->[[CatchPhrase Real V! V-I-X-X! We are VIXX!]]

'''VIXX''' (Korean: 빅스, Japanese: ヴィックス, acronym for Voice, Visual, Value in Excelsis) is a [[KoreanPopMusic South Korean]] {{boy band}} that debuted on May 24, 2012 under Jellyfish Entertainment. Notably, rather than being assembled by their label as per the norm for idol groups, the 6 members were chosen through a elimination-style reality TV show called ''MyDOL'' in which 10 trainees competed against each other; only the final 6 made the cut and were allowed to debut as VIXX.

Jellyfish Entertainment's first and only idol group, VIXX started out with a rather generic, saccharine boy band sound and a lackluster debut. It wasn't until 2013 that they made a name for themselves with the single ''[[DarkerandEdgier On and On]]'', marking a reinvention in image and artistic direction for the group. Soon after, they netted their first music show win with ''Voodoo Doll'', and they haven't looked back since. Though 2013 is considered their breakout year, the successes of ''Eternity'' and ''Error'' in 2014 solidified them as one of the industry's emerging boy groups, with a growing domestic and international fanbase.

Nowadays, they're known for their onstage charisma, superb choreography, and willingness to embrace incredibly [[BloodierandGorier dark]], [[NightmareFuel disturbing]], or otherwise unorthodox concepts and subject matter for their songs - ones that most boy bands wouldn't even dare to touch - and run with them. As a result, they've run afoul of the [[MediaWatchdog KMRB]] twice, with their music videos for ''Hyde'' and ''Voodoo Doll'' both being slapped with 19+ ratings for their "horrific" imagery. Nevertheless, the boys are known to be [[MeanCharacterNiceActor very personable]] and [[BunnyEarsLawyer very silly]] when not in "performance mode".

----
!![=VIXX=] shows the following tropes:

