* NamedAfterSomebodyFamous: Beyond [[CaptainErsatz Freddie]] (unless, of course, he really is [[Music/{{Queen}} Freddie Mercury]]), all of the schools in the show are named after non-native baseball players who played pro ball in Japan. The titular high school is named after [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Warren_Cromartie Warren Cromartie]] (who sued over use of his name), with both [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Randy_Bass Randy Bass]] and [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Orestes_Destrade Orestes Destrade]] also having schools named after them.

Added DiffLines:

* YoungerThanTheyLook: Pretty much every main character in the show is meant to be 16 years old. They sure look a lot older. This is especially the case for the kid who appears at the beginning of "Pootan Gets Fired", who has the same exact badass looking face as everyone else, and he's only ''10 years old''.

* KillerRabbit: [[DiscussedTrope Discussed]] by several of the others when trying to figure out if Kamiyama is {{Badass}} or not. One points out that a rabbit might look all fluffy or innocent, but it'd have to be pretty dangerous to live in a lion's den. "That's one badass bunny," indeed.

Added DiffLines:

* DustbinSchool: Comedy example of this, with the titular school being where all the worst delinquents are put so they won't damage other kids' education.

** In the anime, there are at least two to director Hiroaki Sakurai's [[Anime/DiGiCharat other productions]] - in episode 2, Kamiyama temporarily [[ArtShift morphs into a Piyoko]] during his introspection, and much later on, Dejiko makes an appearance to advice Maeda on his [[CatGirl Cat Boy]] impression.
%%* ShowWithinAShow: ''"Pootan"''.
%%* SittingOnTheRoof
* SomethingCompletelyDifferent: Episode 24 has a "Gorilla works in a sushi bar" story with none of the regular cast.

** Fujimoto teaching his underlings a life lesson, then through difficult online forum interactions, ends up losing patience for the exact lesson he tried to teach, which results in one of his students who actually benefited from the lesson and thanking Fujimoto for teaching it, which then ultimately results in Fujimoto completely doubling back on his word and punching the unsuspecting student's lights out while exclaiming that the lesson was wrong.

** The students having meetings and parties at Maeda's house without asking his permission.
** The Four Great Ones having long bouts of SeinfeldianConversation and debate about trivial matters.
** Characters talking a big game about how badass they are and never actually doing anything badass at all.

** Yamaguchi attacking people for trying to be funny and, to his estimation, not being funny at all, which makes everyone think that he hates comedy even though he has a secret devoted passion for it.
** Banchou-Chan losing his costume, mask, or both.

* RaceLift: Freddie in the in the manga and anime is most definitely white, which even leads characters to often remark "Is that guy even Japanese?!" In the LiveActionAdaptation he's very clearly Asian.
