Advertisement:propertag.cmd.push(function() { proper_display('tvtropes_mobile_ad_1'); })Inuyasha is an enormously popular anime based upon the similarly popular manga of the same name by Rumiko Takahashi. The manga was serialized from 1996 to 2008 in Shonen Sunday, while the anime ran for seven seasons (167 episodes) on Japanese television from 2000 to 2004. [adult swim] aired the final episode of a very decent English-language dub in October 2006 and continued to air it in the very early Sunday morning slot almost continuously (the only other show to have run longer on [as] is Cowboy Bebop) until 2014. In Canada, the dub aired on YTV where it was one of the channel's most popular anime shows. Inuyasha and several other supporting characters from the show appear in the Massive Multiplayer Crossover game Sunday VS Magazine: Shuuketsu! Choujou Daikessen.Japanese Ordinary Middle School Student Kagome Higurashi, granddaughter of a Shinto priest, has the ability to climb down into an ancient well on the grounds of her grandfather's shrine and, in doing so, Time Travel to allegedly-feudal-Japan; this sounds cool until you learn that Youkai, goblins, vengeful ghosts, malevolent wizard-priests, short-tempered twelve-foot-tall ogres, and all manner of other creepy-crawlies are everywhere and you can barely swing your arms without hitting one of them. Significantly, this is one of the few Japanese fantasy anime that isn't set in a pseudo-medieval-European fantasy world; just about everything in it is based on Japanese myths and legends. Another noteworthy difference from most anime is that almost all of the characters who are supposed to be Japanese humans are actually depicted with black hair, instead of other Hair Colors.Advertisement:propertag.cmd.push(function() { proper_display('tvtropes_mobile_ad_2'); })On her first trip through the well, Kagome meets Inuyasha, an obnoxious, abrasive, arrogant half-youkai teenage boy with long flowing white hair and super-cute doggy ears on top of his head. (His father, a dog youkai of some kind, had a taste for human women.) Inuyasha, needless to say, actually has a heart of gold, though he requires Kagome's insistence to do good deeds. You all knew that was coming, didn't you? Right? Right.Kagome happens to be the reincarnation of the miko that Inuyasha once loved fifty years in his past, who just happened to be the one who fired a sacred arrow which sealed him to a sacred tree and essentially killed him. Kagome's arrival in the past is pivotal in that she is the one who releases Inuyasha from this "death" by pulling the arrow from his chest; her connection with his past love allows her to perform this otherwise impossible feat.Advertisement:propertag.cmd.push(function() { proper_display('tvtropes_mobile_ad_3'); })The small-scale structure of the story is episodic, with many a Monster of the Week (usually literally a monster). However, in addition to the romance angle between Inuyasha and Kagome, there is an overarching plot about the pair and their adventuring companions — Shippo, an orphaned, mischievous and immature kitsune; Miroku, a cunning Buddhist monk with wandering hands and a ticking time bomb in his right hand in particular; Sango, the latest (plus unfortunately and very recently the last) of a renowned clan of demon slayers, whose signature weapon is a gigantic boomerang made of demon bones; and Kirara, Sango's nekomata companion, who can change from an adorable two tailed kitten to an enormous flying sabretooth at the drop of a hat — wandering pseudo-medieval-Japan in order to collect the pieces of the shattered Shikon no Tama/Jewel of Four Souls. This quest eventually turns into a struggle against the Big Bad — the evil incarnate that is Naraku, a human-turned-youkai that seeks the Shikon Jewel in order to taint it and become a full-fledged youkai with powers far beyond anything any youkai has ever known, and whose plotting turns out to be behind just about all of the miseries that have befallen every main character.And, just to throw some family drama into the mix, on occasion the heroes also have to deal with Inuyasha's elder half-brother Sesshomaru: a full blooded youkai who already looks down on his younger brother for his human blood, and outright despises him when it turns out their long dead father left one of his cool swords, Tessaiga, to his hanyō son rather than his 'rightful heir'. Sesshomaru instead inherited the blade known as Tenseiga, which he regards as a gross insult since the sword can't even hurt a living creature, instead being able to restore the dead to life. While at first he's determined to take Tessaiga for himself and kill Inuyasha should he get in his way, Sesshomaru later seeks a weapon to prove he is equal to, or even greater than, his father...and eventually, as the brothers repeatedly clash with each other, battle the enemies their father left in his wake and amass both power and crucial character development from the hard lessons he prepared for them, Sesshomaru and his entourage also get drawn into the end goal of taking down Naraku.Over the course of the series, Inuyasha and company confront Naraku several times, but each time he gets away, gaining more shards of the Jewel — and an extra power or two — in the process. Forcing Inuyasha to gain a new power as well just to ward off Naruku's attacks. Rise, rinse, and repeat till its conclusion.The original manga eventually reaches a resolution, but it takes its sweet time to do so (fifty-six books when the main plot would really need only, say, twenty), and the first anime was Cut Short with no proper ending due in large part to actually catching up with the production of the manga and running out of episodal stories to do. The 26-episode anime series Inuyasha: The Final Act picks up where the original anime left off and covers the remaining chapters of the manga through to the story's conclusion.You can find dubbed and subtitled versions of both InuYasha and The Final Act on Hulu and the first two seasons of the original series on Netflix. The show (in dubbed form) aired from 2002-2014 (over a decade!) on [adult swim] (and, later, the revived Toonami block, which aired The Final Act from 2014-2015), becoming one of the first big hits for the block, and the series is now considered a classic gateway anime series for many in the US. In 2020, the first 54 episodes and four movies became available on Funimation.In May 2020 it was announced the series would be getting an anime sequel titled Yashahime: Princess Half-Demon with the main characters being half-demon twins Towa and Setsuna, the daughters of Sesshomaru, alongside Moroha, the daughter of Inuyasha and Kagome.For spinoff series and video games, see Inuyasha.

The Call Knows Where You Live: After returning to her time after her first trip to the feudal era, Kagome assumes the whole experience was a dream and proceeds to forget about the whole thing....until Inuyasha barges into her house while her family is having dinner. It doesn't help that one of the bad guys (Yura of the Hair) seeking the Shikon Jewel tries to enter Kagome's time moments later.

"Are these... real?" [tweak tweak] Also note her little brother Sota squealing, "Me next! Me next!" Jakotsu prefers human Inuyasha, but he does want to keep his dog ears as a trophy. Miroku and Sango's twin daughters◊ love them too.

Brainwashed and Crazy: Kohaku. After being revived, Naraku erased his memories to be able to control his mind. He then ordered Kohaku to kill a lot of innocent people, including his own sister. The majority of the main cast, including Inuyasha, Sango, and Kagome, are put under some kind of mind control effect and used against their companions at some point in the series or movies.

Take Off Your Clothes: When he sees Kagome dressed as a miko, Inuyasha soon asks her to take off the outfit. To which Kagome respond with a rock to the head and calling him a pervert. But Inuyasha doesn't want to see her naked (yet); it's just that with the priestess garb, she looks too much like Kikyo and that makes him uncomfortable.

Only Six Faces
 Inuyasha (Manga) / int_18a84025
comment
Only Six Faces: There are in fact Only Four Faces - Young Woman, Young Man, Old Woman, and Old Man. The difference between the first two and last is also debatable. Kikyo and Kagome are the only two characters that have any business looking alike, but they look like just about every other young woman, and even some of the men. Ironically, Kikyo and Kagome are two of the more distinct comparisons, given the differences in hairstyle, skin tone, and default facial expressions in the anime. The manga has a few exceptions... all of whom are used for gags (i.e. the servant boy who was acting as a replacement sacrifice, Youreitaisei, etc.).

comment
Sibling Rivalry: It's a ding-dong battle with Inuyasha and his older brother Sesshomaru who has daddy issues. It eventually gets resolved but not before it descends into a temporary period of Cain and Abel. Lampshaded in the manga itself when Inuyasha complains about two fighting brothers causing trouble for everyone and realises his True Companions are thinking he's talking about himself and Sesshomaru. When he claims it's all Sesshomaru's fault, Miroku observes that's exactly what a troublemaker would say.

