* JerkAss: Ryuusuke, especially later in the manga.
** Also, Kevin in the manga. He does everything to push the members of BECK (rather, MCS) around while they are touring the USA as the opening act for F.V.E. (the band for which he and his brother, David, who is sympathetic towards the guys, play) just for the hell of it. But then again, he justifies this by the fact that MCS's performances in USA are subpar (which they had been, until Ryusuke rejoined them in Seattle). From what David tells Ryusuke later on, this may be simply prejudice since [[spoiler: Kevin had a Japanese girlfriend in high school, but she cheated on him.]]
** Ryusuke should be more like a JerkWithAHeartOfGold.

* JerkWithAHeartOfGold: Ryuusuke may be a jerk, but he has a nice personality under it all.



* MySisterIsOffLimits: [[SubvertedTrope Subverted]] after Ryuuki hears the members of Beck joke about how much Koyuki and Maho spend time together. His response is to pull Koyuki to the side and give him a condom.

Added DiffLines:

* TookALevelInBadass: A pre-series example. Maho explains that before he started training in Karate, Chiba was timid and a constant victim of bullying. Now he's a brash delinquent with fighting skills to back it up.

Added DiffLines:

* BewareTheSillyOnes: Chiba's a loud, passionate goofball, and his temper is largely played for laughs. He's also hands down the toughest fighter in the band, and kicks ass on behalf of his friends more than once.
* TheBigGuy: Chiba is loud, proud and a little dense, but the most loyal friend you could ask for. Beck is a non-action series, but whenever there is a fight to be had, you can be sure Chiba is in the middle of it or on his way.


Added DiffLines:

* BoisterousBruiser: Chiba has NoIndoorVoice and a temperament to match, and is the band's de facto muscle when trouble arrises.

* IKnowKarate: It's mentioned that Chiba is a martial artist, though for most of the series it's an InformedAttribute we only see when he harasses his friends with kicks and [[WrestlerInAllOfUs pro wrestling moves]]. His skills are finally put on display when [[ChekovsSkill he uses Karate]] to rescue Koyuki from [[TheBrute a recurring villain]] and periodically [[CurbStompBattle trounces]] [[BullyHunter schoolyard bullies]]. It's even more impressive in the live action movie, when he knocks around a large gang at the skatepark. Most of the fight happens off-screen, but the bullies limp away frantically as Chiba triumphantly cheers, so it can be inferred he's just as tough as he claims to be.

* TheAce: [[DownplayedTrope Downplayed]] with Koiyuki. He's considered by those around him to be naturally gifted at singing, but his guitar skills are considered mediocre at the start of the story. The latter continues to grow with the more he practices.

Added DiffLines:

* ArousedByTheirVoice: Koiyuki's singing voice is considered this InUniverse; it was what initially got Beck noticed and Koiyuki finds himself developing fangirls amongst his classmates after a performance at the Cultural Festival.


Added DiffLines:

* SenseiChan: A DeconstructedTrope with Momoko. Because she is young and attractive she gives off this vibe, but because of it [[RealityEnsues none of the students or faculty actually respect her as an authority figure]]. This, combined with the rumors about her, ends up getting so bad that she is forced to leave her job.
