* CluelessMystery: M is a character who hadn't appeared before in the story. Hope you weren't trying to guess their identity. It's pretty obvious who M is the moment he appears as well.



* SingleTargetSexuality: Miyako in the VisualNovel, to the point that in all of the endings where she doesn't end up with Yamato, she's still shown to be waiting for him even decades later.
** In most routes, physical intimacy is usually either at the very end of the route or in the after story. In Miyako's route, she immediately jumps Yamato the moment he admits his feelings for her.
** Almost every heroine can be treated like this, even the side heroines of the A series, since they aren't shown to be romantically interested towards anyone save for when Yamato stumbles onto their route. In A, Takae, Momoyo, Yukie and Haou even discuss their lives (after a few years into the future) so far and reveal to each other that they haven't met anyone they were interested in. Keep in mind that these four have their own routes, in the main game, S and A series.

* SlidingScaleOfGameplayAndStoryIntegration: Deliberate integration. To determine which route you enter in the visual novel, the player has to pick a number of events from a rotating pool of characters. On average this runs to about half a dozen events but two girls stand out. Chris, a strongly lawful good character, requires a ''lot'' of events since she's opposed to Yamato's GuileHero tendencies. Miyako, who is already crazily in love with Yamato, just needs *two* events before entering her route. [[ClingyJealousGirl Momoyo also scares away every other girl if you choose her enough times.]]

* AdaptationPersonalityChange: Takae in the anime bears little resemblance to how she is in ''S'' and even that much is tossed away in the fandisks, which don't seem to be using the same version of her character. By A-5, she's almost completely different. Whether you want to say the anime changed her personality to make her a villain or the fandisks [[CanonImmigrant changed her]] to make her more sympathetic is probably a matter of personal opinion, however.



* BornWinner: A-4 establishes that some people are just born with special superpowers, though these abilities had appeared as far back as S without explanation. For example, Bushou has the ability to generate flames naturally, Kousonshou can possess the willing or unconscious and Sigrun has the ability to heal the injuries of those she touches. Some of these abilities can be replicated and some cannot: Creation of fire is nothing special, but there are few ways to heal others with chi and they're not as effective.



* HowWeGotHere: Takae's route starts off after a plane crash strands Yamato, Takae, Dominguez and Sheila in the middle of the desert. She got too far from Cap's influence, it seems.



* InMediasRes: Takae's route starts off after a plane crash strands Yamato, Takae, Dominguez and Sheila in the middle of the desert. She got too far from Cap's influence, it seems.


Added DiffLines:

* PlaceOfPower: There are places where Takae's bad luck can be mitigated or outright neutralized, but one the rare occasions where one works she doesn't like depending on them. Capt's room and the dorm happen to be one such place both thanks to his own natural fortune and the various artifacts in his room, so she moves into it after she decides to stop running away from her problems.


Added DiffLines:

* TitleThemeDrop: Takae and Yamato go sing karaoke while on a date. Naturally, she sings a song that's very nearly the Majikoi A theme song. The lyrics are a bit different, but the tune is the same.


Added DiffLines:

* VitriolicBestBuds: Lisa and Margit used to be rivals, but now they're best friends. Margit still beats the crap out of her after finding out [[spoiler:she accidentally slept with Yamato]] and it doesn't sound like this is unusual for them.

** Margit's group were occasionally been referred to, but not much more than noting that they're all beautiful women. In A-5 they become part of a harem ending for Margit's afterstory.



** The justification for all the Hounds' sex scenes are pretty weak. By the end Margit just throws all pretense out the window and says 'Screw it, if you want to sleep with Yamato and are one of the Hounds feel free.'



* LastEpisodeNewCharacter: The Hounds are mentioned only as a group of beautiful women that went drinking with Margit. A-5 is their first and only real appearance.



* MarryThemAll: In the Yoshitsune route, he can end up with Aki, Yoshitsune or both Yoshitsune or Benkei, who had spent much of the route drinking whenever she noticed Yoshitsune crushing on Yamato.

