* UnintentionallyUnsympathetic: Hellhounds for Hire involves a Yakuza gang trying to take over a town by cheating the residents at dice. While the gang is ObviouslyEvil, it's kind of hard to feel bad when all the residents know that they're cheating, and all they have to do to stop their take over it NOT GAMBLE WITH THEM!

* EarWorm: Several. nujabes' "battlecry" (the opening theme), MINMI's "Shiki no Uta" (the closing theme), tsutchie's "pretending to…" and "sincerely", nujabes' "mystline" and FORCE OF NATURE's "vagrancy" are some select choices. Many ''Champloo'' fans have even stated that they thought the worst of hip hop music before this series came along and changed their minds about the entire genre.

Nujabes' "Counting Stars", which concludes "Gamblers and Gallantry", appears only on a compilation for his record label and not on the soundtracks, making it one of the most sought after songs of the show.

* CompleteMonster: Mukuro is the EvilCounterpart to resident {{Antihero}}, Mugen. A particularly bloodthirsty pirate, Mukuro is [[EstablishingCharacterMoment first seen]] leading an attack on a ship for it's gold, killing the sailors onboard and shoving a lit grenade into the mouth of a subdued man who was begging for mercy. Through flashbacks it's revealed that Mukuro was the one who talked Mugen into piracy, and used him as muscle to kill the guards of a sugar shipment only to leave Mugen to die once he'd stolen the cargo. In present day we discover that Mukuro and his band slaughtered nearly an entire village, including the [[WouldHitAGirl women]] and [[WouldHurtAChild children]]. The only ones who were spared were the young men that could be used as muscle for his biggest heist yet: a raid on a government ship carrying 60,000 ryu in gold coins. He talks Mugen into joining up with him again, but it's only another set-up. Using his crew as canon fodder to lure the government security onto the pirate ship, Mukuro then uses a mass of explosives in an attempt to kill everyone, [[YouHaveOutlivedYourUsefulness his own crew included]] just so he can keep the gold for himself. Mukuro also proves to care little for his "sister" Kohza, either, since he's spent his life controlling her, murdered her mother, and expresses an unrequited sexual interest in her (though he's also perfectly happy to sell her to one of his crew). A sadist with a propensity for [[ChronicBackstabbingDisorder betraying everyone he knows]] and [[LeaveNoSurvivors leaving no survivors]] from his attacks, Mukuro knows exactly what a bastard he is and [[CardCarryingVillain relishes the darkness within his soul]].

** WhatAnIdiot: To the point Mugen will be called an idiot and a fool by many viewers for actually trusting him again.



** NightmareRetardant: The zombie episode, while still frightening, loses a fair bit of its edge when you realize that they were most likely just having a [[MushroomSamba very, very bad trip]].
