* CrowningMomentOfIndifference: When the boys (minus Louis and Zayn) were [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9tSSQHQ5Ts0 tricked into believing a woman was going into labor]] on the studio floor, Niall could not have been more apathetic.

* PrecisionFStrike:
** "A.M." from ''Made in the A.M.'' drops the first ever swear word to be used in a One Direction song: "''We're just swimming 'round in our glasses / and talking out of our ''asses''''".
** The lyric "fucking in, fighting on" in Zayn's solo "Pillowtalk" gave a shock to some One Direction fans, as well as separating Zayn's solo career from the fairly clean image the band had.

* One Direction:
** ''Up All Night'' (2011) - 1D's first album. Upon its U.S. release in March 2012, they became the first U.K. group to debut at #1 on the U.S. ''Billboard'' 200 with a debut album.
** ''Take Me Home'' (2012) - One Direction is one of the very few groups to have debuted at the top with both of their first two albums. The only ones to do so prior to them were GirlGroup Danity Kane and Music/{{Eminem}}'s rap troupe D12.
** ''Midnight Memories'' (2013) - One Direction became the first (and to date, only) group to debut atop the ''Billboard'' 200 with each of their first three albums. The last group to even ''reach'' the top with its first three albums were Music/TheMonkees in 1967.
** ''Four'' (2014) - 1D's [[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin fourth]] album. Like the previous one, it set a record for its number-one debut and had the no-longer-boys GrowingTheBeard.
** ''Made In The AM'' (2015) - Despite this being the band's fifth album in as many years, it is their first as a quartet, as a result of Zayn Malik's departure in March 2015. In accordance with ''Four'', this album completes the GenreShift from teen pop to a more rock-oriented style. Also, it is their first album not to go #1 on the Billboard 200, having been blocked by Music/JustinBieber's ''Purpose''.

Added DiffLines:

* 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.

* 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.

* HotDad: Liam Payne and Louis Tomlinson are incredibly attractive dads.
* HotMom: According to the other boys, Harry's mom is rather foxy.
