* 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.

* MistreatmentInducedBetrayal: [[spoiler:Hyoe is maimed by his lord for losing the CombatByChampion and allowing Makabe to leave after winning. This, combined with kindness from Makabe and Yuki, causes him to switch sides and help them escape captivity with the gold.]]



* RefugeInAudacity: How does Rokurota get the gold concealed in the firewood past the checkpoint? By marching straight up to it and showing the samurai on guard one of the pieces of gold which he claimed to have found on the mountain - then he makes a fuss about getting them to give it back to him to distract the guards while the others hustle through with the rest of it.

** The plan to smuggle the princess and the gold to her ally's territory. The border between the recently conquered lands and their allies is heavily guarded, so instead they travel through their enemy's lands to their border with the allies, on the assumption that said border would be less heavily defended.

* EvenEvilHasStandards: While not being particularly evil, Tahei and Matashichi are clearly lacking morals. Still, Matashichi refuses to steal the dead warrior's weapons early on. And then he proceeds to go ahead and strip the warrior after Tahei declares, "[[ScrewThisImOuttaHere]] Do what you want. I'm going home]]".

* SecretTestofCharacter: Rokurota claims that this was the reason why he made Tahei and Matashichi dig in the ground of the hidden fortress when the gold was hidden in the spring all along.
* ScreamslikeaLittleGirl: Both the peasants, but particularly Tahei.
