Added DiffLines:

* ObfuscatingInsanity : A light example. He has become a bit absent-minded and [[CloudCuckoolander strange]] in his old age, but he's seemingly every bit as sharp as he was in his prime, still as dangerous as any young swordsman and certainly much wiser than the majority of the other characters. Observe how he defended himself from Musashi in his sleep and stared down the [[BloodKnight vicious]] swordsman Ito Ittosai, deterring both without even having a sword on his person. [[spoiler:Later inverted on his deathbed, when his mind genuinely begins to slip]].

* NoBadassToHisValet : Musashi comes across as either a savage killer or peerless warrior, depending on who you ask, but his TricksterMentor Takuan Soho sees him for what he really is: A frightened, confused youth with something to prove. Despite how easily he could brutally murder the monk, Takuan continuously [[ArmorPiercingQuestion criticizes]] and [[ToughLove taunts]] Musashi from their very first meeting, even when threatened with physical violence.

Added DiffLines:

* BullyingADragon : A middle-aged Buddhist monk who mercilessly mocks, [[TheReasonYouSuckSpeech scolds]] and even challenges a violent young swordsman who practically leaves a path of corpses everywhere he goes. Most of his shenanigans are actually just an unorthodox approach to guidance, as he actively seeks to [[ToughLove help Musashi realize who he really is]], but that doesn't make it any less brazen. This is true to history, as Takuan Soho was respected by warlords and samurai for his frank, astute advice, but his acerbic honesty made him plenty of enemies as well.

* AdaptationDeviation: The historic Kojiro was rumored to be fully or partially deaf in one ear, though nothing of the sort was suggested in the Eiji Yoshikawa novel. Vagabond is loosely inspired by history and the novel, but deviates heavily from both in that Kojiro is completely deaf and mute.



* HandicappedBadass

to:

* HandicappedBadassHandicappedBadass : Deaf, mute, and easily one of the most talented and lethal swordsmen in the entire series, [[WorldOfBadass which is saying a lot]].

* MosesInTheBullrushes: Kojiro is introduced in this fashion. His father had him sent by boat from a besieged castle to be raised by his master, Kanemaki Jisai. His mother had been swept overboard and killed during the voyage and he would have suffered the same fate if Jisai hadn't saved him.
