* AesopAmnesia - By the end of season 1 Kaiji seems to have learned his lesson about hard work and not trusting life to give you what you want. When we see him again at the start of season 2, he's back to the lousy deadbeat gambler he was at the beginning. Justified in that a year has passed since the end of the first season.

* BadBoss - Hyoudou. If you work for him and if you do anything he doesn't like, he'll do various bad things to you. He also puts his bare feet in a tub filled with wine and makes his workers drink out of it. Once, a worker started speaking during this, but Hyoudou said he didn't appreciate his tone of voice, and had him taken away. It's anyone's guess as to what happened to him, but it was without a doubt very bad.

* GambitRoulette - Kaiji's plan to beat the bog at the end of Season 2 relies on a series of convoluted {{plan}}s. But Kaiji and Ichijo both DidntSeeThatComing so many times, it turns into a Roulette that would ''almost'' look like XanatosSpeedChess if it weren't for the fact that Kaiji can't change '''anything''' after he starts playing.

* WhatHappenedToTheMouse - [[spoiler:Tonegawa's]] fate is unclear at this point. Seeing as how [[spoiler:Kurosaki]] has replaced him by series 2, it's probably safe to assume that, at the very least, he was demoted to a lower rank in Teiai.
* YankTheDogsChain - Series 1 plays this brutally with [[spoiler:Sahara's death. After making his way across the bridge of death, he finally prepares to open the door to cash in on the price money... Only to be blown off the building by the air compression blast from the window towards a certain death.]]

* EarAche: [[spoiler:In the E-Card game, when a drill is fastened to Kaiji's ear. Kaiji is forced to bet a certain number of millimeters, if he loses a round, the drill will advance this number of millimeters, and if it advances thirty millimeters or more, it will pierce his eardrum (and we get several {{Imagine Spot}}s of this actually happening). But wait, it gets worse! Eventually Kaiji bets ''more'' then thirty millimeters, thus risking that the drill will destroy his inner ear and possibly cause him an agonizing death. And then he ''cuts off his ear with a shard of glass'' to take the device off.]]
