Advertisement:propertag.cmd.push(function() { proper_display('tvtropes_mobile_ad_1'); })Ryo Saeba is a "sweeper" (combination hitman/private eye) who uses his Improbable Aiming Skills and all-round badassery to deal with crime in Tokyo. He also happens to be a loony Chivalrous Pervert.The City Hunter manga by Tsukasa Hojo ran in Weekly Shounen Jump from 1985 to 1992. It spawned four anime series, several OVAs and two live-action movies (one from Hong Kong starring Jackie Chan and a French one much later). It is a schizophrenic action manga with heavy elements of Sex Comedy.Ryo Saeba is an apparent orphan who was brought up in a war-torn village in Central America. At a young age, he was used as a test subject for a unique LSD derivative which resulted in him developing Super Reflexes. He trained these reflexes as a guerilla in that country's civil war before escaping to the United States and thence to Japan. In Japan, he teamed up with former police detective Hideyuki Makimura to form the "City Hunter" sweeper agency; ostensibly, he's a Private Detective, but will go further for certain clients - he's also a Hitman with a Heart.Advertisement:propertag.cmd.push(function() { proper_display('tvtropes_mobile_ad_2'); })The "comedy" comes into play whenever Ryo sees a beautiful woman. Somehow, that LSD derivative had as much of a positive effect on his sexuality as it did his reflexes. He has a sex drive of truly epic proportions, and a physique guaranteed to make just about any woman happy to be its focus... which is just about the only Restraining Bolt this Lovable Sex Maniac has - he knows that he's everything he claims to be, and is thus always patient enough to wait until the girl's in the mood to get wild. He's not above what most would consider outright sexual harassment, however... as long as the girl seems amused by it.In other words, What If? Ataru Moroboshi was James Bond - right down to being the hero of his own series!Early in the manga, Hideyuki dies on a case, asking Ryo to look after his much younger adoptive sister, Kaori. Kaori, a tomboyish Tsundere (who is of course Beautiful All Along) quickly takes her brother's place as Ryo's partner and business manager. She is decidedly unimpressed by Ryo's lecherous ways and often interrupts his seduction attempts. Despite this, the two quickly form a strong emotional bond - though Kaori is never sure whether Ryo's excuse for not acting on their easily noticed Unresolved Sexual Tension is really because It's Not You, It's My Enemies, or if her lecherous partner is just too damned horny to ever settle down.Advertisement:propertag.cmd.push(function() { proper_display('tvtropes_mobile_ad_3'); })Important recurring characters include "Umibozu", a rival sweeper who has ties to Ryo going back to Central America, and Saeko Nogami, the daughter of the police chief and a police detective in her own right. Saeko often hires the City Hunter team to look into affairs the police can't publicly investigate or cannot prove that an actual crime has occurred.The standard procedure for hiring City Hunter is to leave a message for "XYZ" at the Shinjuku train station, after which Kaori makes a preliminary investigation before introducing the prospective client to Ryo. Naturally, many of their cases bypass this procedure. (Especially if the client is a beautiful woman.)The manga Angel Heart takes place in an Alternate Universe in which Kaori has died and her heart was transplanted into the new story's heroine, who then encounters an older Ryo Saeba.Midway into March 2018, Sunrise announced a new movie: City Hunter: Shinjuku Private Eyes, slated for theaters in February 2019, 20 years after the last one. In April 2019, Sunrise revealed that Discotek Media has licensed not just this movie, but also all other TV shows, OVAs and previous films in the series.A French Live-Action Adaptation, City Hunter: The Cupid's Perfume, was also released in February 2019.Ryo appeared as a playable character in Jump Force.For the Korean Series of the same name, see The City Hunter.For the spinoff, see City Hunter Rebirth

Who would expect Umibozu to tell Miki she had to kill City Hunter if she wanted to marry him? Also, Ryo and Kaori made a false assumption on the reason, and thought he didn't want to marry Miki because she was Terminator in a drag (Hilarity Ensued when they saw her);

Darker and Edgier
 City Hunter (Manga) / int_14beeefd
comment
Darker and Edgier: The first two volumes of the manga (and thus the first 7-9 episodes of the anime, which adapted material from these volumes) are considerably darker than the rest of the series (up until the final manga volume, when the darker tone returns), with fewer mokkori antics (Ryo is general is far more subdued in his perversions than later in the series, often merely touching a woman's legs as opposed to the full-throttle 'mokkori pounce' he later becomes known for), a darker, quieter atmosphere (with few gags, more moments devoid of any dialogue, several Tear Jerker moments and Ryo actually having to kill the antagonists at the end of each story, instead of disarming them), a grittier, more realistic tone (probably due to the absence of Kaori's 100-ton hammer), Ryo facing legitimate criminals as is more realistic for a 'sweeper' (silencers murdering innocents, Arabian arms dealers, a syndicate freezing young womens' bodies for use as store-window mannequins and most famously the Central American drug organization Union Teope (Red Pegasus in the anime)) instead of henchmen or lackeys (often those of a corrupt business tycoon or some other form of non-criminal) as is common later in the series and a more subdued art style, making greater use of realistic angles, designs and tone and less of cartoonish expressions and character designs (Ryo donning his later perverted grin is rare in earlier manga stories and only appears in one of the first five episodes of the anime). Naturally, these differences to the series' later stories have created instances of Broken Base.

