** Averted when Itto takes an assignment to kill a revered Buddhist priest. Although not being a warrior, the priest still has an aura so powerful that no one with ill intent can come close enough to touch him... Not even Itto. Leads to Itto [[TookALevelInBadass taking a level in badass]] (if that's even possible) by withdrawing to the mountains to meditate and fast for over a week, while leaving Daigoro alone with food. Briefly interrupted only by a small group of hungry wolves (which he slays with his bare hands) Itto returns enlightened and able to suppress his negative energy output. He is then able to kill without bloodlust. The priest compliments Itto on his accomplishment right before Itto apologizes and splits him from scalp to sternum.
** Correction: the priest compliments him AFTER Itto splits him from scalp to sternum.

* BlackAndGreyMorality: In this story, there are the bad guys and the morally complex guys. Other than Daigoro, the rare genuinely innocent person tends to die horribly shortly after being introduced.

* ObfuscatingStupidity: Headless Sakon in the chapter "Half Mat, One Mat, a Fistful of Rice". His reckless behaviour (renting himself out for target practice) and odd, lazy-eyed face makes him seem stupid, perhaps even mentally challenged. In fact he is one of the wisest and most morally upright people in the story.

* HeWhoFightsMonsters: Itto's blind quest for vengeance makes him suitable for this trope. Considering that he's willingly endangering his only child and is more concerned with avenging his tainted name than his [[WomenInRefrigerators murdered wife]], he may qualify as a VillainProtagonist. Near the end of the series he seems to get increasingly tired of killing (sometimes going so far as to shed ManlyTears after cutting down a few dozen people), but by then he's too close to completing his revenge to stop.
