These are what we call the 'YMMV items.' Things that some people find in this work. We call them 'your mileage might vary' because not everyone sees these things in the same way. This starts discussions in the trope lists, a thing we don't want. Please use the discussion page if you'd like to discuss any of these items.
Fan Dumb: When reports of Dougie entering rehab claimed it was mostly due to depression over his breakup with his equally-famous ex-girlfriend, she received plenty of death threats from angry McFly fans over it.
Harsher in Hindsight: The video for 'That's the Truth', showing Dougie behaving in a depressed manner following a breakup becomes a bit cringeworthy to watch following reports that Dougie has gone into rehab after struggling to cope with his rather public breakup with long-term girlfriend Frankie Sandford, of girlband The Saturdays.
In the video for All About You, the security guard (Played by Harry Hill) wears a badge saying "I'm a Busted fan". (Coincidentally the video was filmed on the same day Busted announced their split.) This becomes hysterical in light of the two bands teaming up for a tour.
Hollywood Pudgy: In the early years, Tom was often mocked for being fat. He may have been slightly bigger than the other members, but certainly not a fatass◊. He's lost weight since then, but Tom openly refers to his early-McFly appearance as "Fat Tom".
Ho Yay: Dougie and Harry are often quite physically affectionate with each other. They might play this up as Fanservice. Any conceivable pairing between the four of them has its moments, though, do to the Heterosexual Life-Partners nature of their relationships.
Tear Jerker: * 'She Falls Asleep', 'The Last Song' and 'The Ballad Of Paul K'. 'She Falls Asleep' is about a girl who is Driven to Suicide, 'The Last Song', wanting to live the final moments of your life to the fullest and 'The Ballad Of Paul K' about a man suffering a mid-life crisis. The latter can be especially heartbreaking to those who have ever witnessed their own fathers going through the same thing.
'Down Goes Another One' about a loved one dying young. 'POV', 'Too Close For Comfort' and 'Bubblewrap' makes this Troper cry too.
The Woobie: The protagonist of 'The Ballad Of Paul K'.
Dougie, following reports that he went into rehab to get over his difficult break-up.
