* BrilliantButLazy: Mumon.
* CharlesAtlasSuperpower: Apparently Iga ninja develop their ability to move at wind's speed and leap to twenty feet above ground because they used to be workers of castle and temple constructions on mountainous forests, which despite obvious difficulty still demand them to move as fast as possible.

* HonorBeforeReason: Daizen reveals Saburouzaemon's scheme to Iga's council of twelve families because he doesn't want to wage war against an enemy stupid enough to fall under such simple tactic.
* LargeHam: OdaNobunaga.
