!!Tropes shared by Morning Musume:

* AllGirlsWantBadBoys: The lyrics in "Sexy Boy ~Soyokaze ni Yorisotte~" imply this.
* AntiLoveSong: "Shabondama" and "Kanashimi Twilight"
* AscendedExtra: Linlin, Mizuki Fukumura, Haruka Kudou, Sakura Oda, Akane Haga and Maria Makino were originally part of Hello! Project Eggs/Kenshuusei, the trainee program in HelloProject, prior to joining.
* {{Bifauxnen}}: Hitomi Yoshizawa. Goes to gigantic proportions in "Mr. Moonlight ~Ai no Big Band", where EvenTheGirlsWantHer.
** Haruka Kudou seems to be cultivating this image in the current generation.
* BrattyHalfPint: Ai Kago and Nozomi Tsuji in their early days.
* BreakTheCutie: Asuka Fukuda claims to have left Morning Musume because the other members bullied her due to her young age. She is the shortest lived member and the only one to completely go back to civilian life. No longer the case as she has resurfaced as part of a group called PEACE$TONE.
** Ai Kago as a more notorious example, having been caught in two scandals after graduating from Morning Musume. The first had her suspended indefinitely from Hello! Project activities, and the second resulted in her being dismissed from Up-Front Agency altogether.
* BreakUpSong: "Onna ni Sachi Are", "Naichau Kamo"
* BrutalHonesty: Junjun, especially when you consider how much Japanese etiquette means the Japanese have a [[CannotSpitItOut hard time telling people]] things they may not want to hear.
* ButNowIMustGo: Graduations, or when members announce their departure from the group.
* CantHoldHerLiquor: Kaori Iida, according to a parody version of "Love Machine" she did alongside Kei Yasuda.
* CharactersAsDevice: Adding Junjun and Linlin was an attempt to break out in Asia.
* ChronologicalAlbumTitle: Used for all their original studio albums. In order, they are: ''First Time'', ''Second Morning'', ''3rd LOVE Paradise'', ''4th Ikimasshoi!'', ''No.5'', ''Ai no Dai 6 Kan'', ''Rainbow 7'', ''SEXY 8 BEAT'', ''Platinum 9 DISC'', ''10 MY ME'', ''Fantasy! Juuichi'', ''12, Smart'', ''13 Colorful Character'', and ''14shou ~The message~''.
* ColorCodedCharacters: Each member has her own official image color, used to identify their merchandise and glowsticks, for example. In concerts, the members may even have a set of costumes all in their respective colors. For the current line-up:
** Sayumi Michishige: light pink
** Mizuki Fukumura: hot pink
** Erina Ikuta: yellow-green
** Riho Sayashi: red
** Kanon Suzuki: green
** Haruna Iikubo: [[InsistentTerminology honey]] (yellow)
** Ayumi Ishida: blue
** Masaki Sato: emerald green
** Haruka Kudo: orange
** Sakura Oda: lavender
* ConcertKiss: Look for performances of "Love & Peace! HERO ga Yattekita."
* CoverVersion: "Hyokkori Hyoutanjima", "Pepper Keibu", and the cover album ''Cover You''.
* CuteButCacophonic: Ai Takahashi's screams fit the dissonant sound side of the trope rather than outright volume. Also, Mari Yaguchi, who is just disproportionatly loud when provoked.
* DancingIsSeriousBusiness: The signature dynamic of the current Morning Musume '14.
* DarkerAndEdgier: After Hitomi Yoshizawa and Rika Ishikawa left Morning Musume, they became the human avatars for Hangry & Angry, punk-lolita mascots desighed by h.Naoto. Yoshizawa and Ishikawa continued to use the TomboyAndGirlyGirl archetypes respectively.
* DeadpanSnarker: Yuko Nakazawa, Kaori Iida
* EverythingsBetterWithSparkles: Usually occurs in the [=PVs=], but "One Two Three" and "Wakuteka Take a Chance" took it to new, memetic heights.
* EvolvingMusic: Part of the ever-changing nature of the group's roster of members; as the line-up changes, so does the music they put out.
* FunSize: Mari Yaguchi is only 4'8"! This became part of her idea when she formed [[TokenMiniMoe Mini Moni]] with Ai Kago and Nozomi Tsuji.
* GoldMakesEverythingShiny: The music videos of "Onna ni Sachi Are" and "Kono Chikyuu no Heiwa wo Honki de Negatterun da yo!"
* GreatestHitsAlbum: Currently the group has released one all-singles album (their first 34 singles) and two albums featuring all their singles' coupling tracks.
* GreyRainOfDepression: The music video of "Naichau Kamo" has the girls crying in the rain.
* HotBlooded: Mari Yaguchi.
* IdenticalStranger: Ai Kago with T&C Bomber's [=RuRu=].
* IllGirl: Eri Kamei graduated from Morning Musume because she had chronic health problems.
** Aika Mitsui graduated earlier than expected because of an unhealed fracture in her foot, but still remains in Hello! Project as a whole.
* IntercourseWithYou: "Iroppoi Jirettai", "Kanashimi Twilight"
* IntergenerationalFriendship: Makoto Ogawa with Hitomi Yoshikawa.
* JerkAss: Part of Miki Fujimoto's appeal.
* KansaiRegionalAccent: Yuko Nakazawa, Aika Mitsui
* LookingForLoveInAllTheWrongPlaces: "Nanchatte Renai" talks about a girl who goes through a bunch of boyfriends trying to find love, but is unsuccessful.

