* 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.

* RapeIsASpecialKindOfEvil: Apparently Itto doesn't think so or doesn't care. At one point he sits and watches a young woman being ''raped to death'' He has in fact contracted to kill the bandits responsible but apparently decides it's not the right time to strike.

* RapeIsASpecialKindOfEvil: Apparently Stomache-churningly averted -- apparently Itto doesn't think so or doesn't care. At one point he sits and watches a young woman being ''raped to death'' without evincing any concern. He has in fact contracted to kill the bandits responsible but apparently decides it's not the right time to strike.
