* HimeCut: When they let down their hair. Suzuka plays it the straightest (literally too), and she's actually done so in certain music videos such as ''Megitsune''.

* HimeCut: When they let down their hair. hair, it resembles this style and given their genre of Heavy Metal, it makes quite the contrast with the trope's usual connotations of tradition and elegance. Suzuka plays it the straightest (literally (figuratively given her leaderness and literally too), and she's actually done so in certain music videos such as ''Megitsune''.

* AnnoyingYoungerSibling:
** Suzuka can be this to her sister, Himeka (of Nogizaka46). In particular, has a habit of raiding Himeka's wardrobe whenever she feels like it.
** On occasion, Yui's younger brother (On a radio program Yui's choice of 'death metal scream' consisted of 'get up, you lazy piiiiig!' - ending on a pitch that could stun bats).

* GenreRoulette: Fairly uniquely for a pop-metal band, the actual metal isn't tethered to a specific sub genre. It varies from BlackMetal, to MelodicDeathMetal, to {{Djent}}.

* ButNowIMustGo: Averted. Sakura Gakuin only accepts members under 15 years old, and when the current members reach this age, they must graduate. When Suzuka became 15, she left the main group, but the management made [=BabyMetal=] a separate unit, thus allowing them to be active. Yui and Moa graduated in 2015, so now all members are independent to Sakura Gakuin.

** Averted in concerts from 2013 onwards - they now have a live band wearing white robes and facepaint, composed of members of former Japanese rock / metal groups. There's a semi-regular lineup, although members will get swapped out if they have availability issues.
