* 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.]]

Added DiffLines:

* TimeTravel: One of Azuma's bread can invoke ''this'' of all things as a reaction[[spoiler:, nullifying [[DeathByChildbirth Pierrot's mother's]] and father's tragic fate into seemingly not happening in the first place]]. Considering one has already sent you to near-afterlife, this should come as no surprise.

** Kawachi becomes this later on. His entire role in the manga essentially becomes to be less cool, less respected, and less fantastic than Azuma, Kai, and the others. Even his family starts insulting and looking down on him... that's just cruel.

** Kawachi becomes this later on. His entire role in the manga essentially becomes to be less cool, less respected, and less fantastic than Azuma, Kai, and the others. Even his family starts insulting and looking down on him... that's just cruel. The final panel of the manga is even of him being beaten up.



* CharlesAtlasSuperpower: Though he doesn't have any special innate abilities like Azuma has, Kawaichi is eventually able to gain his own version of the Solar Hands (called Solar Gauntlets) as well as superhuman finger dexterity, though grueling physical training.

* GenerationXerox: A background gag in the final chapter: [[spoiler: Monica is carrying a baby that looks like a miniature Kai.]]



* TheIdiotFromOsaka: After his early HeelFaceTurn, this becomes the prime focus of Kawachi's characterization, apparently unable to understand any of the higher-end techniques or rare ingredients any of the other bakers use. In fairness, many of the techniques and ingredients in question are ones uncommon even to most bakers.



* LargeHam: MISTER KEN MATSUSHIRO!

to:

* LargeHam: MISTER KEN MATSUSHIRO!MATSUSHIRO! Kurouyanagi also becomes rather dramatic when judging bread - while he tries his best to downplay it at first, he eventually comes to embrace it and even outdo himself.


Added DiffLines:

* MeaningfulName: Kawachi is named after the Kawachi province, which is now part of the modern-day Osaka prefecture. Sure enough, he's TheIdiotFromOsaka.


Added DiffLines:

* MistreatmentInducedBetrayal: Kanmuri was mostly a PunchClockVillain upon his first appearance anyhow, but Yukino's cruel treatment of him (including destroying his lab and all his research) is all he needs to permanently ditch her for Azuma and friends.


Added DiffLines:

* NoRespectGuy: Kawachi is an excellent baker (his only losses in competition are either due to outside interference or to Azuma) and he's more than willing to [[{{Determinator}} do whatever it takes]] to ensure his victories, and even his worst moments have sympathetic motives (namely, to help support his family). He's even instrumental in Azuma and friends' victories in many of the arcs. The way everyone treats him, however, you'd think he was an incompetent bum that should count himself lucky to be tolerated by everyone else.


Added DiffLines:

* SelfParody: One extra in the collected manga volumes is a parody of the series, centering around an American kid who wants to become an expert at making rice. It does a quick parody of the first story arc, complete with "Shiroyanagi" (whose name starts with "white", to contrast Kuroyanagi whose name starts with "black") eliminating Azuma and Kai from competition because they smell too much like bread.

** The Black Tri-Stars from MobileSuitGundam show up as three expert bakers from St. Pierre's Kyūshū branch. They tasted Kazuma's Black Ja-pan and had a reaction where they fought the Nobel Gundam from GGundam which was piloted by Yukino (and had a caption reminding people they were still watching ''Yakitate!! Japan''. ) They quit after the reaction.

* MadeOfEvil: [[spoiler:The Devil Bread was made from Kirisaki's frustration and stress from his difficult baking career. While it's powerful, especially when it goes OneWingedAngel, it's ultimately defeated by the power of Azuma's bread, [[GoodHurtsEvil which is powered]] [[EvilCannotComprehendGood by hopes and dreams]].]]

* TakingYouWithMe: [[spoiler:The Devil Bread]] attempts this on Azuma by shooting a copy of Azuma's turtle bread from [[FreudWasRight his crotch]].

* MonsterClown: Pierrot Bolnez isn't a villain, but his powers and abilities are so uncanny that he arguably qualifies.
