* GenreShift: The series is a romantic comedy with plenty of action. The third and final movie is a romantic drama with zero action.

%% commented out as ZeroContextExample * InconvenientSummonsInconvenientSummons: Kiyone gets a rare non-magical example; she's DrumBathing when Washu yanks her through time and space to give her an {{Infodump}} on Kain. When you're friends with a mad scientist with a teleporter, this is to be expected.

* GenerationXerox: Doujin images from Kaishima show images of life with Tenchi's kids is much the same as their dad's. Expecially with the ChildhoodFriendRomance between Ryoko and Ayeka's daughters and Seina's oldest son.

* ImpliedLoveInterest: Ryoko in the ''Tenchi Universe'' continuity. The series ends with Ryoko showing up at Tenchi's house after supposedly dying, and vowing to him that she's going to win his heart fair and square. In the second movie in that continuity, Ayeka basically concedes defeat to Ryoko and allows her to be the one to rescue Tenchi from Haruna's alternate dimension. The film then ends with a shot of Tenchi and Ryoko enjoying a quiet moment together as a wind shakes the trees, mirroring a scene involving Tenchi's parents from the film ''Tenchi Muyo in Love''. Although it's ambiguous in other continuities which girl Tenchi likes the most, the ''Tenchi Universe'' continuity drops some pretty big hints that he will end up with Ryoko - though the author later wrote [[http://tenchiforum.com/viewtopic.php?f=20&p=21643#p21643 material]] implying that he'll end up marrying both Ryoko and Aeka - and ''both'' the resulting daughters will end up marrying Kenshi's son with Noike.

** Mihoshi is ''Washu's descendant'', her grandfather being the result of Washu's rather happy first marriage... which ended disastrously when her husband's political background demanded she give up ''both'' her husband and child. This is what drove her to become a TrulySingleParent.

* IncestIsRelative: Oh boy...where to begin? The original OVA series alone has Ayeka, who is engaged to marry her elder half-brother Yosho. She later tracked him to Earth, found out that he had aged physically to a point where she no longer considered him attractive, then fell in love with Tenchi...who happens to be the grandson of Yosho (or Katsuhito, as he knew him), making Ayeka (and her little sister Sasami, who is also interested) his ''great-aunts''. Ryoko is technically Washu's daughter, as she was created by fusing an egg-cell from Washu with an amorphous entity called "Mass"; Washu herself is actually a goddess and a sister of Tsunami, which technically makes her ''Sasami's sister'' and thus makes both Ayeka and Sasami '''''Ryoko's aunts'''''. WordOfGod is that Tenchi's father is Katsuhito's descendant by an earlier marriage, and this earlier marriage was with his cousin and both her mother and his mother are from Earth descendants of Masaki Jurai, and also that Mihoshi is ''Washu's descendant'' by her grandfather, the result of a marriage that Washu was in before she created Ryoko. The third OAV series and ''GXP'' only complicate the web of relationships even further.
** If we include every important character in the various shows, there are only two or three members who are not related to Tenchi somehow. [[Anime/TenchiInTokyo One doesn't actually exist]] and [[Anime/TenchiUniverse Kiyone isn't interested]] ([[DependingOnTheWriter most of the time]]).

** Ayeka and Ryoko in the OAV
* UnwantedHarem: ''The'' definitive example, and arguably the ''first'' [[Manga/UruseiYatsura Ataru]] ''did'' want his harem, he just always failed relating with all the girls in it, due to his JerkAss personality, while Tenchi always was pretty ambivalent about the whole deal.

OAV.
* UnwantedHarem: ''The'' definitive example, and arguably the ''first'' [[Manga/UruseiYatsura Ataru]] ''did'' want his harem, he just always failed relating with all the girls in it, due to his JerkAss personality, while Tenchi always was pretty ambivalent about appeals to more of its target audience. Arguably an UnbuiltTrope; Tenchi Masaki is ''[[LiteralMetaphor literally]]'' an UnluckyEverydude - he is both a ButtMonkey and a NiceGuy. Being a Nice Guy means he's [[AboveTheInfluence too ethical to abuse the whole deal.girls' affections]], let alone MarryThemAll with any kind of speed. Also, every one of the girls is [[MagicalGirlfriend both jaw-droppingly gorgeous and a prime example of a certain fetish]]... but they're also actual ''people'' with all the complications thereof. As he's a Butt Monkey, those complications ''threaten his life'' - along with the entire '''planet''' and occasionally '''''universe''''' - on a regular basis.
** ManicPixieDreamGirl Ryoko? A {{Space Pirate|s}} with a price on her head several dozen orders of magnitude greater than Earth's combined GNP.
** The [[EverythingsBetterWithPrincesses Princesses]]? Elegant and refined Aeka is a bossy, prudishly-repressed proto-dominatrix, while adorable homemaker Sasami is a little girl who happens to be [[spoiler:the avatar of one of the three [[GodWasMyCopilot goddesses who created the universe]],]] and they're both [[IncestIsRelative half-sisters of his grandfather]].
** The cute lil' MadScientist? She's [[Really700YearsOld really 20,000 years old]], is the mother of the Space Pirate, she [[MrsRobinson wants him anyway]], and she's [[spoiler:''another'' of the three goddesses who created the universe]].
*** Oh, and WordOfGod says that the [[spoiler:third goddess wants in as well]].
** There's also two [[SpacePolice Galaxy Police Detectives]]; both are interested, but the sensible one is MarriedToTheJob and the other is an absolute ditz who clears cases mostly through blind luck. [[spoiler:The ditz is also the grandchild of the Mad Scientist's disastrous first marriage]].

The {{OVA}} series ''Anime/TenchiMuyoRyoOhki'' (simply ''Tenchi Muyo!'' in the United States) follows the life of Tenchi Masaki, the teenage grandson of a Shinto priest (who has taken it upon himself to teach Tenchi an ancient form of swordplay). When Tenchi steals the keys to -- and intrudes upon -- a sealed cave on the shrine grounds that legends say holds a sleeping demon, he accidentally releases Ryoko, a [[SpacePirates Space Pirate]] who had lain in suspended animation for seven centuries. This lone act begins a cascade of events that results in Tenchi moving from Kurashiki to the Okayama countryside, acquiring a half-dozen alien girls in an UnwantedHarem, discovering his own secret heritage, and becoming involved in events of literally cosmic proportions.

Added DiffLines:

* FlyingFirepower: Ryoko in most iterations of the franchise can both fling some kind of energy blast and fly, among her other powers.

* NeverTrustATrailer: This early Toonami [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YzmNRv7yVfk promo]] uses clips from the OVA, ''Tenchi Universe'' and ''Tenchi in Tokyo'', giving the impression that it's one continuous show.
