* EdibleThemeNaming: ''Everyone.'' Relatively obvious are Carrot, Onion, Apricot, Count Potato Chips, and Cinnamon Tea; there's also Tira Misu, Chocolat (chocolate) and Marron (chestnut). Gateau, eclair, and mille-feuille are all French pastries. Sachertorte is a rich Austrian chocolate cake. Even [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Charlotte_%28dessert%29 Charlotte]] is a food name. Satoru Akahori is fond of this trope, and practically everything he writes uses it.
** Apricot's maiden name is ''Anzu'', which is Japanese for...apricot. So her name is basically Apricot Apricot. Double EdibleThemeNaming!

** You can also spot ''tons'' of Expy Extras in the background of various manga panels, especially in the beach episodes, and {{Cosplay}}s of characters from ''VideoGame/SamuraiShodown'', ''VideoGame/{{Darkstalkers}}'', UruseiYatsura and Anime/SuperDimensionFortressMacross, amongst others. In the 'Iron Chef' chapter, most of the cast of Franchise/{{Angelique}} seems to be in attendance.

* LoveFatherLoveSon: Millefeuille's thing for Onion seems to have passed down to Carrot. Though to be fair, he likes teasing everybody, he just enjoys flirting with those two the most.



* NoFourthWall: Happens constantly, but especially courtesy of Potei and his butler. The most blatant example is a chapter near the middle of the manga where Carrot thinks the series is ending, and proceeds to promise all his teammates their ideal endings. An author {{cameo}} jumps in just in time to ruin the ensuing Carrot/Marron HoYay, and explain that Carrot got the chapter title wrong.
