* DeathlyPallor: The cover art for ''From Spirits and Ghosts'' has Tarja's skin painted stark white, save for bright red lips; the music videos for the album (e.g. [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=spJlqZIHK24 "O Come, O Come, Emmanuel"]]) have even her hair and clothes white.



* TakeThat: Tarja responded to her former band's personal attacks in ''Dark Passion Play'' with [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=imBsSIFjPfA "Enough"]], which accuses Tuomas Holopainen of being a prima donna who choked her with darkness and couldn't comprehend that her love for her husband Marcelo Cabuli is genuine.

They've reconciled somewhat since then: Tarja has spoken approvingly of her replacement Anette Olzon's performances and is friends with Anette's replacement Floor Jansen (which dates to Floor's time with Music/AfterForever), and has had guest appearances in her solo career by Floor and, in 2017, by Marco Hietala.
