* 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 take fix it with bloodshed.

* AxCrazy: Though he hides it well underneath a veneer of [[WickedCultured polish and grace.]]

* AffablyEvil: Surprisingly despite his acceptance of Shishio's SocialDarwinist doctrines, he's a genuinely refined and polite person who even is respectful to those he deems weaker. Also he doesn't go out causing pointless destruction and all murders he committed was under Sesshio's orders.

* AffablyEvil: Surprisingly despite BerserkButton: [[CharacterExaggeration Made more apparent in the anime]], but Soujirou does not take well at ''all'' to his acceptance of Shishio's SocialDarwinist doctrines, he's a genuinely refined [[SocialDarwinist worldview]] being challenged. [[spoiler: He met with [[TheBrute Senkaku]] after his escape and polite person who even is respectful assured him that Shisho didn't send him to those he deems weaker. Also he doesn't go out causing pointless destruction and all murders he committed was under Sesshio's orders.[[YouHaveFailedMe kill him]]--[[TranquilFury only to kill him anyway]], when Senkaku started talking about how Kenshin sparing him had changed his outlook.]]

* ImprobableAimingSkills: Shown in the ''To Rule Flame'' prequel, where he proves to be quite a crack-shot with a rifle. How good is he? He can aim his rifle at the spot on an enemy's vest where a button is missing and shoot at that exact spot. From several meters away. In the middle of a crowd. ''While wielding the rifle in one hand like a revolver''. (When Shishio compliments his skills he just says that since arming the organization is part of his duties he's learned to use the guns he bought perfectly.)
