*AnimationBump: The 1989 movie "3.57 Magnum", which utilizes noticeably more fluent and well-toned animation than the anime's typical episodes. Of course, the improved animation quality also allows Ryo's mokkori antics and Kaori's subsequent punishment of him to be taken UpToEleven.
**The first six episodes of the anime itself have superior animation quality to the rest of the show (sans a few episodes at the beginning of the second season, which have even better animation) with a higher attention to realistic tone and movements. Unfortunately averted by the end of the second season, however, where the anime's art style begins to take on a [[ArtEvolution more generic appearance]] and the movements become more stilted.



* CanonImmigrant / {{Expy}}: Mick Angel is based on the anime-only character Robert Harrison, an old partner of Ryo from the US who arrived in Japan to kill Ryo's current client. They have different names and clothes, and Rick favors the Walther P-38 over Mick's Desert Eagle, but for the rest they're practically the same. Even [[LetsYouAndHimFight the way they say 'hi']] is pretty much the same, even if Hojo cranked it UpToEleven.

* AnguishedDeclarationOfLove: {{Discussed|Trope}} and {{deconstructed|Trope}}: [[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.

* ChekhovsGun: When Makimura was killed by a victim of the [[PsychoSerum Angel Dust]] Ryo reacted badly to the mention of the drug, and was astonishingly well-informed on its effects and its makers of Union Teope in spite of them being newcomers in Japan (and him having never heard the name before Hideyuki mentioned it). Near the end of the story it's discovered that [[spoiler: Ryo was the original test subject of Angel Dust, and the founder and leader of Union Teope was his adopted father]].

* CoolAndUnusualPunishment: In one story arc [[ItMakesSenseInContext Ryo had been made impotent by the antidote to the poison of a killer bee]]. At the end of said story arc (and after a successive version of the antidote restored Ryo's GagPenis), Ryo punished the ones who had the killer bees created by having them stung with the killer bees and giving them the initial version of the antidote, with obvious results. Doubles as FateWorseThanDeath, as they were as much perverted as Ryo.

* TheDreaded: Ryo and Umibozu are quite feared among other sweepers and criminal groups in general. So far we've seen yakuzas and thugs running when they realize they're facing the goddamn City Hunter (the list includes a yakuza boss who switched from being very sure of victory to begging for forgiveness as soon as he realized who his son had provoked and a hitman who didn't fear Umibozu (as he knew his one weak spot) almos shitting himself when he realized he was facing City Hunter too), Kaori plainly admitting she's terrified of Umibozu (that was even before she found out who he was), and people being terrified of Umibozu due his sheer size and tendency to bring down trees with a punch when he's pissed.

* 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.

* [[EvenEvilHasStandards Even Hedonism Has Standards]]: Ryo will never try and seduce a minor, no matter how sexy she is. If she's sexy he'll take a few peeks, but never touch. Of course, if the girl grows up she becomes fair game... And he once tried to groom a ten-years old girl to grow up in love with him (he renounced because he lacked the patience. She still fell for him).

Of course, at the end of the story arc Ryo's GagPenis had been restored by a perfected antidote, and the villains had been made impotent in the same way without having access to the perfected antidote.

** This extends only to the bad guys whoses voices are way to ridiculous to sound remotely scary, However the main character's voices are spot on. This was because the series was too serious and violent for a kid show ( Or at least it was aired in hours when kids most likely watch tv. ). The movies are exempt of this.

* GoodGunsBadGuns: Subverted: the characters tend to use guns that work, with the interesting result of the villain Silver Fox using exclusively two ''"good"'' guns (the Remington Model 700 rifle and the Browning Hi-Power) specifically because they're among the best weapons on the market for their job (the Model 700 being a very accurate rifle and the basis for two military sniper rifles, and [[CoolGuns the Hi-Power being one of the best pistols ever]]).

*** In the same arc, Ryo proved himself superior to Fumakuchi by ''shooting the barrel of his rifle at the same distance''. Fumakuchi told himself that ''nobody'' could pull that shot and it had been a fluke, only for Ryo to do it ''again'', [[SerialEscalation following with Fumakuchi's belt and the buttons of his shirt]], and concluding with calling the Olympic Games a contest between amateur (and they are, in fact) and [[BadassBoast bragging being the best]] ''[[BadassBoast professional]]'' [[BadassBoast sniper in the world, superior to any Olympic champion]].

In the manga version [[TheDragon the General]] wasn't killed in a duel immediatly after he appeared, but had his beloved jewelry invaded by pigs (that he hates) and the jewels eaten by said pig, his [[WickedCultured beloved art collection]] destroyed and the money he was supposed to bring to [[BigBad his boss]] stolen from under his nose (with Ryo declaring he could kill him whenever he wanted and purposefully leaving him alive) before their duel. Ryo had already declared himself the most sadistic person in Japan since after destroying the art collection.

* DarkerAndEdgier: The first two volumes of the manga (and thus the first 7-9 episodes of the anime, which adapted material from these volumes) are considerably darker than the rest of the series (up until the final manga volume, when the darker tone returns), with fewer mokkori antics (Ryo is general is far more subdued in his perversions than later in the series, often merely touching a woman's legs as opposed to the full-throttle 'mokkori pounce' he later becomes known for), a darker, quieter atmosphere (with few gags, more moments devoid of any dialogue, several [[TearJerker Tear Jerker]] moments and Ryo actually having to kill the antagonists at the end of each story, instead of disarming them), a grittier, more realistic tone (probably due to the absence of Kaori's [[{{Tsundere}} 100-ton hammer]]), Ryo facing [[CompleteMonster legitimate criminals]] as is more realistic for a 'sweeper' and more accurate to the real-life underworld (silencers murdering innocents, Arabian arms dealers, a syndicate freezing young womens' bodies for use as store-window mannequins and most famously the Central American drug organization [[BigBad Union Teope (Red Pegasus in the anime))]] instead of henchmen or lackeys as is common later in the series and a more subdued art style, making greater use of realistic angles, designs and tone and less of cartoonish expressions and character designs (Ryo donning his later perverted grin is rare in earlier manga stories and only appears in one of the first five episodes of the anime).
