* RavenHairIvorySkin: All the women that appeared in "Show Me The Meaning Of Being Lonely" have pale skin and jet-black hair. It works really well to the video's DeliberatelyMonochrome.
* RescueRomance: In the music video for "Show Me The Meaning of Being Lonely", Nick and his estranged lover get back together after he rescues her from being ran over by a bus (as a homage to a fan who died being run over by a bus on a way to one of the Boys' concerts).

* HollywoodAccounting: The boys nearly filed for bankruptcy in 1998 after being in debt from their label. Part of the reason they (and their Friendly Rival *NSYNC) split from Lou Pearlman was because of shady accounting and management.

* EntitledToHaveYou: "I'll Never Break Your Heart", "All I Have To Give" and "More Than That" can have this vibe, though the point of all three is to encourage the love interest to leave or move on from an explicitly unhappy relationship.

* PerpetualFrowner: While they are capable of being light-hearted and fun, such as the above page image, their video for "Just Want You To Know", [[spoiler:and their DancePartyEnding cameo in ''Film/ThisIsTheEnd'']], the general perception of them is that they're quite stoic and serious, in contrast to their chart rivals NSYNC, who were seen as FunPersonified.

** Recently, during his (yet to be aired) guest appearance on Brazilian television show ''Legendários'', [[https://twitter.com/anacarla82/status/752955455668912128 Nick reenacted the "Quit Playing Games" example]] alongside host Marcos Mion. Unsurprisingly, the women in the audience went wild.
