Early in the manga, Hideyuki dies on a case, asking Ryo to look after his much younger adoptive sister, Kaori. Kaori, a tomboyish {{Tsundere}} (who is of course BeautifulAllAlong) quickly takes her brother's place as Ryo's partner and business manager. She is decidedly unimpressed by Ryo's lecherous ways and often interrupts his seduction attempts. Despite this, the two quickly form a strong emotional bond - though Kaori is never sure whether Ryo's excuse for not acting on their easily noticed {{UST}} is really because ItsNotYouItsMyEnemies, or if her lecherous partner is just too damned horny to ever settle down.

* AnguishedDeclarationOfLove: [[DiscussedTrope Discussed]] and [[DeconstructedTrope deconstructed]]: [[spoiler: Ryo]] did declare his love for [[spoiler: Kaori]] when it appeared he would die on Kaibara's boat, but later couldn't be sure if he really loved her or if it actually was the instinctive need for reproduction that pops out whenever it appears you're about to die, and had to take advantage of [[spoiler: Kaori's]] temporary amnesia to try and reflect about his true feelings.

* BadassAdorable: Sure, Kaori and the younger girls in the cast qualify, but it's actually ''Ryo'' in particular who personifies this trope through his lovably frank TheCasanova ManChild behavior, coupled with a sweet and gentle sensitivity. Creator/AkiraKamiya sure is good at playing [[FistOfTheNorthStar sensitive and kind hearted badasses]], isn't he? * BaldOfAwesome: Umibozu is bald. He's strong enough to bring down a tree with a single punch or casually juggle with three grown men, so tough .38 Special bullets can barely wound him, so accurate he's a crack shot with both normal firearms and the bazooka [[spoiler: [[HandicappedBadass in spite of being near blind and later going fully blind]] ]], his abilities as demolitor and trapmaster are unmatched, and, in spite of being [[GentleGiant so tall he can barely stand in normal houses]], [[CrowningMomentOfFunny can successfully disguise himself as a duck]].

* {{BFG}}: A lot of them: Ryo uses a [[HandCannon Colt Python .357 Magnum]]; Kaori uses her brother's own Colt Python, but also makes use of [[MoreDakka gatling gun, bazooka, grenades and giant hammers]]; Umibozu has a S&W Model 29 (the original .44 Magnum revolver), even if he usually fires a [[NoKillLikeOverkill machine gun or a bazooka]]; Miki, being Umibozu's partner, has a tendence to draw the less ridiculously big guns in his closet, who [[SmallGirlBigGun are still quite big for anyone else's standards]]...

* BlackAndGreyMorality: Let's face it, Ryo is a criminal guilty of multiple counts of murder, perversion, vandalism, breaking and entering, theft, assault, and illegal carrying and ownership of guns (in Japan it's illegal to even ''hold'' a gun without licence, and you can't own pistols unless you're a member of the police or the Self-Defence Force), and Kaori, his accomplice, is guilty of the same crimes barring the first two (she only has a few counts of ''attempted'' murder). They are our heroes, and deal with worse people on a daily basis.

* ChekhovsGunman: Umibozu is introduced faceless as [[TheRival the only one who could match Ryo as a sweeper]]. When his face is finally revealed we see that Umibozu is the same killer that Ryo fooled into [[CrowningMomentOfFunny sitting on Hachiko's statue while holding a doll]] (manga only: the anime inverted the order of the episodes).

* CreatorCameo: Sort of. Where in ''Manga/CatsEye'' Hojo was a somewhat regular minor character ([[CrowningMomentOfFunny once getting mistaken for the Cat's Eye thieves]]), Hojo only appearance that doesn't break the Fourth Wall is Ryo standing on his grave. * {{Crossdresser}}: One of the movie's most highlighted point is about Ryo (JackieChan) crossdressing as [[StreetFighter Chun Li]].

* EmbarrassingNickName: A few. Umibozu (a kind of sea monster) was supposed to have the codename 'Falcon', but Ryo nicknamed him Umibozu and it supplanted the nickname. As retaliation, Ryo was nicknamed 'The Stallion of Shinjuku' (it didn't stuck, and Ryo has a better sense of humor than Umi). Finally, according to Ryo, the cop duo of Saeko and Hideyuki (former police officer) was known as 'The Beauty and the Beast of Tokyo Police' due their close partnership, great ability and looks.

* [[EverythingsBetterWithPrincesses Everything's Better With Princesses]]: A good number of stories involve the protection of princesses of [[HollywoodAtlas fictional eastern and island kingdoms]] from evil pretenders to the throne. And if they aren't princesses, then they're [[TheOjou Oujo]] of a rich Japanese family, with either {{EvilUncle}}s aiming for their heritage, or being in danger of [[DistressedDamsel being kidnapped]] for a ransom.

** [[JustifiedTrope Justified]] for Keibu Fumakuchi, a CorruptCop capable of shooting a woman-sized target at about 1 km: he's an ''Olympic shooting champion'', meaning he has both the skills and the training to do just that (it's a difficult shot for him, but he can pull it), to the point he's considered the best sniper in the world.

