Added DiffLines:

* FailureToSaveMurder: He believes himself guilty of one, in the case of Mahiro's sister. Chinmei killed her, but Kyo never tells [[RevengeBeforeReason Mahiro]] because he believes he really ''is'' to blame because he couldn't save her.

* BlondGuysAreEvil: In the anime, at least when he's acting as Ajira. His hair is actually more reddish in the manga (by the end, anyway. Kamijyo can't seem to decide what color his hair is at first, and it goes from silver/white to blond before finally settling on red).

* ThirdPersonPerson: He tends to refer to himself as Maro, which is likely his real name.
** On the other hand it could be a very antiquated personal pronoun.

* TheDreaded: Yuan describes him as an "incredibly efficient executioner", and once says that the reason no one knows how he fights is that no one has ''ever'' faced him one on one and survived. His arrival is usually an OhCrap moment for the protagonists.



* BadassFamily: Yuan's mother was one of the Four Elders, and his father is the greatest swordsmith in Mibu history (he was ''Muramasa's'' master). And then there's Yuan's "personal guard"... AKA eight of his siblings. Some of them are goofy -- ''all'' of them are badass. [[CoolBigSis Anna]] even scares Yuan himself. His older brother Anri is the infamous "Tengu of Mt Kurama", who developed the Sekireigan and taught it to Yukimura.

* BewareTheSillyOnes: She's an odd one, but underestimating her is a ''huge'' mistake. Kyo, our favorite arrogant BloodKnight who has never admitted he's outmatched at this point, tells Sasuke that Shihodo is one of the few people he "just can't handle".



* CoolSword: Her Kusanagi-no-Tsurugi (yes, that one) which she can use to summon clouds capable of eating through enemy attacks.

* {{Badass}}



* GoodScarsEvilScars: Played with. Kyo is about as "anti" as a hero gets, so his multitude of scars aren't as jarring as they might be on a less ambiguously heroic character. But the scars on his ''face'' are understated, and none of it really detracts from his appearance. For the most part, they just emphasize that he is a massive {{Badass}}.

* {{Badass}}: Among the human characters, Benitora is very likely the top of the top in the BadassNormal category.



* InLoveWithYourCarnage: In a platonic sense (not so platonic with Akari), about Kyo. He was a {{Badass}} BloodKnight of the highest order and they were impressed with how effectively he could kill things, so they followed him for years.

* TheBerserker: At a glance, Bon appears to be the most level-headed of the Shiseiten. But when he enters his berserker state, he's completely wild. Hotaru has even stated that back in the day, he was like a wild animal who tore everything in his path apart when he let loose, and the [[{{Badass}} other Shiseiten themselves tended to just walk away until he was done]]!

* {{Badass}}: Akira, Hotaru, and Bontenmaru are all afraid of her. You have to be a badass for that.



* {{Badass}}: Sasuke is the youngest of the Sanada 10, and everyone else is old enough to be his parent. But Sasuke is by far the most powerful.
** In a rather hilarious example, one chapter features a flashback to an eight-year-old Sasuke sitting in front of a pile of the rest of the Juyushi, having just beat them all in sparring matches and complaining that none of them are strong enough to give him a challenge.



* {{Badass}}: He's the first character shown to have defeated Kyo. And he doesn't even get off his horse.
** BadassMoustache: Had one on his real body back when he was alive.

* {{Badass}}: Give this lady her due: without having Saishi's regenerative power she's still able to fight on par with Akira, turn his own secret technique against him and nearly kills him.



* {{Badass}}: One of the strongest Taishiro, he manages to hold his own even after Kyo gets yet another upgrade in badass. Not to mention that he flattens Shinrei and Hotaru with ease.
** BadassLonghair: Though an omake jokes that it's actually a wig, making Fubuki BaldOfAwesome instead.
** CulturedBadass: He used to perform on the water stage at festivals in better times -- the Mumyo Saigyo Ryu school was developed as a dance as much as a fighting style.

* {{Badass}}: He stands out even in [[WorldOfBadass this manga]]. Yuan describes him as an "incredibly efficient executioner", and once says that the reason no one knows how he fights is that no one has ''ever'' faced him one on one and survived.
** AwesomenessByAnalysis: During his battle with Yuan, it appears that he's using the same vocal tic that Shinrei does, meaning he has analyzed the way Yuan moves and can match him to evade.
** BadassBookworm[=/=]GeniusBruiser: He's a little bit of each -- sure as hell doesn't look like a harmless bookworm, but he's not especially physically imposing either. Extremely intelligent and described as a genius on a regular basis.
** BadassGay: Implied. The level of HoYay with Fubuki is truly impressive, and he has some suggestive dialogue with Kyo as well.
** BadassLongcoat: Black leather with no sleeves and three tails.
** HandicappedBadass: The Death Disease has pretty much destroyed the left side of his body. He's missing an eye, it's implied that his left arm doesn't work all that well, and he's ''still'' one of the most powerful characters in the entire story.

He's also the ''only'' character shown holding his own against Hishigi (for a while, anyway) before Kyo unlocks [[TookALevelInBadass another level]].

AKA eight of his siblings. Some of them are goofy -- ''all'' of them are badass. [[CoolBigSis Anna]] even scares Yuan himself. His older brother Anri is the infamous "Tengu of Mt Kurama", who developed the Sekireigan and taught it to Yukimura.

* JustToyingWithThem: The beginning of his fight with Hotaru. Yuan starts off saying he can beat Hotaru [[WithMyHandsTied using only his right foot]]. And [[{{Badass}} he almost does]]. When Hotaru finally forces him to use one of his hands, Yuan is supposed to "spin around three times and bark", stakes that Hotaru had previously declared and at which Yuan had laughed. His acquiescence takes the form of three ''vicious'' [[HurricaneKick spinning strikes]] (punch, elbow to the face, and kick), followed by...

** HeartbrokenBadass: The Sendai Aka No Ou asked her to kill him if he ever turned down the path of evil. She couldn't do it because of her love for him, which is why she hides in the labyrinth beneath Onmyo Palace. Also applies after his death.
** RetiredBadass: For the above reason of heartbreak.

Added DiffLines:

* SelfImposedChallenge: Fighting Hotaru using [[WithMyHandsTied only his right foot]]. He also primarily fights hand-to-hand, despite the fact that his greatest strength is in swordfighting.
