Tropes applying to the group as a whole:

  • Auto-Tune: Mostly used by Quavo, sometimes used by Offset, rarely used by Takeoff.
  • Awesome Mc Coolname: The member’s of the group are named Quavo, Offset, and Takeoff, after all...
  • Badass Family: The 3 of them are all related to each other.
  • Broken Record: Mostly on their older songs.
  • Boastful Rap: Literally 98% of their songs. Exceptions are EXTREMELY rare.
  • Drugs Are Good: Averted. Despite talking about cooking, selling and doing drugs, unlike their contemporaries, they remain neutral, not talking about negative or positive side of effects of doing these things.
  • Freudian Trio:
  • Gangsta Rap: Type 2.
    • Without Warning leans more into type 3 territory.
  • Lyrical Tic: Like most trap rappers, they utilize ad-libs frequently. Unlike other trap rappers, though, they don’t usually reuse the same ad-libs, with a few exceptions.

  • Power Trio
  • Technician vs. Performer: Quavo is the performer, Takeoff is the technician, and Offset is both.
  • Trap Music: While DEFINITELY NOT the Ur-Example, they are the Trope Codifier.
  • Trope Codifier: Helped cement trap’s place in the mainstream.

Tropes applying to Quavo:

Tropes applying to Offset:

  • Darker and Edgier: He has the darkest output of the group, most notably Without Warning, which is helped by the fact that it also features 21 Savage and dark production from Metro Boomin.
    • Also, it was released on Halloween 2017.
    • Father of 4 deals with more personal and serious themes than Migos’ usual output.
  • The Lancer: The most down to earth member of the group.

Tropes applying to Takeoff:

  • Absentee Actor: Infamously on their most popular song, “Bad and Boujee”, where he’s replaced by Lil Uzi Vert.
    • According to him, though, he wasn’t left off of “Bad and Boujee”.
  • Cloud Cuckoolander
  • Tagalong Kid: Is the youngest member of the group, as he’s 3 years younger than Quavo and Offset.
    • Even more so when the group started, as he was only 17.
