* BrokenBase: Ohhhh where to begin... if the band jumped the shark after a certain album, or if it was when a key member left, or which era was better, so on...
%%* FaceOfTheBand: Dani Filth.
* ItsPopularNowItSucks: The reaction of many black metal fans to their popularity.
* NightmareRetardant: The band tries hard to look scary. Unfortunately, Dani is short, round-faced and has a posh middle-class accent, so it doesn't really work.
** Particularly in his newer work in which he wears glittery face paint, making him look like, according to one Youtube commenter, [[Film/{{Labyrinth}} the Goblin King]].
* SignatureSong: "Cruelty Brought Thee Orchids" or "Her Ghost in the Fog".
* TheyChangedItNowItSucks: And since they introduce a change to their sound with just about every new release, this happens a lot.
