* Even if he has no natural martial arts talent, he is uniquely suited to practicing Katsujinken. Many people, including Shigure in the latest chapter, have remarked that he naturally has no killing intent, even while fighting, whereas most of his masters have had to train hard to suppress theirs (like Ma) or never bothered to do so in the first place, instead fighting only enemies they know can survive their attacks (like Apachai). This unique trait not only means that he nearly always exists in a psychological blind spot for his enemies, but also that he can learn any technique he is taught without having to bother teaching him to hold back with it (which is the bulk of martial arts training), because he does it naturally. This means that while he's slower to learn than a talented martial artist, on the whole he'll learn things faster anyway because he has less to learn.

Specifically, there's the love that's unrequited and that causes the rejected character to go all-out in an effort to win the love interest's heart (Kenichi wanting to become strong enough to protect Miu, from early arcs coming down to now, as well as Ukita displaying his {{Determinator}} attitude [[spoiler:to the point of invoking a HeroicSacrifice in the most recent chapters]] to prove his love for Kisara. Then there's the love that's spawned from the desire to protect the love interest, who in this case has already reciprocated [[spoiler:(the aforementioned Kenichi and Miu, plus Saiga's reason for his FaceHeelTurn [[{{Irony}} even though he wound up killing his wife]])]]. Then there's the more platonic love where one wishes to fight on behalf of family members or friends ([[ChronicHeroSyndrome Kenichi]] for the Shinpaku Alliance, Hayato Furinji [[spoiler:[[PapaWolf and Saiga]]]] for Miu, Freya and her grandfather for each other, even [[JerkWithAHeartOfGold Akira Hongo]] for the memory of his disciple Sho Kanou).

[[WMG: Mikumo is actually a FallenHero]]
As shown in a flashback, she fought alongside the Elder at one time during their youth, which means she was one of the good guys. Her current pushing of the Eternal Setting Sun plan [[spoiler:as the series' GreaterScopeVillain]] is because she saw or experienced ''something'' that resulted in her being MaddenedIntoMisanthropy, to the point that she decided on the KillEmAll route to either take revenge (if it was something personal that happened to her) or to [[WellIntentionedExtremist right what she saw as a grievous wrong]].

** Couldn't be. The Elder said he only met Mikumo during WWII, and he hadn't even seen her since then. He even said she was exaggerating their relationship with her "burning fires between us" comment.

** Wouldn't they be recognized as Japanese, just by appearances?

[[WMG:The whole Yami vs. Ryouzanpaku battle is really just a contest over who can train a better boyfriend for Miu.]]
* What about the female disciples? Not to mention Chikage. Unless... is there something about Miu that we're not being told?
** [[YuriFan God, I hope so.]]
* Just because they're there doesn't mean that Saiga gives a crap about them.

He punched a pool in half, therefore it stands to reason that he can also [[KeychainOfCreation punch a river in half]].

* Kisara has been shown to be all kinds of {{Tsundere}} for Ukita. In the final chapter of the manga, they are shown [[spoiler:together on what is implied by Kisara's outfit to be a date. Without Shiratori to mess things up this time.]]

* Sort of confirmed throughout the latter half of the manga: Agaard Jum Sai, Serhul Rahman, and Hongo Akira are all shown to be varying admixtures of WellIntentionedExtremist, NobleDemon, and FriendlyEnemy (also BigBrotherMentor and TheRival in Agaard and Hongo's cases), with frequent PetTheDog moments. Alexander Gaidar, Diego Carlo, and Ma Sogetsu are also shown to [[EvenEvilHasStandards have standards]]. Alexander and Diego are explicitly shown [[EvenEvilHasLovedOnes care for their disciples]]. Sogetsu is implied to be a much more concerned TricksterMentor than is shown. And in the end, all of them [[spoiler:turn against Yami]].

** Even though this troper would find that to be completely awesome...it also doesn't sound very probable. Just for the fact that GunsAreUseless. Especially with masters. Christopher Eclair casually sidesteped around gunfire like it was no big deal. So unless futuristic super guns exist in this world, a gun isn't a good weapon against martial artists after a certain level.
