These are what we call the 'YMMV items.' Things that some people find in this work. We call them 'your mileage might vary' because not everyone sees these things in the same way. This starts discussions in the trope lists, a thing we don't want. Please use the discussion page if you'd like to discuss any of these items.
Alternative Character Interpretation: A lot of people believe that much of his facial scars were a result of drug abuse since coming onto the rave scene rather than acne scars from a hormone imbalance he had as a teenager.
Awesome Music: Lots. His "Cinema" remix is the most often cited, but also his "Hey Sexy Lady" remix, "Rock 'N' Roll", both versions of "With You, Friends", and many more.
"Leaving" shows that he can also handle classic, subtle Burial-esque garage/dubstep.
Critical Backlash: Since his hype has started to die down, people are getting tired of seeing his name mentioned everywhere compared to the likes of Lil Wayne, Justin Bieber, Katy Perry, etc.. Especially on videos of other electronic artists, specifically Aphex Twin...Whom is probably Skrillex's biggest influence.
Face of the Band: Back when he was in From First to Last. As a solo artist, there's really no one else to be the face.
Fan Dumb: Almost as strong as the Hate Dumb, but not quite. His popularity has brought a lot of people into dubstep for the wrong reasons, most just looking for "filthy" bass lines, while most dubstep is centered around dark ambiance and minimalism. Therefore every producer ever is inferior to Skrillex. Another thing that his Fan Dumb is partially responsible for is that while he is frequently considered the posterboy of modern dubstep, he only barely fits the description in a few songs and his output is mostly Electronic Genre Roulette. This causes a lot of newcomers to mistake anything electronic as "Dubstep", be it Daft Punk, Deadmau5, or Pendulum.
In other words, the fact that some of his music is dubstep led people new to EDM to think all his music and all EDM is dubstep. Or worse, that it has to be dubstep.
Hate Dumb: Skrillex seems to be attributed to single-handedly ruining dubstep and bringing it to the mainstream, despite the fact that he only really gained mainstream popularity in the beginning of 2011, during which the dubstep craze had already long been fueled by Datsik, Flux Pavillion, Bassnectar, and Mt. Eden as far back as late 2009. All this and he doesn't even like to be labeled as dubstep, and he only has one song that really is 100% dubstep ("Ruffneck (Flex)"). Also, he is apparently responsible for every dubstep Stupid Statement Dance Mix, though again those go back as far as early 2010. Also, generally one of the biggest victims of the "Bandwagon Hater"ever.
Signature Song: Either "Scary Monsters And Nice Sprites", "First Of The Year (Equinox)", or "Kill EVERYBODY".
His most well-known song in popular culture is probably his remix of "Cinema.". It doesn't help the fact that has been featured in the latest Forza Motorsport game, Forza Horizon.
Oh and did we count his appearance in the soundtrack of Ridge Racer Unbounded with "Kill EVERYBODY" and "Scary Monsters And Nice Sprites"?
Tear Jerker: "With You, Friends (Long Drive)." Especially if the rumors that it's about Skrillex's biological mother (he's adopted) are true. Though the vocals are pretty chopped up and distorted, what can be discerned is pretty heartbreaking:
"Please tell my mother I'm down on my knees And I really miss you mom I love you, you, you All I love, all my love"
