** The Hakushuu Dinosaurs could be seen as this to the Devil-Bats as a whole. Both are darkhorse teams run by {{Manipulative Bastard}}s and based around a few key players, and are willing to do just about anything to get to the top.

** The Hakushuu Dinosaurs could be seen as this to the Devil-Bats as a whole. Both are darkhorse teams run by {{Manipulative Bastard}}s and based around a few key players, and are willing to do just about anything to get to the top. Main difference is Hakushu has to resort to break bones while Deimon never had to stoop so low (Hiruma admitted to Marco that he would have given the crcumstances).



* GoodEyesEvilEyes: Shun Kakei's "fox eyes", though he just really hates Eyeshield posers. Agon can turn it on and off by removing his glasses to charm the ladies and putting it back when he is in his "crush trash" mode.

Agon can turn it on and off by removing his glasses to charm the ladies and putting it back when he is in his "crush trash" mode. Marco's first hint of how dangerous he can be is his eyes fixing the ball like a predator.

to:

* GroupieBrigade: Sakubara's Sakuraba's fans before his ImportantHaircut.
* HardWorkHardlyWorks: A theme of the manga is that there are physical limits that can't be broken through hard work and the other team as a whole worked hard too.



** Hiruma mentions that no matter how hard he works out his physical ability as quaterback will never make it to the NFL, that's why he goes with trick plays since if it's bluffing he can't lose.



** To be fair, Kotaro only missed that kick thanks to ''hurricane-force winds.''

to:

** To be fair, Kotaro only missed that kick thanks to ''hurricane-force winds.'''' Even then Kotaro admits it's because he wanted to show off his power instead of the finesse that allowed him to score previously in said hurricane.



** Agon is a BornWinner so no matter how despicable he is he will always get away with it. His coach even tells the team that if they copy Agon's behavior he'll drown them under a waterfall since they aren't once in a century freak of nature like Agon. Even the HumblePie he receives from Deimon is light for the guy who throws football at someone's eye.



** Shin tries to do this with regards to an offensive tactic during Ojou's first game against the Naga, however he is denied becuase they had not practiced the ballista enough.

Added DiffLines:

* HitchhikersLeg: When the team's truck runs out of gas during a trip across America, and the group tries to get a car to stop so they can siphon some more. After several failed attempts from the men of the group, Mamori and Suzuna accomplish the task by donning skimpy outfits and posing, causing a male-driven car to slam their brakes for a better look, after which Hiruma "borrows" some gas from the hapless guys.

** Unbelievably, the manga has a little shout out to MarvelComics' infamous ''NFL Superpro''. Seriously.

** There is no explanation what so ever for Agon's behaviour - [[ForTheEvulz the man is just plain evil.]]Although people enabling him since he is that good at everything didn't help.
** [[BloodKnight Gaou seems to break bones for the fun of it.]]

** [[BloodKnight Gaou seems to break bones for the fun of it.]]]] While he does enjoy it, he always goes full strength against every opponent, believing it insulting to not go against an enemy with everything he has.

* BeachEpisode: The Devilbats go to Texas and, while there, visit a beach. Of course Hiruma doesn't do anything without a plan and it turns out he brought the team there so they could A) participate in the Beach Football tournament, and B) to meet up with Hiruma and Kurita's old coach. Also averts the fanservice aspect by throwing in the "Sexy Queens", a band of [[FanDisservice gangly, hairy, spandex-clad men]].

* BoringInvincibleHero: Subverted. The Devil Bats win against teams who are genuinely worse than them, and lose against the better ones. Even at their best they have zero defense which means they can't stop the other team from scoring. Their victory over team above their league were downright miraculous and even [[TheStrategist Hiruma]] didn't anticipate them.
