** Natsu's surname, Ayuhara, may be one to Kozue Ayuhara, the protagonist of ''Attack No. 1'', a volleyball manga from the late [=60s=] (conversely, volleyball being the sport Natsu practices).

Since they're speaking Japanese in universe (as mentioned with Tiffany) this trope doesn't fit.
* TranslationConvention: Despite all being Americans, Roy, Tiffany and Boman speak Japanese almost to the exclusion of their native language. Never mind that Roy's Japanophobic (at first) and Tiffany's grasp of the language is broken to the point of near-total incomprehensibility.

The first game, ''Rival Schools: United By Fate'', was released in arcades in 1997 and for the Sony PlayStation the following year. Students from all around Japan have mysteriously been disappearing, and teams of students from various high schools wind up fighting to figure out the person(s) behind it all. Players formed teams of two (which could be switched between rounds), and could call their partners in to assist them with an extra hit or energy boost (a feature borrowed from VideoGame/MarvelVsCapcom that would also later make its way into a few of ''TheKingOfFighters'' games). The PlayStation port added many {{Mini Game}}s alongside the main fighting game, as well as a character creation mode based off of DatingSim games. The latter, however, [[NoExportForYou never made it outside Japan]] thanks to how much of an undertaking it would be to translate to other languages, but all the other home version extras made it. [[NoExportForYou In Japan]], the game later got re-released with two new characters, as well as a revamped character creation mode.

* AmazonBrigade: The Seijyun High team of [[BikerBabe Akira]], [[ElegantClassicalMusician Yurika]] and [[{{Delinquents}} Zaki]] in ''Project Justice''. Zaki's all-female gang, the Ladies Team, also might count, but not all of them fit the trope's requirement of being attractive

* {{Delinquents}}: Daigo, Edge and Gan. Hell, Gedo High is nothing ''but'' a school of delinquents. Zaki and her gang in ''Project Justice'' throw female delinquents into the mix.

* YamatoNadeshiko: Seijyun Girls Academy trains its students to become this. However it's also home to an all-female [[{{Delinquents}} gang]] led by Aoi "Zaki" Himezaki. Ironically, the girl who suits the archetype the most [[spoiler:is Yurika, TheMole from the Darkside Student Council]].

* HeyItsThatVoice: If Batsu's voice and personality seem familiar, then you've probably watched or played one of the many shows or games [[NobuyukiHiyama his seiyuu]] provides voices for.

* NoExportForYou: The UpdatedRerelease of the first game, and the character creation modes in all the games. ** Also, the legal trouble with the VAs and music that's kept the games from being re-released sooner. Specifically, Capcom is required to pay them all for every release version of the game, however Capcom has lost contact with a good number of them (and some have stopped working in the industry altogether). The PSOne Classics re-release necessitated Capcom having to [[http://andriasang.com/con02g/rival_schools_psn/ contact a number of companies]] to renegotiate those rights - some of them not even being the original owners of those sounds and voices.

* [[ScrewedByTheNetwork Screwed By The Company]]: Like ''VideoGame/{{Darkstalkers}}'', it has yet to see a another release.
