* StuckInTheirShadow: Lena in a major way:
** Either a song would be split 50/50 on lead vocals or Julia would have all of them and Lena would be stuck doing backing vocals[[note]]"Doschitai do Sta" is an exception, as Julia hadn't been recruited yet[[/note]]. Even on Waste Management when Julia is audibly straining with some of her singing due to previous injuries.
** Julia was far more outgoing at early live shows, though after Lena had to perform some of their shows solo she gained more presence.
** Lena did basically take the lead for the entire reunion run though, as both a vocal tumor and botched repair surgery left Julia unable to sing louder than a whisper for a long time.

As for their solo careers, both have continued the tATu sound in different ways. Lena's songs follow the soft rock and piano ballad style of some of their songs, while Julia's songs have an electropop edge like the third albums. The difference is highlighted by their first singles. "Never Forget You" is Lena's rock-infused sendoff to the band featuring a funeral in the video, and "All because of You" is an electronic song about wishing she didn't love a girl, with a video featuring a Lena lookalike getting jealous of her boyfriend and killing them with a bomb, much like the 30 Minutes video.

** Slammed Lena's efforts in a 2009 interview while the group was still together (mainly criticising her for performing tATu songs in her solo shows, which she has since started doing HERSELF). Lena stated that she was very hurt by this.

** In 2014, told Lena that the reunited tATu would be run her way, and if Lena didn't like it, she'd replace her and sabotage Lena's career in Russia. Lena naturally baulked at this and revealed the whole threat on her YouTube, at the same time torpedoing their reunion permanently.

** A particular example is the Prostiye Dvizhenya video. Half of it is a shot of an underage (17 at the oldest as of filming) Yulia apparently naked and masturbating, only given modesty y the close up cropping of the shot. If this isn't unsettling enough, their early live performances actually featured some uncropped shots too. And this wasn't even the only time blatant underage porn was in one of their early Russian videos.

Added DiffLines:

* NoExportForYou: During the first album sessions, a stripped down song called "Prostye Dvizeniya" was recorded but ultimately left off the album. An English version called "A Simple Motion" was also recorded and cut. "Prostye" was reworked into a heavy dance track for the first Remix album in 2004, and "Simple Motion" was finally released on the 10th anniversary edition of 200 km/h in The Wrong Lane, but to the irritation of some completionists, neither the original stripped down version of the Russian track or a remixed version of the English track have ever been released or leaked.

** A remix of "Beliy Plaschik" ("White Robe") features completely uncensored shots of Julia topless in a shower, and Lena showing full frontal nudity. Both are still perfectly willing to do topless scenes in their solo videos.



* RuleOfSymbolism: Their last music video has them in separate rooms and during "their" only scenes "together", it shows "them" standing back to back before "they" start arguing. The ending scene also features Yulia in a Lena wig hugging herself. The promotional materials also have them in separate portraits.

This is because Lena refuses to talk to or share a room with Julia.
** "Snegopady / Snowfalls", their original last video in both languages, kills both the girls off ([[RunningGag again]]), because both wanted to take time off from the band and their friendship was beginning to fall apart, putting the future of the band in doubt.

* WhamShot: Near the end of the "White Robe" video, Julia has her robe removed as she is chained to a post for the firing squad to aim at her, and we finally see that [[spoiler: she is heavily pregnant]].

Infamously, they refused to perform at the World Music Awards unless provided with real guns. Lena said, "We wanted real machine-guns, but they didn't give us, so we wouldn't perform, that simple." Brazenly, after promising not to kiss on ''TheTonightShow'', they engaged in a long, passionate wet one-- much to the alarm of anxious network censors, (and well before [[LesYay Britney and Madonna's little stunt]]). And yet, when expected to do the same on Jimmy Kimmel, they deliberately censored themselves. Yulia said, "Basically, because we like to do what we want, a lot of people are, like, 'you shouldn't do this, you shouldn't do that, you shouldn't behave in this way.' But you know what? Actually for us, we are the way that we are, and we don't really live in fear of anybody. So, if we behave in a certain way, then that's just actually the way we are."

** How far did Shapovalov take it? Early publicity photos of the girls in school uniforms included pictures of them spreading their legs with their panties in clear view, and pictures of Lena sitting on the toilet; he also forced them to strip each other out of their schoolgirl outfits while performing on stage. Shapovalov's firing came largely from the girls becoming tired of being his {{Fetish Fuel Station Attendant}}s.

* FanservicePack: They were marketed for {{Fanservice}} by their original manager, but since he later admitted that he's doing this for his own FetishFuel, plus the way he "packaged" them, makes it more FanDisservice-y. Eventually however, the girls found their own way to show their sex appeal.
