* KickTheDog - A literal example. One one occasion Takamura angers Ippo and Wanpo with a {{Hurricane of Puns}} regarding dicks. Takamura uppercuts Ippo and kicks Wanpo in retaliation for their backtalk... or the equivalent.

* {{Irony}} - Before the [[spoiler: Mashiba vs. Sawamura]] fight, when Kimura gloats over it hoping that they will rip each other apart and leave the champion seat free for the other "non-monster" Jr. Lightweights like him, it's PlayedForLaughs. After said fight, [[spoiler:Mashiba is disqualified and suspended and Sawamura is forced into retirement by a motorbike accident, granting Kimura's initial wish.]] This time,
[[DudeNotFunny he doesn't laugh]]. [[JerkAss Well, not right away.]]

** Around chapter 700, the Kamogawa team is engaged in a baseball match for a few chapters. [[CrowningMomentOfFunny They win thanks to]] [[TeamPet Wanpo]]. It's quite refreshing, but also borders on MoodWhiplash considering it comes just after the [[EvilerThanThou Mashiba]] [[EvilVersusEvil vs.]] [[BloodKnight Sawamura]] fight, which was nothing short of a bloodbath

* ParentalAbandonment - A lot of boxers have missing parents. Ippo's [[DisappearedDad fisherman dad]] Kazuo drowned at sea while rescuing others, and nothing is said about Volg's and Yamada's fathers. Miyata's [[MissingMom mother]] abandoned him when he was a child. Sendo's parents are both dead (his mother ''may'' have [[DeathByChildbirth died when he was born]] or very soon afterwards), and he lives with his paternal grandmother. Takamura is from a wealthy family, but his parents disowned him when he was in high school, due to his violent nature. The loss of ''both'' of his parents when he was in highschool was [[spoiler: Ryo Mashiba]]'s FreudianExcuse, too. Sawamura is distanced from his mother after [[spoiler: he attempts to ''[[AxCrazy kill]]'' her abusive boyfriend with a knife.]]

* ArtisticLicenseSports: While most of boxing's rules and foundations are respected, there are some moments that would realistically lead to either disqualification (one boxer plummeting the other long after the match is stopped by referee) or technical knockout (boxers barely standing on their feet and being incapable to defend themselves).

* CraftedFromAnimals - Having the fame of fighting a wild bear and not just surviving, also killing the animal with his fists, Mamoru Takamura usually appears with the skin and head of that bear as a cape previous of his fights, also showing the scar of the bear clawing in his chest.

** One of the anime's intermission cards shows Ippo desperately trying to catch up to Takamura, Aoki and Kimura during the running workout. After the aforementioned BeachEpisode (the one that shows [[spoiler: Ippo being finally able to outrun Aoki]]), it's ''Aoki'' who's trying to catch up to everybody.

* ChickMagnet - Hayami, so much. And he has the InstantFanclub to prove it! Also, Miyata to a degree.
** Miyata sure counts, because [[CelibateHero he couldn't care less]] who's [[{{Squee}} squeeing]] over him. [[HoYay (Especially when it's Ippo.)]] Dr. Kazuki Sanada as well - good-looking doctor in a hospital full of admiring nurses? You bet.

* WeakButSkilled - Kenta Kobashi. Considered a mediocre boxer for his lack of power and knockout wins, Kobashi nevertheless gave Ippo a run for his money by playing mind-games, making frequent use of clinches, and using a stance that allowed him to easily reach with point-getting jabs. By playing with the rules and being ''very'' GenreSavvy, Kobashi managed to win most of his matches. [[spoiler:He would've beaten Ippo too, if he hadn't accidentally scored a solid blow on Ippo during a dodge, and gotten entranced with the 'feel' of the knockout punch.]]
** And Keichii Take. Looks like your everyday dad, this guys looks really harmless, isn't it? Here's hint: [[TheAce Date]] ''fears'' him. [[spoiler:[[FlawExploitation For]] [[CombatPragmatist a very good]] [[ManipulativeBastard reason.]]]]

** To be fair regarding Ippo though (and Miyata and Takamura for that matter), this is definitely TruthInTelevision. Those gifted, generational talents rarely lose more than 3 of their first 30 offcial matches or so. A good boxer in general usually only starts losing consistently a few years into their 30's and typically retire with 10 or less losses vs 40 or more wins. Ippo is still in his mid twenties and only has 25 fights under his belt. If he had lost more than 5 or so up to this point, he might as well have just quit. Note also, that Ippo has yet to actually enter the ring since his last loss, and there is still lingering doubt as to whether or not he even should get back in. He could very well have become punch drunk.

* WebcomicTime: A standout example. The events of the manga began in what was once PresentDay in 1989, a period of 27 years as of 2016 in real life; It's only been about 9 years in the story so far.
