*** Another even more meta joke is the nigh-impossibility of Hinagiku ever properly confessing her feelings to Hayate. Hata-sensei picked up on this one too and wound up having Hina confess and/or ''propose'' to Hayate at least four times in one chapter...but each time the meaning was lost because she couldn't bring herself to say it in a direct manner (she even broke out the old Showa Era "I want to eat your miso soup every day" which even the narrator notes would be completely misunderstood, unless they watched MaisonIkkoku).

** On a more meta-note, it's been noted to much amusement that Hayate never gets to see {{Fanservice}} of Hinagiku despite seeing or being the ''cause'' of it for literally almost every other female in the cast. Hinagiku also never seems to be around when Hayate is providing the fanservice, with the only time she has ever seen him crossdressed was on the boat to Athens where we didn't see them together or her reaction to it.
*** Hata-sensei seems to have picked up on this and flipped it around. Hayate has seen ''plenty'' of {{Fanservice}} from Hinagiku and actually seems to get more of an eye-full than the ''readers'' as Hina implies that he walks in on her changing a lot off-panel. The fact that Hayate [[CovertPervert knows she's changing behind that door and keeps opening it]]...

** On a more meta-note, it's been noted to much amusement A common meta-gag for years was that Hayate was never gets to see around for Hinagiku's {{Fanservice}} moments, leaving him with almost no instances where he saw Hina in various states of undress despite it being a common gag with him and the other girls. This coincided with several years of Hinagiku despite seeing or being the ''cause'' of it for literally almost every other female in the cast. Hinagiku also never seems to be around when Hayate is providing the fanservice, with just about the only character to not see Hayate any time he was forced to crossdress - the one time she has ever seen him crossdressed did was on all the boat to Athens where we didn't see them together or way into the Greece Arc and ended up being off-panel so the readers never saw her reaction to it.
unlike with the other girls.
*** Hata-sensei Hata seems to have picked up on taken notice of this and as the situation got flipped it around. around after the Greece Arc. Now Hayate has seen ''plenty'' plenty of {{Fanservice}} from Hinagiku and actually seems moments where sheer coincidence conspires to get have him catch Hina undressed. He even sees more of an eye-full than the ''readers'' as Hina implies that he walks readers do and is heavily implied to walk in on her Hina changing a lot regularly off-panel. The fact that Hayate [[CovertPervert knows she's changing behind that door and keeps opening it]]...



** Hayate's bad luck in general has got to be this, especially as everyone is aware of it.
** This one is part {{Bowdlerization}} and part AscendedMeme, but in the anime, the phrase "Very Nice Men" or somesuch adaptation thereof invariably refers to the {{Yakuza}} that Hayate's parents sold him to. This extends to pretty much all fan discussion of both the manga and the anime.

to:

** Hayate and Hinagiku's incredible similarities started on the level of BirdsOfAFeather and eventually morphed into a gag unto itself. Even the anime joked that Hayate and Hinagiku could secretly turn out to be siblings. By the later part of the manga you can bet that if Hayate is shown to have a trait, characteristic, or talent, then Hinagiku will be shown to also have it within a couple chapters and vice versa. One example is when Hayate is seen to be a BigEater for a contest at the end of summer break and not long after Hinagiku is shown to be able to eat just as much on the Class Trip...the same chapter that reveals both Hayate and Hina are Olympic-level snowboarders.
** Hayate's bad luck drives entire plotlines and provides much of the humor in general has got to be this, the series, especially as everyone is aware of it.

* ParentalSubstitute - [[spoiler: Hinagiku to Loli!Athena. Holy. Shit. Basically there's a little girl who may or may not be an aged-down Athena who appeared on the campus out of nowhere and bumped into Hinagiku. When the others asked where her mother was she pointed to Hina and said "Mama". Cue absolutely everyone in the panel being completely stunned. Knowing Hata...and the advice Hayate got earlier in the chapter...there is a very good chance that Hayate will be playing fake!dad, which will result in mind-blowingly-large ShipTease with him and Hinagiku]].

