* BoringButPractical: The Tiger, a move that allows you to block an opponent's attack and stun them, is by far the least flashy of the Kusagari Powers. However, it leaves your enemies wide open for a while, and always works, even against Giant Mooks or bosses, making this one of the more useful moves.
** And kneecapping and then finishing gun mooks or lowly sword mooks. It's not exciting, but it's the best way to take them out fast.
** There's also the alternative - [[BoomHeadshot Aerate his skull]] with the [[RevolversAreJustBetter revolver]], then use the Rush on him. Gets old just as fast, but you get more money.
** The [[SawedOffShotgun double-barrel]] is [[OneHitKill incredibly effective]] against ninjas

* OffhandBackhand: The Storm, when used against enemies close enough to you that are behind you. It counts as an OneHitKill on any {{Mook}} and works on giant ones as well, who normally need to be finished off from behind.
** That said, they have to be telegraphing an attack for you to be able to use the instant kill.

* {{Troperiffic}}: Hell yeah!
* WakeUpCallBoss: If you haven't mastered the combat system yet, Payne will definitely make you....well, [[IncrediblyLamePun feel the Payne]].
** Shinjiro is this even more so. Don't duel him without getting all the health and armor upgrades first at the very least!

* WhyDontYouJustShootHim: Speaking of Payne, he takes the cake for this one: Not only does he forego the chance to simply kill the protagonist in the beginning, effectively dooming his gang and himself in the process, he also neglects to take away the hero's GUN!

* AwesomeYetPractical: The higher-level special moves can be chained together with skill, and you earn a ton of cash for each successful technique. If you ''finish'' with a special, however, you get a multiplier on top of the regular cash bonus, which can turn just a few random mooks into a gold mine.
** In particular is "The Shot". It's a way to use up ammo ''and'' gain cash bonuses.

* EasyModeMockery: A variant: The final upgrade to the Sidewinner rifle gives it explosive shots, but it doesn't yield any money on kills or combos.

* BoomHeadshot: The Special ability "The Shot" does this if used as a finishing move with the revolver: other guns go for a pointblank stomach shot, a PistolWhip followed by a quick vertical burst and an upwards-pointed pointblank chest shot. Getting a head shot normally results in an instant kill and being awarded $200.

* GameBreakingBug: As pointed out in [[http://videogamegeek.com/thread/630889/plight-of-the-kusagari this review]], some copies of the game have bugs that can wipe out save data and require you to reset the chapter, wiping out an hour or more of progress.
