YMMV: Kongoh Bancho
  • Complete Monster: Gedou Bancho, not only does he try to have Yuu's family killed via explosion and poison if one escaped, but he tortured them while disguised as their big brother.
    • He also kills Medicine Bancho's family for daring to not equip him with metal plates in six hours
  • Crazy Awesome: Akira enters the bad guys' lair with a car held on his shoulders, and it only gets crazier from there
  • Crowning Moment of Sadness: Machine Banchou's death.
  • Cult Classic: Despite being not even mainstream in Japan, it has managed to amass a following to its unusual fights and Crazy Awesome characters
  • Ensemble Darkhorse: Hikyo Bancho is a fan favorite by most people
  • Fridge Logic: Hinako saves us the trouble when Sasori Bancho reveals her age.
  • Growing the Beard: The Five Dark Vows arc is where it drops its Bancho of the Week theme in favor of much more complicated team fights
    • The Dark Student Council, having more story development and Crazy Awesome battles than before
  • Magnificent Bastard: Hikyou Bancho. He's a Dirty Coward and Manipulative Bastard... who is a far better fighter than you'd expect, when he shows himself to be a Badass later on.
    • If L, Light,, and Lelouch donated their DNA to create the ultimate magnificent bastard, you'd likely get Hikyoua Bancho: Until Machine Banchou's appearance, he is the only Banchou able to cause Kongou severe injuries, the most impressive trick causing Kongou to be hit by a freakin' semi truck! And he manages to perform all of these tricks while making sure that there is no way for his opponent to counter attack. He later defeats an enemy by drugging his food with laxatives the morning before the fight, and afterwards, as payback for trying to kill him and his friends, drugs him again, drags him into the woods, then beats him bloody. The victim is left a hikikomori, too scared to eat his favorite foods in fear of them being drugged again. Hikyou is a Magnificent Bastard of high caliber.
  • Moral Event Horizon: Gedou Bancho disguising him as Yuu to beat up his younger siblings
    • Takeshi attempting to revive Hakai Bancho and destroying the Tokyo Tower
    • Kenpei Bancho stabbing Sasori Bancho to get Akira pissed
  • Nightmare Fuel: This Bancho from Chapter 72
  • Tear Jerker: The shot of Machine Bancho killing Kongoh- and Tsukimi is standing RIGHT THERE. Some of the blood even spills on her. Her non-reaction tugged the heart strings far more than Hinako's screaming.
    • What's worse is when Machine Bancho dies, Tsukimi still cries for him, and Machine Bancho finally sheds (oil) tears.
