* {{Trauma Conga Line}}: The Overdose era is seen as this by fans of EXO, with Kris and Tao falling ill, Chanyeol hurting his arm, Sehun injuring his hand, Kris filing a lawsuit to leave EXO, Kai collapsing from pain during a performance, Lu Han lashing out at stalkers and reports of Baekhyun and Taeyeon dating causing hate to spread like wildfire. THEN, to cap it off (hopefully), Lu Han filed a lawsuit as well, citing his health and the company's poor handling of the group's Chinese members among other reasons.

* Lyrical Dissonance - MAMA's lyrics is pretty symbolic, about people losing contacts and love with each other, while the MV is mostly about the group showcasing their elemental powers.

* {{Stalker With A Crush}} - Some South Korean and Chinese fans are the vocal minorities who follow members wherever they go. Unfortunately, many people stereotype all of EXO's fans as this.

* AbandonedWarehouse - Their Growl music video looks like it's being shot in this.



* AntiClimax - In their Star Wars MV, we see Kai, Sehun, and Baekhyun acting cool with their lightsaber, Kai waving lightsaber in the hallway with the music building up. Then the song ends and the hallway turns empty.
* ArtisticLicenseAstronomy - What is Love MV. You couldn't watch solar eclipse directly like that. Sehun and Chen hadn't learned and did the same mistake in their Pathcode teasers.
* AsianSpeekeeEngrish - The pronounciation of ''wolf'' in Wolf. Weird is that in the leaked demo version the ''wolf'' is pronounced properly.
* AudienceParticipation - EXODUS' [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=J-h0kAl1cbc&index=8&list=PL7g1Kk6J4sdhQ8nV3rluIkpE4GRtaxtq2 Pathcode teasers]], with hints available from the official [[https://twitter.com/pathcodeexo Pathcode]] twitter account.

* EiffelTowerEffect - London Eye in Kai's Pathcode teaser.



* FairytaleMotifs - Both fairy tale and fantasy motifs appear a lot as themes or references in their music, including but not exclusive to Eldorado, Black Pearl, Baby Don't Cry, and Peter Pan.



* FantasticRomance - A lot of their songs are implying this including Don't Go (with a butterfly girl), Baby Don't Cry (them singing from the mermaid POV), Wolf (the Korean title is even Wolf and The Beauty), also {{Paranormal Love}} in Angel (them as an angel loving normal girl they protect).



* IceQueen - The love interest of their song Machine, an {{Emotionless Girl}} with perfect beauty, doll-like feature, and cold smile.
* IconicLogo - Their hexagon logo and [[http://s-media-cache-ak0.pinimg.com/564x/67/5b/c2/675bc2e46f6992adade0d9feb88e1eba.jpg its]] [[http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/en/4/4e/Exo-LoveMeRight.jpg iterations]].

* NonuniformUniform: Their Growl era costumes are basically personalised school uniforms, from sleeveless jackets, neckties/no neckties and inside shirts.



* ProductPlacement - Samsung Level headset in their Call Me Baby MV, Samsung phones and headsets in Pathcode teasers. Maybe because they have a tie-in with Samsung.

** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ukAvTZbnN94 Lightsaber]], considering the Star Wars tie-in, doesn't have a lot of shout outs.

* {{Our Werewolves Are Different}} - ''Wolf''' is all about being a werewolf in love with a beautiful girl. In the Drama version of the music videos for both [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KutN84H-bg4 Wolf and Growl]], we can see that being a werewolf in EXO entails having an exotic white hair colour, a cool tattoo on your arm, glowing red eyes at certain times, and no transformation (although the usual werewolf aspects of super-strength are still there).