Badass Adorable: Sure, Kaori and the younger girls in the cast qualify, but it's actually Ryo in particular who personifies this trope through his lovably frank The Casanova Manchild behavior, coupled with a sweet and gentle sensitivity. Akira Kamiya sure is good at playing sensitive and kind hearted badasses, isn't he?

The first chapter of the manga ends with Ryo telling his cancer-ill client to not pay him with her life insurance but to allow him to be her man in her last days, but we never see her again (she could be the woman who jumped Ryo in his home and considered himself his fiancee that appeared in the following story arc, but they acted very differently and Only Six Faces didn't help).

Comic-Book Time: Averted. Characters grow old as the manga progresses, and, in Rosemary Moon's story arc, Kaori, Miki and Kasumi even complained they'd become old hags if the manga continued for too long. Invoked by Ryo to justify why he still says he's twenty. Played straight with Shinjuku Private Eyes, which is recognizably set in 2019 despite none of the characters looking any older.

And This Is for...
 City Hunter (Manga) / int_19e41d8f
comment
The most sadistic event happened right after the first chapter. Ryo had been hired to apprehend a serial killer specialized in raping and murdering teenagers and young women, so Ryo started making clear he knew his face and where he lived, placed a fake bomb in his car, and when he still refused to give himself up to the police Ryo shot him in the gun hand, the legs and the other shoulder with crossbow bolts that penetrated enough in the muscles to hurt a lot and short enough they were impossible to take out without cutting him open, all while giving him an And This Is for... speech, dedicating each bolt to every single girl the guy raped and killed. And when he still refused to give himself up (and instead tried to run over Ryo and his client) he got shot in the head with his own gun.

Soft Glass: Usually averted, as most people will break them before plowing through the window, and those thrown by Umibozu gets injured by the glass (and other things). The only ones who are likely to pull this are Ryo and Umibozu, who are noted to be a lot stronger than most people. Saeko's introductory story arc in the manga had the subversion as a Running Gag: Ryo would try to jump through windows only to crash into the bulletproof crystal they were made of. On the other hand, his Gag Penis broke a small hole through the bulletproof crystal...

An even earlier and more notable case is Umibozu's terrible fear of cats, especially if they're cute kittens. It leads to funny scenes, and to plot-point moments as well.

Short Tank: Kaori is a combination of this, a Bifauxnen, and a Clingy Jealous Girl. She spends most of the series in unflattering clothing and talks in a very masculine way. It should be noted that while she is a Bifauxnen, she manages to invariably draw the, er, attention of the main character whenever put into feminine clothing and makeup.

Framing the Guilty Party: In the manga version of Rosemary Moon's story arc, the villain, an international terrorist, gets also framed for Rosemary's murder in order to allow her to escape from her past as a sweeper. The rationale to get Saeko's help was that the villain had committed enough crimes he would get at least life prison, so adding another crime to his record wouldn't affect the sentence (that and Ryo promised to cancel her debt).

Chekhov's Gun
 City Hunter (Manga) / int_22cf536c
comment
Chekhov's Gun: When Makimura was killed by a victim of the Angel Dust Ryo reacted badly to the mention of the drug, and was astonishingly well-informed on its effects and its makers of Union Teope in spite of them being newcomers in Japan (and him having never heard the name before Hideyuki mentioned it). Near the end of the story it's discovered that Ryo was the original test subject of Angel Dust, and the founder and leader of Union Teope was his adopted father. Ryo's backstory is hinted at in many places by Ryo, other characters who knows it and small happenings before Rosemary Moon decides to reveal it. Even then, she left out some parts that would be revealed only later. Not just Ryo's backstory, but also other parts of the story, sometimes mixed with Continuity Nods. For example, in his first appearance Silver Fox tried to kill Ryo's target with a rifle chambered for .308 Winchester, and at the start of his second appearance the first hint of him being the villain is the sight of a rifle usually chambered for that round.

Good Guns, Bad Guns
 City Hunter (Manga) / int_25afd4a3
comment
Good Guns, Bad Guns: Subverted: the characters tend to use guns that work, with the interesting result of the villain Silver Fox using exclusively two "good" guns (the Remington Model 700 rifle and the Browning Hi-Power) specifically because they're among the best weapons on the market for their job (the Model 700 being a very accurate rifle and the basis for two military sniper rifles, and the Hi-Power being one of the best pistols ever). Played with in Saeko's debut arc: the villains of that arc used NATO weapons, but had been fooled into serving the villain and would have killed him themselves had they known of it. Played with again in the final arc: the villains used Warsaw Pact weapons, but, being rogue units of the army of a country, those who defeated them in their home country are implied to use the same weapons.

Cruel to Be Kind
 City Hunter (Manga) / int_25c7b33a
comment
Cruel to Be Kind: Ryo does this constantly. Since it is dangerous to become acquainted with him due to his profession, whenever a client is getting too attached to him, Ryo becomes (more) insensitive, rude or lecherous in order to drive her away: In one story a client was considering giving up her dreams for Ryo... so Ryo pretended that he only wanted to have sex with her because he thinks he can not to make a honest woman happy. Ryo had spent an arc protecting an old friend of his: a weaponsmith that wanted to quit her job for her daughter's sake. However she was considering to go back on her decision in order to remain with Ryo. So he made her believing that, should she stay in his apartment, he and his friends would force her to constantly fix their weapons. Disgusted, she decided leaving (although she eventually understood and accepted that Ryo was trying to do).