** Chapter 300. Not only did it see the return of [[spoiler: Athena, who either appeared in a dream or broke into Hayate's bedroom]]. It also had Aika returning from Greece at last to set up a few possible plot points. Then things get weird when [[spoiler: Hayate and Hinagiku are talking and a little girl who looks like Athena from the End of the World Arc appears out of nowhere and bumps into Hina]]. Then just to ''really'' make us all wonder what the hell was going on, [[spoiler: loli!Athena calls Hinagiku "mama"]].

** And even though he probably doesn't realize it, Hayate himself is quite good at this. [[AttractiveBentGender Especially when cross dressing]] as a [[MoeMoe super moe]] CatGirl. Or maybe that would be [[IncrediblyLamePun Kitty Cat Eyes]]?

*** As of Chapter 483 this seems to have shifted into [[spoiler: "they would, but..."]] after a rather heartfelt conversation. Given that Hayate had just [[spoiler: turned down minor character Konoha's love confession after a surprise kiss from her earlier]] he was in a surprisingly open mood when Hinagiku approached him to ask him about it. When Hinagiku asked the critical question, [[spoiler: what if it had been her that confessed her feelings to him instead]], Hayate for once gave a serious and direct answer: [[spoiler: he would be very happy if Hinagiku were to say that she loved him and he truly feels that being loved by someone as wonderful as her would be a dream come true]]. This leaves the current situation as, [[spoiler: Hayate pretty much told Hinagiku outright that he likes her, but still doesn't believe she could actually fall for him, Hinagiku now knows that Hayate would return her feelings if she told him, but that she can't right now because Hayate couldn't go out with her even if she told him, not because he doesn't like her, but because of his massive debt. Now Hinagiku will be looking for ways to help get Hayate's debt payed off, and she certainly seems to believe that "they will" once he's debt free]].

* WillTheyOrWontThey - Despite being a HaremGenre series, the manga is a pretty rare case where there is no OfficialCouple that is all but waiting to be confirmed. The first chapters alone set up a LoveTriangle between Hayate, Nagi, and Maria and swiftly added Sakuya and Isumi soon after. Then Nishizawa was added and the main LoveTriangle seemed to shift to Nagi/Hayate/Nishizawa. ''And then'' [[BreakoutCharacter fan-favorite]] [[StudentCouncilPresident Hinagiku]] [[ThirdOptionLoveInterest Katsura]] was officially confirmed as a LoveInterest and the shipping base went wild. Add in Hayate's NewOldFlame Athena and even more minor characters...
** While the series is a rare example of a series where "they won't" is a real possibility and it's up in the air if main heroines Nagi and Maria are indeed who the author intended the readers to root for, the early part of the series did toy with the possibility of Hayate/Nagi a bit more than others. Mostly on Nagi's end as Hayate never really displays that sort of interest...and is explicitly not a {{Lolicon}}. It does a good job overall of making all of the girls very sympathetic and developing several quite well at the expense of having a single "main" couple to root for.
** Later in the manga, after the Golden Week Arc, this starts to come into full force for Hayate/Hinagiku and starts to ShipTease them mercilessly while still being as unclear as ever if it would ever happen. While the two have made some progress, their chapters are typically of the "two steps forward, one step back" where things don't quite reset but leave plenty of room for the other heroines to compete. However they have grown quite close over that time, even to the point of admitting things to each other that they wouldn't tell to other characters, which may hint at the author's (or at least the editors') intentions. That and the fact that around chapter 400~ or so the Hayate/Hinagiku ShipTease gets more intense and happens almost like clockwork.

** Chapter 483 has a heart-to-heart between [[spoiler: Hayate and Hinagiku]]. While most of the conversation is stuff the readers would know or has been heavily implied, we also got [[spoiler: Hayate telling Hinagiku that if she were to confess to him, he'd be really happy and that being loved by someone as amazing as her would be a dream come true]]. It's followed afterward by [[spoiler: Hayate explaining, while still believing this is a hypothetical situation of course, that even if Hinagiku did confess to him that he couldn't go out with her, not because he doesn't like her, but because of his massive debt]]. It certainly gave [[spoiler: Hinagiku]] and the readers something to think about...
