* [[GenericCuteness Generic Handsomeness/Beauty]] - Kenshiro and his friends, ex-villains who renounced their evil ways, and even [[PunchClockVillain punch clock villains]] with [[FromACertainPointOfView reasonably good]] intentions are all portrayed as handsome or beautiful whereas fundamentally-dishonorable personalities are disturbingly intimidating at best and comically ugly at worst; but Tetsuo Hara is not for judging people's characters by their appearances- rather he is for judging people's appearances by their characters, with Zhāng Tài-Yán being perhaps the best example. The viewers know it's the same person with the same visual features, but Zhāng still managed to look significantly different before and after he made the transition into an [[TheAtoner Atoner]].

** It should also be noted that most of the villains he forgiven such as Zhang Tai-Yanand and Liu Zong Wu are practitioners of Hokuto styles, with several destined to later impact the world and have a facedown with Hokuto Shinken. Some even became their own respective style's successors. So its justified Kasumi forcgive them and overlook their terrible crimes because of the destiny and burdens Hokuto Shinken puts on its successor and because the traditions of the Hokuto styles rules that eventually Hokuto Shinken would have to be tested every new generation against the other Hokuto offsprings. In fact Liu Zong Wu is the successor to Hokuto Ryuuken, the very style Hokuto Shinken was destined to clash with in HokutoNoKen's timeline.

* SlidingScaleOfIdealismVersusCynicism: More cynical compared to the sequel, HokutoNoKen, in spite of being set in a shiny city of Shanghai. TheHero is helping his best friend - a drug lord, to take over the entire city by eliminating a gang that is even worse than theirs. There are also much fewer villains who receive redemption than in HokutoNoKen.

* ColonelBadass: Charles de Giese. To the point he's the only man in the series who's occupation is not primarily a martial artist, mercenary, criminal, or some other unorthodox (probably illegal) job and who isn't destined succeed a style but still capable of going toe-to-toe with Hokuto martial artists and hold on his own.



* MightyWhitey - French Colonel Charles [=DeGuise=], who somehow manages to be a Master of the "Hokuto Sun Family Fist" after under a decade of study.
** His Hokuto techniques aren't very good, though, and [[spoiler:he eventually gets killed by Fei-Yan.]]
