** The pre-Scooter group Celebrate The Nun, in addition to being in an 80s new wave style, features all singing and all original songs. Furthermore, HP's lyrics in such tracks as "Ordinary Town" and "She's A Secretary" actually tell coherent stories (albeit in amusingly Broken English). Occasionally, Rick's sister Britt would provide lead vocals (at normal pitch). The group wanted her back for Scooter, but she declined so they got Rick's wife Nikk instead (who performs most of their infamous high pitched vocals).

* B-Side: The band has included a previously unreleased track as a B-Side on the majority of their German singles. The majority of them are instrumentals. Scooter's B-Sides are a special case because for many fans, they show the creativity of Rick J Jordan that is often overlooked with their singles. Some of them, in particular "Back In Time", "Bramfeld" and "Giant's Causeway" are more popular than some album tracks amongst fans.

* HardcoreTechno: "Crank It Up", "Bramfeld", "Path" and "Everlasting Love" take inspiration from the heavier side of Hardcore Techno, being distinct from their usual Happy Hardcore style.

** "Apache Rocks The Bottom" is a fusion of two "Who's Got The Last Laugh Now?" tracks. It combines the verses of "Rock Bottom" and the chorus of "Apache" with some new elements. The single mix of "Rock Bottom" (which was released in The Netherlands and UK instead), features the original Rock Bottom chorus instead of the Apache one. Furthermore, the version of the track played on their "Excess All Areas" live album is essentially "Apache Rocks The Bottom" with the original "Rock Bottom" coda added at the end.

* MemeticMutation: The line "Siberia, the place to be" from The Logical Song has long been ironically remade by (chiefly British) listeners as "[British town], the place to be", with the implication of making an unexciting place sound like an exciting place.

* DubInducedPlothole: A variation that applied to people in the UK. The line "Scooter! Are you Ratty?" in The Logical Song is a reference to the band's pseudonym Ratty, under which they put out two singles "Sunrise (Here I Am)" and "Living On Video" in 2000, prior to Sheffield coming out. "Sunrise" was a big club hit - made more so by the fact DJs who wouldn't normally play Scooter were playing it. Whilst the band didn't officially indicate their involvement in the Ratty songs at the time, they were subject to a lot of speculation about it. Their connection was confirmed when they issued an alternate mix of Sunrise entitled Sunrise (Ratty's Inferno) on the B-Side of the Scooter single She's The Sun. Now this is relevant because none of the Ratty singles, nor many other Scooter releases were released in the UK, and as a result, everyone in the UK thought the line was "Scooter! Are you ready?".

* WritersBlock: The band have acknowledged that they had this on the album Sheffield, due to being bored of their previous styles but not sure what to change to. They felt the Scooter name was so associated with happy hardcore that they put out club singles under pseudonyms like Ratty and Guess Who? They also had it more pronounced on We Bring The Noise, where every track is written in a different style precisely for the reason that the band didn't have many ideas in any particular style. This was also why they reintroduced the high pitched voice for Posse (I Need You On The Floor), which turned out to fill that creative gap for over a decade (much to the [[BrokenBase annoyance]] of some of their fanbase).
