* DoppelgangerSpin: A variation, in that Kageto Kinoshita doesn't use it to attack, but rather to make "clones" of himself so he can get his and everybody else's work done. Tournament Judge Pierrot Bolnez also has this talent used to taste all of the submissions at once. Both characters learned this technique while working in the circus, surprisingly.

* DoubleEntendre: Tsukino subverts this. When Ken convinces Suwabara not to commit seppuku by telling him that Monica was pregnant, Ken says "when a man and a woman are living in the same house alone, there is nothing for them to do except--" She completes the sentence saying "play cards, right, Manager?"

* InsaneTrollLogic: After marrying and divorcing a woman for the sake of a reaction, Kuroyanagi defends his actions by claiming that since the prefecture they're in has the lowest divorce rate in the country, people should get divorced more to get closer to the national average.
--> '''Kuroyanagi''': You only have one life to live, but you can get divorced as many times as you want. Oh how wonderful, divorces!

* InvincibleHero: Azuma ties once the entire series. And has an implied loss twice, when people in other brackets (first Koala, then Shadow White) do better than him. He is never out right defeated in a direct competition, though.
** Actually, the tie doesn't really count since Azuma didn't participate in the jam match against Tsutsumi
** Didn't he lose against Miki Norihei in the yakitate 25 in a seaweed bread contest?
** Does that count, since Mr. Norihei is from another dimension?



* ManlyGay: Arguably Mokoyama, who likes to call Matsuhiro "Ken-chan"
** Taken to CampGay levels in the Philippine dub.



* MediumAwareness (When the manga shifts to color in the middle of a page,they wonder how they can suddenly see colours now).

* SeriousBusiness: Apparently it's serious enough that a cooking duel between breadmakers from two competing bakery chains can warrant a stadium-sized audience and "Death of Anna Nicole Smith"-level media coverage.

* BadassNormal: Kawachi doesn't have unusually warm hands like Azuma; he doesn't have Kanmuri's savant-level intelligence; and he doesn't have Suwabara's talent. What he does have is a solid grasp of the fundamentals of baking and [[{{Determinator}} unmatched determination]]. While it [[NoRespectGuy might not earn him any respect]], it does make him one of the best bakers in the world outside of Kazuma.



* {{Fanservice}}: Monica Adenauer [[InvokedTrope invokes this]] during her match of the Monaco Cup against Suwabara, wearing only a FlagBikini in an attempt to distract him. To counter it, Suwabara (who didn't slack on his samurai training even after becoming a baker) strips down to a LoinCloth, because some readers like the male body, too. Neither is distracted, but the two do [[OfficialCouple get together]] afterwards.



* FlagBikini

to:

* FlagBikiniFlagBikini: Monica wears one to distract Kai during their match.


Added DiffLines:

* MadeOfIron: Played for laughs when Ken Matsushiro becomes head of a {{Yakuza}} clan - he'll show up to offer commentary at Kazuma's matches, blithely oblivious to damage he's taken from the Yakuza dealings that he just left, just as large bleeding cuts or shuriken stuck in him.


Added DiffLines:

* TheWorfEffect: Kai Suwabara is given a profile right off the bat that declares him one of the rising stars of the baking world, and his bread is shown to be so well-made that the first one he makes can take a punch and not lose its shape. His skill is repeatedly talked up for the first third of the manga, to make it seem all the more impressive when he gets taken down. And get taken down frequently, he does - see his record under InformedAbility.

** And there was yet another sequence involving Kawachi as a [[{{Naruto}} blond ninja in bright orange clothes]].
** Then there's [[http://www.mangareader.net/334-22959-23/yakitate-japan/chapter-123.html this]], done in the style of ''Manga/JoJosBizarreAdventure'', which gets several other shout-outs, to the point where it is hard to believe the manga-ka isn't a fan.

* Yuuichi Kirisaki- owner and ManipulativeBastard of St. Pierre's, rival of Pantasia. He looks like Gendō Ikari from Anime/NeonGenesisEvangelion and is [[HeyItsThatVoice voiced by the guy]] who did the voice of Gendō too. He tries sabotaging Team Japan during the [[TournamentArc Monaco Cup]] and hires the members of Team America to defeat them. He starts Yakitate 25!(9 in anime) as an attempt to humiliate Kazuma. [[spoiler: He was the guy that gave Kazuma the inspiration to start Ja-pan, the national bread of Japan.]]

* GenreSavvy: In a recent omake Kazuma Azuma proves to be a little insightful to the world he lives in. Sometime when both he and Tsukino were kids they both ended up in a dry well. To escape Azuma fed her a piece of bread realizing that the pun would turn her into a tower to facilitate their escape.
** Kirisaki takes the cake for this though. [[spoiler: Having Yukino make a reverse tart so that the reaction would switch all of the wins in losses in Yakitate 25.]]
