* EverythingsBetterWithPenguins: According to YOMI member Boris Ivanov's perception, Kenichi's animal motif is a penguin. That later [[{{Pokemon}} evolves]] into a hawk... penguin. Yeah.

* DarkIsNotEvil: Dou-Type martial artists, who fuel their abilities with rage and aggression, are more prone to be evil, but people who are gentle by nature, such as Apachai, Miu or Kisara, can avoid this.
** Sakaki is pretty much the most menacing and scary of the Masters but is also the most caring and protective when it comes to Kenichi: Shigure even calls him "Mother Hen" because of that.

* EvilMentor: Yami is an entire organization of these.
** Each member of Yami has[[spoiler:/had]] a single disciple who is[[spoiler:/was]] a YOMI member. Kensei-sama in particular seems to relish Evil Mentoring. He inspired Hermit to be a ruthless martial artist, molded Odin into a killing machine, and [[spoiler:has ''twice'' attempted to make Kenichi his disciple, and shows no signs of giving up]].

these. However, there are far more masters who ''don't'' mistreat their disciples in some way rather than the ones that do.

** Kisara needs a little more explanation. "Tae kwon do" ("kicking & punching arts") does emphasize kicks more than most hard martial arts, but it doesn't completely neglect punches and neither does Kisara entirely.

** [[spoiler:Kenichi utilizes the techniques of his masters to break Odin's guard. It's what the masters of the dojo are teaching to Kenichi. He is being taught Kempo, Aikido, Muay Thai, weapons usage... just remember that [[AlmightyJanitor he's just the apprentice.]]]]

Added DiffLines:

* DuelToTheDeath: This is what all Satsujinken fighters aim for, in one way or another.


Added DiffLines:

* ReligiousAndMythologicalThemeNaming: This series does this a lot! And it's clear the disciples love the mythological aliases.
** The top eight members of Ragnarok, a Norse themed delinquent gang all have names from said mythology, the names being Odin, Berserker, Freya, Loki, Siegfried, Hermit, Thor, and Valkyrie.
** Ethan and Rachel, members of Yomi are named after Greek figures, Pollux and Castor. Rimi, another Yomi member is called Atalanta, another Greek figure, and she was formerly a member of a group called the Titans.
** Lugh, another member of Yomi ''only'' goes by his codename, which is a character from Irish lore, and was formerly a member of a team called Mabinogion, which is a collection of Welsh literature.
** Hinduism figures are also present, with Sho Kano being known as Suparna, Radin Jihan called Nagaraja, and Tirawit Kokin as Narasimha.

* DeathIsCheap: Played with. Kenichi never kills his opponents, but briefly dies many times over due to his Masters' training (including right before his father visits the dojo). Fortunately, Ma Kensei is always ready with powerful mystical medicine.
** Actually, once a brief death happens to him not while training, but in a real fight. [[spoiler:Tirawit Koukin gave him a devastating blow to the chest, and not even his masters would arrive in time to save him if it weren't for Niijima giving him his special reanimation technique.]]

* DefeatByModesty: Almost never works. Too many women [[InnocentFanServiceGirl just don't care]]. [[AttentionWhore Rachel Castor]] openly subverts the trope.
** Subverted with Miu who, in spite of being the very embodiment of girlish modesty (and [[YamatoNadeshiko traditional Japanese politeness]]) in this manga, never gets upset about ClothingDamage until ''after'' the fight is over.
*** Does work on occasion though. Miu nearly loses a poolside fight when she almost loses her top (Kenichi ends up stepping in for her), and Renka unintentionally ends up turning it against Rachel (of all people) in their fight, getting away from her at a few points by accidentally removing her top and shorts.

* DefeatMeansFriendship: Pick a non-adult villain who was defeated by Kenichi or his adolescent allies. There is a greater than 75% chance that this will come into play.
** Played with a bit in that Kenichi and Miu often befriend their enemies before any sort of final fight or in some cases long after the final fight, as well as playing the trope straight.

** Some delinquents attempt this on [[TheDragon Tirawit]] [[VillainWithGoodPublicity Kokin]], who amazingly enough [[NotWorthKilling doesn't kill them]]. He just takes over all the school gangs--save for Shinpaku--and teaches them Muay Thai.

* TwiceShy: Dear Kenichi and Miu, stop blushing in silence and just go out with each other already! Signed, The Fans. [[labelnote:Spoiler alert]]They DO. Kenichi even tells Miu about the Elder allowing them to date (If he won D of D), at which point The Elder lays down some really strict ground rules.[[/labelnote]]
