* CrashIntoHello: PlayedWith. Chiyo plans to [[InvokedTrope set up a romantic meeting]] with Saiki by carrying a bunch of books and "coincidentally" bumping into him. Saiki, aware of her plan and not interested in her scheme, uses his psychic powers to dodge her attempt.

Added DiffLines:

Added DiffLines:

* CastingGag: Creator/JerryJewell getting cast as Kusuo in the dub is a Funimation inside joke, since he usually excels in roles where he doesn't have to match lip flaps (most infamously his role as [[Anime/ShinChan Happiness Bunny]]).


* MotorMouth / CharacterFilibuster: one of the animes biggest flaws, since the stpry is dialog heavy and driven in many ways, There are things like Saiki's monologue overlapping with other characters dialog or being CaptainObvious, and some characters speaking a mile a minute in their scenes (save for the occassion where its intentional, such as the Con man who sells Saiki's mother bottles of tap water).

Added DiffLines:

* EmbarrassingDampSheets: Played with in that it's not actual bedwetting, but Saiki having issues with PowerIncontinence when he was asleep until fourth grade. To Saiki's annoyance, however, his parents describe it very much ''like'' bedwetting, describing occurrences as "accidents" they had to clean up after, and going so far as to call it "onecho", a {{Portmanteau}} of ''one''sho (bedwetting) and ''cho''noryoku (psychic powers).

Added DiffLines:

** Averted during the time loop arc, where Saiki's internal monologue directly leads to [[BlackComedy Nendou getting hit by a truck]].


* MutuallyUnequalRelationship:
* This drives much of the relationship humor in the series. Some of the other students all insist on befriending Saiki because their relationships with Saiki are something else entirely to what they actually are. Saiki himself initially just sees them as school acquaintances and just wants to be left alone, although he evidently does start caring about them.
