| Notes: |
|There are only two irregular verbs, kuru (to come) and suru (to do). |
The verb "suru" is probably the most often used verb in Japanese. It is used as "to do," "to make," or "to cost". It is also combined with many nouns (of Chinese or Western origin) to make them into verbs.

|Amatuka||Note that in textbooks outside of Japan する suru is usually introduced as an 'irregular verb'.|
However inside Japan it is referred to as サ変, also still can be used for some other verbs (e.g. 準ずる).
Similarly the 'irregular' verb くる kuru is referred to as カ変.
