!!Tropes that recur frequently in BONES works are:

* AnimationBump: Like Creator/{{TMS|Entertainment}}, it's there on so many levels.
* ConspicuousCG: Appears every now and again.
* AuthorAppeal: An older male transvestite has appeared in ''Anime/CowboyBebop'', ''Anime/WolfsRain'', ''Anime/DarkerThanBlack'', and ''[[Manga/FullmetalAlchemist Fullmetal Alchemist: Brotherhood]]'' and has an expanded role in the latter. ''Anime/KurauPhantomMemory'' is about two women who live like a couple. ''Manga/OuranHighSchoolHostClub'' is about a girl who dresses up as a boy.
* EverythingsBetterWithRainbows: ''Anime/EurekaSeven'' ''Anime/XamdLostMemories'', and ''Anime/StarDriver'' among others, play this straight. Rainbows are used as symbols a lot, as well as other things. It's frequently used in explosions and blasts of energy.
* HeyItsThatGuy[=/=]NamesToKnowInAnime: Co-founder Hiroshi Osaka first worked at Creator/AnimeR.
* OffModel: Due to their exaggerated animation, it can happen both deliberately and unintentionally.
** Also like most Japanese studios, bad outsourcing as well.
* ProductionPosse: Even outside of the actual studio employees, contributors to one Bones show typically show up again at some point. Perhaps most notably, YokoKanno, despite being an independent composer, has scored a sizable chunk of their shows.
** If it's Bones, you can generally expect TakehitoKoyasu and/or MamoruMiyano to voice someone.
* SceneryPorn: To the point that they might actually rival Creator/HayaoMiyazaki films every now and then.
