[[caption-width-right:350:The primary 13 members of Super Junior.]]

Initially formed by SM Entertainment in 2005 as a rotational [[UpToEleven twelve]] member BoyBand named Super Junior '05, [[MeaningfulRename Super Junior]] is a popular [[KoreanPopMusic Korean boy band]] whose number ranges between [[PutOnABus eight]] and [[FanonDiscontinuity fifteen]] members depending on who you ask.

They're notable for being the first large South Korean idol group, splitting into sub-units (and entering the Chinese popular music industry with one such sub-unit), and making forays into acting and hosting on television programs, concerts, and radio shows. [[FollowTheLeader All of which are have become common practices in the South Korean popular music industry.]]

They're also well-known for the ridiculous amount of {{fanservice}} they provide their fans with ([[OlderThanYouThink but that's nothing new]]), and the... enthusiasm and possessiveness of said fans. While Super Junior still plays up the HoYay, their fans have relatively calmed down in later years.

All the members tropes have been moved to the Character page.
----

[[folder:Tropes in general]]
* AerithAndBob: Eeteuk, Heechul, Han Geng/Hankyung, Yesung, Kangin, Shindong, Sungmin, Eunhyuk, Siwon, Donghae, Ryeowook, Kibum, Kyuhyun, Zhou Mi, and [[OddNameOut Henry]]. While Han Geng/Hankyung and Zhou Mi's names are obviously not Korean, Henry's just sticks out as that one English name. Justified, as he's [[CanadaEh Canadian]].
* {{Bishonen}}: Most if not all of the boys are tall, slim and damn pretty.
* BoyBand: Obvious KoreanPopMusic example. One of the biggest ones too.
* TheBusCameBack:
** Kangin for the 6th album after he finished his enlistment.
** A minor example but no one has really heard from Kibum since he stopped performing with the group and he even stopped posting on social media for a while. Not long after the Mamacita promotions began, he posted to his twitter again - and fans exploded with happiness.
* TheCameo:
** They made many appearances in other artists' videos. Kibum was in The Grace's "My Everything", Siwon was in Music/GirlsGeneration's "Hoot", Sungmin acted in Music/DongBangShinKi's Banjun drama episode as Yoochun's childhood friend, and so on.
** By the other hand, some of their [=MVs=] had guests: Music/GirlsGeneration's Yoona was in "U" and "Marry U" predebut, Jessica was in "Super Girl", Music/GirlsGeneration's Sunny was in "Cooking Cooking" and {{Music/Fx}}'s Victoria was in Suju-M's "U" before f(x) made their debut.
* CastFullOfPrettyBoys: A group full of pretty guys. A given since it's a common trope in KoreanPopMusic groups too.
* CatsAreMean: Heechul's cat, Hanjayheebum -- or Heebum for short. Also, his original cat hated everyone but him.
* DarkerAndEdgier:
** The MV for their song "[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=veEh0RYy9t4 Don't Don]]" was essentially this, being edgier with bad-boy outfits and rockier music.
** The "[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tSOSxwEWFA4 Bonamana]]" MV was just a DarkerAndEdgier version of the "[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=x6QA3m58DQw Sorry Sorry]]" MV.
** Like above, [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GvTaLTTanJc A-Cha]] was a darker version of [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=r6TwzSGYycM Mr. Simple.]]
** The aesthetic difference between [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gWIkiI_UmeE Sexy, Free & Single]] and [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4GpJHF0WyAE&feature=relmfu SPY]] might not be noticeable at first, but consider the lyrical content and the bloody special effects in the latter.
* DistaffCounterpart: Since Music/GirlsGeneration started out as Super Junior's girl version, the guys played with this at the Super Show 2:
** Taeyeon: Leeteuk (both are the leaders)
** Tiffany: Kangin (both talk the most in interviews)
** Jessica: Heechul (Heechul started this at Intimate Note)
** Sunny: Sungmin (Aegyo)
** Hyoyeon: Eunhyuk (the best dancers)
** Yoona: Donghae
** Yuri: Siwon
** Sooyoung: Kyuhyun
** Seohyun: Ryeowook (she's the youngest and Ryeowook is nicknamed "The eternal maknae")
* EmbarrassingNickname: Heechul has nicknamed Siwon "[[Disney/TheLionKing Simba]]", Donghae "Disney/{{Pinocchio}}", Kibum Disney/SnowWhite". He calls himself "Disney/{{Cinderella}}", but that's not embarrassing -- just Disney ThemeNaming. He's extended this to Eunhyuk and Shindong as well, labeling them "[[Disney/TheLionKing Timon and Pumbaa]]".
