* BlondeBrunetteRedhead - While very possible to do by yourself, it's also probably one of the reasons why 961 has the three idols it has - in fact, it's an odd case where the "redhead" of the trio is actually blonde, considering Takane's silver locks. [[spoiler: Unless, of course, you count Miki's hairstyle from after she stops dying it, which is probably closer to being red....]]
* ColorCodedForYourConvenience - The Perfect Sun girls (Makoto, Haruka, Yayoi and Hibiki) are red, the Wandering Star girls (Takane, Ami, Mami, Iori and Yukiho) are yellow, and the Missing Moon girls (Azusa, Chihaya, Miki and Ritsuko) are blue. This color code was also used in the mobile games, although changing the name of each category.
* DisproportionateRetribution - [[spoiler: Why did Miki switch from 765 Pro to 961 Pro? Because President Takagi ate her onigiri.]]
* LoverTugOfWar - The Producer is the victim of this in Azusa's ending, with her and Miki on each side.

* AlternateContinuity - Akihiro Ishihara, [[WordOfGod Bandai Namco's director]], said that ''[=iM@S SP=]'' and ''[=iM@S2=]'' are parallel worlds, as in ''[=iM@S2=]'', Hibiki and Takane are 765Pro's idols from the beginning.
* AndYourRewardIsClothes - Although that is largely the point with this game.
* AscendedMeme - Fans noticed that Ritsuko's outfit resembled the uniform of Lawson's convenience stores, and it became a meme. Bamco and Lawson's noticed the meme, and started a cross-promotion campaign that is still ongoing; you can apparently buy raffle tickets for Idolm@ster goods at Lawson's.
* BareYourMidriff - Depending on the costume set.

The franchise has spawned three [[MobilePhoneGame card games for phones]], ''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.

An anime, ''Anime/IdolmasterXenoglossia'' -- from the [[{{Sunrise}} makers]] of ''MaiOtome'' -- was released in 2007 and later licensed by Sentai Filmworks. Rather than being a straight [[TheAnimeOfTheGame Anime Of The Game]], it was instead an {{Elseworld}} RealRobot show that cast the main characters as pilots (or "Masters") of {{Giant Robot}}s called [=IDOLs=] (making them [[IncrediblyLamePun IDOL-Masters]]). A more straightforward [[TheAnimeOfTheGame anime adaptation]] (called ''Anime/TheIdolmaster'') aired in Japan during the Summer and Fall Seasons of 2011.
