* TokyoIsTheCenterOfTheUniverse TokyoIsTheCenterOfTheUniverse: The trope is normally averted in the TM world since the Masaki shrine is located in the prefecture of [[http://wikitravel.org/en/Okayama Okayama]], but in this particular series it's played completely straight.

* StarCrossedLovers: [[spoiler: Isao and Masayo are a ''literal'' example, as falling stars who were transformed into humans (as a super-fast runner who can't stop his race and a BikerBabe chasing after him) and used by Yugi and Tsugaru to separate Ayeka and Sasami further from Tenchi. It doesn't work since Ayeka decides to ''help'' Masayo, and by the end of the episode they're back together.]]

The second TV series based on ''TenchiMuyo'', ''TenchiInTokyo'' is very different from its predecessors. It includes a different backstory for the main characters but in general seems to assume that viewers are familiar with previous versions of the storyline.

In this series, Tenchi [[IJustWantToBeNormal just wants to be normal]], so he leaves his [[HaremGenre Harem]] behind to go to school in Tokyo and work at his grandfather's friend's Shinto shrine. While there he meets Sakuya Kumashiro, the most popular girl in school, who is (naturally) smitten with him, and things seem good... unfortunately, a mysterious girl with fearsome powers named Yugi is threatening Tokyo, and it's often up to Tenchi's old friends (who are all trying to see him anyway) to come and save him... not just from Yugi, but also from Sakuya!

* TooDumbToLive / VillainBall: The plan to separate Tenchi from the others was very spectacular, Yugi would've been successful [[spoiler: had she been less obsessed with Sasami and separating literally everyone from Tenchi in order to make them feel loneliness is a necessity, rather than place the moral dilemma of having to kill a bystander like Sakuya just because she had feelings for Tenchi as well as removing him from a normal life.]]
** Actually would've failed anyway, no villain in any ''TenchiMuyo'' series takes Washu into account. (Unless she's the target, and even then she's usually too wily to be caught.)
** This would give both Washu and [[spoiler: Sasami]] the status of [[spoiler: SpannerInTheWorks]], then.

* {{Jerkass}} {{Flanderization}}: Tenchi and the six girls; the girls' less-than-appealing traits and Tenchi's usually comedic irritable responses to them were all [[AccentuateTheNegative accentuated]] to the point of {{Superdickery}}. Yugi's plan would've never worked on the OVA cast, for example, in fact she would've been beaten and brought into the house after [[spoiler: her attack in episode 13]] if Tenchi didn't [[spoiler:invite Sakuya over to see everyone]] beforehand.



** Going beyond Ryoko. EVERYONE of the main cast TookALevelInJerkass when compared to the other series (see {{Jerkass}} {{Flanderization}} above), we have Yugi as has already been mentioned, and Sakuya is essentially [[spoiler:[[TomatoInTheMirror Yugi's love-love shadow marionette]]]]. The series ends with everybody happy. [[spoiler:Including Yugi, who agreed to put herself on a bus, with the possibility that she could wake up, grow up, and either become or reawaken Sakuya left wide open.]]
