* BlondeGuysAreEvil: Harada. Okay, ''evil'' might be a strong word to describe him (although he ''is'' a {{Yakuza}}), but he is an antagonist, and supposedly blonde.

''Ten - The Blessed Way of the Nice Guy'' is an earlier series by the creator of ''{{Akagi}}'' and ''{{Kaiji}}'', Fukumoto Nobuyuki.

Takashi Ten is called to a {{Mahjong}} club one night to play against a young mahjong player. Having just robbed Ten's friends blind at mahjong, Ten arrives to take back his winnings. Ten's mahjong style becomes more apparent as the game progresses...amateurish! Ten cheats in the last round, using a move called the Tsubame Gaeshi, and winning with a Tenhou hand. Hiroyuki is angered once Ten admits he cheated after the game. Ten is a friendly guy who happens to be good at Mahjong. Or, more appropriately, good at cheating at Mahjong. If someone is betting on a Mahjong game and ends up in a pinch, they call Ten to win for them. He always does, and because he understands how frustrating it is, always has the courtesy to give the people he cheats against a chance to beat him up. With his friends Hiroyuki, Ken, {{Akagi}}, and others, he eventually decides to take on something much bigger than cheating in small gambles.

**In fact, Ten gives Hiroyuki [[TheReasonYouSuckSpeech a scolding]], because Hiroyuki didn't cheat at a time when nobody could have caught him.

* AGoodWayToDie: Even though [[spoiler: Akagi]] takes his own life rather than waste away by a terminal illness, his method of death is painless and peaceful. Not only that he invites the men closest to him to see him individually one last time. Each man discussed how they felt about the situation but by and large received closure. In the end [[spoiler: Akagi]] died fulfilled with no regrets being able settle things with the people closest to him. If you are someone who fears death, you need to read this part of the manga. You will find that afterwards, death might just be a little less scary.

** ''WashizuLordOfMahjongHell'', which is about the BigBad from ''Akagi'' in his younger days. It wasn't written nor drawn by Fukumoto (although he is credited as an assistant since he owns the characters), so its canonical status is debatable. Creator/{{CLAMP}} also made a 4-page gag manga that was about Washizu.

* WhiteHairedPrettyBoy: Aside from the wrinkles, Akagi has aged fairly well and is still a MagnificentBastard to the bone.
