* ActualPacifist:[[spoiler: This is what killed Ryoma Sakamoto. After defeated by Azuma, Ryoma refuses to draw his blade despite being roughly on Izumi's power/skill level... which is definitely enough to CurbStomp the Shogunate {{Mooks}} sent to kill him.]]

* BadassFamily: Hoo yeah.Every family generally has a badass of their own, but naturally Mutsu family has the most. What's with having Enmei-ryuu and all... on the other hand, the Yagyu family has a lot of badasses too. Miyamoto's son Iori was more akin to a stepson, but it can make the Miyamoto 'family' count too.



** To a lesser scale, both Miyamoto Iori and YagyuJubei are this. Takato's arc is chock full of them too (justified since it is a kendo tournament).

* DefeatByModesty: Tsubura was defeated and captured by a group of ninja due to two things: first, she ran out of kunai, second, she had taken off her underwear while she was urinating thus limiting her movement options (a little on the FridgeLogic side too; wouldn't it be dark enough not to give away much details?).



* HeirToTheDojo: All of the Mutsu male who carried the infamous blade is an Enmei-ryuu successor. It does [[FridgeLogic raise a question]] on how ''Azuma'' brought one to America -- the successor of the time should be Izumi, and the present line of Mutsu descended from him.

* ImprobableAimingSkills: Azuma is very skilled with thrown weapons, all in his speed of draw, accuracy, and power. His skill is such that he can accurately ''aim for and hit the hilt of a revolver on some mook's hand'', impressing Wyatt Earp in the process.

* LegendaryImpostor: Tsubura has shades of this. To elaborate, she poses and picks fights as a Mutsu to gain attention of the shogunate, hoping that she will be invited to the kendo tournament and get within striking distance to Tokugawa Iemitsu. While not a total hogwash, she was seeded to meet Jubei in the next round. When it is clear that she can't win, she sprung her plan anyway, with disastrous results.
