%%* BigDamnHeroes
%%* NonHumanSidekick
* BigDamnHeroes: On some occasions, but also subverted as well.

%%* IDidWhatIHadToDo

to:

%%* IDidWhatIHadToDo* IDidWhatIHadToDo: After traveling with the trio, she comes to like them. But ultimately, she's forced to carry out her mission [[spoiler: for the sake of her son. But after realizing he's dead, she decides the mission isn't worth it anymore and decides to die by Mugan's hand.]]




to:

* TooDumbTooLive: [[spoiler: He gets spared ''twice'' in the final confrontation with him. First by the girl he abused, then by avoiding a giant cross dropped on him. You think he would take a hint that the "fate" he's representing is trying to tell him something and he should quit while he's ahead. Instead, he he still tries to kill the heroes with his rocket launcher. By this point, his luck runs out when his gun backfires on him and kills him where he stands.]]

%%* ActionGirl
* AllAmazonsWantHercules: She states she intends to marry Mugen when they meet again. Considering Mugen's taste in women, that might not be a joke.

to:

%%* ActionGirl
* ActionGirl: Not quite Mugen's equal in straight-up fight, and nowhere near Sara's level. But she and Mugen single-handedly took out an entire counterfeit coin operation.
* AllAmazonsWantHercules: She states she intends to marry Mugen when they meet again. Considering Mugen's taste in women, that might not be a joke.may very well happen.



%%* DeadpanSnarker

to:

%%* DeadpanSnarker* DeadpanSnarker: It's practically his default expression. He never hesitates to call Mugen out on his foolishness.



%%* PerpetualFrowner

to:

%%* PerpetualFrowner* PerpetualFrowner: The number of times he gives a sincere smile throughout the series can be counted on one hand.



%%* TheStoic

to:

%%* TheStoic* TheStoic: Virtually nothing causes him to lose his cool... except being mocked for his lack of fishing skill.



%%* IJustWantToBeYou

to:

%%* IJustWantToBeYou* IJustWantToBeYou: [[spoiler:He confesses this to be his ultimate reason for hunting down Jin.]]




to:

* Gonk: They are both reather homely.
* JapaneseDelinquents: The Edo-period anachronistic version.



* {{Badass}}: Easily the strongest opponent Jin and Mugen ever faced in the series. Its a telling thing that he took no interest in taking the duo on until news of Sara's death approached him and he fucking CURBSTOMPED both in their duels. Its only because of Jin's suicidal attack that takes him down.

* FlashStep: He moves so fast he can seemingly do this.

to:

* NoCelebritiesWereHarmed: He's pretty much an anime [[Film/LeanOnMe Joe Clark.]]

%%* CloudCuckoolander

to:

%%* CloudCuckoolander* CloudCuckoolander: Though he takes his job seriously, he often overlooks important details in his plans. For instance, he attempts to sneak onto an American ship, disguised as an American sailor... even though he doesn't look Caucasian even in the slightest, doesn't speak English, and of course, the uniform doesn't even fit him.
--> '''Sailor:''': "Who are you!?"
--> '''Manzo:''' "Uhhh, I am... AN AMERICAN. YAN-KEE DOODUL."



%%* LargeHam

to:

%%* LargeHam* LargeHam: He gesticulates wildly with his truncheon blade, and has no voice volume between "boistrous roar" and "inner monologue."



%%* NoFourthWall



%%* FailureIsTheOnlyOption

to:

%%* FailureIsTheOnlyOption* FailureIsTheOnlyOption: His arc ends with him betting his life on a game of chance. If he loses, he forfeits his life. If he wins, he forfeits his empire.




to:

* ReasonableAuthorityFigure: Before the rival yakuza gang came to town, everybody looked to him as the town's defacto leader. He was so deeply respected by the locals that he was known as "Heitaro the Buddha."



His real name is Isaac and he represents the famous Dutch East India company, the Governor-General in charge of trade. Isaac was to meet with the shogun but wanted to see Edo instead, his subordinates had been delaying the meeting while looking for him. In an emotional scene, he reveals that he was persecuted in his homeland because of his homosexuality, and upon reading Ihara Saikaku's "Great Mirror of Male Love", hoped to find a more tolerant environment in Japan - only to find that here he's a distrusted foreigner. Fuu asks him if he's seen "The Samurai who smells of Sunflowers" and shows him her trinket. After examining it he says to never show it to people and that it's dangerous to be showing it around at all in Japan.

%%* GratuitousJapanese

homosexuality, and how unlike it Europe, it was not considered a sin, or a depraved lifestyle.

Added DiffLines:

* SmallRoleBigImpact: Even though he appears in one episode, he causes significant developments in the story. What he tells Fuu not only provides a great deal of foreshadowing regarding later plotlines, but it also sets Fuu and her companions on the road to Nagasaki where they would eventually find "The Samurai who smells of Sunflowers."

* BadassNormal: Doesn't use any [[KiAttacks Ki]]. Even Mugen pulled off that weird spirit blast thing.

Added DiffLines:

* IncestSubtext: Although never outright stated, it's shown that Mukuro has been abusive and controlling of Kohza in the past, and the way he strokes her face does leave quite the implication.

* TheDragon: Despite being the closest thing the show has to a main antagonist, due to his involvement in the finale of the MythArc, he's still just a killer for the Shogunate, albeit their most deadly.
