  • Mizuki Fukumura (leader), 9th generation
  • Erina Ikuta (sub-leader), 9th generation
  • Riho Sayashi, 9th generation
  • Kanon Suzuki, 9th generation

  • Sakura Oda, 11th generation

  • Miki Nonaka, 12th generation
  • Maria Makino, 12th generation
  • Akane Haga, 12th generation

Tropes shared by Morning Musume:

  • All Girls Want Bad Boys: The lyrics in "Sexy Boy ~Soyokaze ni Yorisotte~" imply this.
  • Anti-Love Song: "Shabondama" and "Kanashimi Twilight".
  • Ascended Extra: Members are usually recruited through auditions, but Linlin, Mizuki Fukumura, Haruka Kudo, Sakura Oda, Akane Haga and Maria Makino were originally part of Hello! Project Eggs/Kenshuusei, the trainee program in Hello! Project, prior to joining.
  • Bifauxnen: Hitomi Yoshizawa. Goes to gigantic proportions in "Mr. Moonlight ~Ai no Big Band~", where Even the Girls Want Her.
    • Haruka Kudo seems to be cultivating this image in the current generation.
  • Bratty Half-Pint: Ai Kago and Nozomi Tsuji in their early days.
  • Break the Cutie: Asuka Fukuda claims to have left Morning Musume because the other members bullied her due to her young age. She is the shortest lived member and the only one to completely go back to civilian life. No longer the case as she has resurfaced as part of a group called PEACE$TONE.
    • Ai Kago as a more notorious example, having been caught in two scandals after graduating from Morning Musume. The first had her suspended indefinitely from Hello! Project activities, and the second resulted in her being dismissed from Up-Front Agency altogether.
  • Break Up Song: "Onna ni Sachi Are", "Naichau Kamo"
  • Brutal Honesty: Junjun, especially when you consider how much Japanese etiquette means the Japanese have a hard time telling people things they may not want to hear.
  • But Now I Must Go: Graduations, or when members announce their departure from the group.
  • Can't Hold Her Liquor: Kaori Iida, according to a parody version of "Love Machine" she did alongside Kei Yasuda.
  • Characters as Device: Adding Junjun and Linlin was an attempt to break out in Asia.
  • Chronological Album Title: Used for all their original studio albums. In order, they are: First Time, Second Morning, 3rd LOVE Paradise, 4th Ikimasshoi!, No.5, Ai no Dai 6 Kan, Rainbow 7, SEXY 8 BEAT, Platinum 9 DISC, 10 MY ME, Fantasy! Juuichi, 12, Smart, 13 Colorful Character, and 14shou ~The message~.
  • Color-Coded Characters: Each member has her own official image color, used to identify their merchandise and glowsticks, for example. In concerts, the members may even have a set of costumes all in their respective colors. For the current line-up:
    • Mizuki Fukumura: hot pink
    • Erina Ikuta: yellow-green
    • Riho Sayashi: red
    • Kanon Suzuki: green
    • Haruna Iikubo: honey (yellow)
    • Ayumi Ishida: blue
    • Masaki Sato: emerald green
    • Haruka Kudo: orange
    • Sakura Oda: lavender
    • The 12th gen members currently have no colors, but will be decided eventually.
  • Concert Kiss: Look for performances of "Love & Peace! HERO ga Yattekita."
    • During Sayumi Michishige's graduation concert, she was able to kiss Riho Sayashi on the lips!
  • Cover Version: "Hyokkori Hyoutanjima", "Pepper Keibu", and the cover album Cover You.
  • Cute but Cacophonic: Ai Takahashi's screams fit the dissonant sound side of the trope rather than outright volume. Also, Mari Yaguchi, who is just disproportionatly loud when provoked.
  • Dancing Is Serious Business: The signature dynamic of the current Morning Musume '14.
  • Darker and Edgier: After Hitomi Yoshizawa and Rika Ishikawa left Morning Musume, they became the human avatars for Hangry & Angry, punk-lolita mascots desighed by h.Naoto. Yoshizawa and Ishikawa continued to use the Tomboy and Girly Girl archetypes respectively.
  • Deadpan Snarker: Yuko Nakazawa, Kaori Iida
  • Everything's Better with Sparkles: Usually occurs in the PVs, but "One Two Three" and "Wakuteka Take a Chance" took it to new, memetic heights.
  • Evolving Music: Part of the ever-changing nature of the group's roster of members; as the line-up changes, so does the music they put out.
  • Fun Size: Mari Yaguchi is only 4'8"! This became part of her idea when she formed Mini Moni with Ai Kago and Nozomi Tsuji.
  • Gold Makes Everything Shiny: The music videos of "Onna ni Sachi Are" and "Kono Chikyuu no Heiwa wo Honki de Negatterun da yo!"
  • Greatest Hits Album: Currently the group has released one all-singles album (their first 34 singles) and two albums featuring all their singles' coupling tracks.
  • Grey Rain Of Depression: The music video of "Naichau Kamo" has the girls crying in the rain.
  • Hot-Blooded: Mari Yaguchi.
  • Identical Stranger: Ai Kago with T&C Bomber's RuRu.
  • Ill Girl: Eri Kamei graduated from Morning Musume because she had chronic health problems.
    • Aika Mitsui graduated earlier than expected because of an unhealed fracture in her foot, which is probably why she still remains in Hello! Project as a solo artist.
