* NoTrueScotsman: Manowar has a very [[RatedMForManly manly]] definition of Heavy Metal, but not all Heavy Metal groups fit into it. Those are rejected as "False metal".

* DevilsJobOffer: The song "Dark Avenger" is the story of a man who was horribly wronged by local village elders, and eventually killed. When he enters Hades, the "Guardian of Lost Souls", (voiced by Creator/OrsonWelles) offers him a job. The man is equipped with a magic blade which was forged in brimstone and tempered in the tears of the unavenged dead, as well as a pitch-black horse with flaming eyes to carry him back to Earth. The Guardian tells him to "seek payment, not only for thine own anguish, but vindicate the souls of the Unavenged". The song then is told from the Dark Avenger's perspective, which he mostly spends listing the fates of his targets.



* LikeABadassOutOfHell: "Dark Avenger".

* NorseMythology: Many of Manowar's songs are about this subject. To their credit, they do tend to research the aforementioned in great detail. Odin would be proud.
** Case in point, they directly quote the Havamal in ''Odin''.
-->''Speared'',
-->''Hung upside down'',
-->''Nine days and nights'',
-->''No food or mead'',
-->''The will to be'',
-->''A sacrifice'',
-->''Of myself unto myself''



* RockOpera: ''Gods of War'' is an album heavily influenced by the works of Richard Wagner. The album is a Norse Mythology-influenced tale that tells the story of Odin and his four sons.

** Eric Adams is an actual hunter, too.

to:

** Eric Adams is [[ManlyMenCanHunt an actual hunter, too. hunter]], too -- and he doesn't hunt with a gun; he hunts ''with a bow and arrows''. Not only that, he actually teaches ''other'' people how to hunt! Manowar literally makes other people manlier.
