YMMV: Yowamushi Pedal
  • Ear Worm: Reclimb by Rookiez is Punk'd, the first OP theme.
  • Ensemble Darkhorse: The fandom has really seemed to take a liking to Midousuji.
  • Foe Yay: The most popular ones are Imaizumi/Naruko and Kinjou/Fukutomi.
  • Hell Is That Noise: Midousuji makes the absolute worst noises, especially when contorting his body. He would fit in a horror anime much more than in a sports series.
  • Ho Yay: Prominent throughout the series.
    • Aoyagi and Teshima have an almost psychic connection and spend all of their time together.
    • Makishima and Toudou have each other's phone numbers and talk all the time.
  • Morality Pet: Onoda can be seen as this for Imaizumi.
  • Narm: The "Abs abs abs" chant from Izumida.
  • Nightmare Fuel: Midousuji is Nightmare Fuel incarnate.
  • Periphery Demographic: With fujioshi, to the point where many are surprised it's a shonen work.
  • Uncanny Valley: Midousuji's seemingly boneless movement at times.
  • Villain Sue: Midousuji can come off as this. There is never a point where he suffers more then a temporary setback, his Hannibal Lectures always are extremely effective even when such chatter should be easily ignored, and he's able to outdo every character. It wouldn't be such a problem if he wasn't such a bastard, having no redeeming features whatsoever.
