* {{Bishounen}}: They're all slim, tall (bar Nagisa and Nitori), and handsome, and could be more accurately described as "pretty" than "manly," which is par for the course for most swimmers.

** Sousuke -- Whaleshark

** Sousuke -- WhalesharkWhale shark



* LightIsNotGood: The Samezuka uniform is mainly white, and he's the closest thing to an antagonist in Season 1. Later subverted and ultimately averted once his HeelRealization kicks in near S1's end, and [[JerkWithAHeartOfGold becomes a]] [[HeelFaceTurn much better person]] by the time ''Eternal Summer'' rolls around.



** In ''Endless Summer'', he also has this attitude towards Momotarou who is much more direct in his attempts at flirting with Gou, which often translates to Rin unceremoniously dragging him away.

* {{Foil}}: To Makoto. They both fill the roles of TheBigGuy and childhood friend of the team's freestyle swimmer. But where Makoto is timid and universally friendly, Sousuke is blunt and intimidating. Conflict is an alien concept to Makoto and Haruka, but Sousuke and Rin "fight all the time" ''because'' of how intensely they care about each other. [[spoiler:Makoto stops competing against Haru because their friendship isn't about challenging each other; Sousuke stops competing against Rin because he's physically broken]].

* VitriolicBestBuds: According to Rin, they "fight all the time", and their secret handshake involves fake punching each other. Sousuke also makes fun of Rin for being a {{Tsundere}} ("You complain, but you're going to do it for them, right?"), and Rin kicks him on a semi-regular basis.

* AmbiguouslyGay: Almost every single major male character show zero interest in women and have very, uh, intense friendships, to put it lightly. [[spoiler: Though the ambiguous part for Makoto and Haruka is the most debatable.]]
