* ManOfWealthAndTaste: His suit.

to:

* ManOfWealthAndTaste: His suit. It is supposed to evoke the fancy European style popular with Meiji-era officials, but Watsuki was unsatisfied with the result.



* PsychoSupporter

to:

* PsychoSupporterPsychoSupporter: His devotion to Shishio borders on the patently insane, to the extent that he has a total mental breakdown when Shishio is defeated. {{Fanon}} suggests that his "baptism" left him brain damaged, but he was hardly the picture of sanity beforehand.



* SmugSnake

to:

* SmugSnakeSmugSnake: His confidence in Shishio's power and his HonorBeforeReason philosophy make him haughtier than he really ought to be. His repeated underestimation of Kenshin bites him in the ass several times, but he never learns his lesson.



* WickedCultured

to:

* WickedCulturedWickedCultured: His dandy-fied fashion sense and his frequent sipping of fancy wine is a dead giveaway.

Added DiffLines:

* HeWhoMustNotBeNamed: By the Ashitaro side story, saying his name or having any connections to his criminal empire can get a person thrown in jail for life since the Meiji government is hell bent on making erasing Shishio's name from history.

* HiddenDepths: [[spoiler:Hiko was the first to treat Fuji with respect and talk to him like a person, and it's revealed that far from being a mindless brute using nothing but brute strength, Fuji possesses the spirit of a true martial artist and [[BoxingLessonsforSuperman has excellent swordmanship technique]] along with his overwhelming power.]]

Even though in public he dismisses Sojiro for being weak after closing to depart in private Shishio takes his departure with respect.

* EvilCounterpart: To Kaoru. Both are the main love interest of swordsmen known as ''Battousai'' and act as their LivingEmotionalCrutch (Kaoru to Kenshin) or MoralityPet (Yumi to Shishio). They both feel useless when it comes to helping their love interest. However, Yumi supports Shishio's plan to destroy Meiji government and create Japan as a proud warrior race type of country; Kaoru (who is growing out of her naivety), recognizes the flaws of the government, but refuses to fix it with bloodshed.
