* The first few page of ''Golden Kamuy'' show the battle of Hill 203 during the UsefulNotes/RussoJapaneseWar. One anonymous Japanese soldier charge with his unit in front of machineguns and a bullet to the throat seems to put him down along with the whole unit. But no, that soldier stands up and rushes through the hailfire to mow down the Russians, impaling two with his rifle and punching down the rest with a raging face. Sugimoto Saichi "''The Immortal''" my good sir. While it is horrifying, that scene is still one awesome introduction to the story.

* Everything about the ''stenka''.
** Sugimoto, Tanigaki, Tsukishima and Koito discover the Russian tradition of stenka. Basically teams of four men make a "wall" and beat each other until a side is down. Despite being Japanese and looked down because of their shorter stature, all of them are hardened soldiers. We get to see Koito landing a mean hook into a man's jaw, Sugimoto delivering a beatdown, Tanigaki tanking a punch in the face and retaliating with a good punch and Tsukishima using his small size to avoid punches and deliver violent body shots. Even the Russians are impressed.
** The second night, Gansoku Maiharu reveals himself and we discover that he's a muscled BloodKnight who could stand up to Ishiyama. And we're also shown why! One of his punches make Sugimoto trip several paces behind, three of Sugimoto's group ganging up on him do nothing and he sweeps them away with a spin!
** Then Sugimoto goes berserk, and he becomes so savage he channels his inner Kenshiro and punches the whole crowd, becoming an unstoppable juggernaut until he's dropped into icy water.

* In Karafuto begins a SniperDuel between Ogata and a Russian soldier named Vasili. Each other see early that they are both hardened veterans so what does Ogata do? Choose a completely sloppy sniping position and stay immobile for one hour to lure Vasili into thinking Ogata is in another less obvious hiding place. As soon as Vasili fires on the bait, Ogata shoots him in the jaw, completely outsmarting his opponent.


* Sugimoto takes part in a circus' fake seppuku show as a way to atract atention over "Sugimoto the Inmortal" in an effort to find Asirpa, using a trick sword that allows him to fake drawing blood from his arms, legs and belly. A ''real'' sword is substituted for the trick one. He doesn't notice until the first cut. He ''follows through the whole routine'' cutting into his arms and legs, because stopping the trick (and losing the audience's interest) would hinder his chances to find Asirpa, '''and is stopped from opening his own belly only when a ''real'' fight starts'''.

Added DiffLines:

* Youichirou "The Manslayer" is presented as a former hitman who like Hijikata, survived into the Meiji Era. Although he is now well into his 90s and is senile, his skills are still there, as he quickly dispatch two vengeful thugs with an axe and kills four more with a stolen katana. Each of them only require a quick lethal slash. That's all this old bastard needs.

** The battle in the prison grounds is a short and bloody massacre, as the prison staff is against hardened veterans. Momentarily pinned down by a gatling gun, Sergeant Tsukishima simply tosses a grenade to kill the gun team.

* The 7th Division finally gets to show what they're capable of during the Abashiri Prison arc. Keeping tabs on Sugimoto's imminent meeting with Noppera-Bou, Tsurumi decides to really bring the big guns against the prison and its staff, as Abashiri has been transformed into a fortress by Inudou. The assault is a series of OutGambitted and CurbStompBattle moments where the 7th Division rolls over the prison.
** Seeing numerous lights on the other side of the river surrounding Abashiri prison, Inudou decides to blow up the only brigde leading to the prison. However, he's severely underestimated Tsurumi's influence and ability as an intelligence officer. The lights are a decoy, and Tsurumi deploys several destroyers thanks to an ally in the Navy to avoid the entrance, where he knows most of the guns are stored. He ships blow up a hole in the wall and allow the troops to pour into the prison.
