* OldFashionedRowBoatDate: Keitaro and Mushumi ended up in one (supposedly), and it was ''definitely'' perceived that way by Naru, who snatched a boat of her own, and turned the whole thing into a hilarious row boat chase instead.

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



* DoubleStandardAbuseFemaleOnMale: If anything turns you off of this series, it will be this. Had any of the genders been reversed... they'd ''quickly'' be arrested. The anime has it somewhat less frequently, but gets correspondingly more violent when it does happen. Kanako does call them on it very late in the manga, subjecting the worst offenders to almost a volume's worth of HumiliationConga.

* ShoutOut:
** As Keitaro's having a HeroicBSOD:
--->'''Naru:''' Hey, who told you to go all [[Anime/NeonGenesisEvangelion Shinji]] on me?
** Keitaro also jokes with Motoko about having Su find them an [=EVA=] to fight Tsuruko.
** There are also a lot of ''Film/StarWars'' references, Seta's van has a license plate reading "[=R2D2=]", and Naru gets stabbed by a lightsaber at one point.
** A subversion of sorts – In the final episode of ''Love Hina Again'', Keitaro falls down through the ruins of a haunted building holding the engagement ring he was going to give to [[spoiler:Naru]]. His pose, and the fact that he's holding a ring, are immediately reminiscent of [[Film/TheLordOfTheRings Gollum falling into the Mount Doom crater]].
** The "Mecha Tama 3" from the ''Love Hina Spring Special'' looks like a turtle. It also looks like [[Series/{{Thunderbirds}} Thunderbird 2]].
** Also, ''Franchise/FinalFantasy'' shows up every once in a while. Such as: some of Mutsumi's costumes being based on Aerith of ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyVII'' fame, a Cactuar on a shelf (next to [[Franchise/StarTrek a starship]]) while looking for a job; in Volume 3, page 37, frame 6, you can see [[VideoGame/FinalFantasyVIII Squall and Rinoa]] sweat-drop at Naru and Keitaro crashing into a shelf of plushies; and in Volume 13, Keitaro mentions copying Motoko's Boulder Cutting Blade as being like "[[VideoGame/FinalFantasyX Kimahri]]'s Lancet ability."
*** There's also a minor reference to ''VideoGame/ChronoCross'' during Kanako's advertisement parade, where Suu is dressed as Harle.
** The Pararakelse chapter where Motoko, Shinobu, Sû and co. discover through the latter's radar that they're surrounded by giant turtles, and then are chased by those, with team member rescue sequence and flight with the help of a transporting machine to boot, is a clear ''Film/{{Aliens}}'' reference.
** Su's Turtle radar is a reference, to the ''Manga/DragonBall'' series, as it looks just like the dragon radar. Keitaro even jokes about the possibility of getting sued.
** Franchise/{{Godzilla}} series reference in the anime – In the RPG dream there are two tiny twin Mutsumis who sing to call out a giant Tama in the same way the twins who sing to call Mothra from the Godzilla and its spinoff films.
*** May also count as a reference to Franchise/{{Gamera}}, who is a genuine flying turtle Kaiju!
** In Su's room there is a UsefulNotes/{{Sega Dreamcast}}.
*** It's shown in the manga that she also has a UsefulNotes/{{Nintendo 64}}.
** [[Manga/AILoveYou Ma-kun]] gets a cameo appearance on the cover of chapter 71.
** During the festival in Chapter 118, Shinobu has a fan with [[Manga/AzumangaDaioh Chiyo's father]] on it.
** The manga chapter where [[spoiler:Naru finally confesses she's in love with Keitaro]] with a screamed confession and a tasty deep kiss is called ''[[Music/{{U2}} Hold Me, Thrill Me, Kiss Me]]'' (the "Kill Me" part omitted, which is strange considering this is Love Hina).
** In the first episode of ''Love Hina Again'', Naru is seen sweeping the path in front of the dorm with a wicker broom and apron that are suspiciously similar to those often sported by Kyoko Otonashi in ''Manga/MaisonIkkoku''.

* MegatonPunch: Naru Punch!
** Taken to extremes in the anime. Keitaro receives several per episode, and a lot of times it seems any answer he gives Naru results in one of these. Fortunately he's [[IronButtMonkey pretty durable]].
* MetaGuy: Kanako.
* MomentKiller: Someone should count all the times this happens.
** If you try to make a drinking game out of it, you'll probably be dead before the end.

* DroppedGlasses: Used to good effect in Love Hina, with fumbling for his glasses getting Keitaro another MegatonPunch in one episode, and in another leading to both he and Naru (both BlindWithoutEm) having a great time on a date, without realizing they were with each other.

** Naru also finds herself on the receiving end of this in the third quarter of the series when having to deal with Keitaro's half-sister and is subjected to the torture she put Keitaro through in the first half (specificlly trying to drive him out by overworking him when the girls initially didn't like him). Naru even wails out an apology for doing so (and rightly so; she did it out of anger for an out-of-context comment from Keitaro). Worth pointing out that Kanako succeeds in driving all the girls but Naru out using this method (though [[{{Snapback}} everybody returns just a few pages later]]).
