* FreudianExcuse: Deconstructed in the case of Aishi the Mournful Blade. The reason she commits the crimes she does is because she's haunted by [[spoiler:the screams of the boy who Captain Sen drowned as a child.]]

*** Sagacious Zu actually gets one of the best Wham Lines that a lot of players never experience, due to how complex getting it actually is. [[spoiler: If you talk to Zu constantly and demonstrate to him repeatedly that you value his opinion and trust his judgement ''prior to him leaving the party'' during the Lotus Assassin Fortress quest, close to the end of that quest he will tell the player that, in addition to being a former Lotus Assassin, he was actually one of the Assassins sent to ''kill Master Li's family'' after Li betrayed the Emperor at Dirge. Almost before players can recover from this devastating revelation, he drops the following bombshell on the player]]
-->'''Sagacious Zu:''' [[spoiler:My fate is sealed, but one secret must live on. I killed them all, my fellow Assassins. I would not let them finish their mission. '''Master Li's child still lives'''.]]

** Gao the Lesser. Early in the game he bemoans to Master Li that all he (Master Li) does is lavish you with training and attention and, consequently, his own training has suffered for it. Despite clearly knowing this, he still thinks it's a fine idea to ''challenge you to a 1v1 duel.'' Partially averted as the fight isn't to the death (if you win it anyway.) Despite this, later on in the late stages of the first chapter of the game [[spoiler:he ''challenges you again'' without anyone to step in and stop you from killing him despite:]]
***[[spoiler:a) you have the option to bring in backup (either Sagacious Zu or Dawn Star) thus making it a 2v1,]]
***[[spoiler:b) you've just finished bulldozing your way through a cave of toad demons and ogres to reach him and]]
***[[spoiler:c) he's already gotten his ass handed to him once before by you during a previous 1v1 fight.]]

*** It's debatable as to whether he might actually be a [[http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Main/MagnificentBastard]] Magnificent Bastard instead of just a manipulative one. While he doesn't exhibit the raw swagger and style one would expect from a stereotypical magnificent bastard, he ''did'' [[spoiler:plan for nearly all eventualities in a massive revenge scheme that lasted ''decades.'' Also, when he betrays the player character, he does so in such a calm cool and collected manner that some players didn't even realize he was betraying them until they slumped over at his feet. The only eventuality that he didn't plan for was that a ''Goddess'' (that he believed to be functionally dead) would save up enough strength in the intervening years to ''resurrect'' his pawn for a shot at revenge themselves.]]

*** It's heavily implied that the reason Master Li runs a school at all is because [[spoiler:he wanted to ensure that his motives for training you seemed normal, and thus you would not grow suspicious. It also helped to conceal his location from the Lotus Assisns for 20 years. A master of a school with many students might be prestigious but is certainly not strange. A master who runs a school with only one student is odd indeed.]]
