* AlternativeDance: TropeCodifier along with New Order, and probably one of the genre's best-known and most influential artists (up there with Music/NewOrder, Music/{{Erasure}}, Music/PetShopBoys, Music/SaintEtienne and Music/{{Garbage}}.)

* BrokenAce: Gahan and Fletch. This was most true in the early '90's when Gahan's drug problem culminated in him nearly dying of an overdose, and Fletch's continuing problems with clinical depression resulted in a full-fledged nervous breakdown. They both seem better-adjusted and happier these days.

Added DiffLines:

* NobodyLovesTheBassist: While Depeche Mode doesn't have a bass player, Fletch does play most of the basslines with his keyboards and is the ButtMonkey of the band, so he fits this trope.

* AudienceParticipationSong: "Everything Counts" is their longest-standing. Dave Gahan also loves to get concert crowds to sing the choruses to the band's other songs.

* [[LesserStar [=Garfunkel=]]]: According to Fletch himself, he doesn't really do anything and is still there just because he's friends with Dave and Martin.
** Believed to be a factor in Alan Wilder quitting the band. Wilder did the arranging, the re-mixing/arranging for live shows, the most live keyboard playing, and some backing vocals. On top of not getting the credit he should have (to casual fans, he was essentially the handsomer background keyboard player), he was being paid only slightly more (since he did write a few songs) than Fletch. To this day, Fletch still has animosity towards Wilder for something and claimed that he refused to make another album with him after the volatile "Songs of Faith and Devotion" sessions. Gahan (Always a supporter) and Wilder are still friends and Gore has acknowledged that Wilder was under-appreciated, but Fletch always seems to do verbal gymnastics to avoid praising him.
** When the band was on hiatus (feared by some to be permanently) after the Exciter Tour, Gahan, promoting his first solo album, constantly took shots at Fletch. In the past, it was in good humor, like the jokes about getting him a fax machine so he has something to do onstage, but Gahan was relentless during this period.
