Demonic creatures coming from a parallel dimension are constantly trying to get into the human world. It's actually a phenomenon dating back many decades, hence why a special undercover police/military group has been created to deal with it: the Black Corps. Taki Renzaburou is a Japanese member of this task force, as well as one of the most badass.

Very recently, the leaders of both worlds have been working on getting a peace treaty signed. Since it needs to be ratified in our world, Renzaburou is chosen to keep an eye on the negotiations, and so is Makie, a beautiful ActionGirl coming from the demon world. However, not everyone is keen on having demons and humans living in peace. . .

''Wicked City'' (妖獣都市 Yōjū Toshi) is an attack on the senses. It started as a series of horror novels written by Hideyuki Kikuchi. The first of said novels was adapted into an anime movie by YoshiakiKawajiri (''Anime/NinjaScroll'', ''CyberCityOedo808'') in TheEighties, and later into a live-action movie. Being the better-known part of the franchise, the tropes here will be taken mostly from the anime, so please add those from the movie and novels!

It's [[FanDisservice not]] [[{{Gorn}} for]] [[BodyHorror the]] [[EldritchAbomination faint]] of [[AdultFear heart.]]

!!The WickedCity anime movie has examples of...

* AmbiguouslyBrown: Renzaburou is very tanned for a Japanese guy. His dark skin makes a nice contrast with [[RavenHairIvorySkin Makie's pale skin and dark hair.]]
* AnimationBump: Especially during action scenes, although the entire film is consistently well-animated.
* BadassNormal: Renzaburou has no supernatural powers, but gets by due to his quick wits and physical skills.
* BattleCouple: Makie and Renzaburou become one of these by the end. [[spoiler: Just as planned by Giuseppe.]]
* BlownAcrossTheRoom: Subverted with the HandCannon. It actually has enough recoil to justify the impact, and Taki has to brace himself against a wall to fire it.
* DirtyOldMan: Giuseppe. To the point that [[spoiler: the demons use [[HoneyTrap a beautiful demonic]] HighClassCallGirl to try killing him. They almost succeed... [[ThePlan with a catch]].]]
* EldritchAbomination / HumanoidAbomination: Pretty much all the demons have this vibe; even those who stay human in appearance are very clearly ''not''.
* FanDisservice: Renzaburou's one-night stand? [[spoiler: She turns out to be a spider woman who tries to kill him by eating him with her mouth that was once her vagina right after they go at it.]] The HighClassCallGirl that Giuseppe fondles in a soapland? [[spoiler: Another demon woman, who almost kills him by absorbing him into her through her breasts.]] The times we get to see Renzaburou's [[LadyOfWar beautiful and badass partner]] Makie naked? [[spoiler: First fingerbanged by a guy who's holding her down against her will. Then a giant worm demon orally rapes her after exploding her clothes off. Then some gang rape. Then the gang rape again.]] And it goes on and on...
* FemmeFatale: Makie
* [[spoiler: GladToBeAliveSex: Makie and Renzaburou, after he rescues her from the other demons and they're both ambushed by the Spider Woman in her last fight.]]
** [[spoiler: GoodPeopleHaveGoodSex: Doubles as this, as their sex scene is very sweet and tender and Renzaburou goes out of his way to be gentle to Makie. Perhaps enforcing the trope even harder, theirs is the only ''pleasant and fully consensual'' sexual encounter in the whole movie]].
* HalfHumanHybrids: [[spoiler: Makie and Renzaburou are the parents of the first one, according to Giuseppe. Said child will be known as the living proof that humans and demons can co-exist in peace.]]
* HoneyTrap: [[spoiler: Spider Woman and the HighClassCallGirl.]]
* LovecraftianSuperpower: Most demonic powers are like this. [[EldritchAbomination With good reason]].
* NamesToKnowInAnime: Creator/YusakuYara (Renzaburou), ToshikoFujita (Makie), Creator/IchiroNagai (Giuseppe)
** And on the English side, Greg Snegoff (Taki), SteveKramer (Jin), MeloraHarte (Soapland girl), and Creator/MikeReynolds (Giuseppe)
* NoNameGiven: The Spider Woman and the HighClassCallGirl.
* ObfuscatingStupidity: [[spoiler:Giuseppe. Holy SHIT, [[GuileHero Giuseppe]].]]
* PregnantBadass: [[spoiler: As soon as she and Renzaburou have sex and she gets pregnant, Makie's powers go past the ceiling. So much that ''she'' is the one who delivers the fatal blow to the BigBad, while elegantly and badassedly wrapped in a ModestyBedsheet.]]
* RapeAsDrama: [[spoiler:Most of what happens to Makie throughout the movie.]]
* TheRightOfASuperiorSpecies: Makie's ex-lover Jin tries to make her admit this by saying, "Human are lower-class creatures than us. They're only fit for slavery. That's their heritage."
* SalaryMan: Renzaburou's cover as an electronic salesman.
* ScrewTheRulesImDoingWhatsRight: [[spoiler:Renzaburou is forced to leave Makie behind, but then he leaves to rescue her from her captors/rapists despite knowing he'll be thrown out of the Black Corps.]]
* StalkerWithATestTube: [[spoiler:Renzaburou and Makie]] were intentionally paired up in hopes of [[spoiler:conceiving a half-human/half-Black World child.]] as part of the proposed peace treaty. [[spoiler:Giuseppe]] was actually put in place to facilitate this.
* [[spoiler: StarCrossedLovers]]: [[spoiler: Renzaburou and Makie, by the end of the movie.]]
* UnwillingSuspension: Makie and Renzaburou, [[spoiler: after the last fight with the Spider Woman.]] For worse, they're hanging ''upside down'' and their bounds are made of [[spoiler: spider web]]. Augh.
* VaginaDentata: The Spider Woman. Eeeeeeew.
* WolverineClaws: The aforementioned Makie's WeaponOfChoice.
* WomanInWhite: Makie wears a nice white gown at some point.
