* SlidingScaleOfIdealismVersusCynicism: Just about every character has a serious character flaw and almost all of the traditionally "good" characters wind up horribly injured. Recent arcs are starting to slide the other way, though.

* FailureIsTheOnlyOption: For as badass and invincible Ryo is often presented he never actually outright wins any of his main fights in the manga. He does however win against a few no names (sometimes) and its strongly implied that he has won many fights in the street outside of the ring.

* MusclesAreMeaningless: Ryo is a natural weakling and very rarely has any real mass to him throught the series. This is especialy noticable in the Toma arc. The only exception being when he had to put on bulk to fight against Suwagara
