* GreaterScopeVillain: The Akashi family and Shinwa Group serve as this in ''Proxy War'', being Japan's biggest yakuza syndicates. Apparently the gang war in Hiroshima is just another flashpoint in the two gang's attempt to curb power for themselves across Japan.

* FromNobodyToNightmare: Yamanaka at the start of ''Hiroshima Death Match'' is just a broke ButtMonkey. By the end he's a suicidal, bordeline insane hitman.
* GenreDeconstruction: This series deconstructs everything about the yakuza. Instead of the loyal brothers they were in older films, here they are conniving, greedy, vicious lying bastards, willing to sell their own sworn brothers down the river. The Yakuza code is portrayed as a joke, and every time honored tradition of the Yakuza is seen as outdated, foolish, or even just plain crazy. The main character is a man who actually wants to hearken back to the old ways and honors the code, but soon finds that such ideals have no place in the dirty world he finds himself in.
