* BratsWithSlingshots: He usually leaves the action parts to Himeko, but would use his slingshots whenever he needs to participate.

to:

* BookDumb: Downplayed, he is way too smart than he looks, but he isn't good at math, and it becomes a problem in his Second Year's finals. This is the guy who can calculate the trajectory of a slingshot projectile ''in seconds''. It's somehow justified because he just needs to be under his concentration mode to study harder. At the end of his finals, he [[SubvertedTrope got the highest mark]]. He's BrilliantButLazy.
* BratsWithSlingshots: He usually leaves the action parts to Himeko, but would use his slingshots whenever he needs to participate. During "Trouble Travel", he outright states that he has to use rather ''soft'' pachinko balls because it would otherwise be a potentially lethal weapon!



* CornerOfWoe: Bossun sometimes curls up in the corner all depressed, particularly when he's being ignored.



* ForceFeeding: Bossun has been forced to drink a bottle of Cola in one go twice, mostly thanks to Chuuma's experiment failures.



* HeroesWantRedHeads: Averted with Bossun, to a T. Just ask Saaya. In fact, if any of the ShipTease in later chapters are to be taken to their logical conclusion, it's pretty clear that Bossun prefers ''blondes''. [[ObliviousToLove He's just not fully aware of it]], yet.



* MundaneMadeAwesome: Bossun's "Concentration Mode" is usually heralded by dramatic techno music and swirly space imagery, since a minute-long shot of Bossun sitting very still while wearing goggles would admittedly be boring. He screams "Concentration Mode" before putting his thoughts and details he perceived with attention, because he wanted to have a cool {{catchphrase}} as well.



* WhatKindOfLamePowerIsHeartAnyway: In addition to being a talented artist, impressionist, and savant at riddles, Bossun has "the power of incredible concentration". Although it isn't a particularly heroic skill (Kenta Shinohara's AuthorAvatar lampshades this when Bossun tries to demonstrate this as an idea for his manga and the former is left unimpressed), his "Concentration Mode" is actually [[HeartIsAnAwesomePower extremely helpful]], especially in a school environment; among others, it grants Bossun near photographic memory, extremely fast calculations, and ability to create an elaborate plan in minutes.



* CutenessProximity: While she can act like a demon with her hockey field cane, she can't resist to cuteness.

to:

* CutenessProximity: While she can act Himeko tends to melt down at the sight of small and cute things, up until the point where aforementioned small thing acts like a demon with her hockey field cane, she can't resist to cuteness.[[CuteIsEvil complete jerk]].



* InterruptedDeclarationOfLove: When she gets conscious about her "I want to be more than friends" feelings for Bossun, she always gets interrupted.
** During the Trouble Travel arc, and after being rescued by Bossun, [[spoiler:they get interrupted by Switch, who was unconscious some moments before the confession happens.]]
** When realizing (and after being convinced by Switch) that she has little time to confess because their High School days are ending, [[spoiler:Bossun interrupts her while proclaiming they are going to go to the same University... which she decides she could confess to him until then.]]

to:

* ImprobableWeaponUser: Himeko usually lays the law with a field hockey stick.
* InterruptedDeclarationOfLove: When she gets conscious about Poor Himeko. She almost confesses her "I want feelings to Bossun in a couple of opportunities... just to be interrupted at the moment she's going to do so.
** After what she went through in chapter 232, [[spoiler:she decides to confess to Bossun when she already accepted that she saw him
more than friends" feelings for Bossun, she always just a friend. She gets interrupted.

previously knocked out]].
** When realizing (and after being convinced by Switch) she realizes that there is not much time left from High School, [[spoiler:Switch convinces her that she has little time to should confess because their High School days are ending, [[spoiler:Bossun interrupts her while proclaiming they are going feelings. And when it was the moment, Bossun tells her that he finally decided to go to the same University... which she decides she could confess University as her, making her to him postpone the confession... until then.]] it backfires badly before their graduation, as Bossun decided to travel the world after high school]]



* OverlyNarrowSuperlative: Himeko refers to Bossun as "the number one in Japan when it comes in finding a way of breaking out of a warehouse with long arms" during the first part of "Costume Break".



* TrademarkFavoriteFood: The Pelollipop Candy, to a point where she knows their entire gallery of strange flavors. She even gets to become their spokesperson for a commercial.

Anyone else who eats them usually vomits. She even gets to become their spokesperson for a commercial.



* BadassAndBaby: When the rest of the Sket Dan got sick, Switch had to be pulled out from his sidelines comfort zone, and is asked by the Principal to take care of his grandson while also having to do other clients' tasks with help of his gadgets.



* GadgeteerGenius: To a degree, his inventions can be amazingly innovative and cool, when necessary... but most of them are impractical and useless.

to:

* GadgeteerGenius: To a degree, his Switch's inventions can be amazingly innovative and cool, when necessary... but most are either useful or AwesomeButImpractical. There are some chapters that show the effectiveness of those if they are combined together, one in which Bossun creatively combined some of them to rescue a boy who is falling from a building, and another where it proves that Switch can be a BadassBookworm if neither Himeko nor Bossun are impractical and useless.with him all the time.



