* MrFanservice
* WalkingShirtlessScene

!Till Lindemann - vocals


--> ''"Music sometimes gives me a quantity of creativeness - [[TheAlcoholic you're drinking another glass of wine and you're feeling even worse]]. [[TrueArtIsAngsty Art doesn't work without pain; art also exists for compensating pain]]."''

The FaceOfTheBand. He was born in EastGermany in 1963. He participated in Germany's swim team for the Moscow olympics of 1980, but was sacked. His musical career started with First Arsch, a PunkRock band where he met his later bandmates Richard Kruspe and Paul Landers before Rammstein. He's also a poet and is the father of four (known, considering his sexcapades) children.


* AbusiveParents: Apparently, he suffered from an abusive alcoholic dad, who would dish out serious beatings on him. This theme is revisited in many of their songs.
* BadassBaritone
* BerserkButton: Accusing the band of having [[AllGermansAreNazis Nazi sympathies]] [[GodwinsLaw or similar]] seems to be one for him.
* BoisterousBruiser
* TheBigGuy: He's ''extremely'' muscular. An issue of ''Kerrang!'' magazine described him as having "the physique of a professional wrestler".
* EvilChef: He dresses up as one during "Mein Teil" in the Völkerball tour/DVD.
* EvilLaugh: In "Benzin".
* EvilSoundsDeep: Does it ever.
* [[spoiler:FakingTheDead]]: In "Haifisch".
%% Don't add FetishFuel here. TVTropes isn't accepting that anymore.
* GentleGiant: He's more like this in real life.
* {{Hunk}}
* IncendiaryExponent: He ''is'' a licensed pyrotechnician after all.
** PyroManiac
* [[spoiler:KillItWithFire]]: [[spoiler:He's [[CruelAndUnusualDeath burned at the stake]]]] in the video for "Rosenrot".
* LargeHam: One of his signature mannerisms is to partially squat and pound his fist onto his thigh to the beat of the riff. This didn't start as a mannerism, but when he realized it looked cool he kept doing it. The reason he originally did it? His [[EnforcedMethodActing kneecap popped out of place]] [[{{Badass}} and he had to pound it back in.]]
* ManOnFire: He used to wear a jacket that was on fire during live performances of the song "Rammstein". Now he just wears flamethrowers on his arms, but that still counts. He upgraded this to fire ''wings'' for performances of "Engel" in the newest tour.
* MayDecemberRomance: With his current girfriend, the German actress Sophia Thomalla (*1989).
* MillionairePlayboy: His character in "Pussy".
* MrFanservice
* OvershadowedByAwesome: First Arsch, a band he was with Richard and Paul before Rammstein. It scarcely gets a footnote in TheOtherWiki these days.
* PerpetualFrowner: In all the pictures of him floating out there in music magazines, sanctioned official pictures, and candid shots from fans, he's seen cracking a smile a ''handful'' of times.
* [[spoiler:PornStache]]: In "Haifisch".
* ProphetEyes: Towards the end of "Mein Land".
* PungeonMaster
* RatedMForManly
* SlasherSmile: He is prone to unleashing smiles of this sort in some music videos and photoshoots.
* TakeThat: [[spoiler:If you believe the [[AlternateCharacterInterpretation interpretation]] that the other band members did try to murder him, the postcard he sends to them at the end of "Haifisch" is this, sort of a 'nyah, nyah, you didn't kill me'. Roughly translated, said postcard reads "Greetings from the arse of the world!". He sent that from Hawaii.]]
* TallDarkAndHandsome
* TrailersAlwaysSpoil: Promotional pictures for Haifisch included ones of [[spoiler:PornStache!Till at Hawaii]].
* TrrrillingRrrs
* [[spoiler:TwistEnding]]: In "Haifisch", [[spoiler:he's alive]].
!Richard Z. Kruspe - guitars


--> ''"You simply know that there is a certain role for you to play in life. You receive certain signs and then take on that role. That's normal."''

The band's main guitar player. Born as Richard Zven Kruspe in 1967. He was living with his future bandmates Oliver Riedel and Christoph Schneider, and left his first band, "Orgasm Death Gimmicks", when in the mid-nineties he co-founded Rammstein with both of them, Till Lindemann and Paul Landers.


