* TeethClenchedTeamwork: And ''how''. Nobody in New Edition was on the same page post-''Heart Break'', mostly due to their egos from solo stardom getting in the way. The animosity in the group was just barely staying under the surface[[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bfErzjCigwQ in this early 1990 Video Soul interview]], and it fully boiled over by the time of the ''Home Again'' tour, culminating in Bobby and Ronnie starting a full-scale brawl on stage, someone getting shot, and Mike and Bobby leaving the group again for another few years.

* TheBandMinusTheFace: Played with. After the Heart Break tour, lead singers Johnny Gill and Ralph Tresvant began work on solo albums. The three remaining members then formed the hip-hop group Bell Biv [=DeVoe=], which was distinct from New Edition’s R&B style. Gill, Tresvant, and Bobby Brown later toured under the group name, Heads of State. New Edition as a group, though, has always included the core four of Bell, Bivens, Devoe, and Tresvant.

* SpiritualSuccessor: Many R&B and pop boy bands have modeled themselves after New Edition at one point or another, but Boyz II Men is considered their direct successor, [[InvokedTrope even naming themselves]] after a New Edition song. It doesn't hurt that Mike Bivens helped groom them into superstars.

* SmallNameBigEgo: As good as Bobby Brown was in and out of New Editon, his bandmates had a hard time putting up with his ego. Unsurprisingly, this was the main reason he got kicked out of the group in 1985. He was also responsible for the infamous ''Home Again'' brawl that caused the tour to be cancelled prematurely, though the general tensions in New Edition were already past the boiling point by that time.
