* DieForOurShip: Initial reaction from the fandom towards Saaya Agata was bad (she is a parody to the {{Tsundere}} character archetype, for starters), but it got worse when she developed a crush on Bossun, the ObliviousToLove hero who wouldn't notice that Himeko also had a crush on him (whose relationship was beyond "LikeAnOldMarriedCouple" status). [[spoiler: Saaya later confesses her feelings to Bossun (and she hinted them to Himeko as well, due to the School Trip Rhapsody arc's [[FreakyFridayFlip circumstances]]), and she eventually gives up when she finds out that he gives a "special" attention to Himeko that he can't notice besides their friendship.]]
* EnsembleDarkhorse:
** Surprisingly, Switch's Bossun drawing, a non-character that has its own popularity inside the series, made up to have a place in the Top TEN of the first Popularity Poll.
** The series has a lot of non-characters that are popular with the readers, as the second popularity poll revealed. Among the other notable ones are Anthony (an action figure from "Slender", a tokusatsu-parody show) and Tanabe-kun (a "character" that was created by Bossun and Tsubaki in their attempt at fixing the writings in a banner).

EnsembleDarkhorse: Several non-characters are so popular they ranked well in the popularity polls, which gets lampshaded in the popularity poll chapters when the characters are flabbergasted to learn about how popular they are. These include:
** Surprisingly, Switch's Bossun drawing, a non-character that has its own popularity inside the series, made up to have a place in which was ranked 4th (aka after the Top TEN of main trio and more popular than ''Tsubaki and Agata'') in the first Popularity Poll.
** The series has a lot of non-characters that are popular with the readers, as the second popularity poll revealed. Among the other notable ones are Anthony (an action figure from "Slender", a tokusatsu-parody show) and -- he got 13th (Bossun was only expecting him to be about 75th).

** Soujirou Agata and Michiru Shinba's relationship. They have been best friends since they started High School, and Michiru ofteen worries about Soujirou's well-being when he focuses his attention into an obsession, such as that time he thought there was a LoveDodecahedron involving his little sister, Saaya. The anime, in fact, {{ship tease}}s them a ''lot'' as it uses [[AdaptationDistillation scenes that are nonexistent in the original manga]].

** "Concentration" is a piece from the soundtrack that is absolutely wonderful and it's used whenever Bossun is in "Concentration Mode". That is partially due to the fact that the animation wouldn't work if Bossun was just sitting in there thinking and connecting points he missed at simple sight. InUniverse, it would be seen as boring and uninteresting, too.

* FriendlyFandoms: With ''Manga/{{Gintama}}'' (although they borderline into FandomRivalry). Both series have been constantly compared on and off from time to time ever since ''Sket Dance'' was first published, due to their similar premises (resolving problems through an Odd-Jobs Shop) and comedy (BokeAndTsukkomiRoutine, BreakingTheFourthWall, etc.), especially since Kenta Shinohara may have been inspired by ''Gintama'', at the time he was working as an assistant to Hideaki Sorachi. However, both series play off each other's weaknesses and strengths in their own styles, according to their narrative storylines and characters' relationships.

[[spoiler: Until it is showed in "Switch On" that he developed it (and his pop culture references' knowledge) when he was a [[{{hikikomori}} shut-in]], as a way to maintain his mind busy at the time he was still mourning the loss of his younger brother.]]

** Soujirou Agata and Michiru Shinba's relationship. They have been best friends since they started High School, and Michiru often worries about Soujirou, even more when he becomes obsessed into something and he stops working like his usual self, such as that time he thought there was a LoveDodecahedron involving his little sister, Saaya.

** The UndyingLoyalty that Kiri develops towards Tsubaki sometimes goes into exaggerated extremes, where he is agreeing with him in anything he proposes, saving his own butt, and even when he stands ''too'' close to him. Eventually, Tsubaki gets used to it.

* BrokenBase: The manga ending, in regards to what happens to [[spoiler: Bossun and Himeko]]. Take account that the series played a ''lot'' of ShipTease towards them, and there are ''even'' arcs that fueled it (considering their {{Backstory}})... especially towards the last chapters. When he [[spoiler:leaves Japan, Himeko goes to the airport and finally tells him that she likes him. Bossun's response? He tells her that he likes her too... [[LoveYouAndEverybody and the rest of his friends.]]]] Definitely unexpected by any fan of the ship. Some others (shippers or not), however, think this was something natural from him, giving his ObliviousToLove personality.
