* GenreSavvy - Played straight in that [[MediumAwareness the characters know]] they're in a Shounen Action/Romance. Subverted, as the conclusions they draw based on that are [[WrongGenreSavvy typically wrong.]]
** Given how Ayumu continually grasps hold of her possible tropes and forces them to work, she may be playing this one completely straight.
** During the Greece Arc the girls seemed to have all gained new levels in GenreSavvy as all of them refer to "Hayate's misunderstandings that he's so good at making" and take this into consideration before jumping to conclusions.
*** Hinagiku, at least, gets to keep her levels afterward when she only briefly gets upset with Hayate for [[spoiler: him being crossdressed and getting hugged by Ruka]] before simply concluding that he's gotten into another predicament with a girl and offering to help him with it (she comes through of course).
*** Hinagiku also has started to extend this ability to the rest of what Hayate says to her, by picking up a bit of his thoughts from his casual compliments while learning not to take things at face value when he sticks his foot in his mouth yet again. They've been shown to have gotten quite a bit closer since she picked this up.

* {{Expy}} - Hinagiku Katsura began as a clear {{Expy}} of Utena from ''Anime/RevolutionaryGirlUtena'', being an assertive and somewhat tomboyish girl with long, pink hair, good and school and sports, and being idolized by pretty much the whole school for being beautiful, talented, and kind if somewhat aloof. Including the [[EvenTheGirlsWantHer hoard of adoring fangirls gushing over her]]. She's basically Utena if she was on the student council instead of opposing it, although she's also the KendoTeamCaptain much like Utena's first opponent Saionji. Heck, for the early part of the series Hinagiku was even drawn in a different, much more flowery style than everyone else which heavily resembled the Utena art style, and her intro chapter cover even showed her with a suspiciously similar-looking rapier and lots and lots of the iconic Utena style roses. While she quickly became her own character, the heavy similarities combined with many elements of the actual plot bearing a striking resemblance to aspects of RevolutionaryGirlUtena - including the student council being atop a clock tower on a nexus of magic/spirit energy, a magical castle called "The End of the World", the "Pillars of Abraxas", and a "power of the gods" which may or may not bring revolution - are a prime source of speculation as Hinagiku becomes more and more entwined in it.

** In an early chapter there is an image of Nishizawa playing a loterry wheel game, a couple of dozen chapters later and it turns out she wins her trip to Greece with that.

* InformedKindness: {{Parodied|Trope}}. The mafia loan-sharks bent on enslaving Hayate as setllement for his parents' debt are redundantly, near-exclusively and emphatically being referred to as "Exceptionally kind people".

* GeorgeJetsonJobSecurity: Among other gags regarding Klaus, a running one is him constantly threatening to fire Hayate if he cannot fulfill an assignment asked to him, no matter how virtually impossible or absurdly petty it is.

--> Hinagiku(very flustered): "My sister is an especially horrible example!! So do not throw away your dreams and feelings of cuteness regarding girls!!"

* JapaneseHonorifics – Hayate uses the -san title for everyone, in keeping with their high-class standing, except Nagi and Sakuya, who he calls 'Oujo-sama'. Nagi is his master, but there seems to be no forthcoming explanation for why Sakuya is included. He has also at least ''once'' called Nagi ‘Nagi-sama’.
** Hayate seems to be rather fickle with Nishizawa though; sometimes he will use ‘Nishizawa-san’ or sometimes not use any honorific at all.
** He also gave Athena the nickname 'A-tan' when they were children, and still calls her that.
*** Hinagiku once commented on this when he refers to Athena as this after [[spoiler: he is "rejected" by her at the end of the Greece Arc]] and notes that it is odd given the circumstances. He then suggested that he could start calling her Hina-tan, to which she instantly gave a deadpan 'I absolutely refuse'.
** There's also Isumi who uses Hayate-sama which at one point enabled Hayate to figure out Isumi's involvement and mission in a certain matter solely because only she ever calls him that.
