* LeaningOnTheFourthWall: The final note of the musical score, played just as the laboratory explodes, is a very powerful dissonant chord, made to be so loud that it would slightly shake the seats in the movie theater. Whale came up with this idea, and meant for it to suggest that the explosion was so massive that it even affected the real world. This element is, unfortunately, mostly lost when watching it on home video.

* ScienceIsBad: Partially subverted. The reformed Dr. Frankenstein is forced by evil MadScientist Dr. Pretorius to return to his old ways. The twist: Early on, Pretorius shows us his collection of tiny humans in glass jars, practically announcing that he's Mephistopheles. To this, Frankenstein replies, horrified, "This isn't science!" Here, sane Science Is Good, and has standards, but Black Magic Is Bad.

* FearOfThunder: Mary Shelley as said by Lord Byron:
--> '''Byron''': Astonishing creature.
--> '''Mary''': I, Lord Byron?
--> '''Byron''': Frightened of thunder, fearful of the dark, and yet you have written a tale that sent my blood into icy creeps.

* RevisedEnding: The well-known goof of Henry being present as the tower explodes was a simple matter of studio interference and budget constraints. As originally shot, Henry was to die at the end along with Pretorius, the monster, and the bride. But Universal demanded a happy ending, so Whale reshot the ending to show Henry escaping with Elizabeth. Notice that the contradictory scene where Henry is briefly seen is the one with the explosions and pyrotechnics going off. This was an expensive scene to shoot, and Whale wasn't given an adequate budget to reshoot it, so the original shot was retained.

The Bride of Frankenstein, despite her rather short screen time, is one of the eight official Universal Monsters alongside her "husband".

* DenserAndWackier: ''Bride Of Frankenstein'' might very well be the first self-aware horror film, and while it's still a dark film with deep themes and genuine terror, it also works as a black comedy. This was a huge change of pace from the original ''Film/{{Frankenstein|1931}}'', which was straight horror. Director James Whale purposefully wanted to give the sequel a different tone to stand on it's own.
