* SoftGlass: An inversion; Tracy catapults himself through a skylight onto a roof, going through the glass head-first. Also played straight when he initially jumps through the other skylight into a room. Both times, he walks away without a scratch.

* HeyItsThatGuy: On two levels: Huge stars like Dustin Hoffman and Al Pacino have heavy makeup, sometimes to the point of being unrecognizable, while the rest of the cast is filled out with veteran character actors.

Added DiffLines:

* NoIndoorVoice: Big Boy practically ''defines'' this trope.


Added DiffLines:

* TheReasonYouSuchSpeech: When things go south for his criminal empire, Big Boy delivers a delightfully over-the-top one to his goons for their inability to deal with Tracy.

One of the striking features of the film was its attempt to replicate, in live action, the flat colors and limited palette of the comic strip. Every yellow thing was the same bright yellow as Dick Tracy's trademark outfit, every blue thing was the same blue, every red thing the same red, and so on. And unlike, say, ''Film/SinCity'', which did it with computer tinting, ''Dick Tracy'' did it by actually painting and dying the physical objects those colours.%%It feels like there ought to be a trope that covers this, but if so I haven't found it.

* WouldHitAGirl: Big Boy has no problem playing this one straight, smacking Breathless Mahoney and threatening to basically rearrange her face when she steps out of line at one point.
