* CanonWelding: ''Manga/TsubasaReservoirChronicle'' combined the Plot of ''Manga/XxxHolic'', ''Manga/CardcaptorSakura'' and numerous other CLAMP works into one huge GambitPileup.
** ''Manga/XxxHolic'' is canonically in the same world 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 is the same of ''Manga/ClampSchoolDetectives'', ''Manga/ManOfManyFaces'', ''Manga/DuklyonClampSchoolDefenders'' and 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''.

GambitPileup. Along with that, CLAMP tends to use a few shared universes for many of their works.

Its ''Anime/BloodC''. Also, its story has also brief a pair of connections to the worlds world of ''Manga/CardcaptorSakura'' and ''Manga/MagicKnightRayearth'', (which in turn has one to ''Manga/MagicKnightRayearth'''s) and possibly a minor one to the world of ''Manga/{{X1999}}''.

Added DiffLines:

** Another one is "No one is straight!" in regards to Clamp treating gender as unimportant when it comes to love. Whenever someone unfamiliar with Clamp works insists a character to be straight this response is bound to pop up.

** Or giving blood, some sort of heavy sacrifice, sacrifice (especially when that focuses on the eyes in some way), or cutting off limbs.

* CostumePorn: With long, lacy ribbons being a particular hallmark in their promotional art. Oddly, it only occasionally shows up in the actual stories themselves (and almost ''never'' in animated versions due to the cost of animating all that billowing ribbon properly).

* CostumePorn: With long, lacy ribbons being a particular hallmark in their promotional art. Oddly, it only occasionally shows up in the actual stories themselves (and almost ''never'' in animated versions due to the cost of animating all that billowing ribbon properly). It's also not restricted to their female characters. Especially the prettier male characters get stuffed into elaborate and pretty outfits no one should by rights be able to move in.

The four women who make up the manga group CLAMP (Ohkawa Nanase, the scriptwriter; Mokona Apapa, the lead artist; Igarashi Satsuki, the layout designer; and Nekoi Tsubaki, the character artist) are to manga (and manga turned into anime) what Music/MegumiHayashibara is to voice acting. They began as doujinshi artists but went pro in 1989 with ''Manga/RGVeda''. The original doujinka group was actually ''ten'' members (one of whom was a guy), but six of them left (one in 1990, two in 1992, and three in 1993), resulting in the four-woman team we know today. ThatOtherWiki has a little more information on their contributions and accomplishments since in CLAMP's [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/CLAMP#Former_members article]].

* YaoiFangirl: They were originally a yaoi doujinshi circle before they became professional manga artists. It's really obvious that in all of their original works there would always be a ShipTease between two characters of the same gender as seen in their [[HoYay/{{CLAMP}} own Ho Yay page]]. They're also [[YuriFan Yuri Fans]].

* OneOfUs: They're are rather notorious for their fangirling of, of all things, ''Manga/JoJosBizarreAdventure''. Apart from their roots as shounen-ai doujinshi artists for the series (to say nothing about the rumors of ''Manga/{{Wish}}'''s origins[[note]]Shuichiro and Kohaku from ''Wish'' strongly resemble Jotaro Kujo and Noriaki Kakyoin from ''[=JoJo=]''. Jotaro/Kakyoin is a very popular pairing among yaoi fans, and CLAMP are known to ship it themselves.[[/note]]), the crew are said to have [[http://users.skynet.be/mangaguide/au228.html single handedly]] pushed Jotaro Kujo to the top of a fanart-based magazine poll in 1994. And, yes, [[http://imageshack.us/a/img145/7568/clampjojo.jpg they still draw fanart of him]]. They also made yaoi doujinshi of ''Manga/CaptainTsubasa'' and ''Anime/SaintSeiya'' before they began doing original works.
** If CLAMP draw something other than their own work, chances are that they enjoy it. Such as their [[http://chibiyuuto.tumblr.com/post/155431763706/the-4-members-of-clamp-watched-fantastic-beasts fanart]] of ''Film/FantasticBeastsAndWhereToFindThem'', ''Visual/FateStayNight'' ([[http://i.imgur.com/UBNSY1w.jpg]]) and ''VideoGame/SengokuBasara'' ([[http://chibiyuuto.tumblr.com/post/74163496430/clamps-drawings-for-sengoku-basara-this-came]]).



* 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 over a decade!