  • Intercourse with You: "Iroppoi Jirettai", "Kanashimi Twilight"
  • Intergenerational Friendship: Makoto Ogawa with Hitomi Yoshikawa.
  • Jerk Ass: Part of Miki Fujimoto's appeal.
  • Kansai Regional Accent: Yuko Nakazawa, Aika Mitsui
  • Looking for Love in All the Wrong Places: "Nanchatte Renai" talks about a girl who goes through a bunch of boyfriends trying to find love, but is unsuccessful.
  • Long Title:
    • Aozora ga Itsumademo Tsuzuku You na Mirai de Are! (Let the Future Be One Where the Blue Sky Lasts Forever!)
    • Ame no Furanai Hoshi de wa Aisenai Darou? (We Can't Love on a Planet With No Rain, Right?)
    • Kono Chikyuu no Heiwa wo Honki de Negatterun da yo! (I'm Really Wishing for Peace on This Earth!)
  • Love Confession: A lot of their songs, noticeably "Sakura Mankai"
  • Meaningful Name: Hitomi Yoshizawa got her name due to her beautiful eyes, her name could roughly be translated to english as "eye person".
  • Meaningful Rename: Beginning in 2014, Morning Musume's name would reflect the current year that the group is active, so they were named "Morning Musume '14" (pronounced "one-four") and will become "Morning Musume '15" next year. This is to help audiences identify the various members in each lineup due to there being many members who were part of Morning Musume over the course of its 15+ year-history.
  • Medley: Frequently performed in concerts.
  • Ms. Fanservice: Sayumi, though she's like us to believe she's an Innocent Fanservice Girl.
  • Naughty Nurse Outfit: Invoked for Hitomi Yoshizawa, but only for cuteness, here.
  • No Sense of Personal Space: Yuko Nakazawa, though it's really her being a bit of a Jerk Ass mixed with Comedic Sociopathy.
  • One Steve Limit:
    • Averted with Haruna Iikubo and Haruna Ogata, who are part of the same lineup as of 2014.
    • Ai Kago and Ai Takahashi were also part of the same lineup from 2001 to 2004.
  • Performance Video: "Chokkan 2 ~Nogashita Sakana wa Ookiizo!~", which features excerpts of various concert performances, and "What is LOVE?", which is a straight concert performance.
  • Perpetual Smiler: Kanon Suzuki, hardly ever seen without a big grin even while singing.
  • Pimped-Out Dress: The dresses in the music video for "Otoko to Onna no Lullaby Game", later seen on the covers of the album Fantasy! Juuichi. There will also be several of these worn as concert costumes, which are shed to reveal a more form-fitting costume underneath.
  • Promoted Fanboy: Risa Niigaki was known to be a fan of Morning Musume prior to her joining the group.
    • There's also Erina Ikuta, who as a fan of Niigaki herself, attended a fan club bus tour for Niigaki as a regular fan, going along and doing activities with the rest of the participants. Sure enough, Ikuta ended up inheriting Niigaki's yellow-green image color after the latter's graduation.
  • Pungeon Master: Kaori Iida.
  • Retail Therapy: A stanza in "Kimagure Princess" talks about the girl in the song shopping online to soothe her frustrations. Subverted when she buys too much and ends up being angry when she receives the bill.
  • Revolving Door Band
  • Rule of Symbolism: In the video for "No Hesitation", Ai Kago starts off trying to pack a large suit case and is wearing a dress but at the lyrics "Dangling my halfhearted feelings/with big baggage over my back/I don't need things like that any more" she stops, changes her clothes for a practical t-shirt, shorts and walking boots and opts to carry a backpack.
  • Running Gag: "Kame" is Japanese for turtle so whenever one of the other members sees a turtle they'll often exclaim, "There's Eri-chan!"
  • Screw the Rules, I'm Beautiful!: Sayumi
  • Self Harm: Ai Kago during her Heroic BSOD after being fired from Hello! Project by Up-Front Agency for being photographed smoking despite already being suspended for it a year earlier. She suffered from severe depression and started cutting herself. She has even admitted to having suicidal thoughts. She has since recovered, in addition to making a comeback as a musician and actress, as well as getting married and having a daughter.
  • Sexy Secretary: Yuko Nakazawa before joining Morning Musume.
  • Signature Song: "LOVE Machine"
  • Space Station: Part of the music video of "Renai Revolution 21" takes place in a Space Station. There's also a lot of funny Space Clothes involved in the wardrobe, too.
  • Stepford Smiler: "Summer Night Town"
  • Stock Foreign Name: Junjun and Linlin.
  • Take That: After her less-than-pleasant departure from Hello! Project, Ai Kago's song "No Hesitation" has a few veiled references to her time as an idol.
  • Tall, Dark and Snarky: Kaori Iida.
  • Third-Person Person: Reina Tanaka.
  • Trademark Favorite Food: Cider for Riho Sayashi.
  • Translated Cover Version: When the group starred in Cinderella The Musical in 2008, the songs by Rodgers and Hammerstein were translated into Japanese.
  • Vitriolic Best Buds: Makoto Ogawa and Rika Ishikawa with Hitomi Yoshikawa.

