One of many series by the prolific and much-loved Creator/OsamuTezuka, ''Dororo'' is the tale of Hyakkimaru, a wandering swordsman who bears an odd burden: he was born without most of his body parts (including eyes, ears, a tongue, and limbs) thanks to his father [[DealWithTheDevil striking a deal with forty-eight demons]]. [[MosesInTheBullrushes Abandoned and raised by a country doctor]], Hyakkimaru learned to use his sixth sense to compensate for his lacking the other five, but eventually discovered his condition made him a magnet for supernatural weirdness.

* IThoughtItMeant: This show has nothing to do with [[KeroroGunsou a certain froglike alien keeping the earth's environment safe while his friends are trying to invade it.]]
* {{Kick The Dog}}: Surprisingly not the demons (despite taking Hyakkimaru's body parts and terrorizing medieval Japan), but the human warlord Kisoji in regards to his warhorse. When he finds the horse, Midoro, tending to her foal, he forcibly separates them, believing that a warhorse can't afford to be tender. He sells the colt to a nearby farmer so she won't be distracted and beats her whenever she mopes on the battlefield. Is it any surprise that she allows a demon to possess her dying body to get revenge on humanity? But not before trampling Kisoji for his mistreatment of her.

Tezuka notoriously ended the manga before Hyakki had a chance to get most of his parts back, but there have since been a few anime adaptations, a HackAndSlash videogame for the PlayStation2 by Creator/{{Sega}} and Creator/RedEntertainment (released in English as ''Blood Will Tell'', and hereafter referred to as such on this very wiki to avoid confusion with other adaptations) and a rather bizarre series of LiveActionAdaptation movies that moves the setting from the Sengoku Era to a suspiciously similar post-apocalyptic future. The 1969 anime adaptation was licensed by Creator/DiscotekMedia for a Region 1 DVD release.

* AdaptationalHeroism: ''Blood Will Tell'' has a minor case with Hyakkimaru's father. In the game, Hyakkimaru is a foretold "child of light" who would bring an end to the reign of fiends. To prevent this, demons seduce his father with promises of power if he would sacrifice his son. After Hyakkimaru is born with much of his body missing, his father has a change of heart and flees with him. In the manga, the father makes a deal with the demons at his own initiative to gain power, and is thrilled to see Hyakkimaru's mangled body after he is born, as that means the contract is fulfilled. There is also nothing about Hyakkimaru being a foretold chosen one in the manga.
