Stuck In The Sound provides examples of the following tropes:

  • Adam and Eve Plot: Subverted in the "Let's Go" music video. When the Chinese taikonaut finally meets up with the American astronaut "she" lifts up "her" helmet to reveal that she's actually a man.
  • All for Nothing: A possible interpretation of the taikonaut's imagine spot. After the earth blows up, he sits down and imagines the hypothetical scenario of coming home a hero and starting a family, implying he just thought he could do so after fulfilling his dream.
    • Subverted with the taikonaut making it to the space station, while his new dream of an Adam and Eve Plot is dashed, the video ends with him playing videogames with the astronaut. At the very least, he can try to have fun and he does not have to spend the rest of his days alone.
  • Amazing Technicolor Population: The Taikonaut and other Chinese people has purple-pink skin.
  • Animated Music Video:
    • Their songs "Brother" and "Let's Go" both have somewhat trippy animated videos.
    • "Alright" from their new album Billy Believe is an energetic rock song with a video that seems to take every shonen anime, super hero comic and future dystopia cliche in the book and throws them all into a giant blender to make a cocktail of pure animated insanity.
  • Be Careful What You Wish For: The deconstruction of “Follow your dreams” Aesop in “Let’s Go”.
  • Bling-Bling-BANG!: One of the fighters in the "Alright" music video is a man who wields a golden assault rifle.
  • Butt-Monkey: Poor Taikonaut, he went through all that trouble, witnessed an Earth-Shattering Kaboom, and fought to get to the space ship housing a blond (and presumably female) astronaut, just to have his Adam and Eve Plot foiled...
  • But What About the Astronauts?: This is the main premise of their "Let's Go" music video.
  • Earth-Shattering Kaboom: Happens suddenly in "Let's Go" when the taikonaut finally gets to the moon.
  • Gas Mask Mooks: Seen in the music video for "Alright" as part of some sort of totalitarian dictatorship called the Black Army.
  • Genius Bruiser: Downplayed; While the Taikonaut doesn't do much in terms of actual bruising (though he does punch out the blond astronaut hard enough to bust his nose open, the reason being that he wasn't actually a woman, which foiled the Taikonaut's Adam and Eve Plot), he shows some extreme athletic skills and manages to get to the other space station through his own on-the-fly craftiness (e.g. using a gas canister to give himself the initial boost).
  • Heroic Sacrifice: The old man pushes the young boy out of the way of a fatal attack and is beaten to death by the giant gorilla in the "Alright" music video.
  • Oh, Crap!: The taikonaut gets a pretty epic one in the "Let's Go" video when he notices that the earth just exploded right behind him.
  • Samus Is a Girl: This trope gets cruelly inverted in "Let's Go" where the presumably "female" blond astronaut reveals "herself" to actually be a man, meaning that the Adam and Eve Plot that the taikonaut was hoping for isn't gonna happen.
  • Stripperriffic: One of the members of the super hero team that shows up in "Alright" is a topless sniper woman that wears green pasties into battle.
  • Unsettling Gender-Reveal: The blond astronaut, who the Taikonaut presumed to be a female, actually turns out to be a man, which completely foils the Taikonaut's Adam and Eve Plot. To say that the Taikonaut wasn't happy is an understatement.
  • Unstoppable Rage: Seeing his beloved mentor get brutally murdered in the "Alright" video prompts the young boy to flip out and completely curbstomp his foe with one final attack that levels the entire building.
