** The DatePeepers episode has Inui cryptically telling Kaido over the phone "it's a date", which makes Kaido wonder [[MistakenForGay if Inui is asking HIM out]]. It crosses into this as Kaido [[IfItsYouItsOkay seems to be kinda receptive to the idea]] of [[HoYay at least having a date with Inui...]]

* WaxOnWaxOff: In ''The New Prince of Tennis'', Mifune sends [[BigThinShortTrio Tanishi, Kenya, and Ryoma]] on a "special mission" to get more sake for him, which seems completely irrelevant to tennis. Kenya later reflects that navigating the cave and maneuvering through the laser tripwires during the errand actually helped improve his terrible balance.

** A favorite tactic of Atobe. His match with Tezuka ends up in a 37-35 point tiebreak (tiebreaks usually are to 7 points), and his match with Ryoma later in the series goes to 117-119. This tactic gets reversed on him by Irie in Shin Prince of Tennis, [[UptoEleven where their tiebreak goes to 187-187]].

* RecycledPremise: For all the Mini-arc competitions, as they have the basic structure (competition with a GargleBlaster made by Inui, Ryoma is among the final survivors and most of them end up taking the ''[[{{Pun}} penal-tea]])'' with some differences:
** The first one was the training chapter, where most of the regulars drank an Inui juice and most of them passed out (with only Fuji and Tezuka surviving it).
** Then we got the Bowling Tournament, where everyone who failed would take a zip of Aozu (wich makes ''[[ExtremeOmnivore Fuji]]'' faint) and the losing team would drink an entire jug.
** In the [[{{Filler}} anime-only]], the same happens, but with ''billiards''. The only difference is that Fuji survives because he wanted revenge for the Aozu.
** In the Beach-Volley Tournament, it happens again. The only difference is that Rokkaku joins the game.
** ''Then'' we have the ''Yakiniku'' eating contest, where the table with the most eaters would win. Differences: There are ''four'' schools participating (Seigaku, Shitenhouji, Higa and Hyoutei).
** ''And theeeen'' New Prince of Tennis gives us a "Pick-Up Girls competition", where the Highschoolers and the Middleschoolers would compete to see wich group can flirt succesfully. Each loser would have to eat onigiris made by [[LethalChef Inui, Renji and Akuto]].

''The Prince of Tennis'' is a [[LongRunners long-running]] sports anime and manga series, and has spawned a live-action movie, video games and over a dozen musicals. What's it about? Well, [[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin "boys playing tennis"]] ...[[CaptainObvious duh]]!

Okay, but seriously, folks... the story's about this kid named Ryoma Echizen, a pre-teen tennis prodigy who transfers to Seigaku (a shortened form of Seishun Gakuen, used by everyone in the series), a school renowned for its rich tennis tradition. In the next ranking tournament he beats some of best players in the school and secures a place on the regular tennis club. From then on, the series follows the Seigaku tennis club's progress towards the middle school National Championship, facing a new rival team in each [[TournamentArc new story arc]]. The characters develop their own styles of play (complete with [[ArtisticLicensePhysics increasingly bizarre and complex shots]]). Even the sometimes hard-to-approach Echizen eventually learns what the game means to him as time goes on.

** Many characters frequently use English phrases as well; some have named their [[CallingYourAttacks tennis moves]] in English, ("Moon Volley", "Laser Beam", "Speed Bullet"), while others use them regularly. For instance, Kawamura's [[HotBlooded BUUUUUUURNIIIING, BABYYYY!!!]], and "Lucky" Sengoku.
** Sengoku's Gratuitous English use is actually interesting. While he often says [[CatchPhrase "lucky"]], he also uses minor phrases like "thank you". His pronunciation is slightly better than most other in the series, but he still claims that he [[LampshadeHanging is no good at English]].
** During the Invitational Members Arc, and even though the American players are supposed to be "americans", they speak a very deformed version of English to their opponents and to their fangirls, paparazzi, and coach, perhaps just to keep their "foreign" status for the viewers.

* HelloNurse: Hanamura, Yumiko, [[spoiler: Yuuki]].
* HeroicResolve: In the middle of an informal tennis match he was losing against a member of the Shishigaku tennis club, Tezuka finally overcomes his shoulder injury when his opponent [[KickTheDog aims a direct shot at his protegee, Miyuki]], who is barely recovering from an HeroicBSOD.

* SeriousBusiness: Who knew the world of Japanese middle-school tennis was so competitive? Taken to even more serious extremes in the sequel, New Prince of Tennis, where the strongest of the strongest players use what is called "Inter-dimensional Tennis," a surreal, unexplainable style of play which revolves around shots that can literally shatter walls, summoning illusionary creatures such as pirate demons, creating black holes, and using an infinite number of tennis balls. And all this in a series where, at a time, the most dangerous thing to worry about was a kid who can take away your five senses.

This is also depicted and played with in the special MV of ''Birthday ~Aruki Hajimeta hi~'' and ''Rock 54!? ~Rock na Hito wo Sagashitemiyou~'', where Tezuka returns and the nine of them form a big BoyBand, where they play up an entire story around it: with Ryuzaki-sensei as their manager, Tomoka and Sakuno as their groupies, the Ichinen Trio as staff members, reharsals, tours, fangirls, a big concert and ''the prominent rivals joining them playing instruments along with Seigaku''.
