• Broken Base: The 2013 Team Shuffle made many fans angry. The two main reasons were Matsui Rena's transfer to Team E (many fans argued that thanks to that Jurina'd have more spotlight in the team than before) and Matsumura Kaori's announcement that she'd be a lifetime honorary trainee.
  • Contractual Purity: Momona Kito was hit hard by this when Weekly Bunshun published photographs of her drinking underage, making out with Yuya Tegoshi, and spending the night at his house. Eagle-eyed fans were also able to connect the partying incident to Kito cancelling a fan event at the last minute when they noticed she was wearing the same outfit in her blog post as the tabloid photographs.
  • Die for Our Ship: Whoo boy, the WMatsui shippers...
  • Ear Worm: "Aishiteraburu!"
  • Face of the Band: Jurina and Rena, most notably.
  • Les Yay: Everywhere.
  • Older Than They Look: Kinoshita Yukiko.
  • Signature Song: "Pareo Wa Emerald".
  • The Scrappy: Jurina, especially during SKE's early years for featuring prominently in AKB48's singles since 2009 despite being a newbie.
    • As of recently, though, Jurina has become less of a scrappy as she gains popularity.
    • Kitahara Rie, during her period in SKE. However, she was accepted by her teammates and their fans later.
  • Younger Than They Look: Matsui Jurina.
