* NoCelebritiesWereHarmed: Frank's appearance is very remniscent of rock star LouReed in the early seventies, when he associated with GlamRock stars such as DavidBowie and adopted a sexually ambigious, raunchy image. Just compare Frank to [[http://40.media.tumblr.com/tumblr_m3pug52yhP1qfme7lo1_1280.jpg this photo of Reed]]. And [[https://40.media.tumblr.com/a1cf9a0b6d4df74e926a16825354d1e1/tumblr_mvcu88OKac1qenetmo1_500.png this one]]. (Franks singing and other mannerisms aren't very Reed-like, though.)

Added DiffLines:

* ModestyBedsheet: [[spoiler:After she sleeps with Rocky]] upon Frank N. Furter's discovering them. {{Justified|Trope}} in that they were surrounded by people at the time.


Added DiffLines:

* LeaningOnTheFourthWall: Does this in the dining room scene when he says:
-->I knew he was in with a bad crowd, but it is even worse than I imagined! [[note]]WHO THE FUCK ARE YOU TALKING TO? WHO THE FUCK ARE ''WE'' TALKING TO?![[/note]]

* IfYouEverDoAnythingToHurtHer: ''FRAAAANK-FURT-EEEEER!''. Brad and Dr Scott say this to Frank when he's threatening Janet. A rare use of this line by two men who are not in any position to threaten Frank-n-Furter at all.



* IWantMyMommy: Brad in "The Floor Show": "It's beyond me/Help me, Mommy!"



* IfYouEverDoAnythingToHurtHer: ''FRAAAANK-FURT-EEEEER!''. Brad and Dr Scott say this to Frank when he's threatening Janet. A rare use of this line by two men who are not in any position to threaten Frank-n-Furter at all.


Added DiffLines:

* ItsAllAboutMe: It becomes extremely clear Frank is an attention whore who only cares about people if they A) pay attention to him, or B) are of some use to him. And even then... in the musical, when [[spoiler:Columbia takes the first anti-matter shot for Frank]]...
-->'''Frank-n-Furter''': You did that for me...?\\
[Columbia nods yes.]\\
'''Frank-n-Furter''': Stupid bitch. [[note]]Of course, this line can be performed a couple of different ways, either with cruelty ("You always were an idiot.") or pity ("You shouldn't have thrown your life away for me.")[[/note]]

* IAmSong[=/=]IWantSong: Sweet Transvestite can count for both. Frank's describing himself as a [[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin sweet transvestite]], yet he's also asking (or demanding because he never gave them the option) Brad and Janet to "stay for the night."



* ICanExplain: Frank says this right before singing his final song. Too bad Riff Raff and Magenta aren't convinced of his story. [[spoiler:They shoot him anyway.]]
** And "I'm Going Home" doesn't explain a damn thing.



* IncestSubtext: Riff Raff and Magenta give a strong impression of this.[[note]]Elbow sex! Elbow sex![[/note]]



* IncomingHam: "''You're'' lucky, ''he's'' lucky, ''I'm'' lucky, '''WE'RE ALL LUCKY!!!'''"[[note]]THE BANISTER'S LUCKY![[/note]]
* IncestSubtext: With Riff Raff.




to:

* IfYouEverDoAnythingToHurtHer: Sings this along with Brad while they're both paralysed so can't stop Frank anyway.

'''Riffraff''': "They didn't like me! They NEVER liked me!!

to:

* HerrDoctor: Dr. Scott.
--> "Go on, Dr. Scott. Or, should I say, [[TheVonTropeFamily Dr. Von Scott!"]][[note]]SIEG HEIL![[/note]]
* HistoricalInJoke: Check out "Operation Paperclip" on Wiki/{{Wikipedia}}. [[note]]Almost immediately after Goebbels surrendered to the Russian Army, the US and Soviet governments began smuggling Nazi scientists out of the country for their knowledge about rocketry and launched missile weapons. Werner von Braun is one of the most famous examples. The American plan to recruit former Nazi scientists was called [[AC:Operation Paperclip]]. This is why Frank calls Dr. Scott out on his accent.[[/note]]

* {{Antimatter}}: What his RayGun fires.

to:

* {{Antimatter}}: What his His RayGun fires.fires a laser! Made of pure antimatter![[note]]Well then it's not really a laser, is it?/OUR PHYSICS SUCK![[/note]]
** Fun fact: the idea of an antimatter laser is completely redundant because photons are their own antiparticles. [[note]]So you mean, it doesn't matter?[[/note]]


Added DiffLines:

* GiveMyRegardsInTheNextWorld: Riff Raff tells Dr. Frank N. Furter [[spoiler:before he kills him]], "Say goodbye to all of this[[note]]GOODBYE, ALL OF THIS![[/note]]...and hello[[note]]HELLO...[[/note]] to oblivion.[[note]]HI, OBLIVION! HOW'S THE WIFE AND KIDS?[[/note]]"
