* CrossDressingVoices: A lot, seeing as most of the cast are cute kids.
* DubNameChange: Apparently, the reason why the characters have English names in Europe (despite they explicitly say they're Japanese) is because the European publisher of the anime wanted to repeat the (insane) success that ''Manga/CaptainTsubasa'' got during the early 90s. Guess how were the characters of that series named in Europe.
** Averted in the Mexican Spanish dub, albeit Mamoru Endo was renamed with ''Satoru'' Endo, since ''Mamoru'' sounds like a offensive slang in Spanish.
* FanNickname:
** Enbro, Broenji, Kibro, Ichibrose... you get the point.
** One by the seiyuu themselves is Zenda (Fidio). Since he's like a complete Handa.
** Another unfortunate one invented by the seiyuu is Sakuma as Kidou's "goldfish poop".
* IKnewIt: TheReveal that Ishido Shuuji was actually [[spoiler: Gouenji Shuuya]]. The same seiyuus, the fact that [[spoiler: Gouenji's]] character design for GO wasn't out yet, and even several similar details they have.
* NoExportForYou: Europe already received the anime series, the first 5 games, and the ''Strikers'' spin-off. It's been so successful that they are ''very'' likely going to release game 6. North America, on the other hand, got the first game and the first season, and is still waiting for everything else.
* OfficialFanSubmittedContent: On the last episode of Go's first season a girl with a rainbow theme and a boy with a metalic theme were featured with their own hissatsu. The characters and the hissatsu were the winning submissions of a contest where a fan-character and a fan-hissatsu would be animated in the series.
* TheOtherDarrin: A ''crazy'' example for the Italian dub. In the anime, which was released one year before the games, Gouenji's voice actor is changed somewhere around the beginning af the arc based on the second game's plot. In the first game, Gouenji has the second anime voice... which is replaced in the subsequent chapters with his first anime voice.
* ScrewedByTheNetwork:
** It's bad enough Nintendo put an embargo on Inazuma Eleven's UK release (Never mind the fact it was LOCALISED THERE) such that the game was unavailable in the UK until the anime aired. But Creator/DisneyXD really didn't give a rats ass about the series, punting it on at 8:30am in the morning (albeit in the summer but still) and then pulling it off air 26 episodes in. If not for how they treated ''Manga/{{Naruto}}'' when they were [[Creator/ToonDisney Jetix]], this would be considered one of the most egregious examples of screwing a show over by any UK Television company.
** Even more {{Egregious}} in Latin America. ZAZ(all Latin America)[[note]]the channel died on July 2014.[[/note]], [=VivaSports=] (México)[[note]]is private[[/note]] and ETC TV (Chile)[[note]]and stays there. The series is [[GermansLoveDavidHasselhoff very popular]] there too[[/note]] are the only ones consistently airing the series with a decent schedule, also in Brazil [[GermansLoveDavidHasselhoff where the series is a huge success]]. But what about other countries's networks in the region? ''Every one of them screwed the series'', airing it at ''5:30 A.M'' in Ecuador and Perú, eventually pulling it off air; inconsistent airings and schedules in [=CityTV=] in Colombia, also pulling it off air in favor of a block with only {{Nickelodeon}} shows[[note]]but they will never put off air ''Manga/DragonBall Z'', (however in Peru it even got 'worse' for the 'anime in general')[[/note]].
* TalkingToHimself:
** Yuki Kaji plays both Ichinose and Fudou. They're [[NiceGuy wildly]] [[JerkassWoobie different]] people.
** Megumi Tano plays both Kabeyama and Sakuma.
** Ayahi Takagaki is both Kurama and Aoyama.
** Creator/HiroyukiYoshino plays Kidou, Hayami, and Wondeba. They're also [[TeenGenius wildly]] [[{{Dismotivation}} different]] [[LargeHam people]].
* ThrowItIn: Kurumada's "shupoh!" was an ad-lib the first time.
