* SmallRoleBigImpact: Out of the nine principle characters, Pirelli has the smallest role by far. He is only in two scenes, and has 'The Contest' and the seconds long 'Pirelli's Death' as his songs (not including the Ballad of Sweeney Todd and it's reprises). However, his foppish personality, ridiculous accent, and outstanding tenor make him extremely memorable. On top of that, [[spoiler:he is the first in an extremely long line of Sweeney's victims. His corpse is also what gives Mrs. Lovett the idea to cook dead bodies into meat pies. His coin purse also ends up becoming a shockingly vital item later in the plot.]]

* EvenEvilHasLovedOnes: More-or-less adopts Toby [[spoiler:after Pirelli's death]] and genuinely grows to care about him. [[spoiler:[[SubvertedTrope But she doesn't think twice about killing him when it becomes necessary, even if she's not overly thrilled about it.]]]]
