* BloodKnight: Some of the Seven Spears have shades of this, most notably Ginshiro, Rennsuke and Koshichiro. Jubei has minor shades of this, as he really, really wants to fight Koshichiro and only takes the job tohelp the Hori women initially because he's thrilled by the notion of a challenge that might take his life.

* DramaticUnmask: During his confrontation with Dohaku and the remaining Spears, Jubei lifts his large straw hat to reveal he's [[SubvertedTrope still wearing his hannya mask under it]] (to the reader it even looks like it materialized between panels). The Spears are mad at this and soon cut the mask for real. As Jubei expected, they did know of his reputation.



* RapeIsASpecialKindOfEvil: Akinari stops at nothing to rape whatever woman he comes across and his henchmen constantly provide him with concubines to be abused and killed. At one point, they even force the concubines to rape men to death in order to spin rumors about Princess Sen. Then once they get to the Ashina clan's castle they find it similarly chock-full of disposable women, with Dohaku's daugther having been raised to enjoy raping and torturing men.



* UnholyMatrimony: They aren't married, but Akinari and Oyura fit the bill for a little while
* TheVamp: Oyura, Dohaku's daughter

* AlasPoorVillain:
** Once Jyonshin's final attack dog is fatally injured but still attempts to return to the Spears and inform them of the Hori's location, both Jubei and Takuan lament having to slay such loyal and expertly-trained animals.
** [[spoiler:Oyura takes a killing blow from her own father to save Jubei, who she had come to admire. Although he was disturbed by her earlier actions, Jubei is moved by her sacrifice and is last seen reflecting on how he has to pray for her soul.]]



* SingleStrokeBattle: How the battle between Jubei and [[spoiler:Koshichiro]] turns out. [[spoiler:Jubei takes a hit to the eye he already lacks and manages to seemingly deal a lot more damage to Koshichiro, who just stands there in complete shock until Jubei calls the Hori gals to finish him off.]]



* YouFools: Dohaku really lays into the surviving Spears for their carelessness.

Added DiffLines:

* PerpetualSmiler: Both Jubei and Takuan always have a sly smirk on their faces.


Added DiffLines:

* SlashedThroat: An amusing use of this is when Jubei puts his sword against the neck of a guard he's interrogating and then spins him around, just barely avoiding to outright kill him.

Takuan.
* BaldOfEvil: IchiganboIchiganbo.



* EmbarrassingNickname: The Hori women ask Takuan to name a pet bird they had been entrusted with. Takuan names it "Shichirou" since they're seven (shichi) women, but Jubei suddenly asks for a recount. Takuan then makes fun of him, remembering Shichirou was Jubei's own nickname when he was a child.



* FanDisservice: any sex scene with Akinari and Oyura is just...creepy.

* GagNose: Twin brothers Tenkai and Dohaku have noses nearly as long as their heads.



* GoOutWithASmile: [[spoiler: Priest Tenkai dies smiling, content that he's defeated Dohaku at last.]]. Also a villainous example in [[spoiler: Rennsuke, who realizes that Jubei Yagyu is his true enemy and killed, after Oshina and Otori mortally wound him. He dies content at being defeated by Japan's greatest swordsman.]]

Added DiffLines:

* OffWithHisHead: Dohaku orders three of his female slaves to be beheaded and puts them on public display to provoke Takuan. In response, Takuan and Jubei kill three of his soldiers and place their heads in the same spot while also warning the population of the Ashinas' evil. Dohaku then beheads 5 women. And Takuan chops 7 mooks. 10 poor women. 13 bad guys. At this point even Akinari thinks things are going too far when Dohaku orders the deaths of 15 more slaves.


Added DiffLines:

* SelfMutilationDemonstration: After Takuan outwits Dohaku and the Spears and is allowed to pass through their territory while clearly hiding the Hori women, Dohaku "apologizes" for the disrespect of his fellows by commiting seppuku, impaling his own chest. Takuan becomes unnerved by how it clearly doesn't fatally injure Dohaku.
