* AbsurdlySharpBlade : Nick manages to both cut through things that would in reality survive the stroke, but also make precision cuts far too delicate to be possible - such as removing someone's eyebrows without doing any damage to the skin underneath.

* AbsurdlySharpBlade : Nick manages to both cut through things that would in reality survive the stroke, but also make precision cuts far too delicate to be possible - such as removing someone's eyebrows without doing any damage to the skin underneath. Both are something that Zatoichi does, the first repeatedly and the second was done in ''Zatoichi Challenged''.



* DirtyCop: When Slag comes for Mrs. Devereaux and Billy, two crooked cops assist him, so the kidnapp can be staged as if Billy was eye-witness of some unspecified crime. When [[spoiler: Mrs. Devereaux is shot by Slag]], one of cops mentions that it wasn't part of their deal.

* MegaNekko: Annie. She has big glasses, but a fantastic figure.



* ShoutOut: The whole film is one big shout out toward old Franchise/{{Zatoichi}} films, of whom producer Tim Matheson is big fan. Many details are practically ripped - SwordCane, facade of being harmless or using sharpened hearing to win in casino (or find out when the house is cheating)

* LostInTheMaize: When Billy learns that [[spoiler: his mom was killed]], he runs away from Nick into the corn field. The {{Mooks}}, who were following them, take this as opportunity to kidnapp the boy.

* PaperThinDisguise: Nick is able to pass two guards just by wearing the white jacket of a waiter. By the time the guards realise something is off, it's too late.

* RuleOfFunny: Shaving someone's eyebrow off with a sword-swipe is more funny than plausible.



* WhatHappenedToTheMouse: Literal example. Frank is showed testing his new drug on lab rats. What happend to them, when he torches the lab?
** Last time we see [=MacCready=], he is struggling with Frank over the shotgun and next scene is at a bus station. We don't know how the struggle ended or if [=MacCready=] was sent to the authorities.
*** The customer in the drug deal, who walked away seconds before Nick storms into the room where the deal was held.

* NeverTrustATitle: Blind? Sure. Fury? Not really. [[RuleOfCool But ''Blind Swordsman'' isn't cool enough...]]
** The "fury" is probably caused by the death of Meg Foster (Nicks former wife in The Osterman Weekend)

* BrattyHalfPint: Billy's behaviour sometimes even borders TroublingUnchildlikeBehavior, with flapping the bird, attempting to steal from his caretaker and general rudeness toward elders. [[CharacterDevelopment He gets better later on]].
