* The music video to "Liberian Girl" is all about this. Seriously, there a couple of dozen of celebs featured in just this one video, like Whoopi Goldberg, John Travolta, Steven Spielberg, you name it. The video can be simply refereed to as Michael Jackson's "Look how many 80's A-list celebrities I'm friends with!"

** The "Thriller" section of ''This Is It'' starts out in Rides/TheHauntedMansion -- ghosts having a party in a ballroom, and the "narrator" implied to have hanged himself -- and ends like [[Disney/{{Fantasia}} Night on Bald Mountain/Ave Maria]] -- the ghosts return to their graves at sunrise; there's also "dead bride and dead groom" "kites" that resemble the ghosts in "Night on Bald Mountain".

** "Morphine" from ''Blood On The Dance Floor'' might reach a 5 or a 6 due to the somewhat harsh industrial influence and Slash's guitar work, but drops down to a 1 in the bridge.

* IntercourseWithYou: A few songs seem romantic, but are clearly this trope. (''Invincible'''s "Break of Dawn" at least doesn't hide it, [[LyricalDissonance despite the sombre mood]])

* NeverSpeakIllOfTheDead: Michael spent the last two decades of his life being [[MemeticMolester the butt of molestation jokes]], among other things, with his musical career being largely ignored. Even though he was seen a bit more positively when the child molestation charges were dismissed in 2005, it wasn't until after he passed away that these negative comments about his personal life almost completely disappeared. If you don't believe us, count how many times it's mentioned on this very page.



* TheSomethingSong: "Earth Song".
** [[InvertedTrope Inversion]]: “Wanna Be Startin’ Something”

** Blanket is basically a light-skinned version of Michael as a child.
* VerbalTic:
** "HEE HEE!", "I don't know!", "CHAMONE!", "WOOH!" and his fairly unique vocal "hiccup" style also qualify.

* WorstNewsJudgmentEver: An extreme RealLife example, in that his death overshadowed everything from voter protests in Iran to the beginning of U.S. troop withdrawals in Iraq, as well as many other celebrity deaths (with the exception of Billy Mays, whose death caused a ''second'' crash of several news sites within a week).

** His children also apply, as he hid their faces with carnival masks when in public, and a blanket on his youngest son (who'd be nicknamed "Blanket").



* ThePiratesWhoDontDoAnything: One reason his SmallNameBigEgo reputation worsened in his final decade (1999-2009) was that he didn't tour, performed live very rarely, and only produced one full album in 2001; all his other releases were compilations of older material with a few new songs thrown in (one on ''Number Ones'', more in the box set). This is another reason the term "self-proclaimed King of Pop" was thrown around a lot when he was mentioned in the media; he wasn't doing much to maintain his throne.
* PopStarComposer: In the mid 2000s, it was discovered that Jackson had a hand in composing some of the soundtrack of ''[[VideoGame/Sonic3AndKnuckles Sonic the Hedgehog 3]]'', with most evidence pointing to the fact that most of the songs are either uptempo or {{Suspiciously Similar Song}}s of tracks from his ''Dangerous'' album. He is not credited in the game itself, with the official reasons being that he disliked the low-grade sound equipment used to make [[UsefulNotes/SegaGenesis Sega Mega Drive]] music, but given that he had [[MemeticMolester somewhat bigger things]] to worry about in early 1993, it's easier to see the true reasons behind his abandoning the project. He later lent his voice and likeness to another Creator/{{Sega}} project, ''Space Channel 5'', but it's not known if he provided any music.
