* CurbStompBattle: Most of the fights in the first movie, at least in Azumi's case. All [[spoiler: but one]] of her TrueCompanions eventually fall to [[SortingAlgorithmOfEvil the waves of enemies sent against them]], but Azumi always survives without even a scratch. By the end of the movie, her personal kill count is in the hundreds, albeit aided by a bit of UnfriendlyFire.

'''''Azumi''''' (2003) is an extremely violent action movie by Ryuhei Kitamura, based on [[Manga/{{Azumi}} a manga series]] created by Yū Koyama, focusing on the life of Azumi, a young woman brought up as part of a team of assassins charged with killing three warlords that threaten Feudal Japan with an agenda of war and bloodshed. It begins an indeterminate number of years after the Battle of Sekigahara, but as the story progresses and Azumi begins her missions, the manga introduces the characters into mainstream history. Many of the early assassination missions that Azumi undertakes are the assassinations of the prominent supporters and generals of the Toyotomi Clan, against whom the Tokugawa Clan expected to again go to war. The manga 'reveals' that many of the Toyotomi leaders who conveniently died of diseases or accidents prior to the final confrontation between the Toyotomi and Tokugawa were actually victims of assassinations by Azumi and her comrades.

Added DiffLines:

* TheLawOfDiminishingDefensiveEffort: Bijomaru uses a sword with no handguard, to show he's such a skilled fighter that he never needs to parry. Differs from most examples of this trope in that he dodges the attacks instead of just [[NoSell No Selling]] them.
