! Five Finger Death Punch provides examples of:

* TheAlcoholic: Ivan Moody, and it has taken a very significant and public toll on both him and the band as a whole.
* AntiHero: The lyrics to "Wrong Side of Heaven" suggest that Ivan is a cross between these this and NobleDemon, along with the album title referencing this.
* AtomicFBomb: Ivan bellows out a massive "'''''BURN, MOTHERFUCKER!'''''" before the final chorus of "Burn MF".
* AwesomeMcCoolname: Zoltan Bathory.
* BadassBoast: Half of their output. "Ashes" deserves special mention, as does "Bulletproof".
* BaldOfAwesome: Chris Kael. He also has a BadassBeard to go along with it.
* CallingTheOldManOut: "The Devil's Own", perhaps the most vicious musical example in recent memory.
* ClusterFBomb: To say the least...
** The song "Burn MF" contains at least 40 instances of "fuck"--the vast majority of those being "motherfucker".
* ConceptAlbum: ''War Is the Answer'' has a lot of tracks that seem to be military themed: "No One Gets Left Behind", "Far from Home", and "Bulletproof", to name a few.
** ''American Capitalist'' is similar, having a very heavy patriotic theme--albeit with sarcastic tones in several songs.
* CoverVersion: "From Out of Nowhere" (originally by Music/FaithNoMore), "Bad Company" (from the band of the same name off the album of the same name), "Mama Said Knock You Out" (from LL Cool J--their version features Tech N9ne), "House of the Rising Sun" (a traditional folk song made famous by The Animals)...
* CurseCutShort: On "Under and Over It": "Did you know I don't care? You can suck my..." (alludes to rhyming with "prick")
* DareToBeBadass: Their lyrics have a running theme of self-empowerment and dealing with people that have wronged you, ranging from 'you're so insignificant it's not worth being angry' to...[[RoaringRampageOfRevenge somewhat less pacifist solutions]].
* {{Determinator}}: "Back for More" seems to be about one.
* HotBlooded: Damn straight.
* JekyllAndHyde: "Jekyll and Hyde", the lead single off of ''Got Your Six'', seems to be about this trope.
* KillItWithFire: "Burn MF" invokes this so much, particularly in the chorus.
* {{Mascot}}: The Knucklehead, noted for his [[SkullForAHead skeletal head]], red, hand-shaped FacialMarkings with a 5 in the middle and the spiky, four-fingered brass knuckle clenched in his teeth. [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mQUk1Bt0pz4 He was the subject of a video]] parodying The Most Interesting Man in the World ads.
* MohsScaleOfRockAndMetalHardness: Usually an 8 or 9, but they can drop down sometimes, even going as low as a 2 or 3 on some songs.
* NietzscheWannabe: The narrator of "White Knuckles".
* OmnicidalManiac: "White Knuckles", "Burn It Down"--we'd be here all day if we tried to name them all...
* ProtestSong: A lot of songs come across this way, particularly on ''War Is the Answer''.
** "No One Gets Left Behind" is an attack on politicians who exploit the military and start pointless wars for their own gain instead of actually respecting the troops and defending the country.
* RatedMForManly: Their music consists of brutal, fast riffs over powerful percussion and enraged vocals declaring how Ivan wants to go on a RoaringRampageOfRevenge.
* ReligionRantSong: "Salvation" is sort of one, although it is more critical to religious conservatives rather than religion itself. "Burn It Down" could be interpreted as one as well.
* RuleOfCool: There really isn't a band out there more suited for good old fashioned wanton destruction.
* SanitySlippageSong: Many of their songs could be taken this way, but "My Own Hell" is the most straightforward example.
* SopranoAndGravel: Ivan provides a rare solo version. He can go from a smooth melody to an incredibly harsh growl, usually within the same song.
* SurprisinglyGentleSong: "Far from Home" off ''War Is the Answer'', especially after its use in ''Series/CriminalMinds''. There's also "Crossing Over", which contains none of their signature heavy riffs or screaming vocals whatsoever. "Remember Everything" is probably the biggest example of this trope, and "Battle Born" also deserves a mention.
* TakeThat: They're quite...vocal critics to say the least.
* TakeThatCritics: While onstage, Ivan Moody has been known to attack "music nerds who badmouth Five Finger Death Punch on the internet from [[BasementDweller their mom's basements."]]
** "Under and Over It" tells their critics to suck something which rhymes with "prick".
* TheCameo: Quiet a few on ''Wrong Side of Heaven..., Vol. 1'', including Tech N9ne on their cover of "Mama Said Knock You Out", Maria Brink of In This Moment on "Anywhere but Here", Jamey Jasta of Hatebreed on "Dot Your Eyes", Max Cavelara of Soulfly on "I.M Sin", and most notable Rob Halford of Judas Priest on "Lift Me Up."
* TitleDrop: The title track off of ''American Capitalist'' retroactively does this for their first two albums:
--> Yeah, war is the answer like I told you before!
-->You're a coward with no power, just a stain on the floor!
-->If you're a man, be a man, stop running your lips!
-->Round three, no mercy, it's the way of the fist!''
** ''Wrong Side of Heaven..., Vol. 1'' also does this in the title track.
* YoungerThanTheyLook: Ivan was born in 1980, but he looks like he's in his early-to-mid-40s. Which is strange, because he was in his mid-''20s'' when the band's debut was recorded, and looked that age.
