** "[[MortalKombat GET OVER HERE!]]"

to:

** "[[MortalKombat GET OVER HERE!]]"HERE!]]". This one is funny for being a recursive ShoutOut. Scorpion's FlamingSkull and [[BuffySpeak spear-chain-whip-thing]] were confirmed to be shout-outs to Ghost Rider. So we have Ghost Rider making a ShoutOut to character who is a ShoutOut to Ghost Rider.

* SeparatedAtBirthCasting: It's no coincidence that Raquel Alessi got cast as a young EvaMendes. She more than looks the part.

* GoodIsDumb: Inverted, bigtime. TWICE.
** Blackheart - [[NiceJobFixingItVillain Way to set yourself up with a fatal weakness]]:
--->'''Ghost Rider:''' Look into my eyes.
--->'''Blackheart:''' [screams, wails, then laughs] Your Penance Stare won't work on me. I have no soul to burn.
--->'''Johnny Blaze:''' [after Blackheart has assumed the souls of San Venganza] How does it feel to have all that evil inside of you? All their power?
--->'''Ghost Rider:''' All their souls? A thousand souls to burn. '''''[[HoistByHisOwnPetard LOOK INTO MY EYES.]]'''''
** Really, Mephistopheles -- you kill the guy's father, force him to abandon his LoveInterest, and then make Johnny [[StoodUp stand her up]] when he reunites with her, and you're ''surprised'' that Johnny can control the power of the Ghost Rider, doesn't have to give it back after fulfilling the terms of the contract, and has sworn to fight your evil influence wherever he finds it?

Despite the critical consensus, the film managed to do well at the box office. A not-quite-sequel/not-quite-reboot was released in 2012, subtitled ''[[Film/GhostRiderSpiritOfVengeance Spirit of Vengeance]]'', which featured Creator/IdrisElba in a supporting role and was helmed by Neveldine/Taylor, the guys behind the ''Film/{{Crank}}'' films and ''Film/{{Gamer}}''.

* BullyingADragon: The prisoners should have realized that picking a fight with the Ghost Rider while he's in jail cell is a bad idea.

* MagicAIsMagicA: The 'At night in the presence of evil' rule for Johnny's transformation is adhered to begin with, and the fact he can't transform while in direct sunlight is made a critical part of the final battle. However, Johnny and the gravekeeper transform despite the fact that there's no evil around, basically [[RuleOfCool so we can see two Ghost Riders riding together]]. Later, Johnny rides through a swamp, at night, with a demon nearby and doesn't transform until it's [[RuleOfDrama dramatically appropriate]]. In the final moments of the film Johnny [[RuleOfCool rides into the camera and transforms]] despite the fact that it's dusk and he's not near any evil beings. [[FridgeBrilliance Though the latter one may be due to him now being free of his contract.]] Much earlier in the film, Johnny is shown trying to take control of the forces possessing him and has some success.

* DisproportionateRetribution: Averted. By definition, the retribution the Penance Stare inflicts is ''precisely'' proportionate to the subject's crimes.
