* MaybeEverAfter: Their favorite ending...even in denouements. ''Chobits'' is probably the work which is closest to every featured couple having a HappilyEverAfter.

** ''Manga/XxxHolic'' is canonically in the same world (modern-day Tokyo) as ''Manga/DrugAndDrop'', ''Manga/{{Wish}}'', ''Manga/{{Kobato}}'', ''Anime/BloodC'' and ''Manga/SukiALikeStory''. Its story has also brief connections to the worlds of ''Manga/CardcaptorSakura'' and ''Manga/MagicKnightRayearth'' and possibly one to the world of ''Manga/{{X1999}}''.
** ''Manga/{{X1999}}'' is the sequel to ''Manga/TokyoBabylon'', and his world (also a modern-day Tokyo) is the same of ''Manga/ClampSchoolDetectives'' and therefore ''Manga/ManOfManyFaces'' and ''Manga/DuklyonClampSchoolDefenders''.
** ''Manga/AngelicLayer'' and ''Manga/{{Chobits}}'' as well are implied to be in the same continuity. Interestingly, ''Manga/MagicKnightRayearth'' happens to be a popular anime in this 'verse, making it a ShowWithinAShow.

possibly ''Manga/MiyukiChanInWonderland'' (in the last two, bizarrely enough, ''X/1999'' happens to be a [[ShowWithinAShow anime film]]; given the kind of series they are, they might or might not be canonical). Also, it gets mentioned in the background of ''Manga/MagicKnightRayearth''.

Their manga work is characterized by a highly-detailed [[Main/ShoujoDemographic Shoujo]] art style, though for budget reasons the designs are often simplified for animation. Their style underwent a noticeable change in the late 1990s when Mokona starting ceding more design responsibility to Igarashi and Nekoi. Nekoi's distinctive character designs are responsible for the "{{noodle people}}" description common in fandom. CLAMP also errs on the shojo side thematically (despite being published in an unusually wide range of magazines, including Shounen and Seinen), and thus are very prone to [[TrueArtIsAngsty drama]] and painful [[FamilyUnfriendlyAesop family unfriendly]] or {{Broken Aesop}}s. Their work also runs the spectrum with some being extraordinarily [[Manga/{{Kobato}} cutesy]] and [[Manga/CardCaptorSakura lighthearted]], others being horrifically [[Manga/{{X1999}} gory]] and [[Manga/RGVeda violent]], and others still being a mix of the two or everything in between. Being former doujinka, their work is also notable for a deliberately high degree of FanService and FetishFuel. Aside from that, CLAMP loves [[TheCameo inserting alternate versions of previous characters into other works]], a concept somewhat connected to the fact that their works [[TheVerse take place in a large, interconnected multiverse]].

* ArtStyleDissonance: CLAMP’s art style is usually cutesy with a dose of [[{{Bishonen}} good-looking men]] and can be commonly associated with {{Shojo}}. But not all of their works fall into this genre. Several examples are ''Manga/{{Chobits}}'' (published as {{Seinen}} and has existential themes), ''Manga/TsubasaReservoirChronicle'' (the later arcs went DarkerAndEdgier with heaping dose of MindScrew), ''Manga/{{X1999}}'' (published as {{Shojo}} but it deals with the apocalypse and contains violence and tragedy) and ''Anime/BloodC'' (the BloodierAndGorier spinoff of the Blood franchise).

* ViewersAreGeniuses: Only for their non-Japanese fans. ''Manga/{{Chobits}}'' assumes that the audience has some knowledge of how information technology has a divergent development path in Japan compared to the rest of the world, and awareness of some social issues facing the country. ''Manga/Gate7'' requires readers to know their history on the Japanese Sengoku era.

* DreamWeaver and DreamWalker: Character that have powers related to dreams appeared as earlier as ''Manga/TokyoBabylon''. Ever since ''Manga/{{X1999}}'', and later cemented by ''Manga/TsubasaReservoirChronicle'', prophetic dreams or walking into other people's dreams became a standard yet valuable power in their future works.



* SeriesHiatus: They're the masters of this trope as [[http://anime.astronerdboy.com/2014/06/clamp-hiatus-masters.html#.VFbkaDSUfVo noted by this blogger]]! The most infamous example of it is ''Manga/{{X1999}}'' which remains on a hiatus for nearly a decade!

** Its likely their concepts of "soul-mate and soul love" "transcending" body and gender, and even their use of {{Reincarnation}} are also twisted forms of inspiration from this mysticism, [[MemeticMutation although that has nothing in common with the Hindu concept of soul]].
