* TheQuietOne: Sean Moore, though not as bad as most examples. Ironically, out of the band he's the most active on social media, particularly Twitter.

* DeadpanSnarker: Each member of the band, with Nicky being the snarkiest and Sean being the most deadpan. For example, when the band were collectively asked what they had learned from making a solo album in an interview, Sean Moore dryly quipped "Not to do one".



* FourTemperamentEnsemble: James Dean Bradfield is choleric, Nicky Wire is sanguine, Richey Edwards is melancholic, and Sean Moore is phlegmatic.

* {{Krautrock}}: A big influence on ''Futurology''.



* MohsScaleOfRockAndMetalHardness: Their first 3 albums sat comfortably in the 3-5 range. Since then they've released things from between 1-5 on the scale, but never harder than that. ''Everything Must Go'' and ''This Is My Truth Tell Me Yours'' sit at a 3 on the scale. The limited-edition single ''The Masses Against the Classes'' is a definite 5. Their "softest" album to date, ''Lifeblood'', probably sits at a 2. Their latest album ''Futurology'' is a 3 or a 4.

** Anyone listening to ''The Holy Bible'' or ''Journal For Plague Lovers'' for the first time after enjoying any of their other albums is generally in for quite a shock.

* [[TitleDrop Band Name Drop]]: Possibly done in "Archives Of Pain" at the end of the second chorus, shouted alongside a list of notorious serial killers. The last name is meant to be Milosovic, but sounds more like 'Manic Street Preachers'.

** "Bag Lady" and "Patrick Bateman" (hidden track on "Journal For Plague Lovers" and B-side to the "La Tristesse Durera" single respectively) can arguably reside at a 6 on the scale at their heaviest parts.

** The limited edition box set reissue of Generation Terrorists which notably included an extra disc of previously unreleased demos. It was in such high demand that it sold out, and people were paying large amounts of money for it on ebay. The band have thought about getting another pressing done.

* {{Sampling}}: Used extensively, and everyone from PublicEnemy to J.G. Ballard.
* SeriousBusiness / SelfHarm: when music journalist/BBC Radio 1 host Steve Lamacq questioned their authenticity, Richey famously carved "4 REAL" into his own forearm with a razor blade. Richey had a history of self-harm both before and after the incident.
* ShoutOut: Numerous examples, such as Music/PinkFloyd or Music/TheWho in "Your Love Alone Is Not Enough" and Music/MarilynManson in "There by the Grace of God".

There's also another to The Clash in "Roses in the Hospital".
* SillyRabbitRomanceIsForKids: "Life Becoming a Landslide" features the pre-chorus "My idea of love comes from a childhood glimpse of pornogrpahy/though there is no true love, just a finely-tuned jealousy". This also seems to have been the view that Richey, who wrote the lyric, held.
