* CrowningMomentOfFunny: In the fourth chapter, Ashura asks to know his mother but Yasha tells him they'll go to her as soon as Yasha takes care of Taishakuten. So, in the meantime, Ashura decides that Yasha can be his mother!
-->'''Yasha:''' [[FlatWhat What?]]
* CryForTheDevil: [[spoiler:Despite all the horrible things he did, Taishakuten's life is an empty one: he has all Tenkai's riches and power in his hands, everyone fears his power and obey him but everything is junk for him after losing Ashura-oh and he just lives to fullfil the only promise he made in his life to the only man he loved.]] That's actually quite sad.
* MagnificentBastard: Taishaku-ten.
* MoralEventHorizon: Taishakuten does plenty wrong through the story, but when [[spoiler: he had Lady Karura's sister Karyoubinga taken out of her safe haven to have her sing at a party where she died from her illness AND afterwards had her remains fed to his pet animals, it was enough to send Karura over the edge. Everyone, even his loyal servants, are horrofied by such deed.]]
* ShockingSwerve: [[spoiler: Lady Kendappa is the last of bloodthirsty Four Generals. W.. T... F?!]]
** [[spoiler:Actually, it makes kinda of sense. If she's one of the Six Stars, that were supposed to be strong fighters so "the true Ashura" could absorbe their powers, Kendappa needed to be one of the elite in terms of strenght. Also, she rightfully inherited the titule after her father's (the former fouth general) death and she did prove to be freaking strong.]]
