- Several of the "Best Of" Albums are like this. "Because Maybe!" from the Renard track Sinisterrrrrrrr, "I Knew A Little Bookworm" from the Klippa track Bookworm, and "It's Murder" from the Mayhem track of the same name.
- Amen Break: Of course!
- Anti-Love Song: Most of them, after Amber Starlight and its remixes and derivatives.
- Black Sheep Hit: He got an email from his brother that said aliens and monsters were attacking his place...
- Call-and-Response Song: Painkiller, with Renard and... Renard.
- Celebrity Endorsement: Renard is fond of a lot of series; as varied as Adventure Time to Sweet Bro and Hella Jeff
- Chiptune: Kitsune2, a fan favorite, primarily produces chip pieces. A lot of others blur the line between this and techno. One of Klippa's album termed it "Arcadepunk".
- Concept Album: Kitcalibur's album "D.Freq.Crush". From the intro:
in the year 2001, our connections are shut down. team GUNDOGS was sent against the powerful enemy force, RICOCHET AASVOGELS. they were destroyed. OPERATION HELL DIVE was a failure. we are the new resistance. we are only two, but we are armed with skills that training does not amount to. we are armed with vision and audio. DIRECTIVE: FREQUENCY CRUSHER is now active.
Q: I PIRATED YOUR MUSIC!
A: great! piracy rules. piracy and filesharing are great promotional tools, and help spread the word of artists.
- First-Name Basis: Renard is usually just referred to by his first name.
- Genre Roulette: Lapfox releases from quite a swath of genres. Made more impressive because it's all Renard.
- Truxton is hard to define. They switch rapidly between genres even within the same song. The definition above is the closest fit.
- Hardcore Techno:
- Speedcore: The Quick Brown Fox.
- Gabber: Azrael.
- Happy Hardcore: Furries in a Blender.
- Digital Hardcore: Adraen.
- Heartbeat Soundtrack: Portions of Renard's Daeva Suite, among others.
- Lyrical Dissonance: AUGH SO MUCH OF THIS
- Recurring Song: Amber Starlight has received various permutations and remixes.
- Name's the Same: Do not confuse Mayhem with the black metal band of the same name
- Neoclassical Punk Zydeco Rockabilly: Even though the Genre Roulette aspect is taken care of by multiple project aliases, Renard songs typically include such a myriad of source material that it can be generalized as this.
- New Sound Album: A PICTURE OF FINN FARTING is supposed to be what Renard does when he ignores all his inhibitions. One thing's for sure -- it turned out a lot better than he thought it would.
- Nightmare Fuel Station Attendant: Renard's character.
- Non-Appearing Title: The vast majority of tracks.
- Non-Mammal Mammaries: Mayhem. Lampshaded by her album Sharktits.
- Obligatory Bondage Song: Both of them aren't exactly about bondage, but the Queenstons songs What You Do and Painkiller are about erotic disembowelment and incestuous rape, respectively.
- Obsession Song: Probably The Queenstons' Outsider. Doctor Q and Everything You Wanted off of The Revenge of Doctor Q probably also count in some way...
- Old Shame: Description of the Detergent album:
I wouldn't recommend paying for this. or even downloading it for free.
- Open Secret: Renard even acknowledges that all the other artists are him in the latest version of the site. Before this, it was actually somewhat difficult for a new fan to pick up on that without direct spoilers.
- Petting Zoo People: All of the artist-avatars.
- Protest Song: Truxton's work is basically a giant middle finger to every major piece of anti-piracy legislation out there, including SOPA, PIPA and ACTA, primarily because their work consists to a large extent of use of copyrighted music, yet their work is still protected under current American legislation, which Truxton took glee pointing out when releasing Hellhound.
- Refuge in Audacity: Some of the songs are this. So is Renard by the fact that he's completely insane.
- Speedy Techno Remake: Some of the work under Furries In A Blender.
- Split Personality: And how!
- Stupid Statement Dance Mix: Many of the songs he releases for free consist of this.
- Suspiciously Similar Song: Unintentionally, Eggs by Mayhem and 6 Little Eggs by DJ MTG. Mayhem apparently found the vocals in a sample pack and made something out of it.
- And he got one of his own by someone else after calling Captain Ahab gay.
