* HypnoticEyes: ''The New Prince of Tennis'' introduces Tsukimitsu Ochi, nicknamed "The Mental Assassin," who has an ability where he can control his opponents with his eyes. His eyes shake up Atobe so much that he begins to fault uncontrollably.

* GargleBlaster: Inui's juices.juices are not alcoholic, but pretty much everyone on the team breaks out in a cold sweat at the thought of them, and even Fuji, who otherwise happily drinks anything Inui makes, passed out upon imbibing the "Aozu".

Okay, but seriously, folks... the story's about this kid named Echizen Ryoma, 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.

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).

** Not to mention Momoshiro in the anime, who sees Nanjirou following Ryoma and Sakuno around and ends up calling him a {{lolicon}}. "He must be following ''her''!"

* SnowMeansLove: Invoked for HoYay value. [[AloofBigBrother Tezuka]] finds [[EyesAlwaysShut Fuji]] once waiting for him outside an hospital, and so as they speak about the upcoming tournaments, snow starts falling down on them, so Fuji [[UmbrellaOfTogetherness covers both of them with his red umbrella]] as they go home. Needless to say, the [[YaoiFangirl Tezuka/Fuji fans]] [[ShipTease had a field day]].