** Ame no Furanai Hoshi de wa Aisenai Darou? (''We Can't Love on a Planet With No Rain, Right?'')

* LoveConfession: A lot of their songs, noticeably "Sakura Mankai"
* MeaningfulName: Hitomi Yoshizawa got her name due to her beautiful eyes, her name could roughly be translated to english as "eye person".
* {{Medley}}: Frequently performed in concerts.
* MsFanservice: Sayumi, though she's like us to believe she's an InnocentFanserviceGirl.
* NaughtyNurseOutfit: Invoked for Hitomi Yoshizawa, but only for cuteness, [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bEmjOKDXFR8 here]].
* NoSenseOfPersonalSpace: Yuko Nakazawa, though it's really her being a bit of a JerkAss mixed with ComedicSociopathy.
* OneSteveLimit: Averted with Haruna Iikubo and Haruna Ogata, who are part of the same lineup.
* PerformanceVideo: "Chokkan 2 ~Nogashita Sakana wa Ookiizo!~", which features excerpts of various concert performances, and "What is LOVE?", which is a straight concert performance.
* PerpetualSmiler: Kanon Suzuki, hardly ever seen without a big grin even [[UpToEleven while singing.]]
* PimpedOutDress: The dresses in the music video for "Otoko to Onna no Lullaby Game", later seen on the covers of the album ''Fantasy! Juuichi''. There will also be several of these worn as concert costumes, which are shed to reveal a more form-fitting costume underneath.
* PromotedFanboy: Risa Niigaki was known to be a fan of Morning Musume prior to her joining the group.
** There's also Erina Ikuta, who as a fan of Niigaki herself, attended a fan club bus tour for Niigaki as a regular fan, going along and doing activities with the rest of the participants. Sure enough, Ikuta ended up inheriting Niigaki's yellow-green image color after the latter's graduation.
* PungeonMaster: Kaori Iida.
* RetailTherapy: A stanza in "Kimagure Princess" talks about the girl in the song shopping online to soothe her frustrations. Subverted when she buys too much and ends up being angry when she receives the bill.
* RuleOfSymbolism: In the video for "No Hesitation", Ai Kago starts off trying to pack a large suit case and is wearing a dress but at the lyrics "Dangling my halfhearted feelings/with big baggage over my back/I don't need things like that any more" she stops, changes her clothes for a practical t-shirt, shorts and walking boots and opts to carry a backpack.
* RunningGag: "Kame" is Japanese for turtle so whenever one of the other members sees a turtle they'll often exclaim, "There's Eri-chan!"
* ScrewTheRulesImBeautiful: Sayumi
* SelfHarm: Ai Kago during her HeroicBSOD after being fired from Hello! Project by Up-Front Agency for being photographed smoking despite already being suspended for it a year earlier. She suffered from severe depression and started cutting herself. She has even admitted to having suicidal thoughts. She has since recovered, in addition to making a comeback as a musician and actress, as well as getting married and having a daughter.
* SexySecretary: Yuko Nakazawa before joining Morning Musume.
* SignatureSong: "LOVE Machine"
* SpaceStation: Part of the music video of "Renai Revolution 21" takes place in a SpaceStation. There's also a lot of funny SpaceClothes involved in the wardrobe, too.
* StepfordSmiler: "Summer Night Town"
* StockForeignName: Junjun and Linlin.
* TakeThat: After her less-than-pleasant departure from Hello! Project, Ai Kago's song "No Hesitation" has a few veiled references to her time as an idol.

Put together in 2004, [[WhatCouldHaveBeen it was originally planned to rotate all the members of Hello! Project Kids]], but stuck with the founding members. Prior to their debut, they were back-up dancers for W at their concerts and music videos ("Aa ii na!" and "Robo Kiss.")

In August 2014, the group announced that they would be going on indefinite hiatus starting in spring 2015.

** Maimi Yajima's screentime shot UpToEleven after [[ThePeteBest Megumi Murakami]], the group's lead singer, left before their major label debut.

* JustTheWayYouAre: "Kiss! Kiss! Kiss!"

