* HeroKiller: Aomine and Akashi both fit this trope for different reasons... at least, as much as possible, given that this is a sports anime. Aomine, because he's just so much more powerful than literally everyone else. [[spoiler:He annihilates Seirin by double their score during his first match with them, then slaughters Kise and Kaijou, winning by twelve points despite being part of the same group as Kise, and Kise getting a huge boost in strength partway through the game. Even in defeat, it takes everything Seirin has, Kuroko using his trump card, and Kagami both activating the Zone and managing to master off-hand ball handling at the last second in order to win.]] Akashi, because his goal is to prove himself superior over everyone else, and he's more than capable of doing so. [[spoiler:Between destroying Midorima and Shutoku despite Midorima and Takao's CombinationAttack, and the insanity that was the Seirin v. Rakuzan final, Akashi is about as close as it gets to this trope in a sports anime.]]
** In addition to that, in Aomine's case, [[spoiler:he is the ONLY person to completely defeat Kagami and Kuroko while they're working together]]. Not even Akashi manages that.

** Hanamiya Makoto is TheAce for Kirisaki Dai-Ichi; he's of special note as the only one of the Uncrowned Kings who still functions as TheAce after the advent of the Generation of Miracles (with Kiyoshi surrendering that position to Kagami for Serin, and [[spoiler:the other three surrendering to Akashi as part of Rakuzan]]).

*** TheLeader: Hyuuga, the Captain and the cornerstone of Serin's outside.
*** TheLancer: Kiyoshi, despite not being the Vice-Captain, is this because of his strength, his status as the cornerstone of Serin's inside, and his backhanded but excellent advice. Borders on being a HypercompetentSidekick.

* {{Gonk}}: Kaijou's coach. Lampshaded during Kaijou's match against Touou that he attempts to dress sharply to match Touou's coach that looks like a host, but the Kaijou players all scream at him that it won't work. It doesn't, he got choked with the tight suit and tie instead. Then he reveals that IWasQuiteALooker [[http://vignette3.wikia.nocookie.net/kurokonobasuke/images/0/0c/Japanese_national_team.png/revision/latest?cb=20130805165024 when he was in Japan's National Team]] (he's the one in front of the others with V sign. In case you didn't recognize the others, from left to right is Rakuzan's coach, Shutoku's, Touou's, Riko's dad, and Yosen's )


Added DiffLines:

* RetiredBadass: Alex was a skillful player by herself, all the coaches with at least one Generation of Miracles member in their school all were members of Japan's national basketball team at a point with Riko's dad. And Nijimura.

*** This gets turned into a plot point in Extra Game Chapter 7. Turns out that Murasakibara knew his strength was so great, he could potentially hurt his teammates or opponents just by playing seriously, and so he consciously limited himself. [[spoiler:However, faced with [[TheJuggernaut Jason Silver]], who is even bigger and stronger than he is, Murasakibara takes off all the limits, which allows him to come close to him in strength. This gives him the advantage, as while Silver is still stronger than him, Murasakibara is more skillful because he trains exceptionally hard, whereas Silver refuses to even work out, let alone practice seriously.]]
