* HonorBeforeReason: When Bruce found out his then-wife had slept with a member of MotleyCrue, he challenged MotleyCrue guitarist Mick Mars to a ''fencing duel''. Mars was confused, as he had not, in fact, been the one who slept with Bruce Dickinson's wife. That was bassist Nikki Sixx.

* DarkerAndEdgier: His solo albums are this compared to his albums with Iron Maiden. He sings them in a more gravely and less operatic style, the lyrical themes are grimmer ("Man Of Sorrows," for example, is about the tragic life of Creator/AleisterCrowley), and the guitar sound is more razor-sharp.

* MohsScaleOfRockAndMetalHardness: His solo music is a bit more scattered in terms of hardness than his music with Iron Maiden. His harder songs are usually a 7, with songs like "Freak" bordering on 8. However, he also has quite a few softer and more ballad-like songs, which usually range from 2 to 4.
