- Crowning Music of Awesome: To some fans, all of their work. To others, just some albums. Probably Versus the World, or With Oden On Our Side or Twilight of the Thunder God. Really, their epic-norse-gods-axe-and-hammering-each-other-warfare-and-glory melodic death metal thing can be quite compelling.
- Face of the Band: You don't even have to be a fan of the band to be able to pick out Johan Hegg and his legendary beard.
- Narm: The other possible chance. Some people just find them over-the-top or over-confident melodeath, either their lyrics or the music itself, specially if they're fans of not-melodeath death metal. Not to mention the toy lines.
- Signature Song: would probably be "The Pursuit Of Vikings", "Death In Fire" or "Twilight Of The Thunder God".
- Tear Jerker: To some fans, "The Fate of Norns" (song).
Here I lie,On wet sand,I will not make it home.I clench my sword,In my hand;Say farewell to those I love.
- And "Runes to my Memory".
Won't feel the breeze of my home shoreNor see the lakes and winter snowMy hopeful dreams lie ripped and tornFather, I die alone
- The final verse of "Embrace of the Endless Ocean"
