* ATasteOfTheirOwnMedicine: The 10th volume was essentially about Kanako repeatedly subjecting the girls to this for constantly abusing Keitaro.

* AllMenArePerverts: All the girls except [[GoodIsNotDumb Mutsumi]] seem to believe in this trope – [[CharacterDevelopment at first, at least]] – and use it to justify their abuse of Keitaro ([[{{Tsundere}} Naru]] and [[DoesNotLikeMen Motoko]] deserve particular mention). {{Averted|Trope}}, most of the time anyway.

* AlliterativeName: A weird example with Naru, whose surname is Narusegawa.

* AnimalsHateHim: Ken Akamatsu seems to get a kick out of this – if one character is particularly depressed and runs away, they're likely to end up getting bitten in the ass by a dog when they try to pet it. This gag is used TWICE in volume 9.

* CryCute: Aunt Haruka, Naru Narusegawa, and Motoko Aoyama. Kanako does this occasionally, when Keitaro can't remember his promise to her.

* CuteMute: Subverted: Nyamo doesn't speak Japanese, so she mostly opts to stay quiet.



* IncrediblyLamePun

to:

* IncrediblyLamePunIncrediblyLamePun: Sure, it only works when we're not using the Tokyo U expression from the translations, but the abbreviation from the Japanese original, but it's still pointed out (and {{lampshaded|trope}} when Naru reacts with "that's not funny!").



** Virtually all of the girls towards the end of the manga do this towards Keitaro, so he can get together with Naru.

** Defied by Keitaro; he can see through it easily.
** Shinobu in the manga was able to tell that "Naru" was "not herself" when smiling, even though the smile was visually perfect.

* TrainStationGoodbye: Done in an airport between Naru and Keitaro, when he was about to leave for USA with Seta. It's one of the most emotionally powerful moments in the series.



* WouldntHitAGirl: He almost gave Sarah a spanking in the manga when he was getting sick of her antics, claiming she "had it coming" – too bad he tried to do it IN PUBLIC and all Sarah had to do was scream loud enough to make him chicken out.

-->'''Kanako:''' Why do only I have to get this treatment?! This isn't fair!



* YouKnowWhatYouDid: The problem is that Keitaro ''doesn't'' always know. Sometimes he didn't do anything.

* TheDiaperChange: At one point in the manga, Mutsumi appears to have lost her memory and begins acting like she did as a child. Keitaro and Naru play along to help her revert back to a more adult state, which leads to Mutsumi forcefully diapering Naru.

* ReedRichardsIsUseless: You'd think with her incredible knack for gadgets and electronics that Suu could be making a fortune… unless… [[FridgeBrilliance so THAT'S how she gets all those]] [[TrademarkFavoriteFood bananas!]]

* HarshWordImpact: Very heavy use of this in the manga, especially metaphorical knives.

* GeniusDitz: Mutsumi. Both Naru and Keitaro are shocked that she gets perfect scores and wonder how she failed the exam as many times as he did. [[spoiler:She either forgot to write her own name, or got lost on the way to the examination place.]]

* FirstGirlWins: Played with. [[spoiler:Naru is the first girl we the audience meet, but Mutsumi was the first girl Keitaro met chronologically. Ultimately it ends up being Naru.]]

* ForegoneConclusion: Despite all of the noteworthy action between Keitaro and Mutsumi, it's ridiculously evident that Naru will end up with him. By the final three volumes, there's literally no hope for the other girls.
