* CuteButCacophonic: Quite a number of the karaoke endings featuring Konata, but the mauling of the DragonBallZ theme suffers at her hands in the ending to Episode 5 is a ''particularly'' illustrative example.

* CaptainErsatz: Tsukasa is arguably an [[CaptainErsatz ersatz]] of Akari Kamigishi from ''VisualNovel/ToHeart'', which is Lampshaded when Konata gives her Akari's school uniform in episode 4. Another similarity is that between Hiiragi twins and Rin and Sakura from ''VisualNovel/FateStayNight'' (lampshaded by Konata's father in episode 10, and by Kagami briefly cosplaying as Rin in the OVA). A further possible example is the similarity of Kagami and Tsukasa to that of Kyou and Ryou, respectively, from ''VisualNovel/{{Clannad}}'', even including the purple hair. Hell, they practically ARE the same. {{Tsundere}} protective, long-haired big sister, and calmer, AlwaysSecondBest, short-haired, little sister. These [[http://img3.ak.crunchyroll.com/i/spire1/e2c9ce95528435d8d857e73830d2e8171230600954_full.jpg pictures]] [[http://i27.tinypic.com/2qvt5pt.jpg testify]]

* InexplicablyIdenticalIndividuals: Voice of the cake restaurant waitress/Comiket vendor/Kyoto tour guide/etc. Sounds odd and a bit unnerving that all these people would have the same husky middle-aged woman's voice. You might recognize that voice as [[{{Naruto}} Orochimaru]]'s seiyuu, Creator/{{Kujira}}. The dub does one better by having most of them be voiced by a male, though it isn't SteveBlum... but Creator/DerekStephenPrince, who does Shino. And even better: at one point, you see ''six'' of the very same middle-aged woman at once!

Creator/KyotoAnimation used the manga as the basis for a highly successful {{anime}} series, which got acquired for American distribution by Creator/BandaiEntertainment, and dubbed with around the same casting as ''[[LightNovel/HaruhiSuzumiya Haruhi]]''... or some of the in-jokes would not be translatable at all. Most of the {{Otaku}} references were in fact KyoAni's own additions (the original manga was mainly a by-the-book SliceOfLife), in order to cash in on the merchandising of anime in general, mainly from ''Haruhi''. It worked; ''Lucky Star'' is currently the studio's most marketable show, with many [=CDs=] and video games being made even 3 years after the anime ended. A stage musical adaptation has been green-lit in 2011.

* {{Fanservice}}: The series is very well known for its sheer abundance of the nonsexual variety. However, there have been complaints that too much of it revolves around KyoAni and their associates. The other variety shows up occasionally, but even the requisite FuroScene is rather clean.

** InnocentInnuendo: Uke is actually the common martial arts term for the defender in sparing. It's use in {{yaoi}} is much more obscure and noticing the innuendo is more revealing then just ignoring it.

** This is even FURTHER [[LampshadeHanging lampshaded]] in Ep. 16 when, stopping by a bookstore in Akihabara to buy some {{manga}} for Konata, several {{otaku}} start taking pictures of her, forcing her to say, "I'm not Kamigishi." One even asks her to say "Hiroyuki-chan" to further [[FetishFuel fuel]] the whole thing. Also, Konata attempts to give Kagami the nickname [[VisualNovel/{{Clannad}} Kyou]].

* OlderThanTheyLook: PuniPlush made every teen and adult to fall in this except [[{{Lolicon}} Soujiro]]. And the extreme cases of this fell on the women around Soujiro: his late wife Kanata was 1.43m, his 17-18 year-old daughter Konata is 1.42m, and his live-in niece Yutaka is 1.38m. Konata wondered if Soujiro has a case of {{Lolicon}}, and knew she and Yutaka would certainly be FetishFuel for other lolicon.
