* {{Kuudere}}: Invoked by Yahiko about Kenshin, after the latter calmly expresses disappointment at Kaoru following him to Kyoto:
---> '''Yahiko''': ''See, I told you he's alright. A man treats a woman like a pest when she's around, but he's actually very happy to see her.''

Added DiffLines:

* MagicPants: The real miracle of Shishio's origin story is not his surviving being burned to a near-crisp, but ''his pants'' surviving.


* TheChainsOfCommanding: Straight from the source material, Kenshin's remark about Okubo's aging was responded to by the latter lamenting how "it is easier to destroy and old era than to build a new one."

Added DiffLines:

* ActuallyPrettyFunny: Kenshin's first scene has him watching a kabuki play where the villain is pretty obviously a hammy expy of himself, but he just sits and laughs with the rest of the audience.


* HiddenSupplies: The Oniwabanshu have an armory stashed in the attic of their in, plus smaller caches hidden around the more public areas, such as Okina's tonfa being hidden inside a pair of scrolls left on a shelf.

* NewEraSpeech: Shishio's monologue to Saito inside his flaming lair loudly declares his desire to usher in ''another'' age reminiscent of both the worst of the Sengoku period and WorldWarII-era Imperial Japan.

* SocialDarwinist: Shishio. And much like his manga incarnation, he seeks to shape Japan into this, essentially bringing about the Imperial Japan of WorldWarII several decades early.

** The prologue involving Shishio's flaming wooden lair, [[spoiler: which involved the deaths of Saito's men and the Buddhist monks inside]], highly invokes [[KillItWithFire the massacre in Mt. Hiei]] ordered by OdaNobunaga (incidentally also Shishio's hideout in the manga/anime). Fittingly, Shishio's ambitions and charisma have been traditionally attributed to Nobunaga himself in fiction.

Added DiffLines:

** The samurai who congratulate and then stab Shishio in the failed attempt to kill him are lead by a nameless character who looks a lot like Tashiwachi Shindo, the man who similarly betrayed and assassinated Captain Sagara in the source material. The large white headdress in particular has lead some to wonder if that was a cameo appearance by Shindo.

Added DiffLines:

* CanonForeigner: Takano, a police chief in Kyoto who serves as Saito's NumberTwo, replaces the chubby nameless Police Chief that Saito rendezvous with in the original.

Added DiffLines:

* MookLieutenant: One lead's the soldiers at Shingetsu. He speaks for the group and is distinguishable from them by having an eye-patch. He's essentially given Senkaku's role in the story as the head of the soldiers stationed in the village though the film never confirms if he was the one who killed the boy's parents.


* {{Badass}}: Again, [[WorldOfBadass obviously]].
** BadassAdorable: Kenshin again.
** BadassBeard: Okubo and Okina sports one. For a non-combatant swordsmith, Shakku's beard is also remarkable.
** BadassGrandpa: Okina and Saizuchi.
** ColonelBadass: Saito again.
** CuteBruiser: Misao and Yahiko would definitely count, considering their mowing of hundreds of Shishio's mooks, in contrast to their age and size.
** HandicappedBadass: Shishio.

* [[Brief Verbal Tic Imitation BriefAccentImitation]]: When Aoshi first runs into Sano, he asks Sano if he's seen Battousai. Sano replies that there's no Battousai around here, but says 'de gozaru' at the end of his sentence rather than the more usual 'da' or 'desu', just like Kenshin.

* HistoricalInJoke: Yahiko frequently says "Why not?" in this movie, but he phrases it in a specific way: [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ee_ja_nai_ka Ee ja nai ka]]?
