** Whenever Ken walks in the anime, more often than not the animators just take a static frame of him and wave it up and down. Leads to {{Narm}} in some cases, such as the [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fAYLxEG5X-Y HILARIOUSLY bad special effect in episode 23,]] where we see Ken from an exploding Mook's point of view, and it's painfully obvious that the animators just waved Ken's picture around in the background.

Added DiffLines:

* LaserGuidedKarma: Kenshiro is a living embodiment of this. Whenever savage thugs or would-be dictators kill helpless people for fun and amusement, expect them to suffer violent and painful deaths at the literal hands of Kenshiro.

* PerformerGuise: Legends of the Dark King starts off with this instance, when Raoh disguises himself as a performer with a giant koto, though the disguise is not too convincing considering how huge he is. When the ruler of a local area requests to hear him play, he then calmly smashes said koto and then declares that he cannot play the koto.

** Even some of the major martial artists in the manga were modeled after popular musicians from the era, such as Juda (modeled after Boy George with a bit of Dee Snider), Ryuga (based on David Bowie), Hyui (named and modeled after Huey Lewis), Han (modeled after Freddie Mercury) and Emperor of Light Baran (modeled after young Pete Burns).

* NamesTheSame: In-universe, [[KungFuJesus Toki]] and [[BattleAura Touki]].

to:

* NamesTheSame: In-universe, Quite a few in-universe examples:
**
[[KungFuJesus Toki]] and [[BattleAura Touki]].Tōki]], although the latter has a long vowel and is alternatively pronounced "aura" in some panels.
** Ryūken could refer to the Hokuto Shinken master who trained the four Hokuto Brothers or the Hokuto branch named after a shining stone.
** The name Zaku was used twice for two different minor villains: one of them a servant of Ken-oh and the other is a member of the Tentei army who is killed by Kenshiro off-screen.
** Ryū is the name of either, Raoh's posthumous son or Kaioh's pet dog.

Added DiffLines:

* NamedByTheAdaptation: Many minor characters that were unnamed in the manga were named in the anime like Johnny the Bartender (who was a prominent character in the early arcs) and Kiba Daioh (the leader of the Kiba clan). Jackal's biker gang was also given a name in the anime, where they're known as The Warriors (a possible reference to the [[Film/TheWarriors 1979 film of the same name]]).

* TheNarrator: Creator/ShigeruChiba, who also voiced a few of the villains, pulls double duty here. He also gets gradually more excitable as the TV series goes on; as an episode of ''Series/TriviaNoIzumi'' pointed out, he starts off doing the next-episode previews in a rather stern voice, but by the final episode he's [[ChewingTheScenery screaming the narration at the top of his lungs]]. It originally started as an in-joke by Chiba; he apparently stopped ramping it up for a while for fear of giving himself an aneurysm, but began doing it again when fans asked him why he wasn't shouting anymore.
