* FacingTheBulletsOneLiner: Or close to it, anyway. When a major clan is destroyed (and thus the daimyo dies) in ''Shogun'' and ''Shogun 2'' (only when it happens to the player-controlled one in the latter), he recites a historical "death poem", written by samurai before they either committed {{seppuku}} or went off to a LastStand.

* WarriorMonk: In the ''Shogun'' games, of course. In ''Shogun 2'', they are the best at what they do (naginata warrior monks at melee combat, bow warrior monks at archery), but they lack armor and thus are vulnerable to enemy arrows and melee attack (respectively).

In ''Shogun 2'', they are the best at what they do (naginata warrior monks highly specialized elite warriors, with Naginata Warrior Monks excelling at melee combat, bow warrior monks combat and Bow Warrior Monks excelling at archery), but ranged combat. However, they are expensive to recruit and field, and their lack armor and thus are of armour renders them vulnerable to enemy arrows and melee attack (respectively).being shot to death by arrows; Bow Warrior Monks are particularly fragile, being virtually incapable of defending themselves in melee.

* BadassGrandpa: Even at 60+ years of age, most generals still kick ass as part of their bodyguards. And usually, by that time, they'll be ''literal'' grandfathers, if not great-grandfathers. In the original ''Shogun'', Daimyos could be found going into battle at ''seventy''. The Rebel's Daimyo (provided you gave them one via text edits) will age [[UpToEleven to 999]], due to a missing string.

** Played straight with Alexander, who comes with a 60-man strong unit of what might be the best cavalry in the entire series.

Added DiffLines:

* WhiteFlag: When on the verge of breaking, a unit's flag (which normally portrays their national/clan flag) will begin flickering with white. When routed, the flag will flicker white more consistently. Contrary to what a white flag normally means, however, no Total War game has ever allowed a unit to surrender or lay down arms; the closest the series has gotten is allowing the taking of prisoners from routing units.
