* ContinuitySnarl: See the Expanded Universe entry. Basically, the Myspace pages were barely touched by the actual higher-ups. However, many consider them canon. This is made complicated by the fact some IS written by Word of God, and Word of God never told the Myspace writers they were inaccurate, or corrected anything afterwards.

** Although the MySpaces are cloudy in terms of canon, this has been confirmed by the writers. Furthermore, it is stated in Happiness is Not a Warm Scalpel that Amber changed her surname for the stage.

** The ExpandedUniverse materials found on the Largo kids' MySpaces imply that Pavi and Amber might have had a chance at normality if their mother had survived their childhood... but Luigi was always like he is.

* TrailersAlwaysSpoil: The film treats Nathan's SecretIdentity as, well, a secret for about the first third of the film, and the website actually treats him and Repo Man as separate characters (they even have separate MySpace pages). The trailer, meanwhile, proudly proclaims that the film features "Anthony Stewart Head as Repo Man."

* OlderThanTheyLook: Blind Mag. According to Rotti, Mag was 19 when she got her eyes. 17 years later would now make her 36. Sarah Brightman was at least 10 years older than that during filming.
** Ditto for the Largo brothers. Their ages are given on a BlinkAndYouMissIt shot of a newspaper that reveals Pavi is 32 and Luigi is 37, but Nivek Ogre (Pavi) was 46 during filming while Bill Mosley (Luigi) was ''57''.

* ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin: The Genetic Opera is an opera about (at least in part) genetics. Grave-Robber is a grave robber. Blind Mag is (or rather, ''was'') blind.

* KavorkaMan: They all love-a the Pavi! Despite him being a horrifically scarred man with the mind of a horny teenage [[TheSmurfs Vanity Smurf]] who ''wears women's faces.'' An in-universe DracoInLeatherPants, perhaps?
** Just because Pavi sees himself this way and is rich enough to afford "Women of mercenary affection" doesn't mean anyone else agrees.

Though, since all of the women with him are employees of [=GeneCo=] it's possible they're being paid to afford "Women of mercenary affection" doesn't mean anyone else agrees.fawn all over him.

* BlackComedyRape: Luigi is a murderer with anger management issues. Pavi is a rapist who wears women's faces as masks. And they're the comic relief characters.

* SiblingRivalry: A constant between the Largo siblings for the high, ''high'' stakes of inheriting the most powerful company in the world. It's mainly between Luigi and Pavi since Amber's too high to comment on anything happening around her. [[EstablishingCharacterMoment "Mark It Up"]] sets it up pretty effectively.



* TearOffYourFace: Due to excess surgery Amber's actually falls off on stage.

* HiddenDepths: Amber may be a self destructive RichBitch, but she is one of the only children who seems to notice her dad is growing ill and seem genuinely concerned for him. And it appears she might just [[spoiler: be a capable ruler of Geneco after all.]]

** Honestly, there's little else to smile about in this world. GeneCo has to keep the population alive and sated with ''something''.
** The appeal of the event may not be the actual Opera- GeneCo is the single most powerful corporation on the planet, Rotti is the most powerful man, etc... and the public is invited to be in the company of the elite for one night a year. It might be more VIP appeal than the content of the performance.
