** Yuu has admited several times that he doesn't know if he's on the "good" side, there's a time when he recognizes that even those who picked fights on him where posibly "protecting their holyland". This goes to the point that Izawa comments on how stupid is to gather up to just "commit crimes".

* DisproportionateRetribution: Yuu is a rare good guy example of this, and ''nobody'' attempts to justify it in-universe. Basically, you want to fight Yuu? He's good with that, he'll fight you, but he won't hold a grudge. Target someone Yuu cares about who ''isn't'' a fighter? ''Especially'' if your reason is that you're afraid to confront him directly? Yuu will beat the '''absolute hell''' out of anyone and everyone who associates with you until he can find you.

** Late in the manga, we learn that karate is a martial arts form of this trope. [[spoiler: Shougo announces to one and all that he's done playing around when he ''gouges Ryuu's eye and spearhands him in the neck.'']]

Added DiffLines:

* CripplingOverspecialization: Tsuchiya is a wrestler, which means he has to drop onto his hands and knees quite often to use his best moves. The manga goes out of the way to point out that this ''will not work'' on asphalt, severely limiting Tsuchiya's streetfighting. But, as Shougo points out, ''nobody'' can fight Tsuchiya on ground soft enough for him to use his full range of wrestling skills, such as a vacant lot of grass.

* DrivenToSuicide: Yuu wanted to in the backstory, but could not bring himself to actually take the step off the roof. [[spoilers: Masaki has scars on his wrist from an attempt; we later learn that he would have successfully bled out if Mai had not walked in on him.]]

* TragicKeepsake: The [[RuleOfSymbolism crucifix]] Masaki wears around his neck is later shown not to be a mere fashion accessory.