Put together in 2004, it was originally planned to rotate all the members of Hello! Project Kids, but stuck with the founding members. Prior to their debut, they were back-up dancers for W at their concerts and music videos ("Aa ii na!" and "Robo Kiss.")

In August 2014, the group announced that they would be going on indefinite hiatus starting in spring 2015.

  • Ascended Extra: Kanna Arihara was originally part of the trainee program, Hello! Project eggs, but was elected to become part of C-ute before the release of their first indie single to make the teams even, as Berryz Koubou and C-ute had eight and seven members at the time.
    • Maimi Yajima's screentime shot Up to Eleven after Megumi Murakami, the group's lead singer, left before their major label debut. A similar phenomenon happened to Chisato Okai, who had little to no solos, but her YouTube dance videos boosted her popularity to the point where she is also considered a main singer behind Maimi and Airi.
  • Break Up Song: "Namida no Iro"
  • Chronological Album Title: Used for all their original studio albums. In order, they are: Cutie Queen VOL.1, 2 mini ~Ikiru to Iu Chikara~, 3rd ~LOVE Escalation!~, 4 Akogare My STAR, Shocking 5, Chou WONDERFUL! 6, Dainana Shou "Utsukushikutte Gomen ne", and 8 Queen of J-pop.

    Buono! 

Buono!

Buono! was formed in 2008 as a one-shot unit to perform the opening song to Shugo Chara!, but became popular and was kept as a regular act. In comparison to other Hello! Project acts, they're more pop-rock-influenced in terms of their music and fashion. The current members consist of:

  • Momoko Tsugunaga (Berryz Koubou)
  • Miyabi Natsuyaki (Berryz Koubou)
  • Airi Suzuki (C-ute)

Tropes shared by Buono!:

Originally consisting of four members, five auditionees were added into the group as "sub-group members", but later became integrated as "full members."

In 2014, they added a 3rd generation consisting of former Hello! Project Kenshuusei and changed their name to ANGERME (pronounced "angel-me").

