Okay, the time has come. Up until now, I have always just made up rules that go with the series. This time, I want to make it official. I want to keep a record of the basic laws of Prince of Tennis. You know, those things in the story that will always happen and never change. Post comments and remind me what to add to this list:

4- Every move from every character is above Ms level, yet everyone is impressed in every single match.
5- Any power vs power match should be like Saint Seya with tennis racquets.
6- Tezuka is able to kill dinosaurs (this one is really important).
Data Tennis cannot work against the very top players. You can probably find a better way to word that one Fayte. It has its limits.
Akutsu can hit any kind of offensive shot from any physical position.
(Rule #4 - The skill of a doubles team (united ability) is determined by the combination of both players' individual ability and doubles ability (IA1 + DA1 + IA2 + DA2 = UA))
I don't agree with that one. It's just a chart and it has nothing to do with the series (no one in POT talks about UA, IA, etc...). It's not even accurate, it's just maths.
-In a complete synchro vs synchro match, the pair with the best stats will be the winner.
Technique counters power: In real life POT just messed things up. You can havae a really high technique, but if you don't have any power, much like Irie, and you're up against a player whose power is miles away from yours (example Sanada vs Irie), technique should not be able to work, as if it's a realy strong shot no matter how technique you have, if your power is much weaker you won't return it, never.

you forgot another ... the victor is ATOBE! lol (katsuno wa hyotei, katsunowa atobe!
also what does Ms mean?
Not sure if it's really a rule, but
-Tezuka Zone is the only skill that is absolutely confirm that it cannot be copy with Muga.
Also, @ Number 3
Yanagi, Jackal, Bunta, Yukimura, Krauser doesn't improve in their second match. Granted, Bunta DOES improve in his third match, though.
-A move that is use for the first time ever will normally work.
I believe the only exception to that is Atobe's mysterious move against Irie.

I do believe Yanagi is better than Inui in IA. It isn't completely off, because the series still has not disproved my data tennis interpretation of why Inui was able to do what Renji couldn't. I do not believe it is because Inui has a higher IA, but because Inui had a lot of exceptions and handicaps going for him. But time will tell who is correct. Regardless of where they both stand, equal or not, my chart is still accurate.Originally Posted by Airgrimes
I didn't say second match. I said "more than two" meaning third match = improvement.Originally Posted by Ken
Yanagi couldn't defeat his teacher. Inui could defeat his teacher.
Yanagi was helpless against Mitsuya, Inui overcame Mitsuya.
I reckon Inui and Yanagi are equal. Going by what we have seen in SPoT, I see no reason what so ever that indicates Yanagi > Inui.
But that doesn't belong in this thread. We'll take this to Tier thread again later on in the year.
It's probably the most controversial issue in PoT.
But Marui improved in his second match though.
@Ken he came out with Temporal Difference Hell in the Nationals.
Seigaku didn't know about it, when Oishi says to himself, its either Iron Pole or Tightrope next from Marui, it indicates that Marui had only two techniques prior to the Nationals.
Example, GP VS Marui/Jackal.
