The band provides examples of the following tropes:
- Album Title Drop:
I my communion, I reign supremeI am the king of all kings
- King of All Kings:
Therefore I must shed my skin, in a world so fabled, so false.I, MonarchMaster of what shall be,
- I, Monarch:
Rise! Rise! Rise!Phoenix amongst the ashesRise! Rise! Rise!
- Phoenix Among The Ashes:
- All Drummers Are Animals: Chason Westmoreland is notorious for his very physical and aggressive playing style, which makes heavy use of improvisation.
- Brutal Death Metal
- Drugs Are Bad: Drug use played a big role in Anderson's death.
- Epic Rocking: "Infernus" (6:27).
- Grief Song: "Tombeau (Le Tombeau de la Fureur et Des Flammes)" was one for Anderson, and Fury and Flames had overtones of this as a whole.
- Harsh Vocals: Erik Rutan uses a throaty bellow that is somewhat similar to David Vincent's vocals circa Covenant, just with a more roar-like character. The backing vocalists, meanwhile, have always used higher-pitched shrieks.
- I Am the Band: Erik Rutan.
- Instrumentals: "Faceless One" and "Chaos Theory".
- I Want You to Meet an Old Friend of Mine: Shaune Kelley had played with Rutan in Ripping Corpse a long while back and had carried that band on after its demise as Dim Mak, so he was still devoted to death metal, and he was also still good friends with Rutan. The only reason that he didn't stay is because he realized that he really hated touring.
- Lead Bassist: Most have been Type B examples (and Type A by extent due to the complexity of the arrangements), though Anderson was also a Type C due to his untimely demise and the effect it had on Rutan.
- Lead Drummer: Derek Roddy is, along with Pete Sandoval, Mike Smith, George Kollias, John Longstreth, and Flo Mounier, one of THE biggest names in death metal drumming as a whole. Ask a death metal drummer what their primary influences are and chances are very good that they'll mention Roddy's name.
- Loudness War: Noticeable on every album, ESPECIALLY Fury and Flames, which got a ton of flak for its incredibly muddy and indecipherable production. Come to think of it, pretty much every album produced by Rutan is going to have issues with this.
- Mean Character, Nice Actor: Erik Rutan has an intimidating stage presence and a vocal style that is best described as "baleful wargod", but he's an exceptionally friendly and outgoing person offstage who always takes the time to hang out with fans.
- Metal Scream: Erik Rutan is a type 1, their backing vocalists (with the exception of Shaune Kelley) have all been type 3.
- Mohs Scale of Rock and Metal Hardness: Standard 10 circa the split and first full-length, hard ten for everything after that.
- New Sound Album: I, Monarch had far denser, more complex arrangements with noticeable tribal elements.
- Older Than They Look: Jade Simonetto is 31. If you had to guess his age, you would undershoot by at least ten or twelve years, as he still looks as if he's in his late teens or early twenties.
- Revolving Door Band: Rutan's gone through a LOT of bassists in his time.
- Rock Trio: Since 2008, when Shaune Kelley quit.
- Signature Style: Exceedingly fast, blast-heavy material with occasional atmospheric overtones in the leads and heavy use of octave chords to create a form of otherworldly dissonance. Also expect a few slower-paced Morbid Angel-esque tracks here and there. Erik Rutan also has an easily recognizable lead style that makes heavy use of Middle Eastern scales, lengthy sustained vibrato in lieu of shred passages, occasional quick bursts of rapid-fire alternative picking, and an extremely distinctive tone that virtually anyone who has listened to a decent amount of death metal will be able to pick out pretty much instantly.
- Special Guest: This was essentially what Alex Webster was on Fury and Flames. Rutan also does this from time to time, usually laying down a guitar solo for a band he's producing.
- Start My Own: Rutan started the band sometime after his first departure from Morbid Angel.
- Eric Hersemann did the same with Gigan after his brief run in Hate Eternal.
- Technical Death Metal: Not a full-fledged example, but certainly has shades of this.
- Teen Genius: Chason Westmoreland was good enough as a teenager (back when he was in Burning the Masses) to attract attention from both the bands that he was touring with and Erik Rutan himself; the latter discovered him when a member of another band that was on a touring bill with Burning the Masses told Rutan to watch him in action. Rutan was impressed enough by his performance that he placed him at the top of the list of drummers to contact when Jade left in 2013.
- Uncommon Time: Frequently.
