To be fair, though, those are the rules. When he does step in to save Ueki from certain death--against the tournament's rules--he promptly suffers from the MentorOccupationalHazard. Though he doesn't die, he is [[spoiler:sent to Hell]].



* SnarkyNonHumanSidekick - Tenko, although he quickly loses his initial snarkiness and becomes more of a standard NonHumanSidekick later on.
* SplitScreenReaction
* SpoilerOpening - the second OP spoils quite a few things, most significantly the fight against Team Marilyn.
* SuperpowerLottery
* TalkingIsAFreeAction - it may be more of a premise of the whole show than HeartIsAnAwesomePower.

* [[TalkToTheFist Talk To The Tree]]
-->'''Enemy:''' Do you want to know what my ability is? I'll show you. When I squeeze a stone, I can... *tree hitting a face, knockdown*
* TeensAreMonsters - All of the contestants in the tournament are supposedly junior high school students, yet a lot of them want to be the champion in order to take over the world, and have no qualms about '''''killing their opponents'''''.
* TooDumbToFool - BJ starts off trying to win fights by claiming to be Robert Haydn, which causes people to run in fear. While Mori falls for this, Ueki just remembers that BJ introduced himself as BJ earlier that day, and just can't seem to understand BJ's claims that his name is really Robert Haydn... And keeps insisting that he's really BJ. The fact that he doesn't even know who Robert Haydn is probably helps.
* TournamentArc: well, nothing more than that.
* TrueCompanions
* {{Tsundere}} - Mori, who leans much more toward ''tsuntsun'' than ''deredere''
* TunnelKing - One character has, as he calls it, "A power to turn my beautiful hair into a drill!" which allows him to dig extremely fast.
* WeakButSkilled - Sano. Just Sano. (leads to awesome fights)
* WhatKindOfLamePowerIsHeartAnyway - so very subverted.
* YouGottaHaveBlueHair - Ueki and Mori have green and aquamarine hair respectively. Not to mention Rinko, whose hair is pink.
