  • Awesome Music:
    • "Concentration" track from the soundtrack is absolutely wonderful to the moment where Bossun is in "Concentration Mode". That is partially due to the fact that the animation wouldn't work if Bossun was just sitting in there thinking and connecting points he missed at simple sight. In-Universe, it would be seen as boring and uninteresting, too.
    • "Cool & Crazy", when stuff is going in favor of the Sket Dan.
  • Ensemble Darkhorse:
    • Surprisingly, Switch's Bossun drawing, a non-character that has its own popularity inside the series, made up to have a place in the Top TEN of the first Popularity Poll.
    • The series has a lot of non-characters that are popular with the readers, as the second popularity poll revealed. Among the other notable ones are Anthony (an action figure from "Slender", a tokusatsu-parody show) and Tanabe-kun (a "character" that was created by Bossun and Tsubaki in their attempt at fixing the writings in a banner).
  • Face of the Band:
    • Dante is mostly the only one that would be remembered from his Visual Kei band JardiN.
  • "Funny Aneurysm" Moment: Chiaki, "Captain", in episode 4 wants to win the Pelollipop contest because her little brother said the doll looks like his deceased mothernote .
  • Moe: Obaanyan, a character created for the Sket Dan's reimagined version of Momotaro, thanks to Switch's suggestion of changing the old foster mother of the protagonist to someone younger, who is also a half cat.
  • Narm Charm: The show can be really cheesy at times. And yet, it somehow works.
  • Relationship Writing Fumble: A chapter in the series, "Brother and Sister", explores the ambiguous ties between Bossun's not-blood sister, Rumi, and his biological twin brother (who had been separated at birth), Tsubaki. They were supposed to see each other as brother and sister, but the way their relationship develop is almost exactly like a romantic set-up of romance mangas (i.e. they have a movie "date", hung out together the whole day, and it ends with Tsubaki saving Rumi from falling off a bunch of stairs).
  • Ugly Cute:
    • The mascots of "Can Mommy Come Too?", where Remi Onee-san was host... the kids love them, however.
    • Roman's failing attempts of "drawings".
    • Bossun whenever he makes his "nervous face".
