** In the begining of the Seven Tusks arc, we were shown a bunch of mobsters who were running the tournament, and even had a guy gunned down in cold blood to be replaced by someone else, but after the Todou reveal, they are never shown again.
** Later during that same arc we have Wan Taaren show up at the Shinken Temple, it's revealed Todou is forcing the Temple to participate in the fight by holding the wife of the Head of the Temple (and Wan Taaren's old unrequited love interest) hostage. Wan Taaren swears to save her "even if it costs his life" but she is never seen, heard from or even mentioned again after this point.

* AntagonistInMourning: In ''Akatsuki!! Otokojuku'', Toudou Hyouei shows up to Edajima's [[spoiler:fake]] funeral, and although he takes the opportunity to gloat that since he still lives he's the winner of their decades-long conflict, he does still appear genuinely sad at the loss of his greatest enemy.

Played completely straight exactly once - [[spoiler:Gekkou really does get killed in the final round of the Great Heaven-Challenging Tournament, and comes back (although brainwashed) in the third round of the Seven Tusks.]]

Edajima asks him to recite the only textbook of Otokojuku, mentioning that the real Date would have it memorized. When Date does so successfully, Edajima calls him out for being a fake, since the real Date didn't study with books.

* CutShort: The Tusks arc was supposed to be composed of Seven Tusks; the Fifth isn't even finished, [[spoiler:as Edajima rescues himself and comes to get his students, therefore annulling the point of this arc]]. Then we get the very last arc, the Fuun Rakanjuku arc, which consists of five matches and can't even conclude four of them. This arc lasted 10 chapters. One can assume the manga was dropping in popularity and simply got cancelled. This ''is'' ''Magazine/ShonenJump'' after all.

The Tusks arc penultimate arc, the Seven Tusks, might be the most glorious example of invoking this trope ever put to paper. In short: Edajima gets captured, and is imprisoned in a satellite in orbit around Earth. To get him back, the Otokojuku team has to collect seven floppy disks by going through seven "battlegrounds", the Tusks. They proceed through the first four, losing [[spoiler:Akashi Gouji (though ''Akatsuki!! Otokojuku'' shows that he survived)]] at the< end of the fourth. Then [[spoiler:Toudou Hyouei]] shows up and splits the team into three, each one supposed to take on one of the remaining tusks. The group headed by Momo travels to Bugen Castle, where they're supposed to fight four opponents. Momo defeats the first one, though not before [[spoiler:Gobarski]] gets killed. They are attacked by the next opponent, a ninja who can disguise himself as anyone... [[spoiler:and then the castle is destroyed [[DidntSeeThatComing entirely out of nowhere.]] While Otokojuku was fighting, Edajima had actually managed to ''rescue himself'' from his space prison, by ''breaking out'' of the satellite and boarding an American space shuttle that happened to pass by and go with them to Earth. Then he gathered all of Otokojuku's instructors and students, including those who were supposed to be composed of Seven Tusks; fighting in the Fifth isn't even finished, [[spoiler:as Edajima rescues himself other tusks and comes the Four Lords, and traveled to get Bugen Castle with a bunch of wrecking ball cranes, demolishing the whole thing and getting his students, therefore students back himself, thereby completely annulling the point of this arc]]. the whole arc.]]

Then we get in the very last arc, final volume came the Fuun Fu'un Rakanjuku arc, which where Otokojuku and Rakanjuku were supposed to compete in a series of five matches. [[spoiler:Then the fourth match, between Momo and the Rakanjuku main representative, consists of five matches stealing crests from local Yakuza gangs. The gang that the Rakanjuku representative heads to believe he is from the other gang, so they capture him and can't even call the other gang about it, which leads to Momo going to rescue him, with all of Otokojuku and Rankanjuku showing up as backup. Edajima and Kumada, the Rakanjuku principal, conclude four of them. that there's no longer any point in finishing the competition, as the final match was meant to be about team spirit, and both sides had already joined together as one with the same goal.]] This arc lasted 10 chapters.

* UnskilledButStrong: Toramaru is this more than anything else. While he does pull some tricks, his "Fierce Tiger" style is entirely invented by himself, and he's essentially the ''only'' fighter in the entire series without ''any'' kind of gimmicks, relying on brute strength before anything else.

** In a sense, for most of their fights, this also applies to the protagonists in general when compared to their opponents. First Momo, Togashi, J and Toramaru in the Four Great Trials of Terror, then when they're joined by Date and the Three Fists in the Great Trembling Conquest, and then all of Otokojuku in the Heaven-Challenging Tournament. Usually, their opponents are presented as much stronger, with better training, and should logically be outclassing them. It's even brought up when they are about to fight Gandhara in the preliminaries of the tournament - Otokojuku has already suffered two casualties and most of the rest of the team is pretty beat up, whereas the Gandhara team doesn't even have a scratch. But Otokojuku still powers through everything and pull out a lot of their wins from their unparalleled sheer tenacity, guts and ''never staying down'', no matter how much of a beating they take. Date Omito is the shining exception even in the Great Trembling Conquest, probably being the best fighter on the Otokojuku team - often having more conclusive victories than even Momo. In addition to the Otokojuku tenacity, of course.

* CantCatchUp: Togashi and Toramaru. After starting out as half of Otokojuku's main fighting force alongside Momo and J, and Togashi even pulling out a win against Senkuu, as more new fighters get added to their roster, they're pretty much left in the dust once the Heaven-Challenging Tournament comes around. Each of them only gets one solo fight in the tournament, plus one two-on-two fight with both of them and Toramaru getting to be Manjimaru's partner in another two-on-two fight (where he didn't get to do a lot). Even in the Great Trembling Conquest, Toramaru didn't do a lot in his tag team fight - but with Date Omito as your partner, that might be expected. Even if Toramaru usually was the one to finish off the second opponent alone in his tag team fights with Togashi, given Togashi's tendency to "die" while taking out the first one, Toramaru really only has two solo fights in the whole series - against Gekkou and Kyrgyz Khan, over 20 volumes apart. Several characters get more than that in a single volume.

