  • Anvilicious: Not that this is bad.
  • Ensemble Darkhorse: Fukunaga
  • Crowning Music of Awesome: In the drama, the Capsule song "Flash Back" starts up every time Akiyama ends up turning the tables. The movie covering the finals of the tournament may get another one with its theme song, "Love or Lies."
  • Complete Monster: Yokoya... apparently, the only despicable thing Hitler did was to commit suicide when only halfway to his goal. In fact, Hitler is his role model.
  • Magnificent Bastard: The whole story is Sorting Algorithm Of Magnificent Bastard.
  • Narm: Yokoya screaming in agony at the Season 1 finale of the J-Drama. The many over-the-top facial expressions in the manga are rather hard to take seriously as well.
  • Moe: Nao can be a far more subtler example of this as the series continues, particularly during the Second Revival Round.
  • Villain Decay: Definitely averted so far.
  • What an Idiot!: Nao, in almost everything she does at first. Fukunaga comments on this at the end of the first period in the fourth round.
    • "This girl really is...a flaming idiot."
  • The Woobie: Abe. Beaten by her stepfather and told right to her face by her own mother that she shouldn't have been born.
