** {{Jossed}} in April 2017, when former Nameless Ghouls sued Ghost lead singer Papa Emeritus, exposing all their identities. Mikael was not one of them.

* HypeBacklash: While they are universally respected, finding people that don't care for them personally are not as hard to find as you think.

*** It's safe to say the entirety of ''Still Life'' is pretty heart-wrenching, being [[spoiler: A story of an atheist returning to his religious home to find his beloved only to lose her in the end and himself be executed by the end. [[ItGetsBetter It thankfully gives us a bittersweet aspect]] with him [[TogetherInDeath reuniting with her by the end]]]].

* 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.