Miyashita later returned to the world of Otokojuku in a number of other mangas, the two main ones being ''Akatsuki!! Otojokuku'', which takes place a number of years after the original series and features a new generation of Otokojuku students, including a few children of the original cast; and ''Peerless: The Legend of Edajima Heihachi'', a prequel which tells the story of Edajima's childhood, education and other experiences, featuring many of the parents of later Otokojuku students.

** J's "You are not my match." Spoken in English.
* ChokepointGeography: [[InvokedTrope Invoked]] with Meiou Island, having been shaped into a tournament bracket for the Great Heaven-Challenging Tournament.
** That said, the geography of it makes little actual sense when considering how the Otokojuku team advance through it. The establishing shot makes it clear how it's ''supposed'' to work - the teams meet at the arenas in the three-way junctions, fight it out, and the winner advances to the next tier of the bracket. But the supposed third path leading "upwards" doesn't seem to actually exist at any of the arenas, so it's not entirely clear where they're actually going when they advance through the bracket.



** J vs. the Genseki-Ryuu 16.



** For non-Otokojuku-aligned fighters, Shuten Douji of Wolf Skull Castle vs. the Bandou-Ryuu 16 Horsemen, and Achilles of the Olympus Fighting Gods vs. their opponents before Otokojuku.



** ''Akatsuki!! Otokojuku'' muddles things a bit by having [[spoiler:Dokugantetsu, Gobarski, Dino and Gouji]] show up 20 years later, although the first three only appear in a chapter announcing the release of the live-action Otokojuku movie and could thus be considered of dubious canonicity. [[spoiler:Akashi Gouji]] can definitely , not in the least due to his son - who is clearly less than 20 years old - being a primary character.

** Baron Dino is perhaps the most jarring example, as most characters who show off something new does it as an extension of their established style. Not so for Dino - partway through the Great Heaven-Challenging Tournament, he switches to "Hell's Magician" style, using a deck of cards, misdirection and sleight of hand - which doesn't have ''any'' resemblance to the way he fought prior to that.

* DefeatMeansFriendship: Fighting being what creates true bonds between men is a recurring theme.
** This trope became abused as hell by Miyashita. For example, fan favourites like Hien or Raiden weren't even part of the school till after the end of the first tournament. It became so bad that the group selected for tournament fights assimilated all of the opponents faced in the previous tournaments (even if they supposedly fell into acid that we saw was, in fact, real acid). This lead to the third tournament starting out with a 16 on 16 team match setup, to incorporate all these characters. And of course one of them, Dokugantetsu, dies immediately and rather unceremoniously, with the author only adding in reasons why we should care about the guy in an exposition dump from Edajima, seeing how we never saw this supposed "kindness" he was said to posses.

theme. The earliest example in the manga is Akashi Gouji, who after his duel with Momo starts advising and assisting him (even if it's in the Otokojuku way), and the anime goes one further by not even having Momo and Togashi be friends at first. After the Great Trembling Conquest, all of Otokojuku's fighters are on friendly terms with each other.

** Less so in ''Akatasuki!! Otokojuku'', as while it's clear some characters are the children of others, they don't look like carbon copies. Kiyomoto Atsushi looks ''very'' similar to J... but [[AvertedTrope they're not related]].



** In the Seven Tusks arc we finaly get to that one exception mentioned above. In chapter 288 out of 313. Which wouldn't be so bad except the person in question, Jinshou, is a completley non-feminine looking person who is revealed to be a woman at the end of the fight.

And then Date, her opponent, tells her how no matter how hard she trains, she is still a woman, to not chose the "way of the fist" after being reborn because it's not the way of a woman. Naturally, she does the logical thing and kills herself. So yeah, the only female fighter in this whole series is an extremely mannish looking person who dies immediately after the reveal is made, and is talked down to for not having a penis and yet daring to fight by the good guys.

* RecycledPlot: Oi. Miyashita ''loved'' recycling concepts, sometimes with small changes, sometimes to the point of plagiarising himself. A few examples:
** The Straight March from the first chapter of ''Sakigake!! Otokojuku'' is retooled into the Straight Dash in ''Akatsuki!! Otokojuku''.
** The Spirit Cannonballs from the Four Great Trials of Terror show up again (and chronologically earlier) in ''Date Omito Gaiden'', in a challenge that's also suspiciously similar to The Gret Trembling Conquest of the Unified Eight, featuring the Life-Entrusing Stone with 2-on-2 battles.
** The Four Great Trials of Terror themselves become the Thee Great Trials of Terror in ''Akatsuki!! Otokojuku'', with Shura, Fuukai and Rinkai returning... but Miyashita put it on the [[SeriesContinuityError wrong mountain]].
** In ''The Legend of Edajima Heihachi'', Toramaru's father was sentenced to holding up the ceiling in a prison, just like Toramaru. When Edajima breaks him and several other prisoners out of the prison, they do so by way of a 1000-man bridge, like the first-years did in ''Sakigake!! Otokojoku''.

Otokojuku'' as coming from that he used to have a more aggressive twin brother, but when both were near-fatally wounded in an accident the doctors managed to save one of them by using parts of them both, and his brother's mind still [[SharingABody lives inside him]]. It should perhaps be mentioned that his father shows up in ''The Legend of Edajima Heihachi'' and has the Face Reversal as well, so it might in part be hereditary, too.
