* MeanCharacterNiceActor: Despite his obsession with writing from the perspective of sadistic and violent characters, Till's mother has spoken of what a devoted and kind family man he remains despite his fame, and that he is completely different to his onstage personality. The song "Haifisch" attempts to deal with this trope, noting that the band is sensitive about the criticism they receive, despite putting on a tough public image

--> '''Paul Landers''': Then there were five of us. Only Flake the keyboarder was missing. We really had to talk him into it. He didn't want to play in the band. He said it was too silly. He said it was too blunt, boring and strict. On the one hand we knew we need a keyboarder, on the other, a person who'd speak up with their objections. Rammstein is like goulash and needs a pinch of sugar for taste. We were always saying, "Man, Flake, come on and join the band," "Are their six or five of us?" He never really answered and he still hasn't even today.

* LargeHam: One of his signature mannerisms is to partially squat and pound his fist onto his thigh to the beat of the riff. This didn't start as a mannerism, but when he realized it looked cool he kept doing it. The reason he originally did it? His [[EnforcedMethodActing kneecap popped out of place]] [[{{Badass}} and he had to pound it back in.]]

* DepravedBisexual: Plays one in quite a few songs, and going by his own solo work (namely, the song "Ladyboy"), he has a thing for pre or non-op male-to-female transgender people and/or transvestites.

* VillainousFriendship: Although they don't do too much in public, MarilynManson and him are close, to the point where he, as Manson put it, dragged Manson into the studio to get him to do the lyrics for "Hypothetical", off of Emigrate's second album. Manson was reluctant because he thought Richard's singing was better. Also, when Manson and Rammstein (minus Till) performed at a German awards show together, Manson kneeled down to present them with the awards they won afterwards.

* DoNotCallMePaul / OnlyKnownByTheirNickname: He doesn't like his given name and maintains "Flake" ''is'' his proper name.
** The massive irony here is that another, although outdated, term for your "given name" is your "Christian name".

* {{Fanservice / FanDisservice}}: The live performance of "Bück Dich" involves him in bondage gear on all fours, sometimes leashed.
* GeekPhysiques: Is the only member of the band who isn't muscular and rugged-looking, even though he enjoys hiking and sometimes spends ''whole shows'' pacing on a treadmill.
** Doubly obvious in "Keine Lust" since he's the only band member who didn't get a fatsuit.
