* AdmiringTheAbomination: His works are likely to invoke this in artists and fans of psychology, horror, and design. His claim to mastery was not merely his talent for making high octane NightmareFuel, but his ability to create aesthetically fascinating, incredibly cool, or even ''beautiful'', NightmareFuel.

Known for his works' disquieting, [[OrganicTechnology biomechanical]], often [[FreudWasRight sexual]] imagery, Giger achieved much of his fame from his work in films as a set and creature designer. Among the film projects he worked on were ''Film/{{Alien}}'', ''Film/{{Alien 3}}'', ''Film/{{Dune}}'', ''Film/PoltergeistIITheOtherSide'', ''Film/{{Species}}'', and ''Film/{{Prometheus}}'', which actually dusted off some unused concepts from a Pre-David Lynch ''Dune'' film that never [[Creator/AlejandroJodorowsky got off the ground]]. Before this he provided two paintings for Music/EmersonLakeAndPalmer's album ''Brain Salad Surgery'', one of which had to be airbrushed for purposes of censorship. The Music/DeadKennedys included a poster of his painting ''[[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin Penis Landscape]]'' with their album ''Music/{{Frankenchrist}}'' -- for which they got in a little trouble, Music/{{Danzig}} used his art for the cover of ''Danzig III: How the Gods Kill'', and Music/CelticFrost used his painting ''Satan I'' for the cover of their seminal album ''To Mega Therion''.

* AuthorPhobia: He's known to have [[BasedOnADream incorporated his nightmares into his creations]]. Apparently, he often worked through his sleeplessness. Giger also had a phobia of worms and snakes.