The members consist of:

  • Long Title:
    • 3rd major single: Onaji Jikyuu de Hataraku Tomodachi no Bijin Mama (My Friend's Mom Who Works At the Same Hourly Pay)
  • Meaningful Rename: Ayaka Wada and Kanon Fukuda decided to change S/mileage's name to coincide with the arrival of the third generation members, as it would mark a new chapter for the group.

    Country Musume / Country Girls 

Country Musume / Country Girls

Country Musume was originally formed in 1999, consisting of Hokkaido-born members and performing more folksy songs. They're partially notable, however, for the death of founding member Hiromi Yanagihara in July 1999, shortly after their first single release. Since the release of their last single in 2004, they'd been mostly on the backburner...

...until 2014, when former member Mai Satoda announced the group's return with an audition announcement. In November 2014, the new lineup was introduced, along with a name change to "Country Girls" and the addition of Berryz Koubou member Momoko Tsugunaga as "acting manager".

The current members consist of:

  • Risa Yamaki
  • Manaka Inaba
  • Chisaki Morito

Tropes shared by GAM:

    Mini Moni 

Mini Moni

Pioneered by Morning Musume member Mari Yaguchi in 2000, Mini Moni's concept was to include all of the Token Mini-Moe members from Morning Musume under the height of 150 cms. Initially starting out with Mari Yaguchi, Nozomi Tsuji, and Ai Kago of Morning Musume, Mika Todd from Coconuts Musume was later added to the team. In 2002, Yaguchi departed from the group and elected Ai Takahashi to join, raising the height requirement to 153 cms. A fictionalized account of why Yaguchi decided to leave the group was explored in their half live-action half-animated film Mini Moni ja Movie: Okashi na Dai Bouken.

Mini Moni's kid appeal made them a hit with young children, and their songs tend to be nonsensical and educational. They've collaborated with comedian Baka Tono-sama ("Ai~n!") and appeared in Hamtaro. Following Todd's departure from the group and Kago and Tsuji leaving Morning Musume in 2004, the group disbanded.

If you're Internet-savvy, you might know them because of the Dramatic Chipmunk.

W

W was a comprised of former Morning Musume members and friends Nozomi Tsuji and Ai Kago in 2004. Notable for their symmetrical choreography and similar heights, they could be mistaken as Single-Minded Twins. Unfortunately, their activities were suspended in 2006 after Kago made tabloids smoking underage. W ultimately disbanded when Kago was booted out of Hello! Project for dating an older man and smoking again.

Tropes shared by W:

    Coconuts Musume 

Coconuts Musume

Coconuts Musume was founded in 1998 when a group of girls singing caught the attention of Tsunku's bandmate while he was traveling in Hawaii. These girls were signed onto their agency as a companion sister group to the flapship band Hello! Project, Morning Musume, but faced line-up changes within their first years due to difficulties for some of the members adjusting in Japan. They haven't released anything since 2002, and technically disbanded in 2004, though Ayaka remained in Hello! Project carrying the group's name until 2008.

    Kira☆Pika 

Kira☆Pika

Kira☆Pika was a sub-group comprised of Koharu Kusumi from Morning Musume and Mai Hagiwara of C-ute with the purpose of performing the ending theme songs to Kirarin Revolution. Kusumi was already portraying protagonist Kirari Tsukishima, both in voice and in person on the children's variety show Oha Star. To promote the group, Hagiwara would play a similar role as Hikaru, a Canon Foreigner designed for the show.

Tropes specific to the characters Kusumi and Hagiwara portray should be put in the Kirarin Revolution page.

    Milky Way 

Milky Way

Morning Musume's Koharu Kusumi had a huge part in Kirarin Revolution by not only supplying the theme songs, but by also playing the protagonist, Kirari Tsukishima, in voice and in person on the children morning show Oha Star. Come the end of the show, a 3D-animated sequel, Kirarin Revolution Stage 3 was created in 2008 to continue the franchise with two new Canon Foreigners, Kobeni and Noeru, as the leads. Hello! Project Eggs You Kikkawa and Sayaka Kitahara were chosen to play those roles in the same fashion Kusumi had with Kirari. After the end of Kirarin Revolution, the group disbanded.

Tropes specific to the characters Kusumi, Kikkawa, and Kitahara portray should be put in the Kirarin Revolution page.
