* ButNotTooWhite: Despite increased awareness of skin cancer, tan skin was still in full swing as a beauty standard in this decade, as demonstrated by the likes of Carmen Electra, Creator/JessicaAlba and Creator/ParisHilton, among others.

* RavenHairIvorySkin: Many, many subcultures in this decade focused on this look, as a continuation from {{goth}} and punk, and to go against the tanned, blonde look which was popular in the mainstream at the time. This is the reverse but quite similar to the Ganguro fashion in '90s Japan, in which focused on tanned skin and bleached hair to rebel against the traditional Japanese beauty standard of white skin, black hair and modest beauty. Ganguro died out in this decade because in Japan, pale skin became even ''more'' desired with the influence of its pop singers and the rise of alternative fashion that focuses on [[{{Moe}} cuteness and innocence.]]

* EmoMusic: The music movement had slowely building in popularity throughout the 90's thanks to bands like Weezer and Get Up Kids, but in the 2000's it really broke through into the mainstream after it cross pollinated with goth and metal music thanks to bands like Music/{{AFI}}, Music/{{Thursday}}, Music/MyChemicalRomance, and Music/TakingBackSunday. It then sustained its popularity through the end of the decade thanks to Emo-Pop bands like Music/FallOutBoy, {{Panic! at The Disco}} and Music/{{Paramore}}. It evolved into the alternative rock genre of choice for most teens of the era along with Indie Pop and {{Nu Metal}}

* AllCGICartoon: Disney and other animation companies abandoned traditional animation during this decade, though towards the end of the decade there was some hope that the two might coexist. Of course, anime is stronger than ever before and still averts this trope for the most part. Furthermore, this form finally began to break down the AllAnimationIsDisney stereotype beginning with DreamworksAnimation hitting the big time with their 2001 smash hit CGI feature, ''{{Shrek}}'', becoming the first real feature animation company to challenge Disney over the long term, although it would have a period of artistic decline until it came roaring back in 2008 with a new quality commitment in 2008 with ''Film/KungFuPanda''.
** Interestingly, Stop-Motion animation has also received a re-invigoration, as it's become apparent that some aesthetics are better suited to Stop-motion than CG (one of the best examples being ''Flushed Away'', which had the character designs of an [[/index]]Creator/AardmanAnimations[[index]] character, but were CG - audiences generally said the animation looked weird because of it. It also may have something to do with genre, as darker, spookier family movies are often stop-motion - TimBurton has had mainstream success with TheCorpseBride, and 2008's Coraline was also stop-motion.

* GirlOnGirlIsHot: Homosexuality lost [[HideYourGays just enough taboo]] for pop culture to start shamelessly, abundantly mining this for {{fanservice.}} Especially on reality shows (as the first episode of reality TV parody ''WesternAnimation/DrawnTogether'' demonstrated.) This is when the SweepsWeekLesbianKiss really took off.
