* '''Exploited''': ???Kodachi draws attention to herself so people figure that she's only pretending to be a ninja, since [[NoTrueScotsman no real ninja]] [[WhatAnIdiot would purposely draw attention to themself]]. Failing that, [[ObfuscatingStupidity it causes people to believe that she's an incompetent ninja]], allowing her to take them by surprise.

** Except it turns out everyone thinks this is so lame, they ignore her and no one notices when she kills a target.

** Kodachi's outfit glows in the dark, and is reflective to boot. * '''Deconstructed''': Kodachi's showboating and acting out quickly gets her killed, as she's an obvious threat and easily disposed of. * '''Reconstructed''': ** Kodachi can ''afford'' to be an AttentionWhore because it turns out she's ''Just That Good''. She's insanely skilled, and fully, infuriatingly aware of it -- hence she's repeatedly sent on missions both due to her skills and because she's so loud and annoying her superiors hate having her around. ** Or she's so good that she's gotten bored and is deliberately making things more challenging for herself. ** Because she is so obvious, no one believes that she could be a ninja and people treat her as a wacko. In other words, she is hiding in plain sight. ** Her highly visible style (and constant successes) cultivate her reputation to the point where all she has to do is show up and announce her target, and the target will commit {{seppuku}} on the spot, because he knows that he's doomed.

They're ''supposed'' to be RedShirts, an ''acceptable loss'' so that their '''real''' agents go undetected and can fulfill their missions. Learning this causes Kodachi to have a HeroicBSOD and prompts her to defect from her guild and join the protagonists.

* '''Justified''': It's estabilished in canon that all the enemies Kodachi fights are The Creatures Of The Darkness who can be literally blinded by the bright colours. Other characters don't adapt Kodachi's tactics because as a result of some curse they can't wear bright colours.

* '''Subverted''': While every building and person in the setting wears bright neon and likes to pretend to be ninja (which would make a straight application of this trope justified), Kodachi wears the typical all black ninja garb, effectively standing out by ''not'' standing out.
