* BookEnds: Atsuko Maeda's first single participation in Music/AKB48 was the group's debut single, "Sakura no Hanabiratachi". A week before Maeda's graduation from the group six years later, Music/AKB48 released an album on which she recorded a solo, more melancholy reprise of the same song. "Sakura no Hanabiratachi" was also the final song performed during her graduation performance.

* SlutShaming: In January 2013, Minami Minegishi was caught leaving the house of Alan Shirahama, a member of the J-Pop boy-bands EXILE and Generations. Since the girls of AKB48 are contractually forbidden from having romantic relationships in order to preserve the fans' fantasies,[[note]]Something that may technically be illegal.[[/note]] she was demoted to a trainee member status. Minami all-but shaved her head - a symbol of contrition in Japanese culture - and uploaded a video of herself tearfully apologizing for her "thoughtless behavior" and begging for her fans' forgiveness. In August of 2013, she was reinstated to her prior position as the leader of Team 4.

* FriendlyRivalry: Described in the Team K song "Itoshiki Rival"
-->''I don't know when it was\\
The people around us\\
Began calling you my rival\\
And I became aware of it\\
We were able to live strong\\
Because we competed with each other\\
If you should happen to disappear\\
What would I do?\\
Beloved rival''
** This most likely reflected on the [[Main/FriendlyRivalry friendly rivalry]] between Jurina and Sayanee, who's respective groups also were considered rivals, and the two of them had concurrent positions in Team K at the same time.
