* TranslationConvention: Considering Aku's ruled the world since ancient Japan, with Japan being the first under his dominion, it can be assumed that the reason why Jack's able to talk with everyone is that everyone canonically speaks Japanese.

* LovecraftLite: The world (and, slowly, the universe) is under the totalitarian dictatorship of an EldritchAbomination with nearly CompleteImmortality. That said, a lone warrior wields the only weapon able to kill it, and is slowly winning a one man war against said EldritchAbomination.

* AllForNothing: The winter segment of "Four Seasons of Death". An extended ForgingScene for a tribe of orc/yeti creatures to make a sword, then the sword is rammed into a pillar while the orcs fight for who gets to wield it. The winner takes that sword, which now can apparently throw lightningbolts, then goes to wait in the raging blizzard outside. Jack comes by, they fight... and the sword is instantly cut in half.

** A similar thing happens in "The Princess and the Bounty Hunters". The titular princess and bounty hunters are hunting for Jack (each for their own reasons, mostly money) and they form a complex plan on how to take him down. Each one is also given a brief intro of how badass they are and their prior contracts. [[spoiler: Like the above, when they actually meet Jack, the Samurai defeats each one without breaking a sweat, and all before a single drop of water fell from a melting icicle.]]

* AnimationBump: The jump from Seasons 1 & 2 to Season 3 is staggering. In the first season the fight sequences were choreographed in a fashion that saved money while also being appealing. Season 2 fallowed suit with even more fight sequences in general. Said sequences showed more of Jack than prior. By the third season, the budget was high enough to show Jack and the assailant(s) up close and personal. Also worth noting is that season three added smoother animations (noteworthy are the close-ups of the cowboy boots in the western episode). To top it all off, Aku was given much more expression and liveliness, like having a mouth that droops, or even properly smiles. And let's not even discuss the lip-synching on him...

* PlotHole: In episode Jack Learns to Jump Good, he learns to jump really high after lifting heavy rocks. The later episode, Jack's Sandals, literally has Jack incapable of jumping high while wearing heavy shoes.

Cartoon Network's original {{Toonami}} block aired reruns of ''Samurai Jack'' during the block's third and fourth incarnations; the show even ran as part of Toonami's final pre-cancellation block. The revived Creator/AdultSwim version of Toonami brought back Jack in February 2014, and a re-release of the series on DVD began in the same year.

* DarkerAndEdgier: Possibly, as the revived series will premiere on Creator/AdultSwim/Toonami instead of the normal Creator/CartoonNetwork, it will quite likely exploit the block's laxer censorship to some extent, in order to appeal to the old show's audience, who are now adults.

* ScrewThisImOuttaHere: After Ra easily obliterates two of Set's minions, the last one attempts to escape. He doesn't get very far.



* ShoutOut: Lots of them. ''Franchise/StarWars'' gets the most.

* WorthyOpponent: In one episode, Aku sends a tribe of hunters to capture Jack. When they triumph, they describe Jack as the hardest-to-catch prey they ever hunted and respect him for this to the point of allowing him to go free.
