  • Before making a single edit, Tropedia EXPECTS our site policy and manual of style to be followed. Failure to do so may result in deletion of contributions and blocks of users who refuse to learn to do so. Our policies can be reviewed here.
  • All images MUST now have proper attribution, those who neglect to assign at least the "fair use" licensing to an image may have it deleted. All new pages should use the preloadable templates feature on the edit page to add the appropriate basic page markup. Pages that don't do this will be subject to deletion, with or without explanation.
  • All new trope pages will be made with the "Trope Workshop" found on the "Troper Tools" menu and worked on until they have at least three examples. The Trope workshop specific templates can then be removed and it will be regarded as a regular trope page after being moved to the Main namespace. THIS SHOULD BE WORKING NOW, REPORT ANY ISSUES TO Janna2000, SelfCloak or RRabbit42. DON'T MAKE PAGES MANUALLY UNLESS A TEMPLATE IS BROKEN, AND REPORT IT THAT IS THE CASE. PAGES WILL BE DELETED OTHERWISE IF THEY ARE MISSING BASIC MARKUP.

Demi Lovato provides examples of the following tropes:
  • Abusive Parents: Their birth dad was an alcoholic abuser who ditched her, then reconnected with them again when they got famous, and used their fame to make them look bad.
    • For the Love of a Daughter basically explains the situation.
    • Their mother is accused of ignoring their clear issues with cutting and eating disorders once they got to Hollywood.
      • Word of Demi, to be fair to their parents, was that Demi hid their problems well, and did not discuss them with their parents.
    • Jeez, no wonder they had a breakdown...
  • All Girls Want Bad Boys: "Trainwreck".
  • And Now for Something Completely Different / New Sound Album: Unbroken has a more electro and R&B/Hip-Hop sound to it compared to their two previous albums, which were more rock oriented.
  • Album Title Drop: The Don't Forget, and Here We Go Again songs.
  • Blonde, Brunette, Redhead: Demi has donned all three hair colors, one of them being blonde.
  • Break Up Song: Every Time You Lie, Don't Forget, Gonna Get Caught, Everything You're Not, Mistake, In Real Life
  • Career Resurrection: Skyscraper was one of the ballads of 2011, and Unbroken is very successful in America and southern America.
  • The Cast Showoff: In both Camp Rock and Sonny With a Chance.
  • Celeb Crush: They've said theirs is William Beckett from The Academy Is...
  • Fallen Princess
  • Heterosexual Life Partners: With Selena Gomez, and to a lesser extent, Miley Cyrus.
    • Which produced a friendship-level Betty and Veronica dynamic. Selena is more of a Betty and Miley is more of Veronica.
  • I Meant to Do That - One time when they were performing "Until You're Mine", they tripped and started laughing. During one of the instumental breaks, they said "I planned that, the whole falling thing? That was already planned!"
  • Odd Friendship: They're actually really good friends with Kim Kardashian.
  • One of Us: Or as much as a Disney star can be; they're a self-confessed metalhead, dropping names like Job for a Cowboy, Abigail Williams and Maylene and the Sons of Disaster. They apparently once tried to show it to Joe Jonas, who didn't like it at all. Their song La La Land basically cements this.
  • Promoted Fan: Worked with John Mayer, William Beckett JR of The Acadamy Is, and Jon McLaughlin for Here We Go Again. Later worked with Britney Spears for X Factor.
  • Raven Hair, Ivory Skin: Before they got a tan and dyed their hair.
  • Real Life Writes the Plot: Because of personal issues, they didn't return to Sonny With a Chance, causing the series to do a Retool into So Random.
  • Rockstar Song: "La La Land".
  • "The Reason You Suck" Speech: Every Time You Lie, Mistake, Everything You're Not.
  • Self-Backing Vocalist: Not always, but it does happen (e.g. 'Catch Me'). Otherwise, they've had people like the Jonas Brothers and Kara DioGuardi as their backing singers in the studio.
  • Silly Love Songs: Catch Me, Trainwreck, Hold Up, In Real Life, Unbroken, Lightweight, Stop the World and My Love Is Like Star.
  • Stalker with a Crush / Obsession Song: Until You're Mine treads the fine line between both of these concepts.
  • Slap Slap Kiss: Get Back, Here We Go Again.
  • Spiritual Successor: To Ashlee Simpson, starts doing rock, then experiments with Jazz and then goes to a RNB/Electronic route. Has a famous working sister in the business (This time Younger) and complex father issues. Also wrote a take that towards the general Hollywood and perfection machine.
  • Take That: La La land is aimed at Hollywood AND Disney for their need to artificially perfect their teen idols.
    • For The Love of A Daughter to their father.
    • Every Time You Lie to the guy who did those things to them.
  • Title Track: Their three albums all have one.
  • Tomboy and Girly Girl: Before they came out as non-binary, Demi called themself a girly girl in an interview, while Selena called herself a tomboy in that same interview.
  • Your Cheating Heart: Gonna Get Caught, Every Time You Lie, Solo, U Got Nothing On Me, World Of Chances
