* MrFanservice: All of them to an extent, though some more than others. Liam especially has been turning this up to eleven in his solo career.

* BoyBand: Their most defining characteristic. While their record sales trail the Music/BackstreetBoys and Music/{{NSYNC}}, One Direction is said to have a larger fan base than their predecessors. While One Direction are significantly behind Music/TakeThat's success in their homeland, they have eclipsed them everywhere else.

* ICantDance: [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wwk2tPauT_s Just watch this.]] Or [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_yiie5PWbGc this.]]
* IntercourseWithYou: "Rock Me" could be interpreted this way. And again, "Kiss You" ("If you don't wanna take it slow/ And you just wanna take me home/ Baby, say yeah, yeah, yeah").
** Actually most of their songs could be interpreted as this (especially "Live While We're Young", with its "get some" lyric). They may as well call themselves GettingCrapPastTheRadar: The Band.
** Especially since the release of ''Midnight Memories'', where they stopped even trying to be subtle.
** {{Lampshaded}} in an interview with James Corden in 2015 about the song "No Control"
--> '''James:''' ''[Quotes the comparatively raunchy lyrics]'' [[SarcasmMode What's the song about, guys?]]
* {{Irony}}: The band's SignatureSong is "What Makes You Beautiful", which has the lines "don't need makeup to cover up, being the way that you are is enough", yet One Direction once released a line of makeup.
** Similarly, "What Makes You Beautiful" is about a girl who doesn't know how beautiful she is, whilst Niall Horan's solo song "One The Loose" features a woman who acknowledges her beauty and uses it to draw attention to herself
* ItIsPronouncedTroPAY: Non-Brits may not realize that Louis's name is pronounced like "Louie", not "Lewis".

* [[LandslideElection Landslide Voting]]: Their wins at the Teen Choice Awards, Kids' Choice Awards, and other similar awards ceremonies are likely won through landslides. While voting data has never been revealed, the outcome is generally a very safe assumption.

* MrFanservice: All of them to some extent
** All of them, bar Niall, show up shirtless in "What Makes You Bbeautiful". Niall makes up for this by appearing shirtless in "Live While We're Young" (as does Harry). They're all shirtless again in "Kiss You" before Zayn and Niall are both shirtless in the video for "One Way Or Another"
** Outside of music videos, the boys attractiveness has also been used in other ways. Harry seems to get the most of this. Liam, however, has been giving him a run for his money since starting his solo career.
* MyNaymeIs: Zayn was actually born "Zain", but he changed the spelling for his professional career.
