* SchmuckBait: Shyu Omei challenges Shirasagi to a game: he drops a bundle of cash in one jar, a poisonous snake in another, puts a cloth over them, shakes them a bit, then lets Shirasagi pick one. There's no trick to it and the choice should be obvious, but Shirasagi grabs the snake anyways because Shyu Omei specifically manipulates him into overthinking the game.

** The literally larger than life Headmaster, Isamu Shishido also qualifies as a LargeHam of epic proportions. They even speak using epic expressions and speech patterns which this troper had only witnessed in ''FistOfTheNorthStar'', all of which would of course normally be unfit for normal Japanese conversation in modern day.

King Omaha, President of the United States, lives and breathes the positive side of this trope.trope. He exudes patriotism and honor in just about every panel he's in. On the other hand, there are those (especially in America) who consider him an obnoxious Type 2 ParodySue, with his admittedly MartyStu-esque actions throughout the story (such as reversing the RapidAging of two young girls by draping them with an American flag to taking on the main villain in RussianRoulette and ''surviving'' the headshot) being satire of Obama's more...''[[RuleOfCautiousEditingJudgment controversial]]'' aspects and depictions, if not America's in general.
