* FreakyFridayFlip: The Living Souls Exchange skill of the Shinmei-ryu. This sword-based spiritual technique is intended to temporarily transfer the soul of a possessed person and the intruding spirit into a willing host's body in order to be exorcised in cases where their original body is too physically weak to endure the procedure. In the second TieInNovel, Motoko tried to perform the technique in front of her sister Tsuruko, but she ended up switching bodies with [[spoiler:Kitsune]] of all people by mistake, kickstarting the plot of that side-story.

* EatTheDog: Well, not a ''dog'', but Su wants to do this to Tama. She only ends up refraining herself when she rationalizes it would be better to wait for Tama to reproduce.

* NerdGlasses: Keitaro and Naru both have them, although Naru only wears hers when studying. Invoked by Shinobu as part of her attempt to become more like Naru.

** The Youto Hina appears again in ''Manga/MahouSenseiNegima''!. In Setsuna flashbacks recognizing it at Tsukuyomi's hands, Tsuruko says this. "This is the magic sword passed down in the East. Youto ‘Hina’. Today, this was lent to us by the East as a lesson." East or Kanto is where Hinata is at.

Made worse in that he routinely loses money to the {{Pretty Freeloader}}s' hijinks (once Kitsune even gets him fired from a restaurant because she didn't want to pay the bill, and Keitaro didn't even have time to dig himself out of it).

** The idea is that ''everything'' is possible if you try your hardest, even getting into Japan's top university and charming a really hot girl, even though you're a total loser. However, while Keitaro does start off as a really pathetic individual, it does not take long before he turns out to not only be [[BeautifulAllAlong handsome]] but also a gifted archeologist and martial artist. You'd ''expect'' someone who is not really cool or talented to captivate through {{determinat|or}}ion and [[{{Adorkable}} charm]]. While Keitaro is very determined, his defeatist, whiny and relatively immature personality, as well as his tremendous clumsiness deeply annoy the girls... It's only when he drops his usual act that the females show ''any attraction'' for him, often pointing out that he is very handsome when he is not being annoying. Ultimately, instead of ''Manga/LoveHina'' being about an underdog accomplishing goals far beyond his reach through {{determinat|or}}ion and ThePowerOfLove, it's actually a

** Alternatively the Aesop could be "if someone berates, insults, hits, and abuses you, keep attempting to date that person. You'll find true love in the end."
