!!Shiina Ringo and her music provide examples of:

* AlliterativeName: Her first two albums, ''Muzai Moratorium'' and ''Shouso Strip''.
* AnimatedMusicVideo: The PV for "Mayonaka wa Junketsu" is completely animated apparently because at the time Shiina was pregnant.
** The PV for "Tsugou no ii Karada" features Shiina dancing around with [[AnimateInanimateObject animate inanimate objects]].
** All of the [=PVs=] for ''Heisei Fuuzoku'' are animated in some form or another.
* AutoTune
** The a cappella intro of "Ikiru."
** "Hatsukoi Shoujo" has Ringo's voice synthesized.
** "Netsuai Hakkakuchu", being a collaboration between Ringo and [[Music/{{Perfume}} Nakata]] [[Music/KyaryPamyuPamyu Yasutaka]].
* BigRockEnding: "Denpa Tsuushin" has this.
* BrotherSisterTeam: She has done some duets with her brother Junpei, notably for "Kono Yo no Kagiri".
* CallingYourAttacks: Shiina calls out "Gitaa!" before guitar solos in "Ringo no Uta" and "Himitsu", the opening tracks of Tokyo Jihen's first two albums.
** She calls this out during the concert performance of "Handsome Sugite" as well.
* CleavageWindow: One of her outfits in "Netsuai Hakkakuchu".
* ConceptAlbum: Possibly Shouso Strip, despite the fact that it features three A-sides. Its first six tracks deal with some sort of crime, and the last six deal with some form of punishment. The middle track is titled "Tsumi to Batsu" ("Crime and Punishment").
* CoverAlbum: ''Utaite Myori ~Sono Ichi~''.
* CreatorThumbprint: Symmetry. Just look at the track listings for most of her albums to see an example.
** It's worth pointing out that not only are the number of characters in each song symmetrical, but frequently the scripts used are symmetrical as well. For example, the first and eleventh tracks on ''Kalk Samen Kuri no Hana'' have two Kanji characters in their titles, while the second and tenth have eight katakana characters, and so on. Even when the characters themselves aren't symmetrical, she'll sometimes make the track listings symmetrical in other ways; for example, the even-numbered track titles on each disc of ''Utaite Myōri ~Sono Ichi~'' are written in English, while the odd-numbered ones are in Japanese (which does not always match with the language(s) sung in the songs).
* ADateWithRosiePalms: The PV for "Tadanaranu Kankei" certainly has... suggestive imagery. Nothing explicit, but considering the large amount of wasted tissues and Ringo's penchant for DoubleEntendre...
* DeliberatelyMonochrome: The PV for "Handsome Sugite".
* DistinctDoubleAlbum: Shiina's cover album ''Utaite Myori ~Sono Ichi~'' has two discs, Mori-Pact and Kame-Pact, produced by Toshiyuki Mori and Seiji Kameda respectively.
* EverythingIsAnInstrument: Guitarist Ukigumo is specifically credited as playing the vacuum cleaner in the intro of "Yattsuke Shigoto."
** The PV for "Kono Yo no Kagiri" combines this with MickeyMousing, resulting in such interesting combinations as bread being played like a violin and leeks as trumpets.
* ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin: ''Noudouteki Sanpunkan'' (literally "An Active Three Minutes") is exactly three minutes long.
* FakeOutFadeOut: {{Inverted|Trope}} by "Izonshou," the last track on ''Shouso Strip''. The song ends with a three-minute instrumental section, which begins to fade out over the last minute--and then the music is cut immediately, when the album reaches the 55:55 mark.
* {{Fanservice}}: ''[[NaughtyNurseOutfit "Honnou"]]''.
* FourIsDeath: ''Kalk Samen Kuri no Hana'' is 44:44.4 long (and the last song is titled "Souretsu," translated "Funeral").
* GenreBusting: ''Kalk Samen Kuri no Hana'' is a little... unique to classify, [[NeoclassicalPunkZydecoRockabilly even for Shiina Ringo standards]].
