* SlidingScaleOfIdealismVsCynicism: While BatmanReturns and SweeneyTodd can be more on the cynical end, most of his films are pretty much on the idealistic end of the scale despite his dark and weird movies and characters.

Added DiffLines:

* PerkyGoth: While he may not be the TropeNamer, he is a stand out. He loves building his films around something in the gothic and the macabre, but Burton himself is a very peace-loving NiceGuy.

* TechnicianVersusPerformer: The performer. His films are more known for their style than their stories; they are there, but they tend to not be that refined or fleshed out.

* NightmareFace: Burton usually manages to sneak at least one into his movies somewhere. For example, Large Marge in ''Film/PeeWeesBigAdventure,'' the newscaster who takes Smilex in ''Film/{{Batman}},'' the witch in the forest in ''Film/SleepyHollow,'' Jack scaring Lock, Shock, and Barrel in ''WesternAnimation/TheNightmareBeforeChristmas,'' ''Film/{{Beetlejuice}},'' (many examples), and so on and so forth. Even in ''Film/CharlieAndTheChocolateFactory'' the young Wonka sports [[BracesOfOrthodonticOverkill a rather nightmarish set of braces.]]

Added DiffLines:

* SitcomArchNemesis: An extremely brief one-sided to with Creator/KevinSmith. Burton was indirectly responsible to getting Smith kicked off of the failed ''ComicBook/{{Superman}}'' reboot, ''Superman Lives''. A few years later, Smith half-jokingly accused Burton of ripping off one of his comic books for ''Film/{{Planet of the Apes|2001}}'', to which Burton gave the uncharacteristically nasty response of "Anyone who knows me knows I would never read anything written by Kevin Smith." Smith [[InsultBackfire put this quote on the back of his autobiography]].
