* OneOfUs: Say what you will about Varg, but he's ''definitely'' a case of this. His band's name comes from Tolkien; he's made quite a few other Tolkien references throughout his career; his first two full-length albums' covers are explicitly inspired by TabletopGame/DungeonsAndDragons; the list goes on.

* WhatCouldHaveBeen: Around the time of recording the ''Aske'' EP, Varg condsidered playing some gigs with Burzum, so he hired [[Music/{{Emperor}} Samoth]] on bass and Erik Lancelot on drums. However, he quickly dismissed this idea and decided that he didn't really need other musicians (although Samoth played bass on two songs from the aforementioned EP).

Given [[MurderIsTheBestSolution how his other attempt]] at playing in [[Music/{{Mayhem}} a band]] with other people went, however, this might have been for the best.


* OneOfUs: Vikernes's pseudonym, Count Grishnackh, comes from a character in ''Literature/TheTwoTowers''. The first band he played in was called Uruk-Hai. There's an instrumental piece on his first album called "The Crying Orc". He met many of the individuals that would make up the Norwegian black metal scene through their shared fondness for spirited {{LARP}}ing. Hell, even the name of the band means "darkness" in the Black Speech. Need we say more?
** He's so nerdy that he even published his own TabletopRPG: ''[=MyFaRoG=]'' ([[FunWithAcronyms short for]] '''My'''thic '''Fa'''ntasy '''Ro'''leplaying '''G'''ame). Official site [[http://myfarog.org/ here]].


* CreatorBacklash: Hates the modern BlackMetal scene and has apparently claimed that he's going to stop making metal for good. Time will tell if he keeps his word.
