* BreakingTheFourthWall[=/=]LampshadeHanging: Nicholas is [[{{Keet}} like a Shoujo character]]. Which is ''immediately'' lampshaded. In his very first panel.


* BadassGrandpa[=/=]OldMaster: Iwao, Kana and Yumi's grandfather. He always dresses in flower-print shirts, even in winter.



* MadeOfIron[=/=]StoneWall: put an ActualPacifist in a karate dojo, and this is what he trains up to be, so that he can defeat opponents without even needing to attack them. Hilariously, because the character is never in any matches, ''[[ForgotAboutHisPowers actually forgot about his training]]'' until Ryuuichi kept hurting himself during the match.

* {{Badass}}: pretty much everybody at the Kiryu Dojo... so, [[WorldOfBadass 90% of the entire cast]]. Initially subverted with NewMeat protagonist Ryuuichi, and then DoubleSubverted as he starts [[TookALevelInBadass taking levels in badass]].
** TheAce: Katsuhika, the dojo manager. Arguably the most handsome {{Bishonen}} in the dojo,
*** Yumi is another example, also crossing into an InUniverse MemeticBadass. She took out a shark during the beach episode, and it's implied during the winter training camp that the local bears might be terrified of her ([[TheDreaded along with every martial artist that knows her]]).

''Full Contact'' (also known in some circles as '''Furu-Kon''' or '''FL-CN''') is a 6-volume SliceOfLife Martial Arts/Sports {{Shonen}} {{Manga}} written by Creator/KabutoKitahama with art by Creator/ShinobuMinazuki. It was serialized in ''Comic Rush'' from 2004 to 2007.

The story begins when the protagonist, Ryuuichi Otawa is rejected by the girl he likes because he's weak, and she only likes strong people. That night, while watching a martial arts tournament on TV, Ryuuichi absently wonders if he, too, could become strong. His mother overhears him and promptly introduces him to Iwao Kiryuu, president of a karate dojo and boarding house, and enrolls him in it without his assent.

!!'''OSU!!''' ''Full Contact'' contains the following tropes:

* ActionGirl: Yumi and Kana, both of them the President's granddaughters. [[TheAce Yumi, in particular, is pretty much invincible]].
* {{Badass}}: pretty much everybody at the Kiryu Dojo... so, [[WorldOfBadass 90% of the entire cast]]. Initially subverted with NewMeat protagonist Ryuuichi, and then DoubleSubverted as he starts [[TookALevelInBadass taking levels in badass]].
** TheAce: Katsuhika, the dojo manager. Arguably the most handsome {{Bishonen}} in the dojo,
*** Yumi is another example, also crossing into an InUniverse MemeticBadass. She took out a shark during the beach episode, and it's implied during the winter training camp that the local bears might be terrified of her ([[TheDreaded along with every martial artist that knows her]]).
** BadassGrandpa[=/=]OldMaster: Iwao, Kana and Yumi's grandfather. He always dresses in flower-print shirts, even in winter.
* BreakingTheFourthWall[=/=]LampshadeHanging: Nicholas is [[{{Keet}} like a Shoujo character]]. Which is ''immediately'' lampshaded. In his very first panel.
* DissonantSerenity: Yumi. She never lets her YamatoNadeshiko demeanor slip, and the only indication that she's upset is usually the black BattleAura.
* MadeOfIron[=/=]StoneWall: put an ActualPacifist in a karate dojo, and this is what he trains up to be, so that he can defeat opponents without even needing to attack them. Hilariously, because the character is never in any matches, ''[[ForgotAboutHisPowers actually forgot about his training]]'' until Ryuuichi kept hurting himself during the match.
* MrExposition: Whenever there's a new karate technique to be introduced, you can always rely on Katsushika to explain it.
* OneManArmy: one of the dojo senpai challenges the 100-man Kumi-te. [[AwesomeMoments And succeeds]]. Katsuhika and at least one of the other dojo members also passed the Kumi-te previously.
* TheRival: also quite the {{Foil}} to Ryuuichi; he only learned Karate because his parents wanted him to, and hated it. Ryuuichi found this unforgivable, and then later defeated him in a match. Thus, their rivalry was born.
* RuleOfCool: InUniverse example: while he initially toyed with the idea of learning a martial art so he could try to impress girls, the reason that Ryuuichi ''ultimately'' chose to stay at the dojo and keep learning karate was because it's ''damned cool'', and because he wants to see just how far he can go with it.
* ShipperOnDeck: the number of characters that ''don't'' ship Kana x Ryuuichi by the end could be counted on one hand.
* TheStoic: multiple characters.
* TookALevelInBadass: a good half or so of the entire story is of Ryuuichi taking one level in badass after another. He still isn't a match for his assorted senpai, though, due to their having many more years of training and experience than he does.
* TrainingFromHell: averted by most over-the-top shonen standards, but subjecting total newbies to a 10km run as only the ''start'' of the daily physical conditioning probably qualifies.
* {{Troll}}: there are ''several'' trolls in this series, notably Katsushika, Fukujima, and Chiharu.
* {{Tsundere}}: Kana. She initially comes across as being more of the ''tsuntsun'' subtype, before [[CharacterDevelopment growing into more of the]] ''deredere'' type.
* WhereAreTheyNowEpilogue
