* AnticlimaxBoss - A match between [[spoiler:Musashino and Nishiura]] is foreshadowed early on, but when the two teams finally face each other [[spoiler:Tajima hits Haruna's pitch without even trying, and Hanai tops it off with a homerun.]] No wonder some fans say Higuchi is losing her touch.
* CreatorsPet - Haruna, and the rest of Musashino High School. To the extent that Higuchi has been giving them 50:50 attention with Nishiura since 2008. Just when the fandom thought it was over, [[spoiler:the fall tournament began and guess who Nishiura's first opponent is.]] It gets even worse when you realize Higuchi went into loving detail about the Kasugabe and ARC matches, and then [[spoiler:completely glossed over Nishiura's three newcomer's tournament matches so she could throw them into a match against Musashino]]
* DesignatedVillain -- Mihashi's old teammates, [[OpposingSportsTeam Mihoshi High]] and to a lesser extent, Tosei.
** For Mihoshi, ItsPersonal between all of them and Ren, including a KickTheDog moment from their captain. Kano is weird about it, since Ren was forced off for his benefit and with his approval, because he's serious about being the top pitcher. However, while the rest of the team hate Ren, he apparently still wants to be friends because he knew Ren from before the team. He also believed Ren had actual talent and they had misjudged him -- which just makes him even more determined to win their pitcher's duel.[[note]]And still be friends.[[/note]]
** For Musashino, ItsPersonal between Haruna and Abe.
** On the whole, between everyone but these four guys and everyone else, there are no evil rival teams. [[spoiler:Even Mihoshi and Tosei are very gracious in defeat.]]
* DieForOurShip: The backlash among Japanese yaoi fangirls when Shinooka was revealed to [[spoiler:have a crush on Abe]] was incredible. They have taken to writing her name as 死の岡 and 死のーか, using the character for "death."
* EarWorm - "Oh boy meetsu GIIIIIRLLL, or a boy meets YUME!"
* EstrogenBrigade - The show has an overwhelming number of female fans.
* FoeYay: Abe and Haruna.
* HoYay -- The tough love relationship between Ren and his catcher, Abe. {{Yaoi Fangirl}}s {{Squee}} at the scene where they hold hands in a bush, and Abe assures Ren that he "likes [Ren], more than just as a pitcher". The lack of female love interests also feeds the SubText, as the coach is [[ChristmasCake much older than the team]], and the manager claims to have no romantic interest in any of the guys in the team (later revealed to be a lie).
** LampshadeHanging:
-->'''Ren:''' I - I - like you too!\\
'''Abe:''' uh, great, thanks... (thinks:''Did it sound that creepy when ''I'' said it?'')
** No mention of [[OneHeadTaller Hanai and Tajima]]? Or Sakaeuguchi and Suyama after the latter's heartfelt, hand-holding encouragement during the middle of a game?
** To add fuel to the fire, several of the boys have decided that ''tickling'' is an appropriate way to relax each other before going up to bat.
** The HoYay extends to the members of the [[OpposingSportsTeam other teams]]: Takase of Tosei [[spoiler:breaks down in tears after losing to Nishiura because he "wanted to be able to play more together" with the catcher, a third-year who's graduating]], and ARC has Ootagawa's inexplicable devotion towards team captain and catcher Yoshida.
* Just about any two guys in the series can be shipped together fairly well, including some cross-team romances such as Abe x Haruna and Rio x Tajima.
* {{Moe}} -- Mihashi is an example of the rarer male version.
