** The titles of the tracks on ''Selected Ambient Works Volume II'' are not so much names as they are photographs. This was done to all tracks ''except'' "Blue Calx" (which follows it's own, discography-wide "Calx" theme with several other songs).

* MaleFrontalNudity: ''Rubber Johnny'' contains a [[FreezeFrameBonus very short]] reversed clip of a condom with the film's name written on it being pulled off an actual penis.

* PerpetualSmiler: If anyone who isn't Richard has Richard's face in a music video, it'll probably be fixed in his signature grin.



* SpellMyNameWithAThe: Some of his earliest music under the Aphex Twin name was instead credited to "''The'' Aphex Twin". This credit can be seen on the ''Digeridoo'' EP and ''Classics'', as well as in the "Come to Daddy" video.



** The spoken French line in "Windowlicker" comes from Richard's French ex-girlfriend.

It includes items such as, "Outdoor postering in Italy", "Hotel in Seattle for album playback meeting" and "Royalty to Richard (50%)." Apparently, Aphex makes £1.0989 per CD sold.

* 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''.
