* HollywoodLaw: The only scene of Matt actually acting as a lawyer that made it to the theatrical cut is of him seemingly seeking a conviction for a rape suspect. The catch? Matt Murdock is a defense attorney, a fact emphasized by the voluminous material that was restored in the director's cut. In real life, you ''may'' see a victim's advocate making submissions at sentencing in many jurisdictions, there's no way in hell that Matt would have been making arguments in court and getting annoyed that the defendant was acquitted. He could have been suing the guy in tort for the rape, but even in that case he still wouldn't be on the defense side of things.

-->'''Kingpin''': *seeing two of his guards dead* "Was that ''really'' necessary?"
-->'''Bullseye''': "Necessary? No...but it was ''fun''."

* DidYouActuallyBelieve: Fallon says this to Matt's father, saying that Jack only won because his opponents threw their fights.
-->'''Fallon''': Did you really think you won all those fights on your own? You're forty-two years old! Miller, Mack, Bendis, they're all my fighters... just like you. And now it's your turn to take a fall. [[ImpliedDeathThreat Think about]] [[WouldHurtAChild your boy]], Jack. I'm sure you'll do the right thing.



* RealityEnsues: Much of the beginning of the film delves into how a superhero would probably live in real life; Matt has scars all over his body, is on pain medication, his powers make sleeping difficult, and he has a shambled ruin of a personal life. Special mention is made in the commentary and Matt is a man "who really doesn't have long to live" if his vigilante activities keep up they way they do.

* SoftGlass: Averted. After being thrown through an already cracked window, Bullseye lands on a windshield which doesn't break. Later on, the massively built Kingpin throws Matt full force at a window which only cracks but doesn't break.

* ArmorPiercingResponse: When Matt rants to the priest about his identity as Daredevil and asks if justice is a sin, he's clearly unprepared for the answer of "''Vengeance is!''"

* AdaptationalPersonalityChange: Foggy Nelson, while still a good guy, is prone to greed and pettiness. Partially justified as their law firm is struggling money since Matt refuses to represent wealthy (but guilty) clients.



** Stan Lee's cameo has him be saved from getting hit by a car by young Matt. In the comics, Matt's blindness was the result of saving a blind old man from being run over by the truck carrying the chemicals.

Added DiffLines:

* NoSenseOfPersonalSpace: During their battle, Bullseye is continually trying to get close to Elektra. As he starts winning the fight, Bullseye grabs Elektra by the neck and lifts her up. He then decides to kiss her. Not reciprocating the idea, Elektra pushes him away and pulls her head away whenever he gets close. Regardless, Bullseye remains far too close for her comfort as he keeps their faces close to enough to almost kiss her.


Added DiffLines:

* SexIsViolence: Elektra and Bullseye seem to have a thing for people who can match them in a fight. During her sparring match with Matt, when Elektra is told not to hold back, she smiles and starts to enjoy the fight. Bullseye, in a more violent match with Elektra, is clearly smiling the entire time as though aroused by her fighting prowess. Unlike with Matt, Elektra isn't enjoying the match at all.

Added DiffLines:

* DarkIsNotEvil: Daredevil, despite his name and dark red outfit, is the hero of the story. Elektra herself wore black in her training scene and wears black leather in her fights with Daredevil and Bullseye, but she isn't a villainess.

Added DiffLines:

* InLoveWithTheMark: Dowplayed and then defied. Bullseye is physically attracted to Elektra but it doesn't stop him from doing his duty of [[spoiler:killing her]].

* RaceLift: Completely justified as MichaelClarkeDuncan is about [[PragmaticAdaptation as commanding an acting presence as can be while fitting the required size and stature of Kingpin.]] Interestingly, the Kingpin was originally envisioned as black when conceived for the comics, but at the time Marvel worried that it would be considered racist to make him black.
