* OOCIsSeriousBusiness: Zidler almost exclusively addresses Satine by various endearments such as "Cherub" or "My Little Strawberry". The first time he addresses her by her actual name, it is to say, "You're dying, Satine!"

* WorldHalfEmpty[=/=]WorldHalfFull: Aside from being an example of MoodWhiplash and FisherKingdom, the contrast between the opening of the movie and the flashback illustrates these tropes. First the audience is shown Montmarte as a bleak and desolate place, with its inhabitants doped up on absinthe and various other drugs, while a priest stands outside the entrance warning the viewer not to enter "this village of sin." Then when everything flips to the colorful, happy, lively Montmartre, some of the same characters are seen again dancing, singing, and playing music. An implication that can be drawn from this is that neither view is completely correct by itself, that the real Montmartre was a mix of the two, or at least depended on point of view and one's experiences there.

* LargeHam: The movie is [[WorldOfHam (also) an endless ham parade]], but Jim Broadbent and Richard Roxburgh take the whole cake. They even ''[[HamToHamCombat fight]]'' over it during the "Like A Virgin" number.

* AllThereInTheManual: Each of the courtesans at the Moulin Rouge has a specific name, along with a costume that reflects that name. Examples include French Maid, Petite Princess (a dwarf), Madame Fromage (a BigBeautifulWoman in clothing that suggests desserts), Travesty (which anyone who listens to [[Creator/EddieIzzard Eddie Izzard]] will know is French for "transvestite", who wears a man's suit and top hat on the top of her body, and a can-can dress on the bottom), and Pearly Queen (who wears various expensive-looking items, such as furs and pearls).

* ArtisticLicenceBiology: [[spoiler: Someone suffering from the final stages of consumption would ''not'' be in any condition to sing, let alone be able to reach the high notes Satine does at the end.]]
** Which is consistent with the source material; much literature and theatre of the period inflicted their heroines with Tuberculosis, but reinterpreted said heroines' wasting sickness to "becomes attractively pale, thin and delicate-looking".

* BreakHisHeartToSaveHim: The {{Trope Namer|s}}--in order to keep the Duke from having Christian killed, Zidler urges Satine to pretend she does not love him and never did, so he will leave the Moulin Rouge. It fails to make him leave, but breaks his heart only too well.

* DownerEnding: Since the movie opens with the main character sorrowfully saying "The woman I love...d is dead", it's not hard to guess where this will go. Paying close attention in the opening reveals [[spoiler:it's even worse--the Moulin Rouge got shut down after events of the main story]].
