!!Skelteria shows these tropes:

* AlbumTitleDrop: ''The Nightmare Begins''.
* AnimatedMusicVideo: "The Nightmare Begins" and "Free Candy For All!!!" (Although the latter is more of a slideshow.)
* AuthorAppeal: Demonic imagery. And Jane's bare feet.
* CarefulWithThatAxe: Cotner's [[Music/AnalCunt Seth-Putnam]]-esque screeches in "Incubus/Dark Harvest" and "Funeral For a Dream" are straightforward [[MetalScream metal screams]]. In fact, this trope is featured more prominently in ''Skelteria'' than in any previous works.
* ClusterFBomb: from the song "Candy Corn Pumpkins"
--->Candy Corn Pumpkins, Candy Corn Pumpkins, Candy Corn Pumpkins, FUCK!
* CoverAlbum: The EP ''Just For the Hell of It'' borderlines on this.
* DoesNotLikeShoes: Jane is a barefooter.
* DolledUpInstallment: "Inhaled Southern Darkforest" was originally recorded for a separate side project of the same name.
* DoomyDoomsOfDoom: "Filler of DOOOOOOOOOOOOOOM!"
* DramaticThunder: Used in the [[RereleaseTheSong re-recorded]] version of "The Wettening".
* EarlyInstallmentWeirdness: The ''12/15/09'' demo as listed:
** The drumming is 90% double-bass drumming with no tom-toms or crash-cymbals.
** Cotner's vocals sound like hardcore tough-guy-growling rather than the thrashy yelling-style that fans are familiar with.
** Cotner did not perform the guitar solos and instead downloaded generic solos and Dime-squeals by anonymous players.
** There are no bass lines.
** "Free Candy For All!!!" is the only recorded Skelteria song to feature a [[SpecialGuest guest performance]]: a [[BigNo NOOOOOOO!!!!]] growl courtesy of Chase Paranormal from The Sever Display.
* ExcitedShowTitle!: "Free Candy For All!!!"
* FakeShemp: In 2009, guitarist Chris Wise left the band before recording of the demo began, so Cotner downloaded generic guitar solos and "Dime-squeals" from the Internet and credited the performers as "Anonymous".
* AHellOfATime: "Roasting Marshmallows on the Fires of Hell".
* IAmTheBand: Skelteria was Evan Cotner, A Robot, and whoever he could find to play bass until he officially decided to make it a one-man band in 2012. The one-man-band era ended when Nick Klepin joined the band in November 2014. That unfortunately didn't last long since Klepin left in 2015.
* {{Instrumentals}}: "Death" from the ''12/15/09'' demo, "Open the Coffin" from ''The Nightmare Begins'', and the early guitar demo "Ear Killer".
* {{Mascot}}/MetalBandMascot: Jane of Trinity, Patron Saint of Satan.
* MindScrew: Skelteria's lyrics are typically written in a non-sequitir style. Ditto for the music videos.
* MinisculeRocking: Many of Skelteria's songs are less than 3 minutes long.
* PrecisionFStrike: Many songs contain at least one.
* RereleaseTheSong: Two songs from the 2009 demo, "The Wettening" and "St. Trinity", were re-recorded for the albums ''Just For the Hell of It'' and ''Skelteria'' respectively.
* RevolvingDoorBand: See IAmTheBand, above.
* RockMeAsmodeus: from the song "Free Candy For All!!!"
---> Music/JimiHendrix played to summon Satan and passed the torch down to us!
* {{Sampling}}: "Taco Supreme" samples the beginning of the ''[[WesternAnimation/BeavisAndButthead Beavis and Butt-Head]]'' episode "No Laughing." The "single version" adds another ''Beavis and Butt-Head'' clip to the song.
** "Funeral For a Dream" samples [[Film/BeetleJuice Beetlejuice]] and (once again) ''Beavis and Butt-Head''.
** When Skelteria performed live, clips from ''[[Disney/TheHunchbackOfNotreDame The Hunchback of Notre Dame]]'' and the [[{{Rockumentary}} rockumentary]] ''Metal: A Headbanger's Journey'' were used as intros to songs.
* {{Satan}}
* ShoutOut: UNIT#24601 for ''Literature/LesMiserables''. Also, Kotner has cited [[Music/{{Detsorgsekalf}} Detsörgsekälf]] as the inspiration for Skelteria's tongue-in-cheek style..
* TheSouthpaw: Evan Cotner is left-handed.
* SurprisinglyGentleSong: "Midnight".
* ThrashMetal
