!!Tropes seen in mothy's songs:
* AbusiveParents: The father in ''Flame of Yellow Phosphorus'' is heavily implied to be this.
* AnimatedActors: Mothy seems to treat the Vocaloids this way, and each is credited for the role of the character in the [=PVs=] they're in. For example, Len playing both Allen and Lemy in Servant of Evil and The 5th Pierrot respectively.
* ArtificialHuman: The two Rins from ''Screws Clockwork and Pride''. They are implied to be life-size, living toys.
* CannotSpitItOut: A variation; in ''To the Reticent You'' Rin displays irritation at her boyfriend being unable to tell her that he loves her. [[spoiler: She's understandably overjoyed when he [[CrowningMomentOfHeartwarming finally does at the end]]]].
* ClockPunk: A common theme of the Evillious Chronicles, as well as some of mothy's minor songs like "Screws, Clockwork, and Pride".
* CrapsackWorld: In the Sleepless Torture Tower series. You can probably guess from the name why it qualifies.
** Then there's "Screws, Gears and Pride" (the two protagonists are viewed as inferior and thrown into a landfill) and "Watching Us" (a polluted city where people can fall terminally ill just by ''breathing'').
* DespairSpeech: Near the end of "White Brick and Black Mourning Dress", when the singer realizes she never got the hand mirror that was promised to her if she could "remain pure." She concludes she must be corrupted and worthless.
* TheDogBitesBack: In ''Flame of Yellow Phosphorus,'' Rin's father kicks her out of the house and refuses to let her eat anything until she sells all the matches. She burns the house down with him still inside.
* DownerEnding: ''Flame of Yellow Phosphorus'' also counts. The singer burns to death.
* GreenAesop: ''Watching Us''. Interestingly, it doesn't so much go for showing the effect the smog spewing factory has on the environment, as it does the effects on the people in the town; Len gets [[IllGirl severely]] [[LittlestCancerPatient ill]] from all the smog and Rin has to work hard in a sweatshop to pay off the hospital bills. [[spoiler: Luka, a personified star, sees and hears all this and notices how everyone wishes on stars, including the twins. She then expresses guilt that she is unable to give them their wishes and [[DramaticIrony desperately wishes herself]] [[TearJerker that she could help them]]]].
* HowWeGotHere: ''Flame of Yellow Phosphorus'' opens with Rin being burned at the stake, then flashes back to what led to her execution.
* InnocentFlowerGirl: The girl in ''Flame of Yellow Phosphorus'', as a tribute of ''the Little Matchstick Girl''. Whether her innocence is real or not, depends on how you see her action.
* KarmicDeath / DeathByIrony: Rin from ''Flame of Yellow Phosphorus''. She [[spoiler:burns down her house with her father still inside,]] and is in turn executed because of the aforementioned killing via death by fire.
* KillItWithFire: In the beginning of ''Flame of Yellow Phosphorus'', Rin is shown being burned at the stake. It's later revealed that she's being executed for [[spoiler: setting fire to her home and killing her father in the process.]]
* LyricalDissonance: Mothy '''''REALLY''''' loves this trope, to the point that when he makes a "cute" song fans can't believe it, to the point that some even ''pick the lyrics apart, piece by piece'' to find some sign of a tragedy in the song. The shadow parade really takes the cake though.
* MoeAnthropomorphism: In ''Sleepless Torture Tower'', [[spoiler: the three sisters.]]
** The singer of "Watching Us" is revealed at the end to be [[spoiler:the stars, as in the ''actual'' stars in the sky]].
* NamesToRunAwayFromReallyFast: The lovely names of the sisters from ''Sleepless Torture Tower'', Gibbet, Rack and Maiden (as in ''Iron Maiden'').
* ObliviouslyEvil: The three sisters from ''Sleepless Torture Tower'' don't seem to think it's wrong to capture people and torture them until they either die or begin to enjoy it. (Granted, they seem to have it really in for people who are actually DESERVING of torture, but still.)
* RealityEnsues: A weird example in "Watching Us", since it still has a supernatural element; [[spoiler:wishing on stars doesn't really work. You can wish for miracles all you want, you'll never get them]].
* ReligionOfEvil: The "Ugly God" the Lord of Torture and his daughters worship in ''Sleepless Torture Tower''.
* ScienceFantasy: His most frequent genre of choice.
* SelfMadeOrphan: In ''Flame of Yellow Phosphorus'', [[spoiler:Rin burned down her house with her father still inside.]]
* SoloDuet: "Screws, Gears, and Pride", which features two Rins as the main singers (although Len does show up for one verse).
* StealthPun / VisualPun: From ''Flame of Yellow Phosphorus''. Rin was burnt on stake, just like how rin[[note]]Japanese for phosphorus[[/note]] on her matches burnt. Combine it with the song's title and you got a hell of pun for this tear-jerking song.
* TakeUpMySword: The three sisters of ''The Sleepless Torture Tower'' are mentioned to have picked up their duties in honour of their father.
* TitleDrop: More often than not, the last line of the chorus of ''The Sleeples Torture Tower'' is "goumontou wa nemuranai", which is the Japanese title of the song.
* TwistEnding: Mothy loves this trope. For example, ''Wendy'' is a song about the same character from Literature/PeterPan singing about flying off with Peter--and then in the end [[spoiler: it's revealed she died after jumping out the window and that she can only fly now because she's dead.]]
* UnwantedSpouse: PlayedForDrama at the end of ''White Brick and Mourning Dress''. When the girl grew up she married someone she didn't love and lived an unhappy life, and the only thing that made her happy was her son.
* VillainSong: Over half of all the songs mothy has ever made were the from the perspective of a villain.
* WhatMeasureIsANonHuman: The two Rins in ''Screws Clockwork and Pride''. They are sentient toys which were viewed as defective because they couldn't live up to the standards of their creators and ended up in a garbage processing plant because of it.
