* SpiritualSuccessor: ''Air Gear'' homages and is otherwise inspired by ''VideoGame/JetSetRadio'' in several ways. Exhibit A: The background instrumental "[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bUvBiG1U7yM [=NOT=] Hummin' [=BUT=] Vibin']]", which is clearly a SuspiciouslySimilarSong of "[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9assyPp68Jo Hummin' the Bassline]]" from ''Jet Set Radio''. It helps that the soundtrack was done by Hideki Naganuma, the man responsible for the bulk of ''Jet Set Radio's'' soundtrack.

Added DiffLines:

* RapeAsDrama: At the very beginning a gang takes over Itsuki's original gang's turf, beat him up, and then are very strongly implied to rape all the girls that hang out with them. One girl in particular plays almost no part in the story, and pretty much all we know about her is she had a thing for Itsuki and she was a virgin before those gang members got to her. The whole thing serves basically no purpose except to give Itsuki more motivation to fight back.

* {{Badass}}: Lots of people, but Ikki, Sora, Ringo, Kazu, Agito, Nike, and Rika all stand out.



** Nike is mentioned in passing several volumes before his introduction. Then he makes his entrance by kidnapping someone before revealing himself to be a {{Badass}} HeroKiller.

* CompetenceZone: ''Air Gear'' notably averts this. While the main characters are 14-15, many other skilled riders and established [[{{Badass}} badasses]] are in their later teens and early twenties. Others are in their early thirties, and even much older men get their moments because even though they aren't as spry as the younger characters, they are far more experienced and know how to get things done.

* {{Second Year Protagonist}}s: The entirety of the main cast (Kogarasumaru + Ringo + Kururu). However, while they are often shown at school, the series doesn't really focus on their school life.

** Whatever {{badass}} display you just saw, it will be topped the next time you see a fight that's more than a street-brawl. [[spoiler:Hacking into other riders' roads and trashing a battleship this fight? Ha! In the next fight, they temporarily tell gravity to go to hell ''and it listens'', resulting in a few minutes of there being no gravity on earth.]]
