* BreakingSpeech: Hannibal gives one to Will over the phone, telling him that GodIsEvil and that what bothered him about killing Garret Jacob Hobbes (the first SerialKiller Graham caught) was that [[EvilFeelsGood he secretly enjoyed it]].



* HannibalLecture: The man himself gives one to Will over the phone, telling him that GodIsEvil and EvilIsCool, and that what bothered him about killing Garret Jacob Hobbes (the first SerialKiller Graham caught) was that [[EvilFeelsGood he secretly enjoyed it]].
** This particular HannibalLecture was repeated ''ad vertabim'' in ''Series/{{Hannibal}}'' the series (it does not appear in the original novel), albeit in a very different context as in that case Graham had yet to realize that Lecter was a killer.
** In his [[https://youtu.be/djAhwNzf8Qs first scene]] he gives Will a NotSoDifferent speech; since this is the first Hannibal film and is taken directly from the novel (unlike the aforemention "killing is good" speech), this film features the ''original'' HannibalLecture.

* ViewersAreMorons: It's called ''Manhunter'' because the producers thought ''Red Dragon'' sounded too much like a kung fu flick.

* ImmediateSelfContradiction: Lektor scoffs that appealing to his intellectual vanity won't work, but once Will tells him Dr. Bloom is working on the case and "he's the best", Lektor immediately acquiesces to Will's demands.

* AssholeVictim: {{Deconstructed}} by Lektor on Freddy Lounds, practically giggling that Will did a good job of MakeItLookLikeAnAccident by setting him up as a target for Dolarhyde. Will lamely refutes this, but it's clear he wonders if he did it subconsciously.

* CentralTheme: The entire film is about vision and color. For example, notice the background colors of the opening credits, saturated and overexposed. Lektor's prison is completely white, which has a negative psychological effect on Will (who calms down when staring at the green grass.) Of course, Dolarhyde's ''job'' is color correction.

* DepravedBisexual: Hinted at, but debatable. After getting high, he kisses Freddy Lounds passionately [[spoiler: before biting off his nose and setting him on fire.]]
