* GuestFighter: Sakura Kasugano from ''StreetFighter'' shows up in the first game. She doesn't figure into the main storyline very much, but she is said to be good friends with Hinata and Natsu.
** Hilariously, this game, outright, explains that the reason she can get away with being in StreetFighterAlpha's sequels is that several schools in her area of Japan practice similar attitudes to the actions of their school clubs as {{Anime/Ranma}}.

* [[EveryoneCallsHimBarkeep Everyone Calls Her Iincho/Chairperson]]: The ClassRepresentative of Taiyo High is never given a name, and prefers to be called Iincho (Chairperson in the English translations).

** In the sequel's story mode for Taiyo High, you might have a chance to solo battle Kurow. You only have a single round and just one ally for assistance, and he has a lot of health. It's almost impossible to beat him, but the story continues if you lose.



* IKnowMaddenKombat: Pretty much the shtick of the Gorin High characters. At least the ball sports (baseball - Shoma, volleyball - Natsu, football - Roberto, tennis - Momo) make sense; but taken to very ridiculous levels with a character (Nagare) who fights with ''swimming'' moves!

** In the sequel's story mode for Gedo or Seijyun High, they have to convince a BrainwashedAndCrazy Daigo to calm down. Failing to do so leads to a BadEnd.



* JokeCharacter: Chairperson, with the [[LethalJokeCharacter glaring exception of her assist]].
** This is probably because she uses Dan Hibiki's own Saikyo style... and learned it from weekend correspondence courses, meaning she isn't as skillful at it as him...

* PantyShot: Hinata, Kyoko, Sakura[[note]]Although, of course, she [[ModestyShorts wears spats under her skirt]], anticipating the issues that come with wearing a skirt to a fight.[[/note]], Natsu and Tiffany's alternate costumes in the first ''Rival Schools'', Momo and Yurika (although hers is more of a Panty''hose'' Shot).

** Akira Kazama gets her name, kung fu fighting style, and love of motorcycles from a character in ''Manga/Kenji''.
** Gan is basically Gorilla-Imo from ''Manga/DokonjoGaeru'' crossed with a friend of Akira's from ''Manga/Kenji''.
** Tiffany's hairdo and [[{{Engrish}} manner of speech]] is very similar to Swan White's in ''Anime/GaoGaiGar''. Supposedly, the creators were big on the show, which is also why Batsu and Hinata have Guy and Mikoto's voices.

''Manga/{{Kenji}}''. Being a kung fu manga, it is also why she fights in that style.

* CanonImmigrant: Much like Karin and Evil Ryu in ''Franchise/StreetFighter'', Hayato Nekketsu was an original character in a manga spin-off (a short for a mook, ''Shiritsu Justice Gakuen Gaiden'') who got added to the games. But unlike those two, he is not owned by Capcom, making him partly a GuestFighter. He appears in at least one other work by his creator, Kazuhiko Shimamoto.

* ShoutOut: Helmetless Akira's team-up attack in the original game is copied from ''Anime/NeonGenesisEvangelion'''s infamous episode "Both of You, Dance Like You Want to Win!" (you know, the one where Shinji and Asuka take learning teamwork so far that he even dresses up as her).
** Natsu's surname, Ayuhara, may be one to Kozue Ayuhara, the protagonist of ''Manga/AttackNumberOne'' (conversely, volleyball being the sport Natsu practices).

to:

* ShoutOut: The game itself is a send-up to old fashioned fighting high school mangas. Plenty of other references abound, mostly also to older mangas.
** Natsu's surname, Ayuhara, is from Kozue Ayuhara, the protagonist of ''Manga/AttackNumberOne'' (conversely, volleyball being the sport Natsu practices).
** Shoma's absurd baseball moves come from the manga, ''Samurai Giants''.

* WrestlerInAllOfUs: Boman actually does a [[{{Kinnikuman}} Kinniku Buster]] in his Team-Up Attack. That aside, most grapples are wrestling-inspired; even little Momo can bust out a piledriver!
