** Come the later chapters after their introduction, [[spoiler: Usui's classmates at Miyabigaoka (save for Koganei, who at the moment was suffering offscreen from a slow case of SanitySlippage) extend their assistance to Misaki, in order to prepare her for her trip to Britain.

* {{Tsundere}}: Misaki is very much a discipline sub-class, thanks to her status as StudentCouncilPresident; although there are traces of the tragic past sub-class in her as well (her justification for being abrasive against men due to her father leaving their family). [[LampshadeHanging Heavily lampshaded]] by the owner of Maid Latte in one chapter. She starts off as distinctly Type A (violent approach), but has mellowed a bit into a Type B over the course of the series.

* GratuitousEnglish: Usui speaks fluent English. He doesn't use it much, but does break it out at their class's school festival cafe, and it's apparently cool enough that everyone in the room (and even ''the hallway outside'') is instantly charmed.

Added DiffLines:

* AmazonChaser: Misaki is a [[DudeMagnet magnet]] for these. Many of the guys who fall for her (such as Usui and Tora Igarashi) do so because of her strength and determination.

Added DiffLines:

* MediumAwareness: At least in the anime, characters have a somewhat partial awareness of things like thought bubbles, visual representations, and the like. For example, when Usui and Hinata are looking at each other, with visible/audible symbolism of two rival dogs growling threateningly:
-->"Is it just my imagination, or are there are ''dogs'' in here?"
