We had a... uh, few drinks to... uh... celebrate Sensei's victory.\\ '''Usagi''': ''Ha!'' I also did such things that Katsuichi-sensei never knew about.

* {{Cool Sword}}s: Less explicate than other examples, but Usagi's pair of swords are truly awesome. He first earns them as a prize for winning a tournament and they're even [[NamedWeapons named Young Willow and Willow Branch.]] The swords are practically invincible considering they haven't been shown to have so much as a chip after all the things he's sliced with them, and in a few panels they're even shown to have cut into opponents swords during a BladeLock! Once he even sliced an ogre's club clean in half with some effort. In a series where it's stated over and over how a Samurai's swords are his soul, Usagi's never disappoints. The story ''Daisho'' shows the swords forging three centuries before Usagi's birth, making clear just how they have such admirable qualities and just what is at stake, should he ever lose them. Precious indeed.

* LetsYouAndHimFight: Averted in "Shades of Green"; Usagi and Gen joined with an old wizard to fight off an army of ninjas. The wizard reasoned that they need ninjas of their own, so he conjured four ninjas to aid them. Specifically, [[ComicBook/TeenageMutantNinjaTurtles Leonardo, Donatello, Michaelangelo and Raphael.]] Finding themselves in unfamiliar surroundings, they thought this was a trap set by Splinter and were set to attack Gen and Usagi, until Leonardo (who had met Usagi before) recognized him. The two exchanged pleasantries and Leo's brothers decided that if Leo trusted Usagi, they would trust him as well.