Feel No Pain: Yakurou Dokusen offers a "medicine" to Miroku so he'll stop feeling pain everytime he sucks poison into his curse but it won't cure the shouki wounds that are killing him. He takes it. Shikon shards in the body will make it insensitive to pain no matter how severe the injuries are, which is how, for example, Sango manages to go toe-to-toe with Inuyasha in her first appearance despite being grievously injured.

comment
The Movie: Four times. They're generally non-serial, but occasionally nods to them are thrown into the anime, like Sesshomaru's Soryuha technique, which was made up for a movie. The fandom periodically circulates rumours of a fifth but that generally refers to either the ending of an old computer game or a more recent OVA that was released as part of the Rumic World Specials and can be found, with minor editing, as episode 15 of the The Final Act. For the movies' tropes go to their respective pages: Affections Touching Across Time The Castle Beyond the Looking Glass Swords of an Honorable Ruler Fire on the Mystic Island

The Stoic: Inuyasha at times because he's a brood machine. Although Sesshomaru's stoicism is somewhat exaggerated by the fanbase, he's still one of the most stoic of any manga or anime characters and is certainly the most stoic of this manga's cast. He is not unemotional, however, and there are plenty of occasions where he proves that he's actually Not So Stoic after all.

Actually a Doombot: Naraku has the ability to make "puppets" of himself powered by a strand of his hair wrapped around a wooden figure. He eventually tapers off of using them, but in the earliest stages of the series, basically any time someone fights Naraku there are high odds it will turn out to be one of these.

Cruel and Unusual Death
 Inuyasha (Manga) / int_1e584efa
comment
Honouring a promise to Inuyasha, Sesshomaru sacrifices his claim to both swords by deliberately shattering Tenseiga's blade against Tessaiga to pass on Meidou Zangetsuha. The broken Tenseiga responds to this by guiding the pair out of the danger they're in and promptly reforges itself. Sesshomaru can't get rid of this blade even when he tries.

Power at a Price
 Inuyasha (Manga) / int_1ebbdddb
comment
Power at a Price: Sesshomaru's quest for power results in the loss of his arm and, later, the death of Rin (again). He achieves his true potential only thanks to this and the death of Kagura; the latter moves him to feel compassion for others and the former forces him to understand the irreplaceable value of life and the role that fear and sorrow must play in a warrior's life.

Ambiguous Situation: In the ending, it's left ambiguous as to whether or not Kagome can use the well to travel through time anymore after she returns to the Feudal Era for good, but it's implied by her tearful farewell to her mother and Sota's conversation with his friends that she can't. In any case it is very unlikely that she would even want to try in case she gets stuck in the modern era again.

With Great Power Comes Great Insanity: When Inuyasha transforms into a full demon he gets incredible strength and resistance, but it's too much power for his half-human body to handle and he'll start to lose his sanity with each transformation until he'll end up being a mindless killing machine that will keep fighting until he destroys everyone around him or gets himself killed.

Adaptation Expansion
 Inuyasha (Manga) / int_23473ae7
comment
Adaptation Expansion: The manga gives very little information on Inuyasha and Kikyo's backstory other than briefly implying that they had fallen in love once. Some of Kikyo's comments also suggests that she hadn't been able to soften Inuyasha's heart and they had never kissed (until she did so in present-time). The anime episode "The Tragic Love Song of Destiny" expands greatly on their story to show how the falling in love happened with Inuyasha becoming kinder around her and culminating in them sharing a kiss, the opposite of what the manga suggested. The original season of the anime added some comedic episodes that were not in the manga.

Fire-Forged Friends: The main group was formed because all the members (except Shippo) share a common goal, and at first they were hostile to each other. Inuyasha and Kagome are forced to work together to find the Shikon shards, they let Miroku join after learning they share a common enemy and Sango joins for the same reason. They warm up to each other and end up being best friends since they don't really have anyone else.

Barefoot Poverty: The story is primarily set during the Warring States era, where almost everyone save for lords went barefoot at all times. A couple of characters like Kagura, Rin and Inuyasha himself do cross into Does Not Like Shoes territory however, but this too was largely the result of the times and simply being used to them. The entire setting was really the perfect barrel for Takahashi to indulge in some of her preferences.

Birds of a Feather: Inuyasha and Kagome, despite significant difference in personality: Both can get a little hot under the collar, especially with each other. They have a mutual dislike from running from fights. They can get easily jealous, can be stubborn and absolutely terrible at controlling or expressing their emotions. They also can't stand if anyone outside their group intends to do the other harm, physically or emotionally.

Spiritual Successor: Kamisama Kiss has a lot in common with this series. Both plots revolve around an ordinary teenage girl being given control over a supernatural Jerkass with a temper on a short fuse, who is subsequently forced to help and protect her. Tomoe, the male lead, looks almost exactly like an older and mature version of Inuyasha and their respective personalities are very similar to boot. Nanami, the female lead, also has most of Kagome's personality traits.

Another very noticeable example is the entire Band of Seven, whose names all end with "-kotsu" (meaning "bone"), indicating their undead natures. The prefixes of their names are individually meaningful as well; for instance, the "ja-" in Jakotsu's name means "snake," a reference to his serpent-like Whip Sword (accordingly named "Jakotsu-to," "snake bone sword").

Zigzag Paper Tassel: The goshinboku tree in the present, assimilated into the grounds of the Higurashi shrine, has a shimenawa around it. (Not so in the past, due to being farther from the village and generally avoided by the villagers.) One chapter features some monkeys who trick Inuyasha into touching a small stone with a shimenawa around it, which sticks to his hand and becomes a huge boulder. More generally, shimenawa are occasionally seen being used by monks or miko to set up a magical barrier or seal, such as the seal on the cave where Entei was trapped.

Blade Brake: Inuyasha rams Tessaiga into the ground to prevent being sucked into the Wind Tunnel. In one of many amusing examples of just how alike the two brothers really are, when Sesshomaru first experiences the power of the Wind Tunnel, he reacts in exactly the same way (and since he's holding Tessaiga at the time, he even uses the same sword). Also performed by Kohaku to prevent himself from falling to his death down a chasm. Also by Kagome with Tessaiga inside Naraku's body.

Please Kill Me If It Satisfies You: Sango offered her life to Sesshomaru after she tried to kill Rin to save Miroku but Sesshomaru just seemed to forgive her.

Death Is Cheap: Ask Kikyo... or Kohaku... or Rin. The series does try not to take it too far: before he could master Tenseiga's Meidou Zangetsuha, Sesshomaru had to learn that even Tenseiga's ability to revive the dead has its limits, since he couldn't properly appreciate the value of the lives of others as long as he assumed he could simply bring them back. However, the lesson is rather undermined when Sesshomaru's mother revives Rin a second time anyway.

Artifact of Doom
 Inuyasha (Manga) / int_3b5fcbb7
comment
Artifact of Doom: There are... a lot of this in this show. Yura of the Hair is actually a spirit born from a comb used to comb the hair of dead people. Destroying the comb destroys Yura. The cursed Noh Mask. It is a deadly artifact that once placed on the face, it absorbs/consumes the wearer. Later, Sesshomaru commissions the making of the deadly sword Tokijin, crafted from the teeth of Naraku's detachment Goshinki. It possesses its own maker, but when Sesshomaru takes it for himself, he shrugs off the sword's attempt to possess him through sheer willpower. Kanna has her Mirror, which can steal the very soul of those she shows it to or, in some cases, absorb the power and devastating effect of a weapon and allow her to direct it back at the sender. The Naginata of Kenkon, aka the Naginata of Heaven and Earth, was fashioned from the corpses of 222 demons by the same demonic smith who made Tokijin. Dakki, the youki-absorbing sword that transformed its human smith into a pseudo-youkai in order to try and absorb Tessaiga's youki and then transferred the full force of Inuyasha's attack to said smith's body in a desperate attempt to save itself. The Shikon Jewel, the real Big Bad of the story.