The Dreaded
 City Hunter (Manga) / int_2ae29c0d
comment
The Dreaded: Ryo and Umibozu are quite feared among other sweepers and criminal groups in general. So far we've seen yakuzas and thugs running when they realize they're facing the goddamn City Hunter (the list includes a yakuza boss who switched from being very sure of victory to begging for forgiveness as soon as he realized who his son had provoked and a hitman who didn't fear Umibozu (as he knew his one weak spot) almos shitting himself when he realized he was facing City Hunter too), Kaori plainly admitting she's terrified of Umibozu (that was even before she found out who he was), and people being terrified of Umibozu due his sheer size and tendency to bring down trees with a punch when he's pissed. Kaibara, boss of Union Teope and Ryo's stepfather, is so feared that Ryo and Umibozu are terrified of him, and Mick Angel accepted the job of killing Ryo only out of fear of him.

Undead Tax Exemption
 City Hunter (Manga) / int_2d407620
comment
Undead Tax Exemption: Averted: Ryo is legally dead since he was three and the aircraft he was on with his parents crashed, and has returned to Japan as a stowaway on a ship. Because of this he doesn't legally exist, and can't hold a real job, administer his own money (Kaori does it for him), or marrying.

The ones mentioned above continue for the entire series, but most arcs have their own exclusive running gags, like the Ryujin boss being compared to a tanuki (even by his daughter!), or a fashion designer friend of Kaori trying to hire particularly good-looking people as models (including Saeko while she was trying to arrest her. Poor Saeko fell on the floor when she realized it was this and not an attempted bribe) and criticizing bad taste in clothing (including that of the Big Bad of the arc, twice).

Embarrassing Nickname
 City Hunter (Manga) / int_317629db
comment
Embarrassing Nickname: A few. Umibozu (a kind of sea monster) was supposed to have the codename 'Falcon', but Ryo nicknamed him Umibozu and it supplanted the nickname. As retaliation, Ryo was nicknamed 'The Stallion of Shinjuku' (it didn't stuck, and Ryo has a better sense of humor than Umi). Finally, according to Ryo, the cop duo of Saeko and Hideyuki (former police officer) was known as 'The Beauty and the Beast of Tokyo Police' due their close partnership, great ability and looks. Kasumi Asou alias Theif n°305 was nicknamed 'Flying Little Butt' by Ryo due what he first saw of her. When she reappeared, Ryo remembered the nickname first.

Even Evil Has Standards: Ryo will never try and seduce a minor, no matter how sexy she is. If she's sexy he'll take a few peeks, but never touch. Of course, if the girl grows up she becomes fair game... And he once tried to groom a ten-years old girl to grow up in love with him (he renounced because he lacked the patience. She still fell for him). The reason Mick Angel seduces the women of his targets before killing them is to prevent them from suffering from losing their beloved ones. He also hits on engaged and married women even if their men are not his target, but he may accept failure, while never attacks his targets until he won their women's heart.

Shipper on Deck: Umibozu ships Ryo/Kaori hard, trying multiple times to make Kaori realize Ryo is in love with her (Kaori never understood) and even setting them up to sleep in the same bed. On the same ship we have Doc, Miki, Sayuri Tachiki (Kaori's biological sister), Eriko Kitahara (Kaori's fashion-obsessed high school friend), and Saeko's little sister Yuka (who openly told Ryo to hurry up and marry Kaori). Other Ryo/Kaori shippers of the I Want My Beloved to Be Happy kind are Saeko, Kazue Natori and Mick Angel: the first always refrained from paying Ryo with sex (as he asks after every job) because she realized Ryo had fallen for Kaori, Kazue, after a brief period where she wanted to replace Kaori both in love and job, started shipping them , and the latter, realizing he wouldn't be able to take Kaori from Ryo, decided to entrust her to his friend and tried to make him declare his love.

Kick the Son of a Bitch
 City Hunter (Manga) / int_32768814
comment
Kick the Son of a Bitch: Ryo is quite sadistic with his enemies, at least in a funny way. In the manga version the General wasn't killed in a duel immediatly after he appeared, but had his beloved jewelry invaded by pigs (that he hates) and the jewels eaten by said pig, his beloved art collection destroyed and the money he was supposed to bring to his boss stolen from under his nose (with Ryo declaring he could kill him whenever he wanted and purposefully leaving him alive) before their duel. Ryo had already declared himself the most sadistic person in Japan since after destroying the art collection. In another occasion he captured two opposing hitmen and, to discover who they worked for, stripped them to their underwear, tied them to the floor, placed bottles of nitroglycerine in their hands, placed bird food on their body and set a flock of chickens on them. They broke immediatly, but because they didn't know who had hired them they got left with the birds and no idea the bottles actually contained water. As soon as they escaped they had their client tell them his identity, just in case they got captured again (they did). One arc ended with the villain, his son and his guards impotent. The very first: in the first manga chapter/anime episode Ryo was hired to kill a boxer who fixed his matches with blackmail (and murdered his client's fiancee when he refused to give up a champion shot), and did it in such a way it looked like the champion killed him and threw him out of the ring with a single punch, right after he declared he would win the match in that round. The most sadistic event happened right after the first chapter. Ryo had been hired to apprehend a serial killer specialized in raping and murdering teenagers and young women, so Ryo started making clear he knew his face and where he lived, placed a fake bomb in his car, and when he still refused to give himself up to the police Ryo shot him in the gun hand, the legs and the other shoulder with crossbow bolts that penetrated enough in the muscles to hurt a lot and short enough they were impossible to take out without cutting him open, all while giving him an And This Is for... speech, dedicating each bolt to every single girl the guy raped and killed. And when he still refused to give himself up (and instead tried to run over Ryo and his client) he got shot in the head with his own gun.

