!!The Band

* {{Anvilicious}}: Quite a few of their more politically charged songs ended up like this. The most anvilicious of them all, though, are probably ''Racist Friend'' and ''War Crimes''.
* BigLippedAlligatorMoment: The song "Holiday Fortnight" on the second album is an easy listening Latin jazz instrumental, at right angles to the style of the rest of the record.
* CoveredUp: Their version of "A Message to You Rudy". Two of their earlier songs, "Gangsters" and "Too Much Too Young", also borrowed heavily from earlier Jamaican ska songs.
* FaceOfTheBand: Mostly Terry Hall and Neville Staple. Also, Jerry Dammers after Terry and Neville left.
* {{Narm}}: While Jerry Dammers was a talented songwriter, some of his lyrics could leave something to be desired.
** NarmCharm: But that's what makes it so... [[JustForPun special]].
* NightmareFuel: "The Boiler".

!!The Movie

* FridgeHorror: Nightbird's power: [[spoiler: she lays eggs, each of which supposedly contains a "trick" (i.e., knock-out gas or explosives). The horror comes in when you think about how this would work in a fight, and remember what part of the body eggs usually come...]]
* {{Moe}}: Nightbird.
