* ArchivePanic: See all that above?
* AwesomeMusic: Lots of it, with ''Something/Anything?'' and ''A Wizard, a True Star'' being frequent contenders for MagnumOpus. The Beatles parodies on Utopia's ''Deface the Music'' are such effective pastiches that the track "I Just Want to Touch You" was rejected for inclusion on the soundtrack to the film ''Roadie'' because the filmmakers were afraid of getting sued for plagiarism.
* EarWorm
* EpicRiff
* NightmareFuel: The Night the Carousel Burnt Down, from Something/Anything. That ending especially—shivers....
* RetroactiveRecognition: Music/LutherVandross shows up as a backing vocalist on a few Utopia recordings.
* SeasonalRot: His output in the nineties is generally regarded as...not very good. His {{Noughties}} output is somewhat more warmly regarded, though rarely considered to be as good as his classic material.
* SignatureSong: Arguably "Hello It's Me". Also "I Saw the Light", "Can We Still Be Friends?", "We Gotta Get You a Woman", and "Bang the Drum All Day".