** Apparently the Itagakis are okay with sharing Yamato. His internal monologue apologizes to Gakuto and Moro, who were not only interested in Ami and Angel but actually get along with them, though Chika's route makes it clear that it wouldn't have worked out for them anyway.
** Ending up with both Momoyo and Miyako is also a thing that can happen as a continuation of the same scenario. They even hint about bring in the other girls, Wanko aside. This doesn’t really sink in until after they’ve finished already.
** If Yamato accepts the position of Ryouzanpaku talent manager, it’s hinted that the group would perhaps be his harem. On the other hand, it cuts off the possibility of an exclusive relationship with any of them, in this case meaning Rinchuu in particular. [[spoiler:After a six year time skip, they’re on the verge of taking out the Shoichizoku and his harem has expanded to include Miyako and probably Shishin at the very least on top of Kousonshou and Bushou.]]
** One of the two Margit After endings has Yamato in a relationship with Margit while Margit agrees to let the Hounds sleep with him. This is actually the ending that the latter half of the story is built around.

* BroadStrokes: Takae's A-5 route is surprisingly unrelated to her mini route in S. However, a number of pieces were largely pulled out intact, such as danger from meteorites, getting scolded for fishing in a forbidden area and eventually having her bad luck neutralized while in the Shimazu dorm.



* CerebusRetcon: Most scenes involving [[spoiler: Touma, Jun, and Koyuki]] after clearing the Agave path. Most notably, the ending of Chris's route is the only one where [[spoiler: Touma]] opts not to continue in their family's line of work and instead decides to "live for love", a choice that the Agave route's reveals really puts into perspective.

** Takae's route rather brutally kills off any ability to laugh at her misfortune. They didn't even have to change anything about it beyond changing her reaction to it and showing the actual consequences. It's hard to laugh at someone who's writhing in agony after eating a poisonous mushroom that should have been safe.



* CluelessMystery: M is a character who hadn't appeared before in the story. Hope you weren't trying to guess their identity. It's pretty obvious who M is the moment he appears as well.



* EntendreFailure: Miyako's attempts at acting scared of the storm outside to get into Yamato's bed just inspire Chris to offer to sleep together with her. Miyako is actually happy enough with that outcome, so she might have been scared for real.



* InMediasRes: Takae's route starts off after a plane crash strands Yamato, Takae, Dominguez and Sheila in the middle of the desert. She got too far from Cap's influence, it seems.



** In the background of Yoshitsune's route is Aki flirting with Yamato while it's, you know, Yoshitsune's route. Aki gets an ending if you side with her during the election, otherwise he starts dating Yoshitsune immediately afterward. Then you get Benkei unhappy because her best friend/little sister/boss is dating the guy she likes. In this case, there's a normal ending a threesome ending.



* MarryThemAll: In the Yoshitsune route, he can end up with Aki, Yoshitsune or both Yoshitsune or Benkei, who had spent much of the route drinking whenever she noticed Yoshitsune crushing on Yamato.



* SecretRelationship: Yamato publicly admits he's dating someone in Margit After, but both of them keep it quiet that they're going out together. They don't go to great effort to hide it, though, so much as having Yamato avoid naming names.



* StrangerBehindTheMask: M's true identity is someone that had never even appeared up until the point they became a full fledged character in A-5.



* UnequalPairing: Yamato is a normal high school student. Monshiro is the daughter of a family so influential that multiple presidents and prime ministers attend her wedding. Her wedding to Yamato, that is. Fortunately, the Kuki family isn’t bothered at all and Ageha forces him to call her [[JapaneseSiblingTerminology onee-chan.]]

** In Margit After, Yamato starts getting interested in joining the Hounds. That would make Margit his boss. By this point, the rest of the Hounds that actually matter have accepted him apart from Thelma and Frank says he'd probably make a good backup for Margit as they don't have anyone else with both physical and tactical ability.

* AintNoRule: The Kuki battle royale’s only rule is that there are no rules, so Frank Friedrich brings in a missile barrage via helicopter. [[AvertedTrope He’s immediately disqualified despite his protests because no matter what the rules are]], it’s still a four man team battle in a free for all competition, so bringing in outside assistance is cheating.

** Double subverted when it comes to Kawakami Ball. Azumi basically dopes herself up with consomme soup, but after doing it a second time they check the rules and find out that not only is there a rule about it, the rule specifically says that it's ''allowed.''



* DownerEnding: InUniverse, it's noted that Koyuki's short stories end badly. In the Itagaki branch of Agave After Yamato offers to help her write one with a happier ending for Jun and Touma.



* EveryoneCanSeeIt: Hooking up with Miyako raises nary an eyebrow from, well, anyone. In fact, most of the other students at school (2-F notwithstanding) naturally assumed that Yamato and Miyako were already dating, and even before the game starts Miyako has already earned a reputation as "Yamato's girl".

** Subverted in one instance. It's noted at multiple points that Cap and Wanko would go well together and that people are kind of expecting it, but it never happens and they never show any interest in each other.



