* BlatantLies: The first edition supplement "The Merchant's Guide to Rokugan" is nothing but this. [[spoiler: It has about one page of discussion of economics as cover. The rest of the book is material on the Kolat.]]

* SandBridgeAtLowTide: It includes a location in Crab Clan lands called the "Tidal Landbridge" which... [[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin is what you'd expect]]. Inevitably, it is best known for an incident in which a Crab Clan army and reinforcements from their Crane Clan rivals fought a group of Shadowlands invaders until the tide came back in [[KillEmAll with inevitable results]].

* UnreliableNarrator: The First and Second Edition RPG sourcebooks were all written from the subjective, in-universe point of view of the Clan that was the primary focus of the book. This was done for flavor, and to give the GM the freedom to determine what was true and what wasn't. This approach was abandoned halfway through Second Edition when Wizards of the Coast (which had joint rights to the game at the time) [[ViewersareMorons thought this was too confusing]] for their d20 players.

* PurposefullyOverpowered: Many NPC Basic Schools, such as the Dark Moto school and Tsuno Ravager. They have techniques that absolutely hurt, and would make a GM cry if a player ever had access to them.

** "Iron Rokugan," an AU setting in ''Imperial Histories 2,'' averts this trope, by asking what would have happened if things went differently at White Stag. Had the gaijin forces split along national lines due to the Merenae discovering Thrane's treachery, Rokugan may well have developed ties with Merenae, and eventually Rokugani firearms would have been developed on their own, leading to a world where a flintlock pistol being effectively part of the daisho.

* FragileSpeedster: Both the Kakita and Bayushi Bushi schools emphasize the "Hit hard, don't get hit in return" tactic. The Hiruma family also specializes in being faster than the Shadowlands monsters trying to smash them.

** The Crab Clan provides one means of circumventing the caste system. During a "Twenty Goblin Winter," anyone who can single-handedly take twenty goblin heads in five months is admitted to a Crab vassal family, no questions asked. The system is designed to allow the Crab to recruit ronin, but peasants have been admitted to the ranks through this as well.

* AscendedDemon: When the Jade Champion, Kitsu Okura fell to corruption and gave his name to a demon, creating Okura no Oni, the demon eventually gained an appreciation for honour and Bushido through her possession of his soul, and turned against the other oni in the Battle of Oblivion's Gate. She was later cleansed of her taint by the Void Dragon and now guards the gates of the Celestial Heavens.

* GlassCannon: Shugenja in combat are capable of nuking entire armies into oblivion. This is why everybody aims for them first.
** Actually [[AvertedTrope averted]] in the case of many shugenja- because the strength of their spells is dependent on their Rings, and you can't raise a Ring without raising the associated physical Trait, many shugenja are at least as strong as their bushi counterparts. What they lack is training in combat Skills, which limits their effectiveness in combat.

** It should be noted, of course, that ninja use explosives on a regular basis, often for the "smoky exit" effect as for demolition. Of course, since ninja don't exist, they can get away with it.
