* DangerouslyGenreSavvy: And HOW. He's savvy enough to have every major character weakened before battling him since his time limits means he has no chance of fighting them all at once or one after the other otherwise. He also learns their key techniques before hand which lets him figure out how to counteract them. The anime states knowing the technique before hand decreases its effectiveness by half. Having them fight exhausted took even more of the edge off.

* BadassInCharge: The BigBad leader of the "Kyoto arc". He takes so much punishment, and gives back so much in return, that characters occasionally ''doubt that he's human.''

* EvilerThanThou: His first assignment was [[spoiler: to eliminate the treacherous Choshu agent Iizuka, who was instrumental in Battousai's fatal match with the Yaminobu and Tomoe's death]]. He later remarks that [[EvenEvilHasStandards such scum as Iizuka]] are far beneath his skills, but will bide his time serving the Ishin Shishi [[FromNobodyToNightmare in order to make his name known]].

* CulturedBadass: Yumi's not a fighter, but is skilled in other areas. She's a very intelligent woman and former high-class courtesan, Yumi is quite knowledgeable in regards to international affairs and modern discourse.


Added DiffLines:

** Though entirely clueless when it comes to swords and swordsmanship, she has demonstrated the ability to operate modern Western machines such as the telegraph and seems to be the chief monitor of Shishio's medical condition,changing his bandages regularly and also keeping track of his rising body temperature.

* TransEqualsGay: Played with. He ''is'' a (very convincing) crossdressing AntiVillain who is in love with his male boss, Shishio. But while he is both gay and a VillainousCrossdresser [[spoiler: and a [[WholesomeCrossdresser Wholesome]] one after his HeelFaceTurn]], he is ''not'' transgender, as he identifies as a guy and flashes Misao when she accidentally misidentified him as a woman; he seems to find her mistake and her reaction both hilarious, despite having the crossdressing skills of a kabuki ''onnagata'' ([[WildMassGuessing which it has been theorized he once was]]) and presumably convincing people on a regular basis.
