* RootingForTheEmpire: Many fans actively bash Seigaku for being too overpowered or just less interesting than the rival teams. Often, merely because it's the team that [[CreatorsPet Echizen]] belongs to.

Meanwhile, Kunimitsu Tezuka is [[Series/UchuuSentaiKyuranger the Space Bu-Star, Houou Soldier]]![[note]]Coincidentially enough, Yutaka Kobayashi, Hajime's actor, almost got the part of another Red Sentai Ranger, [[Series/KaizokuSentaiGokaiger Captain Marvelous]], after he was cast after auditioning for the role, but turned it down for another project[[/note]].



* TheyWastedAPerfectlyGoodPlot: As WebVideo/YRulerOfTime points out on many ocations, the show presents more interesting characters that could have been better leads than what we get with Seigaku:

* AwesomeMusic, EarWorm: Now has its own [[AwesomeMusic/ThePrinceOfTennis page]].
** From the Musicals:
*** ''This is the Prince of Tenis~!''
*** ''Do your Best~! Do your Best~!''
*** ''Hyotei! Hyotei! Koori no Emperor~!''
*** ''On my Way! On my Way! On my waaay~!''
*** ''Fight On! Get On! Keep On! Step Uuuuuup~!''



* CrowningMusicOfAwesome: Just when you thought [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Hok0dsrNBlg Sukeeru]], [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=u4ksY9Tgoqg Koutekishu]] and [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sCpexY3it2I Honki Moodo]] were great, the movie gives you a [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VR7tF5WC08o truly amazing compilation remix of it all.]]
* DieForOurShip:
** Several characters, but specifically: Sakuno (Ryoma/anyone shippers, but Momo/Ryo and Tzu/Ryo fans are specially bad), Yukimura (Atobe/Sanada fans) and Yanagi (Inui/Kaidoh fans). To a milder degree Momoshiro (Inu/Kai too), Kawamura and Saeki (Tezu/Fuji for both).
** An doesn't have it THAT bad, but she still gets pot shots for "stringing Kamio along" and "playing with his feelings."



** From New Prince of Tennis, Irie Kanata is the only highschooler in the ranking poll, helped a lot by the fact that his voice actor is Hiroki Aiba (the thirth Fuji in the Tenipuri Musicals). Also it seems Tokugawa is shaping into another Dark Horse.

* RealWomenNeverWearDresses: [[HypocriticalFandom Reason some fans use to hail An as "the only decent female" and use her to bash Sakuno and Tomoka]], although An is [[TheFashionista the most fashion-oriented of the girls]], and the only one wearing a ''long'', flowing sundress (see her outfit in the Rikkai arc). And let's not forget [[http://sp3.fotolog.com/photo/3/44/115/sara_ctu/1203288094_f.jpg the cover of her single]].
* RescuedFromTheScrappyHeap:
** Sakuno's manga incarnation. Lots of people who don't stomach her in the anime adore her in the manga. Conversely, other people bash her YamatoNadeshiko manga self, while saying that her ShrinkingViolet anime self is [[ThisLoserIsYou a more realistic portrayal of girls her age.]]

** From the same portion, some people also think it's SoBadItsGood, since it also feels like the series is now self-aware of it's own tropes, without taking itself so seriously.

* TakeThatScrappy: For the ones who hated Ryoma, Tezuka bitchslapping him in the anime filler so he wouldn't play against Kevin is definetely this.

** Subverted later, when the OVA's start covering the Nationals arc and get praise for portraying some rather... polemic manga scenes [[AdaptationExpansion in a much more understandable and sympathetic light.]] I.e., [[spoiler: Ryoma cutting Atobe's hair when he's still almost unconscious]] in the manga is switched to [[spoiler: Ryoma having second thoughts about it, Taki offering to have his own cut hair instead to spare Atobe the humiliation... and then Atobe swiping Ryoma's razor and willingly cutting his own hair.]] Or [[spoiler: the rendition of the Rikkai matches, which also include flashbacks of the Rikkai regulars anxiously waiting for Yukimura in the hospital, remarking on their TrueCompanions bond.]]

** For the Live-Action film, even if the film adaptation did or not an AgeLift, it was an abuse of Suspension of Disbelief the casting of RIKIYA as Egate Mcleod Higaki. You can seriously reassure the guy looks 15-19? That's also applied for the cameos of the rivals, many Tenimyu actors.

** Ryoma. Some really like him as he is cute and a good player (it's debatable if this is thanks to the more sympathetic portrayal in the anime), others consider him a GodModeSue SmugSuper DesignatedHero, and there's also the small portion that just ignores him in favor of the other characters.

* GodModeSue:
** Ryoma is ''very'' frequently accused of being one of these by his anti-fans. When a 12 year old boy is already a 4 time tennis champ (in the US) it's kinda hard not to see it. But still, lots of the accusations come from rabid Atobe and/or Rikkaidai fans... who then go and make ''them'' {{Mary Sue}}s and try to pass them as BetterThanCanon.
** Other character who have been given the GodModeSue ball at one point or another are Yukimura, Fuji, Tezuka, Sanada, Atobe and Kevin Smith from the anime.
** Also there's Ryoga, who counts as a straight up MartyStu: He is Ryoma's ''older brother'' (it's explained he is adopted, because his mother died and Nanjiro took him in), he is better than Ryoma at Tennis and his first appearance in the movie showcases him doing awesome stuff (was hired by a wealthy man to play tennis on his team, played tennis against Ryoma ''on a sinking ship'', and not only survived, but he also got away on a jetski to the sunset). His popularity was so big, that not only he appeared again in the [=OVAs=], but Konomi also made him a CanonImmigrant by including him in New Prince of Tennis.



* LauncherOfAThousandShips: ...Who has ''NOT'' been paired up with either Keigo Atobe, Tezuka Kunimitsu and Shuusuke Fuji in fanfiction and doujinshi, people? Sakuno also verges on the trope, since she's often used as a PossessionSue by some fangirls.

Conversely, other people bash her YamatoNadeshiko manga self and call her a PuritySue or RelationshipSue, while saying that her ShrinkingViolet anime self is [[ThisLoserIsYou a more realistic portrayal of girls her age.]]

*** Replacing Hiyoshi Wakashi with a [[CanonForeigner new character]], [[CardCarryingVillain Egate Mcleod Higaki]], who was a [[VillainSue villain]] GodModeSue, even ''better than Atobe''. On the same page, [[ShrinkingViolet Sakuno]] was replaced by Higaki Shion, who was Egate's ''CuteMute'' sister. Also the inverted AgeLift and AdaptationalAttractiveness of [[CoolOldLady coach]] [[TeamMom Ryuzaki Sumire]] (played here by Hitomi Shimatani), making her Nanjiro's ''kohai'' and [[DemotedToExtra demoting her role to the background]].

* DudeNotFunny: Even thought the anime has added more context to some ''[[BaseBreaker "questionable"]]'' scenes in the manga, those originally were:
** Ryoma [[spoiler:shaving Atobe's head while he was unconscious]]. While it was supposed to get a laugh at [[spoiler:Atobe]] getting some HumblePie, many of the readers actually found it reprehensible coming from Ryoma, ''TheHero'' of the story.
** Koharu and Yuuji's gay jokes on court to throw Momoshiro and Kaidoh off, which a significant part of the fandom took as a very offensive take of homosexual men instead of the intended parody of the {{Fanservice}} HoYay.
