* AdaptationalWimp: Macbeth is a TropeCodifier for VillainousValour, who marched into duel with Macduff despite knowing the prophecy came true and that he is a man of woman born, declaring that "Yet I will try my last". Here Washizu gets fragged by his own soldiers and he dies begging pathetically.

* AdaptationalVillainy:
** Tsuzuki, the King Duncan analogue, is presented as being an usurper who deposed the previous lord and is NotSoDifferent from Washizu, as his wife insists,
** Both Washizu and his wife, Lord and Lady Macbeth, are shown having a colder marriage in the film, when in the Shakespeare original, they have a loving marriage, and indeed are arguably the happiest married couple in Shakespeare. The "Tomorrow, tomorrow, tomorrow" speech is AdaptedOut, and Washizu doesn't lament how terrible it is that he can't grieve for her.

* CompletelyDifferentTitle: The Japanese title is ''Spider Web Castle'', but it was distributed in English-speaking markets and is still referred to in English by the catchier ''Throne of Blood''.

Added DiffLines:

* MeaningfulLook: When Washizu returns his lord's coffin to Forest Castle, Miki gives him a subtle look of tired contempt that says "So. This is what you've come to. Very well." before wheeling his horse about and escorting his new lord in.

* UriahGambit: Asaji believes Washizu's promotion to lead the assault (while Miki guards Washizu's castle) is an excuse to have Washizu killed.

Added DiffLines:

* NoCelebritiesWereHarmed: Washizu can be seen as a CompositeCharacter of Mituhide Akechi (who turned traitor against his lord) and Hideyoshi Toyotomi (who rose out of obscurity as a mere foot soldier to rule Japan), while Miki is Tokugawa Ieyasu (who ended the Sengoku era and founded the last shogunate)
