  • Cowboy BeBop at His Computer: Not applicable to the band themselves, but to the media. They've been accused of being Nazis. They're anything but. Their frequent categorisation as a Viking metal band may also count, since they don't have any lyrics about Vikings (although some people would argue that Viking metal is a sound rather than a lyrical stance). They also had this happen to them with they toured with the band Loitis (who's labeled as far-right due to their political stances) and the band refused to back down from said tour. This bit them in the butt when they were listed (along with other acts like Sodom) at Steelfest, who does sign up heavy far-right bands. After endless complaining, the band dropped themselves from the festival, admitting they were more or less tired of the constant allegations.

  • Doing It for the Art: The band don't seem to mind the limited commercial potential of singing all their material in Finnish, releasing half-hour compositions, and so on.
  • Limited Special Collector's Ultimate Edition: Heritage 1995-2008: The Collected Works.
  • Missing Episode: Until the release of the box set, Thorns of Ice and Promo were not publicly available. Thorns of Ice however had a legitimate reason however: the first half ended up being erased during the mastering, leaving only a small fraction of it existing. To make it worse, the band said it was the best half too.
