- Tiny Student Club: The club is composed of only two or three people, and the participants (usually nice but not very popular folks) are trying to keep it afloat and gather more people. (Robotics;Notes)
- Student Club Coverup: The student club is in fact just a coverup for an organisation with some other, usually supernaturally-oriented purpose, and the protagonists are using the benefits (funding, excuse to meet after school without unpleasant questions) to keep up The Masquerade. (Persona 3, Digimon Adventure 02)
- They can be the primary setting or an important part of a work. K-On! in example mainly take place in the light music club. While Ouran High School Host Club hardly could exist without the whole club concept.
- The characters choise of club often tell something about them. Are they atlectic, are they into art, do they have an unusually interest, or are they simply just the lazy members of the Go Home Club?
- For a foreign audience it can be an exotic element, since several nations don't have any school clubs. People from those nations will notice it as something different.
- And then there are all the weird clubs without basis in reality. The mentioned host club or the amusement club of Yuri Yuri in example.

- All the main heroines in HeartCatch Pretty Cure! are members of the fashion club (with Erika as the Club President), though they had some trouble getting it started due to a lack of members. In addition, Tsubomi is also a member of the gardening club, and then there's the Student Council President...
- Hitohira focuses on two rival clubs, the Drama Club and the Drama Research Society. As in Genshiken, it seems schools are uncomfortable with overlap, and the two must compete to stay official.
- The Astronomy Club is the focus in Sora no Manimani
- Yuritetsu is about a railway club - consisting of four high school girls: Hakutsuru Tsurumi who likes riding trains, Mamiko Noto who likes photographing trains, Maron Ishizuka who likes railway station bento, and chairman Hatsune Hino who just enjoys her friendship with the others.
- All of the Mahjong clubs which take parts in the tournaments in Saki and it's spin-off SakiAchiga-hen. Some certainly weirder than other but all with the finale in the nationals as their goal.
- Sketchbook is about the Art Club.
- Katawa Shoujo:
- Mutou and Hisao try setting up a Science Club during Emi's route.
- Rin's a member of the Art Club.
- Under Shizune and Misha's control, the Student Council suffers from Club Stub.
- Lilly organises School Festival related activities in Act 1 for her class. Hanako and Kenji take part in them if Hanako's route is being aimed for.
