• Magnificent Bastard: Taishaku-ten.
  • Moral Event Horizon: Taishakuten does plenty wrong through the story, but when 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.
  • Shocking Swerve: Lady Kendappa is the last of bloodthirsty Four Generals. W.. T... F?!
    • 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.
