* {{Flynning}}: Averted. Many scenes involve the samurai/ronin go for the kill, sometimes brutally so

* {{Flynning}}: Averted. Many scenes involve the samurai/ronin go for the kill, sometimes brutally soso. It happens in its classic form during Oishi's fight on the Dutch Island with maddened Kai, since neither wants to kill, but subdue. Japanese swordsmanship avoided at all costs the edge to edge contact of the blades for show.

* AbsurdlySharpBlade: Tengu swords, but only in the hands of a brave and skillful warrior. In the hands of a coward, they become completely dull.


Added DiffLines:

* UncannyValley: The tengu, rather than possessing their traditional, long-nosed masks (which the filmmakers must've thought would look silly to a Western audience) appear to be freakish bird-human hybrids, with a nose that's somewhat between a human one and a fleshy, pointy beak. Combined with their yellow bird eyes and monotone speech, the end result is very creepy.

Outcast from society and enslaved due to being half-Japanese, half-British, a man named Kai (Creator/KeanuReeves) encounters the eponymous ronin. They, of course, are samurai out to get revenge for the death of their master. His killer, Lord Kira, is allied with a wicked witch (Creator/RinkoKikuchi) who controls supernatural forces threatening the land which Kai and the ronin must defeat.

*** Of course, Kai's fighting skills and magic abilities all come from ''Japanese beings'', as well as being raised from childhood among Samurai. Everything special about Kai comes from locals, so the MightyWhitey aspect is downplayed. If anything, his heritage is a huge problem, since people don't trust him. [[spoiler: And in the end, he dies just like all other Ronin.]]

** The Shogun tells Oishi that they should be hanged as criminals due to disobeying his order to not seek vengeance for Lord Asano's death. However, because they were following the ways of Bushido and avenged their lord's murder, he allows them to die with dignity via {{Seppuku}}.
