* AGoodNameForARockBand; Well, no. "BECK" gets settled on because all other options Ryuusuke and Chiba can come up with suck ''worse''. By the time they make their international debut, their first agent comes up with the name "Mongolian Chop Squad". It's used whenever they're outside Japan, usually abbreviated to [=MCS=].
** LineOfSightName: How they settle on "BECK"; they name the band after the dog, who was there at the time.

* BigDamnHeroes: Ryuusuke has a bad habit of making impossible bets. [[spoiler:Later in the manga, at Avalon Fest, he wagers that BECK will get the most viewers, everyone else goes out of their way to help. Matt Reed flies Koyuki in with his helicopter when it seems like Koyuki will be late for the show, and colleague band Room 13 tells people to go to their performance. Even Hype's singer Dexter Adams tells his fans to head to the show. Even the festival's organizer, Jodie Riley, helps out by opening up the gates and let anyone into the stage, even those without passes (since they would end up rioting to get in anyway). Unfortunately, it doesn't quite work out.]]



* BurgerFool: Hiromi used to work at a donut joint when Koyuki met her. She was fired for making a mistake (which is [[NoodleIncident never described]] or brought up again).

* CelebrityLie: subverted. Ryuusuke's claims to be an old friend of Dying Breed guitarist Eddie Lee are largely believed to be of this trope, but is in fact true.

** Lampshaded when Saku justifies not showing his driver's license to Koyuki: he says the photo didn't come out good because he had to open his eyes. But since said photo is neer seen, the trope's still in effect.

* [[FourTemperamentEnsemble Five-Temperament Ensemble]]: a more accurate description of the group's dynamics. Chiba (choleric), Taira (melancholic), Koyuki (leukine), Saku (sanguine), and Ryusuke (phlegmatic).

* LawyerFriendlyCameo: For a series which features real musicians and instrument brands, it's surprising, but there are some, like Music Vibe instead of {{MTV}}.

** Be honest, Eddie Lee gives off the feel like he's a more upbeat version of [[Music/{{Nirvana}} Kurt Cobain]]. He also looks like a younger [[Music/{{Silverchair}} Daniel Johns]].