* AyaMatsuura
** JiggleShow: In some concert footage and PVs (such as the [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kDmDLULFDqg "Wild Ayaya" version]] of "Goodbye Natsuo") it is ''very'' obvious she's [[VaporWear not wearing a bra]].
* MakiGoto
** HotterAndSexier: And how!
** IntercourseWithYou
** TheMistress: "Glass no Pumps" is basically about a woman entering a final affair with a man who she knows is currently involved in another relationship.

* VitriolicBestBuds
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Mini Moni]]
!!Mini Moni
Pioneered by Morning Musume member Mari Yaguchi in 2000, Mini Moni's concept was to include all of the TokenMiniMoe members from Morning Musume under the height of 150 cms. Initially starting out with Mari Yaguchi, Nozomi Tsuji, and Ai Kago of Morning Musume, Mika Todd from Coconuts Musume was later added to the team. In 2002, Yaguchi departed from the group and elected Ai Takahashi to join, raising the height requirement to 153 cms. A fictionalized account of why Yaguchi decided to leave the group was explored in their half live-action half-animated film ''Mini Moni [[TheMovie ja Movie]]: Okashi na Dai Bouken''.

Mini Moni's [[LighterAndSofter kid appeal]] made them a hit with young children, and their songs tend to be nonsensical and educational. They've collaborated with comedian Baka Tono-sama ([[CatchPhrase "Ai~n!"]]) and appeared in ''{{Hamtaro}}''. Following Todd's departure from the group and Kago and Tsuji leaving Morning Musume in 2004, the group disbanded.

If you're Internet-savvy, you might know them because of the [[AnimalReactionShot Dramatic]] [[MemeticMutation Chipmunk]].

!!Tropes shared by Mini Moni:

* ActingForTwo: The girls also play the robots in the assembly line in the music video for "Lucky Cha Cha Cha."
* AdultsDressedAsChildren: Mainly for their child appeal.
* AllLoveIsUnrequited: Or is it in "Crazy About You"?
* {{Chibi}}: Many of their {{Animated Music Video}}s.
* ClassyCatBurglar: Ai Takahashi in TheMovie.
* CuteLittleFangs: A caricature of Tsuji's teeth appeared on her animated character.
* DarkerAndEdgier: The concept for "Crazy For You" is much more mature than the other works they've done.
* [[DoesNotLikeSpam Does Not Like Milk]]: Mari Yaguchi.
* FiveManBand:
** TheHero & TeamMom: Mari Yaguchi
** TheLancer & TheSmartGuy: Mika Todd
** TagalongKid & ThoseTwoGirls: Nozomi Tsuji and Ai Kago
** SixthRanger: Ai Takahashi
* FunSize: The whole concept of Mini Moni thrives on this.
* ListSong: "Rock n' Roll Kenchoushozaichi ~Oboechaina Series!~" lists all of the prefectural capitals in Japan.
* NiceJobBreakingItHero: In the music video for "Lucky Cha Cha Cha", the girls break a whole assembly line... but at least got a parfait out of it.
* ReunionShow: Mari Yaguchi performed with Mini Moni during the HelloProject 2004 Spring concert, [[TearJerker as it was the last concert before Mika Todd would be leaving the company for good]].
* SpaceStation: The music video for "Jankenpyon" takes place in one.
* SurprisinglyGoodEnglish: In "Crazy For You" and some of the songs where lines are actually in English. Justified with the fact that Mika is a native English speaker.
* TsurimeEyes: Ai Kago's animated counterpart has them while everyone else has TaremeEyes.
* {{Tomboy}}: Mika Todd was the only girl who wore a unique uniform, most often more tomboyish than others. For example in ''Okashi no Dai Bouken'', she wore a chef uniform while everyone else wore waitress uniforms. Mari justified this by saying that it's because Mika was exactly on point with the height requirement. Interestingly, after Mari left the group, this no longer seemed to be the case.
* WearingAFlagOnYourHead: Mika wears the flag for the United States in the music video for "Jankenpyon." It also appears in some of her other costumes.
* YouGottaHaveBlueHair: Their animated counterparts.

[[folder:W]]
!!W
W was a comprised of former Morning Musume members and friends Nozomi Tsuji and Ai Kago in 2004. Notable for their symmetrical choreography and similar heights, they could be mistaken as SingleMindedTwins. Unfortunately, their activities were suspended in 2006 after Kago made tabloids smoking underage. W ultimately disbanded when Kago was booted out of HelloProject for [[MayDecemberRomance dating an older man]] and [[LaserGuidedKarma smoking again]].

