* AManIsNotAVirgin: Averted. While there are examples of powerful characters in the series such as Ittosai getting laid, Musashi is still a virgin and an incredibly badass paragon of masculinity and spiritual enlightenment. Matahachi, on the other hand, has slept around with plenty of women but this is portayed as a result of him being weak-willed and giving into fleeting pleasures as opposed to doing something meaningful with his life.

* CastofSnowflakes: Every character looks so different from the other in terms of body type and facial features that it's pretty much impossible to mistake one for the other.

* TranquilFury: In one instance, while Kojiro is visiting a prostitute, her pimp walks in and starts berating and abusing her, and ends up killing her pet frog. Kojiro confronts the man with a calm, flat expression on his face (contrasted with his usual joyous expression), and cuts him open with a [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sasaki_Kojir%C5%8D#Swallow_Cut tsubame gaeshi]] in a blink of the eye.

* ThePerilsOfBeingTheBest: The manga spends a ''lot'' of time exploring this theme. Any swordsman who makes a name for himself becomes a target for every glory seeking wannabe around. The psychological weight of this takes a toll on several figures (including Shinmen Munisai, who becomes unhinged and paranoid, Tsujikaze Kōhei, who goes from being a BloodKnight to becoming completely burned out on fighting and killing as he challenged repeatedly by samurai, etc.)

** It is not hard for Yoshiokas to be more sympathetic compared to Musashi. [[DesignatedHero After all, he killed them all]] [[ValuesDissonance for personal glory]].
** A certain degree of BlueAndOrangeMorality is in play as abandoning the duels with Denscichiro and the rest of the Yoshiokas might have let them live... horribly disheartened and dishonored by the fact that he had taken pity on them, ''especially'' [[spoiler:after the second, fatal, and ''public'' duel with Denshichiro]] (after which townspeople were already muttering about the end of the Yoshioka). The actual battle is portrayed as Musashi's way of thanking them for the strength he gained (as everything he experienced stemmed from the year's time he was granted by Denshichiro to become stronger after their first duel) by seeing his battle with them all the way through to the end.

* CharacterDevelopment: Most notably for Musashi and Jisai, but ''heavily'' subverted with Matahachi. A good argument could be made that watching the characters grow is the entire point of the series.
