Added DiffLines:

* JapanesePronouns: As in the original manga, Kenshin overwhelmingly uses the old-fashioned "sessha" as his personal pronoun. When he walks in on Jin'e and the kidnapped Kaoru, he uses "ore" and "kisama", both for the only time in the movie. This is very, ''very'' bad...[[SuperpoweredEvilSide for Jin'e]].

* TrademarkFavoriteFood: Sano is quite fond of raw eggs and will often down one before a fight. [[WordOfGod Director Ohtomo]] stated at the LA Eiga Festival that Sano's fondness for raw eggs became his character tic because the character tic of his manga/anime counterpart, having a fish bone in his mouth, would look too silly in real life.

* AdaptationDistillation: [[JustifiedTrope Understandable]], given how long the anime ran. It's essentially the first eleven episodes condensed into two hours, with a sprinkling of Tsuiokuhen and Saito arriving way too early in the series. Considering how disparate the source episodes are, they are wonderfully meshed into one coherent story.

Considering how disparate the source episodes are, they are wonderfully meshed into one coherent story.

* AHandfulForAnEye: When Kanryu threatens Kenshin and Sanosuke with his gatling gun, Sanosuke throws an egg at his face, which distracts him long enough for the two to get to cover.


Added DiffLines:

* KneelBeforeZod: When Kanryu has his gatling gun pointed at Kenshin and Sanosuke, he orders them to strip, kneel, and beg for their lives. Instead, Sanosuke distracts him by throwing an egg at him.


Added DiffLines:

* WaterSourceTampering: Kanryu's men flush Megumi out of hiding by pouring rat poison into the village well. She is able to treat everybody who drank the tainted water, but she decides to stop hiding and return to Kanryu's mansion, fearing more attacks on the people.

* WarIsHell: Done quite subtly-yet-beautifully in showing the aftermath of the Battle of Toba-Fushimi in the prologue. Seeing the dead bodies of all combatants, friend and foe piled up together in the field while being [[SnowMeansDeath slowly buried in snow]], drives home how many lives and personal futures have been sacrificed just to bring a new era. It's [[ShoutOut comparable to]] Creator/AkiraKurosawa's staging of post-combat deaths in his latter-year big-budget films such as ''{{Kagemusha}}'' and ''Film/{{Ran}}''.
