* {{Badass}}: The droogs handle themselves very well in fights against rival bands, even in numerical inferiority, and Alex is able to easily dominate the rest of his gang into apparent submission.



* [[ForTheEvulz For a Bit of the Old Ultra-Violence]]: Alex, of course.

to:

* [[ForTheEvulz For ForTheEvulz: More like "For a Bit of the Old Ultra-Violence]]: Ultra-Violence". Alex, of course.



* KarmaHoudini: PlayedStraight [[ZigZaggingTrope and then lead into a]] DoubleSubversion. Alex gets away with much of what he does in the first part of the film. Then, he is arrested and is '[[MindRape rehabilitated]]' until he cannot defend himself, getting his ass kicked in the process. [[spoiler:In the end, he becomes cured, leaving him free to commit more atrocities.]]

* ButForMeItWasTuesday: Played with, initially inverted as Alex remembers the house but the writer doesn't recognize him because he wore a mask, but Frank realizes who his guest is when Alex carelessly begins to sing "Singing in the Rain," the song he sung while he assaulted Frank and raped his wife.
