* CoconutSuperpowers : KyotoAnimation very obviously tries to avoid showing the girls playing their instruments as much as possible. Of course, the manga also avoided this as the focus was more on their antics.

* SceneryPorn : What you get when you hire [[KyotoAnimation KyoAni]] to do a [[strike:school trip episode taking place in Kyoto]] high school show taking place ''anywhere''.

** Yui hugging Azusa to calm her down has a high resemblance to Kyou's {{glomp}} on Kotomi in ''VisualNovel/{{CLANNAD}}'' (another show by the same studio), especially with the [[http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/Kyou_-_get_to_know_Kotomi_better.jpg the "good girl" part]]. It also occurs in the manga, which might be mere coincidence, but KyotoAnimation sure picked up on it.

* OvertookTheManga: Averted : the second season showed episode 24 (concluding the main story) after the manga had finished about a week earlier.



* PastimesProvePersonality: Aside from the obvious interest in music and song-writing shared by the club, the anime decided to make Mio a sports-fan for a throwaway line in addition to her reading hobby.

* NoblewomansLaugh : Ritsu, oddly enough, when she puts on airs over her test-taking skills.
* NobodyLovesTheBassist: [[AvertedTrope Averted]]. ''Everybody'' loves Mio, both within the band and outside. Mio even is the only band member with her own fan club! The HTT songs also tend to have noteworthy bass lines, mixed way up front.
* NobodyPoops : Partially averted: In the penultimate episode of Season 2, the four senior members of the Light Music Club tells Azusa they all have to use the restroom because "they've been drinking lots of tea" while waiting for her. The rest, thankfully, takes place offscreen.

* FranchiseZombie: What the manga restart has been accused of during its run. A common criticism is the restart only came to pass due to Kakifly's desire to capitalize on the movie's release.

* IdiosyncraticEpisodeNaming : Every episode title is a noun (or noun phrase) followed by an exclamation point.
* IdiosyncraticWipes : The second season has a bunch of different wipes between scenes, like [[http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/k-on_wipe_4921.jpg]], for example.



* ImageSong
* ImagineTheAudienceNaked : Well, imagine the audience is Ritsu but close enough.
** Back when Mio was in 4th grade and had to read her award-winning essay in front of the school, Ritsu tells her to imagine the audience was made up of pineapples (Ritsu's father originally gave her this advice, although Ritsu couldn't change her hairstyle to look like a potato so she used a pineapple instead).
* IncrediblyLamePun / PunnyName : "Only Mio fits Ro-'mio'!"



* InherentlyFunnyWords
** ''Sharekoube''[[note]]skull[[/note]].
** ''Lycopene''.
* InstantBandages : Seems to have replaced Ritsu's [[CranialEruption Cranial Eruptions]] by the second season.
* InstantFanclub : Mio gets hers right after the performance at the culture festival.
* InvisibleParents: Played straight during the regular seasons, except for one brief shot of Yui and Ui's parents celebrating Christmas in a foreign country. Averted in the movie, where Yui and Ui's parents are seen at home briefly right before Yui goes to London with her club.

* HairDecorations : Pretty much a necessity since it's hart to tell Yui, Ui, and Ritsu apart from each other (aside from their bust size) without the accessories.

* DoYouWantToHaggle: Pre-series, Ritsu persuaded a guy to accept a lower price for her drum set. She explains this to Mugi, who then tries it on the music store clerk to help Yui. Through grit, energy, (and being the company owner's daughter) she worked the price from 2,500 to 500!
