* {{Youkai}}: The game's based on Japanese mythology. Naturally, there are plenty: the ''{{kitsune}}'' that serve Inarimyojin assist Kisuke and Momohime, with Yuzuruha and Kongiku taking human form to serve as guides; ''{{tengu}}'' and ''{{kappa}}'' are common enemies, as are the ''{{karakasa}}''-type Obake, although they look slightly different from their usual form (that being a one-legged umbrella monster with a single eye and a mouth with a long tongue). Every boss (other than named characters like Kurozaru and Torahime) are based on famous Yokai and legends.

In 2013, the game was [[UpdatedRerelease ported to the]] PlaystationVita as "Muramasa Rebirth" (still just Oboro Muramasa in Japan), with an updated script and controls. In addition, Muramasa Rebirth got DownloadableContent, which took the form of an [[AnotherSideAnotherStory alternate mode]]; called "Genroku Legends", it features nothing regarding Muramasa or his Demon Blades, instead focusing on completely different/new characters in four three-chapter-long stories that take place in the same universe.

Added DiffLines:

* GoldenEnding: [[spoiler:Momohime's third ending in particular, a BelatedHappyEnding that ''might'' overwrite the BittersweetEnding of her second ending--[[TimeyWimeyBall it's complicated]]. Momohime is happy and healthy, Jinkuro finally gets what he wants and uses it to protect her, and Kongiku gets to stay with her beloved lord and master in human form.]]

* CuteMonsterGirl: We're talking a game set in [[JidaiGeki Feudal Japan]]. [[{{Kitsune}} Kongiku and Yuzuruha]] are standouts here. Raijin ([[{{Beastess}} who resembles an oni]]) is quite attractive, but her beauty is mostly overshadowed by her brash and aggresive nature (almost to [[TheLadette Ladette]] levels, [[{{Tsundere}} go figure]]). The only times it surfaces is when she's knocked out of the sky (she lands on her rump and takes a moment to tend to her rear in a typical {{Dojikko}} fashion; notably, her voice raises from sultrily deep and tough to innocuously cute) and briefly after the BossBattle with her when Fujin calms her down. And once you beat her, she is just adorable. More are added for ''Rebirth''; the first main character is Okoi, a female [[CatGirl Nekomata]], and the second is Rajyaki, a small Oni girl. Meanwhile, Gonbe is assisted by his wife's still-attractive ghost, while Arashimaru's snake familiar is actually a shapeshifting minor deity out for his blood.

* SpiritualSuccessor: As said above, ''Muramasa'' is one to ''Odin Sphere'', which in turn makes this game one to ''Princess Crown''[[labelnote:*]]a 1997 SegaSaturn game made by members of Creator/{{Atlus}} who went on to become Creator/{{Vanillaware}}[[/labelnote]] by proxy. ''Muramasa'' was even referred to as ''Princess Crown 3'' during development.

Legend tells of the swordsmith {{Muramasa}} Senji, whose blades, though unparalleled in quality, carry with them a terrible curse. Though these 'Demon Blades' can cut through anything, they compel their wielders to uncontrollable bloodlust, and they must draw blood before being resheathed... whether that blood is from an enemy or the swordsman himself.

* StatuesqueStunner: {{Exaggerated|Trope}} with Raijin, ''by far'' one of the tallest women encounter in the game.

** In JapaneseMythology, Raijin carries small hammers to beat on the ring of drums of behind him and thus stir up thunderstorms. Naturally, ''Muramasa''[='s=] [[GenderBender take on Raijin]] keeps them, but when you consider that this Raijin is [[AmazonianBeauty outright ripped]] as opposed to [[StoutStrength slightly chunky]], perhaps those hammers also double as dumbbells.
