* JustToyingwithThem: O-ren begins her duel with the Bride holding her katana with only one hand, using her wooden sheath in the other hand to bat at the Bride and harass her. When the Bride slices that sheath in two O-ren considers the stump with a wry smile, then switches to a full two-handed grip on her sword and quickly proves her abilities.

Added DiffLines:

* LikeCannotCutLike: While Hattori Hanzo declares the weapon he made for the Bride his finest work it has no particular advantage over other Hanzo swords in battle, and is incapable of cutting through them like it can other katanas. Alluded to by Budd who- when Ellie asks him how the Bride's Hanzo sword compares to his- answers that you can only compare Hanzo swords to 'every other sword ever made that wasn't made by Hattori Hanzo'.

* AwesomeAnachronisticApparel: O-Ren Ishii's white robes and The Bride's Bruce Lee-inspired striped suit.
** The kimono isn't so anachronistic; lots of women in Japan still wear them, although perhaps not such a very formal one.

* DividedForPublication: As mentioned in the description, Tarantino's original vision of ''Kill Bill'' was as a single film, but it was cut in half due to length.

* {{Recut}}[=/=]GeorgeLucasAlteredVersion: "The Whole Bloody Affair" version screened at Cannes combines the two films into one four-hour film and includes the extending the anime sequence, the Crazy 88's fight presented in full color instead of US version's black and white and removed some scenes including the WhamLine below which turns a later scene, [[spoiler:an armed Bride being greeted with "Freeze, Mommy!!" by B.B.]] into one.

* SequelHook: Elle and Sofie are still alive (if not in one piece), Budd still had some friends back in Barstow, and Vernita's daughter saw her mom killed in front of her eyes. Add the Bride's own daughter to the mix and [[WordOfGod Tarantino's comments]] and "Kill B[[spoiler:eatrix]]: Vol. 3" is just waiting to be a-born.

* AntiHero: The Bride would be classified as a Unscrupulous Hero, but occasionally pushes NominalHero. She may be a brutal assassin, but she still has [[NobleDemon certain things that she will not do]] if she can help it -- like murdering someone in front of their child.