Blessed with Suck
 Inuyasha (Manga) / int_3c3f28a5
comment
Blessed with Suck / Cursed With Awesome: Miroku. The Wind Tunnel in his right hand, a curse placed on his grandfather and passed down onto him, is basically a one-way dimensional gateway with the force of a minute black hole. Even the most powerful of demons seem to be unable to escape it if drawn inside — witness the spirit of Kaguya, an entity stated to be truly immortal, being banished forever by being drawn inside the Wind Tunnel. However, Miroku can only control it by wrapping his hand in certain special beads, and as Naraku created it, he has also created a counter for it: a rapidly-breeding wasp-like creature called Saimyosho contain a poison that will cause Miroku intense pain and eventually death if he draws them in. Oh, and the Wind Tunnel, even if not used, is slowly growing ever larger, until the day when it consumes Miroku and everything around him in a fair-sized Sphere of Destruction, just as it has already devoured his father and grandfather. Inuyasha's youkai form. Insanely high levels of strength and speed, a much improved healing factor, enough youki to make even Sesshomaru feel one, brief moment of fear and have a youketsu capable of holding the evil spirit of the Shikon Jewel immobile against its will and decay a frggin' portal to hell when its sliced by the Dragon-Scale Tessaiga. Of course, there's the little matter of him being a bloodthirsty monster that has barely any of Inuyasha's restraint, and each time it gets even less controllable and less intelligent. Of course, he does get to occasionally take advantage of it and Tessaiga at the same time, whenever someone starts stealing some of Tessaiga's forms, or he boosts Tessaiga with purified Shikon shards.

Everyone kills demons without batting an eye, but they always try not to kill humans no matter how evil or despicable they are. Case in point: in Episode 51, Inuyasha succumbs to his Superpowered Evil Side and personally hunts down and slaughters Gatenmaru's henchmen; despite the fact that they were knowingly serving a demon and that they had personally fed innocent villagers to their demon boss For the Evulz while making him watch, he undergoes a complete My God, What Have I Done? moment as soon as he snaps out of it.

I Die Free: Kagura's only desire is to be free but doesn't want to die to get it so she does everything in her power to get Naraku killed without him knowing. When she chooses Kohaku's life before her own and gets impaled by Naraku for her troubles, she realizes that dying was the only way to be free. (Further confirmed by Byakuya who mentions that the detachments would die anyway when Naraku is killed).

The end of the "Fateful Night in Togenkyo" story ends with Kagome, Miroku, and Shippo standing at the edge of a cliff and mourning for Inuyasha, who apparently fell to his death. When Inuyasha, coming up behind them, takes exception to Kagome calling him an idiot for dying, it takes the rest of the cast an extra line or two of dialogue before they catch on.

Secret Test of Character

comment
Secret Test of Character: Occurs so often to be a running gag. Furthermore, the test is almost always to see whether you give a dang about your companions, and the hero will pass it halfway through a pitched battle: At least half the time when Inuyasha gains a new ability. Whenever Kikyo gets within eyeshot of Kagome. Sango and Miroku when the former was getting Hiraikotsu repaired. Koga when getting his claw weapon. Sesshomaru's entire journey through the story turns out to have been this, a test he finally passes when he obtains Bakusaiga.

First-Name Basis: Inuyasha starts to call Kagome by name after defeating Yura. Miroku jumps directly to first name basis with no honorifics with Sango, the only woman he addresses in such a fashion. Averted by Sango, who never uses Miroku's name at all, always calling him "Houshi-sama" even after she's promised to marry him. (This and Miroku's use of yobisute mentioned above are distinctions not carried over into the English dub due to the difficulty of translating them effectively.)

Would Hurt a Child: Naraku has no compunctions about doing any horrible thing to anyone, children included. Various other youkai such as Goshinki share his willingness to harm kids; even Koga has no issue with letting his wolves kill Rin during his first appearance (although his personality is considerably softened thereafter). Kagura may be a notable exception, given that she fails to do anything more serious than kidnapping Rin, and becomes quite protective of Kohaku. Thanks to a multiple personality disorder, Suikotsu flipped between being a gentle doctor who wouldn't hurt a fly to a homicidal maniac that was willing to include children in his body count.

Characterization Marches On
 Inuyasha (Manga) / int_479f9ad0
comment
Characterization Marches On: This is what happened to the smiling, talkative Sesshomaru. Lampshaded briefly in the manga, however. In the early days, his smiles were usually only sadistic. Later on in the manga, once Sesshomaru's unsmiling, taciturn personality is established, Jaken does briefly observe that Sesshomaru only smiles when he's in a killing mood. Jaken also got this. His first appearance has him roast a pack of demons and be a generally competent advisor. A few appearances later, he's firmly settled into the Bumbling Sidekick Butt-Monkey role. This is the only explanation for Koga. He starts out as a straight up villain, setting his wolves on Rin's village and killing her, kidnapping Kagome and threatening to kill Shippou. After a brief arc, he mellows out into an Anti-Hero rival to the main character and no mention of this previous deeds is ever made.

Not Now, We're Too Busy Crying over You
 Inuyasha (Manga) / int_4a0f49cf
comment
Not Now, We're Too Busy Crying over You: The end of the "Fateful Night in Togenkyo" story ends with Kagome, Miroku, and Shippo standing at the edge of a cliff and mourning for Inuyasha, who apparently fell to his death. When Inuyasha, coming up behind them, takes exception to Kagome calling him an idiot for dying, it takes the rest of the cast an extra line or two of dialogue before they catch on. This happens a few times in the show. The first time is when Shippo first appears. Inuyasha is crying over Kagome who thanks to the foxfire protecting her, looks like a dead spirit (and Myoga the flea is so certain of this that he manages to convince Inuyasha).

Comedic Sociopathy: Where to begin? Kagome's abuse of Inuyasha, Sango's abuse of Miroku, Inuyasha's abuse of Shippo, Inuyasha and Miroku's abuse of each other, and Sesshomaru's abuse of Jaken are the more regular instances.

Loyal Phlebotinum: Several weapons. Tessaiga initially appears to be this, then it seems to be averted when it's revealed Sesshomaru can use it as well, it's only the youkai-repelling barrier that stops him. Finally, it's confirmed during a Die or Fly test of worth when Sesshomaru deliberately steals Tessaiga's power to test its bond with Inuyasha only to find the power immediately flees back to Inuyasha at the first chance it gets. Toukijin is so powerful and evil not even Totosai can approach it. Sesshomaru overcomes the blade's evil will easily and the sword obeys him loyally until the day it's destroyed. Tenseiga is extremely loyal to Sesshomaru even though he doesn't want it at all. Even when he deliberately shatters the blade and discards it, the sword ends up reforging itself and landing back on the ground near Sesshomaru. The only reason Tenseiga is not a Clingy MacGuffin is because it can be physically separated from Sesshomaru. It just won't stay separated.

Situational Sword
 Inuyasha (Manga) / int_4daeb0b9
comment
Situational Sword: Tenseiga has the power to protect Sesshomaru from death - but it only kicks in if Sesshomaru sustains an injury that might potentially kill him without that protection. More specifically, Tenseiga's protection will always work on reflex when it senses that Sesshomaru is about to take a mortal blow from Tessaiga, this was naturally something his father had placed as a failsafe just in case the latter blade is turned on Sesshomaru (ensuring his two children can't maim each other using their heirlooms at the very least); or under extreme conditions it can trigger a barrier on its own (these activations are most definitely situational). It's also incapable of killing the living, but turns out to be capable of killing spirits, though later, it's shown to have one of the most power offensive abilities in the series - this was eventually meant to be passed on to Tessaiga and Inuyasha after Sesshomaru mastered the skill. After Sesshomaru passes the move on, Tenseiga is back to being a pure Healing Shiv.

The Final Act anime also includes a lampshade hanging subversion. In her first battle after having the Hiraikotsu restored, Sango launches it at Naraku, who goes into a whole speech about how useless her weapon is on him...Only to be cut off mid-sentence by his upper-torso being turned into figgy pudding by the new aura-shattering powers of the Hiraikotsu.

Crazy-Prepared: Sango habitually carries a backup weapon, a hidden backup backup weapon, and a considerable assortment of poisons designed for use against demons. She rarely has to use more than Hiraikotsu and maybe her short sword, but when Miroku has to subdue her while she's under the control of a demon salamander, he gains a new and firsthand appreciation for just how scary an opponent she can be.

