** Count Karajan in particular stands out. The man buys a flask of white-wine for a sending of bodyarmor for his guards, and doesn't even particularly like it. [[spoiler:.. But come the night where you infiltrate his castle, he's breaking down into a desperate, shivering coward. He even has the Terrified mark above his head when you're about to kill him!]]

* MooksButNoBosses: Somewhat justified. [[spoiler:Corporal Kelly is merely a PaletteSwap of Elite Guards and Count Karajan is '''too frightened''' to even put up a fight. Azai might be just too old to fight an extremely well-trained ninja with the power of the ink]].

** With the DLC-exclusive Path Of Wisdom outfit, you can do a more VideoGame/MetalGearSolid-style pacifist run by knocking everyone out with non-lethal takedowns. And, yes: Using this ability does count for both the "Mercy" and the "Ghost" achievements.

* RealityEnsues: Go ahead and try to run into fights like [[VideoGame/NinjaGaiden other kinds]] [[{{Shinobi}} of ninja game]]. Heavily armed mooks with assault rifles, sniper rifles, and shotguns and [[spoiler:later with laser beams]] will make ''real'' short work of you.

* {{Badass}}: The main character, natch.
** The Elites (mostly) live up to their boasts: trying to stealth kill one before stunning will result in a NeckLift, and the same will happen if you fail the quick-time event even if they are stunned. In fact, even with the Hisomu Poison Dart, which normally induces enemies into a state of sheer panic, they will never get terrorized. [[spoiler:They'll still commit suicide, though]].
** Dosan didn't even use a sword when he was young. He didn't need one. Bonus points as [[BadassNormal he never received the mark]], but still was able to put a small army of bandits armed to the teeth on the line, after they threatened to turn on the Hisomu clan, ''on his own''.

** Killing and throwing a guard off a ledge is called [[AssassinsCreed Leap of Faith]].

* VoiceWithAnInternetConnection: Amusingly enough, Ora. The Marked Ninja somehow intercepts a few enemy transmissions during the stages, though.

* ReasonableAuthorityFigure: Azai. After [[spoiler:the player goes rogue during the second part of the game upon learning that Azai lied about his motives for having the Marked Ninja attack Karajan, and that he plans to phase out the old ways in favor of advanced technology,]] he nontheless engages his wayward student in polite conversation, and allows said student to decide whether to kill himself or not. Bear in mind, [[spoiler:he knows full well that the Marked Ninja is suffering from the madness brought on by the toxin of his tattoos, and may well decide to murder him and the rest of the clan,]] yet he doesn't even put up a fight.
