* BaseBreakingCharacter: Chen Zhen became a rare in-universe example once his relationship with Mitsuko was revealed. Half the Jingwu school still supported him while the other half hated him for being in a romance with a Japanese woman and wanted him gone.

* AntiVillain: Akutegawa is a sore loser, but when he learns Master Wu was poisoned before their fight, he's sorely pissed about the dishonor.

* EvenEvilHasStandards: There's little in the movie to suggest that Akutegawa was a nice guy or even JerkWithAHeartOfGold but as soon as he found out he only won against Master Wu because Fujita had Wu poisoned, he was furious to learn that and accused Fujita of being dishonorable, [[spoiler: only to get killed by Fujita in return as soon as he laid hands on him]].

* KickTheSonOfABitch: Near the end, General Fujita brings out the Jingwu student who helped to poison Master Huo. Considering that Jingwu student's accomplice, the Jingwu school's cook, actually had more sympathetic reasons for agreeing to poison Master Huo(his son was being held captive), the traitorous Jingwu student especially came off as TheQuisling and a DirtyCoward, considering he helped poison Master Huo and eventually killed the more sympathetic cook to silence him. Because of that, it's next to impossible to root against Fujita in that one instance as he [[spoiler: finally puts a bullet in the traitor's head]].

** At the Jingwu school itself, both Ting-An(the actual headmaster) and Chen Zhen(more or less a de-facto leader whom students naturally gravitate towards) are leagues ahead of the rest of the Jingu students.

* CombatPragmatist: General Fujita is one of THE best fighters in the film but he isn't above shooting people or having opponents poisoned in spite of his own great strength and skill.
