* [[BunnyEarsLawyer Bunny Ears Scientist]]: Dr. Sebastian Caine. His employers tolerate his eccentricities because he was remarkably talented, though when Caine failed to announce his breakthrough (after nearly a year of no progress), they warn him that should he fail to come up with results shortly, he will be fired.

Added DiffLines:

* ImStandingRightHere: Inverted. Caine's coworkers are finishing lunch and chatting about what they'd do if they were invisible (or what they think Sebastian Caine would do), complete with misgivings about the project, this experiment, and so on. After they've all left, one empty chair turns and rolls back from the table, [[ParanoiaFuel exactly as if, say, an invisible man had just stood up from it.]]

Added DiffLines:

* SanitySlippage: Caine was an egomaniac to begin with, who elected to try the serum out himself for nebulous reasons, but mostly because he thought it would be fun. After the reversion serum doesn't work, he's stuck being invisible, and ever-more difficult experiments are attempted to revert him. Finally, he goes completely nuts, indulging in all his darkest impulses. Lampshaded by Matt.
-->'''Matt''': Was it the serum that fucked you up, or was it the power?

* WhatHappenedToTheMouse: Of the "most likely intentional for the sake of horror" variety-the woman who Caine raped is never seen or really mentioned again. The remainder of Caine's descent into madness can be viewed in different ways, based on whether or not he killed her (there's little evidence either way). Although, a draft of the script reveals that the woman was only raped.

* AGodAmI: Sebastian goes as far as saying "How many times I have to tell you, Frank? You're not God. *I* am." Linda calls this back twice ("You think you're God? I'll show you God!" and "Not God. Not anymore.").

Added DiffLines:

* FanDisservice: We do get to see Sarah's exposed breasts, but given that it's when Caine is molesting her while she's asleep, its deeply disturbing.

* RapeAsDrama: Sebastian rapes a woman he spies on while invisible, and sucks on Sarah's nipples while she's asleep in her chair (making her think it was just an {{erotic dream}} at first).

* {{Foreshadowing}}: The opening scene actually hints to test subjects of the invisibility serum developing murderous instincts, as we see a rat on whom the serum was tested devour a normal one with only its bloody teeth showing.
