* EarlyInstallmentWeirdness: ''Opium'' is straight forward {{Industrial}}, their next two albums turned into proto-EBM, and their next few were a mixture of IndustrialMetal and more dance-influenced fare. ''Angst'' was the first album to consist mainly of Metal songs.

* BreakupSong: KMFDM of all people have several: "Every Day's a Good Day," "Adios," "Strut," and possibly "En Esch."

* BreakupSong: KMFDM ''KMFDM'' of all people have several: "Every Day's a Good Day," "Adios," "Strut," and possibly "En Esch."



* FullCircleRevolution: "Anarchy" is about one
* GreatestHitsAlbum: ''Greatest Shit''/''Würst'' is a collection of remixed versions of some of KMFDM's best known tracks.
* HiddenTrack: "Fairy" on ''Xtort'' and "Nihil" on, well, ''Nihil''
* IAmTheBand: Sascha and En Esch are this, as well as the [[FaceOfTheBand Faces of the Band]], as noted above.
* IdiosyncraticEpisodeNaming: Starting with ''UAIOE'' and breaking the chain with ''Hau Ruck'' (originally named FUBAR, which would have kept the five-letter album title tradition going). ''Tohuvabohu'' came close to resuming the tradition with five syllables in the title. Their album ''Blitz'' returned to the tradition, but ''Our Time Has Come'' appears to have departed from it once again.
* InitialismTitle: Their name is an initialism of Kein Mehrheit Für Die Mitleid, the nonsensical German phrase meaning 'no majority for the pity' - though it's often translated roughly as 'no mercy for the masses' (which would be Kein ''Mitleid'' Für Die ''Mehrheit''). [[http://web.archive.org/web/20071009101108/http://www.sonicenvelope.com/thread2.html And then there's all the fan-suggested names...]]
* {{Industrial}}: One of the key bands in the genre. Their first album ''Opium'' qualifies as Old-School Industrial. ''Don't Blow Your Top'' and ''What Do You Know, Deutschland?'' sound like [[UrExample prototypical]] EBM, but the genre already existed by then. Good portions of ''UAIOE'', ''Money'', and ''Naive'' sound like this too. Their post-''Tohuvabohu'' albums have distinct Electro-Industrial influences.
* IndustrialMetal: Most of their 90s and 2000s work is this, though some of it Electro-Industrial. Their newest albums are pretty evenly split between the two genres.
* IntercourseWithYou: "UAIOE", "Loving Can Be an Art", "Liebesleid", "Hole in the Wall", "Conillion"
* InTheStyleOf: All of their covers are done in their traditional style except for "Mysterious Ways" which is done like a straight forward cover
* IronicNurseryTune: "The Death And Burial of C.R." from ''WTF?!'' is the nursery rhyme "Who Killed Cock Robin?" set to [[OminousMusicBoxTune really fucking creepy music]].
* {{Irony}}: Despite their hatred of MTV, they appeared no 120 minutes in 1992. on top of that the "A Drug Against War" appeared on ''WesternAnimation/BeavisAndButthead''.
** "Intro" is the last track on ''WWIII''
* KangarooCourt: "Rebels In Kontrol" mentions this in a later part of the song resembling a news broadcast, which says that "the world's political leaders have been detained and will be tried by kangaroo courts for their committed crimes against humanity". The segment ends with Lucia screaming 'Make the rules up as we go!'
* KillItWithFire: "Ultra"
* LaResistance: "Anarchy", "Jihad", "New American Century", "Not in My Name", "Rebels in Kontrol"
* ListSong: "Inane". Also a SongOfSongTitles as it includes the name of every album and single they had released at the time.
