[[caption-width-right:170:The logo of the group, because like [=AKB48=], getting a picture will be [[LoadsAndLoadsOfCharacters quite hard.]]]]
The third sister group of Music/AKB48. Like the other sister groups, it currently has 47 members, which are split into two teams: Team H, Team KIV and a group of trainees.
The group currently performs in its theatre at the Hawks Town Mall in Hakata in Fukuoka, Japan.
Please list any tropes related with the girls directly in the character page.
!![=HKT48=] provides examples of the following tropes:
* AliceAllusion: In the "12 Byou" PV.
* BeautyIsBest: "Einstein yori Dianna Agron" ([[UsefulNotes.AlbertEinstein Einstein]] < Creator/DiannaAgron), which is a song about how they'd rather focus on being a beauty (Agron) than a genius (Einstein).
--> ''"More than Einstein, Dianna Agron matters/ More than test marks, I care about the size of my eyes"''
* BreadEggsMilkSquick: All of their songs are bubblegum pop and love-themed... except the rock-inspired "Shekarashika!", used for the "Majisuka Gakuen 0" series.
* CoverVersion: Their stages are mostly covers of their sister groups' stages, since they do not have their own original stages yet. They have also released a version of AKB's "Kimi no koto ga suki dakara" in Hakata dialect.
** During their Spring 2013 concert tour and for their first solo concert in Sapporo Super Dome they included units of covers of songs by other idol groups including [[Music/HelloProject Morning Musume]] and Onyanko Club.
* CrossOver: Haruppi currently holds a concurrent position with [=AKB48=]'s team A.
** Mio and Sakura also are concurrent with AKB's Teams 4 and A respectively (while Haruppi is now concurrent with Team K)
* ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin: It is based in Hakata and has 47 members at this time counting trainees.
* KawaiiKo: Their first single is basically this.
* LoadsAndLoadsOfCharacters: Currently has exactly 47 members, counting trainees.
* MagicalGirl[=/=]CuteWitch: In "Sakura minna de tabeta" the girls appear to have some sort of magic abilities.
* PinkMeansFeminine: ''Everything'' is pink in "Hatsukoi Butterfly": the outfits, the stage...
* SchoolUniformsAreTheNewBlack: As seen in "Melon Juice".
* SillyLoveSong: "Hatsukoi Butterfly" is about a little kid whose first love is a friend of her sister.
* VarietyShow: They have two: "[=HaKaTa=] Hyakkaten" and "[=HKT48=] no Odekake".
