* From the very first episode - the samurai who mortally wounded himself in an attempt to get [[AxCrazy Tokugawa Tadenaga]] to allow the competition to be done with wooden swords instead of real blades, by showing what a waste of lives and talent it would be for the samurai to die. Nobody in the chamber realizes that he is injured until he reveals the wound himself, meaning that [[Determinator he had already given himself the injury before he got into the meeting chamber in the first place]] and forced himself to survive until he could make his case. And then he ''pulls out his own intestines'' to make his point, and calls Tadenaga a fool before dying. [[DoomedMoralVictor It doesn't work, but damn if he didn't try.]]
