* ForegoneConclusion: Essentially the point of ''Peerless: The Legend of Edajima Heihachi''. No matter how overpowered Edajima Heihachi is, the fact remains that Japan will lose World War II, and [[spoiler:he will end up single, which means something is going to happen to Sakko, sooner or later.]] ** Of course theres also historical events such as the fact that Hiroshima will be bombed by 6th of August.

Added DiffLines:
* StoryBreakerPower: Edajima Heihachi himself in the prequel. He's by far the strongest person in the world, both physically and interllectually, on top of having a ridiculous amount of luck. As a result, Edajima is far ahead of everyone else and is very much in control of the direction that World War II is taking in the story.

* TankGoodness: Edajima has a tank from the war locked away in a storehouse on the Otokojuku campus. He brings it out to attack the Rakkyo cheering squad when they take Oni-hige, Tazawa, Matsuo and Hidemaro hostage. ** Later in ''Akatsuki!! Otokojuku'', Kurosu Nobunaga uses a tank, presumably the same one as it was said it was one stored at Otokojuku, to attack an American army base.

* BackFromTheDead:

** J's Spiral Hurricane Punch.

** Wang Taaren vs. Chishou.

* ExcitedTitleTwoPartEpisodeName: Most if not all of the anime episodes.

* FakingTheDead: [[spoiler:After being ordered by Edajima to do it, Eikei "dies" in the prelimiharies of the Heaven-Challenging Tournament so he can assist the team and save some of their lives while hidden.]]

* IdiosyncraticEpisodeNaming and ExcitedShowTitle: In ''The Legend of Edajima Heihachi'' and ''Akatsuki!! Otokojuku'', every chapter is named either ''This is ___!!'', ''These are ___!!'', ''I am ___!!'' or ''We are ___!!''.

* LanternJawOfJustice: Edajima had a pretty normal-sized jawline in the original manga, but by the time of ''Akatsuki!! Otokojuku'', his chin has grown quite a few sizes.

* LanternJawOfJustice: Edajima had a well-defined but pretty normal-sized jawline in the original manga, but by the time of ''Akatsuki!! Otokojuku'', his chin has had grown quite a few sizes.

* LanternJawOfJustice: Edajima had a pretty normal-sized jawline in ** The Otokojuku team for the original manga, but Seven Tusks, when they were joined by several former opponents from the time of Heaven-Challenging Tournament. ** Even more so in ''Akatsuki!! Otokojuku'', his chin has grown quite a few sizes.when many of those they had formerly competed against in the Man Cup join up with them. Even if they do end up enrolling in Otokojuku, it's somewhat more justified here, as they originally teamed up due to running into each other when they were all going after the same target.

* LanternJawOfJustice: Edajima had a pretty normal-sized jawline in the original manga, but by the time of ''Akatsuki!! Otokojuku'', his chin has grown OnlyKnownByTheirNickname: For quite a few sizes.while, J. It's halfway through the manga we learn that his real name is [[spoiler:King Battler Junior]].

* LanternJawOfJustice: Edajima had a pretty normal-sized jawline in RecapEpisode: The final episode of the original manga, but by anime basically consisted of a recap of the time of ''Akatsuki!! Otokojuku'', his chin has grown quite a few sizes.prior 33 episodes.

* RetCon: When Eikei first uses his poison fist, it's as a final move by pouring a deadly poison on his hand, which is supposed to slowly kill him as well. Byt the time his first fight in the Heaven-Challenging Tournament comes around, it's become his primary fighting style, and is now explained to come from sticking your hand into a pot full of poisonous substances, plants and insects over the course of a long time.

* SeriesContinuityError: There's several references to Otokojuku having a 300 year long history, with students having been sent to fight in World War II. But in the final arc and later in ''Akatsuki!! Otokojuku'', it's said that Edajima founded it, even giving the number of 13 years ago in the final volume of the original manga. Gets weird when you remember that the Four Great Trials of Terror were supposed to be Otokojuku's greatest specialty, and Edajima himself was the only one who had survived it, 50 years prior.

Otokojuku'' it was established that Togashi enrolled in Otokojuku to find out the truth about his older brother's death.

** Michele (that's a guy, by the way) looks way too much like [[RoseOfVersailles Lady Oscar]] to be a coincidence. And he's French to boot. Toramaru and Togashi even mock him, saying "He looks like he came out straight of a Shoujo manga!".

* 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'' ''ShonenJump'' after all.

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.

* BluffTheImpostor: Twice. ** First in the Seven Tusks arc of the original manga, when a ninja appears who can impersonate anyone. He first appears impersonating Toramaru, so Momo asks them to recite the three instructions of Otokojuku. Only one of them answers correctly, which makes Momo declare ''that'' Toramaru is the impostor - because the real Toramaru wouldn't remember those things. ** Similarily in ''Akatsuki!! Otokojuku'', Date Omito appears as an underling of Todou Hyoue. 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.

** In ''Akatsuki!! Otokojuku'', Akashi Gouji and [[spoiler:the Date clone]] does it to Hotei.

* KilledOffForReal: Lots of opponents in the Daibukai arc. [[spoiler:Out of Otokojuku students, Dokugantetsu, Henshouki, Jaki and Gobarski.]]

* LighterAndSofter: To an extent, the anime adaptation. As an example, the guillotine that Togashi and Edogwa are put in by Akashi is a real guillotine in the manga, but a "rock guillotine" in the anime. Which does allow Togashi to show his guts more by simply breaking the rock with his head when it gets dropped, whereas in the manga he was saved by Momo.