A story arc used "going to pee" for "exacting righteous revenge on a Yakuza clan that burned down a park just to Kick the Dog and believed they'd get away with it thanks to the lack of evidence". Ryo was one of those who used it, and his revenge had a level of epicness proportional to his Gag Penis.

Anguished Declaration of Love: Discussed and deconstructed: Ryo did declare his love for Kaori when it appeared he would die on Kaibara's boat, but later couldn't be sure if he really loved her or if it actually was the instinctive need for reproduction that pops out whenever it appears you're about to die, and had to take advantage of Kaori's temporary amnesia to try and reflect about his true feelings. Later played straight, as by then Ryo had thought about his true feelings and found out that yes, he truly loved Kaori.

Skewed Priorities: Near the end of the story arc involving Miyuki Kobayashi, when armed criminals pursue Kaori and Miyuki in a Car Chase into a narrow alleyway and the girls, trying to flee from said criminals, find more of them in a car ahead of them, Kaori, not wishing to take the risk of waiting too long for Ryo to catch up to rescue them, suggests that they just ram the car ahead in hope of escaping on foot afterwards. Miyuki, seeing no other way, agrees, but adds that Kaori and Ryo would have to pay for the cost for the car repair. Kaori understandably calls her out on it.

Sunglasses at Night: Umibozu. His first appearances in the manga occasionally showed him without sunglasses, but he later started wearing them all the time, even when disguised as a statue. Being almost blind, and later becoming completely blind, it doesn't affect him in the slightest, just adding to his scariness.

Overprotective Dad: Once in a while we have some client like this, like the rich man with a naive daughter (naivety caused by him being overprotective, by the way) who, upon her getting a job in a fast food, hired City Hunter to defend her (that was before he found out of the mafia war in the area of the fast food), or the politician who hired Umibozu to retrieve his runaway daughter and murder the guy she had ran away with (luckily, the daughter, knowing that her father was capable to sick a bazooka-wielding killer on her boyfriend, was using Ryo as bait for the expected killer). Umibozu acts as this toward Maki Himuro, the daughter of his commander in his mercenary days: his reaction to Ryo having a mokkori before her is to shoot at Ryo's penis with a Smith & Wesson Model 29.

Stock Footage
 City Hunter (Manga) / int_4856ac40

Stock Footage: Barely ever used, but sometimes a particular shot of Ryo loading his pistol and snapping it shut is reused. More noticeably, often when the foreign girl of the week is flying back to her home country (or a local girl is leaving for whatever reason) the same shot of a SUNRISE AIR LINS jet taking off is used. A more noticeable example occurred whenever he had to fight large groups. While the target mooks would be drawn to match the mooks of the episode, Ryo was always depicted using the same five or six attacks(in still frames, no less!), often in the same sequence: among them, a rear kick, elbow to the chest, backfist, uppercut.

Happily Adopted: Kaori.

He planned to tell Kaori on her 20th birthday, but he died when Kaori was five, Hideyuki, who should have told her in his place, died on that very day before telling her, and Ryo (who found out by Hideyuki before his death) never gathered the courage to tell her. A flashback episode shows that Kaori found out in high school and doesn't care: as far as she's concerned, Hideyuki and his father are her family, and she never bothered searching for her biological mother and sister.

comment
Early Installment Weirdness: The first few manga stories/TV episodes have a much darker and grittier tone than the rest of the series, with less comedy, more melancholic background music (in the case of the anime), more realistic character designs, fewer mokkori antics (with Ryo often touching a woman's legs instead of pouncing on them), Makimura as Ryo's partner instead of Kaori (thus bringing a lack of the infamous Hyperspace Mallet from later stories), a higher adherence to real-world gunplay technicals, a more 'hard-boiled' atmosphere and Ryo being forced to kill the antagonists at the end of each story instead of disarming them as with later installments of the series. Most of these details disappear after Kaori begins using her hammer.

Nobody Poops: Averted: not only we see a character going to the toilet rather early in the story, but Ryo uses the 'I need to poop' excuse rather often to do whatever he's planning and still gets away with it because he does it rather often (Kaori even complained that his trips to the toilet are always very long, right as Ryo dresses himself as a woman to try and catch a fake City Hunter). It also got lampshaded in the second Union Teope arc: after finding out that Ryo had not left her behind to go into battle but was in the toilet, Kaori screamed at him that nobody had ever heard of an hero that goes to poop before the battle, only for Ryo to reply that it's the smart thing to do (and calling her constipated).

Why Did It Have to Be Snakes?
 City Hunter (Manga) / int_5beef860
comment
Why Did It Have to Be Snakes?: Ryo is aerophobic (in travel only, helicopters are fine) which is most probably attributed to his previous experience with planes. A few episode of the anime where he flies with no problem were made before this was revealed in the manga, though. An even earlier and more notable case is Umibozu's terrible fear of cats, especially if they're cute kittens. It leads to funny scenes, and to plot-point moments as well.

The Casanova: Ryo. He's actually a very successful one until Kaori came along... Even then, Kaori can only prevent him from consummating in their home, as they will fall for him, with very few exceptions. Mick Angel, an American friend of Ryo, has the hobby of seducing married or otherwise engaged women. Especially if he's been hired to kill their man.

