* CrowningMusicOfAwesome - A lot of it.



* GrowingTheBeard: ''Into the Electric Castle'' is where Ayreon really took off with upped production, ambitious songwriting, fully realized RockOpera concept and real star power in guest vocalists. It was also Ayreon's first actual commercial and critical success and regarded by many to be the MagnumOpus of the series.

* JerkassWoobie: Me before the resolution of Human Equation most definitely was NOT a nice person, though it is caused by much the same things that made him TheWoobie in the first place.



* NightmareFuel:
** The first track of the Human Equation's second disk, aptly called Trauma. It starts with 2 minutes of instrumental synths that gets you back into the story. Which then has Logic calm as ever, describe how Me's mother died of grief after Father left and never getting over the guilt. Worse still, the track gets soft and droning, until Anger gives a death metal scream, of "You're better off dead!" followed by all Me's emotions attempts of getting him to commit suicide.
*** It's even more impressive when you realise the "You're better off dead!" scream is actually Fear, not Rage. Fear, who has so far been by far the most subtle and least hammy of the emotions, devolves into metal screams and grunting in this song.
*** Makes it more understandable when you know Fear is [[Music/{{Opeth}} Mikael Akerfeldt]].
* TheWoobie: Most protagonists and quite a few other characters qualify, but Me from the Human Equation is the most prominant..
** JerkassWoobie: Me before the resolution of Human Equation most definitely was NOT a nice person, though it is caused by much the same things that made him TheWoobie in the first place.
** The Prodigy from ''The Theory of Everything''.

* {{Narm}}: Very frequently.
* NarmCharm: It's usually so awesome, you don't care.

* NarmCharm: It's usually so awesome, you don't care.The epic, overblown nature of Ayreon makes it frequently prone to this trope.

*** From what's been revealed of the Theory of Everything thus far, the Prodigy looks to be this.
