Can be considered Just Here for Godzilla respecting GO? Many people states to watch GO just for the Inazuma All-Stars, specially in Gouenji's case. Epileptic Trees about him and Ishido's identity also count?
Oh, almost forgot, Lika is Ambiguously Brown?
About Last-Name Basis, what about Kazemaru? As far as this troper know, "maru" goes for male first-names, like with Toramaru. But someone (who she thinks is wrong) told her that it was actually his last name.
Kazemaru is an exception to the "maru" rule. His surname is Kazemaru and his first name is Ichirouta.
Is the trope Competence Zone enforced in the series? There are enough hints for a specific target demographic and this enforced trope is appearing quite often beside cases like this. However, this troper's information on the whole series and it's demographic is limited.
The game itself is targeted towards japanese teenagers, as well as the anime is. However a plenty of much older players, like the troper and a lot of his internet play-mates have shown interest in it as soon as it was released. Nonetheless the target audience is supposed to be teens, hence I think it's fair to use that trope.
I would like to use the "CERO: All Ages" game rating and lack of bloody violence to make a point that Inazuma Eleven is mostly aimed at children/tweens, not teens. But like mostly everything else ever, it doesn't stop anyone outside of the demographic of liking it.