Crossdresser: One of the movie's most highlighted point is about Ryo (Jackie Chan) crossdressing as Chun Li. Ryo crossdressed a few times, usually to disguise himself (he can even make his Gag Penis disappear if someone checks his gender!) but, one time, he was trying to not be outed as City Hunter and faked having a job in a gay pub... Unsettling Gender Reveal: Ryo seduced a woman only to discover it was a gay man. Twice.

Oh, No... Not Again!: Standard reaction from anyone who has to fight Ryo more than once. The most notable example is the boss of the Unryu gang: the first time he encountered Ryo he started begging for forgiveness upon realizing his son has pissed off City Hunter, and sometimes later his face cried a mix of this and Oh, Crap! when Ryo barged in his house and he realized the women he had just kidnapped were Ryo's partner and client.

Other Ryo/Kaori shippers of the I Want My Beloved to Be Happy kind are Saeko, Kazue Natori and Mick Angel: the first always refrained from paying Ryo with sex (as he asks after every job) because she realized Ryo had fallen for Kaori, Kazue, after a brief period where she wanted to replace Kaori both in love and job, started shipping them , and the latter, realizing he wouldn't be able to take Kaori from Ryo, decided to entrust her to his friend and tried to make him declare his love.

But for Me, It Was Tuesday: A magnificent example comes from Rosemary Moon's arc. The villain is a terrorist named David Clive, formerly the chief of a foreign secret service until Ryo and Rosemary exposed him as a traitor, now "The Terrorist From Hell". When Umibozu reveals his identity, Rosemary has an Oh, Crap! moment, while Ryo completely forgot about him. Becomes a Brick Joke when Ryo finally looks at him and declares he still can't remember his face.

Union Teope in the anime: they have a one-episode appearance to kill Hideyuki (with the episode leaving out most of the story arc, but then disappear after that, with only another episode where they show up. Averted in the manga, where their reason to disappear is clearly stated (Ryo was dead-set to destroy them and had utterly mocked and fooled their best hitman before killing him, so they had to find someone capable of doing the job before returning to Japan), they set in motion Sayaka Ryujin's story arc, and return at the end of the manga.

Dying Moment of Awesome: Hideyuki. Attacked by a man dosed with Angel Dust and surprised at arms length by what was by now a killing machine almost Immune to Bullets and capable to tear down a car bare-handed, he somehow succeeded in killing the zombified man, and, while mortally wounded, managed to walk to Ryo's home, warn his friend about the danger, and give him a ring for Kaori before finally succumbing. Becomes even more awesome when later appearances of people dosed with Angel Dust make clear that anyone else but Ryo will die in terror when attacked by those people.

Knight of Cerebus: Sonia Field. Her story arc, where Ryo is revealed to having killed his partner and Sonia's father in a duel due him being blackmailed by a syndicate with his daughter's life, is a major Gut Punch that suddenly brings back the dark atmosphere of the early part of the manga. The following story arcs, while more light hearted, still keeps it, with one even having a veiled mention of Union Teope before the organization showed up again in person. Ryo's old acquaintances from US in general: Rosemary Moon revealed most of Ryo's past to Kaori and the readers and tried to kill him to save her fiancee, Sonia Field has been already described above, and Mick Angel brought Union Teope back in the story, having forcefully hired by them to kill Ryo and being blown up by a person dosed with Angel Dust when he renounces to complete the job. Saeko is a mild example: whenever she's involved, the story arc is usually less comedic than normal.

Sayaka Ryujin's arc featured a free for all for the title, due the crazyness of all characters: Sayaka is left speechless at Ryo's antics (and her own inability to get rid of him) and at Kaori kidnapping the guys she had sent to kidnap her, Ryo and Kaori are unable to tell who's crazier between Sayaka (who tried everything to rid herself of Ryo) and her father (his reaction to Sayaka faking to seduce Ryo to get him in trouble with Kaori was crying: "Saeba! Why did you refuse my daughter?!"), and all of them look positively sane when Torakichi Seiken shows up with enormous platform boots and tries to pass himself as a much bigger man (Sayaka actually facepalmed when she realized the biker gang giving her trouble worked for Torakichi, and continued facepalming until Ryo recovered from the shock of having to deal with that idiot and his gang and mopped the floor with them).

Animation Bump: The 1989 movie "3.57 Magnum", which utilizes noticeably more fluent and well-toned animation than the anime's typical episodes. Of course, the improved animation quality also allows Ryo's mokkori antics and Kaori's subsequent punishment of him to be taken Up to Eleven. The first six episodes of the anime itself have superior animation quality to the rest of the show (sans a few episodes at the beginning of the second season, which have even better animation) with a higher attention to realistic tone and movements. Unfortunately averted by the end of the second season, however, where the anime's art style begins to take on a more generic appearance and the movements become more stilted.

Angel Dust blocks pain receptors, causes a permanent adrenaline rush and makes the victim extremely suggestible, and in one case caused him to go into a rage, and the withdrawal tends to kill (apparently only Ryo survived). The drug PCP, also known as Angel Dust, has similar effects (even if on a lesser scale), and the withdrawal can cause seizures.

