** In the manga, this is actually the official uniform of the Destiny Management Bureau — at least for women. Men get stupid Easter Bunny outfits. This causes problems: one cannot bend her waist when wearing a Bunny Girl outfit, and the Easter Bunny outfits are about as hot and sweaty as you would imagine. Without uniforms, however, the (mostly female) cast would not have been able to pursue the DesignatedHero into the Bureau's high security areas, where the dork could possibly do serious damage to the universe itself. The ChaseScene which follows is patently ridiculous.

* TheReasonYouSuckSpeech: Ten delivers one to Ataru in the first movie, "Only You."
--> '''Ten:''' Tomorrow you're going to get married to that woman [Elle], but it's more like a condemned man's last night, isn't it? Even an idiot like you can understand that. Well, good riddance. This is your own punishment for mistreating Lum, the inevitable consequences for your prior misdeeds. It's good that for the rest of your life you'll be chained to that girl - better for Lum, better yet for the entire universe. I hope you're miserable! I hope you're suffering! I hope you're sad! Poor Lum felt the same way about you, you disgusting slimeball! That's all I have to say. Good night.

* TenLittleMurderVictims: There is an anime only episode "And Then There Were None" where the group was killed off one by one till only Ataru was left. [èspoiler: In the end, it turned out the murders and complicated reveal of a killer with Ataru's face were a complicated plan by the perfectly unharmed victims to "Fix" Ataru's personality. The ending makes it pretty clear that Ataru saw through it at some point and proved to be a better actor than they had realized.]]

* AllLoveIsUnrequited: And if it isn't (the rare examples being Tsubame and Sakura and, eventually, Shinobu and [[spoiler:Inaba]]), the rest of the craziness conspires to keep them apart. Arguably, Ataru and Lum also love each other, but analyzing ''that'' would require a separate page altogether. Even Takahashi had to do it in the last volume of the latest version of the manga.

* AllMenArePerverts: Ataru, in spades. In the 10th anniversary movie ''Always My Darling'', Princess Lupika's computer pinpoints him as the most lecherous man in the universe.
** Hell, ''every'' teenager in the series (and Ten) is a pervert except Inaba, Rei, Tobimaro, [[spoiler:Nagisa]] and certain one-shot characters.

to:

** Sometimes it's also lampshaded or parodied. There's a story that involves Ataru, Lum, Shinobu, and Mendou going on a trip together and shows each of them separately being excited about spending time with the person they love (Ataru thinks about Shinobu, Lum thinks about Ataru, Shinobu thinks about Mendou, and Mendou thinks about Lum).

** Well, during the episode where the {{Tengu}}'s wanted to blast Ryu with a sex change ray and the episode when the bluebird was granting wishes, he stopped pretending Ryuunosuke was a boy in favor of agressively making it real.

* YouDidntAsk: In one chapter/episode, Ataru, Lum and several of their friends went camping. Lum was making lunch and everyone was happy… except Ataru. He adamantly refused to eat. [[BigEater Keep in mind this is a guy who usually eats ANYTHING and EVERYTHING he can get his hands on]]. His friends nagged him about rudely rejecting Lum's food… and then they tried it. Right away they dragged Ataru away and asked him why he had not warned them Lum's food is ''very'' spicy. His answer? They did not ask (and he did not want to warn them).

* CantActPervertedTowardALoveInterest: Ataru, partly because Lum would likely consider this as his submission to their "marriage".

** Mr. Fujinami is a psychotic PoliticallyIncorrectVillain sexist maniac who finds Ryuunosuke's gender so offensive that he has spent all of her life trying to forcibly brainwash her into believing she's a boy so that he can pass her off as a "worthy" heir to his stupid tea shop. In pursuit of this, her verbally castigates and humiliates her, exercises a complete stranglehold over her finances, and constantly beats the shit out of her in an attempt to simultaneously "toughen her up" and to break her will so that she will submit to his delusional wishes.

* MoodWhiplash: Dramatic moments, whether or not they're PlayedForLaughs often fall into this.
** After giving Ataru a ''Ten Little Indians''-style scare, the group believes her was DrivenToSuicide after hearing a gunshot from his hospital room, only to find he had a Western on TV while chasing his nurse around.
** When Ataru eats some food Ran had made for Rei and gets seriously ill, Lum travels to a [[Literature/AliceInWonderland Wonderland]]-style world to find an antidote. Hijinks ensue but when Ataru's monitor flatlines, Lum suffers a massive HeroicBSOD and nearly crosses the DespairEventHorizon. She later finds Ataru snacking in his room and that Cherry had fallen asleep and unplugged the monitor by accident.
** Lum has amnesia from crashing onto the Mendou estate and is convinced she is Shutarou's fiancee. The Stormtroopers and Ataru mount a rescue mission, but not before Megane leaves behind a last will and testament, fully expecting to go to his death. The normal slapstick resumes immediately.

** One [=AnimEigo=] episode took this a step further by simply giving up and putting "(Completely untranslatable bad puns)" underneath a newsman's report that is filled with them.
