* ProgressiveMetal: Their music borders on this at times, especially on ''Seventh Son of a Seventh Son'', ''A Matter of Life and Death'', and ''The Book of Souls'', as well as epics from other albums like "Powerslave", "Rime of the Ancient Mariner", "To Tame a Land", and "Hallowed Be Thy Name". Depending upon your definition of the style they will probably either qualify as one of the first genuine examples of the genre or as an UrExample instead. It's probably worth noting that Music/DreamTheater covered the album ''Music/TheNumberOfTheBeast'' in its entirety, to give an example of Maiden's prog credentials.

* AbortedArc: ''The Book of Souls'' starts with a song Bruce had written for a solo ConceptAlbum, "If Eternity Should Fail". Thus the [[SpokenWordInMusic spoken outro]] introducing two characters is setup for a plot that doesn't continue - Bruce even asked Steve if he should cut it, but the bandleader felt it fit the album's themes and mood.

* DarkIsNotEvil: Their music is undeniably dark, but the band members themselves are pretty decent people for the most part, and they always portray the terrible topics in their songs as genuinely terrible, so there's never any sense that EvilIsCool.

* {{Revival}}: Three tours in TheTurnOfTheMillennium, "The Early Days" (only songs from the first four albums, and a EarthShatteringPoster taken directly from the ''Piece of Mind'' tour), "Somewhere Back in Time" (besides "Fear of the Dark", only '80s songs, plus an Egyptian ''Powerslave''-like stage which also had references to the two albums that followed), and "Maiden England" (stage and set-list inspired by the eponymous live album, recorded during the ''Seventh Son'' tour)

* OldMediaAreEvil: ''When the Wild Wind Blows'' is a loose deconstruction of a 1982 comic of the same name. An elderly couple obsessed with the end of the world based on what they see on TV, and commit suicide during what they think is Doomsday, but is actually just an ordinary earthquake.

** ''The Book of Souls'' has "The Red and the Black" (13:33), "The Book of Souls" (10:27), and "Empire of the Clouds" ('''18:01'''). In fact, no songs are below 5 minutes.[[note:Though "Tears of a Clown" misses that by one second.]]

** Likewise, a previous 2-D to 3-D jump, ''[[http://www.metal-archives.com/images/3/8/6/386.jpg The X-Factor]]'' (though not hand-drawn to CGI, but hand-drawn to statue) was not well received.

** The band was known for their very distinctive album artwork courtesy of Derek Riggs throughout most of their career, and he provided at least some artwork for most of their album covers until his involvement eventually waned entirely after the release of ''Brave New World'' (reportedly due to them being difficult to work with). After having these painted scenes for nine (studio) albums, fans were slightly surprised when the album cover for ''Dance of Death'' was revealed to be [[http://www.metal-archives.com/images/2/1/6/3/21633.jpg an episode of]] ''ReBoot'' [[http://www.metal-archives.com/images/2/1/6/3/21633.jpg gone horribly wrong]]. (Even artist David Patchet hated the cover. The image was only supposed to be a mock-up, not the finished product)

* {{Mascot}} / MetalBandMascot: Eddie the Head, the albino zombie originally designed by Derek Riggs. Eddie appears on all album covers, and on most (if not all) of the band's merchandise.

* TheMerch: They're known for their pretty damn awesome merchandise, which ranges from simple shirts and posters, to pens and binders, to tankards and various pieces of metalwork, to ''their own beer''. There are even some Eddie the Head action figures!
