** The first line of the song makes it clear that at least some of the "them all" are kids, most likely very young soldiers.

[[folder:Band tropes]]
* BadassBeard: Jukka, Tuomas, Marco, and Troy. Marco even has TWO beards that he BRAIDS!
* ChuckCunninghamSyndrome: Only die-hard fans remember Sami Vänskä. The only reason he's not a [[ThePeteBest Pete Best]] to the band is because he played on ''Oceanborn'', Nightwish's breakout album, and its successor, ''Wishmaster''. However, Marco still overshadows him.
* CloudCuckoolander: Emppu could count as one of these, though he doesn't talk all that much and isn't prone to non-sequitur, he is known as the tiny smart aleck of the band amongst the fanbase. The band has played with this fact a couple of times too, Turunen dumping a drink over his head after being referred to as a 'notorius lush' by Vuorinen on the ''End of Innocence'' DVD.
* DyeHard:[[invoked]] Apparently, Tuomas is a natural blond.
** KaleidoscopeHair:[[invoked]] Anette frequently dyed her hair different colours, occasionally at the same time.
* FiveManBand:
** TheLeader: Tuomas.
** TheLancer: Marco.
** TheBigGuy: Jukka.
** TheHeart: Emppu.
** TheChick: Floor.
** TheSixthRanger: Troy.
* FunSize: Every guy in the band except for Tuomas and Floor is under six feet tall; Emppu is the most prominent example at 5'0". Tuomas is just barely the tallest member of the band (he is 6'1 1/2", while Floor is 6'0 1/2".)
* TheInsomniac: Jukka suffered from insomnia for years, forcing him to go on hiatus from the band in 2014.
* LargeHam: Why, Marco of course. By default, any time he has a part in a song, whatever subtlety had been built up until that point is thoroughly smashed, due to his tendency to -- in the mold of [[Music/BlindGuardian Hansi Kürsch]] before him -- [[NoIndoorVoice sing completely in all caps.]]
** Averted in "The Islander" off of ''Dark Passion Play'', however, where he takes on a softer tone.
* LeadBassist: Marco is the best known member of the band aside from Tuomas.
* NamesTheSame:[[invoked]] ''Imaginarium'' and "various other things." So they [[http://tinyurl.com/osfenyd changed the name]] to ''Imaginaerum''.
* OlderThanTheyLook: Anette Olzon looks and sounds like she's only about 25, but is actually 40, six years Tarja's senior. Anette was the second-eldest member of the band after Marco until her departure.
* OneOfUs:[[invoked]] Marco is a [[ScienceFiction sci-fi]] geek and loves video games. He has openly admitted this in his tiny bio on the band's official website, he's a lifelong Creator/{{Nintendo}} fan, his favorite video game is VideoGame/PlanescapeTorment, and he occasionally wears Franchise/StarWars shirts in concert.
* RealMenWearPink: Tuomas isn't RatedMForManly, but you still wouldn't expect that obsession with Creator/{{Disney}} films. He even released an entire concept album based on ''ComicBook/TheLifeAndTimesOfScroogeMcDuck''.
* SomethingSomethingLeonardBernstein: Played straight with Tarja and her heavy Finnish accent on the earlier albums, mostly averted with Anette even when she sings the earlier songs.
* WhamEpisode: "An Open Letter to Tarja," where lead singer Tarja Turunen was fired from Nightwish, was a defining moment in the band's history, [[BrokenBase for better or for worse]].

* WhamEpisode: While not necessarily compatible with music, "An Open Letter to Tarja" certainly qualifies as this.