* EvenTheGuysWantHim: Their fanboys are just as obsessed with them as their fangirls are.
* FakeOutMakeOut: Courtesy of [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=K2xh4MnxeYA Kyuhyun and Sungmin]] when they demonstrated this in an interview.
* FamilyBusiness: So far, the members have been advertising small businesses opened by their relatives:
** MEIHUA DUMPLINGS is Hangeng's mom's business in Beijing.
** Yesung's family opened Handel & Gretel coffee shop first, which would be closed some time later to open the Mouse Rabbit coffee shop. The shop is run by Yesung and his brother as baristas. Also, Y Style belongs to Yesung's dad.
** Kona Beans Café is owned by Kyuhyun, Sungmin and Leeteuk's mothers.
** Eunhyuk's mom owns a branch of Tous Les Jours bakery.
** Siwon was a temporary partner (for three months) of Twosome Coffee. He also averts the trope; his father owns a minimarket chain, but Siwon opted to follow the entertainment business against his father's wishes. He eventually accepted Siwon's carreer.
** Kyuhyun's dad owns three Korean language schools in Taiwan. The schools are reported to have as many as 1,800 students.
** "Shindong's [=DraQra=] PC Castle", an internet Café. [[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin Guess who owns it.]] He also has an online shopping mall.
** [=Grill5=], a taco restaurant owned by Donghae's family, with Dongwha as manager. Before it came the brothers' cafe in Taiwan, The Grand Place.
* FanService: Why Super Junior is so [[YaoiFangirl popular]]. They're masters of various kinds of this such as GuyOnGuyIsHot.
* {{Flanderization}}: Heechul and Kyuhyun being {{jerkass}}es, Sungmin being a {{Kawaiiko}} who TastesLikeDiabetes, and Donghae being a {{cloudcuckoolander}} amongst other traits in fanfiction.
* TheFriendsWhoNeverHang: The main subject of their guest appearance at the show Intimate Note, with Kangin/Sungmin and also Heechul/Eunhyuk being the main subjects .
* FollowTheLeader: The first boy band of its size, the South Korean idol industry has since then taken to churning out similarly large groups.
* FootballFightSong: [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jCdYAYPjZ4M VICTORY KOREA]] for the [[TheWorldCup 2010 FIFA World Cup]].
* FunWithAcronyms:
** Super Junior K.R.Y. = Kyuhyun, Ryeowook, Yesung. Additional letters are added sometimes, like K.R.Y.S. (+ Sungmin), K.R.Y.E.D. (+ Eunhyuk and Donghae), and K.R.Y.D. (+ Donghae).
** Also, [[DoesThisRemindYouOfAnything L.S.D.]] = unofficial trio of Leeteuk, Sungmin, and Donghae.
** There's the fanclub too. '''E'''ver'''L'''asting '''F'''riends is more widely known as E.L.F.
* FunWithForeignLanguages:
** Aside from the [[GratuitousEnglish obvious Engrish abuse]] from their shows like 'Full House', Heechul also had fun teaching Hankyung many Korean swear words.
** Everyone apparently had fun teaching Henry ridiculous pick-up lines.
* FunnyForeigner: Originally [[TokenMinority Hankyung]], whose early humor in variety shows mostly came from his difficulty to speak Korean and how the others pranked him by taking advantage of this. Then [[CanadaEh Henry]] and [[StereotypesOfChinesePeople Zhou Mi]] and similar hilarity ensued. All are Chinese.
* GameShowAppearance: Used to happen quite often when game shows were more popular in Korea. Since then, {{Talk show}}s have become more popular.
* GenreRoulette: The core group's six albums so far cover bubblegum pop, ballads of all sorts, contemporary R&B, electropop/synthpop, and an example of their label's own unique style, SMP, which mixes pop, rock and orchestral music. There's also a song on their sixth album that sounds a bit like the lovechild of trot and dubstep.
* GratuitousEnglish:
** It used to be more prevalent in their raps, but seemed to be on the decline... until 6jib came along and gave gems like "I’m ready too, Bingo" which can be easily misheard as "I'm ready to bingo".
** Taking in consideration that English is not their native language, there are notable "English Fails" moments. The most remembered example is [[EmbarrassingTattoo Kangin's tattoo]] "Actions are more ''prection'' than words".