Motive Decay: Naraku. He himself admits once he has the complete jewel, he's not sure what to do with it, largely because all the things he wanted it for, he either already has now or doesn't need or want them anymore. He decides to just use the jewel's power to kill Inuyasha, and since he's spent so long fighting Inuyasha, he admits outright he's not sure what he's gonna do after that. It says something of how long the series runs that the Big Bad loses track of exactly why he's the Big Bad. Kagome confronting Naraku near the end and making the unusually astute guess that the Shikon Jewel did not grant Naraku's wish is really one of the best moments of the series. Naraku states more explicitly at the moment of his death, that his wish was to have Kikyo's heart, and the possibility of being with her in the afterlife, which the Shikon Jewel could not give him. Failing this, he instead planned to replace Midoriko and the youkai with himself and Kagome, by wishing to become part of the Shikon Jewel and by using the stolen Meidou to trap Kagome with the Shikon Jewel. (This of course was really the wish of the Shikon Jewel itself.) The (uncertain) implication is that Kagome could not be trapped in the Shikon Jewel unless she made a wish on it, and any wish would do except for the wish for the Shikon Jewel to be destroyed.

Affably Evil/Faux Affably Evil: Several villains fit one or the other. Even while fighting and talking about killing people, Yura is playful and flirty. Naraku himself acts refined and regal even while talking about how he killed or is about to kill someone. After his upgrade at Mount Hakurei, he drops it completely in favor of being a Smug Super. Bankotsu is laidback, illiterate and treasures loyalty, he also finds killing to be his calling. Jakotsu is a murdering psychopath, but he's also incredibly bubbly about his "crushes", is loyal to Bankotsu and is genuinely one of his few friends.

Adaptation-Induced Plot Hole
 Inuyasha (Manga) / int_5663a595
comment
Adaptation-Induced Plot Hole: The anime makes the assertion that Kagome needs jewel shards in order to use the well, whereas the manga says no such thing. Later in the series when Kagome loses all her jewel shards and can still use the well, at first the anime tries to cover for itself by claiming Sango had a secret stash that Kagome could borrow, but later just quietly forgets about the whole thing and lets her use the well without any. Shippo grabbing Tessaiga in a filler episode, you know, the sword that has an anti-youkai barrier that's pretty important to the plot, possibly justified if the barrier doesn't affect truly benevolent youkai. The story is about the Shikon Jewel trying to renew its cycle, having the souls of a powerful miko and a composite of several youkai and a human, and needing similar souls, like Kikyo/Kagome and Naraku. All of this information is either left out or outright changed in the anime during the Jewel explanation.

Almighty Mom: Sesshomaru's mother is a plot device designed to help Sesshomaru's Character Development by achieving something almost no one else in the manga managed to do - putting him in his place in the most brutal manner possible.

Really 700 Years Old
 Inuyasha (Manga) / int_5c5ac0e2
comment
Really 700 Years Old: Any given youkai is potentially much older than they appear, and this can possibly extend to their half-breed offspring as well. Some specific cases: Sesshomaru confirms that Bokusenou is a two-thousand year old youkai magnolia tree. Kirara, being a nekomata, falls under this as well; the anime even implies that she was Midoriko's companion, although she's much younger in the manga. Inuyasha himself is a cipher - the third movie establishes him as about 200 years old, not counting his fifty-year-stasis, but the movies are not considered canon to the series - but even if he was just a teenager when Kikyo put him on ice, Sesshomaru's appearance has not changed even slightly during the fifty years that Inuyasha was sealed. (And the same movie that gives Inuyasha's age as 200 shows Sesshomaru looking only very slightly younger when Inuyasha was born, two hundred fifty years before the action of the series.) By extension, we may assume that Inu no Taisho and Sesshomaru's mother age at a similar rate.

Awesome Mc Coolname: Sesshomaru's name is written with kanji meaning "kill," "life" or "genuine," and "perfection," a combination which could be interpreted to mean something to the effect of "perfect killer" or "complete destruction of life." A number of the attack names also qualify, first among them Meidou Zangetsuha, which means "dark path of the dawn's moon blast".

Free Sample Plot Coupon: Downplayed. Kagome already has the Shikon jewel inside her at the start of the series, but after some unsavory events it is fragmented into several pieces, scattered through Feudal Japan. Thus the objective is to retrieve them, and the first of them is held by a very powerful opponent, negating the trope entirely.

An anime Villain of the Week reveals to Inuyasha and friends that other Shikon Jewels can be made if you can find four souls that strongly embody each of these four characteristics and seal them into a single gem with a Miko as the center. In fact, he attempts to defeat the group because Kagome (the Miko), Inuyasha (Courage), Shippo (Friendship), Miroku (Wisdom) and Sango (Love) are pefect candidates for this process.

Badass Normal: Sango. She's completely human and the only protagonist who doesn't have any kind of supernatural or magical power, but she's able to throw around the huge boomerang as if it were a toy, and is just about as good of a fighter as Inuyasha himself. And of course, Kohaku. His Shikon shard doesn't seem to do anything but keep him alive and under Naraku's control, but by the end of the series he's able to easily slaughter groups of trained guards and youkai like they were nothing. The Band of Seven while they did have Jewel shards when they fought against Inuyasha and company, they were just normal humans before they got resurrected and capable of easily taking out not only powerful demons but also entire armies by themselves.

Nipple and Dimed: May come as a surprise to those more familiar with the anime, but the original manga isn't afraid to show partial female nudity on occasion (e.g. Kagome is shown topless when she undergoes a cleansing rite early in volume one). Even makes for Fan Disservice once when a short-term villain comes in with a female demon done up like an Indian dancing girl, then punches her head off to punctuate a point to another character.

Undressing the Unconscious: In "Fateful Night in Togenkyo Part II", Kagome is captured by Tokajin who undresses her and puts her in a big cooking pot bath to clean her, since he plans to feed her to a man-eating tree (or in the original manga, he just planned to eat her himself). When she wakes up, she has little time to consider her situation before Inuyasha barges in and sees her naked, and she has a Naked Freak-Out due to that instead. He later gives her his fire-rat-hair kimono for her to wear, which she does for the rest of the episode.

The Unfair Sex: Kagome gets extremely jealous when Inuyasha has any kind of interaction with Kikyo, even if said interaction is nothing more than discussing about how to kill Naraku, and everyone showers her with sympathy. Inuyasha, on the other hand, gets jealous of Koga for flirting with Kagome, only to have everyone berate him for it. The difference is not entirely without basis - Inuyasha is genuinely torn between his feelings for Kikyo and Kagome, while Kagome has no romantic interest in Koga whatsoever - but it nevertheless comes across as an unfair Double Standard to many fans.

Revive Kills Zombie: More like "Killing 'Zombies' Revives". Tenseiga has the ability to cut the undead and the spirits from the underworld. By slaying the spirits that come to collect the soul of a dead person it revives said person. This is played straight by being one of the only contexts where Tenseiga is actually effective as a weapon. As a sword of healing and life, it's lethal when used to fight un-dead beings and demons and spirits originating from the underworld. Which is especially important since such creatures are usually able to No-Sell or otherwise regenerate from anything else due to already being "Dead."

Meaningful Name
 Inuyasha (Manga) / int_6bda9a30
comment
Meaningful Name: The series is rife with them. Inuyasha himself, whose name means Dog-Yaksa. A yaksa is a spirit who in Buddhism serves a benevolent god that protects the righteous. Because Tessaiga is meant to be used for the protection of humans, Inuyasha's name suits him very well. Naraku means "abyss", Tessaiga literally translates into "Iron Crushing Fang", Sesshomaru translates into something like "perfect killing circle" (Yikes) and Miroku is the Japanese name for the future Buddha. Another very noticeable example is the entire Band of Seven, whose names all end with "-kotsu" (meaning "bone"), indicating their undead natures. The prefixes of their names are individually meaningful as well; for instance, the "ja-" in Jakotsu's name means "snake," a reference to his serpent-like Whip Sword (accordingly named "Jakotsu-to," "snake bone sword").

