Also GWAR themselves. As they slumbered in their Antarctica fortress, they manipulated the dreams of humanity and convinced mankind to go to war with one another.

* FamilyUnfriendlyAesop: played straight in "Parting Shot", where Oderous says "Never trust your parents, especially when they're older", but then subverts this trope with the next line: "always use a beer koozie, it keeps it that much colder". Not

* EvenEvilHasStandards: While GWAR would cross lines most people felt shouldn't be crossed (such as portraying Seung-Hui Cho "going for the record" six months after the Virginia Tech massacre or having Oderus molesting [=JonBenet=] Ramsey), Dave Brockie was against using racist language as part of GWAR's act.

Additionally, while Edna P. Granbo of the Morality Squad was all for chopping off somebody's genitals to prove a point, she was STRONGLY against GWAR's antics.

What happens when you take the theatrical stage performances of Music/AliceCooper, the costumes and makeup of Music/{{KISS}}, AudienceParticipation of ''Film/TheRockyHorrorPictureShow'', and throw it in a [[UpToEleven meat grinder]]? You get the [[EvilOverlord self-proclaimed overlords]] of all existence known as GWAR.

* TheRival / UnknownRival: In their fall 2013 tour with Whitechapel, Oderus brought up that Music/RobZombie got GWAR thrown off the 2013 Mayhem Festival line up. This resulted in Oderus taking shots at Rob Zombie throughout the concert and yelling "FUCK ROB ZOMBIE!" Whether this is true or the band trying to stir up some drama is unknown though.



* SelfDeprecation: When not taking pot shots at Earthlings, celebrities, American culture, etc, they take shots at themselves for being less-that-stellar musicians (at least in the early days), making fun of their cheesy props, etc. Not to mention they portray their characters as rather dim and bufoonish.
** Meta, Dave Brockie maintained a blog on his website called "Stupid Shit That I've Done." It's ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin. Even by GWAR standards, it's some impressive stupidity (usually involving drinking way too much). Highlights include trying to smoke a piece of hash and finding out it was a chunk of food and accidentally running over his own iPhone.



* TakeThat: They bring effigies of celebrities, politicians, and other noteworthy people on stage for ritualistic public execution. A short list of victims includes Music/MichaelJackson, Music/JustinBieber, [[LiveActionTV/JerseyShore Snooki]], El Duce from the Music/{{Mentors}}, JonBenet Ramsey, and every President of the United States (and during election years, those running for President) since Reagan.
