* HarsherInHindsight: The song "Tears of a Clown" from ''The Book Of Souls'' was devoted to Creator/RobinWilliams, and contained the line "there's something that inside has died". A couple of months after the track's release, [[http://www.torontosun.com/2015/11/03/robin-williams-had-just-three-years-to-live-widow it transpired that Robin Williams had been given only three years to live]] after being diagnosed with dementia.

** "2 Minutes to Midnight" became either this or a FunnyAneurysmMoment in 2018 after the actual DoomsdayClock's hands were once again set to two minutes to... well, [[ShapedLikeItself midnight]].

* ComeForTheXStayForTheY: As a Creator/VH1 list said: "Even classical music would sell more if their albums had zombies in the cover!" In short, come for [[{{Mascot}} Eddie]], stay for the EpicRocking, Dickinson's LargeHam, the {{Filk Song}}s, [[Awesome/IronMaiden the awesome]] [[GreatBallsOfFire shows]] and of course, [[CrowningMusic/IronMaiden the awesome music]].

** MOOOOONCHILD! HEAR THE MANDRAKE SCREEEEAAAAM!!!



* ParanoiaFuel: "Fear of the Dark". *Shiver* Every so often, the lyrics replace "someone" with "some''thing''". Of course, it's implied the singer feels this way because [[childrenShouldntWatchHorrorMovies he binged on horror films.]]

* FollowTheLeader: "Be Quick Or Be Dead" is blatantly inspired by JudasPriest's "Painkiller" which was a year old at the time of the song's writing. Both songs see the bands taking on ThrashMetal influences which weren't previously present. "Painkiller" also inspired ex-vocalist Paul Di'Anno's song "Impaler" from his band Killers' album Murder One, also released in 1992.

** Also from "2 Minutes to Midnight": "As the reasons for the carnage cut their meat and lick the gravy/We oil the jaws of the war machine and feed it with our babies."