What Happened to the Mouse?
 City Hunter (Manga) / int_863fa679
comment
What Happened to the Mouse?: The first chapter of the manga ends with Ryo telling his cancer-ill client to not pay him with her life insurance but to allow him to be her man in her last days, but we never see her again (she could be the woman who jumped Ryo in his home and considered himself his fiancee that appeared in the following story arc, but they acted very differently and Only Six Faces didn't help). The strange people living in Ryo's building. They showed up in one anime episode/manga story arc, and then disappeared. Sayaka Ryujin moves into Ryo's home halfway her story arc with the stated intention to marry Ryo, but at the end of her arc she disappears with no apparent reason. Union Teope in the anime: they have a one-episode appearance to kill Hideyuki (with the episode leaving out most of the story arc, but then disappear after that, with only another episode where they show up. Averted in the manga, where their reason to disappear is clearly stated (Ryo was dead-set to destroy them and had utterly mocked and fooled their best hitman before killing him, so they had to find someone capable of doing the job before returning to Japan), they set in motion Sayaka Ryujin's story arc, and return at the end of the manga. Kasumi Aso: at the end of her story arc she starts working at the Cat's Eye, but she doesn't reappear in the anime. The chief and Kazue disappear after Silver Fox's second arc. This is very notable because Kazue initial story arc was based on a killer bee and the need to find an antidote that doesn't cause impotence, antidote that reappeared when the villain of Kasumi Aso's second arc hypnotized Ryo into impotence.

Black-and-Gray Morality: Let's face it, Ryo is a criminal guilty of multiple counts of murder, perversion, vandalism, breaking and entering, theft, assault, and illegal carrying and ownership of guns (in Japan it's illegal to even hold a gun without licence, and you can't own pistols unless you're a member of the police or the Self-Defence Force), and Kaori, his accomplice, is guilty of the same crimes barring the first two (she only has a few counts of attempted murder). They are our heroes, and deal with worse people on a daily basis.

Ryo. He has a sex drive of truly epic proportions, and a physique guaranteed to make just about any woman happy to be its focus... which is just about the only Restraining Bolt this Lovable Sex Maniac has — he knows that he's everything he claims to be, and is thus always patient enough to wait until the girl's in the mood to get wild. He's not above what most would consider outright sexual harassment, however... as long as the girl seems amused by it.

comment
There Is No Kill Like Overkill: Handguns chambered for magnum rounds are very much overkill against unarmored targets that aren't Umibozu, yet Ryo and co. use them almost exclusively. In a more typical example, Ryo once used a rifle chambered for .500 Nitro Express rounds (a hunting round created to take down big game such as buffalos, rhinoceros and elephants) as part of a complicated scheme to give a very humiliating death to a boxer who fixed his matches with threats and blackmail, and took care of explaining how powerful it was beforehand.

A-Team Firing: Kaori, despite in some episodes is armed with everything but the kitchen sink, can never hit a single baddie.

Almost Lethal Weapons
 City Hunter (Manga) / int_97e1ca8c
comment
Almost Lethal Weapons: Happened thrice. Every other time it's averted: people actually hit by bullets will have the wounds cripple them for months if not for life. The first time Ryo shot through his own hand to slow down his bullet and avoid collateral damage without suffering permanent damage (it's mentioned that Ryo avoided hitting the bones exactly to prevent the crippling damage that would have happened to anyone without Improbable Aiming Skills). The second time Umibozu had been shot in the back with three .38 bullets, but he only needed to flex his muscles to expel them with little damage (Ryo immediately pointed out that nobody else could have done it). In the final instance Ryo managed to knock out a thug with a bullet from his .357 Magnum (again, it was a special circumstance: Ryo's Improbable Aiming Skills had allowed him to make the bullet pass near the head of the thug, knocking him out with the shock of it).

Immune to Bullets: Anyone dosed with Angel Dust becomes functionally this. They will eventually die, but unless it's an headshot it will take a while, and in the meantime they'll kill you. And not even an headshot is a sure way to kill them on the spot. Umibozu is partly immune: due his sheer size, he can easily shrug off being shot with .38 Special bullets.

Hand Cannon: Umibozu is particularly fond of them, and they're needed against some of the enemies the heroes end up against. It's deconstructed too as it's shown how cumbersome, unwieldly and even overpowered such big weapons can be. The General took this trope to the letter: his right forearm had been replaced with an assault rifle with underslug grenade launcher. He also had a bigger grenade launcher in the leg as a last-resort weapon.

Mick Angel too: not only he's Ryo's American counterpart, but he tends to target already engaged women (we've seen him successfully seducing a woman about to marry and try and seduce a newly wed woman and Kaori), where Ryo specifically limits himself to look when he finds out a woman is already in love with someone else.

Continuity Nod: Many. One above all merits mention: in one of the earliest chapters, Ryo demonstrated that you can prevent an uncocked revolver from firing by just holding the cylinder, and every time Kaori (who was receiving gun-using lessons earlier in that chapter) is holding a revolver the hammer is cocked. It verges on Call-Back when Kaori is held at gun point by a revolver-wielding yakuza and not only blocks him in the same way but openly recalls that incident, berating herself for consciously forgetting why she cocked the hammer every time.

Gag Dub: The French dubbing, in a similar way to Fist of the North Star's, though not to the same extent. This extends only to the bad guys whoses voices are way to ridiculous to sound remotely scary, However the main character's voices are spot on. This was because the series was too serious and violent for a kid show ( Or at least it was aired in hours when kids most likely watch tv. ). The movies are exempt of this.

In another occasion he captured two opposing hitmen and, to discover who they worked for, stripped them to their underwear, tied them to the floor, placed bottles of nitroglycerine in their hands, placed bird food on their body and set a flock of chickens on them. They broke immediatly, but because they didn't know who had hired them they got left with the birds and no idea the bottles actually contained water. As soon as they escaped they had their client tell them his identity, just in case they got captured again (they did).

