* CreepyDoll: The Duke's final appearance is in Bowie's music video for Love Is Lost.... as a life-sized wooden doll. The Duke can still move and speak in this form, at one point even taking a drag from his smokes.

* DistantFinale: In the music video for "Black Star" (which was off the last album Bowie ever made) [[spoiler: we see the long-dead corpse of an astronaut being found on an alien world, which is worshiped by the natives.]]

Bowie's first hit (though not his BreakthroughHit, which would be 1972's "Starman") was "Space Oddity", a 1969 number that told the sad tale of ill-fated astronaut Major Tom. In 1980, the ''Music/ScaryMonstersAndSuperCreeps'' song "Ashes to Ashes" would expand upon this story, not only by continuing it but suggesting that it was more complex than originally presented. The remix of ''[[Music/{{Outside}} 1. Outside]]'''s "Hallo Spaceboy" (1996) featuring the group Music/PetShopBoys includes a bridge that mentions Major Tom once more. Finally, Major Tom [[ShrugOfGod possibly]] appears [[spoiler:as a long-dead corpse]] in the music video for "Blackstar," from the 2016 album of the same name, wherein [[spoiler:a cult springs up over the worship of his bejeweled skull.]]

* WeightWoe: Bowie was seriously anorectic as the Duke and lived off [[BreadEggsMilkSquick red pepper, milk, and cocaine]]. He is reported to have weighed as little as eighty or ninety pounds during this time.

* BishonenLine: Partially, the Duke is the handsome perversion of Bowie's Young Americans act, who did kind of a AffectionateParody of soul and funk music, calling it Plastic Soul. The Duke's version of funk is plastic soul filtered by clouds of cocaine.

* {{Cloudcuckoolander}}: A decidedly dark example, Bowie's lyrics for the Duke are infused with references to occultism, fascism and religion, TVC15 is a bizarre story about a TV that eats girlfriends.
