  • Contractual Purity: Averted and Played Straight at the same time. Yoshiki is one of the few people in the Japanese music scene that can do almost whatever he wants either artistically or in his personal life and get away with it, if not cheered on for it, which should give him ultimate creative freedom for Violet UK. However, the bread and butter of current Violet UK work seems to be for commercials and films, both of which have at least some limits (e.g. more instrumentals, no BDSM) and which force him to maintain a better reputation (and to overcome the reputation of being a procrastinating perfectionist that will happily run a project way over time and over budget to get it right.)

  • Development Hell: Violet UK has existed in some form since 2000 but in a case of a Long Runner that produces very little output, has only had a few songs (most of which were made for films or commercials or the like) and appearances at X Japan concerts as mostly a fashion show set to some background electronic/instrumental music, and while an album has been promised since 2007 or so, it never comes into existence. Most of this is due to Yoshiki's perfectionism as an artist.
  • Trolling Creator: Some people suspect Yoshiki and the entire project to be this due to its never seeming to get out of Development Hell.
