* StepUpToTheMicrophone: Adrian Smith sings lead vocals on "Reach Out", the B-side to "Wasted Years". On a PlayedForALaughs sense, there's [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mMOZIPvcQUY Nicko "singing" "Age of Innocence"]]. And immediately before Maiden's second ever gig, Paul Di'Anno was arrested outside the club they were due to perform in for carrying a concealed switchblade, forcing Steve to sing on the basis that he was the only one who knew all of the lyrics.

** "Hallowed Be Thy Name" from ''The Number of The Beast'' ends with the last rites imparted upon the subject of the song after he says his last words, leading to his final execution at the gallows.

** "Starblind," from ''The Final Frontier''


Added DiffLines:

** "Starblind" from ''The Final Frontier'' deals with the quandary of how small the reality that religion sold to the masses is, and how comparatively huge the universe actually is.

* UnreliableNarrator: Although few if any expressly confirmed cases exist, the limited perspective of many of their songs, and some of the subject matter they cover, suggest that at least a few of them are subject to this.

** ''A Matter of Life and Death'' ends with "The Legacy", about the death of a corrupt leader marking a KarmaHoudini for him, plunging the state of his country into futher chaos. It helps that it [[TraumaCongaLine follows three either really disturbing or really depressing tracks in a row]].

** "Empire of the Clouds", based on the maiden voyage of the [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/R101 R101]]. It also closes ''The Book of Souls''. Marking three straight albums with downer endings in a row.
*** And to take it a step further, before "Empire of the Clouds" is the aforementioned "Tears of a Clown" and "The Man of Sorrows", about how people think religion will solve the world's problems, but only instead make it worse.
*** Since ''The Book of Souls'' is a DoubleAlbum, disc 1 ends with the title track, based on the film ''{{Film/Apocalypto}}'', about the decline of the Mayan civilizations by the Aztecs and the further end of the Aztecs by the Spanish Inquisition.

** TheChick \ TheHeart: Dave. who's the only guy aside from Steve in every album, so no doubt he's the one that connects the band, and his guitar has the signature Maiden sound. It's even truer regarding the other guitarists: Janick said that despite never playing with another guitarist before, with Dave "we just got together and it seemed to gel"; and Adrian added that "If I write a song Iíll usually play the solo in it and then Davey or Jan will do the other solo - usually Davey - and then again if Jan writes a song Davey will play the solo - so Davey gets to play everything "

* TechnicianVsPerformer: Adrian writes the most technical solos and has the most complicated backline. Janick, by contrast, leaves patch changes to his tech, swings his guitar around by the strap like a loon, and gets into mock fights with Eddie on stage. Dave, for his part, is between the two.
