* AnticlimaxBoss: The final fight in your rematch with Shinjiro is really easy. You can perform the Tiger on him and kill him with a few shots from your upgraded rifle.
* AwesomeArt: Admit it, the cel-shaded graphics are beautiful.
* FridgeLogic:
** [[RewardingVandalism The town must have a really crappy economy.]]
** "Those bandits are robbing our banks! They're carrying off all our gold!" Apparently, there was so much of it, they stuck them in boxes around the town.
* GameBreaker: The Tiger. This even works on bosses, making the difficulty drop like a rock for the whole game.
* {{Narm}}: "I'm gonna cut your throat with your own Katana! Poetic ain't it?"
* ThatOneBoss: Shinjiro's first encounter. He moves and attacks very quickly and deals a lot of damage if one doesn't use the Tiger efficiently.
* TheyWastedAPerfectlyGoodPlot: It's clear they were trying to do more with the plot, but it feels really barebones for the most part. [[spoiler:Not only do you never find out why you were banished from your clan, but the characters are mostly flat and what little exposition there is doesn't really do much for the story.]]
