* CarefulWIthThatAxe: The first ~30 seconds of ''The Last In Line'' are pretty gung-ho...then the real song starts.



** The [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mEV4Tov1GBM music video]] for ''The Last in Line'' makes less than no sense -- it makes negative sense. All we can say is...it was TheSeventies.[[note]]However, the video is no less awesome for it.[[/note]]

James Dio provides examples of:



* BerserkButton: Vivian Campbell, the ex-guitarist of his solo act. [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zOwZBo8FQvo Observe.]] He starts ranting at about 45 seconds in. According to [[http://www.blabbermouth.net/news/vinny-appice-explains-vivian-campbell-s-hostility-toward-ronnie-james-dio/ Vinnie Appice]] their mutual dislike stemmed from arguments over band business decisions that Viv disagreed with. Ronnie did later [[http://www.blabbermouth.net/news/jimmy-bain-firing-vivian-campbell-was-the-biggest-mistake-of-ronnie-james-dio-s-career/ express some regret]] for his harsh words.
* BewareTheNiceOnes: He was normally a pretty nice, calm guy... until you pissed him off. See BerserkButton.
* BluesRock: Before Dio joined {{Music/Rainbow}}, Elf's music awesomely combined HardRock with RhythmAndBlues.
* TheCameo: ''Music/TenaciousD'' appeared on the music video of "Push". He then appeared on ''Film/TenaciousDInThePickOfDestiny'' as himself.

* UrExample: His work (solo and as a member of Music/{{Rainbow}} and Music/BlackSabbath) was a huge influence on PowerMetal both musically and lyrically, and he's sometimes credited as inventing it, though it tends to differ from most later PowerMetal due to being slower and a bit less technically flashy on average.

** He further collaborated with Malmsteen and added [[Music/JudasPriest Tim]] [[IcedEarth "Ripper"]] [[Music/YngwieMalmsteen Owens]] to the mix to cover Music/OzzyOsbourne's [[Creator/AleisterCrowley "Mr. Crowley"]]. In both of his collaborations with the guitarist, Malmsteen plays approximately two or three times more notes than necessary.

* AwesomeMcCoolName: His last name means 'God' in Italian. If that ain't cool enough for you, it was also cool enough to influence one half of the name for ''[[Manga/JoJosBizarreAdventure Dio Brando]]''.
