- Anvilicious: So you may be wondering why the trope name is in bold. Well, because they write very straight-to-the-point lyrics, probably the most greenhouse lyrics in all of metal, on par with a French tech-death band.
- Base Breaker - Mainly the 'alternative' albums, like Diatribes and Inside the Torn Apart.
- Crowning Moment of Funny - "You Suffer". Come on, I bet you laughed the first time you heard it!
- Love It or Hate It - As with all grindcore, really, but Napalm Death are the most visible band of the genre, so they get more focus than the others.
- Magnum Opus: From Enslavement to Obliteration, to the point it gave the name to an actual music label based on extreme metal.
- Scum is another contender.
- They Changed It, Now It Sucks - Some fans had this reaction to Harmony Corruption and Diatribes.
