** Not quite, but a clip where Hyui dispatches a Mook while yelling '''[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BHbgoLFvpmE EEEEAAAAUUUUUAAAAHHHH]]''' has been remixed and such several times.
** The [[https://images.encyclopediadramatica.se/a/af/Bscap378.jpg face a black mook makes]] in one scene has become the template for the SHOOP DA WHOOP meme.
** The scene with Kenshiro destroying the tank happens to be the most popular scene and is used to describe the series in a nutshell despite the fact it came from a filler episode.

* {{Mondegreen}}: It is common among people to mishear Kenshiro's "OWATTA!" ("Finish!") as "WATTA" or "WATAH". Even the Japanese do that mistake. [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1JBg6rWDIl0 There's a video that addresses that issue, with Akira Kamiya confirming it.]]



** Kenshiro's {{Kiai}}: "ATATATATATATATATA WATTA!"

* CompleteMonster: Jackal [[note]]closer to a Jagi {{expy}}, with a little bit of Spade [[CompositeCharacter thrown in]], than to the character of the same name[[/note]] is TheDragon to [[BigBad Lord Shen]], whom he surpasses in evil. When Shen orders Jackal to capture the inhabitants of a village so he can use them as slaves, Jackal and his gang kill many of the villagers before beginning to capture any. On the way over to the work camps, Jackal orders one of the slaves to be killed because the slave tried to suck up to him and Jackal hates brown-nosers. When a little girl stands up to Jackal, he [[WouldHurtAChild orders her to be beheaded in a guillotine]]. Finally, when Shen gives Jackal the order to keep his wife hidden during the climax, Jackal hints that he will rape and/or torture her instead, and tries to beat her to death when she tries to escape him.

* AlternateCharacterInterpretation:
** Ryuken honored a dying man's request to take his children (Toki and Raoh) and raise them. Rather than adopting them, he takes them as students, dropping them off a cliff and opting to teach whoever climbs back up. A TricksterMentor with an unorthodox way of teaching kids, or an asshole who took advantage of his friend's death to find students? He could also be considered a blend of the two, a man who tried to be a parent but didn't really know how and as he grew older learned to care for his adopted sons better.
** The Colonel (more so his manga version) could be seen as a {{Foil}} to Raoh. He's a highly principled man thrown into a world gone mad who does his best to bring everything under control with an iron fist. He wants to raise an army of the strongest to bring order to the wasteland but lacks Raoh's principles and strength.

** Falco's stint as Kenshiro's ally was painfully short. After pulling a HeelFaceTurn, he departs to save Lin and then immediately has [[DroppedABridgeOnHim a bridge dropped on him]] and dies 2 episodes in to the Shura arc. Even with the show trying to hand wave it with WorfHadTheFlu it was a waste of a potentially interesting ally especially seeing as previous characters like Rei, Shew, and even Ein had more screen time and things to do.
