* {{Bishonen}}: Patrick after his weight loss now looks slim and fairly feminine. Even before then, he still had feminine traits that kept evoking the StupidSexyFlanders from the fandom. Pete can back us up on that.
** Pete Wentz, from 2005-2009. There's a reason he got pegged as the "teen heartthrob of the band", it wasn't even intentional on his part.

** Let's not even get started with their Young Blood Chronicles series of music videos. Someone should [[IncrediblyLamePun give them a hand]] for keeping up with this trope for so long.
** When you make a cheesy basketball themed music video for a song about an unhealthy relationship, then make another video for it focusing on pug doggy shenanigans, then team up with Demi Lovato to kinda remake an *NSYNC music video? it's safe to say your band finds this trope [[IncrediblyLamePun Irresistible]].

** "Hum Hallelujah" is also about Wentz's suicide attempt, and similairly upbeat.

* WholePlotReference: The video for the version of "Irresistible" with Demi Lovato serves as a Whole Plot Reference and a psuedo-sequel to Music/{{NSYNC}}'s video for "It's Gonna Be Me". The concept of the video not only allowed them to commentate on their status as "accepted underdogs" in the mid-2010s pop scene and give a respectful shoutout to one of the biggest boy bands ever, but also let them goof off with long time friend Demi Lovato and two-fifths of *NSYNC.

* TheManBehindTheMan: According to Pete and Patrick's VH1 commentary, those masked, cloaked people that do that creepy ceremony with the briefcase in "Save Rock and Roll" aren't part of Courtney Love's gang. Courtney apparently [[FreudianExcuse had anti-creative ideas drilled into her head when she was younger]] and is leading a group of [[WellIntentionedExtremist well intentioned extremists]] convinced that the boys are bad news. These cloaked figures just want what's in that suitcase ForTheEvulz and might have been manipulating Love's group for that exact purpose.

They have numerous music videos, including one where they pretended to be vampire hunters that went on for about seven minutes (A Little Less SixteenCandles, A Little More "Touch Me"), one with Turk from ''Series/{{Scrubs}}'' and one ridiculous amount of Michael Jackson references (for their cover of "Beat It"). Other notable deeds the band has committed include one of them impregnating Ashlee Simpson, wearing remarkably tight trousers, almost getting a Guinness World Record for playing a live concert on all seven continents in a certain amount of time, getting a Guinness World Record for doing the most press interviews within a 24 hour time span, being loved by [[Music/{{Blink 182}} Mark]] [[{{TropeCodifier}} Hoppus]], getting on ''TopOfThePops'' [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1RdF9_uFFNw with a song]] with a past history of homosexual subtext, and having some really strange lyrics. They also have a comic called ''ComicBook/FallOutToyWorks'', a {{Cyberpunk}} love story with [[GainaxEnding one big mind screw of an ending]]. As is to be expected from them.

* PopPunk: Fall Out Boy are the {{Trope Codifier}}s for modern day PopPunk (although a case could feasibly be made for Music/{{Paramore}}) and a number of Fall Out Boy's contemporaries). Unlike bands that came before them like Sum 41 and Music/{{Blink 182}}, they avoided puerile lyrics. They didn't shy away from goofball antics in their music videos, but the most immature of these were kept out, instead showing up in tour update videos and an infamous Jackass-style DVD called Release the Bats. This helped Fall Out Boy from getting pigeonholed, compared to blink-182 who had to deal with backlash and general confusion when they tried transitioning to more serious material, and also influenced acts like Music/AllTimeLow to take a similar approach. They also adopted more of a sense of urgency, emo, and slight hardcore punk influence to their music. They also brought in a myriad of outside genre influences and weren't afraid to acknowledge pop punk has ''pop'' in it. They also introduced a DeadpanSnarker attitude to the lyrics and song titles, which a few bands afterward (like Music/PanicAtTheDisco and Cute Is What We Aim For). Their debut album Take This To Your Grave is considered one of the greatest and influential genre albums.
