* RunningGag: When the AmusingInjuries go to the ''extreme'' (the first time being when he is thrown off of a terrifying and rocky cliff, only half played for comedy), GenreSavvy characters start remarking that Keitaro is {{immortal}}. After this turning point, the joke is used here and there throughout the rest of the series, usually in an offhand way.

* TheChewToy: Seriously, how much can the universe involuntarily conspire against Keitaro? Highlight to the Tokyo U entrance ceremony chapter.



* DrivenToSuicide: Played for laughs every time Motoko suffers a severe setback (e.g. the {{Barehanded Blade Block}}s mentioned above); she suddenly and over-dramatically threatens to commit seppuku, JidaiGeki style.

* CuteAndPsycho: Motoko's older sister Tsuruko is usually calm and graceful, but when Motoko makes the mistake of... erm... being creative with the truth in front of her, out comes her AxCrazy side (complete with daemon eyes). Because of this and her ImplausibleFencingPowers, Motoko goes back and forth between [[{{Oneesama}} admiring her]] and being scared shitless of her.

* FollowTheLeader: [[WordOfGod Akamatsu]] admitted he was inspired by {{dating sim}}s when writing ''Love Hina'' – his main influence was clearly the ''VisualNovel/TokimekiMemorial'' series. Naru being an obvious {{Expy}} of [[TheAce Shi]][[CannotSpitItOut ori]] [[WellExcuseMePrincess Fuji]][[HeroesWantRedHeads saki]]? Check. The legend of getting happiness in couple by entering Todai? Clearly inspired from ''[[PortmanteauSeriesNickname Tokimemo 1]]'''s [[WorldTree Legend of the Tree]]. The crazy atmosphere and mood and wacky characters? Reminiscent of ''Tokimeki Memorial 2''.
** Perhaps it's no coincidence that several voice actors in the ''Love Hina'' anime [[HeyItsThatVoice have prior exprience]] in dating sims. To wit:
*** Keitaro is [[Creator/YujiUeda Yoshio Saotome]] of ''Tokimeki Memorial 1''
*** Mitsune/Kitsune is [[Creator/JunkoNoda Hikari Hinomoto]] of ''Tokimeki Memorial 2''
*** Naru is [[Creator/YuiHorie Kotori Shirakawa]] of ''VisualNovel/DaCapo'' and [[RobotGirl Multi]] of ''ToHeart''

* StoppedReadingTooSoon: In ''Love Hina Christmas Special: Silent Eve'', Su and Sara find Naru's letter to Kintaro and only bother to read one word in the middle of the page (love) before jumping to conclusions, setting off the whole IdiotPlot.

* SandBridgeAtLowTide: In the FestivalEpisode, Sarah and Su strand themselves on an island, where they are soon joined by a "shipwrecked" Kitsune. After a night of worrying how to get themselves rescued, help comes to them across a bridge of sand revealed by the tide.
** The same happened in the BeachEpisode, but to Naru, Keitaro, and Sarah. They spend the day on the island, until nightfall, when the tide lowers and they're able to walk across and make their way home.

* ArrangedMarriage: Motoko is "threatened" with this to Keitaro should she lose to her sister in a fight in episode 25. [[ClingyJealousGirl Naru]] of course, isn't too happy to hear about that.

* CelebrityIsOverrated: Naru becomes a singer in episode 11, but quickly learns to despise it, even going so far as to jump into the hot tub that Keitaro is using in order to hide from her manager.
** Of course seeing as her manager was JerkAss Kentaro that would explain why she was having problems.

Added DiffLines:

* {{Seppuku}}: At one point Motoko offers to help with the ritualized suicides of the {{Ronin}} who have not managed to get into Tokyo University. And after a failed attempt at femininity, she misinterprets one of Keitaro's comments as suggesting that she kill herself, and she asks Su to be her second. Thankfully she soon reverts to her normal self.
** [[SuicideAsComedy Something that makes]] [[GallowsHumor this dramatic scene hilarious]] is that Motoko is holding a sharpened knife near her abdomen: a "proper" woman would commit suicide by cutting open her jugular, as stated in the paragraphs above... so if she actually went through with it, [[FemininityFailure she would've failed at femininity]] ''[[FemininityFailure again]]''.
