuzu Ryuu Sen'' that he taught Kenshin [[spoiler:just before he went off to face down Shishio and his Juppongatana at their HQ.]]HQ]] are practically second nature for him to perform and even outclasses his apprentice in this aspect.

* BadassCape: His cape is actually the symbol of his mastery of the Hiten Mitsurugi style, and he inherited it from his own master.

* BadassCape: His cape is actually the symbol of his mastery of the Hiten Mitsurugi style, and he inherited it from his own master. Watsuki says in an author's note the cloak was inspired by ''Spawn''.


Added DiffLines:

* InvincibleHero: A top-class MasterSwordsman. The Mangaka even admits because of this, he finds it hard how to properly use him.


Added DiffLines:

* UnluckyThirteen: Is the 13th successor of the Hiten Mitsurugi Ryu. Unlucky to anyone who picks a fight with him. Also unlucky for Kenshin in having him for a master since his training methods are... unorthodox.

* WhoAreYou: In the opening of the ''Trust and Betrayal" OVA, Seijūrō saves Kenshin from being killed by bandits. Just before being killed, the last bandit asks the Seijūrō who he is. He replies [YouAreAlreadyDead "You won't live long enough to remember my name."]

* WarriorTherapist: If Kenshin would be the equivalent a doctor in this line of work, Hiko would be the Surgeon General. It doesn't just run merely in the guy either; along with reading the opponent and hunting down their ''ki'', Hiten Mitsurugi also teaches its successors the importance of the human condition and the moral philosophy of being a warrior, including how not all foes are that despicable nor simple minded, and that the blade must be held for those beyond saving. [[spoiler:Though it is unfortunate that Hiko the XIII's career is foreshadowed to be filled with failures to save and come to more happier conclusions in the past, he at least undoes the roots of Kenshin's Hitokiri Battousai alter ego and lets Fuji of the Juppongatana know that he deserves the dignity and respect of not just a warrior, but a human being.]]

* HermitGuru: He saw in Himura Shinta's kindness the potential of a worthy successor to his tradition, and adopted him as Kenshin to create one... though the results were not exactly what he intended or liked... until much later.

* {{Foil}}: To Yahiko. Both are quite bratty, but show a lot of potential in swordsmanship which Kaoru is able to bring out. They differ in how they were raised, Yahiko being a StreetUrchin while Yutaro being born into wealth. The manga adds an extra parallel in that Yahiko is partially motivated in honoring his late mother and father while Yutaro wants to avoid becoming a spineless merchant like his father.



* HeroicBSOD: Following Raijuta's KickTheDog moment.

to:

* GetAHoldOfYourselfMan: At the end of the Raijuta arc, [[spoiler:Yahiko attacks Yutaro, despite him being crippled, telling him to pick himself up and become better than ideal swordsman he thought Raijuta was. Yutaro is able to block the attack with his cane, and that plus Yahiko's words convinces him that swordsmanship is not over for him, claiming that he will defeat Yahiko with just his left hand if he has to]].
* HeroicBSOD: Following Raijuta's KickTheDog moment.moment, he is left nearly speechless, knowing that his master used him all along and essentially took away his ability to hold a sword forever. Yahiko is able to snap him out of it.


Added DiffLines:

* NotSoDifferent: Despite his [[StepfordSmiler constant optimism]], [[spoiler:Yutaro's father hates being a cowardly merchant just as much as Yutaro does. Unfortunately, it was either he embraced that or end up with a far less stable life like many other samurai.]]
