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.

One of many series by the prolific and much-loved 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.

* 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.

* EvilWeapon: In one chapter, Dororo and Hyakkimaru come across a stray samurai who has been driven to kill by his demonically-possessed sword 'Nihil' ("[[NamesToRunAwayFromReallyFast Resembling Leech]]", and it wouldn't be surprising if Tezuka intended for there to be a BilingualBonus). See, 'Nihil' [[HearingVoices talks to its owner]], saying 'I need to drink blood, I need to drink blood', and it appears to work on anyone - even Dororo.

* AdaptationalBadass: Dororo in the original manga and anime? Cocky little thief who can take a hit from a human adult, and give one right back, but is no match for the supernatural threats Hyakkimaru eats for breakfast. Dororo in ''Blood Will Tell''? Can and will ''beat the twenty asses of any boss dumb enough to get within range of his mighty plum-sized fists'' (a slight exaggeration, but he is completely able to hack down a significant portion of their health bar on his own).
