* OrWasItADream: It's left up to the reader to decide whether Ginji rejected reality & went back into a virtual reality coma powered by science & magic, or if he was knocked unconscious & dreamt of a parallel universe.

* CharlesAtlasSuperpower: Ban, and several of the mooks in the series.



* HeterosexualLifePartners: This trope ''is'' Ban and Ginji. Some of the official art from the anime makes it even ''more'' obvious.

* XanatosSpeedChess: Ban's Evil Eye. Not so much using it, but Ban needs to bluff opponents sometimes to think that he has used it when in fact he hasn't, and vice versa. The very threat of him still capable of performing an Evil Eye illusion has forced protracted psychological warfare time and time again.

* YearInsideHourOutside: While the illusions of the Evil Eye last only 60 seconds, it seems that there's no limit on how long you can make someone ''think'' something is happening, allowing for very creative scenarios to be created.

* LightningCanDoAnything: Ginji can generate electricity, which he uses to aid him in fights. And that's about it. However, if he ''absorbs'' a sufficient amount (either from lightning or a large electrical source) he turns into the ''Lightning Lord" whose powers consist of SuperStrength, SuperSpeed, NighInvulnerability, electromagnetic powers, and a HealingFactor for good measure. He becomes a FlyingBrick without the flight.

* AdaptationalAttractiveness: Both played straight and inverted. Ban and Ginji's (and for that matter nearly all male characters) attractiveness was upgraded due to the designs redone by Atsuko Nakajima (who did the adaptation to RanmaOneHalf, amongst others). Meanwhile, the female characters, while not unattractive per se, was redone to avert the original manga's OnlySixFaces, notably in [[MsFanservice Hevn]]'s design. The aforementioned Bishonen Upgrade above is credited as singlehandedly fueling most of the HoYay in the series.

* ScrewThisGenreLetsMakeItABattleManga: The manga was originally a series about Mito and Ban going through hilarious and interesting antics in order to complete missions. Originally, their battle ability was really really low, to the point that normal mooks were a serious threat to them. This caused continuity issues when the series became a full fledged battle manga, for instance Hishiki was originally a "mere" pro wrestler who could be defeated with a bottle of petrol, is retconned into a near indestructible juggernaut.

** Due to his curiosity getting better of him, Ginji accidentally sunk the only known existence of Venus De Milo's arms. Also, he sunk a replica of Venus de Milo itself made from a FantasticDrug. This not only causes GB to miss out on the payment for the arms, but also Emishi and Shidou who was paid to retrieve the replica.

This not only causes GB to miss out on the payment for the arms, but also Emishi and Shidou who was paid to retrieve the replica. To be fair, the GB would not really approve of the drugs being sold on the market.
