* ShoutOut: Inverted. Watsuki being a bigtime fan, Genjuro's design was what inspired the design of pre-mummy [[Manga/RurouniKenshin Makoto Shishio]]
* SpamAttack: His Hyakki Satsu (Hundred Demons Killer), which actually turns into a brutal gut-stabbing attack when any of the hits connect.

Added DiffLines:

* ThreeStrikeCombo: His Sanren Satsu (Triple Killer), [[CaptainObvious as aptly named]], which can either work as normal or he can slash past-through his opponent with each strike. He uniquely shouts out "Inoshikacho" when he connects all three hits.

* {{Expy}}: He is sometimes likened to a "Samurai [[VideoGame/TheKingOfFighters Iori Yagami]]", though they're not related and despite Genjuro being created before. ''VideoGame/SNKVsCapcomSVCChaos'' makes fun of this.

* {{Foil}}: Of Iroha, in every way: their personalities, the color of their clothes (Tsunami [[WomanInWhite wears in white]] and Iroha [[WomanInBlack mostly in black]]) and even their weapons, having Tsunami a big shield that contrast Iroha's blades.

* DeathFromAbove: His Resshin Zan (Violent Quake Slash).
* ForMassiveDamage: While his heavy slash was a codifying example of many, he has an UpToEleven version with his Zankousen (Slashing Steel Flash) move, which while slow, is an even STRONGER VERSION of that said heavy slash.



* {{Shotoclone}}: Somewhat. He's got a projectile and a dragon punch, but they don't function like you'd expect. Nonetheless, he serves this role in the series for the most part.
* SpellMyNameWithAnS: "Haohmal". Some arcade stickers include the romanization "Haōmaru"