* AllThereInTheManual: Apparently Leo is the DJ for VIXX TV.
* AmbiguouslyBrown: N is subject to many jokes.
* AmbiguousDisorder: Many people tend to think that Leo is suffering from one of these due to his extreme camera shyness.
* ArtisticLicensePhysics: On and On. Launching people to outer space will cause the G-forces to crush them. Unless if they're not humans at all.
* BerserkButton: The other members enjoy setting Leo off. Also, when it comes to sports Leo is super competitive.
* BigBrotherMentor: Singers; Park Hyo Shin, Sung Shi Kyung, and Seo In Gook to VIXX
* BloodierAndGorier: The ''Hyde'' music video was this compared to ''On and On'', but the music video for ''Voodoo Doll'' makes both of them [[NightmareFuel seem pleasant by comparison.]]
* BoyBand
* BunnyEarsLawyer: All of them are quirky people (save Hongbin and Hyuk), but all of them can sing, dance and rap like no one's business.
* CatchPhrase: Everyone in the group (save Leo) has said "Wow!" at least three times, but Ken and N seem to be the worst offenders. Also, Ken and "Otokaji~?" ("What do we do~?") In fact, he has a song for it, consisting of only that word. And then there's Hyuk and "Bum-babum-babum..."
* CloudCuckooLander: Mostly Ken.
* CoolShades: Ravi and Leo often sport these.
* {{Cyborg}}: In their music video for [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IF8kySIcWNw "Error"]] the boys become rather depressed but handsome cyborgs
* DarkerAndEdgier: The music video for [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5_06KQ1y0zc "On and On"]] is definitely this compared to "Super Hero" and "Rock Ur Body". It's been [[TurnedUpToEleven turned up to eleven]] with [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Le0CwBy4SaQ "Hyde"]].
** Taken [[UpToEleven even further]] with [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MOG7BexjPjM "Voodoo Doll"]], which was so much DarkerAndEdgier that it ended up getting [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=r0UIiq4aZ_w a clean version]].
* [[DefrostingIceQueen Defrosting Ice King:]] Leo seems to be ever so slowly warming up to cameras lately. Ever so slowly.
* DesignatedParents: N is often referred to as the Mom, while Leo is sometimes mentioned as the dad.
* EyeScream: All over the place in the ''Voodoo Doll'' MV.
* HatesBeingTouched: Leo, unless he initiates it.
* {{Fanboy}}: Hongbin is a [[https://www.dailymotion.com/video/x249a5j huge fan]] of the singer Park Hyo Shin.
* FanCommunityNickNames: Rovix (yes, their robot mascot) posted a tweet saying that the official fan name is "St★rlight" (Starlight).
* FemaleGaze: [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9TNTcC-aAX8 Like N and his butt]] for example.
* GoodWingsEvilWings‎: Music video for "Hyde"
* GratuitousEnglish: Ravi, at the beginning of Super Hero ("Show we gonna make it rookie's time, race is exciting!"); it was to the point where English speakers were wondering if he was speaking English. He gets better in Rock Ur Body, though ("Let the games begin/ Check it out, V I double X in da house!").
* HeadphonesEqualIsolation: Leo often listens to music in the car while the others talk during VIXX TV.
* [[SheCleansUpNicely He Cleans Up Nicely]]: Compare current Ken with predebut Ken. It's pretty interesting what hair, make up and [[TheGlassesGottaGo a removal of glasses]] can do.
* [[ShesGotLegs He's Got Legs]]: Most of the members are over 180cm tall.
* IJustWantToBeNormal: "I Don't Want to Be an Idol" is about a idol that falls in love with a girl, but can't do any of the things that normal couples can do without fangirls and paparazzi following them.
* KaleidoscopeHair: Everyone's (except Leo's) hair changes every once in a while, but Ravi is notable for changing his hair color four times in a six month period..
* InstantAwesomeJustAddMecha: Rovix
* TheLeader: "Hello, I am leader N."
* [[LighterandSofter Lighter and Softer]]: Their MV for "Because the Answer is You" or "Only U." It was filmed while they were on tour, and basically consists of them walking around Stockholm in semi-formal clothing.
** The ''Eternity'' music video counts as well, for being the relatively tame, if melancholic, direct successor to [[DarkerAndEdgier Voodoo]] [[BloodierAndGorier Doll]].
* LuckyCharmsTitle: The official to write the fan name is St★rlight.
* {{Mascot}}: Rovix, the robot head that appears on much of their clothing and accessories.
* MarionetteMotion: A lot of the choreography in ''Voodoo Doll'' utilizes this.
* NotSoAboveItAll: Leo, again, during those rare moments where he joins the others in whatever antics they're doing.
* OlderThanTheyLook: Guys N's age are jealous of his youthful looks.
* PeoplePuppets: In the music video for ''Voodoo Doll'', which of course leads to [[PlayingWithPuppets its logical conclusion.]]
* PetTheDog: Nothing stands between Leo and an adorable animal.
* RealityShow: VIXX TV and MTV Diary are the "day in the life" variety, and MyDol is the competition variety.
* ShirtlessScene: A certain tag for MyDol had all 10 members shirtless and covered in mud.
* ShoutOut:
** Fangirls have been going crazy that "On and On" has a bit of Phantom of the Opera in it.
** In the video for their single Hyde, all six members sport some of the face paint options from ''[[VideoGame/TheElderScrollsVSkyrim Skyrim]]'' at one point or another.
** The lyrics of Hyde is inspired by Jekyll & Hyde. They also had mini-albums entitled "Jekyll" and "Hyde".
* SixStudentClique:
** N: The Head by position as the leader.
** Hyuk: The Quirk, as during one episode of MTV Diary, he went to go play in a park. He's 18.
** Hongbin: The Pretty One, being the "visual" of the group.
** Leo: The Muscle, knowing taekwondo and boxing, plus having the biggest arms and a six pack.
** Ravi: The Smart One, who sometimes says meaningful and profound things.
** Ken: The Wild One, being the most hyper one in the group.
* SliceOfLife: VIXX TV, the show that N (and sometimes Ravi and Ken) host on their YouTube Channel, [[http://www.youtube.com/user/realvixx RealVIXX.]]
* SoUnfunnyItsFunny: Ken is the main offender.
* StageNames:
** Leo's real name is Jung Taekwoon.
** N's real name is Cha Hakyeon.
** Ken's real name is Lee Jaehwan.
** Ravi's real name is Kim Wonshik.
* TallDarkAndSnarky: Our dear Leo, we love him so.
