* BreastAttack: PlayedForLaughs when she hugs the corrosive Santera, whose spores destroy the buns Akari uses to [[FakeBoobs stuff her top]]. Akari throws a fit and complains that [[ACupAngst now she's flatter than Yuya]].

* UnsettlingGenderReveal: First as a FunnyBackgroundEvent when we see her taking a pee from behind with both her hands at crotch level. Later on it happens on a Mibu Elite who gropes her only to end up with a handful of steamed manjuu. He's very distressed by the fact that she's still hot.

* WholesomeCrossdresser: Subverted; Akari is occasionally viewed this way by other characters, but she is definitely a {{UsefulNotes/Transgender}} woman, not a crossdressing man.

* MajorInjuryUnderreaction: Before his HeelFaceRevolvingDoor settles on "face", Bontenmaru snaps his left arm in several places, and then Kyo ''cuts it off''. Hotaru barely seems to notice and responds to losing an arm with "I fight with my right". He gets it reattached off-screen and forgets that it ever came off.

* LadyOfWar[=/=]LadyOfBlackMagic: Akari is an elegant and classy lady, but she will not hesitate to kick ass, and her [[VampiricDraining vampiric energy draining]] is one of the more dangerous powers in the series.
* MagicStaff



* SilkHidingSteel: She's beautiful, elegant, and one of the strongest and most deadly characters in the manga.



* {{Transsexual}}: No one makes much of a fuss about the contents of Akari's undergarments, and it is made very clear that she absolutely is a woman. Her identity and transition were apparently supported when she was a child, likely because shamanistic powers are stronger in females. Kyo does say that the Shiseiten do not allow women to join, which would imply that he does ''not'' accept her identity. However, considering he usually uses her chosen name and female pronouns for her, he may have just been making a typically obnoxious joke.

* ElementalRockPaperScissors: Averted. It's shown throughout the story that superiority is determined by the wielder's skill and individual strength rather than their elemental affinity.

* ElementalRockPaperScissors: Averted. It's shown Subverted. Some characters (especially [[PlayingWithFire Hotaru]] [[ElementalRivalry and]] [[MakingASplash Shinrei]]) will ''claim'' that their personal element has an advantage over another, but events throughout the story prove that superiority is determined by the wielder's skill and individual strength rather than their elemental affinity.

::'''Tropes that apply to the Taishiro in general'''
* AdaptedOut: There are elders in the anime. However, not one of ''these'' elders exists - the anime elders are four nameless, faceless RedShirts who get flattened by Nobunaga. In dramatic contrast, Hishigi ''alone'' is capable of effortlessly one-shotting Kyo and rendering him unconscious for an entire volume of the manga.

** TheBrute: Yuan is initially presented this way, being a BoisterousBruiser and the only Elder who fights hand-to-hand. He subverts it later.

Hotaru's mentor and something of a surrogate father figure since he found Hotaru and took him in when he was young. Yuan is one of the current Taishiro, having taken his mother's place after her death. It is revealed later that he and his entire family are essentially prisoners of the Taishiro and the Sendai Aka No Ou due to their mother's "treason".

* SamuraiPonytail: In flashbacks when his hair was longer, and when he [[spoiler:takes Kyo's body, which has much longer hair than his]].



Come to think of it, most of Kyo's tropes would fit Kyoshiro just fine.

* CloningBlues: After finding out that forest-dwellers like himself are Mibu genetic experiments, he struggles with self-worth and worries that Yukimura will see him as a monster. It gets even worse when he encounters the other "rare breed" children, who all look like him and have the Crimson Eyes.

* DyingAsYourself: He plans to. The Devil Eyes have been trying to take over his mind since he implanted them, and Hishigi has ''no'' intention of living like that.
* DyingMomentOfAwesome: UpToEleven.

that. In the end, he [[DiedInYourArmsTonight dies in Fubuki's arms]] after the Devil Eyes have been destroyed.
* DyingMomentOfAwesome: UpToEleven. See RasputinianDeath below.



* IaijutsuPractitioner: You wouldn't think it, considering Hakuya's size and shape, but many of Hishigi's attacks are Iaijutsu-based, with him attacking on the draw and immediately returning the sword to its sheath afterwards, possibly because of the limitations resulting from the Death Disease destroying a substantial portion of the left side of his body.

* BishonenLine: Tokito is very pretty to begin with, but [[spoiler:Akira's power boost forces her to release her full power. This causes her body to grow from that of a 14-year-old into her true form: a tall, stunning young woman with long hair and more mature features (though she's flat enough that Akira still thinks she's a man until the post-fight [[TheReveal reveal)]]]].
