* BeautyEqualsGoodness: Inverted with Chamberlain Mutsuta and Superintendent Kikui. The Chamberlain describes himself as having a "horse face", which lead the warriors to mistrust him. Also inverted with a couple of ugly but well-meaning young sidekicks. Played straight with Sanjuro, who is scruffy but very handsome.

So, you're Creator/AkiraKurosawa, and you've made a pretty successful movie, ''Film/{{Yojimbo}}''. You had a good star, ToshiroMifune, in a role that he was born to play[[note]]Along with Creator/TatsuyaNakadai, a born ToshiroMifune antagonist.[[/note]] Your story was so good that it'd later get swiped wholesale by Creator/SergioLeone. Disneyland hasn't opened in Japan yet so what do you do? Well, a sequel, obviously but what kind of a sequel?

The Lord reveals that he knew Sanjuro would never be able to settle down like that, and the young samurai Sanjuro had been tutoring chase after him to change his mind. [[spoiler:Ends up subverted; after having to kill his NotSoDifferent adversary, Sanjuro's too upset to stay, but he won't be venturing on either, with the implication that it's time to retire his blade.]]



* TheDrifter: Sanjuro.



* HorribleJudgeOfCharacter: Before the beginning, a group of young samurai incorrectly identify the corrupt official in the clan, and plan to root him out. This would have played out perfectly for the actual corrupt official if a certain nameless ronin hadn't been eavesdropping.



* LastVillainStand: The duel against Muroto.



* LineOfSightName: The ronin gives his family name as Tsubaki (camellia) after the nearest plant life.



* MasterSwordsman: Sanjuro, naturally.
