  • Alternate Character Interpretation: Bizzy has either become enlightened and more of a deep introspective artisan, or a self indulgent, pretentious, narcissistic jack ass who almost derailed the group.
  • Awesome Moments: Strength & Loyalty album. Went gold when no other rappers from their era was going gold. Not only that but with just 3/5 of the group no less.
  • Awesome Music: The Eternal album universally speaking. For the core fanbase it also includes The Art Of War.
  • Base Breaker: Bizzy Bone. And later on Krayzie as well after people started to blame him for the artistic direction of the group, for better or for worse.
  • Broken Base: And how!! Read the entry for an example.
  • Contractual Purity: After "Tha Crossroads", much to the chagrin of fans that prefer their darker, harder stuff.
  • Ensemble Darkhorse: There are two ways of looking at Krayzie and Bizzy's standout popularity, but which is the more correct mode is highly debatable. Either they're the darkhorses in the context of the group's popularity, or, in the context of their own popularity. Some Take a Third Option and see Flesh as the REAL darkhorse.
    • The group itself could qualify in the context of the Hip-Hop scene. Their success came out of nowhere, nobody expected them to last as long as they did, and this is in spite of their lack of respect from the industry.
  • Epileptic Trees: Fan theories about the group's misfortunes being linked to their obsession with the Ouija board, the Deal with the Devil being among these things.
    • Not to mention the speculation that they are cursed, because a lot of their collaboration partners are dead.
      • Their mentor Eazy-E (Layzie has openly accused this of being the product of an evil conspiracy, and not without good questions.)
      • 2Pac
      • Notorious B.I.G.
      • Big Punisher
      • Mariah Carey's sanity circa 2002/2003
  • Fan Haters: Mostly from embittered dissenters…
  • Fan Myopia: It goes both ways actually…if that's even possible.
  • Faux Symbolism
  • First Installment Wins: Creepin On Ah Come Up
  • Growing the Beard: As far as lyrics and subject matter, although there are some fans who could care less about this and would rather have the simplistic violent dark lyrics about murder.
  • Heartwarming Moments: Most of the time when a hip hop artist samples an older artist's work from a different genre, the most acknowledgement that original artist gets is liner note credit. When they samples Phil Collins' "Take Me Home" chorus and instrumental for their introspective song "Home", they decided to actually fly to where he was staying in Switzerland in order to feature him in the music video. Despite taking a hit when VH1 treated it as a Big Lipped Alligator Moment, the song was popular enough in the United Kingdom and niche circles elsewhere that they decided to make Collins an honorary Bone Thug member under the name "Chrome Bone".
  • Internet Backdraft: Anything dealing with Krayzie vs. Bizzy, or Bone vs. Bizzy.
  • Magnum Opus: East. 1999 Eternal, some say The Art Of War.
  • Memetic Mutation: Layzie Bone's "Look what the wind blew in" Lyric became this as he recycles the verse a lot. Wish Bone's solo album that's always "Coming Soon", and the fat jokes. The Mutations have got on some fans nerves.
  • Newbie Boom: Post-"Tha Crossroads", and probably again after "I Tried".
  • Nightmare Fuel: A lot of their earlier material from Faces of Death up to The Art Of War. Specifically songs like the "Mr. Ouija" tracks, "Mo'Murder", "Hell Sent", "Sons of Assassins", etc…
  • Sophomore Slump: Gloriously annihilated!!
  • Tear Jerker: "Tha Crossroads", made more powerful when watching the music video.
  • The Law of Fan Jackassery: Or ex-fans in some cases.
  • They Changed It, Now It Sucks: This can be dissected into a trope entry of its own, but to summarize:
    • Primarily after they started to shy away from darker occult themes, tone, and beats.
    • When they started infusing more R&B.
    • Using standard song structures like verse choruses verse. When they use to trade back to back interwoven verses then followed by a chorus (if there is a chorus).
    • Being more overt with the religious/spiritual symbolism. Particularly Bizzy, Krayzie is now starting to get this as well.
    • Moving further away from their old producers.
  • Tough Act to Follow: Eternal (and to a VERY slight lesser degree Art Of War).
  • Vindicated by History: After the absolute failure and implosion of The World's Enemy album fans are starting to appreciate Strength & Loyalty more.
  • What Do You Mean It's Not Didactic?
