* TheApprentice: Storm-Shadow is his [[TheObiWan Obi-Wan]], the Blind Master is his Yoda.
* {{Expy}}: An IdealHero teenager with a pretty common name seeks revenge on a supervillain who wears a CoolHelmet for "what he did to my father." Turns out said villain actually IS his father. Gets trained by a master martial artist. Loses a limb, gains a cybernetic replacement, and becomes a better martial artist. Realizes that his father must be stopped, and that a confrontation with him is inevitable, but does not want to be put in a situation where he's forced to destroy him. Are we talking about Billy or [[Franchise/StarWars Luke]]?
* EyepatchOfPower
* FirstNameBasis: Usually just called Billy. Kessler is presumably his mother's maiden name.
* LaResistance
* LukeIAmYourFather: More like Destro telling him "Billy, he IS your father."

* RestoredMyFaithInHumanity: One of the key catalysts in Storm-Shadow's HeelFaceTurn.
* ToylessToylineCharacter

An American soldier who is blinded by a combat injury and "stranded in Tokyo", and is taken in by the Arashikage Clan, eventually becoming one of their Masters.

* BadassGrandpa: The Marvel comics implies that he war where he lost his sight was [[UsefulNotes/TheKoreanWar Korea]], which would put him in his fifties at least.
* CanonImmigrant: Originally a comics only character, but mentioned in [[WesternAnimation/GIJoeTheMovie the animated movie]] and actually appears in the live action one.
* CaneFu: Uses his cane as a weapon.
* CoolCar: A Ford GT 40 Mark V.
* HandicappedBadass: Despite being blind, he's still a master martial artist, is able to sense how close he is to the blast radius of a grenade, and he can still drive ("Only at night").
* HawaiianShirtedTourist: Frequently wore a Hawaiian shirt and a Panama hat.
* HighlyVisibleNinja: Hawaiian shirts tend to stand out. Occasionally lampshaded by other characters.
* MadeOfIron: "The Blind Master has a talent for surviving explosions."
* MightyWhitey: He's black, but otherwise fits a RetiredBadass variation of the trope.
* YourEyesCanDeceiveYou: Teaches this to his students.
