* BlandNameProduct: The Anime is full of them, the characters shirts often have Band names usually with one letter swapped, like [[ThePixies The Pixis]], [[TheRamones The Rammones]], [[TheWho Tho Who]], also a common one is Samsang.

** As a matter of fact, we learn in the manga that, of the five members of BECK, Ryusuke is ''the only one who can speak English'', which leads to loads of lost-in-translation when they go to the USA. And it's rather ironic, since Chiba sings mostly in English. So he wouldn't have a clue of what the songs mean if Ryusuke didn't explain (assuming that he did)?
*** It's possible that Chiba knows some (and he raps mostly in Japanese, by the way). We see that Taira later gets to learn as well, leaving only Saku (who is frequently asking "What's he saying?" to Taira) and Koyuki lost in translation.

** Taira is one to RedHotChiliPeppers bassist Flea, from the playing style to the bleached hair.
*** Pretty much expected since Sakuishi is apparently a big RedHotChiliPeppers fan.
** The name BECK is more than likely an obvious reference to the musician of the same name.
*** Considering the [[ThemeNaming naming conventions]] for pets in the series, such as the cockatoo [[Music/LedZeppelin Page]] and the other dog [[Music/KeithRichards Keith]], it's more likely BECK's named after Jeff Beck from Music/TheYardbirds.
*** This becomes unfortunate when Funimation was (eventually) forced to rename their release of the anime, allegedly because the real {{Music/Beck}} complained.

* TechnicianVersusPerformer: the feud between Ryuusuke and Eiji, Ryuusuke being the Performer, Eiji being technician.

** as Eiji disappeared, it's more Koyuki and Hyoudo.

** It should be noted that BECK plays both more technically challenging music than Belle Ame as well as more sonically pleasing music. I don't know if this is an aversion of the trope but it should be noted.

** Particularly weird when it results in a band that [[InkSuitActor the anime uses actual The Pillows songs for the performances of]], but it's not actually supposed to be ThePillows.
*** Actually that band is called "the Heroes" which when written in Japanese katakana is almost the same as the "the pillows" except for an accent mark, so its more of a {{Captain Ersatz}} situation.
*** Does Koyuki's dream (which the others also had) count here?

Added DiffLines:

* AllDrummersAreAnimals: Averted. Saku is probably one of the most calm and rational members of the cast.

** [[JustifiedTrope Justified]] because she grew up in America and only recently moved to Japan. She's perfectly literate ''in English,'' and can speak Japanese just fine.

* CentralTheme: Success doesn't happen overnight. It takes time, effort and even some major risks to make your dreams come true, and everybody has to start somewhere.

Added DiffLines:

* LanguageBarrier: A rare serious example, Koyuki's utter failure to understand a word of English despite singing in it when he runs into some of Maho's American friends, who callously make fun of him to his face, and he has no idea.

Added DiffLines:

* ExpositoryHairstyleChange: Subverted. Koyuki attempts to change his hairstyle to something wilder when he enters high school, but since it's such a bother to style it every day, he quickly drops it and goes back to his usual 'do.

* FiveManBand:
** TheHero: Ryusuke (not in terms of focus, but he ''is'' the leader of BECK after all)
** TheLancer: Taira (always the one with the better thought out judgment)
** TheBigGuy: Chiba (to BoisterousBruiser levels)
** TheSmartGuy: Saku (an aversion of AllDrummersAreAnimals, is calm and rational)
** TheChick: Koyuki (who is the one with the least experience, and [[spoiler:because he doubles as TheHeart]])
