** A minor one occurs with the sword. When you get the Revolver, you're taught about upgrading weapons with money, but the sword's upgrades are locked. As you acquire other weapons, the sword remains as the only weapon that doesn't tell you about its upgrades or allow you to purchase them. This makes it not so much a surprise when you get the first upgrade [[spoiler:as part of the plot]], and further that the other two legendary swords are [[spoiler:simply part of the true Nobitsura Kage]], since they must simply be upgrades to a single weapon.

* InterfaceSpoiler: In the final level, when you first defeat [[spoiler:Xing's armor]], not only did you only have to attack ''one'' [[AttackItsWeakPoint weak spot]], you can tell you only damaged its health bar a tiny amount (not to mention you NeverFoundTheBody), making it pretty obvious that [[spoiler:it will return]]. This is also true the [[spoiler:second time you fight it]], as it is left with half health, making it obvious that you will fight it [[spoiler:a third time]].

* PoorCommunicationKills: The plot might have turned out a lot differently had the villains bothered to talk to the other characters (bonus points with the villains being the only ones [[spoiler:with enough memories of important events]] to even do so). For instance, if Enra had bothered to give his side of the story in the first three-quarters of the game, he might have convinced Lo Wang that Hoji was a villain long enough to complete his plan, especially since [[spoiler:it's not exactly untrue]]. [[spoiler:Zilla]] might have won if he didn't try to treat Lo Wang as a traitor for managing to pull his off job even better than what he was hired for, which only happened because [[spoiler:Zilla]] decided to stop supporting him to begin with after blaming him for Mizayaki being unwilling to sell the sword. In other words, [spoiler:Enra and his brothers die]] because he didn't tell anyone why he was invading, and Zilla lets that invasion grow out of control because he doesn't keep Lo Wang in the loop.

** On the other hand, this can lead to HoistByHisOwnPetard, as nothing prevents you from charging ''Divider of Heavens'' before getting grappled, and then ramming your katana through the warlord's face on impact. Or just using the shotgun's altfire. Either works.

* PoweredByAForsakenChild: The Shadow Realm is nourished by rain which comes from Ameonna's tears. Thus, when [[spoiler:Hoji makes her happy]] her tears cease and the land suffers.
