* TotallyRadical / TwoDecadesBehind: The cartoony outfits for the misfits and the "Bad" acrobats could have come from a [[DisneyThemeParks Walt Disney World]] musical revue from TheEighties. Well, TheEighties ''were'' Music/MichaelJackson's salad days...

* ConceptsAreCheap: Of the four traits Jackson supposedly embodies, ''agility'' and ''playfulness'' are obvious, but ''courage'' and especially ''love'' less so, thus falling into this trope. This was probably bound to happen in a show with no actual dialogue; a few spoken word sound bites of Jackson himself don't go very far in explaining what they're supposed to mean. But hey, ''courage'' and ''love'' are good things, right? And the bad guys are weak against them, right?



* CrucifiedHeroShot: At the end of the "Earth Song" shadow play, the performers create an image of Michael in this pose, which he used so often in performance himself.

As for the title, ''ONE'' refers to Jackson's superstar status, the promise that the bulk of the show will feature his #1 charting songs (though only 10 of the 33 songs used actually achieved that position in the U.S.), and his dream of a completely united human race.

* EverythingsBetterWithSparkles: Wink's black getup is sparkly in the way that Jackson's ''Motown 25'' "Billie Jean" jacket was sparkly. By the end of the show -- but particularly during "Man in the Mirror" and "Can You Feel It" -- there's sparkly golden magic dust flying/being flung about ''everywhere'', thankfully not literally (rather, on film).

* EveryoneLovesBlondes: The Muse, "a conduit for Michael's music", is a golden blonde and the {{Foil}} to the dark-haired villainess Dirty Diana with regards to desirability and moral code. She rocks out too much to be HairOfGoldHeartOfGold.