Alleged Lookalikes: Everyone initially compares Kagome to Kikyo. They may technically have the "same" face (as it turns out they have the same soul), but when the series suffers from Only Six Faces and Kikyo and Kagome purposefully differ in hair style, habitual facial expressions, skin tone, and age, they don't look alike at all - at least, not any more alike than any other two random characters you could pick out. The anime has it worse, so that it's almost an Adaptation-Induced Plot Hole there. The manga did have Kagome start off with blunter bangs [1] making it easier to see why she was compared to Kikyo

Viewers Are Goldfish: The recaps can get pretty ridiculous; in particular, it sometimes feels like you can't go three episodes without rewatching the scene in which Kikyo kills Inuyasha. The Japanese version also reminds you who every single character outside of the main group is, every episode, by showing their name over the entire lower half of the screen. Even the main group wasn't immune to this, with their names being verbally announced along with onscreen captions during the opening credits.

Noble Demon: Inu-no-Taisho was probably one. Sesshomaru's mother might also be one, but her single appearance leaves it difficult to tell: although she participates in Inu-no-Taisho's plan to teach Sesshomaru compassion, interpretations vary as to whether or not she demonstrates a Lack of Empathy. Character Development eventually lands Sesshomaru in this category; other examples include Totosai, Housenki, and the fathers of Jinenji and Shiori. As a rule, if you have a half-demon child, you are probably a Noble Demon.

Once More, with Clarity!: In the first chapter, Kikyo's last words to Inuyasha after pinning him to a tree are "The Jewel of Four Souls... For such a thing..." and the anime makes it clear that at this point his consciousness faded. When she's revived, the scene is revisited, and we hear the whole thing in full: "The Jewel of Four Souls... For such a thing... you betrayed me..."

Embarrassing Cover Up: The excuses for why Kagome is missing so much school are usually provided by her grandfather and consist of a cavalcade of increasingly implausible health ailments, many of them more common to the elderly than to a teenage girl. Kagome inevitably finds it very embarrassing when she goes back to school and is questioned by her friends about her latest illness.

Tenseiga is extremely loyal to Sesshomaru even though he doesn't want it at all. Even when he deliberately shatters the blade and discards it, the sword ends up reforging itself and landing back on the ground near Sesshomaru. The only reason Tenseiga is not a Clingy MacGuffin is because it can be physically separated from Sesshomaru. It just won't stay separated.

Land Poor
 Inuyasha (Manga) / int_7b35cd92
comment
Land Poor: The Higurashi family are a straight example of the Japanese version. They own a house with several outbuildings, a shrine and a huge tree in the back yard in downtown Tokyo, while being comfortably lower-middle class. Justification abounds, though. The Higurashi family has tended the shrine since Tokyo was a tiny fishing village (in fact, it's implied that the village grew up around the shrine). The house was built so the shrine caretaker wouldn't have to live in the shrine, which would be disrespectful. The outbuildings are mostly sheds and stores for tools and supplies needed to keep the shrine and grounds clean and pretty. The shrine's age and beauty make it both a popular tourist attraction and a popular site for weddings. Meaning that between the rents from bridal parties and the gift shop, the family does have a decent income, but most of it is plowed back into upkeep and repairs.

Sesshomaru's darkest hour occurs when he finally learns the truth about Tenseiga's origins and the real reason why he was given Meidou Zangetsuha, resulting in him believing that his father wanted Inuyasha to kill him to get the perfected technique back to Tessaiga. His Heroic BSoD is so overwhelming that even Myoga is desperate to help him.

Hybrid Power
 Inuyasha (Manga) / int_7e8a9164
comment
Hybrid Power: Inuyasha has a lot of demonic power from his father, but his human side has certain advantages of its own. Due to his incredibly powerful father he has more power than many demons, and his human side grants him use of the sword forged from his father's fang, which lets him take out any demons his own powers can't take. Addtionally, Inuyasha cannot be purified into oblivion which becomes useful when up against a monk gone astray in an entirely different way from Miroku.

Animation Bump
 Inuyasha (Manga) / int_7ea2a915
comment
Animation Bump: The anime series itself often goes from good to poor in sequential order, with a superbly animated episode followed by a greatly inferior one. For example, the finale of the Bankotsu fight has smoother animation than most of the series. The Final Act continues the trend of fluctuating quality, but is overall better than the earlier series. A shorter series with a generous budget means the show basically got the same quality as the earlier movies. 2D Visuals, 3D Effects were the main offense.

Also, one of the last powers to be introduced before the Final Battle, Bakusaiga. As soon as it's introduced, characters begin observing that Naraku doesn't stand a chance against it. As a result, the plot almost immediately ensures that it can't be used even for most of the final battle. At the end, when it's finally unleashed, it's unstoppable. It still doesn't even scratch the Shikon Jewel though due to the fact the Shikon Jewel is a soul-based creation that cannot be defeated by any sword.

The Fair Folk: The demons tend to be otherworldly and ruthless. Some are very ugly, others very beautiful. It's stated that the most powerful and dangerous ones are those that look like humans. This actually plays into Japanese culture; the beings referred to in Japan as Youkai and Obake would probably be considered more Fey than Demons by Western standards.

Second Love: Inuyasha's first love was Kikyo, but he ultimately falls in love with and marries Kagome, Played With in that Kagome is also Kikyo's reincarnation so in a way are basically two versions of the same person. In the anime, Koga initially chases after Kagome but marries Ayame, again Played With as he had given Ayame a Childhood Marriage Promise long before he ever met Kagome.

Story-Breaker Power
 Inuyasha (Manga) / int_8712e4c9
comment
Story-Breaker Power: The Wind Tunnel, but thanks to Fuel Meter of Power and Kryptonite Is Everywhere, Miroku can't use it too much. To elaborate: Miroku has what amounts to his own personal black hole in his hand, which he can use to suck any foe into oblivion. Early on in the series, Naraku begins using some poison bees that would kill Miroku if he sucked them in. This leads to nearly every episode having a scene where Miroku tries to use his world-breaking power, only for the bees to show up out of nowhere, forcing him to back off. Also, one of the last powers to be introduced before the Final Battle, Bakusaiga. As soon as it's introduced, characters begin observing that Naraku doesn't stand a chance against it. As a result, the plot almost immediately ensures that it can't be used even for most of the final battle. At the end, when it's finally unleashed, it's unstoppable. It still doesn't even scratch the Shikon Jewel though due to the fact the Shikon Jewel is a soul-based creation that cannot be defeated by any sword.

Spell My Name with an "S": Due to confusion regarding the small "tsu" character (which emphasizes the consonant that follows it), the official manga translation printed the name of Inuyasha's sword as "Tetsusaiga" instead of "Tessaiga." The error was perpetuated in the official subtitles and English dub (albeit pronounced as "Tetsaiga"), and the fandom continues to argue over which spelling is more correct. (For comparison, Sesshomaru's name also contains the small "tsu," but is never romanized as "Setsushoumaru.")

Stalker with a Crush
 Inuyasha (Manga) / int_8b68d9a7
comment
Naraku was created when the deranged and perverse thief (and Kikyo's Stalker with a Crush) Onigumo merged with thousands of demons. And at one point in order to obtain a stronger body, he perfoms a Kodoku spell: thousands of fierce demons fight inside a cave in a mountain, and the winner absorb and merge with the losers. Eventually Naraku ends up absorbing the surviving demon in himself.

Band of Brothers
 Inuyasha (Manga) / int_8c431fe4
comment
Band of Brothers: The Inu-tachi. The group gets together mostly because of the shared battle against Naraku. While at the beginning they weren't fond of each other, their loyalty and dedication to one another grows steadily, to the point of not even thinking about putting their lives in danger to save the others. They end up forming a weird but strong family who still make snide remarks at each other all the time.

comment
Overshadowed by Awesome: Kagome, Shippo, Sango, Miroku, and Kirara all routinely fall victim to this trope whenever they go into battle teamed up with Inuyasha. Despite the fact that all of them have at least a few skills that could contribute to victory, Inuyasha usually does almost all or all of the heavy lifting in combat, and he virtually always is the one to deliver the final killing blow. Sometimes Inuyasha's companions will just stand in the background and make commentary about the fight, even though they have no valid reason not to participate.

