* GoldfishScoopingGame: During the festival episode. Trying to find Haruko, who disappeared with her two friends, he finds her at the fish grabbing game. She wanted to help a little boy and girl get one but admits she's clumsy. Sakuragi of course boasts his genius and tries unsuccessfully several times, soon running out of money. He didn't give up and insists the guy "put it on his tab" and furiously swishes around to get the fish. The owner of course is not pleased and gives him whatever fish he wants.

** During the gang fight, Ayako gets slapped. Ryouta [[UnstoppableRage goes apeshit at the guy who beat her]], repeteadly screaming that women should not be hit ever. This is actually a FunnyAneurysmMoment if you read the prequel, where an 11-year-old Miyagi slapped Ayako twice.

And ''then'' he pushed her away and freaked out when she ''actually'' got hurt.)

First published in 1990 in Shueisha's ''Magazine/ShonenJump'', ''Slam Dunk'' became an instant phenomenon throughout Japanese culture and set many standards in sport manga; becoming one of ''JUMP'''s "Golden Trio" alongside ''Manga/DragonBall'' and ''Manga/YuYuHakusho'', bringing sales up to their record all-time high of over sixty five million copies nationwide. It subverted the then-usual trope of [[InstantExpert instant sport genius]] with a main character who, while having a lot of potential, is a real newbie and is treated as one even when he makes astounding progress. It was also written under the real supposition that very few people would know the sport, using the protagonist road to learn a new sport as a way to explain the rules and tactics, and even adding extra blurbs for bigger inside.

The pretty girl in question, [[{{Dojikko}} Haruko]] [[NaiveEverygirl Akagi]], is a basketball fan as well as a former player, and Hanamichi, who has instantly fallen in love with her, lies saying that he is an expert in the sport. Although she is not fooled, she finds that Hanamichi has a hidden natural talent (by seeing him try to dunk and ''slam his forehead against the backboard'' no less), and encourages him to apply into the school's basketball team. Unfortunately, she also lets slip that she is in love with one [[TheStoic Kaede Rukawa]], an uber-talented rookie. Hanamichi is so crushed that he commits the mistake of insulting the sport just when the team captain was near.

** Kogure, who was substituting for a tired and dehydrated [[spoiler: Mitsui]] in the final prefectural decider against Ryonan [[note]]Kainan already having clinched a berth in the Inter-High Tournament by sweeping the prefecture and going undefeated in the final four, the runners-up Shohoku and Ryonan, with one loss each against Kainan in the final four, has to square off for the second berth[[/note]], started reliving his entire high school basketball career as he attempted a crucial three-pointer, starting from when he first met Akagi during the freshman tryouts, when their hopes of winning the prefecture were crushed after they lost Mitsui to injury, on how many of their peers quit the team after losing time and time again, on how he was spurred by Akagi's determination to win despite all odds, up to when Shohoku became a formidable team with the return of both Mitsui and Miyagi and the addition of Sakuragi ang Rukawa in the starting lineup, brooding over the fact that this is his and Akagi's last chance for glory. Needless to say, [[PlayedForDrama he made the crucial shot.]]

* EverythingsBetterWithMonkeys: No actual monkeys in the show, but Sakuragi is described as a "redheaded monkey" and Akagi's nickname is literally "Gori" (short for Gorilla). In fact, any excessively big and manly guy is referred to as a gorilla. Whenever Shohoku is chibified, they're usually portrayed as monkeys being led by a gorilla (except Rukawa whose a fox). From different teams we have Kyota, an equally HotBlooded rival, that is called "Wild Monkey" while Akagi's rival, Uozomi (who also has big stature), is nicknamed "Boss Monkey".
