* {{Mean Character Nice Actor}}: Ohno is mostly known for his role as a two-faced lawyer out for revenge in the Japanese adaptation of a Korean serial drama ''The Devil'', however, outside of the drama, he's anything but the character.

* {{One of Us}}: Nino mentioned once that he spends most of his money in video game stores, and is seen more than once holding a Nintendo DS.

Shoehorning. They are not characters in a story.
* {{Five Man Band}}: ** {{The Hero}}: Ohno (Was made the leader after winning a game of rock paper scissors. It is often pointed out that he acts nothing like a leader, he is however the main singer so this is somewhat justified.) ** {{The Lancer}}: Sho (Often does more leaderly-like things in Ohno's place. He acts as the group's MC.) ** {{The Big Guy}}: Aiba (The tallest and strongest member) ** {{The Smart Guy}}: Nino (The {{Trickster}} and {{Deadpan Snarker}} of the group) ** {{The Chick}}: Jun (Always looks after the welfare of the other members) * {{Four Temperament Ensemble}}/{{Four Philosophy Ensemble}}: ** Sanguine (Optimist): Sho and Aiba ** Choleric (Realist): Nino ** Melancholic (Cynic): Jun ** Phlegmatic (Apathetic): Ohno

Don't trope creators' personal life, please. This page should be about their MUSIC, not their life and supposed personalities. This page is full of Natter which is not allowed.
* {{Adorkable}}: Yes, all 5 of them. Even Jun, when he drops his cool act in favor of [[{{Not So Above It All}} crazy experiments, minor sports and delicious food.]] ** Also Jun [[http://www.veoh.com/watch/v6916463bhDxBRZ waking up his bandmates at 4 am]] back in the olden days * {{All Men Are Perverts}}: Arashi are not excluded from this. They are constantly ranking each other on topics such as: "Which member is the most lecherous", and the answers that they come up with are hilarious. Let's not forget their 'fetish talk' with Oguri Shun on Arashi ni Shiyagare, and the infamous 'oppai' (boobs) episode with Ayase Haruka on Arashi no Shukudai-kun. ** [[{{Lovable Sex Maniac}} Lovable Pervert]]: Aiba. He's always spouting off inappropriate things on-air, yet everyone seems to love him. ** {{Chivalrous Pervert}}: Nino, the smooth-talker; and Jun, the resident 'sexy/ero' guy in the group. They're always polite/chivalrous with their female guests, even protecting them from ever-perverted Ogura and Aiba -- but they have no qualms talking about perverted stuff when the topic comes to that. ** {{Covert Pervert}}: Ohno and Sho. *** Ohno is quiet most of the time, but in a brain analysis segment in one if their variety shows, it was revealed that he is always thinking of 'H' (hentai) stuff. *** Sho is always a prude on TV, yet everyone else in the band likes to hint that he's probably the most perverted out of them all. * {{Babies Make Everything Better}}: Babies + Arashi is always a joy to watch. * {{Bishonen}}: Jun has strong features, he has always said that no matter how much he disguises himself in public, he'll always get noticed.

* DatingDoSiDo: They are Johnnys. Johnnys are known for dating the same girls, and switching partners as swiftly as changing clothes. ** The Aya suicide scandal that was revealed around Nov 2010 claimed she slept with all of the Arashi members (excluding Sho). They have not acknowledged this scandal until now, preferring to avoid any questions by reporters. ** [[http://pics.livejournal.com/johnnyshos/pic/00001ddt/s640x480 The complete Johnny dating chart]], featuring all the girls that they have been rumored to. ** An [[http://i68.photobucket.com/albums/i2/Aprillis29/ARASHI_DATING_CHART.png update]] of the chart above, focusing on Arashi members exclusively.

* EverybodySmokes: Unfortunately.

** {{Instant Cosplay Surprise}}: Especially Sho, who looks best as a cross-dresser (to his perpetual dismay). ** {{Shirtless Scene}}: Plenty during concerts. ** Basically, all of G no Arashi. Nipple-exposing t-shirts, leather costumes for their air guitar sessions, white hotpants, surprise groping by tranvestites, humiliating dances, swimming classes, cosplay... the list is endless. ** Let's not forget Jun's (2007) and Sho's (2010).... ''risque'' ANAN photoshoots for the annual 'sex' edition.

* {{Heterosexual Life Partners}}: After spending the past decade living out of each others pockets the five of them are remarkably close.

* {{Lovable Coward}}: Sho is afraid of heights, but he still seems adorable when freaked out.

* {{The Power of Friendship}}: Fans are attracted to their close bonds and genuine care for each other. * {{The Scrooge}}: Nino. He doesn't go out for dinners with his juniors because he doesn't want to pay. * TrueCompanions: Arashi have described their relationship as a combination of colleagues, friends, family and spouses. * {{Tsundere}}: Jun is a Type A. ** His tsundere image is just played up most times on TV, though. In real life, tons of actors and fans have mentioned that he is a genuinely {{Nice Guy}}. ** A {{Tall Dark and Snarky}}, KIND tsundere. He's a total walking contradiction. * WhyDidItHaveToBeSnakes: Sho is extremely acrophobic, but has been forced by tv show staff and by Jun to do numerous tasks involving heights. ** Sho has had to sit inside a clear helium-filled balloon as it floated to the roof of a school gymnasium, stand on top of another helium-filled balloon (which was secured to the ground) on live television, be suspended by a harness over concert-goers at numerous Arashi concerts or fly over them on high wires, and even skydive. On each occasion Sho has strongly expressed his dislike for each of these tasks. *** Jun has said on television that while he was standing on the helium-filled balloon with Sho, he gave Sho a nudge which earned Jun an angry retort from Sho. This is note-worthy because Sho is rarely angry on the job and especially not toward fellow Arashi members. *** To be fair, all the members of Arashi have been doing a lot of high wire work for concerts. Jun even gave Sho the option to walk on stage alone while the other four members fly over the audience. Sho decided his embarrassment at walking on stage alone outweighed his fear of being suspended. However, unlike the other members who will often spin vertically while suspended, Sho will remain still. ** Sho even has trouble with some of the less extreme tasks he's asked to do for TV shows or concerts, like climbing a fake cliff or standing on a rising platform. * {{Workaholic}}: Initially Jun during Arashi's earlier years (especially around 2005 - 2007), but now it seems like Sho has also caught the workaholic bug.

* {{Ho Yay}}: Oh so much. Nino enjoys molesting Ohno at any opportunity he gets to the point where Ohno has given up trying to stop him, although he did once refer to Nino as 'the touching man'. ** Ohno and Nino have also repeatedly told everyone they're going out and Ohno ran around stage saying that he wanted to be penetrated by Nino. ** Frankly all of Arashi have been guilty of molesting Ohno and have even managed to work it in to their dance choreography. ** Aiba enjoys showering with the other members, once walking in naked into Nino's shower exclaiming 'Special Delivery.' ** Aiba has also asked Nino to stop wearing flashy underwear as it makes him 'excited'. ** Arashi also have an obsession with each other's nipples forcing each other to wear shirts with holes cut out for them to see. ** By this point every member has kissed every other member. ** Just watch the music video for Kitto Daijoubu. ** And the video for Happiness.
