* AutomatonHorses: Actually the horses are treated respectfully, with the exception of the scene where Makabe jumps on a totally random horse and chases down some enemies without using the reins. But then, he's [[{{Badass}} just that good.]]
* {{Badass}}: Makabe Rokurota - no surprise here, as he is played by ToshiroMifune.

* JerkassHasaPoint: While he and Tahei are utterly incorrigible, Matashichi is right to point out that Rokurota is pretty much bullying them.

* [[UnsympatheticComedyProtagonist Unsympathetic Comedy Protagonists]]: Tahei and Matashichi are already a couple of spineless, greedy fools. They only become bigger scoundrels as the movie goes on. At their worst, they consider [[AttemptedRape molesting the princess]].

Added DiffLines:

* SingleStrokeBattle: Notably averted. While most Kurasawa samurai films tend to have fights that only take one or two strikes per opponent, the duel between Hyoe and Rokurota has a length measured in minutes.

* DidntThinkThisThrough: The party tries to use a bonfire festival as cover for why they're carrying large bundles of wood. The people holding the festival end up insisting that they contribute to the bonfire, and in the morning they have to dig the now-melted gold bars out of the ashes.



* HollywoodDensity: A point is made about how heavy gold is, and the characters are staggering under the weight. But based on the volumes of their packs, they should be carrying between two and three tons of the stuff each. If the gold bars are intended to contain 10 ryo (1 ryo = 16.5g) of gold each, then the 200 bars total would weigh somewhere between 70 and 90 pounds, depending on the purity of the bars, which is a plausible amount for two grown men to be able to carry.

Once the party loses the horse and cart, the peasants carrying the gold are shown staggering under the weight. But based on the volumes of their packs, they should be carrying between two and three tons of the stuff each, as opposed to forty-odd pounds.
