** Even more hilariously with [[Creator/HikaruMidorikawa Kaede Rukawa]] who wants to go to America to hone his skills as a basketball player much to Coach Anzai's disappointment. It seems to him that [[Manga/SakamotoDesuGa he went to America]] minus with the basketball skills in a more hilarious way.
*** Well if Rukawa hones his basketball skills from America, well he did from the anime movie as [[Anime/KurokoNoBasuke Nash Gold,]] complete with blond hair and more evil.

** In one of the earlier chapters of Slam Dunk, Miyagi beats a delinquent half to death for slapping Ayako, declaring that no one should ever hit a girl. When he was eleven he slapped her for littering, got slapped back [[M;anBitesMan and bitten]] by her, and only reacted negatively when she hurt her leg quite badly.

* {{Fanon}}: No, it's never stated that Mitsui has to repeat his senior year at any point in the manga. Fans commonly misinterpret the last chapter (Akagi and Kogure quit the team to study for exams while Mitsui stays and feels "lonesome") as meaning Mitsui having to stay at Shohoku for another year. In 10 Days Later it's revealed he's staying for the Winter Tournament (which takes place during the second semester of the school year) so that he he can possibly get a scholarship to a university instead. Although it's possible Mitsui later repeats senior year, it's not canon.

** In a more meta-example, Creator/KiyoyukiYanada's role as Takenori Akagi is pretty hilarious if you take into account he dubbed Patrick Ewing, the player whose Akagi is based of, in the Japanese dub of ''Film/SpaceJam''.

** Notice that we're talking about ''both'' Spanish-speaking groups, though the Latin-American one is more vocal.

* HoYay[=/=]FoeYay: It's a series with lots of good-looking male characters. OF COURSE the [[YaoiFangirl Yaoi girls]] will be all over it.
** When Ryota and Hanamichi come into basketball practice with their arms over each other's shoulders, they naturally get a lot of weird looks and Gori even flatly states, "That's disgusting."
*** It becomes completely hilarious when you notice that Hanamichi and Ryouta form a friendship based on their horrible luck with the ladies, because they both have a similar situation with an unrequited love.
** Uozumi and Akagi's rivalry is just made of this. Even Inoues seems to poke fun at it later on by showing them hugging and crying on each other's shoulder with their "gorilla" faces on.
** Mitsui with Kogure, arguably.
** Kiyota's worship of Maki treads sometimes into this. In the Nagoya episodes, he TOTALLY went googly-eyed when he learned that Maki was well-known outside of their state, as if he was a {{fangirl}} in front of her favorite IdolSinger.
