* FandomRivalry: With the fandom of {{Skrillex}}. Odd, because Skrillex himself is a '''HUGE''' fan of Aphex Twin, so much he declared him as his main influence.
** Becomes even more odd if you consider that Aphex openly stated he doesn't know much of Skrillex to give an opinion of him, but also said that he respects the more mainstream electronic music artists, finding them as a {{gateway|Series}} to electronic music in general.
* HellIsThatNoise:
** "Ventolin", which combines a piercing tone with crunching and discordant beats. Has been known to cause migraine.
** The robotic voice in "Come to Daddy" chanting about how much they're craving your soul. Special mention goes to [[CarefulWithThatAxe that scream.]]
* MagnumOpus: ''Selected Ambient Works 85-92'' is often considered this by the fandom and by critics, although ''Come to Daddy'', ''Drukqs'' and ''Syro'' are commonly-cited contenders as well.
* MemeticMutation:
** Variations of the titles of his first two albums have seen widespread homage, especially from ambient artists.
** COME TO DADDY!
** His infamous grin has been used/shopped quite a few times.
* MisattributedSong:
** Subverted with VideoGame/{{Pac-Man}}, which he released under the alias "Power Pill".
** Averted with being credited to making a {{Tetris}} remix.
** A handful of songs on [=P2P=] networks were generally attributed to him. One of the most famous ones, "outside (kick ass violin solo)", is actually a song by Outside called "To Forgive But Not Forget (Lim'chol V'lo Lishkoach)".
* MostWonderfulSound:
** A lot of his ambient tracks, especially tracks composed of individual musical arrangements looped for 6-12 minutes like on ''Selected Ambient Works Volume II''.
** When the distorted bass comes in at the end of "Windowlicker".
** For some, the "Come to Daddy" scream might even be this.
* {{Narm}}: While "Come To Daddy" is still an awesome song, some of the lyrics are a bit over-the-top. '''[[EvilIsHammy "I WILL EAT YOUR SOOOOUUUUL!!!"]]'''
* NightmareFuel: [[NightmareFuel/AphexTwin Now has its own page.]]
* SignatureSong: "Come to Daddy" and "Windowlicker" are his two greatest commercial hits, although songs like "Avril 14th" and "Flim" are deemed by fans to be some of his best works.
* SongAssociation:
** Most racing game fans would associate "Come To Daddy" with ''[[VideoGame/ProjectGothamRacing Project Gotham Racing 3]]'' and ''[[VideoGame/{{Motorstorm}} Motorstorm Pacific Rift]]''.
** Of course, "Windowlicker" is in ''VideoGame/GrandTheftAutoV''.
* SweetDreamsFuel:
** ''Selected Ambient Works 85-92'' and ''Selected Ambient Works Volume II'' are full of these - see the trope page.
** To say nothing of "Flim" and "Avril 14th."
** "Goon Gumpas" and "Logan Rock Witch" both sound like something that would fit extremely well on a Disney soundtrack.
** "IZ-US" is a pretty relaxing song if you don't mind a little percussion.
** The sections of "Girl/Boy Song" that don't have the erratic percussion. It's actually a very beautiful orchestral song that wouldn't sound too out-of-place in a cartoon and is even accompanied by a xylophone riff near the end of the song.
* TearJerker:
** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CfYl6_f2Mdg "Avril 14th"]] and [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=o7pzBtRLED8 jynweythek]], with both being desolate piano pieces on ''Drukqs''.
** [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GvfbIU8LYyY "Rhubarb"]] and [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=goDd02TTxBA "Stone in Focus"]], with both being ambient ''SAW Vol II'' pieces.
** "Nannou", a song dedicated to his girlfriend composed wholly from music box samples.
** Richard made the Aphex Twin name as a memorial of sorts to his older brother, also named Richard, who died at birth. The ''Girl/Boy EP'' cover is a picture of his grave decorated with flowers. And likewise, "Girl/Boy Song" is a pretty heavy listen despite being a thematically and aesthetically whimsical track.
** The utter SweetDreamsFuel that is "Flim" and "Fingerbib".
