** It also probably wasn't a good idea to get him started on [[Music/DefLeppard Viv Campbell]].

* NamesTheSame: When a Dutch rapper named Dio (real name Diorno Braaf) headlined the Zomerpop music festival, Ronnie James Dio's management issued a statement saying that it was not the metal band. "It has come to our attention that a band calling themselves DIO are advertised in Pollstar under Ronnie James Dio as playing Zomerpop festival in Netherlands on Sept 5/6."

* AuthorExistenceFailure: Unfortunately. The sadness factor of Dio's death is brought UpToEleven when you discover that just about 12 hours before he ''did'' die, a rumor got out that he was gone. His wife said he was hanging in there - not doing good, but alive. This was at about 3:00 AM, May 16th. Flash forward 4 hours, 45 minutes...

** He was originally cast to play Doviculus in BrutalLegend, but the role later went to Creator/TimCurry. Rumors speculated that the reason for Dio's departure from the project was because of behind the scenes fighting with Ozzy Osbourne (who did lend his voice to the game), but Tim Schafer set the story straight by saying that, as Doviculus changed over the course of development, Curry simply fit the role better than Dio (citing Curry's role in the film ''Film/{{Legend 1985}}'' as a good example of why). Still feels like a NegatedMomentOfAwesome to not have Dio involved in the project though, considering that lending his voice to a game that celebrates everything heavy metal would have been a fitting send off.

* BlackSheepHit: "Rainbow in the Dark" is one of his most well-known solo songs, but after recording it, Dio thought that it sounded too "pop", and would have destroyed the tape, if the other band members had not talked him out of it. He later warmed a bit up to the song, eventually using it as one of his signature songs.
* CreativeDifferences: His animosity towards Ritchie Blackmore was ''legendary'' due to their highly adversarial relationship while Dio was in Music/{{Rainbow}}.
