Tokio Hotel is a rock band from Magdeburg, Germany. They are made up of identical twins Bill (vocalist) and Tom (guitarist) Kaulitz, drummer Gustav Schäfer and bassist Georg Listing. Although first formed in 2001 under the name Devilish, they received international mainstream success in 2007 after the release of their second German album ''Zimmer 483'' and their first English album ''Scream''.

The band is most popular with young girls and [[http://en.sevenload.com/videos/MRTQoE1-Tokio-Hotel-08-03-11-Taff-Verruckte-TH-Fans-Susanne middle-aged women]] due to their catchy sound and, er, unique visual appearance. That was, of course, until the [[MemeticMutation the Internet got a hold of them]]. Or a hold of Bill, at least.

!! ''Tokio Hotel'' provides examples of the following tropes:
* CelebrityIsOverrated: A lot of Bill's lyrics are about how being famous made him feel alienated from the world, especially in the song "Humanoid".
* CoverVersion: The band covered "Instant Karma" by John Lennon.
* DisappearedDad: The twins' father.
* DownerEnding: The German version of their music video "Spring Nicht/Don't Jump" ends with Bill letting himself fall backwards off a tall building.
* DudeLooksLikeALady: Bill Kaulitz and, arguably, Tom Kaulitz (although maybe not anymore). Encyclopedia Dramatica has a page on Bill that refers to him entirely as a hot woman.
** His 2013 look [[AvertedTrope averts]] this, as he now sports [[http://www.tokiohotelamerica.com/mag/wp-content/uploads/2013/03/bk483.png a mustache and a beard]], as well as [[http://24.media.tumblr.com/4e8b8a03bb431fe005a9911132c65895/tumblr_mjx5w2tt201qbpslgo1_500.jpg muscular hairy arms]].
* EvenTheGuysWantHim: Bill, especially if DudeLooksLikeALady is kicking in.
* MrFanservice: The twins, especially Bill.
* GarageBand: They started out this way.
* {{Guyliner}}: Bill
* HotterAndSexier: When the band first reached success, Bill's use of makeup and his general style was meant to look more punk-rock than anything. However, as he grew up, he effectively turned into a sexy bishonen and is now widely recognized for his sex appeal. At one point he was called "the most beautiful face since Elizabeth Taylor" and recently won the "Sexiest Vegetarian" award.
* HumongousMecha: Their "Automatic/Automatisch" music video.
* IntercourseWithYou: The song "Reden", which in English means "to talk". The actual song is definitely not about talking.
** "Human Connect to Human" and "Down on You"
* JerkAss: Tom Kaulitz borders on this during interviews.
* MetalScream: "[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=suRNNOeDIEA SCHREEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEIIII!!!!]]"
* MindScrew: The "Rette Mich" video.
* NewSoundAlbum: "Humanoid", turning the band's genre from rock to... electro? Definitely a change, but since live instruments are still used, their sound is still recongnizable.
* EeriePaleSkinnedBrunette: Bill.
* ParentalAbandonment: The twins' dad.
* PrettyFlyForAWhiteGuy: Tom Kaulitz.
* RagingStiffie: Tom Kaulitz illegally took Viagra in Taiwan and apparently had a boner for three days.
* SeriousBusiness: Bill Kaulitz is so beloved that he is ''immortalized in wax.''
* SmokingIsCool
* StalkerWithACrush: Many angry fans accuse AdamLambert to be this because of how he seems to copy Bill's style and outfit choices. The fact that he has stated on multiple occasions that he does, indeed, have a crush on Bill doesn't help.
* TakeThat: At the Golden Kamera awards, Bill, instead of the usual acceptance speech, proceeded to give a sarcastic thank you to everyone who called him [[MistakenForGay gay]], anorexic, etc, and was basically a big "fuck you" to all the ridiculous rumors they had been barraged with.
* TheRival: Cinema Bizarre and Killerpilze are fellow German bands consisting of bishonen, and both said some nasty things about the band in the past.
* ThoseTwoGuys: Georg and Gustav.
