* SongAssociation: If you were to play "You'll Be Under My Wheels" from ''Always Outnumbered, Never Outgunned'' in a crowd, there's a 33/33/34 chance that anyone that recognizes it will know it from either ''Film/TheFastAndTheFuriousTokyoDrift'' or ''VideoGame/NeedForSpeedMostWanted''.


** SugarWiki/HeartwarmingMoments: While it obviously doesn't change the fact that Keits gone, or make it okay, the sheer number of fan tributes for him is staggering, and they're still coming in. Thousands of fans attended his funeral procession, and there have been several really good graffiti tributes to him in his local town.

** “Smack My Bitch Up” is significantly better known than [[https://youtu.be/8NSf1A5RuP4 Give The Drummer Some]], the song by [[Music/KoolKeith Ultramagnetic MC's]] that the eponymous refrain is sampled from.

* EarWorm: The main riff from "Invaders Must Die" is almost ''unbelievably'' catchy. It's no surprise the song was used for 3 trailers in the space of only about a year (''Film/ScottPilgrimVsTheWorld'', ''VideoGame/DukeNukemForever'' and the multiplayer trailer for ''[[VideoGame/{{Crysis}} Crysis 2]]'').
** "Chase the Devil" by Max Romeo from his album ''Music/WarInaBabylon'' sampled in "Out of Space", particularly when you consider how often it's repeated.
** Also, "Stand Up". Seriously.
** Pretty much everything about "Wind It Up", from the piano riff, to the leads, to the reggae sample (yes, again).
** "Firestarter" of course belongs here.
** "Warrior's Dance".

* CompleteMonster: [[SerialKiller Edward Scarka]] was a depraved murderer who killed many women, taking their hands as [[CreepySouvenir trophies]]. Upon the escape of his final victim, Scarka was killed by the police, but his soul [[DemonicPossession possesses a young boy]] named Miles Blume. Slowly taking over, Scarka [[BadPeopleAbuseAnimals kills the family dog]], completely erases Miles's soul from the body, and stabs Miles's father to send him into a coma. Hunting down his one escaped victim Margaret, Scarka butchers her and plays innocent so Miles's mother Sarah will be shot by a good Samaritan, [[TheBadGuyWins ending]] as Scarka continues to behave as a young boy, intending to continue his killing spree where none will ever suspect him.
* IdiotPlot: You got a serial killer’s soul in a little boy’s body, and you think that bringing him to kill his intended target will fulfill his UnfinishedBusiness, except that serial killers will just continue killing people.

Added DiffLines:

* IAmTheBand: Despite first impressions, not Keith, who only actually sings on one of the first 4 albums. Until '''The Day Is My Enemy''' every album was produced by Liam alone with barely any input from Keith or Maxim except when they needed to sing.


* BrokenBase: "Need [=Some1=]" from the ''No Tourists'' album. Was it one of the best Prodigy releases as it has the vibe from ''Music For The Jilted Generation''? Or was it one of the worst as it sounds like it was made by fans?

* CriticalDissonance: Critics gave a very cold reception to "Baby's Got A Temper" and ''Always Outnumbered, Never Outgunned''. Both works were very popular, both in sales and in the fanbase.

* GrowingTheBeard: ''Music For The Jilted Generation'' is a major 180 from the bright, giddy sounds of ''Experience.'' Sometimes it's hard to believe it's the same group.
