* The Scrappy: Scorda Moon is almost as hated as the album he debuted on. Even members of the band call him the "stupidest GWAR character"

* Ensemble Darkhorse: Though she left the band, Slymenstra Hymen remains one of the band's most popular characters partially for being the only female member at the time and for being pretty good at fire dancing.

** Vulvatron has positively received by fans for being similar to Slymenstra, many were disappointed when she was kicked out as quickly as she appeared.

** Cardinal Syn is remains one of the groups most popular foes, (Second only to rivaling even the Destructors)Destructos, this is mainly due to having a pretty cool design.



%%* MoralEventHorizon: Difficult to pin down. By the band's own admission, they've long since crossed it.

* SugarWiki/AwesomeMoments: Their second appearance on the Onion AV Club's cover song segment. They start with ''Billy Ocean'''s "Get Out of My Dreams (Get Into My Car)," and then smoothly segue into [[Music/TheWho Baba O'Riley]] before mashing the two up.
** Kim Dylla [[http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-3195319/Former-GWAR-frontwoman-Kim-Dylla-pro-wrestler-brags-beating-male-singer-rude-women.html putting Danny Leal of "Upon a Burning Body"]] on blast for allegedly harassing female Gwar fans at a concert, and [[http://www.metalinjection.net/latest-news/drama/upon-a-burning-body-allegedly-got-his-ass-kicked-by-former-gwar-frontwoman putting him in a chokehold because of his behaviour.]]
*** [[http://lambgoat.com/news/25197/Upon-A-Burning-Body-singer-ass-kicked-by-female Other sources dispute this,]] however. Someone who claims to have witnessed the fight said Leal walked up to a group of "belligerent and clearly intoxicated" women (including Dylla) and asked where the bathrooms were. One of the women made a rude and sarcastic comment to Leal, who responded with a nasty comment of his own. He was then allegedly attacked by Dylla, who attempted to punch him and missed, and then proceeded to laugh with the women and tell Leal: "How [she and her friends] were going to fuck them over and they couldn't do anything back because they were girls."

Added DiffLines:

* AwesomeMusic: Quite a bit of it. As far as their albums go, ''Violence Has Arrived'' is often considered their best, but ''America Must Be Destroyed'', ''Scumdogs of the Universe'', and ''Lust in Space'' are other contenders for their best album.


Added DiffLines:

* {{Squick}}: From showering their audience in (fake) human/alien blood, semen, and various other fluids to songs like [[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin "Fuckin' An Animal"]], GWAR runs the gamut of stomach-churning.
** A nice example from "Bloody Mary", the lovely phrase: "Her womb explodes in a meat maggot mesh".

** Their third appearance on the Onion AV Club's already mentioned "Undercover" series, which was also their first since the passing of Dave Brockie. The song they were supposed to be covering was Music/PetShopBoys' "West End Girls", but like their Music/BillyOcean cover, the ending mashed it up with another song -- This time it was The Jim Carroll Band's "People Who Died," with [[http://genius.com/Gwar-people-who-died-lyrics/ new lyrics]] referencing friends of the band who they'd lost over the years, including [[Music/{{Pantera}} Dimebag Darrell,]] Creator/RobinWilliams, [[Music/TypeONegative Peter Steele,]] and even ''Cory Smoot'' [[note]] The longest lasting guitarist to play Flattus Maximus [[/note]] and ''Dave Brockie'' himself (as well as his alter-ego Oderus Urungus, because TheCharacterDiedWithHim):

** The latter point can be (more or less) justified when one remembers that Oderus literally ''was'' the FaceOfTheBand - almost every interview of the band featured him, he was the only character consistently played by the same person, and let's face it - he couldn't open his mouth without saying something so completely ridiculous that it made everyone either crack up or foam at the mouth with rage; there was ''no'' in-between.
* CrossesTheLineTwice: Twice is an understatement - ''especially'' live.