* ItMakesSenseInContext: [[InvokedTrope Invoked]] by Ryo in multiple occasions, telling about something he did but willingly leaving out the context. One example above everything, from Rosemary Moon's arc.

** Subverted by Umibozu: upon learning of Miki, Ryo accused him of both this and WifeHusbandry, but he didn't do it. [[DoubleSubversion At least non on purpose]].

** The most sadistic event happened right after the first chapter. Ryo had been hired to apprehend a serial killer specialized in raping and murdering teenagers and young women, so Ryo started making clear he knew his face and where he lived, placed a fake bomb in his car, and when he still refused to give himself up to the police Ryo shot him in the gun hand, the legs and the other shoulder with crossbow bolts that penetrated enough in the muscles to hurt ''a lot'' and short enough they were impossible to take out without cutting him open, all while giving him a AndThisIsFor speech, dedicating each bolt to every single girl the guy raped and killed. And when he still refused to give himself up (and instead tried to run over Ryo and his client) he got shot in the head with his own gun.

* MythologyGag: The cafe run by Umibozu and Miki is named "Manga/CatsEye". Later perfected when Kasumi Aso, a PhantomThief, left home and started living and working at the Cat's Eye (Miki hung a [[LampshadeHanging lampshade]] on this).

** It also got [[LampshadeHanging lampshaded]] in the second Union Teope arc: after finding out that Ryo had not left her behind to go into battle but was in the toilet, Kaori screamed at him that nobody had ever heard of an hero that goes to poop before the battle, only for Ryo to reply that it's the smart thing to do (and calling her constipated).

* NoKillLikeOverkill: Handguns chambered for magnum rounds are very much overkill against unarmored targets that aren't Umibozu, yet Ryo and co. use them almost exclusively. In a more typical example, Ryo once used a rifle chambered for .500 Nitro Express rounds (a hunting round created to take down big game such as buffalos, rhinoceros and ''elephants'') as part of a complicated scheme to [[KickTheSonOfABitch give a very humiliating death to a boxer who fixed his matches with threats and blackmail]], and [[LampshadeHanging took care of explaining how powerful it was beforehand]].

** Sayaka Ryujin's arc featured a free for all for the title, due the crazyness of all characters: Sayaka is left speechless at Ryo's antics (and her own inability to get rid of him) and at Kaori ''[[MuggingTheMonster kidnapping the guys she had sent to kidnap her]]'', Ryo and Kaori are unable to tell who's crazier between Sayaka (who tried ''everything'' to rid herself of Ryo) and her father (his reaction to Sayaka faking to seduce Ryo to get him in trouble with Kaori was crying: "Saeba! Why did you refuse my daughter?!"), and ''all of them'' look positively sane when [[BigBadWannabe Torakichi Seiken]] shows up with [[TheNapoleon enormous platform boots]] and tries to pass himself as a much bigger man (Sayaka actually [[FacePalm facepalmed]] when she realized the biker gang giving her trouble worked for Torakichi, and continued facepalming until Ryo recovered from the shock of having to deal with that idiot and his gang and mopped the floor with them).

* TheRival: Umibozu is Ryo's rival. During the story they're VitriolicBestBuds or, when finding themselves on opposing sides, FriendlyEnemies, but Ryo's American acquaintances revealed it's a fairly recent development and that they used to be {{Archfoes}}s.

* SoftGlass: Usually averted, as most people will break them before plowing through the window, and those thrown by Umibozu gets injuried by the glass (and other things). The only ones who are likely to pull this are Ryo and Umibozu, who are noted to be a lot stronger than most people.

* StockFootage: Barely ever used, but sometimes a particular shot of Ryo loading his pistol and snapping it shut is reused. More noticeably, often when the foreign girl of the week is flying back to her home country (or a local girl is leaving for whatever reason) the same shot of a ''[[{{Engrish}} SUNRISE AIR LINS]]'' jet taking off is used.

* WhatHappenedToTheMouse: The first chapter of the manga ends with [[CrowningMomentOfHeartwarming Ryo telling his cancer-ill client to not pay him with her life insurance but to allow him to be her man in her last days]], but we never see her again (she ''could'' be the woman who jumped Ryo in his home and considered himself his fiancee that appeared in the following story arc, but they acted very differently and OnlySixFaces didn't help).

** An even earlier and more notable case is Umibozu's terrible fear of cats, especially if they're [[TastesLikeDiabetes cute]] [[CuteKitten kittens]]. It leads to [[CrowningMomentOfFunny extremely funny scenes]], and to plot-point moments as well.

** A more noticeable example occurred whenever he had to fight large groups. While the target mooks would be drawn to match the mooks of the episode, Ryo was always depicted using the same five or six attacks(in still frames, no less!), often in the same sequence: among them, a rear kick, elbow to the chest, backfist, uppercut.
