* ImpossiblePickleJar: Kenichi's father Mototsugu attempts to open a pickle jar when his wife [[HotMom Saori]] muses that she can do the task herself. After much straining, Kenichi nonchalantly takes the jar from his dad, instantly opens it, and leaves, much to his father's bewilderment. This is Mototsugu's first clue that his son is beginning to come out of his shell and becoming a stronger, more self-confident person, [[PapaWolf although he initially gets the wrong idea about what's going on the Ryozanpaku dojo.]]

* GirlOnGirlIsHot: Whenever Renka and Rachel fight, one may end up with a nosebleed due to their habit of stripping each other as they fight.

* HelpingWouldBeKillstealing: This is one of the basic principles of teaching martial arts in ''KenichiTheMightiestDisciple'': it's repeatedly said that a martial arts mentor must not interfere in his/her disciple's fight with a non-master fighter, even when the disciple's life is in danger. However, mentors sometimes ''break'' a sparring (i.e., friendly) match when a disciple is in a serious danger. (It happens once to Takeda and once to Kenichi.)

* LoveDodecahedron: More of a Love Tessaract:
**[[TheHero Kenichi]] is [[SingleTargetSexuality only interested]] in [[ActionGirl Miu]]. It becomes apparent to the reader (but not Kenichi) relatively early on that Miu returns his feelings (even if she doesn't understand what she is feeling), but due to their situation his [[TrainingFromHell training]] takes vast precedence over progressing their relationship. Thus, they remain JustFriends, each developing a sort of UnwantedHarem of their own. On Kenichi's side we have [[GirlNextDoor Izumi]], [[AnimeChineseGirl Renka]], [[PerkyFemaleMinion Raichi]], and possibly [[HotForStudent Shigure]]. On Miu's side we have [[TragicVillain Kanō]], [[FriendlyRival Takeda]], and [[ShadowArchetype Ryūto]] (although that last is more in Rimi's imagination than anything else, see below).
** WordOfGod says Renka's attendant Ryū Genson (the dark-haired half of ThoseTwoGuys alongside the white-haired Shokatsu Kouan) has had a crush on her since they were children, forming a ''four stage unrequited love chain'' (at least during the series proper).
** [[ShamelessFanserviceGirl Rimi]] loves Ryūto and ''will tell anyone at the slightest provocation.'' A series of misunderstandings leads her to think he has a crush on Miu. Perhaps as a child he did-- readings of this vary-- but nowadays he just plays his cards close to his chest, and doesn't reveal (or perhaps doesn't realize) his feelings for Rimi until he fights [[spoiler:alongside]] Kenichi.
** The ultimate dodecahedron in the series centers on [[CantCatchUp Ukita]]. Ukita has a crush on [[KickChick Kisara]]. [[AmazonianBeauty Freya]] has a crush on Ukita. Simple LoveTriangle, right? But wait, there's more! Ukita believes that [[{{Bifauxnen}} Shiratori]] is a guy, and his rival for Kisara's affection. In fact, Shiratori also has a crush on Ukita, which is implied to be one of the reasons Kisara is reluctant to admit her feelings toward him. It's left ambiguous whether [[ChildProdigy Chikage's]] actions are a PrecociousCrush toward Ukita, or her treating him as a sort of surrogate big brother, but either way they elicit feelings of jealousy in the other girls. Furthermore, Freya [[PairTheSpares ends up paired with]] Takeda in the DistantFinale, tying the "Ukitangle" in with the main dodecahedron.



* LoveTriangle:
** Kenichi, Miu, and various characters. Most obviously, when Renka tricks Kenichi into taking her out to a pool, the chapter is called [[http://www.mangafox.com/manga/history_s_strongest_disciple_kenichi/v11/c095/ Triangle Relationship]].
** This seems to be going on with Ukita, Freya and Kisara: Ukita has a crush on Kisara (which she knows about), Freya likes Ukita (which he doesn't know about yet), and Kisara's actions around Ukita are somewhat suspect.
*** Miu [[http://www.mangafox.com/manga/history_s_strongest_disciple_kenichi/v41/c380/11.html notes this]] [[LampshadeHanging by name]] when Freya goes around giving gifts to Kenichi and Ukita. [[http://www.mangafox.com/manga/history_s_strongest_disciple_kenichi/c380/10.html Ukita's has a ribbon on it.]]
*** Shiratori later seems to be part of it, too, [[http://www.mangareader.net/historys-strongest-disciple-kenichi/489/15 though not as you might think]].
** Kano and Takeda also end up in love triangles with Miu and Kenichi.

-->'''Thug:''' We're looking for a girl who looks just like you. Except she's taller, and her [[HairColors hair]] and [[CommonEyeColors eyes]] are different, and she's not so scrawny.

** Within the context of the story, it actually makes quite a bit of sense why most if not all BlookKnight characters in this series are as such. It's because they have "Dou" Ki, which fuels their strength by channeling their ki by having it "explode" throughout their body, encouraging Blood Knight/Berserker tendencies. The biggest difference between the Heroic and Villainous versions of this trope is that characters like Miu and Sakaki (hero-type characters) possess tremendous kindness and a desire to help/protect others, qualities that tether them from going completely over to the dark side.
