The franchise has spawned three [[MobilePhoneGame card games for phones]], ''[[VideoGame/TheIdolmasterCinderellaGirls Cinderella Girls]]'', ''[=SideM=]'' (for the Mobage platform) and ''Million Live'' (for the GREE platform). They feature unique idols and have spawned [=CDs=] and mangas of their own. ''[=SideM=]'' is also noteworthy for being the first game of the franchise with females as its main audience: it features solely male idols. ''Cinderella Girls'' spawned a big enough {{fandom}} to gain an [[Anime/TheIdolmasterCinderellaGirls anime]], that premiered on the Winter2015Anime season. It has also received a RhythmGame for smartphones, ''THE IDOLM@STER: Cinderella Girls Starlight Stage'', with gameplay similar to fellow rhythm phone games such as ''Franchise/LoveLive School Idol Festival'' but using 3D models, and its own ''Gravure 4 You!'' series. It has released another RhythmGame like ''THE IDOLM@STER: Cinderella Girls Starlight Stage'' by using ''Million Live'' as the theme, named ''THE iDOLM@STER Million Live!: Theater Days''. Its PV can be found [[https://youtu.be/0nPXLtNhRrk here]]. ''[=SideM=]'' followed soon after with the announcement of not only a ''Starlight Stage''-like game of their own (''THE iDOLM@STER [=SideM=] Live on Stage!''), but an animated adaptation within the same year, primarily in the Fall2017Anime season.

* MoraleMechanic: Tension. At high tension the idol will perform better in auditions, gaining more points per appeal and being more likely to select a Good memory during a memory appeal; the opposite occurs at low tension. In addition, at low tension the idol has a chance to skip a week completely. Tension's equivalent in 2 is the Unit Status.



* RelationshipValues: The Affection value in ''Starlight Stage''. To a lesser extent, Unity and Tension could count; though they are more like mood stats, they are heavily influenced by your actions and has an impact on your unit's performance. Memories could also count as this.

Memories could also count as this.



* YouLoseAtZeroTrust:
** Your idol's performance drops dramatically if her tension is too low.
** In some games, having a low amount of memories can make the difficulty of lives, auditions and ''especially'' festivals range from simply hard to nigh-{{Unwinnable}}.

** The 765 in 765 Studios is pronounced "na-mu-ko", from "nana" (7), "mu" (6, for counters), and "go" (5, where "go" and "ko" are the same character, mostly). If you still don't get it, this is how Namco is pronounced in Japan. This reference can also be found in other works by Namco, the RidgeRacer and ''VideoGame/AceCombat'' series being good examples.

* ColourCodedCharacters: All of the idols have associated colors, as can be seen [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BfmNtbtoi3A here.]]

to:

* ColourCodedCharacters: All of the idols have associated colors, as colors. The colors for 11 of them can be seen [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BfmNtbtoi3A here.]] ]]
* ComicBookTime: This is more obvious in ''One For All'' and especially ''Platinum Stars'' but universal through the franchise - birthdays might be referred to from time to time, but with the exception of VideoGame/TheIdolmaster2 and other entries set in "Second Vision" nobody gets to age. Even then the idols only aged up one year.



* DownloadableContent

to:

* DownloadableContentDownloadableContent: New songs, costumes and accessories are regular fixtures as [=DLC=]. Some games include extra stories or additional rival units as well.



* EndlessGame: ''One For All'' and ''Platnium Stars'' still track weeks and seasons, but neither have the 52-week time limit to win that was present in previous games.



* {{Kawaiiko}}: Iori

to:

* {{Kawaiiko}}: IoriSome characters from the series work hard at being cute or deliberately play up their cuteness, such as Iori Minase from the original games, and Sachiko Koshimizu from ''Cinderella Girls''.

* LuckyCharmsTitleLuckyCharmsTitle: A ''@'' is used in place of the "a" in the "master" part of the name.



* NotAllowedToGrowUp: Played straight until [[Videogame/TheIdolmaster2 THE iDOLM@STER 2]], in which everyone is one year older.

to:

* NoDamageRun: Some of the games provide a score bonus or other reward on completing a song with a full combo, though the amount of that bonus depends on the game itself.
* NotAllowedToGrowUp: Played straight until [[Videogame/TheIdolmaster2 THE iDOLM@STER 2]], in which everyone is one year older. None of the idols have aged since then, however. This is a side-effect of ComicBookTime being used throughout the series.



* OneSteveLimit: Averted trope. Within the mobile game spinoffs, many idols between them share first names. Notably, ''Cinderella Girls'', ''Million Live'' and ''[=SideM=]'' all have a character named "Nao" (Nao Kamiya, Nao Yokoyama and Nao Okamura in order, though only the first two share Japanese characters also), and the latter two games both have a "Tsubasa" in their respective game's main PowerTrio (Tsubasa Ibuki and Tsubasa Kashiwagi, same character).



* PaletteSwap: Though an UnlimitedWardrobe might be available, many of the items in that wardrobe are the same outfit with a different color scheme. This sometimes gets combined with ColourCodedCharacters, with a singular outfit or accessory having a different color depending on the idol wearing it.



* PunnyName / GoroawaseNumber: President Kuroi of 961 Production ("961" can be read as ''ku-ro-i'').

** LimitedWardrobe: A rare case where both apply. With the amount of DLC out there's almost no end to the clothes the girls can wear. But in the in-game communications they are always using the same set, the only diference being that it changes between Summer and Winter.

Added DiffLines:

%% * Antepiece: Some songs have a button pattern that repeats later on at a faster pace, such as Bokutachi no Resistance on MASTER.
* MetaMultiplayer: Leaderboards are maintained for the highest scores on each song.
* RhythmGame: Though the entire series has had rhythm-game-styled elements about it, ''Platinum Stars'' more closely resembles other rhythm games, with a setup that involves button patterns flying to a central, fixed point on-screen.
* UncannyValleyMakeup: Getting a low score on the cosmetics lesson results in the idol who took it wearing makeup that looks... almost stenciled on.
