* DepravedBisexual: Le Tenia rapes Alex, a very beautiful woman played by Monica Bellucci. He's later found in a gay sex club participating in an orgy. However, comments he makes during his attack coupled with the extreme level of violence ''after'' he's raped her suggest that degradation and sadism played more of a part than sexual attraction, so he might actually be a DepravedHomosexual who simply wanted to harm Alex in the most horrific way he could.

* DepravedHomosexual: One of the gay men at the S/M club tries to rape Marcus, and other men are shown ''cheering'' while Pierre beats the guy's face into pulp with a fire extinguisher. These scenes are the main reason why many critics view ''Irreversible'' as a homophobic movie.

* AssholeVictim: The man who they [[spoiler: mistake for Le Tenia]] and beat to death was just about to rape Marcus, so is hardly an innocent victim.

* DisproportionateRetribution: While a brutal revenge on Le Tenia may seem justified, [[spoiler: getting the wrong man is not]].

* BreakTheCutie: Quite the {{understatement}}. Given it's not as drawn out as most examples and only centers in one scene, but it fits here nonetheless.

* ExtremeMeleeRevenge: Tragically misdirected. Pierre beats another man to death with a fire extinguisher for allegedly having raped his girlfriend. It's like watching personified concentrated rage.



* NoHoldsBarredBeatdown:
** When Pierre beats another man to death with a fire extinguisher. It's like watching personified concentrated rage.
** Not to mention the beatdown that Alex gets from her rapist.

* DramaticIrony: ''Everything'' after the ending. And we mean ''everything''. With this film, Noe could've easily given us a light-hearted romcom-esque story that turned south intensely in the end, but by giving the film a reverse-chronological structure, the despair we get from seeing how the story ends first carries on into scenes that would've normally been light-hearted but are instead so much harder to watch because the characters are unaware of what will happen to them.



* HeroicBSOD: Marcus breaks down crying after seeing [[spoiler:a brutally beaten Alex being carried away on a stretcher]], and looks notably damaged when he is being questioned by a cop in the next (chronological) scene.
