* AloneWithThePsycho: Several of his songs, examples include: "Same Song and Dance", "3 A.M.", "Stan", "Kim" and [[spoiler: "Bad Guy"]]. Notably, except for "Stan" and [[spoiler: "Bad Guy"]], Eminem is usually the psycho.

* BaitAndSwitch: [[spoiler: "Bad Guy"]], yeah, you'd expect Marshall Mathers LP 2 to feature some throwbacks, so another song about murdering Kim is probably to be expected. [[spoiler: Actually, it's from the perspective of another throwback, Stan's brother, who is now grown up and ready to come to murder Marshall.]]

His next album was set to be a direct {{sequel}} to ''Relapse'', but as he tinkered with it, the whole ''[[WhatCouldHaveBeen Relapse 2]]'' idea was dropped in favor of a completely new album titled ''Recovery'', which promised to be a return to the more sincere and somber tone of ''The Marshall Mathers LP'' and focus less on Slim Shady's antics. The first single from the album, "Not Afraid", was released on April 29th, 2010, and the album was released on June 22nd of the same year. While some listeners felt that it was just more of the same, reception was for the most part positive, with many hailing it as a improvement over both ''Encore'' and ''Relapse''. And like all of his albums, it was greeted with very strong sales. Criticism arose from what some saw as poor, commercial production and delivery.

In late October 2017, after two freestyles ("Campaign Speech" and "The Storm"), an ad campaign for a falsified drug called "Revival" began being spread by affiliates of Interscope Records. Considering its references to many of Em's songs, its claim to treat the non-existing condition "atrox rithimus" ([[AltumVidetur Latin for "terrible rhyme"]]), and the fact that its logo contained Em's trademark reversed E, many speculated this to be the name of his upcoming album. On November 8, the single "Walk on Water" was released, and a circulating release date of November 17 proved to be false once the day passed. However, on November 18, Dr. Dre posted a video on Instagram that officially announced that not only was the "Revival" drug fake, but [[IKnewIt it was indeed the name of Em's new album]], due December 15.

Marshall's second mainstream album was called ''Music/TheMarshallMathersLP'', and showed the world a more vulnerable and depressed artist trying to deal with his new found super stardom. The album pretty much took everything "offensive" about ''The Slim Shady LP'' and turned it UpToEleven, with Eminem revealing more disturbing details of his childhood, spinning darker fantasies of domestic violence, and responding more virulently to his critics. Considered his magnum opus, the record was another massive hit (it is currently both the fastest-selling and highest-selling rap album of all time) and somehow [[SequelEscalation managed to attract even more controversy than its predecessor]].

In the Summer of 2009, ''Relapse'' was released, sending Eminem back into [[EnemyWithin Slim Shady]] territory, detailing his descent into drug addiction during his hiatus. While the album received generally mixed reviews and was seen as an improvement over ''Encore'', some felt that the constant overuse of [[WhatTheHellIsThatAccent his Triumph-The-Insult-Comic-Dog-Voice from "Ass Like That"]], tired celebrity-bashing and outright morbid weirdness of some of the tracks were a little much (interesting, Eminem seems to agree with the detractors, calling the album "Ehh" during "Not Afraid"). However, it was yet another financial smash, securing Eminem as the best-selling rapper of all time. A special edition of the album, titled ''Relapse: Refill'', was released in December of the same year and included seven new songs. Praise for this album has increased in retrospect, with many believing it to be a horrorcore masterpiece, praising the production, rhyming, storytelling, and unbridled creativity. It has achieved a near cult-classic status amongst his fanbase.

A sequel to ''The Marshall Mathers LP'', simply titled ''[[NumberedSequels The Marshall Mathers LP 2]]'', was released on November 5, 2013. The album showcased Eminem at his most mature yet (for the most part, anyway), with a greater focus on raw rapping and introspective stories than crude humor and celebrity references, and even served as something of an apology to everyone he's offended, especially his mother. It also lived up to its title, with callbacks and references to the first ''MMLP'', most notably on "Bad Guy" and "So Far...". It was one of the biggest selling albums of the year, and is generally considered to be his best album since ''The Eminem Show''.

** Grimly averted in "Walk on Water", a song all about Em's insecurities, in which he outright states that he's only human and does not deserve to be treated or hailed as more than that.