* GrandFinale: For Tokyo Jihen, the "Bon Voyage" concert. It had a total of ''30 songs''.
* GratuitousEnglish: Notably averted, partially thanks to a two-month stay in London.
** Though her pronounciation on [[Music/TheBeatles "Yer Blues"]] is still a bit off in places.
* GratuitousForeignLanguage: She has, aside from English, also sung in French, German, and Portuguese.
* HeartbeatSoundtrack: A very quiet one can be heard in the beginning of "Shuukyou".
* IconicItem: Her mole. It was still part of her character long after she got one of them removed.
* LiveAlbum: The first CD of ''Zeccho Shuu'', ''Tokyo Collection'', and ''Mitsugetsu Shou''.
* LoudnessWar: Except ''Muzai Moratorium'', practically every album she's made (solo or with Tokyo Jihen) is brickwalled in some way or the other, with ''Shouso Strip'' being the worst offender. Considering the amount of control she has over her music and her eccentric personality, it can be argued that she does it on purpose.
* LyricalDissonance: Considering the broad variety of her songs, this was bound to pop up. "Aisaika no Choushoku", "Zettai Zetsumai" and the album version of "Yattsuke Shigoto" are particularly egregious offenders.
* MarketBasedTitle: Tokyo Jihen's album titles and the band's name is translated as Tokyo Incident's on their album covers.
* MediumBlending: As noted above, the PV for "Tsugou no ii Karada" is part animated and part live-action.
* NeoclassicalPunkZydecoRockabilly: Goes between rock, j-pop, classical, jazz, electronica, and various other genres at the flip of a hat.
* NewSoundAlbum: ''Kalk Samen Kuri no Hana''. It performed worse than its predecessor commercially (dropping from 2.3 million to 400,000 in sales) but better critically.
* OminousPipeOrgan: Halfway through "Souretsu".
* PopStarComposer: Shiina was asked to do the music for Japanese film ''Sakuran''.
* {{Scatting}}: Shiina did this often in her earlier solo career.
* {{Sideboob}}: Her outfit without the jacket in "Tsumi to Batsu" shows some.
* SomethingCompletelyDifferent: In the middle of their "Bon Voyage" concert, the other band members take the stage in singing "Ice Cream no Uta". Right after that, they play the bonus stage music from VideoGame/IceClimber.
* SpellingSong: Tokyo Jihen's song "F.O.U.L."
* SpellMyNameWithAnS: Invoked. Her stage name is now most commonly romanized as "Shiina Ringo," but it has also been officially romanized as "Sheena Ringo," "Sheena Rinngo," and "Shéna [[HeavyMetalUmlaut Ringö]]"
* StageNames: Her first name, Yumiko, is changed to Ringo, which means "apple" (referring to the color her face would turn when embarrassed as a child).
** On another note, many of the Tokyo Jihen members went by stage names as well, save for Kameda Seiji. (A few of them just went for AlternateCharacterReading.)
* ThemeNaming: Each of Tokyo Jihen's albums is named after a television genre (''Kyouiku'' means "education" and ''Daihakken'' means "discovery").
** After announcing their final EP, ''color bars,'' [[FridgeBrilliance they announced that they'd be disbanding]].
* TranslatedCoverVersion: On occasion, Shiina will do covers of her own songs in English e.g. "Yokushitsu" and "le salle de bain", "Kuki" and "Stem", etc.
* TrrrillingRrrs: She's toned it down since ''Shouso Strip''.
* VideoFullOfFilmClips: Shiina's PV for the song "Stem" contains clips from her short film ''Tanpen Kinema Hyaku-Iro Megane''.
* WomanInWhite: The PV for "Shuraba". Also invokes AsceticAesthetic, as the only other colour in it is [[WhiteShirtOfDeath red]].
* ZettaiRyouiki: "Netsuai Hakkakuchu" mentions it by name. Ringo wears a Rank A in the PV as well.