** MAMACITA brings us Shindong's line "Close your lips, ''shut your tongue''".
%% ** On their show 'Full House'.
* GratuitousSpanish: The title of their 7th album is ''"MAMACITA"''.
* HatesBeingTouched: Averted. They are always all over each other.
* HiddenDepths: Many of the members, despite being funny and weird idols, are more than meets the eye. Special mention going to Heechul who wants to write children's books. %%Kyuhyun was mentioned but no info was given, please add more context for him.
* HotBlooded: A few members, for example Kangin is prone to death glares and Heechul will not react well if his food is touched.
* IdolSinger: Well, all of them are idols that sing.
%% * IntelligenceEqualsIsolation: Kibum, according to the fandom. Sometimes Kyuhyun as well.
* KoreanDrama: Several of them have played roles in different dramas. Most popular perhaps is ''Rainbow Romance'', which featured six of the boys in its last season (although only Kibum and Heechul were members of the main cast).
* LandslideElection: Their FIFA World Cup 2010 song: [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=x443wl5TW4U Victory]] [[http://espn.go.com/sportsnation/poll/_/id/4244/world-cup-inspired-songs Korea]]. Even the official song didn't stand a chance.
* LoadsAndLoadsOfCharacters: For a boy band. Once the largest boy band in the world, and largely responsible for the trend of larger pop groups in Korea.
* MeaningfulName: Stage names in this case; Eeteuk means '[[IJustWantToBeSpecial Special]]', Yesung means 'Art of Voice', Kangin means '[[IJustWantToBeBadAss Strong Man]]', and Shindong means 'ChildProdigy'.
* MrFanservice: All of them are prone to being touchy-feely with each other to shirtless moments.
* NoSenseOfPersonalSpace:
** A majority of the members, but the one who gets called out for it is Yesung who sneaks into the others' bedrooms at night and touches their philtrums because he likes the feel of it.
** Siwon. He likes exchanging hugs and kisses with the other members so much that he has been hit for it.
* NotAMorningPerson:
** Eeteuk. Despite being leader, the others mention him as the [[HeavySleeper last and hardest to wake up]].
** Kangin as well. In one of their early shows, the members had to work together to wake him up by pulling duct tape off of him and spraying water on him.
%% * OddCouple: Leeteuk and Kangin.
* OlderThanTheyLook: Most of the boys haven't physically aged since their debut in 2005. Especially Leeteuk and Heechul who were born in 1983.
* PetTheDog: Heechul enjoyed making fun of Chinese member Hankyung for his own enjoyment, yet when Hankyung was insulted with racist remarks by people outside of their dorms, Heechul and several of the others went out to beat the guys up.
* PrecisionFStrike:
** While in the middle of a mob of Chinese fans at an airport, Donghae let out a frustrated "Move, fuck!" and was immediately attacked for it.
** An incident in December 2011 during which SM Entertainment's mistreatment of them affected their fans as well pushed some of the boys too far, leading to a series of outbursts on Twitter--including the religious, gentlemanly Siwon.
** A minor one: Henry's appearance on Weekly Idol started with a game they like to play where they cut and mixed up sections of his song "1-4-3" to see if he would still be able to dance to it smoothly. He didn't the first two times which led to him getting a powerful flick to the forehead and a (rubber) hammer to his head. The third time, he almost had it but then he paused and said "SHOOOOOOOOOT!" He was then treated to something called Seoul Sightseeing. [[DontExplainTheJoke It had nothing to do with sightseeing.]]
* PutOnABus:
** Kibum started his indefinite hiatus in 2009 in pursuit of an acting career.
** Kangin after his BarBrawl and [[DrunkDriver DUI hit and run]]. He later joined the South Korean military for his two years of mandatory service instead of returning to the group.
* RagtagBunchOfMisfits: One of the main attributes of Super Junior, unlike other boybands, is how unique and different from each other are every single one of them. There's the MrFanservice Siwon, the flamboyant Heechul, the BigFun Shindong, TheCutie Ryeowook, the BadassAdorable Sungmin, the BrainyBrunette Kyuhyun, TeamMom Leeteuk, LovableJock Kangin, butt monkey Eunhyuk, the adorkable Donghae, the TokenMinority Chinese member Hangeng, the strange yet talented Yesung and TheQuietOne Kibum. It has been said also that the group was made of all the trainees who didn't seem to fit in other groups for not meeting "specific characteristics", and even the agency didn't expect for Super Junior 05' to gather a good fanbase.
