Added DiffLines:

* FanNickname: "Pink Spider," bestowed on hide by [[Music/YoshikiHayashi Yoshiki]].


** Sometimes it was blonde with a pink or red streak in the early days of the band. Which could be confusing to n00b fans seeing a redhead... and therefore confusing hide and [[TomoakiIshizuka Pata]], who had *entirely* red hair off and on from around 1989 to 1991.

* CreatorBreakdown: One that, in retrospect, seems horrifically, blindingly obvious, but that seemingly either went ignored by most of the people around him, or that concerned them but they had no way to act upon their fears. At the point of [[http://xjapantranslations.wordpress.com/2014/01/03/arena-37c-aug-1994-be-friends-with-alcohol/ this interview with Arena 37C magazine]] in 1994, he was a ''textbook'' case of alcoholism (If you doubt this, run any alcohol screening test as if you were him, with the information he freely divulged in said interview. You ''will'' get the result of severe, life-threatening alcoholism), as well as showing symptoms of severe Bipolar 1 mania and depression which he even referenced in several of his songs and in other interviews. [[Music/YoshikiHayashi Yoshiki]] mentioned hide's bulimia in his own autobiography - that hide often vomited when he felt that he'd eaten too much, and he'd often find himself holding hide's hair out of his face as he purged. That said, all or most of the warning signs were dismissed by almost everyone, and those who were close enough to know something was wrong at the time (specifically Yoshiki and Pata) likely weren't educated enough in mental health to know that they were seeing serious, horrific problems unfold before their eyes.

Added DiffLines:

* NoBudget: The ''Misery'' PV, unless it was StylisticSuck. The film quality is awful even for the mid 1990s.

Added DiffLines:

* OutlivedItsCreator: Zilch is a straight example (it outlived both hide and Paul Raven), but a more meta example would be pretty much all of hide's career and artistic output. As an example, the "Pink Spider" musical just opened in Japan...
** VisualKei itself is a straight example, as he was one of the predominant influences in ''many'' parts still existent in VisualKei aside from the direct cloning attempts: he was the one who pioneered GenreRoulette and NeoclassicalPunkZydecoRockabilly as essential parts of a VK band repertoire, he (and COLOR) were the first to introduce the idea of hair colors other than black, brown, or blonde along with the over the top styles, why lead guitarist is such an important role in VK (as opposed to Western rock where it's usually vocalist), (along with X Japan itself) the idea of making PerformanceVideos or promotional videos art pieces themselves. Even artists who aren't directly or intentionally cloning him have drawn much from his influence on the scene.

Added DiffLines:

* AuthorExistenceFailure: 1964-1998. Probably one of the most notable and tragic examples in recent memory. When hide died, he had not yet finished his third album, ''Ja, Zoo'', and many of his singles and other works hadn't been finished or released yet.

* DyeHard: hide's hair is either red or pink.

* FountainOfExpies: So, so, SO many in VisualKei. Probably, in one aspect or another, the most imitated artist in Visual Kei.
* TheRedStapler: Fernandes guitars (pretty much every one of his guitars was a Fernandes), Necromance (a shop in Los Angeles where he tended to buy jewelry and magickal items), and Mild Seven cigarettes.
