Aside from its progressive storytelling, it is also known for being heavily [[LostEpisode fragmented]], the results of both heavy Bowdlerization in its trip to foreign markets, and of poor preservation techniques back in the '30s (plus a little thing called UsefulNotes/WorldWarII).

Added DiffLines:

* LoudnessWar: Moroder's version, which served as the test run for the HPS-4000 cinema sound system, comparable to IMAX in terms of its acoustic power. The songs heard in the film are mixed far louder and with more dynamic range than they are on the soundtrack album.

* ''Before Tomorrowland'', a prequel novel to Disney's ''Film/{{Tomorrowland}}'' film features a roboticist villain named after Rotwang, though in-universe, Fritz Lang named the character after him, having once been colleagues within the Plus Ultra organization.

* TheConstant: Rotwang's house is [[GeniusLoci beyond ancient]], and sticks out like a sore thumb wedged in amongst the skyscrapers. It also has a secret door leading to [[BeneathTheEarth The Catacombs]].

* {{Gonk}}: In a film where everyone looks uniform, Rotwang- the MadScientist with fuzzy hair, bulging eyes, and a hunchback figure- really stands out.

** The workers also do many stupid things in the third act. They completely fail to realise that thier leader is clearly NotHerself, (made worse by the fact that Freder - who, at this point, has met her a total number of twice - realises it almost immediatly,) they forget about their children and leave them behind in their city, (even though they were specifically instructed to bring their sons along,) and they destroy huge machines without thinking about the consequenses, (which even Grot calls them out on). This can, however, be somewhat justified by Robot-Maria being TheCorruptor, and intending to cause havoc through the workers ("Let's watch the world go to the Devil!").
* IHaveYouNowMyPretty: Every scene between Rotwang and Maria. ''Especially'' the one before the transformation sequence. It doesn't help that the next time we see them, Maria is naked, unconsious and strapped to a table.

* MobileMaze: Rotwang's house. The doors can be completely sealed at a whim, which he uses against Freder and Maria at different points.
* MohsScaleOfViolenceHardness: It rates 2, due to a few acts of fatal violence, although it's all bloodless (except for a couple minor nicks and scratches).

** Subverted in the 2010 version, where it'ss clear that he doesn't mind his robot being used for unethical means. He just doesn't want Joh Fredersen to take her away from him.
