ROVIX the mascot

VIXX is a six-member K pop boy band debuting on May 24, 2012. Notable for their quickly-growing fanbase. The group consists of:
  • N, the leader and vocalist,
  • Leo, a main vocalist,
  • Ken, the other main vocalist,
  • Ravi, the lead rapper,
  • Hongbin, vocalist and rapper,
  • and Hyuk, the maknae and dancer.

VIXX shows the following tropes:

  • All There in the Manual: Apparently Leo is the DJ for VIXX TV.
  • Ambiguously Brown: N is subject to many jokes.
  • Ambiguous Disorder: Many people tend to think that Leo is suffering from one of these due to his extreme camera shyness.
  • Artistic License - Physics: On and On. Launching people to outer space will cause the G-forces to crush them. Unless if they're not humans at all.
  • Berserk Button: The other members enjoy setting Leo off. Also, when it comes to sports Leo is super competitive.
  • Big Brother Mentor: Singers; Park Hyo Shin, Sung Shi Kyung, and Seo In Gook to VIXX
  • Bloodier and Gorier: The Hyde music video was this compared to On and On, but the music video for Voodoo Doll makes both of them seem pleasant by comparison.
  • Boy Band
  • Bunny-Ears Lawyer: All of them are quirky people (save Hongbin and Hyuk), but all of them can sing, dance and rap like no one's business.
  • Catch Phrase: 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..."
  • Cloud Cuckoo Lander: Mostly Ken.
  • Cool Shades: Ravi and Leo often sport these.
  • Darker and Edgier: The music video for "On and On" is definitely this compared to "Super Hero" and "Rock Ur Body". It's been turned up to eleven with "Hyde".
  • Defrosting Ice King: Leo seems to be ever so slowly warming up to cameras lately. Ever so slowly.
  • Designated Parents: N is often referred to as the Mom, while Leo is sometimes mentioned as the dad.
  • Eye Scream: All over the place in the Voodoo Doll MV.
  • Hates Being Touched: Leo, unless he initiates it.
  • Fanboy: Hongbin is a huge fan of the singer Park Hyo Shin.
  • Fan Community Nick Names: Rovix (yes, their robot mascot) posted a tweet saying that the official fan name is "St★rlight" (Starlight).
  • Female Gaze: Like N and his butt for example.
  • Good Wings, Evil Wings‎: Music video for "Hyde"
  • Gratuitous English: 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!").
  • Headphones Equal Isolation: Leo often listens to music in the car while the others talk during VIXX TV.
  • He Cleans Up Nicely: Compare current Ken with predebut Ken. It's pretty interesting what hair, make up and a removal of glasses can do.
  • He's Got Legs: Most of the members are over 180cm tall.
  • I Just Want to Be Normal: "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.
  • Kaleidoscope Hair: 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..
  • Instant Awesome, Just Add Mecha: Rovix
  • The Leader: "Hello, I am leader N."
  • 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 Voodoo Doll.
  • Lucky Charms Title: The official to write the fan name is St★rlight.
  • Mascot: Rovix, the robot head that appears on much of their clothing and accessories.
  • Marionette Motion: A lot of the choreography in Voodoo Doll utilizes this.
  • Not so Above It All: Leo, again, during those rare moments where he joins the others in whatever antics they're doing.
  • Older Than They Look: Guys N's age are jealous of his youthful looks.
  • People Puppets: In the music video for Voodoo Doll, which of course leads to its logical conclusion.
  • Pet the Dog: Nothing stands between Leo and an adorable animal.
  • Reality Show: VIXX TV and MTV Diary are the "day in the life" variety, and My Dol is the competition variety.
  • Shirtless Scene: A certain tag for My Dol had all 10 members shirtless and covered in mud.
  • Shout-Out:
    • 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 Skyrim at one point or another.
    • The lyrics of Hyde is inspired by Jekyll & Hyde. They also had mini-albums entitled "Jekyll" and "Hyde".
  • Six Student Clique:
    • 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.
  • Slice of Life: VIXX TV, the show that N (and sometimes Ravi and Ken) host on their YouTube Channel, RealVIXX.
  • So Unfunny It's Funny: Ken is the main offender.
  • Stage Names:
    • 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.
  • Tall, Dark and Snarky: Our dear Leo, we love him so.