Fate Worse than Death: Ryo once claimed that impotence is this, and that he would have never taken the antidote to the killer bees poison had he known of the side effect. He then declared that if he couldn't recover his Gag Penis he'd go in Morocco to have his gender switched. Of course, at the end of the story arc Ryo's Gag Penis had been restored by a perfected antidote, and the villains had been made impotent in the same way without having access to the perfected antidote. Given how Ryo hates this condition, a later story arc had an hypnotist make Ryo impotent, with the previous antidote not working for obvious reasons. The end of the story arc had Ryo recover his potence and trick the hypnotist into making himself permanently impotent.

It Makes Sense in Context: Invoked by Ryo in multiple occasions, telling about something he did but willingly leaving out the context. One example above everything, from Rosemary Moon's arc.

Subverted: the characters tend to use guns that work, with the interesting result of the villain Silver Fox using exclusively two "good" guns (the Remington Model 700 rifle and the Browning Hi-Power) specifically because they're among the best weapons on the market for their job (the Model 700 being a very accurate rifle and the basis for two military sniper rifles, and the Hi-Power being one of the best pistols ever).

Improbable Aiming Skills
 City Hunter (Manga) / int_bcd27e37
comment
Another one showed up in the anime as the side arm of Geruma of the Lodos Mafia, who was even faster than Ryo (Ryo survived only because he was almost as fast and shot his bullet in air, and then shot him before the hitman recovered from the shock of having a bullet shot down in air). The gun is implied to be chambered either for the .44 AMP or the more widespread .45 Winchester Magnum, as the following scene shows the gun is more powerful than Ryo's Python. In a mild subversion, Ryo and Geruma explains one of the problems of using an Auto Mag: it's not a good weapon for a quick draw (the fact Geruma could still outdraw Ryo is a minor moment of awesomeness).

Cool and Unusual Punishment
 City Hunter (Manga) / int_c007c53
comment
Cool and Unusual Punishment: In one story arc Ryo had been made impotent by the antidote to the poison of a killer bee. At the end of said story arc (and after a successive version of the antidote restored Ryo's Gag Penis), Ryo punished the ones who had the killer bees created by having them stung with the killer bees and giving them the initial version of the antidote, with obvious results. Doubles as Fate Worse than Death, as they were as much perverted as Ryo. One hospital in Tokyo has a rather unusual punishment for troublesome patients: isolate them from other patients, forbid visits and entrust them to the incredibly goofy nurse Yoshimi Iwai, whose botched cares have already killed at least eleven people and injured the rest.

The reason Mick Angel seduces the women of his targets before killing them is to prevent them from suffering from losing their beloved ones. He also hits on engaged and married women even if their men are not his target, but he may accept failure, while never attacks his targets until he won their women's heart.

Shout-Out
 City Hunter (Manga) / int_c75df49a
comment
Shout-Out: Akira Kamiya pays tribute to his most famous role in Season 1 Episode 07 with the same rapid-fire high pitch Kiai... though this time in the context of a Pin-Fingers game like the mess-hall scene in Aliens. The original manga version of the same story has Ryo putting seaweed on his forehead to emulate Kenshiro's eyebrows and doing an impression of "You Are Already Dead". Goku's rather erm, forceful method of differentiating male from female is brought up when Ryo wonders how a prostitute is going to determine her future clients' gender after she tried to hit on Kaori. At one point in the anime, a child Ryo is looking after plays Athena. A particularly epic one has Ryo recreating the "Did he fire six shots or only five?" scene from Dirty Harry, offering to spare the life of the Yakuza boss he was using in place of the punk if he could tell him if he still had a bullet in it, with the boss recognizing the movie he ripped the scene from. In one scene Ryo compares an enemy goon with Commando since "Terminator is too old". In a chapter Kaori picks a Famicom to play with a child.

In the same arc, Ryo proved himself superior to Fumakuchi by shooting the barrel of his rifle at the same distance. Fumakuchi told himself that nobody could pull that shot and it had been a fluke, only for Ryo to do it again, following with Fumakuchi's belt and the buttons of his shirt, and concluding with calling the Olympic Games a contest between amateur (and they are, in fact) and bragging being the best professional sniper in the world, superior to any Olympic champion.

What the Hell, Hero?: Ryo and Kaori's casual dismissal of other people's health and tendency to cause extreme property damage has been called out many times, to no effect. Kaori is the worst offender of the two, having done things like swapping the radiography of Ryo's leg with the one of a yakuza who had just broke his own (Ryo was to stay in the hospital to guard his charge. A few seconds after Ryo called her out on this, the poor Yakuza started crying in pain because the nurses were forcing him to walk and leave), and attacked Ryo with a defibrillator (her answer when Ryo called her out was that she could restart his heart with it).

Unusual Euphemism: Various, including 'mokkori' for anything related to sex. A story arc used "going to pee" for "exacting righteous revenge on a Yakuza clan that burned down a park just to Kick the Dog and believed they'd get away with it thanks to the lack of evidence". Ryo was one of those who used it, and his revenge had a level of epicness proportional to his Gag Penis.

Didn't See That Coming: May happen from while to while. Umibozu tend to be involved in the 'No Way I Could Have Seen It Coming' rather often: In his first named appearance Ryo couldn't possibly have seen coming that an actress would be able to hire Umibozu to kill herself; Umibozu's second appearance had him hire Ryo to impersonate him with a girl (Ryo didn't know that Umibozu was a friend of her late father and had paid her music education. Once that was known, it was clear why); Who would expect Umibozu to tell Miki she had to kill City Hunter if she wanted to marry him? Also, Ryo and Kaori made a false assumption on the reason, and thought he didn't want to marry Miki because she was Terminator in a drag (Hilarity Ensued when they saw her); The two assistants of a Corrupt Corporate Executive tried to hire Umibozu to kill City Hunter and his charges (one of which being a girl 11 years old), not knowing that not only Umibozu and Ryo were allies (sort of) and he doesn't kill children, but had even convinced Ryo to take that job.

