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.
  • Uncle Tom Foolery: Many people looked at them in this light in the beginning of their career because of their repetitive and simple lyrics people consider mumble rap.

Tropes applying to Quavo:

  • Face of the Band:He is the most recognizable member of the trio since he makes more mainstream media appearances than the rest of the trio.
  • Fun Personified: Even though he is listed as a Gangster rapper he often gives a light hearted fun style to the gangster lyrics.
  • Heterosexual Life-Partners: With Travis Scott as explained on their song, “Eye 2 Eye”.
  • Large Ham:He often gives very energetic and loud vocals on every song he is featured in and he often stretches out the duration of short words in ad-libs.
  • Lighter and Softer: His lyrics are much lighter and less violent in tone than Offset and Takeoff.
  • Mr Fan Service:He often referred to by female fans as being very attractive.
  • The Alleged Boss: Quavo often carries himself as the boss of the trio since he often speaks on behalf of the trio in most interviews even though it appears their all equal.
  • No Indoor Voice:He is easily the loudest member of the group and he is often the loudest one in every song.
  • Wolverine Publicity:He appears in more advertisements and in more song features than any other member of the group and he is the only member of the group that is on all of the group discography.

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:

  • 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.