* RealMenWearPink: Heechul and Sungmin especially love wearing pink, but all have done so at some point.
* RummageSaleReject: Pretty much everybody in the fifth album concept photos had weird mismatching outfits, with [[https://kpop007love.files.wordpress.com/2012/05/leeteuk-2.jpg Leeteuk]] being one of the worst with his two red and blue coats and colourful... rope {{Sarashi}}.
* SerenadeYourLover:
** Where lover = TV wife, with Leeteuk (a) calling his ''We Got Married'' partner Kang Sora up on stage during his "She" number in Super Show 4 for a "proposal", and (b) allegedly writing a love song for her in their sixth album.
** Meanwhile, lover = fandom in Super Junior classics "Marry U" and "From U".
* ShesGotLegs: Gender-inverted.
** Zhou Mi. They're very skinny, and VERY long, and hit outfits often show this off.
** Sungmin and Kyuhyun may also count; fans tend to pay special attention to their 'honey thighs'.
** Heechul's attractive lady legs as Lady Hee Hee. Enough said.
%% ** There's Leeteuk in Single Ladies.
* SickeninglySweethearts: Played straight by the Eunhyuk/Donghae and Yesung/Ryeowook pairs when the boys wrote, directed, and starred in their own mini-drama about being YaoiGuys with a TwistEnding.
* SmokingIsCool: How some fans see some of the members' smoking habits. Others are dismayed because of the potential vocal damage.
* SpellMyNameWithAnS: Leeteuk/Eeteuk, Hankyung/Han Geng, Yesung/Yehsung, Shiwon/Siwon, Gyuhyun/Kyuhyun.
* SpotlightStealingSquad: Main vocalists Yesung-Ryeowook-Kyuhyun for singing, main dancers Shindong-Eunhyuk-Donghae for dancing, and well-known personalities Eeteuk-Heechul-Kangin for variety shows.
* StageNames: Eeteuk's real name is Park Jungsoo, Yesung's real name is Kim Jongwoon, Kangin's real name is Kim Youngwoon, Eunhyuk's real name is Lee Hyukjae and Shindong's real name is Shin Donghee.
* StalkerWithACrush: Their fanclub's prone to following the members in ways that are beyond creepy.
* StepfordSmiler:
** Leeteuk (one of the more cheerful, upbeat and talkative members) is an extreme case of Type A. When asked about his life with his parents as a child, Leeteuk revealed while crying that not only was their relationship bad, but they abused him often to the point where he began hating and being afraid of his own father -- yet for the most part, he continues to smile. [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_AeU7q8tFrI It's very sad and eerie to watch.]] He also used to run a club for depressed idols, to back this up a little.
** All of Super Junior and even most idols could be considered a watered down case of this too. Depression is very common within the Kpop scene, although Leeteuk does seem to be a very worrying example of it being a reality.
%% * TalkativeLoon: Eeteuk, Heechul, Yesung, Kangin. Actually, most of them.
* TookALevelInBadass: How they all appeared in the DarkerAndEdgier "Don't Don" MV, especially Kyuhyun who had just recovered from a major accident months prior.
* TrademarkFavoriteFood: Heechul in regards to Hankyung's Beijing Fried Rice, Sungmin with sweet pumpkins, and Eunhyuk with strawberries.
* ThroughHisStomach: The main theme of Suju-H's "Cooking? Cooking!"
* TruckDriversGearChange: Happens often in their ballads, always involving KRY. Especially Yesung.
* TurtlePower: Yesung has three turtles, who are considered his kids.
* VitriolicBestBuds: Heechul, Kangin, and sometimes Yesung, as they're prone to throwing insults at each other. Yesung usually ends up the butt-money though.
* VolleyingInsults: Yesung and Kangin's letters to each other are full of these. All with love.
%% ** Heechul has proven ''very'' good at this.
* WackyMarriageProposal:
** Shindong proposed to his not-so-secret girlfriend in the ''Thanks To'' notes for their fourth album. In a number code, that was cracked by fans before it was cracked by any of the other members or his girlfriend. They eventually and unfortunately broke up later on, however.
** Leeteuk dragged his "wife" Kang Sora on-stage to propose at a concert, serenading her while handing her a rose then presenting the ring. Which turned out to be too big. [[ConcertKiss So he hugged her to make up for it]].
