Added DiffLines:

* AsideGlance: While singing "Special To Me", Phoenix repeatedly stares into the camera, holding her gaze even when turning away. One almost gets the feeling she's flirting with it.


Added DiffLines:

* AttemptedRape: Philbin to Phoenix during her "audition." Thankfully, she gets away.

Added DiffLines:

** The Phantom's mask is also reminiscent of a stylized Owl, or similar Bird of Prey, making the Love Triangle very avian themed.

Added DiffLines:

* AnimalMotifs: Swan is as regal and luxurious as the implicit cultural implications given by his name. As well as resembling an inversion of the ugly duckling tale seeing as he becomes more and more monstrous, from a personality perspective, as the movie goes on. Swans are also known to be much more vicious than their appearance lets on.


Added DiffLines:

* AnimalMotifs: Beef's name stands out among these; [[spoiler:he's the only one named after a dead animal and the first one to die.]]

Added DiffLines:

* AnimalMotifs: Winslow Leach's name is ironic considering that the success of the Paradise is dependent on Swan leeching from Leach's work.


Added DiffLines:

* AnimalMotifs: Phoenix's name highlights her character arc. This comes to the fore with [[spoiler:Beef being burnt to a crisp before she symbolically rises from the ashes of his failure. She's also the only named character who survives, mirroring the phoenix's status as immortal]].

Added DiffLines:

* AmbidextrousSprite: Winslow loses his right eye in the record-press accident that disfigures him, and the right eye on his Phantom mask is covered with smoked glass while his eye is often pointedly shown through the left eyehole. This is consistent in the movie itself, but promotional materials often show the Phantom glaring at the viewer through the right eye-hole in his mask.
* AndIMustScream: Swan's would-be fate for Winslow. He bricks Winslow into his tiny basement studio and because Winslow signed the contract and cannot die he would be trapped there forever.

Added DiffLines:

* AffablyEvil: Swan, fitting his name and role as being the head of a Record Company that destroys everyone it touches.

Added DiffLines:

* DarthVaderClone: Despite this movie coming out four years before ''Film/ANewHope'', The Phantom fits this trope perfectly, with black costume, helmet and heavy breathing.
