* LighterAndSofter: As the show continues, less crashing happens, and the genre slowly swaps fronm BloodSport to a typical shonen anime like CaptainTsubasa and InazumaEleven. Justified, since various Leaguers learn to play fair and clean, [[spoiler:and even the BigBad gradually accepts this way of playing games]], making for a less bloody affair on the field.

* CombinationAttack: ''Lots''. Most promiment are the Tatsumaki Formation for the Gold Brothers, and Lightning Crush/Supernova for Silver Castle.

* DemotedToExtra: In-universe example; The Gold Brothers are put into unsuitable positions and even reserves after being beaten so many times, and eventually get fired from the team.

* MadeOfIron: Well, everybody is [[IncrediblyLamePun made of iron]], but Ryuuken and GZ can take much more damage than the others without getting hurt due to having more heavy-duty armor.

* RealMenWearPink: Silver Castle's initial GK, Silkey, has a pink body; Top Joy as well.



* RousingSpeech: Magnum, much like most other Shonen protagonists, has a talent for these.
* RuleofThree: Iron League's three main sporting events: Hockey, baseball, and soccer.
* ScrewTheRulesIMakeThem: Girochi, taking advantage of his position, occationally calls for an Owner Meeting to bend the competition rules as he likes, like what portrays in the World Cup. [[spoiler:He also uses this trope to prevent Silver Castle from being fully taken over by Universal Corporation in the OVA.]]
* ScrewThisImOuttaHere: Mach Windy in the first episode, as he's fed up with his teammates' strategy of beating the crap out of the opposing team's members instead of actually trying to score.
* SeriousBusiness: Dark Organization has a secret department, Section X, to investigate stray or rival Leaguers as they need it. They also have Leaguers as assassins for dirty jobs, to ensure their lead on the board.
* SomethingWeForgot: Silkey and others (the initial members of Silver Castle), at one point, think they've become stronger after the other seven arrive, and forget how they're supposed to play with spirit as they did before. The coach calls them out on this, and they [[spoiler:decide to accept Seagal's challenge against his Shark Suits]]. [[spoiler: The match ends with them severely injured and unable to play in Dark Prince's last game]], but they recalled their spirit and keep working hard as a part of the team until the end.
* StrictlyFormula: For some reason, Silver Castle ''almost never'' plays with any team outside of those controlled by the Dark Organization. Sometimes they fight the very same team twice or three times in a row.
** They ''do'' play with other teams, but they're usually shown with just a few scenes and words, not more than half an episode at most. Their "war" against the Dark Organization is the major plot of the series, after all.
* SymbolicBlood: When injured, the Iron Leaguers bleed oil. Nonetheless, it looks painful enough to make the viewers cringe.



* ThemeMusicPowerUp: Every so often you'll hear a part of the main theme, or the full theme itself, and something awesome ''will'' happen.

* SixthRanger: GZ , specializes in ice hockey. [[spoiler:A former Iron Soldier, like Magnum.]]

]] Might be considered TheLancer No.3.



** While none of the main characters die (despite an EXTREMELY high number of close calls), generic Leaguers often get gruesomely massacred. In the Java Arc this is taken UpToEleven.



* OcularGushers: During the last match of the World Tour the glorious display of courage, grit and sportsmanship makes both announcers cry waterfalls.



** Actually, Top Joy himself has been shown with teary eyes in one of the episodes, and there wasn't a single cloud in the sky.

* HighOctaneNightmareFuel: The scene where Bull Armor goes berserk and massacres his team is quite possibly the goriest scene in the entire show.
** OVA 4 and 5 have a fair share of NightmareFuel as well.
** Also, the vampire episode is fairly creepy.
This list shows the last 10 events of 31. Show all.
