* CutSong:
** They have quite a few, some of which are merely unfinished demos. Several are arguably finished, but simply weren't used anywhere. In a more conventional use of the trope, they also have a few B-Sides that many fans argue to this day would've made excellent album tracks. Examples include "A Human Body" from ''The Game'' sessions, "Soul Brother" from the ''Hot Space'' sessions, and "Lost Opportunity" from the ''Innuendo'' sessions. Notably, by those points in time, the first and third of those songs were not sung by Freddie.
** Of the "finished songs that weren't used at all" variety, we have "Dog with a Bone", a track that was most likely recorded between ''A Kind of Magic'' and ''The Miracle''. Likewise, "Face It Alone" (which was recorded in a rough but complete form some point afterwards) is also a notable unused track. Both songs exist around the Internet in varying quality, but always with unavoidable artefacts (such as static being very audible).

* ThrowItIn: When he was writing "'39", Brian May asked John Deacon to play double bass on the recording. While he meant it as a joke, Deacon actually could play the double bass, and showed up with one at the recording session, so May decided to use it, resulting in a very interesting skiffle feel.

* CreatorKiller: Averted, thankfully. Due to all the multi-tracking and studio effects, ''A Night at the Opera'' was the most expensive pop album ever recorded at the time, and Brian May said in later years that if it didn't succeed, the band probably would have broken up. [[CrowningMomentOfAwesome It debuted at #1 on the British charts.]]
