* HilariousInHindsight: The Opeth fandom is known to have a Music/SteelPanther-like parody called "Akerstache" that associate itself with cock rock-like music (in vein with poking humor at the band) and connecting it to Nickelback "HoYay" subtext, and [[ArsonMurderAndJaywalking "soft furry kittens"]] only for in 2016 in the band's published biography that Mikael had a friend who was in a "cock-rock" group called ''Crimson Cats''.

* BrokenBase: Opeth's new direction after ''Heritage'' has been this by fans, to the point [[FanDumb some fans will attack and mock fans and the band due to their new direction, feeling it's '70s rip off music']].

* MagnumOpus: Generally considered to be ''Blackwater Park'', to the point where the band has been known to perform the entire album live.
** And before that album, ''Still Life'' is considered one of the best albums that ''isn't'' named ''Blackwater Park''.

* EpilepticTrees: Many speculate that Mikael Akerfeldt is one of the nameless ghouls in the Swedish hard rock band Music/{{Ghost}} (known in North America as Ghost B.C.). Some feel that he downright gave it away with the band's cover of "I'm a Marionette" by Music/{{ABBA}}, as he's a huge fan of them (and has been known to wear their shirts during Opeth concerts).

* EpilepticTrees: Many speculate that Mikael Akerfeldt is one of the nameless ghouls in the Swedish hard rock band Music/{{Ghost}} (known in North America as Ghost B.C.). for a period of time due to licensing issues). Some feel that he downright gave it away with the band's cover of "I'm a Marionette" by Music/{{ABBA}}, as he's a huge fan of them (and has been known to wear their shirts during Opeth concerts). Further cementing the claim is the fact that Mikael jokingly admitted to being a member of the band when he toured with them and Music/{{Mastodon}} on the Heritage Hunter tour of 2012; these same fans apparently missed the memo that half of what Mikael says onstage is pure snark, and that he followed the "member of Ghost" claim by also admitting that he wrote all of Mastodon's songs.



* TheyChangedItNowItSucks: Many people had this reaction to ''Heritage''. Gloriously inverted, however, with ''Damnation''.

** Amusingly enough, this also has traits of BeCarefulWhatYouWishFor, since one of the most common complaints lodged against Opeth by "casual fans" and people who tried to get into them - hell, even among some of their ''fans'' - is that their music keeps alternating between jazzy, 70's prog rock and straight death metal, and it wasn't uncommon to hear this followed up with something to the effect of "I wish they'd pick a genre and stick with it!". Judging from recent interviews with Mikael saying that he doesn't have too many plans to keep writing metal (although this won't stop them from playing more of their metallic songs live as opposed to the almost exclusively acoustic/prog-influenced back material they'd showcased in some recent tours), they did.

* CoveredUp: While not exactly the case, Mikael tends to name songs and albums after obscure progressive rock and metal bands of the seventies. Who honestly remembers bands named Blackwater Park, Still Life, Master's Apprentices, or Heir Apparent?
** Though the original is still far more well known, there's more than one person who is unaware that "Would?" was originally by Music/AliceInChains.
** While it isn't a cover, anyone who has listened to Camel's "Never Let Go", can tell that "Benighted" uses many elements from that song. This isn't surprising, as Mikael cites Music/{{Camel}} as a huge musical influence on him.
