* ExecutiveMeddling: [[spoiler:InUniverse, it becomes a major plot point as of episode as of #11, when it turns out that the characters realise they'e in a TV show and that it's actively being rewritten by a [[ToeiCompany Toei]] executive. Nobuo is able to sense and even predict this to a degree.]]

* LikeRealityUnlessNoted: The world of ''Akibaranger'' is our world with the exception that ''Super Sentai'' and ''Power Rangers'' exist but other [[ToeiCompany Toei]] and toku series don't or exist as something else.

** The stances that the Akibarangers pull is VERY similar to that of the [[DragonBallZ Ginyu Force's]].

Added DiffLines:

** ''Franchise/SuperSentai'' meets ''LightNovel/LoveChunibyoAndOtherDelusions'' is also a fair comparison.

* [[spoiler:TheBadGuyWins, YouCantFightFate: After failing to extend the storyline via {{Foreshadowing}}, being forced to engage & defeat the BigBad, and even ''attempting to destroy the [[TheEnd end title]],'' the Akibarangers still can't stop Saburo Hatte, represented as an [[WordOfGod in-universe god]], from ending the series early. He finally shows up "in-person" and [[FilmTheHand covers the lens]]]].
** [[spoiler: Of course, with a second season on its way, they may have yet extended their stay yet.]]
* {{Badass}}: The core team are pretty badass, though Red and Yellow probably qualify as examples of the LethalJokeCharacter.
** BadassGrandpa: Kazuo Niibori and Yoshimoto Okamato, who're the oldest people seen, and are veteran suit actors who played the heroes and big bads - and can ''still'' kick ass.

** Yumeria's costume from the end of #7 is pretty much a Music/{{Vocaloid}}, with a ''samurai'' helmet just because.

* RealLifeWritesThePlot: Mitsuki was replaced by Luna in Season 2, due to scheduling conflicts on Kyoko Hinami's part (she was shooting a movie at the same time as Akiba S2).

** Lampshaded and averted in episode 9. When a character sees Takuma Tsuzuki for the first time, they instantly assume that it's Manpei Takagi, the actor who played GekiBlue, playing himself. The rest of the cast points out that the idea is ludicrous because they're clearly not the same guy. (Takuma is actually played by Manpei's real-life twin brother Shinpei Takagi)
** Yukio Yamagata and [=MoJo=], who (along with Creator/HalkoMomoi) sing Season 2's OP, are summoned by Malashina in 2-2

* {{Robosexual}}: Nobuo has a fetish for gynoids stemming from a childhood crush on [[Series/ChoujuuSentaiLiveman Colon]]. Hence why he is so infatuated with Aoi (who would be a cyborg by definition) [[spoiler:and another reason why he cannot properly fight the MonsterOfTheWeek of 2-6, a RobotGirl with a '''''very''''' {{Moe}} look]].



* SailorEarth: In season 2, General Tsu's monsters are designed in the style of previous official Sentai series monsters, even following their ThemeNaming. Also, the Deluded Rangers that appear follow the motif of WhatCouldHaveBeen (What if Dairanger ''was'' Chinaman, and what if the Gouraiger were still evil and had themselves a third member), save for the Powerful Rangers.

* WhatAPieceOfJunk: The Machine [[{{Itasha}} Itasshar]] is ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin; a normal two-door sedan (Specifically a Prius) with a garish ''Z-Cune Aoi'' paintjob. This is the team's TransformingMecha.

Added DiffLines:

* CherryTapping: The soda can trick from the SelfDisposingVillain trope is also used in the season 2 opener's retcon - except, this time, it somehow hits Malshina over the head inside the cockpit, then lands on a self-destruct button.


Added DiffLines:

** Also, the Machine Itashar has the Akibaranger logo replacing the Toyota logo on the front and back.