!! Tropes shared by W:

* AchievementsInIgnorance: In the video for "Aa ii na", they walk off straight of a cliff and it takes them a second to notice as the camera pans back to a wide shot, then it takes a few more second before they actually fall.
* ActingForTwo: Both Tsuji and Kago played the detectives Cara and Mel, the [[{{Joshikousei}} high school girls]], and the angels in the music video for "Miss Love Tantei." Cranks UpToEleven in "Robo Kiss."
* AmateurSleuth: "Miss Love Tantei." Tsuji and Kago play their detective characters, Cara and Mel, in a mystery-themed {{Musical}} about them.
* BreakUpSong: "Koi no Fuga"
* BrotherSisterIncest: Vaguely implied in "Dakishimenaide ~Nikki Tsuki~". One has to raise eyebrows at the lines "We were born far away from each other/And then we met." Either that or it could be StarCrossedLovers.
* CatchPhrase: "W desu!"
* ColorCodedForYourConvenience: In "Robo Kiss", Tsuji is pink while Kago is blue.
* CoverVersion: Some of their songs are covers.
* IntercourseWithYou: "Koi no Vacance" has the lyrics, "Let's love in bare flesh like mermaids."
* LongHairedPrettyBoy: "Suki yo Captain" has the lyrics, "Long hair suits you best."
* LoveTriangle: A stanza in "Friendship" deals with the speaker in the song being conflicted when she and her best friend fall in love with the same guy.
* LuckyCharmsTitle: "Miss Love Tantei" has a heart in its stylized title.
* PissTakeRap: Tsuji delivers one in "Miss Love Tantei", which is pretty notable, as HelloProject isn't known for rapping.
* PlatonicLifePartners: The song "Friendship"
* SpellMyNameWithAnS: Apparently, W can also be written as "Double U" or "Double You."
* ThemeNaming: Tsuji and Kago's detective characters are named Cara and Mel.
* WhatCouldHaveBeen: "Dou ni mo Tomaranai" was supposed to be their comeback single after Kago came back from her suspension. This and their third album, "W3: Faithful", were cancelled when she was dismissed from the company.
* WhatIsThisThingYouCallLove: [[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin "Ai no Imi wo Oshiete!"]]
* WomanInWhite: In the music video for "Miss Love Tantei", Kago and Tsuji play two mysterious angels in white who return the diamond to its stand in the museum.

[[folder:Coconuts Musume]]
!!Coconuts Musume

Coconuts Musume was founded in 1998 when a group of girls singing caught the attention of Tsunku's bandmate while he was traveling in Hawaii. These girls were signed onto their agency as a companion sister group to the flapship band HelloProject, Morning Musume, but faced line-up changes within their first years due to difficulties for some of the members adjusting in Japan. They haven't released anything since 2002, and technically disbanded in 2004, though Ayaka remained in HelloProject carrying the group's name until 2008.

Kira☆Pika was a sub-group comprised of Koharu Kusumi from Morning Musume and Mai Hagiwara of C-ute with the purpose of performing the ending theme songs to ''KirarinRevolution''. Kusumi was already portraying protagonist Kirari Tsukishima, both in voice and in person on the children's variety show ''OhaStar''. To promote the group, Hagiwara would play a similar role as Hikaru, a CanonForeigner designed for the show.

Morning Musume's Koharu Kusumi had a huge part in ''KirarinRevolution'' by not only supplying the theme songs, but by also playing the protagonist, Kirari Tsukishima, in voice and in person on the children morning show ''OhaStar''. Come the end of the show, a 3D-animated sequel, ''Kirarin Revolution Stage 3'' was created in 2008 to continue the franchise with two new {{Canon Foreigner}}s, Kobeni and Noeru, as the leads. Hello! Project Eggs You Kikkawa and Sayaka Kitahara were chosen to play those roles in the same fashion Kusumi had with Kirari. After the end of ''KirarinRevolution'', the group disbanded.

Tropes specific to the characters Kusumi, Kikkawa, and Kitahara portray should be put in the ''KirarinRevolution'' page.

!!Shugo Chara! Egg
Formed in 2008, Shugo Chara! Egg was a GirlGroup consisting of four Hello! Project Eggs dedicated to performing the theme songs to ''ShugoChara''. Each girl represented one of the four main Character Changes that protagonist Amu Hinamori could do. The original line-up consisted of Yuuka Maeda (Amulet Heart), Akari Saho (Amulet Spade), Kanon Fukuda (Amulet Clover), and Ayaka Wada (Amulet Diamond), but when three of these members were promoted from Egg status to form S/mileage, they had to be replaced. In ''Shugo Chara! Party!'', the girls hosted the live-action segments of the show. The group was disbanded after the show ended in 2010.

The members consist of:

* Yuuka Maeda as Amulet Heart (left in 2009)
* Akari Saho as Amulet Spade
* Kanon Fukuda as Amulet Clover (left in 2009)
* Ayaka Wada as Amulet Diamond (left in 2009)