* BadassLongcoat: It's his signature clothing item. He wears a new Badass Longcoat in almost every tour. And two different ones in Emigrate videos "My World" and "New York City".
* ADayInTheLimelight: His side project Emigrate.
%% Don't add FetishFuel here. TVTropes isn't accepting that anymore.
* OvershadowedByAwesome: First Arsch, a band he shared with Till and Paul before Rammstein. Emigrate, his side project, was fairly successful in its own right, but it has a fanbase pretty much limited to the already established Richard fanbase.
!Paul Landers - guitars



* AttractiveBentGender: [[ Perhaps surprisingly]].
* TheBigGuy: Even he, the shortest member of the band, is around 5'9".
* {{Cowboy}}: His character in "Pussy".
* DoNotCallMePaul: His full name is Heiko Paul Hiersche. He first decided to go by his middle name and then took his first wife's (now divorced) last name.
* OvershadowedByAwesome: Feeling B, the band he shared with Flake and Schneider before Rammstein. They were a moderately successful punk rock band in East Germany, but got nowhere near the international acclaim Rammstein did. And also First Arsch, where he played with Till and Richard.
!Oliver "Ollie" Riedel - bass



* BadassBeard
* BaldOfAwesome
* TheBigGuy: Estimations of his height range from 6'4" to 6'7", but he's definitely the tallest.
* DoNotCallMePaul: It's 'Ollie' Riedel, not 'Oliver'.
* {{Fanservice}}: The "Pussy" video has him playing a BDSM fetishist character.
* [[OnlyKnownByTheirNickname Only Known As Ollie]].
* TheQuietOne: He's often noted to come across as introverted and shy when meeting fans.
!Christoph "Doom" Schneider - drums



* AttractiveBentGender: Behold, [[ Frau Schneider]]!
* DoomyDoomsOfDoom
* DoNotCallMePaul: He's mainly called Schneider or Doom, not Christoph.
* DudeLooksLikeALady: As Frau Schneider.
* EmbarrassingNickname: When he found there was already a musician registered by the name of Christoph Schneider, he picked the nickname "Doom" simply because he liked [[{{VideoGame/Doom}} the video game]]. He has stated in interviews that if he had known the name would be printed in every booklet of every CD, he would have picked a different one.
* KillItWithFire: What he dreamed to do to Till in "Haifisch".
* ManOnFire: His character in the video for "Du Hast".
* [[OnlyKnownByTheirNickname Only Known As Doom]]
** Weirdly, more people refer to him as 'Schneider' than 'Doom'.
* OvershadowedByAwesome: Feeling B, the band he shared with Paul and Flake.
* {{Transvestite}}: In the "Mein Teil" video, and during the ''Made in Germany'' tour.
!Christian "Flake" Lorenz - keyboards



* ButtMonkey / TheChewToy: He was blown up in "Ich Will", jumped off a building in "Benzin", played a hermaphrodite in "Pussy" (hardly the most flattering role) and was left standing and unable to return to his wheelchair at the end of "Keine Lust". And in live performances, he has been faux-sodomised, cooked, hit around the head, and God knows what else. Ironically, this is ''exactly'' why Flake is a fan favorite. Not in the schadenfreudeic sense, of course.
* CoolShades: Often wears them during live performances.
* ADayInTheLimelight: He's the one singing in the cover of "[[Music/TheRamones Pet Semetary]]", on the ''Ich Will'' single.
* DeathByGluttony: His intended method of murdering Till in "Haifisch". Almost definitely a shoutout to ''Film/{{Se7en}}''.
* DoNotCallMePaul: He doesn't like his given name and maintains "Flake" is his proper name.
* [[spoiler: DrivenToSuicide]]: His character in the "Benzin" video.
* {{Fanservice}}: The live performance of "Bück Dich" involves him in bondage gear on all fours.
%% Don't add FetishFuel here. TVTropes isn't accepting that anymore.
* {{Hermaphrodite}}: In the video for "Pussy".
* [[spoiler:InterruptedSuicide]]: In the video for "Benzin", [[spoiler:he plays a jumper and the other five, firemen, who get out a trampoline to try and save his life, but ultimately fail when the tarp tears just as he jumps.]]
* ItIsPronouncedTroPAY: His (nick)name is actually pronounced "Flah-kuh", not "Flay-ke", as some believe.
* NotThatKindOfDoctor: Sometimes he is credited as Doktor Christian Lorenz. He has no known degree; the moniker came about because at one point he had wanted to be a surgeon, but was unable to enter school to become one because he was a conscientious objector, at a time when conscription into the East German army was mandatory. Nevertheless, he has mentioned in at least one interview [[CrowningMomentOfHeartwarming he sometimes still feels like a bit of a doctor when fans write to the band and mention how Rammstein's music has saved their life.]]
* [[OnlyKnownByTheirNickname Only Known As Flake]].
* OvershadowedByAwesome: Feeling B, the band he shared with Paul and Schneider before Rammstein.
* [[spoiler:SuicideAttack]]: His character [[spoiler:has a bomb strapped to his chest]] in the video for "Ich Will".
