ThePowerOfFriendship: Just like its sister counterpart, friendship ends up being an important plot point for future events.
* RapidFireTyping: On both computer keyboards and the cellphone-like remote controls. Jin uses his CCM so fast that at one point he overloaded its systems, causing Emperor to lose in its first fight with Achilles. Otacross uses it later to break into the Janus Gate.



** The CCM while a strong piece of technology, has its limits, hence what happens to Emperor when Jin accidentally causes it to overload.
** Can’t win an important plot coupon in an important LBX battle? Easy, just [[spoiler: have human foot soldiers attack and steal it for you]].
** The main characters point out the absurdity of them having to fight a secret war, and that the Innovators’ plans and existence wouldn’t be able to happen unless they had members of the police or high ranking government members.



* SeriousBusiness: The LBX toys, apparently.

to:

* TalkToTheFist: How Jin wins some of his battles in Akihabara Kingdom. HilarityEnsues a lot.



* TheTeam: Two examples, nearly close to a FiveManBand. Pre Artemis, Van was TheHero and TheLeader of the group, with the others backing up his adventures and helping him find his dad. Kazu is TheLancer, Van’s best friend and loyal NumberTwo of the group, being TheCynic, worrisome, and cautious to Van’s idealism while also contrasting in their battle styles. Amy is the main female of the PowerTrio, being TheSmartGirl. While none of the members are stupid, Amy is the smartest, wise, mature and does the most of making strategies. Ryuu[=/=]Gabe is TheBigGuy of the group, knowledgeable with machinery and uses the [[StoneWall Tank Frame LBX]] but acts as a [[SubvertedTrope subversion]] due to his inability to win most of his battles. Mika is TheChick, being the only other girl than Amy, but is supportive of the group minus Ryuu and occasionally trains with them. Gouda[=/=]Hanzou joins Team Van as the SixthRanger since the Devas act as support with the Seekers.
** Configuration 2: Van remains TheLeader and TheHero to the point where he’s leads his friends against the Innovators and acts as leaders in both tournaments. Kazu remains as TheLancer. Amy still has shades of TheSmartGirl but is TheChick and the sole female now.Her knowledge coming in second to [[spoiler: Jin. When he performs a HeelFaceTurn, his intelligence combined with his experience with the Innovators becomes invaluable to the Seekers and Ban’s team]]. Gouda moves up as TheBigGuy due to being the strongest in fighting and most physically aggressive in his LBX battles. Dak is the SixthRanger, joining Van’s team 5/8ths into the original series after being defeated by Gouda and decides to join up full time to stop the Innovators, [[ItAmusedMe for his own amusement]].



** The Angra Visdas (means Underground Tournament, localized as the Catacombs Contest) is the first one, where Ban needs to win to find out who’s TheMole for the Innovators and get a pass to Artemis.
** Artemis 2050 is the biggest of the three where people from all around the globe arrive to battle for the grand prize, the Metanoia GX. The Metanoia GX also has the encryption code for the Platinum Code, making it NotJustATournament. Ban teams up with his friends while his [[TheRival rivals]] [[TheMentor Lex]], [[FriendlyRivalry friendly rivals]], and a few [[WildCard Wild Cards]] in the mix. Its set up in Blocks A to E, and the winners of each block fight it out in a all out brawl. Naturally, things don’t go well.
** The third is the Akihabara Kingdom tournament, where Ban, Daiki, Hanzou, Amy, Kazu, and Jin split into two groups to win because they need the Hacker Corps help to get the code for the Infinity Engine but they have the tournament since the Corps only follow the winner[=/=]King. The dub skipped over this tournament and just had Otacross call the Hacker Corps for backup.



** Hades in the Ranking Battles. Its much stronger and faster, and its 5th Dimension[=/=]Dimension Sigma energy balls will decimate your team unless you have the proper equipment.

''Danball Senki'' is a UsefulNotes/PlayStationPortable RPG developed by Creator/{{Level 5}}. Players assume the role of Ban, a young boy who is a fan of LBX, or Little Battler eXperience, a line of toys which are equal parts model kit and fully functioning robot. They are most commonly used to battle each other in miniature diorama arenas. One day, he is approached out of the blue by a mysterious female scientist who hands him an attache case containing a prototype LBX called "AX-00", which the scientist claims is "the key to saving the world". Unbeknownst to Ban, however, is the fact that the model is wanted by a mysterious group, and he soon finds himself being hunted by the group's masked agents.

Players assume the role of Ban, a young boy who is a fan of LBX, or Little Battler Battlers eXperience, a line of toys which are equal parts model kit and fully functioning robot. They are most commonly used to battle each other in miniature diorama arenas. One day, he is approached out of the blue by a mysterious female scientist who hands him an attache case containing a prototype LBX called "AX-00", which the scientist claims is "the key to saving the world". Unbeknownst to Ban, however, is the fact that the model is wanted by a mysterious group, and he soon finds himself being hunted by the group's masked agents.
