** When trying to apply real-world politics to Senran Kagura, we have the good ninjas as being elitists and conservatives with shades of aristocratism (all ninja students come from a good ninja family) while bad ninjas are egalitarian/liberals (everyone have his/her chance) with Darwinism being the ultimate rule of law.

** Subverted in the same game by the ending to the Crimson Squad's story has [[spoiler:the Crimson Squad surrounded by a seemingly infinite horde of Youma. They gear up for a fight, but its clear that they have little to no hope of surviving...until the rest of teams suddenly show up to lend them a hand.]]

Added DiffLines:

** Again played straight with ''Peach Beach Splash''. There's something about using shinobi energy to keep Shin sealed, but when asked, Mr K and Ms R say that really they thought that having a giant watergun fight for all the girls would be fun.

** Hebijo's story in ''Shinovi Versus'' is by far the darkest plot in the game, if not the entire series. The plot is literally the Hebijo girls [[CruelAndUnusualDeath brutally murdering]] literally ''everyone'' in the other teams (Hanzo and the Crimson Squad for bringing ruin to Hebijo in ''Burst'', Gessen for getting in their way), and unlike the series trademark KilledOffscreen mantra, we are shown in clear detail how each and every one of Hebijo's enemies dies horrible, bloody deaths. There are little to no jokes or lighthearted banter, and none of the team's "quirks" are played for laughs compared to the other teams. Miyabi's ruthless, single-minded obsession with restoring Hebijo's honor and taking vengeance on its enemies is played dead seriously and is brought to its logical, bloody conclusion. Imu blindly and unquestionably follows Miyabi's murderous agenda out of lustful obsession. Murasaki possesses a nigh-uncontrollable berserker rage capable of ripping even the strongest Shinobi apart limb from limb. Ryona is a psychotic, sadomasochistic sadist who takes a euphoric delight in murdering her enemies in the most gruesome ways possible. Ryobi, while not ''quite'' as insane as her sister, is still clearly unhinged [[spoiler:and is secretly a traitor plotting to murder the rest of the team for their roles in the death of her's and Ryona's sister.]]

* DownerEnding: The ending to Hebijo's story in ''Shinovi Versus'' has [[spoiler:Hanzo, the Crimson Squad and Gessen completely destroyed and their Elite Shinobi all [[FamilyUnfriendlyDeath gruesomely slaughtered]], leaving none left to oppose Rin and Dogen's plans.]]

* FamilyUnFriendlyDeath: [[spoiler:The deaths of the three rival school groups]] in Hebijo's story mode in ''Shinovi Versus''. [[spoiler:In stark contrast to the apparent deaths from the rest of the series, they are all onscreen and all avert the series BloodlessCarnage. Special mentions go to Asuka being impaled by Miyabi while desperately begging for her life, Ikaruga graphically bleeding out from multiple wounds while tearfully begging Yomi to defeat Murasaki, and Yozakura getting ''shot in the head'' by Ryona when she discovers her's and Ryobi's true goals.]]

* ShoutOut: Murakumo's manga is about a muscular shinobi warrior in a post-apocalyptic future saving people from the clutches of evil ninja thieves. Hmmm....When you think about it, it sound suspiciously similar to a certain FistOfTheNorthStar.

*** Daidouji's Shinobi outfit pretty much makes her into a female Jotaro Kujo.
*** In the US version of ''Esteval Versus'' on of the missions is called [[TheNostalgiaCritic "You know, for kids!"]]

** In ''Peach Beach Splash'', a boss fight pits you Mr. K and Ms. R who are fighting on mechs. As they are defeated, the mechs will explode, turn them into ATwinkleInTheSky and they shout lines such as [[Anime/{{Pokemon}} "See you next week!" and "I'm blasting off again!"]]

** Played very straight in the Shinobi Girl's Heart missions in ''Estival Versus,'' [[SarcasmMode featuring a lot of deep, character-driven, soul-searching plots]] such as Homura trying to cure her laryngitis, or Hikage looking for a place to take a nap.

[[SubvertedTrope This is to balance]] a main plot that deals with themes of grief, dying with unfinished business, and the psychological toll of having signed up to die young.

* MundaneUtility: Crops up occasionally. ''Bon Appetit'' is all about using ninja skills for cooking, and in the opening cutscene for ''Peach Beach Splash'', Yumi is seen using her ice powers to cool a swimming pool.

** This happens to Ryona in the OVA of ''Estival Versus''. She drinks some sort of poison and turns into a giant. The other girls get her back to normal by beating the poison out of her.
** Happens in the final mission of the Hebijo story arc in ''Peach Beach Splash''. [[spoiler:Once again, Ryona turns gigantic by getting into contact with poison. This promptly turns her into the FinalBoss of the arc. The four other Hebijo girls have to turn her back into normal by spraying the poison (in the form of foam) of her body with their water pistols.]]


Added DiffLines:

* NeverLiveItDown: In-universe example in ''Peach Beach Splash'' when the Gessen girls practice their shooting skills [[ItMakesSenseInContext by squeezing their own breasts]]. Afterwards, they're quickly agree [[LetUsNeverSpeakOfThisAgain to make sure the others never find out about it]]... except they forgot they're being filmed by cameras constantly. Miss R. ensures them they will never let them forget about it.

* InterclassFriendship
** After the two group stopped trying to kill each other and got to know each other, Asuka's Hanzo Academy, a elite ninja school, ends up being friends with Homura's Crimson Squad, who end up being runaway ninjas. Though, the two who fit this the most are Ikaruga, who was adopted into a rich ninja family, and Yomi, who was born in the poorest slums.
** Ikaruga's first true friend in Hanzo Academy was with the orphaned Katsuragi.
