* HumiliationConga: Retsudo's schemes may have destroyed the Ogami clan, but Itto manages to get some serious payback. Over the course of the series, [[spoiler: he kills ''every single one'' of Retsudo's children, even Retsudo's illegitimate son and daughter, slaughters all of the Kurokuwa ninja clan and, for a time at least, completely destroys the Shogun's faith in Retsudo to the point that Retsudo is publicly snubbed at a very important ceremony (so important, in fact, that had it been ''anyone'' but Retsudo, the result would have been instant seppuku). Even after that, Itto kills all of the remaining Yagyu forces and finishes by slaughtering every last one of the Kusa ninja that the Yagyu had spent ''generations'' planting into domains throughout the country. By the end of the story though, Retsudo has managed to win back the Shogun's trust and respect and he technically wins his duel with Itto. If he hadn't allowed Daigoro to run him through with his spear, it would have ended in complete victory for Retsudo.]]

The original manga was published from 1970 to 1976. The series has been adapted into several movies and a live-action TV series in Japan. An English-dubbed "[[{{Macekre}} adaptation]]" of the movies was released in 1980 as ''Shogun Assassin''. Creator/{{AnimEigo}} has released both subtitled and dubbed versions of the films. A sequel called ''Shin Kozure Ōkami'', written by Koike with Hideki Mori doing the art (since Goseki Kojima died in 2000), is currently running in Japan; DarkHorseComics began publishing the English localization in 2014, under the title of ''New Lone Wolf and Cub''.

''Lone Wolf and Cub'' (''Kozure Ōkami'') is an iconic {{manga}} created by Kazuo Koike and Goseki Kojima, describing the adventures of Ogami Ittō, former executioner for the Shogun, and his son Daigorō. Ittō, after being framed for treason against the Shogunate by the Yagyū clan, faced a choice between [[{{Seppuku}} death]] and [[PillarsOfMoralCharacter dishonor]]. Instead, Ittō [[TakeAThirdOption Took A Third Option]]: abandon ''bushidō'' to follow ''"Meifumado"'' - roughly, either "the way of the demon" or "the road to hell". He would become a {{ronin}} [[ProfessionalKiller assassin]], WalkingTheEarth while planning his vengeance. And his son Daigorō, due to a SecretTestOfCharacter from his father, now follows the same bloody road.

* WeaponizedCar: Or at least as close as you could get for that time and age. [[spoiler:Daigoro's babycart is a rolling armory of concealed knives, spears, spring-loaded blades, a multi-barreled rifle and steel plated bottom (which works quite well as a bulletproof shield). The cart is profiled enough to nearly qualify as a third protagonist throughout the early series.]]

Added DiffLines:

** More to the point, Itto's abandonment of Bushido does not stop him from exploiting Bushido by preying upon his enemies' adherence to it. He won't hesitate to call out an opponent who is behaving dishonorably, usually because forcing the enemy to abide by honorable conduct puts ''Itto'' in a more advantageous position in a given situation.