* HypocriticalHumor: At one point, the ever so stoic Switch calls Yagi "expressionless", and gets called out by his peers for it.
--> "Like you're one to talk"



* ObfuscatingStupidity: Soujiro Agata, who is really a MagnificentBastard when he proposes it into mind, however... he is a bit of a DitzyGenius, and quite a case of BrilliantButLazy.



* BlindWithoutEm: He has bad sight and wears contact lenses. He once mistakes the Sket Dan for the Student Council because he apparently can't tell the difference between their room's routes or their members' shadows.

* CatchPhrase: "FOOL!"

to:

* CatchPhrase: "FOOL!"{{Catchphrase}}: Tsubaki could give Mr. T or [[Manga/SoulEater Excalibur]] a run for their money saying "FOOL!" in almost every chapter he appears. Apparently [[Creator/HiroShimono he]] got annoyed at being called one [[LightNovel/BakaAndTestSummonTheBeasts all the time]].

* KamehameHadoken: The Koma cannon, which [[HugeSchoolgirl Koma-chan]] unleashes when she's feeling embarrassed. Although it was initially only a slam to the face.

There is also the chapter when Cherry wouldn't lay receives a hand on confession from a girl... but would tell girl, and gets really troubled because he doesn't want to disappoint her dirty jokes. And he often imagines their measures.with his pervert tendencies.

The 2nd Popularity Poll chapter lampshades this when Enigman reveals his popularity decreased significantly since the last poll (from 9th place to 22nd place, the same as Tanabe-kun aka Bossun's ''drawing'' from one chapter)and is very brutal as to why it happened.

* TrollingTranslator: He once has to translate the Hakata-dialect-speaking Silk's refusal to teach Bossun magic. As a troll, he can't help but add on to what she really said, which Bossun notices right away.
-->'''Tact:''' She said, "You're not taking magic seriously and I don't like that. I don't have the time. Your hair is like a crab and it looks bad."

* RunningGag: At least at first, Switch frequently draws this version of Bossun at random times (such as his farewell banner and during the quiz battle). The Popularity Contest chapter suggests this is how it became really popular with the fans.
* SphereEyes: The most identifiable feature of the drawing is the big, cartoony round eyes, which adds to the cuteness.


Added DiffLines:

-----
* AerithAndBob: Lampshaded by Himeko that, unlike the heroes, the foreigner Anthony doesn't have a name that ends in "er" (like Red Commander, Blue Sub Leader, Pink Cheerleader etc).
* TheScrappy: InUniverse, Himeko is unimpressed when she first gets him from the gatcha-gatcha machine and is plain pissed off when she gets two more of him instead of the cuter/rarer figurines. Bossun's distaste when asked to trade for those three Anthony's suggests he's pretty lame or dislikeable, despite his apparently important role of calling the heroes. [[invoked]]

* TalkingWithSigns: During the chapter where Tact tries really hard (and fails) to not act like the Sket Dan, Smile converses via a notepad (and then proceeds to hang it around his neck much like Switch's laptop, to Tact's chagrin).

Switch's deceased younger brother.
brother who was a genius at computers.



* PlotTriggeringDeath: His death is more or less what lead his older brother to becoming a Sket Dan member and who he is today. In a bleak attempt to make up for his brother's absence, Kazuyoshi started wearing glasses and adopted his hairstyle and nickname -- however it wasn't enough to ease his pain and so he stopped speaking and became a hikkimori for a while. During this time, he became interested in anime amongst other otaku interests. "Switch On" also reveals that because of his guilt and lack of justice over Masafumi's death, he [[spoiler:became the moderator of the "Death Matches" which aimed to humiliate bullies; this was the first major case that Bossun and Himeko took on as the unofficial Sket Dan and is what introduced Switch to them, eventually leading them to ask him to join the club]]. Also out of guilt and not wanting his brother's efforts to go to waste, Kazuyoshi also starts using Masafumi's voice-synthesizer program so he can communicate with others without having to speak.



* TeenGenius: He was the one that developed the voice-synthetizer program that Switch would use later... well, if it wasn't for Kazuyoshi himself of having taught him about programming in the first place...

Added DiffLines:

* PlotTriggeringDeath: His death, along with his wife's, is what lead to Akane raising Bossun and the doctors raising Tsubaki. It's also thanks to the way he died (saving a child) and his willingness to help others that Bossun becomes motivated to help people and create the Sket Dan.


Added DiffLines:

* PlotTriggeringDeath: Akane raising Bossun is due to Haru dying from car-crash wounds during her childbirth, alongside with her husband also dying. Her death being caused by a car crash involving two doctors is also what lead to said doctors being the ones to deliver her children and secretly take Tsubaki for themselves in order to 1) not burden Akane's career and 2) fulfil their own desire to have children despite being unable to bear any. Feeling guilty over the cirumstances of Haru's death and her children's births, Tsubaki's father eventually tells Bossun and Tsubaki the truth, which helps the two become closer and come to terms that they do still in fact have blood-related family.