* WholesomeCrossdresser:
** Many of the boys have had their turns, although Heechul does it not only for performances and shows but to disguise himself while out on dates.
** Most spectacular example to date: Lady [=HeeHee=], from the boys' Super Show 3 concert series. [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KyX0KXP57mM Approved by Mother Monster herself.]]
* WithFriendsLikeThese: Again, Heechul, Kangin, and Yesung, who are friends yet bicker with one another very much.

[[folder:Attack on the Pin Up Boys movie]]
* AbsurdlyPowerfulStudentCouncil: Literally. Siwon and Ryeowook have telekinesis. Ryeowook is still learning, thought.
* AffectionateParody: Their movie "Attack on the Pin-Up Boys" was a parody of the [[IdolSinger idol culture]], obsessions with passing fads, and the life of a teenager set in a HighSchoolAU. The second half of the film dips into DeconstructiveParody territory though as it becomes more introspective than the first half.
* AttackBackfire:
** Turns out the attacks with shit bags made the targets even more popular than before, and that's the reason Siwon, Heechul and Kangin are trying to get attacked as well.
** [[spoiler: After Donghae discovers this and confronts Kibum, he expresses how annoying it turned when the attack backfired, so for the last attack, they make Donghae popular. Donghae later states being famous is annoying as well.]]
* AttentionWhore: Since they all are driven by ItsAllAboutMe motivation, Heechul is the one who exhibits this more than the others.
* ChickMagnet:
** Sungmin, Hangeng and Yesung had hordes of fangirls behind them all the time. The groups increased after their attacks.
** Heechul also has control over the ballet club, who let his dance crew practice at their space.
* TheCutie: First victim Sungmin, to the point where he's covered in St. Valentine's candy just opening his locker and a fangirl gives him a dolfie (And those dolls are EXPENSIVE).
%% * DumbMuscle: Kangin's character in their movie.
* FreudianTrio: In the two small clubs of the school
** Dance Club:
*** ID: Heechul
*** Ego: Shindong
*** Super Ego: Donghae
** Judo Club:
*** ID: Kangin
*** Ego: Eunhyuk
*** Super Ego: Panda
** The "Shit-candidates":
*** ID: Heechul
*** Ego: Kangin
*** Super Ego: Siwon
%% * LovableJock: Foreign exchange basketball superstar Hankyung is said to be this.
%% * HeterosexualLifePartners: Kibum and Donghae's characters are established as this, for the pleasure of the Kihae fans.
* ItsAllAboutMe: Why the self-centered Heechul, Kangin and Siwon try to draw the attacker's attention.
* ObfuscatingStupidity: Donghae plays along as a comic foil for the detective main character Kibum. [[spoiler: Donghae is who solves the mystery first.]]
%% * OnlySaneMan: Kibum.
* OrdinaryHighSchoolStudent: Invoked by Kibum, who opens the movie with this exposition speech.
* RedHerring: [[spoiler: The viewer is led to believe Kibum is suspecting Donghae to be the culprit, since Donghae sneaked out of the detention day when Siwon was attacked.]]
* TheReveal: Subverted with The Panda. [[spoiler: The ending song reveals Leeteuk was the Panda. As a Trivia, Ryeowook was the one playing the Panda during the filming.]]
%% * TheRockStar: Yesung and Dark Circle become this after the attack.
* SeriesMascot / TeamPet: The Panda.
* SherlockScan:
** [[spoiler: With only one visit to the place of the crime, Kibum could tell Siwon lied about being attacked.]]
** [[spoiler: At the same time subverted, since Kibum was the culprit, so there was no way Siwon could have been attacked the day his whole class was on detention at school.]]
** [[spoiler: Donghae solves the puzzle after a series of details from Kibum. What made it all clear was that Kibum never flushed the toilet when he left the cubicle.]]
* TheStoic: Student Council President Siwon. He even struggles to keep calm after a teacher shakes his hands... seconds after he was massaging his own feet.
* ThoseTwoGuys: Eunhyuk and the panda for the judo club, and Donghae and Shindong for the dance club.
* UnreliableNarrator: Kibum is the Hero investigating the attacker's pattern and doing so terribly, [[spoiler: later turns out he was the culprit]].
%% * VitriolicBestBuds: Kangin and Heechul become this at the end of the movie.
* YesMan: Ryeowook is Siwon's personal Lackey / TheDragon / YesMan.
