* AuthorTract: The lyrics are pretty explicit about identifying what the band sees as political problems, but this will fall into SomeAnvilsNeedToDropped for listeners who are inclined to agree.

* HowWeGotHere: [=OM1=] is told in flashback form; we first meet Nikki in hospital as a [[CoincidentalBroadcast background news broadcast]] fills us in on backstory; then, after Nikki's little monologue ("I remember now... I remember how it started..."), the instrumental "Anarchy-X" marks the transition into the flashback proper. (Similarly, the later instrumental "Waiting For 22" marks the transition ''out'' of the flashback.)

* LastNoteNightmare: "Eyes Of A Stranger" on [=OM1=] ends with a one-two punch: a heavily distorted, demonic voice screaming '''''REVOLUTION!!!!!!!!''''' and a reprise of "I Remember Now".
* MadnessMontage: the coda to "Eyes Of A Stranger".

* AntiHero[=/=]AntiVillain: Nikki overall presumably qualifies as one or the other; he may have been an assassin, but he was motivated by a desire to cleanse a corrupt system and, to be fair, he was brainwashed into carrying out the assassinations.

* BigNo: Used at the end of "Breaking The Silence" in [=OM1=]. Nikki is accused of her death by the voices in his head, causing him to scream this.

Added DiffLines:

* DrugsAreBad: It's pretty unlikely anyone who listens to the album's lyrics will have any desire to try heroin after that, to put it mildly.

'''Note:''' ''Operation: mindcrime'' is deliberately sparse on details of Mary's death, especially pertaining to the identity of her killer. The video compilation ''Video: mindcrime'' included several possible interpretations; and a Queensrÿche concert show from the late 90s provided further extrapolation; however, for purposes of this page, only the original album is being considered canon.