* {{Foreshadowing}}: Early in the Agave route, a first year beaten up by Wanko walks about how the Argentinian martial artist Messi was recently in town, entered into an underground fight and lost to a girl named Itagaki, after which he claimed she was on the same level as Momoyo. The girl was only a year or two older than the first year. [[spoiler:Angel is too young for that. Ami is too old. Ignore Tatsuko's lackluster battle performance early in Agave: [[TheBerserker That's not how she fights normally.]]]]

** During Wanko's route in a flashback, Yamato muses that it's good that her only living relative was obviously scum and therefore they knew not to trust him or let him get custody of her. What happens to kids who have parents who are ''secretly'' terrible? [[spoiler:Like, say, Touma?]]


Added DiffLines:

* LightningCanDoAnything. Electricity is noted to be a counter to Momoyo's self healing ability because that definitely makes sense, right?


Added DiffLines:

* PairTheSpares: Happens to Yamato in Chika's route, oddly enough. She invites him to a mixer along with Gakuto, Moro and Yonpachi with the remaining three spots filled with the Itagaki sisters. Moro and Gakuto actually do well for a change and get Ami and Angel's numbers while Tatsuko is too sleepy to cling to Yamato like normal, so he ends up on a date with Chika afterward given that both are rather annoyed at how poorly they did. They end up dating for real after finding out they have a lot in common. Meanwhile, the Itagakis get bored with Moro and Gakuto and drop them.


Added DiffLines:

* PoorCommunicationKills: Yamato and Wanko specifically choose not to tell the Family how important the upcoming tournament is for her so they won't get depressed. Miyako figures it out anyway, but Chris is as dumb as a box of rocks. [[spoiler:So she decides to enter since it sounds fun and while Wanko's improved training regimen and new move do allow her to win, she's injured so badly in the match that she doesn't even get to the end of the tournament let alone face off against Momoyo in an exhibition match.]]

Added DiffLines:

* SpellMyNameWithAnS: The fan translation of ''S'' uses the actual Chinese reading of the various names, so you see Lin Chong rather than Rinchuu and [[spoiler:Xiang Yu rather than Kouu.]]

* BigScrewedUpFamily: The Musashi clan is heavily implied to be a bunch of ambitious, backstabbing jerks. Kosugi and especially Bunta show occasional signs of decency, but with that upbringing they'll find it hard to be anything but complete pricks.



* ButThouMust: If Yamato marries Monshiro, Ageha won't accept being called anything but onee-chan, no matter how out of place it sounds.



* CampGay: Apart from Ryuuhei, a rather dangerous but still masculine rapist, all gay men are extremely campy perverts. There's one exception to the perversion with an unnamed class S first year who's actually pretty nice, but he still speaks with a falsetto, has feminine body language and wears lipstick and purple hair dye.

* HypocriticalHumor: Stacy makes fun of Lee when the latter picks a Kawakami cherry and outs herself as a virgin, but then pointedly refuses to pick one herself until Lee walks away. She then picks one and the cherry swells up just like it did for Lee, who asks her why she bothered to pretend otherwise. Stacy thinks it's lame.



* MusclesAreMeaningless: Characters like Gakuto are outclassed by the main heroines, despite their lack of visible muscles.
** Actually averted to some extent. Gakuto is actually ''physically'' stronger than all of the girls save for Momoyo, but the girls are so much more skilled than he is that it hardly matters. Momoyo is specifically said to have trained her body to a point where her muscles are tight and lean while being as strong as an intense body builder's like Gakuto. It should also be noted that all of the male fighters on par with Momoyo have huge muscles, but are also highly trained fighters. Overall, fighting skill takes much more precedence over physical strength in this universe, [[TruthInTelevision which isn't far from the truth.]]

** Monshiro's classmates don't get names or sprites apart from Kosugi, who doesn't really get a full sprite either. Still, there are a few recognizable personalities, including a girl who talks like a geisha and the one non creep gay guy in the story.



** Wanko always loses. Always. It seems to have been an accident on first or perhaps foreshadowing for her route's conflict, but by A-3 the writers seem to have embraced the joke. She shows up in Lee's route just so she can lose in the first round of a joke tournament and then disappear again.
** Throughout Benkei's route, whenever a group is envying Yamato for dating her, there's always one gay student from class E who's jealous of ''Benkei.''
** Ageha is still as arrogant but good natured as always, except when it comes to Kojuurou, who gets beaten mercilessly for the most minor of slip ups.
