* NothingIsScarier: The original 30-second commercial form of ''Rubber Johnny'' has a lot of this due to the lack of explanation for the visuals. The regular short film version also has some, mainly with the relatively uneventful beginning and ending. The ending is especially creepier due to the use of the '"Drukqs'' track "[=Gwarek2=]" over the credits.

** His more atmospheric tracks, like "Gwely Mernans" and "Grass", are made up of soft, [[DroneOfDread droning]] noises that wouldn't be out of place in ''VideoGame/SilentHill''.

** "[Equation]" notably ends with a strange noise; when run through a logarithmic spectrogram, it reveals that the sound is [[http://img366.imageshack.us/img366/6540/aphexly2.png a spectrograph of Richard's face appears in the spectrograph at the end of [Equation].]] face]].


Added DiffLines:

* TheFaceless: Defied. Richard has stated that due to faceless anonymity being a norm of techno at the time, he responded by putting his face in ''[[SigilSpam every conceivable place]]''.

** At age 11, Richard tinkered around with a Sinclair [=ZX81=] computer and wound up writing a program that caused it to produce sound, ''even though they lack sound hardware.'' He even won 50 pounds for it.

** ''Richard D. James Album'' has "Fingerbib", "Goon Gumpas", and "Logan Rock Witch".
** On the ''Come to Daddy'' EP, "Flim", especially considering it directly follows the TitleTrack.
** A majority of ''Drukqs'', considering the album switches between aggressive breakcore and calm piano instrumentals at the drop of a hat.
