The manga has ended in Japan (where it was wildly successful), with over 40 volumes and 40 million copies sold in that country alone. The sequel, Shin Prince of Tennis, is currently ongoing and now also has the anime airing. A LiveActionAdaptation Movie was also made. Two animated movies have also been released in cinemas: The Two Samurai: The First Game, co-released with short movie A Gift from Atobe (2005) and The Battle of the British City (2011).

Also! Characters/ThePrinceOfTennis Character sheet has just been added. '''PLEASE''', if you've got new tropes for the characters of the series, add them ''there''.

!!Tropes found in The Prince of Tennis:!!This manga provides examples of:



** The OVA's have been praised by lots of fans for re-telling situations from the manga in quite a better light and portraying some characters more sympathetically. A clear example is the resolution of the [[spoiler: Atobe vs. Ryoma]] match in the Nationals, where [[spoiler: Ryoma's borderline {{Jerkass}}-ish behavior is quite toned down and Atobe even gets to cut his hair himself]].

* TheMentor: Tezuka's grandfather towards his grandson. Tezuka himself towards Echizen because he's always telling him to become Seigaku's pillar of support (particularly dramatic after [[spoiler: his potentially career-ending injury in the match against Atobe, which forced him to temporarily leave his team to get treatment]]. Also, Tezuka towards Miyuki, and possibly the Rikkai Troika (Sanada, Yukimura, Yanagi--specially the latter) towards Kirihara.

* BlondGuysAreEvil: Kevin, to some degree. He's more of a JerkAss than a true evil, then evolves into a JerkWithAHeartOfGold.

Added DiffLines:

** 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]].

Added DiffLines:

* 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]].
