Added DiffLines:

* WhamShot: When Kikuchiyo is training the farmers, they all have simple bamboo spears... except for Yohei who seemingly grabbed a proper spear out of nowhere.



* WithFriendsLikeThese: Kikuchiyo and Heihachi frequently butt heads throughout the entire first act. Although after [[spoiler: Heihachi's death]] Kikuchiyo makes up for it.

This film has a serious claim to not only being the forebear to nearly ''every'' getting-the-team-together-for-a-mission movie -- whether it's a HitchhikerHeroes, RagtagBunchOfMisfits, PuttingTheBandBackTogether, or even TheCaper -- but also to being the first ''modern'' action movie. While it wasn't the first movie to use such tropes as [[SlowMotionFall dramatic slow motion]] or [[ResignedToTheCall a reluctant hero]], Kurosawa himself had been influenced by the films of Creator/JohnFord, it was the first to bring them together in such a way that would be instantly recognizable and familiar to the present-day audience.

** Kikuchiyo is quickly established as a ruffian and buffoon, but gets his moment later on, when he uses a simple false alarm to bring the samurai and the farmer militia together.

** Kikuchiyo is quickly established as a ruffian and buffoon, who shows up completely wasted in his attempt to join the team of samurai and tries to pass himself off as one of them with a scroll he stole, but he gets his moment later on, when he uses a simple false alarm to bring the samurai and the farmer militia together.

** Katsushiro seems like a simple starry-eyed novice; his SpoiledSweet moment comes when the peasants' rice (their intended pay to the samurai, and rations for the trip home) is stolen, and he donates enough money to cover their costs.
