* BossInMookClothing: Park Du-na doesn't seem like much at first glance, but she's actually the favorite to win the G-Girl preliminary tournament. [[spoiler: Yuzuko struggles against her for most of their fight before finally getting her in a Guillotine Choke.]]

* CurbstompBattle: [[spoiler: Natsuo vs. Hisako Sogabe in the first round of the G-Girl tournament.

* DownerEnding: It depends on your point of view. [[spoiler: It is perfectly in line with the tone and premise of the overall series, but the fact that Natsuo seemingly learned absolutely nothing from her loss could still be seen as this]].
* FreudianExcuse: As mentioned above, it's heavily implied that Natsuo's cold, violent behavior is at least partially due to abuse from her brother and the bullying she was subjected to as a child.

Actually she's just a [[JerkAss sadistic bitch]] of a high-school girl. When she finally meets someone, Yuzuko Mawatari, who's much better at her in a sport she can't effortlessly excel at, MixedMartialArts, ''and'' who is happy and well-balanced, she makes it her mission in life to ''[[WhatTheHellHero run Yuzuko into the ground.]]''

* BittersweetEnding: [[spoiler: Natsuo is defeated by Yuzuko during the final round of the tournament, making all of her hard work for nothing. Still, she considers it something of a moral victory, and she is able to tell Yuzuko that they're nothing alike. Though Yuzuko's MMA career continues to take off thanks to her tournament victory, Natsuo makes it clear that she still intends to one day defeat her and those like her]].

* {{Deconstruction}}: Yuzuko is a deconstruction of the typical sports manga protagonist. Spirited, hard-working, not afraid of anything, incredibly determined, enjoying the sport no matter what happens...and everyone around her finds it to be creepy, to an almost uncanny valley degree. A normal person should be nervous, should be afraid at points, should be excited when they win and sad when they lose, not just have a permanent smile stuck on their face. Most of her opponents interpret her high spirits and love of the sport as her mocking them when she wins. All of that just drives most people away from her. Yuzuko herself just doesn't get what's wrong, and why everyone isn't having fun like she is.

* HopeSpot: In the final chapter, it seems like Natuso may have finally repaired her relationship with her brother as they sit together and watch a movie. [[spoiler: It turns out it was AllJustADream]].

A {{Seinen}} {{manga}} series written by Oota Moare, serialized in a small magazine ''Good! Afternoon.'' Although it's been running since 2008, at the time of writing, late 2011, there have been only 14 ~40 page chapters (and it's a regular feature in the magazine), due being a '''''trimonthly publication'''''. It has a lot in common with ''Manga/{{Airmaster}}'', which also features a tall schoolgirl who excels at sports as the main character and largely avoids fanservice, although [[Manga/{{Airmaster}} Maki]] is much less a sadistic bitch and more a ShrinkingViolet. Also, ''Teppu'' is very realistic, while ''Airmaster''... isn't.

* CutShort: The manga ends directly after the G-girl qualifiers, apparently due to illness on the author's part.



* InvincibleHero: Natsuo has lost twice, both times against Yuzuko, and fully expected to the second time, though she didn't anticipate how badly she was going to get beaten. Her first "real" fight was won easily, and she kicks everyone's ass at anything that isn't MMA. All of this greatly disappoints her.

[[spoiler:She loses in the finale as well, though she considers it a sort of moral victory in being able to give voice to her loathing. Seeing it averted may or may also not have helped fix things with her brother.]]