Voice Changeling: Ryo can make a flawless impression of any voice after hearing it once, often accompanying it with a pathetic disguise. Silver Fox is implied to be one: he could imitate the voice of a professional photographer well enough to fool his model, and then imitated Ryo's voice well enough to fool Kaori. Kaori still saw through his disguise, but that's because she was expecting something like that and had a test ready (namely, her bra. Silver Fox faked being aroused, but Ryo wouldn't have been).

The first six episodes of the anime itself have superior animation quality to the rest of the show (sans a few episodes at the beginning of the second season, which have even better animation) with a higher attention to realistic tone and movements. Unfortunately averted by the end of the second season, however, where the anime's art style begins to take on a more generic appearance and the movements become more stilted.

Groin Attack
 City Hunter (Manga) / int_eaf5a1ac
comment
Groin Attack: Ryo takes his share of shots to that big target. Note that you have to have a strong foot or use an implement, because in at least an occasion the attacker broke his foot... In Episode 14 of the original series, Saeko is kidnapped by members of a local gang who's abducting beautiful young women. In her prison cell, Saeko gains the attention of a nearby guard and upon distracting him through the use of her sweet talk, Saeko kicks him in the groin, managing to get the cell keys from him while playfully apologizing about her deceptive kick. At the beginning of the original series' Episode 43, the Girl of the Week, Utako Yumeno, knees a man in the groin from inside a train after he had suddenly bumped into her and accidentally looked down her shirt.

comment
Dirty Cop: There's quite a few cops that works with the Yakuza. Also, Saeko: she may be a honest and competent cop, but, as pointed out by Reika in one memorable occasion, Ryo is a criminal (and she had a few troubles for helping him when another cop decided to take down City Hunter), and she also helped framing a terrorist for a murder he didn't commit.

Best Her to Bed Her: Averted. Saeko Nogami (who, to be fair, appear to be interested only in stronger men, given that Ryo and the late Makimura, her two love interests, are stronger than her), claims she vowed to marry only a man stronger than herself... But it's apparently an excuse to get away from her father's attempts at getting her in an Arranged Marriage, and "tests" the applicants until they need hospitalization.

 City Hunter (Manga) / int_efbd4c52
comment
All Bikers Are Hells Angels: Mercilessly parodied by the Blue Oysters. At first they seem to play it straight, but then we find out they have to wear mohican haircuts due their boss 'Number Two', that the boss doesn't want to be called Number Two or Torakichi but Tiger (and he's forcing everyone to use English animal names based on their real names), and that Torakichi is the son of a Yakuza boss who put the gang together in the vain attempt to impress Ryo's current charge Sayaka. Sayaka declared him even more stupid than she knew and treathened to put him in the hospital again, while Ryo felt embarrassed by having to mop the floor with them...

Identical Stranger: Inspector Hirotaka Kitao looks almost exactly like Hideyuki, to the point that Kaori herself mistook him for his ghost. Interestingly, Ryo states that they look completely different, implying that either there is some physical difference Kaori and Saeko can't see or he could notice the difference in their character with a single look (or he actually forgot Hideyuki's face as he claimed).

 City Hunter (Manga) / int_fb3576b2
comment
The Dog Bites Back: A light-hearted version: Ryo mocks Umibozu at every chance he gets (the nickname Umibozu itself is part of it, as it means 'sea monster' and replaced both Umi's real name and previous codename Falcon), so when an hypnotist made Ryo believe he had a bigger penis he took the chance to mock him back, even running to Ryo's home to laugh in his face when rumors started saying that the loss in the penis contest had made him impotent. At the end of the story arc, the hypnotist was made impotent permanently.

Canon Immigrant / Expy: Mick Angel is based on the anime-only character Robert Harrison, an old partner of Ryo from the US who arrived in Japan to kill Ryo's current client. They have different names and clothes, and Mick favors the Walther P-38 over Mick's Desert Eagle, but for the rest they're practically the same. Even the way they say 'hi' is pretty much the same, even if Hojo cranked it Up to Eleven.

Dark and Troubled Past: Ryo, big time. Orphaned at such a young age he doesn't even know his actual birthday? Check. Becoming a Child Soldier to survive being orphaned? Check. Being the initial test subject of the Angel Dust, and the only man who has ever recovered from its withdrawal symptoms? Ouch!

comment
Shown Their Work: The author took care to learn gun safety rules and which gun is appropriated for who. While garden-variety criminals and yakuzas tend to carry whatever gun looks cooler and do some amateurish mistakes, professional gun users will not do stupid mistakes, and will carry the appropriate gun, ranging from the New Nambu M60 and Smith & Wesson Model 36 service revolvers carried by the police (including Saeko) to the Remington Model 700 used by both Ryo, the police and an enemy sweeper for sniping. Angel Dust blocks pain receptors, causes a permanent adrenaline rush and makes the victim extremely suggestible, and in one case caused him to go into a rage, and the withdrawal tends to kill (apparently only Ryo survived). The drug PCP, also known as Angel Dust, has similar effects (even if on a lesser scale), and the withdrawal can cause seizures.
