YMMV: Baka and Test: Summon the Beasts

  • Awesome Music:
    • "Baka Go Home".
    • Every time Miharu clinging to Minami, this classical high paced music is actually a good one.
  • Crazy Awesome:
    • "Ironman". Some teachers have special characteristics, such as different summoning ranges, faster test-checking speeds, and lenient test-grading... but his is an extraordinary ability to move around such that he can appear everywhere: classrooms, ventilation ducts, public bathrooms... you name it! His skill is even mentioned in the show as he follows Kouta/Voyeur in his Dynamic Entry through a closed window to allow a key battle.
    • Ironman is the wild card in the show, as he can allow battles in any subject.
    • He's surprisingly empathetic, intuitively understanding why Mizuki needs to alter her 2nd placement test. He also correctly guesses that there's an important reason for Yuuji and Yoshii's hijinks. See CMoA below.
  • Designated Hero: Most of Class F. Minami is a violent Tsundere, Yuji is a slacker, Kouta is a future sex offender, and Himeji devolves into Minami 2.0.
  • Dude, Not Funny!: Some of the ways the girls abuse the guys, especially Shouko, would either cause them to get hit with restraining orders and/or jail if it happened in real life.
    • Akihisa's constant poverty is Played for Laughs, In real life, if a case like this with a minor living on their own, unable to really take care of themselves was sighted, they'd be taken away by social services.
    • The sheer amount of homophobic humor.
  • Ear Worm:
  • Ensemble Darkhorse:
    • Hideyoshi.
    • The FFF Inquisition as well.
  • Fan-Preferred Couple: Among all of Aki's possible love interests, Hideyoshi is the only one that has yet to physically assault him. And as of the later light novels, the feeling is apparently mutual. To put it into perspective; even some non-yaoi fans want these two to get together.
  • Foe Yay: A lot of people from Class A and Class F are usually shipped together.
    • Yuuji and Shouko. This is pretty much the only canon example for the fact that they're from different classes whose war with each other is central to the story.
    • Kouta and Aiko. Kouta may deny it at first, but his body language certainly won't.
    • Akihisa and Toshimitsu/Yuuko. Although the latter was only recent.
  • Game Breaker:
    • Mizuki, as far as Class F students go, having the brains of a Class A student.
    • Fighting Kouta in a Health and PE match is tantamount to suicide. His scores are so high in these subjects he can easily defeat Shouko, a Class A student and the best one in their year. Kouta actually kicks this Up to Eleven with the reveal that he has a score higher than the teacher of said subject. Too bad he can't pull that in all subjects.
  • Hilarious in Hindsight:
  • Idiot Plot: Mizuki getting sent to Class F because she had a medical emergency during the exam. Rather than taking the test again, she automatically fails.
  • Informed Wrongness: Yoshii in episode 10 of the second season. While he may have somewhat deserved the harsh treatment he got, he isn't the only one at fault. He may treat Minami like one of the guys, but that's partly because she's always beating him up, at times with only the slightest provocation. Not to mention, Miharu is one of the last people to tell Yoshii that he doesn't treat Minami well. Especially since she gave the What the Hell, Hero? speech right in front of Minami, and reduced her to tears.
  • Moe:
    • Hideyoshi is the king/queen of trap moe.
    • Sweet and cuddly Himeji-chan.
    • If you want Yandere Moe, you've got Shouko.
    • Hazuki Shimada is adorable, especially when she goes "Baka Onii-chan".
    • Even Yoshii in a meido outfit, much to the amusement of Himeji and Minami.
  • Jerk Sue: Shouko.
  • Just Here For Hideyoshi: A good portion of the fanbase.
  • Magnificent Bastard:
    • Kyoji Nemoto.
    • Considering recent events, Takashiro of Class 3-A is starting to shape up as one.
  • Memetic Mutation: From Season 2, Episode 8:
    Minami: Watashi...
    Akihisa: What a shit?
  • Memetic Sex God: Hideyoshi.
  • The Scrappy:
  • The Woobie:
    • Abusing Yoshii is funny and sad at the same. And then there was that one time he took that history exam and got a zero because he wrote Alexander the Great where his name was supposed to be.
    • Shouko gets a rare one in episode 7 of Season 1, when she runs off stage in a wedding dress after getting mocked by another couple that she's got a stupid dream of wanting to be Yuji's bride. Yuji decides to have a little "talk" with said couple later on, and presumably beats up the guy, as he looks like he's been in a fight after he catches up with her later on.
