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]]''.

* GeorgeLucasAlteredVersion: Following the creation of his personal Bleep store, many of Richard's rereleased albums had tracks from their respective development periods (many of which originating from his Soundcloud dump) put in as bonus tracks. ''...I Care Because You Do'', in particular, has almost '''45 minutes''' of new content added to it.

** 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.

Added DiffLines:

* StepUpToTheMicrophone: Richard has sung on a small number of his songs, such as "Milkman" and "Beetles".
* SurprisinglyGentleSong:
** ''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.


Added DiffLines:

* WhipItGood: The sound of a whip crack is sampled extensively throughout "Omgyjya-Switch 7".

* CarefulWithThatAxe: One of the most famous parts of "Come To Daddy, Pappy Mix" is a horrific, anguished 34-second scream near the end of the song [[NightmareFuel that is presumably from Richard himself]].

* KubrickStare: Richard sure likes to show off his creepy smile. The [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5L_ZEXhDQzo promotional video for ''26 Mixes for Cash'']] compiles some his unsettling promotional photos.

Added DiffLines:

* SomethingElseAlsoRises: The "Windowlicker" video's, er, [[AccidentalPun climax]] involves Richard spraying a bottle of champagne on a beach, and the way that it's intercut with the dancing bikini-clad women makes the bottle seem rather phallic.

* EveryoneHasStandards: Although RDJ as known for being a Jerkass (see below), he was upset that Music/KanyeWest tried to sample "Avril 14" on ''Music/MyBeautifulDarkTwistedFantasy'' without his permission or help.
