* LateForSchool:
** The prologue of Episode 1 parodied that; with the trio progressively eating foods improbable in such a scenario: Tadakuni has the traditional toast, Yoshitake had ''curry'', and Hidenori had ''ramen'' -- and [[HypocriticalHumor he had the gall to call out Yoshitake]] for ''not'' having toast.
*** The last episode showed a more ridiculous variation, where [[spoiler:Yoshitake was having ''fondue'' and Hidenori was having ''Brazilian barbecue''.]]
** At the end of ''High School Boys and Consequences'' [[CosmicPlaything Mitsuo]] missed a chance to CrashIntoHello a girl under this trope.



* SchoolUniformsAreTheNewBlack: {{Zigzagged|Trope}}. The main trio wear their uniforms even during summer break or Christmas -- but there were a few scenes in ''High School Boys and Summer Memories'' when they wore causal clothes. This trope was also {{invoked|Trope}} in ''High School Boys and Summer Plans'' when Hidenori asked Karasawa to ''wear school uniforms'' to join a meeting on vacation planning in which the other participants are already wearing school uniforms in Tadakuni's house.

* TakeThat: In the web previews' closing song and Episode 3's ''High Schools Girls Are Funky'', characters note that high school girls can do whatever they want and still be popular: [[Manga/KOn rock band]], [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Swing_girls jazz band]], karate, [[Manga/BambooBlade kendo]] and/or [[Manga/{{Saki}} mahjong]]. Meanwhile, boys don't get much attention because they suck at everything that isn't [[Manga/SlamDunk sports]] or [[Anime/DragonBallZ fighting]].

* [[spoiler:TimeSkip: The final skit of the anime season, ''High School Boys and...'', moves fast-forward to graduation day. Motoharu, Karasawa and the Vice-President (now StudentCouncilPresident) get a visit from the latter's predecessor and Ringo, who now attend the same college. Mitsuo [[ThrowTheDogABone finally receives a genuine Zaku Gunpla as a belated birthday present]]. Yoshitake digs up his ''Rubber Shooter'' mask after ten years. Hidenori and the Literature Girl get closer to each other. Tadakuni is congratulated by Mei, then gets a confession from a girl... who turns out to be a HotterAndSexier Nago. [[MoodWhiplash Of course]], it's AllJustADream by Tadakuni. The season actually ends with a reprise of the trio in a LateForSchool scenario [[BookEnds from the beginning of Episode 1]], followed by [[TheStinger a ''preview'']] for a ''High School Girls Are Funky'' movie that takes a page out of that of ''Manga/KOn'']].

* ParlorGames: The boys play shiritori in Episode 3, except for Tadakuni, who hates the game. He then accidentally joins in several rounds ''completely by accident''.

* RuleOfThree: Most of the skits rely on a triple repeat of the same joke or three jokes with the same theme.
** Three students slip on frozen puddles in one skit.
** Yoshitake's PaperThinDisguise as Karasawa by wearing a white cap works three times in the Kick The Can skit (twice on Mitsuo).
** Mitsuo makes three attempts to get a soccer ball past Hidenori during the Sure Kill Shot skit. [[spoiler:Third time ''is'' the charm in this case.]]

* FiveManBand: When the trio pretend to be in a VideoGame/DragonQuest game, they form a party that fits one quite well. As all but TheHero are played by Yoshitake and Hidenori, Tadakuni has to constantly be reminded who's who.

** As early as the intro before the opening in ''Episode 1'' there are already two: Hidenori calls out Yoshitake for ''not'' eating toast when they're LateForSchool [[HypocriticalHumor despite he not doing the same, either]], then denies the possibility of [[Franchise/{{Gundam}} mecha]] and/or [[Franchise/DragonQuest RPG]] elements being [[BreakingTheFourthWall incorporated into their show]] despite it being a collaborative work between Creator/SquareEnix and Creator/{{Sunrise}}.

* NoEnding: The manga ends with everyone attending a joint school festival. A lot of plot points aren't resolved, and the series doesn't really make a point of doing so.

* {{Chuunibyou}}:
** The [[PowerTrio protagonist trio]] are seen as chuunibyous, in which in various scenes they played as they are part of a {{RPG}}.
** Motoharu [[InSeriesNickname the Delinquent]], despite his notoriety as a delinquent, [[InNameOnly he only really looks the part]], and is one of the main group's friends.

* ShoutOut:
** ''High School Boys and Skirts'': Yoshitake [[Manga/FullmetalAlchemist transmutes]] a pair of panties. He even mentions EquivalentExchange.
** ''The Daily Life of a Lady'': The titular Lady Yukana looks pretty much like [[LightNovel/TheFamiliarOfZero Louise de la Valliere]] with the lifestyle of [[Manga/HayateTheCombatButler Nagi Sanzen'in]][[note]]Except she's not voiced by Creator/RieKugimiya -- the voice actress of both girls -- but by Madoka Yonezawa, of ''Manga/KOn'''s Ui Hirasawa fame[[/note]], and is served by three men who look like [[VideoGame/PokemonBlackAndWhite Chili, Cilan, and Cress]].
** ''[[Manga/OnePiece Yonpiece]]'' appeared to be Tadakuni's favorite manga.
** ''High School Girls are Funky -- Resentment'': Yanagin noted that the little band of theirs [[SelfDeprecation is not good enough]] [[Manga/KOn to go to London]].
** ''High School Boys and Indoor Adventure'': This is basically a RealLife ''VideoGame/DragonQuest'' RolePlay. One role Hidenori played is ''[[Creator/JohnnyDepp Depp]]''.
** ''High School Boys and Dropkicks'': Hidenori gets a drop kick from Emi while screaming ''[[Anime/PuellaMagiMadokaMagica Tiro Finale]]!'' -- a nod to [[Creator/KaoriMizuhashi her voice actress's]] role as Mami Tomoe, who originally uttered the line.
** ''High School Girls are Funky -- Women Who Left a Scar'': Karasawa asked Yanagin [[NotSoStoic to allow herself to get a dose]] of his [[Manga/{{Kinnikuman}} Kinniku Buster]] as payback for beating him up back in ''Resentment''.
** The figure Hidenori wanted to get in ''High School Boys and Store Employees'' looks suspiciously like [[Anime/PuellaMagiMadokaMagica Madoka Kaname]] in her MagicalGirl form.
*** The same skit featured [[VideoGame/PuyoPuyo Ponyo Ponyo]] and [[VideoGame/TekKen Kikken]] playing in the background
** The ''trailer'' at the end of episode 12 is a jab at ''Manga/KOn'' again, calling back what happened in ''Resentment''.
