Added DiffLines:

** Which become an InformedFlaw in a short time. He has trouble controlling the ball because of his glasses. After the first match in the series, his next appearance shown him throwing a forkball, and his ball control is considered one of his high point.

Added DiffLines:

** And Hiroshi, considering that he is considered TheAce of Edogawa Dora. In fact, every team has one character that is considered as their Ace.


Added DiffLines:

** Outside his criminal records, this is also the reason why Monta refused to use any kind of throw but straight. [[spoiler:His old friend is involved in an accident right before he get a chance to have a rematch. During the previous match, he broke his promise to throw nothing but a straight for the whole match.]]


Added DiffLines:

* BoringButPractical: During the WABC arc finale, this trope is played straight with Shiro, since he knew that his new SignatureMove is too AwesomeYetImpractical because his catcher can't adapt to the move yet, and White Ball is simply not enough to beat Aimond. He decided to throw an extremely fast straight instead.
** Hiroshi is chosen as a team member for the WABC not because of his forkball, but because of his extremely powerful straight. Likewise, Monta also has an extremely fast straight.
** Doraichiro did not have a SignatureMove like every other batter in the series. Despite this, he stayed as one of the top batter and the most consistent batter in the series.
* ButtMonkey: Suzuemon, which become a RunningGag.
* CantCatchUp: During the All Stars team up, Hiroshi noticed that he is nowhere as good as Shiro and Monta. This is the same guy who previously stayed as one of the series top pitcher, TheAce of Edogawa Doras, and during the WABC arc, Shiro himself admitted that he is so good that the Japanese Team need him to win the WABC. Thankfully, he manage to catch up in a short time.
* CaptainErsatz: Benkei looks way too simmilar to WarMachine.


Added DiffLines:

* CrouchingMoronHiddenBadass: Doras as a whole. However, early on the series, Aimond takes the cake. His first appearance is him attempting to use his Fire Impact, and failing in such a ridiculous way. Later on, he is one of Doras Top Batter, one of TheAce of Doras alongside Hiroshi and Kuro, and one of few person in the series who manage to defeat Shiro.


Added DiffLines:

* TheGenericGuy: All we ever know about Suzu is how he is a rich guy, and he has a good baseball sense. When he is put inside Doras, he become stand out because he is extremely generic.


Added DiffLines:

* HeelFaceRevolvingDoor: Doranosuke. He simply want to make a powerful team. How he achieved that goal, however is a different story, since he started as a fairly normal CrouchingMoronHiddenBadass coach that helped Kuro at times, while later on he is [[spoiler:responsible for 2nd Doras squad FaceHeelTurn.]]


Added DiffLines:

* SpotlightStealingSquad: Well, they are the main protagonist, however despite the fact that the majority of the team are not from Doras, every team up matches in the series are practically Doras show off. This is even lampshaded inside the series.

It follows the [[RagtagBunchOfMisfits Edogawa Doras]], an amateur baseball team in Tokyo (specifically, [[CaptainObvious Edogawa]]) which is notorious for not ever winning since they were formed. All the members used to be exclusively of [[RobotBuddy robot-cats]] before Hiroshi and Mika-chan joined in. The main lineup consists of pitcher Doraemon (later replaced by Hiroshi, [[TokenHuman the first human member]] of the Doras), first [[HotBlooded Hyoroemon]], second [[EasilyDetachableRobotParts Pyokoemon]], third [[{{Determinator}} Kuroemon]], left fielder [[TokenMinority Aimond]], right fielder [[TheSmartGuy Guriemon]] ([[spoiler:He later quits the team to study biology in Hokkaido, and is replaced by [[TagAlongKid Chibi]][[ConfusionFu emon]], but later reappears in two different points of the series]]), center [[FragileSpeedster Toraemon]], shortstop [[SpoiledSweet Suzuemon]], catcher [[BigEater Pakuemon]], and manager-slash-backup [[SixthRanger Mika]][[TheSmurfettePrinciple -chan]], who is also the only (first) other human member besides Hiroshi, and the only girl. New characters were later introduced that joined the team, such as [[spoiler:The aforementioned Chibiemon to replace Guriemon in right fielder position]], [[TheMole Mike-emon]], who joined the team to destroy it from the inside but was [[BecomingTheMask eventually accepted]], and [[spoiler:the 2nd Doras squad, which was formed by Coach Doranosuke.]], along with [[LoadsAndLoadsOfCharacters many other characters]] from opposing teams.

* MoeAnthropomorphism: An extra story in volume 17 has someone who looks [[AuthorAvatar suspiciously similar]] to Mugiwara Shintaro asking the characters to help him finish a manga before the deadline (without thinking why the hell he would ask a bunch of baseball athletes for help...), and they proceed to ''totally destroy it to pieces''. Said manga is basically ''{{Dorabase}}'' [[AC:With human characters!]], and to top it off, some of the pages are blatant parodies of volume 3's pages. [[RuleOfFunny Oh, and the characters never comment on this]].