Timey-Wimey Ball: Not a big problem, since the "fighting bad guys" matter more than the time traveling, but for example, Kagome finds a jewel shard in the present. So that means it's also back in the Sengoku period, meaning the Shikon Jewel eventually comes up to complete plus one extra shard stuck in a tree somewhere. Souls also seem to transcend time in that Kikyo can't be reborn with her soul because it's already been reincarnated in someone else — someone else from the far future who hasn't been born yet, even if she happens to have will have travelled back in time.

Asshole Victim / Kick the Son of a Bitch: Some of the angry villagers who bullied Jineji and tried to kill him and his mother are eaten alive. Similarly, the villagers who bullied and beaten Rin in Episode 35 are killed by Koga's pack of wolves. Sometimes, the episode will start by focusing on a Red Shirt Army bragging about how they're going to attack and conquer innocent lands. Guess what happens to them, courtesy of the Villain of the Week. Inuyasha's Superpowered Evil Side killed several bandits in a brutal way; said bandits were knowingly working for a demon and personally fed innocent women to their demon boss while forcing an incapacitated Inuyasha and Miroku to watch.

Art Shift: The first three movies have a different character designer from the anime, resulting in this. This is averted for the fourth movie, however. The anime suffers through a shift in the overall quality of the animation, thanks to a shift between traditional cel animation and digital animation that happens late in the original series' run.

Half the Man He Used to Be

Furthermore, the anime will edit the more graphic deaths of humans from the manga while leaving gory demon deaths intact. One example of this is Bankotsu, who is ultimately defeated when Inuyasha cuts him in half, but the anime creates a backstory for Bankotsu's BFS that gave it demonic powers when it had slain 1000 humans and 1000 demons... just so Inuyasha could send back his attack with the Bakuryuuha, something Inuyasha in the manga had realized in frustration that he couldn't do because Bankotsu was a human with no demonic aura. Bankotsu loses the same amount of his body, but the attack allows for an explosion to conceal the damage with rubble, something which can't be achieved with bifurcation.

You Have Outlived Your Usefulness: Naraku does this all the time, or at least tries, especially to his detachments: After getting heavily injured by Inuyasha and spared with the intention of freeing her from Naraku, he crushes Kanna's crystalline heart to blow her up in a last-ditch attempt to kill the protagonists. Naraku partly saw this as a Mercy Kill because of Kanna's condition by that point. Once Hakudoshi starts gloating about betraying Naraku, the latter decides he's not worth protecting and abandons him to be killed.

Van Helsing Hate Crimes
 Inuyasha (Manga) / int_9b3c14cb
comment
Van Helsing Hate Crimes: The general public's treatment of demons and half-demons often borders on this. Case in point: in Jinenji's debut episode, he is automatically accused of attacking and eating people simply because he's a half-demon, and the villagers only discover the real culprit after they form an angry mob and burn his hut to the ground. Another good example is in episode 162 with Ungai, a monk who is firmly convinced that all demons are bad to the extent that he openly declares Kagome, Miroku, and Sango, a miko, a monk, and a professional demon slayer respectively, hypocrites for even bothering to associate with Inuyasha, Shippo, and Kirara.

What Measure Is a Non-Human?
 Inuyasha (Manga) / int_9c45b5a2
comment
What Measure Is a Non-Human?: Everyone kills demons without batting an eye, but they always try not to kill humans no matter how evil or despicable they are. Case in point: in Episode 51, Inuyasha succumbs to his Superpowered Evil Side and personally hunts down and slaughters Gatenmaru's henchmen; despite the fact that they were knowingly serving a demon and that they had personally fed innocent villagers to their demon boss For the Evulz while making him watch, he undergoes a complete My God, What Have I Done? moment as soon as he snaps out of it. Furthermore, the anime will edit the more graphic deaths of humans from the manga while leaving gory demon deaths intact. One example of this is Bankotsu, who is ultimately defeated when Inuyasha cuts him in half, but the anime creates a backstory for Bankotsu's BFS that gave it demonic powers when it had slain 1000 humans and 1000 demons... just so Inuyasha could send back his attack with the Bakuryuuha, something Inuyasha in the manga had realized in frustration that he couldn't do because Bankotsu was a human with no demonic aura.

Foreshadowing
 Inuyasha (Manga) / int_9d12bbc1
comment
Foreshadowing: A brilliantly blatant yet easy-to-miss example occurs when Naraku manipulates Sango into stealing Tessaiga for him. He is able to hold it and briefly uses it against her. Amidst the ensuing drama, the audience isn't likely to remember that said sword was suppossed to have a demon-repelling barrier around it that should've left a full demon like Naraku with some ugly burns on his hand... this is explained when we learn that Naraku isn't a full demon at all... Another moment occurs as a result of the same incident. Sango tells Inuyasha's group that they can't trust her because, if Naraku attempts to use the same tactic on her in the future (making her choose between friends and a loved one), she'll make the same decision all over again. Right at the end of the manga, Naraku attempts what Sango feared and does indeed try to repeat the incident. This time, it's a choice between Rin's life and Miroku's life and, as warned, Sango does indeed make the same decision again: attempting to kill Rin to save Miroku. Another throwaway comment, this time by Totosai. When Inuyasha first masters the Kaze no Kizu while fighting Sesshomaru and it's revealed at the same time that Tenseiga has chosen Sesshomaru as its true master, Totosai mutters to himself "Whether Tenseiga lives or dies will depend on Sesshomaru's heart". It takes hindsight to show us just how significant that statement proved to be. After just getting Tessaiga but still being unable to make it transform against Sesshomaru, Inuyasha complains to Myoga about how useless it is, to which Myoga responds that it's a memento from his father and to never let go of it. In the manga, the fact that there is more to the Jewel and that it seems and that it appears to be manipulating a lot of what has happened is introduced very early (basically along with Sango). Magatsuhi is also mentioned at this time and this actually also happens in the anime, but it's Lost in Translation. The Inu no Taishou left two swords made from his fangs, one for each of his sons, but every time his corpse is shown it's missing only one fang. Turns out there was only one sword made from his fang: Tessaiga, which was later split up in two to create Tenseiga.

Changing Clothes Is a Free Action
 Inuyasha (Manga) / int_9d184483
comment
Changing Clothes Is a Free Action: Played straight by Sango at least once in the anime where she changes from her normal clothes to her armor in a second, while leaping. Usually she averts it though, either having some time to change, fighting in her kimono or already wearing her armor since the beginning.

One-Man Army: Despite the back-up his friends give him, Inuyasha is more than capable of this. His sword can slay a hundred youkai with a single swing... and that's its weakest ability. Then there's Miroku, who can take out many youkai with his Wind Tunnel (when he's allowed to use it). And Sesshomaru's sword can slay thousands of youkai with a single swing.

 Inuyasha (Manga) / int_9f5e99a7
comment
Distressed Damsel: The anime likes putting the female characters in distress much more than the manga does, especially Kagome and Rin. In the manga, however, Kagome's last true kidnapping was by the hands of the baby. After that she becomes a full-on Action Girl, saves Kikyo's life, defeats Naraku alone while burning in the flames of Hell, gets her ultimate weapon and her last part of Character Development after facing the shadows of her heart before ultimately killing Naraku and the Shikon Jewel. Rin isn't really kidnapped much, given the length of the manga, but the final time she's kidnapped lasts for quite a few chapters since it's the final battle.

Anatomy of the Soul: The soul is divided in two: Kon and Haku. Kon is the heart (will) and Haku is the power that moves the body: Moryomaru is just a bunch of dead youkai body parts animated by Haku. When Akago is inside of him, he provides the Kon. Kikyo's Kon is the part she stole from Kagome's soul but she needs to constantly steal Haku to be able to move.

