* AdaptationDyeJob: Several characters got a different hair colour in the anime from what they were shown with on the colour manga covers:
** Akashi Gouji: White to black
** Henshouki: Black to white
** J: Brown to blonde
** Manjimaru: Light yellow to dark blue
** Hien: Orange to pink (though an early manga cover does show Hien with light pink hair rather than orange, and a later one shows him as blonde)
** Many characters who were shown with brown hair on the covers also got black hair for the anime instead.



*** Liu-Yan in ''Akatsuki!! Otokojuku'' manages to block the Deadly Wind Vaccuum Wave by spinning.



** In ''Akatsuki!! Otokojuku'', [[spoiler: Gunpei]].

* PaperThinDisguise: Everyone on the Otokojuku team can tell that Shoukaku is really [[spoiler: Eikei]] after his first fight, Jaki even confirming it. The reveal is still treated with a degree of surprise.

** Parodied by some of Togashi and Toramaru's tag team attacks, where at one point Togashi praised Toramaru for remembering the name of the attack, and another time is told to ''not'' call the attack tname as it would give away how the attack worked.

** Kouki vs. Yin-Ren. And Kouki wasn't even using his arms.



** 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. Using the explanation that she "covers her face up like a woman would do", which we never see actualy happen in 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.

* 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. By 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.

Interestingly, both variants are later confirmed to exist in ''Akatsuki!! Otokojuku'' - one character uses the "pour poison on the hands" version, and it's mentioned that it's a way to obtain it instantly while killing the user as opposed to using the pot.



* 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.

* TalkingIsAFreeAction: Fighters on both sides always take the time to let the opponent name and sometimes explain their fighting styles. Hilariously [[subverted]] when Edajima knocks his first opponent in the Heaven-Challenging Tournament out with one punch while they were in the middle of naming their technique.

* UnreliableNarrator: The narrator of this series is a lying, cheating bastard who only cares to make you invested in a fight by making it "for real", so he goes on and on about how this or this character just "died", in no uncertain terms. But then it's revealed all of the characters survived despite the narrator clearly saying otherwise. Togashi actualy "died" three times during the course of the series, and was twice confirmed dead by the narrator.

** Yin-Ren in ''Akatsuki!! Otokojuku'' can change the size of his body at will.

* 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.

* 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.



** The Otokojuku team for the Seven Tusks, when they were joined by several former opponents from the Heaven-Challenging Tournament.
** Even more so in ''Akatsuki!! Otokojuku'', 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.



* OnlyKnownByTheirNickname: For quite a while, J. It's halfway through the manga we learn that his real name is [[spoiler:King Battler Junior]].



* RecapEpisode: The final episode of the anime basically consisted of a recap of the prior 33 episodes.

* 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.

And that Jaki had ruled Otokojuku for ''14'' years.
** In ''The Legend of Edajima Heihachi'', Togashi's father Togashi Genzo shows up. So does his wife and ''one'' child, but in ''Sakigake!! Otokojuku'' it was established that Togashi enrolled in Otokojuku to find out the truth about his older brother's death.


Added DiffLines:

** In ''The Legend of Edajima Heihachi'', Göring and Hitler himself ([[BodyDouble or is it?]]) shows up. Not very surprising, since the story takes place during World War II, Japan was allied with Germany and Edajima is part of the Japanese force.

** 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.
