* UndyingLoyalty: To Shishio. [[spoiler: He plays this trope so straight, it delves right into ''dying'' loyalty - as in, he kills himself rather than be used by the government his master despised. And he follows him straight to hell]].

* [[spoiler:KnightTemplar: The worst side of him and that which is expected of Anji's fate if he continues his path of a savior by destruction. Answered in the face of an inquisitive Sano, Anji will go on destroying and challenging those who do not share the same views as him for his ideals and utopian world. This even goes for Shishio if his future world does not match up with him either.]]

* PsychoSupporter: 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.

* 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. Unless you press his BerserkButton, in which case, all bets are off.

* TheUnperson: What the Meiji government does to him after his death. It's come to the point that a criminal mentioning his name will apparently get a life sentence, in a prison in Hokkaido. Even the remnants of his forces tend to not speak his name (though more likely out of reverence).

* AdaptationalBadass: Since the less realistic Hakujin no Tachi is removed from the live action films, his main weapon is his Renbatō which he manages to wield with a ferocity not seen in the original. It's especially notable because Kenshin shattered the Renbatō easily with his sheath in the anime while in the live action films he's unable to do that because of the scissors like design of the blades.