Status Quo Is God

Status Quo Is God: Sort of. Just remove the 540 chapters of filler. Joking aside, there was a ton of character development over the course of the story, but it just took its sweet time, and many times it felt like the story wasn't moving. Other parts didn't seem to add much: for example, considering how they both basically ended up disappearing by the end of the manga, and didn't really have much of a serious impact on the plot after their initial appearances, Takahashi could have probably ignored Houjo and killed off Koga and not really changed the story notably. Hell, killing off Koga would have made a lot more sense than sparing him and it would have removed what is arguably Kagome's biggest scrappy moment in the series (which even she realizes was her fault).

Handicapped Badass: Sesshomaru lost his left arm fighting Inuyasha in his first appearance. He still was one of the most powerful characters in the series. Also, while Kikyo is among the strongest characters in the show, her frail artificial body heavily handicaps her; smacking her hard enough or stealing her souls back is often enough to render her helpless.

Inuyasha's youkai form. Insanely high levels of strength and speed, a much improved healing factor, enough youki to make even Sesshomaru feel one, brief moment of fear and have a youketsu capable of holding the evil spirit of the Shikon Jewel immobile against its will and decay a frggin' portal to hell when its sliced by the Dragon-Scale Tessaiga. Of course, there's the little matter of him being a bloodthirsty monster that has barely any of Inuyasha's restraint, and each time it gets even less controllable and less intelligent. Of course, he does get to occasionally take advantage of it and Tessaiga at the same time, whenever someone starts stealing some of Tessaiga's forms, or he boosts Tessaiga with purified Shikon shards.

Alas, Poor Villain: Kagura's death is quite tragic: decides to save Kohaku knowing well that neither Akago nor Naraku will be happy with the betrayal. Naraku mockingly returns her heart before fatally poisoning her with his miasma. The heroes and even Sesshomaru rush to try to help her to no avail. She dies in a field of flowers, with a smile in her face for Sesshomaru being there, and her last thought being "I am the wind, as free as the wind." The heroes try to convince Kanna not to throw her life away and upon her demise, Kagome feels sad for her, having realized that, despite everything Naraku said, Kanna truly did have emotions and wanted to live.

I Can Still Fight!: Mainly Inuyasha and Sango. Sesshomaru, too, at one point - although he manages to avoid these exact words, he still ends up in an argument with Inuyasha over whether he should be on the battlefield at all.

Fuel Meter of Power
 Inuyasha (Manga) / int_af132660
comment
The Wind Tunnel, but thanks to Fuel Meter of Power and Kryptonite Is Everywhere, Miroku can't use it too much. To elaborate: Miroku has what amounts to his own personal black hole in his hand, which he can use to suck any foe into oblivion. Early on in the series, Naraku begins using some poison bees that would kill Miroku if he sucked them in. This leads to nearly every episode having a scene where Miroku tries to use his world-breaking power, only for the bees to show up out of nowhere, forcing him to back off.

What You Are in the Dark: During Kagome's vision at the end of volume 46 she has to choose whether or not to save Kikyo. The Spirit Advisor points out that Inuyasha would never know if she decided to let Kikyo die. Kagome tells the fake Kikyo off and realizes that she has nothing to be jealous over.

Roof Hopping: There goes Inuyasha now, look at him go; boing boing boing. Heck, he roof hops without roofs, somehow managing to double jump his way across the country side, way above the height of most roofs. To quote Kagome's friends, "Kagome's boyfriend runs like he's flying."

Mayfly–December Romance: Since youkai are Really 700 Years Old, any relationship between a human and a youkai. Curiously enough, in the three known relationships like this, the youkai died first. Somewhat justified by other youkai and humans alike viewing this as betrayal and trying to destroy all involved, which the youkai member stopped at the cost of their life (in two of the examples, anyway).

No Cure for Evil: Sesshomaru, courtesy of Tenseiga, at least until he receives Character Development. Averted with Kikyo, who spent much of the manga as an evil mockery of her former gentle self while continuing to retain her healing abilities and her desire to heal. Eventually, her kind nature was saved and restored.

Man of Steel, Woman of Kleenex: Kagome is a normal human teenage girl, while Inuyasha is a half demon who can lift boulders with one hand and take a sword through the chest without receiving any permanent injuries. He also has razor sharp claws on his fingers that cannot be retracted. While they never do get significantly intimate in the tv series or manga, it's not hard to imagine how this could cause some problems farther down the line as their relationship progresses.

In the manga, the fact that there is more to the Jewel and that it seems and that it appears to be manipulating a lot of what has happened is introduced very early (basically along with Sango).

Berserk Button: Miroku is normally very calm and collected, even in the presence of Naraku. But if you dare make inappropriate advances on Sango, he will beat you into a pulp.◊ Manten gets extremely upset when his last few hairs are lost from his head. Sesshomaru's are mostly related to receiving Inuyasha's pity and hearing Kagura's death being insulted. The latter upset him so much that he broke Tokijin over it and endangered his own life in the process. Discuss Inuyasha's love for Kikyo around Kagome. I dare you. Threaten Inuyasha or any of Kagome's friends when she's around, only if you've made your peace with a higher power beforehand.

Mistreatment-Induced Betrayal: Naraku kept Kagura's heart in his possession at all times as insurance against betrayal. Kagura got so sick of Naraku treating her like a slave she actively colluded with the good guys anyway. Probably remembering the end that Kagura came to, Kanna gave Naraku the metaphorical finger by dying of suicide as ordered, but without taking Inu-Yasha and his True Companions with her. She even gives Kagome advice on Naraku's weakness when one shard hits her eye.

The Resolution Will Not Be Televised: The original anime ran for 167 episodes before it was taken off the air. The manga however kept going along, making the anime an example of this trope. However, years later, after the manga had ended, the anime was revived and given 26 episode to pick up where it left off and adapt the manga rest of the manga, which it did, finally wrapping up all the major plot points and giving an ending.

Physical Scars, Psychological Scars: Sango has a scar on her back where her brother stabbed her, a memento of when her family, village and life were destroyed by Naraku. Naraku has a burn scar in the shape of a spider on his back reminding him of his despised human core. Kagura has the same scar as Naraku, a symbol of her enslavement.

comment
Wrecked Weapon: Goshinki broke Tessaiga, breaking with it the seal on Inuyasha's youkai blood. To save Miroku, Sango sacrificed Hiraikotsu spreading in it a very corrosive poison that succeeded in destroying the youkai they were fighting, dissolving the huge boomerang as well. On the other hand, Sesshomaru didn't give a damn when Tokijin broke. Honouring a promise to Inuyasha, Sesshomaru sacrifices his claim to both swords by deliberately shattering Tenseiga's blade against Tessaiga to pass on Meidou Zangetsuha. The broken Tenseiga responds to this by guiding the pair out of the danger they're in and promptly reforges itself. Sesshomaru can't get rid of this blade even when he tries.

Doom It Yourself: In one of the filler episodes, Inuyasha accidentally damages the handlebar to Kagome's new bicycle. While she goes to school, he volunteers to fix it. Given his lack of knowledge on bicycles - or anything else from the modern era for that matter - things quickly get out of hand, and by the time Kagome gets home, the bike is nothing but a mangled ruin.

The general public's treatment of demons and half-demons often borders on this. Case in point: in Jinenji's debut episode, he is automatically accused of attacking and eating people simply because he's a half-demon, and the villagers only discover the real culprit after they form an angry mob and burn his hut to the ground.

Shout-Out: In the first episode, after dropping the cat she went looking for, being sucked into a whirlwind (through the trap door at the bottom of the well), Kagome has just landed in some strange forest she does not recognize, and although she is alone, says out loud, "Toto, I don't think we're in Tokyo anymore!" Also one to The Thing (1982), of all, er, things. During the incident where Kohaku is brainwashed and slays the entire demon hunter clan save for Sango, the daimyo who hired them is decapitated by Naraku (who was posing as his son) and his head turns into a spider - although Naraku kills it, too, before it can skitter away.

