* {{Wangst}}: Even though Kotaro knows the truth about what happened to his mother, his denial caused him to hate every single woman and even try to kill Oyu. To be fair, he knew Oyu's true identity and believed she was an agent.
* WTHCastingAgency - Creator/JeanReno playing Jacques Blanc ?
** What's wrong with that ?
** To be fair, Jacques was intentionally designed to look like him, just how Samonosuke was intentionally designed to look like his actor, Takeshi Kaneshiro.
** Except they didn't let Jean Reno voice Jacques's English dialogue, which is over 90% of his dialogue. How awesome would it have been to hear Jean's smooth French accentented English while you're playing as him? The fact he's speaking his own French lines is weak compensation, even if they couldn't get him to do English voices due to time or money constraints.
** He's [[GermansLoveDavidHasselhoff really popular in Japan.]] They [[EverythingSoundsSexierInFrench think he's sexy]].
** Also, the person who voices him? Paul Mercier, who, [[ActorAllusion like Reno]], voiced [[VideoGame/ResidentEvil4 a different Leon]].

** Luis Frois's hospital in Osaka. There are no patients, but is full of human-like zombies.... also he's a creepy man.

** Munenori from Dawn of Dreams. He attacked his own family, the Yagyu clan because he thought his grandfather killed his mother, which was his StartOfDarkness. [[spoiler:When Munenori's niece reveals that his mother actually gave her life to save him, and his grandfather had nothing to do with it, Munenori is initially taken aback. Then, he starts to laugh, and reveals he doesn't care what happened in his past, he will continue to be evil. ]]
** Mitsunari qualifies as well. Not only did he spearhead the Genma research that led to the creation of the Genma Trees and caused the entire country to be swept into chaos, he [[spoiler:invited the demon Claudius to inhabit his body, ''willingly'' as opposed to being possessed, and as a result it became impossible to tell where one ended and the other began.]] Unlike Hideyoshi, whose grand delusions were stroked by the Genma Triumvirate, or Luis Frois, who began researching the Genma purely out of curiosity [[spoiler:only to end up being possessed by Rosencratz]], Mitsunari knew ''exactly'' what he was doing, and he ''wanted it to happen''. It's enough to make one doubt he was ever human in the first place.

**In life, UsefulNotes/OdaNobunaga was a brutal warlord. After his death and resurrection, he becomes far worse. Planning to achieve immortality by drinking an innocent princess's blood, Nobunaga, who serves as the BigBad for the first three games, soon becomes the [[DemonKingNobunaga king of all demons]] to replace the slain king Fortinbras. Leading his forces, Nobunaga embarks on a vicious campaign through Japan, slaughtering civilians. Nobunaga also wipes out the Yagyu village, leaving only one survivor. Stopping at nothing to dominate all Japan, Nobunaga is a stark reminder that [[HumansAreTheRealMonsters humans can be just as evil as any demon]].
**Guildenstern, also from the first three games (only mentioned in the second), the MadScientist of the Genma and Nobunaga's [[TheDragon right-hand demon]], is a monster who enjoys the taste of organs and crafting new monsters to [[ForScience extend the power of the Genma]]. Guildenstern is the one to transform and resurrect Nobunaga and to facilitate the destruction his forces cause. In the third game, Guildenstern opens a rift to modern day UsefulNotes/{{Paris}} and leads the Genma forces to slaughter everything they find. When he is found by [[TheHero Samanosuke]] in Paris, Guildenstern is even shown about to [[WouldHurtAChild devour the organs of a child]], stating he just loves how delicious and soft children are.

** "Even if i die......I will DESTROY YOU!"- In the climactic scene of the first game, there is an awkward pause with Samonusuke's mouth still flapping in the English version since the words in Japanese are longer.

** The real game breaker is Jubei's BulletTime power. Her ability makes even the hardest boss fights a complete cakewalk.
