* EarlyInstallmentWeirdness: In the chapter after Sanosuke is introduced, Kenshin is shown to have the ability to sense people's chi, and chi is later used to explain Udo Jin-e's paralysis power. After that Chi, and the ability to read it, is never mentioned again.

* TheMenFirst: Aoshi took the job bodyguarding Kanryu because while he had better offers from more respectable sources, that job was the only one that included positions for the last squad of his unit, who were essentially unemployable for various reasons, and he believed that he couldn't seek a new life for himself until he had seen to all of the men under his command.

* ForgotAboutHisPowers: In the anime filler, Kenshin, during his fight against the Black Knight Meldars, seemed to forget that he had the Doryusen at his disposal, along with several other moves, which could have easily enabled him to take down the German knight(while easily knocking him off his horse) and not get beaten to an inch of his life.

* HistoricalHeroUpgrade: Saito again, [[AntiHero for certain values of hero]]. While the man was indeed BadAss, we know very little about him otherwise. In the manga, he claims to have given up on drinking, while in actual history he died of a stomach tumor from said drinking.

* JidaiGeki: A {{deconstruction}} that asks: "So what happens to all those BadAss swordsmen after they've been outmoded by technology and a shift in societal mores?"[[note]]The surprisingly accurate answer, of course, is that "a lot of them were ''bored as hell'' and this was not a particularly safe period to live in." It never got ''quite'' this epic in real life, but it was still pretty brutal at times.[[/note]]
