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 Guard. 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 Creator/HideyukiKikuchi. The first of said novels was adapted into an anime movie by Creator/YoshiakiKawajiri (''Anime/NinjaScroll'', ''Anime/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.]]

!!This anime provides 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: ''{{Reconstructed}}'' with the HandCannon. It actually has enough recoil to justify the impact, and Taki has to brace himself against a wall to fire it.
* ChildOfTwoWorlds: [[spoiler:Taki (human) and Makie (demon)]] were intentionally paired up in hopes of conceiving a child that would fulfill the terms of a peace treaty. That the conception of said child turned [[spoiler:Makie]] into a PregnantBadass was an bonus.
* 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: This movie has a lot of sexual stuff, and a lot of it gets pretty messed up. 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 [[MarshmallowHell 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...
* FauxActionGirl: Like many eighties anime movie heroines, Makie is repeatedly kidnapped and molested throughout the film. She makes up for it at the end, though.
* FemmeFatale: Makie
* GladToBeAliveSex: [[spoiler: Makie and Renzaburou, after he rescues her from the other demons and they're both ambushed by the Spider Woman in her last fight.]]
* GoodPeopleHaveGoodSex: [[spoiler: Doubles as this, as their sex scene is very sweet and tender and Renzaburou goes out of his way to be gentle to Makie.]] Reinforcing the trope even more, 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.
* HandCannon: Renzaburou's primary weapon, its average sized but is routinely shown to be powerful enough to launch him back into whatever structure is behind him for support
* HealingHands: Makie can generate a blue glow from her hands that can heal physical injuries and restore lost LifeEnergy.
* HoneyTrap: Two of the male heroes have a high libido. There's no way this could possibly pose a problem. Cue [[spoiler: Spider Woman and the HighClassCallGirl.]]
* KillAndReplace: Subverted. A [[spoiler:demonic spider]] woman apparently kills the woman that [[spoiler:Taki Renzaburou]] has been trying to seduce for the last three months. She takes the woman's form and invites him over to her place so she can obtain his sperm. However, she later admits that she just rendered the victim unconscious instead of killing her.
* LovecraftianSuperpower: Most demonic powers are like this. [[EldritchAbomination With good reason]].
* LovecraftLite
* NoblewomansLaugh: After the female spider Dark World radical wraps up Taki and Makie in her webbing, she used this laugh as she's cutting them with her claws.
* NoNameGiven: The Spider Woman and the HighClassCallGirl.
* ObfuscatingStupidity: 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: Most of what happens to [[spoiler: 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: Renzaburou is forced to [[spoiler: leave Makie behind]], but then he leaves to [[spoiler: rescue her from her captors/rapists]] despite knowing he'll be thrown out of the Black Guard.
* 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.
* TemptingFate: Hodgkins, the manager of the hotel/safe house where Giuseppe stays, does this ''twice''. First he says "If there's any place safe in this town it's here". Later, as the assassin begins his attack he says "Don't be ridiculous, no one can break through those..." It's like he ''wanted'' the attack to succeed.
* UnsafeHaven: The hotel/safe house where Taki Renzaburou takes Giuseppe has triple strength psychic resistance walls to keep out Black World assassins. Naturally one such assassin breaks in without any particular trouble.
* 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.
* VampiricDraining: The Black World radical masquerading as a call girl absorbs [[spoiler:Giuseppe]] into herself and drains almost all of his LifeEnergy.
* WolverineClaws: Makie can extend extremely sharp blade-like beams from her fingertips.
* WomanInWhite: Makie wears a nice white gown at some point.
