* CoveredUp: Many of the earlier covers.
* EpicRiff: Frequently; arguably the whole point of the group. "Ace of Spades" and "We Are The Road Crew" are two of the best examples.
* EvenBetterSequel: Two cases. One, Motorhead towards Hawkwind. The other, the triad "Overkill" / "Bomber" / "Ace of Spades" towards their first album.
* FanCommunityNicknames: Motörheadbangers.
* MemeticBadass: Who would win in a fistfight between Lemmy and God? Answer: [[spoiler: Trick question - Lemmy ''is'' God.]]
* MemeticSexGod: Those two things on Lemmy's face? They're not warts, they're two extra testicles created by his body to be able to [[RatedMForManly contain his incredible manliness]]. It has some basis in reality: he's apparently had sex with over 2,000 women.
* MorePopularSpinoff: of Hawkwind
* TearJerker: see WorldWarOne
