YMMV / Onechanbara

  • Critical Research Failure: Meta-example. Saaya's chainsaw is named Jason. Jason uses a machete, Leatherface uses a chainsaw.
  • Demonic Spiders: The ogres of Z2, especially on the harder difficulties. Not only do they hit hard, but they can cause an earthquake that momentarily stuns one of the girls, but worst of all, they have a laser attack that hits for a lot of damage but also launches the girls into the air. And if there's more than one, they'll chain their laser attacks, keeping you in the air.
  • Fridge Horror: When wrinkly, decrepit Himiko transformers into a taller, youthful, voluptuous woman, her kimono no longer fits, revealing a skimpy g-string. The Fridge Horror is when ones realizes Himiko must have been wearing it prior to transformation.
  • Goddamned Bats: The crows. Only Aya's throwing knives (or Reiko's guns) are effective against them, and they only serve to slow you down.
  • So Bad, It's Good
  • They're Just Hiding: Aya and Saki pulls this after having been declared dead at the end of Onechanbara Z. Kagura and Saaya are meant to be their replacements.