Triang Relations
 Inuyasha (Manga) / int_c90381e3
comment
Triang Relations: The Inuyasha/Kagome/Kikyo Triangle is closest to a Type 7 situation, where "Alice" is Inuyasha, and "Bob" and "Charlie" are Kagome and Kikyo who are rivals rather than having no interaction. Inuyasha was effectively engaged to Kikyo when she died and his relationship with Kagome was already well under way when Kikyo came back from the dead (shortly after Koga's entry into the storyline, Kagome and Inuyasha are a confirmed couple), making him honour-bound to both women and completely unable to choose between them. At one point he even admits to Miroku that he was hoping he could solve the problem by having them both (which would have been relatively common for a man in Japan's past, but modern-girl Kagome was definitely not thrilled by that suggestion). It doesn't help that Kagome is Kikyo reincarnated.

Ki Manipulation: Most all the attacks Inuyasha does are ki attacks focused through his sword; he rarely uses it to actually cut anyone, aside from monster-like demons. This is eventually lampshaded by Sesshomaru, who cryptically advises his brother that he's put so many weird powers into the blade that he's forgotten what the point of a sword is (the point of the sword is to cut).

This is played straight by being one of the only contexts where Tenseiga is actually effective as a weapon. As a sword of healing and life, it's lethal when used to fight un-dead beings and demons and spirits originating from the underworld. Which is especially important since such creatures are usually able to No-Sell or otherwise regenerate from anything else due to already being "Dead."

Spoiler Opening
 Inuyasha (Manga) / int_cd83fa5b
comment
Spoiler Opening: The first opening sequence featured Shippo, Miroku, and Sango, long before any of them appeared. Not just the opening, but the first ending as well. The first ending focused on the main three female characters, Kagome, Kikyo and Sango. The problem is that Sango doesn't enter the story until episode 24, after the show has already moved to the second ending. The Final Act opening spoils that Sesshomaru gets him arm back and gets a new sword, and that Inuyasha inherits Meido Zengetsuha, all of which happens well over halfway through the season.

Lighter and Softer: The anime (which already has plenty of violence and nudity) is tame compared to the manga, which goes even further in this regard. One example has Mukotsu's attempted rape of Kagome in the manga; the anime gets around this by having Mukotsu attempt to force Kagome into marriage with him.

When Kagome's friends got to meet Inuyasha, one of the things they asked him was if Kagome asked him to do that.

Evolving Weapon: Inuyasha's sword, Tessaiga, explicitly has the ability to get stronger by killing things and gaining related abilities. note It has to be a strong opponent though. After mastering the Backlash Wave, all of the Tessaiga upgrades were based on this, one way or another. Bankotsu had a weapon called Banryu that gained demonic power after killing 1000 humans and 1000 demons.

Tessaiga initially appears to be this, then it seems to be averted when it's revealed Sesshomaru can use it as well, it's only the youkai-repelling barrier that stops him. Finally, it's confirmed during a Die or Fly test of worth when Sesshomaru deliberately steals Tessaiga's power to test its bond with Inuyasha only to find the power immediately flees back to Inuyasha at the first chance it gets.

Battle Butler: Kanna, the only minion who's honestly loyal. (At least until right before she dies). Byakuya's also completely loyal to Naraku, and like Kanna, throws his life away for one of Naraku's plans, though in his case he didn't even do a posthumous betrayal. Jaken arguably also fits this trope, but with somewhat less "battle".

Adaptation Name Change: Played straight with Amari Nobunaga, who was called Takeda Nobunaga in the manga. However, upon discovering that Takeda Nobunaga was a real person, his surname was changed to Amari in the anime... which they then made into a joke. Many other characters who were originally nameless in the manga were given names in the anime, including: Ginta and Hakkaku, Koga's two henchmen Yuka, Eri, and Ayumi, Kagome's three friends from school Ah-Un, Sesshomaru's two-headed dragon Izayoi, Inuyasha's mother In the Latin American dub, Kagome's name was changed to Aome due to "Kagome" sounding too much like a vulgar phrase. Her name is also changed to "Agome" in the Brazilian Portuguese dub for this reason.

What Kind of Lame Power Is Heart, Anyway?
 Inuyasha (Manga) / int_dd3272bb
comment
What Kind of Lame Power Is Heart, Anyway?: It's explained that the reason Midoriko, the Miko sealed in the Shikon Jewel, was so powerful was because her heart bore a balanced and pure spirit of the "four souls": Aramitama, Nigimitama, Kushimitaka, and Sakamitama. That is, Courage, Friendship, Wisdom and Love. An anime Villain of the Week reveals to Inuyasha and friends that other Shikon Jewels can be made if you can find four souls that strongly embody each of these four characteristics and seal them into a single gem with a Miko as the center. In fact, he attempts to defeat the group because Kagome (the Miko), Inuyasha (Courage), Shippo (Friendship), Miroku (Wisdom) and Sango (Love) are pefect candidates for this process. This is the lesson Sesshomaru's entire journey through the manga leads him to learn.

Reforged Blade: After Tessaiga broke, Totosai reforged it with Inuyasha's own fang, which made the sword heavier. According to Totosai it means that Inuyasha now has to rely in his own strength instead of his father's. Tenseiga is also reforged in order to activate Meidou Zangetsuha, triggered by Sesshomaru's emotionally bruised heart because of Kagura rather than the blade breaking. Later on, Tenseiga does break in battle but reforges itself.

Mars Needs Women: Demons and half-demons in the series have a general contempt for humans, yet numerous demon and half-demon characters are attracted to at least one of them, including Inu no Taisho(he did have a yokai wife before and had Sesshomaru with her), Inuyasha, and Koga.

comment
Family Theme Naming: The three named characters from the demon slayers' village — Sango, her younger brother Kohaku, and their pet Kirara — all have names referring to semi-precious stones (coral, amber and mica, respectively). Additionally, Kikyo and her younger sister Kaede both have names that begin with K and refer to plants (bellflower and maple). Also Kagome and Souta could be taken to mean Bamboo and young grass respectively.

Nemesis Weapon
 Inuyasha (Manga) / int_e50e82e5
comment
Nemesis Weapon: An inversion of the alignments. Protagonist Inuyasha's Tessaiga is a sword of destruction. His rival and evil brother Sesshomaru wields the Tenseiga which is the sword of life. Both were forged from their father's fang, and the swords were chosen for each brother so that they would be unable to fight each other. A good portion of Sesshomaru's early motivation was to steal the Tessaiga for himself. Later he commissioned a third blade, Tokijin, from an evil smith specifically to counter Tessaiga.

Baku: One of the few non-malicious youkai in the series is a baku, though still considered troublesome, as it was in danger of overeating on dreams and taking the good ones as well as the bad. It's also significant for being the only youkai to appear in the present day instead of the distant past.

It's explained that the reason Midoriko, the Miko sealed in the Shikon Jewel, was so powerful was because her heart bore a balanced and pure spirit of the "four souls": Aramitama, Nigimitama, Kushimitaka, and Sakamitama. That is, Courage, Friendship, Wisdom and Love.

Combination Attack: The anime made up one for the films and a filler mini-arc involving Kagome's arrows and one of Inuyasha's special attacks combining together for impressive results. This doesn't actually make much sense because Kagome's arrows purify youki which is exactly what Inuyasha's attacks are made of, but it's not something that ever crops up in the manga.

Nun Too Holy: Miroku is a Buddhist monk... who chases after women, has tried to peep on women bathing at least once, is willing to use violence to make others agree with him (he's beaten up the Tanuki Hatchi at least once, and then threatened to use the Wind Tunnel on him a different time) and is quite willing to fake exorcisms in order to get food, money, lodgings or any combination of the aforemention. Of course, this kind of plays on real-world stereotypes of actual monkish behavior from that time period.

Easily Forgiven: Koga and his tribe murder a whole village of innocent people, and none of Inuyasha's team seem to mind.

The murders he committed are never brought by them in the entire series, although one filler episode in the anime acknowledged it and revealed Koga stopped attacking humans.

Earn Your Happy Ending: After everything the main characters went through, almost all of them got a happy ending. Miroku and Sango are Happily Married and have three kids; Shippo is learning to get better with his powers; Kohaku, accompanied by Kirara, is atoning by helping other people; Rin is staying with Kaede and is often visited by Sesshomaru; and even though they were separated for three years, Kagome and Inuyasha are reunited at the end.
