to:

* VictoriousChildhoodFriend: [[spoiler: In season 1, there was a bit of a minor LoveTriangle where Kaoru had feelings for Goro, who in turn, had feelings for Ryoko. However, Ryoko ended up insulting Goro's deceased father; this, combined with Ryoko being DemotedToExtra, makes it a ForegoneConclusion as to who he ends up with]].

to:

* CoolOldGuy


Added DiffLines:

* OhCrap: If something that goes against his statistics/predictions comes up, he will more likely than not have this reaction.
* StartOfDarkness: [[spoiler: He originally was a catcher who was rather idealistic, not unlike Goro. However, one time he decided to believe in a pitcher, which cost his team the game and got them eliminated from a tournament]]. While it doesn't cause him to become a full-blown villain (early on, he's a TokenEvilTeammate at worst), it ''does'' make him start on the wrong foot with Goro.


Added DiffLines:

* WellIntentionedExtremist: He ''does'' genuinely care about playing the game. It's just that his focus on using stats to win is a bit too extreme if you don't share the same mindset.

HateSink: It's probably easier to list moments where he ''doesn't'' fit this trope than ones that do.
* LaserGuidedKarma: [[spoiler: His abuse of his abilities and harsh style of teaching get him fired]].



* ChuckCunninghamSyndrome: Despite being Sato's potential love interest, we never see her again after he one appearance in season 4.

to:

* SuspiciouslySimilarSubstitute: Arguably for Toshi, due to their shared position (catcher) and status as a NiceGuy. Somewhat Justified, since Toshi didn't go with Goro when the latter went to the US.

* GoodParent: He is very close to his son though is strict when he has to be. When he learned the local little league coach signed Goro up as a pitcher despite being under-aged, Honda Shigeharu forbids him from joining because using the real baseball at a young can seriously harm Goro's hand. Goro does understand and does wait til he's at the proper age to join.
