* ElementalPowers: Sort of: the techniques of the Ogame Ryuu are divided in five "forms": [[ShockAndAwe Thunder]], [[PlayingWithFire Flame]], [[DishingOutDirt Earth]], [[MakingASplash Water]] and [[ThePowerOfTheVoid Sky]]. However they're just referring to the sword style, and have nothing of magical at all. To be really specific:
** Ikazuchi no Kata (Thunder and Lightning Form): Focus on [[LightningBruiser speed]].
** Kagutsuchi no Kata (Blazing Flame Form): Focus on [[CharlesAtlasSuperpower strength]].
** Oboro no Kata (Hollow Space Form): Focus on [[NonchalantDodge dodging attacks.]]
** Mizuchi no Kata (Water Dragon Form): Focus on tricky attacks.
** Doukou no Kata (Earth Lord Form): Focus on both [[MightyGlacier attack and defense]].
** [[spoiler: Kamui no Kata (Divine Power Form): The ultimate counterattack technique that can [[OneHitKill kill the enemy in one blow, and was taught to Gama by Kashitarou]].]]

* BigDamnHeroes: Zenmaru saves Naoyoshi from an assassin. Later, Gama pop up just in time to save Zenmaru from Jaki. [[spoiler: Post TimeSkip, Kashitarou saves Zenmaru from Kiyomori.]]

* BladeOnAStick: Several Ryuu use spears of various kinds as their WeaponOfChoice, including the Myojin Ryuu and Ganen Ryuu. The first Ryuu faced by Gama was the Tengen Ryuu of Baian Maki, a master in the use of the naginata. Later they fight the "Four Divine Spears" of the Myojin Ryuu, who all wields special spears. Amongst the Muhou Ryu members, Riichiro Hanamura and the former members of the Shujin Ryu fight with halbeards, while Ango and the former Gaun Ryu warriors are armed with Nagamaki.

* BreakableWeapons: Gama break his longsword many times. Justified, as the swords from the Edo and Muromachi periods were often mass-produced and thus of inferior quality compared to the older katana.

* ButtMonkey: Zenmaru, who's often compared to a monkey. In the other schools we could classify Eima Yakushiji (Tengen Ryuu) and Ichiou Jinno (Myojin Ryuu).
* CallingYourAttacks: Averted! At least, the characters don't scream the name of their current attack, but it does appear around them while they're performing it for the audience's benefit. Basically is more like "Thinking Your Attacks".

* DualWielding: Averted by the Ogame Ryuu: they do carry around two sword, but only use one of them at time. Agon and Hakuryu dual wields axes, and Masato's Souen Ryuu focuses on using both the longsword and the shortsword. According to him, this style offers a great defense. Later, Ichida Maruyama wields the twin blades Aogasumi, Sekiryu and Seirin dual wields [[WhipItGood Iron Whips]] while [[spoiler: Muraku Matsumoto's secret weapon consist in him using two weigthed chains in battle.]]

* EpicFlail: The Kasanemanji Ryuu specialize in the use of Kusarigama (chain and sickle). Specifically, Jaki's secret weapon looks a lot like an european medieval flail. Chuuji of the Muhou School also employs a flail as his trump card.

* ExoticWeaponSupremacy: Ryuu involved in "foreign martial styles" are mentioned. So far they're all members of the Muhou Ryu and include Suzunosuke Mamiya (rapier), Riichiro and the former Soujin School members (halbeards) and the corps who attacked Gama inside the inner city, whose weaponry include flanged maces, iron whips and scimitars. Tsuchiryuu dual wields Chinese Deer Horn Daggers.
* EyeScream: Gama does this to [[GiantMook Junnosuke]] and (almost) Baian of the Tengen Ryuu. Muraku is seen doing this to the Tamagakushi {{mooks}}. In shorts, there are plenty of examples.

* ShaggyDogStory: [[spoiler: Zenmaru's whole objective since his appearence was to become strong enough to surpass even his brother Kai, but still cared for him and wanted him to live. When he finally manages to prove his strength by killing Mario Kujou, his brother, who was severly injured in the battle due to an HeroicSacrifice, can only compliment him for surpassing him before dying in front of him.]]

* AnachronismStew: Agon's axe attack is named "Tomahawk" (which is a weapon only used by American Indians) and Kashitarou wears what seems to be perfectly functioning modern glasses. (Yes, glasses has been around since 1100 at least, but his look too much modern by comparison.)

* {{Ninja}}: Some Ryuu practice Ninjustsu, namely the Mugen Ryuu, Jouchi Ryuu and the Tamagakushi Ryuu. The last one also averts the HighlyVisibleNinja stereotype and actually use realistic ninja techniques. Inside the Muhou Ryuu we have Tsuchiryuu and the rarely seen Shinkuu.
