* StanceSystem: A staple of the series that also doubles as RealTimeWeaponChange. Aya can switch from single to dual wielding swords, and Saki has access to grapples moves with her fists, Reiko pulls out a shotgun or SMG, and Misery's sword becomes a WhipSword (the latter two ladies are playable in ''Bikini Zombie Slayers''). Kagura and Saaya more so count as real time weapon change, but it can still work as stances since their fighting styles completely change.

* KnifeNut: When not using her swords, Aya can use her throwing knives/kunai instead.
* LimitBreak[=/=]SuperMode: In Z2 Chaos, both the Baneful Blood and Vampire Sisters get an upgrade from their enraged state. Aya and Saki get Xtatic, and Kagura and Saaya gain access to Dare Drive. Their transformations work similar to [[Franchise/DevilMayCry Devil Trigger]], though you still lose some health or are more susceptible to damage just like the enraged state. The girls can recover health by killing zombies and getting random drops of blood crystal from them. Also, the girls become more stripperific due to their transformations with the exception of Saaya.

* LongRangeFighter: Annna & Reiko specializes in this with their guns;especially the latter.



* MiniGameCredits: Taking a page out of Devil May Cry, the ending of Onechanbara Z has Kagura and Saaya face off Aya and Saki for the last time. This time however, you are invulnerable while they aren't, to [[NintendoHard give you a chance]].

* SuspiciouslySimilarSubstitute: Kagura & Saaya to Aya & Saki; but more so Kagura because she wears an outfit similar to [[http://andriasang.com/comy2j/images/23esn/ Aya]] and carries twins swords. Though Kagura seems to have a cockier attitude compared to Aya going by the first trailer.

Though it's subverted in the actual game and story (other than Kagura because she wears an outfit carrying twin swords and dressing similar to [[http://andriasang.com/comy2j/images/23esn/ Aya]] Aya]]), both the former have different personalities and carries twins swords.

Added DiffLines:

* TauntButton: Surprisingly absent in ''Chaos'' due to the new configuration in controls for ability and character switching. All of the others previous games had one.

Two games from the series have been released in the United States: ''Onechanbara: Bikini Samurai Squad'' (for {{Xbox360}}) and ''Onechanbara: Bikini Zombie Slayers'' (for the {{Wii}}). There's also a live-action movie based on the game series.

A new game called ''Onechanbara Z: Kagura'' was released on 1/19/2012, in Japan for {{Xbox360}}. Instead of Aya and Saki in this game, we have Kagura and Saaya: a pair of vampire sisters. The game was the first of the series that was not a budget game like its predecessors, and the marketing has been rather big. However, due to its Xbox-exclusivity, it failed to attract a wide audience (not that it was making any pretense to).

* {{Portmantitle}}: The title, 'Onechanbara', is a portmanteau of 'onē-chan', an affectionate [[JapaneseHonorifics Japanese term of address]] for an older sister or a young woman, and 'chanbara', a word referring to the genre of samurai films, particularly the classic ones (much like Wild West films over here in the West). [[note]]Note that for the pun to be retained in romanization, one has to use modified Hepburn (or another romanization scheme like Nihonsiki - indeed, since these romanization schemes tend to drop the hyphen used for honorifics like 'Onē-chan', this might be better anyway) rather than traditional Hepburn, which romanizes the kana ん / ン as 'm' rather than 'n' before an m, b or p (since that's closer to how it's actual pronounced).[[/note]]
