* WhatTheHellHero: A particularly painful one occurs toward the end of the first series: [[spoiler: Shosuke, Gen, and the other peasant leaders have surrendered themselves to the local authorities and are being conveyed to a stronghold to be tortured. Along the way, Matsubayashi Kenpu and Minazuki Ukon attack the caravan and engage in a desperate battle with the troops escorting the prisoners. Against all odds, Matsubayashi manages to slash his way through scores of guards and free the captives from their cages. He urges them to run for their lives only to have them remain stoically on the spot, with Shosuke exclaiming "even if th revolt is over, our fight begins here." Clearly they have decided to martyr themselves. [[PoorCommunicationKills Too bad noone told Matsubayashi who winds up dying in vain]]. And he is NOT pleased about it.]]

* WouldntHurtAChild: This trope is not so much subverted as hanged, drawn and quartered. In the wake of the peasant uprisings, small children are executed alongside their families.

* GratuitousNinja: Very much so, though in the second series, you have to wait for hundreds of pages before a ninja even makes an appearance.

* AsLethalAsItNeedsToBe: Many characters use a technique called "mine-uchi" (striking an oponent with the blunt side of the blade) to knock out their foes: [[spoiler: Nishiki Tanba does it to Ryunoshin; Ryunoshin in turn uses it on a whole mob of wayward samurai. Conversely, Atena's failure to perform a non-lethal mine-uchi on an unruly peasant gets her killed by an angry mob.]]

* The Original Manga/KamuiDen, hereafter referred to as "the first series" was serialized in Garo from 1964 to 1971. * From the original Manga/KamuiDen came the more youth-friendly spinoff, KamuiGaiden, which ran in Shonen Sunday from 1965 to 1967 and was thus concurrent with the main series. It set aside the huge cast and increasingly Byzantine plotlines of the original series to focus on the adventures of the protagonist, Kamui. This series was also the basis for the 1969 animated TV series.

* Finally, the second series of Manga/KamuiDen ran from 1988 to 2000 in Big Comics. It picks up more or less where the original series had left off back in 1971.

* AmbiguouslyGay: Nowhere more ambiguously that with Ryunoshin and his young charge Miyagi Onya. Initially, the latter approaches Ryunoshin requesting that he become his "nenja" (a kind of mentor figure, but like the erastes of ancient Greece, with strong gay overtones). Ryunoshin says he has no interest in "shudo" (male pederasty), but recognizing the young man's purity of heart, accepts his request to form a special bond (chigiri) together. Of course, Shirato had to go and muddy the waters further by saying in a recap, that the two characters shared a bond of "shudo," which all but explictly labels them as gay lovers. Certain characters within the manga also seem to think their relationship swings this way. As they are never shown engaing in anything beyond mildly affectionate behaviour, it would seem they are in a platonic gay relationship...maybe.

* KarmicDeath: [[spoiler: The despised feudal lord who raped Mine and hacked up her body out of spite is ambushed by Sasa Ikkaku while his retainers are carrying his litter across a stream. Long story short: he takes a katana up the rectum.]]

He has time to smile at his horrified captors before collapsing.]]

* SmugSnake: The Hioki Clan overseer, Tachibana Gundayu takes a little too much satistfaction on his own machinations, which often involve using the peasant ninja operative Yokome to create unrest among the various castes of peasants in a series of divide and conquer schemes.

* FanDisservice: In one scene in the second series, a Yagyu swordsman demonstrates proper cutting technique one the naked corpse of a shapely young woman. Cue {{Gorn}}.

** The second series also has one particularly stomach-churning scene in which a master swordsman demonstrates proper cutting techniques on recently dead corpses. It is anatomically...thorough.

* MeaningfulName: Kamui shares his name with a god of the Ainu people (one of Japan's indigenous races).

* PaperThinDisguise: In the second series, Ryunoshin's face-shading hat prevents other characters from identifying him long after the reader has.
