    • Kevin and Eric likes Got7.
  • Good with Numbers: New is very gifted when it comes to maths.
  • Guyliner: Does happen.
  • ISO-Standard Urban Groceries: Averted when Kevin and Juyeon go shopping. They quickly divert from their grocery list to start buying random things that have a 3 for 2 discount offer.
  • Jack-of-All-Trades: A lot of them, though Hwall stands out.
  • The Leader: Sangyeon
  • Loads and Loads of Characters: There are 12 members.
  • Mood Whiplash: In the first episode of the Flower Snack, they're all happily cooking. Then Sangyeon gathers them all together and starts crying. He tells them that Juyeon has a virus and has to be checked more thoroughly at the hospital.
  • Named After Somebody Famous: Guess who was named after a Home Alone character.
  • The Needs of the Many: Averted. Juyeon is more worried about the other guys still being able to do their reality show than the fact that a check-up revealed he has a virus and needs to be checked further. The other guys disagree and say it would be meaningless without him. It turns out that it was a prank.
  • Our Angels Are Different: Jacob is often seen as an Angel.
  • Perpetual Smiler: The corners of Juyeon's mouth point upwards. He sees it as a strong point.
  • Pinball Zone: The setting of Giddy Up.
  • Power Trio: Hyunjae, Younghoon and Juyeon are the 'Visual Bermuda'. Though it's pointed out on Idol Room that they all look handsome.
  • Punny Names: Their names are not neccessarily punny...until they decided to use puns to introduce thenselves.
    • Hyunjae's name has similar pronunciation as "present" (as in time), and he introduces himself as a gift.
    • Sunwoo introduces himself as the "sun"shine.
    • Kevin introduces himself as having moonlight sensitivity, a pun to his surname Moon.
    • Juyeon's and Sangyeon's names are pronounced similarly to "main cast" and "imagination" respectively.
    • Q is a pun of "cue".

    • Hwall means "arrow", and he introduces himself with his signature "shoot an arrow" action.
  • Real Men Cook: Some are better at it than others.
  • Real Men Wear Pink: Eric likes pink because he thinks pink is a manly color as not everyone can wear it well.

    • Q's neck is flexible too.
  • Running Gag:
    • Kevin's "Can I get a hoya?"
    • Chanhee, Changmin and Younghoon changing Red Velvet's Peek-a-Boo into Kevin Moon.
    Kevin Moon, it's Kevin only when my heart flutters.
    • Fans tease Sangyeon about how bad he is at the mafia game.
  • Super Gullible: Juyeon, which is why he's the victim of the virus prank. Averted with Q, who sees right through it, since he doesn't believe in a virus with symptoms like stuttering. New also didn't believe it, as he didn't think Sangyeon is the type to cry.
  • Tall, Dark, and Handsome: Juyeon, but according to Q he is also kind and innocent, which usually doesn't go with this trope. On top of that, Sunwoo said Juyeon is that guy who dies first in a horror movie.
  • Tarot Motifs: Tarot Cards appear in No Air.
