* Squick: From showering their audience in (fake) human/alien blood, semen, and various other fluids to songs like [[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin "Fuckin' An Animal"]], GWAR runs the gamut of stomach-churning.
** A nice example from "Bloody Mary", the lovely phrase: "Her womb explodes in a meat maggot mesh".



* {{TimeAbyss}}: The main characters are supposed to be millions of years old.

->''"It is I, ODERUS URUNGUS, lead singer of the sickest band in metal history, Earth's only openly extra-terrestrial rock band, and the destined destroyers of not only the human race but also reality itself. GWAR! Hulking, heaving, dribbling WAR-GODS who like nothing better than putting hordes of our sniveling fans to the sword while playing the marauding mutant metal that we are famous for! Star's of stage and screen, carvers of stem and spleen! GWAR LIVES!"''\\

In 2011, Cory Smoot (Flattus Maximus) was found to have died while on the band's tour bus]]. Original reports were that he had died from "a coronary artery thrombosis brought about by his pre-existing coronary artery disease", although a later report showed that "investigators found on Smoot a $5 bill with a white powder residue, a prescription bottle holding eight Oxycodone-Acetaminophen pills, a lighter and two empty syringes".

Added DiffLines:

* BigBadassBattleSequence: "The Song of Words" has GWAR starting one because they're bored. Better yet, it's rapped.


Added DiffLines:

* BloodKnight: The band themselves. "Battle Lust" is an ode to this trope.


Added DiffLines:

* WanderlustSong: "Lust in Space", with an emphasis on the ''[[AnythingThatMoves lust]]'' part.

* LargeHam: While the biggest is always the lead singer (did you read [[IncomingHam the page quote]]?), the get-ups make clear everyone in the band is a ham.



* WorldOfHam

to:

* WorldOfHamWorldOfHam: As summed up by the opening paragraph up there, GWAR is basically a summation of a lot of hammy acts together.

* TheRival / UnknownRival: In their fall 2013 tour with Whitechapel, Oderus brought up that 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.

Added DiffLines:

*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
