* FollowTheLeader: Compare it with later ThemeSerialKiller flicks like ''Resurrection''[[note]]A ''blatant'' rip-off starring Christopher Lambert and Leland Orser (who also played the man forced by John Doe at gunpoint to rape the Lust victim to death)[[/note]], ''Film/TakingLives'', ''Film/{{Anamorph}}'', ''Film/{{Horsemen}}'', ''WΔZ'', ''Film/SuspectZero'' or ''Franchise/{{Saw}}''. Of course that's not to say ''Se7en'' didn't borrow some elements from ''Film/TheSilenceOfTheLambs''.

** Now, normally, that'd probably be enough to seal the deal... except that not too far from this rainy city is, apparently, an ''arid desert''. This would make some sense for California, but makes absolutely zero sense for any city in temperate New England.

* SuddenlyShouting: A bone chilling version of this occurs when [[spoiler: John Doe walks into the police station to turn himself in with his self-mutilated hands. Doubles as RuleOfThree, as it is on Doe's third utterance of "detective" that Mills & Somerset notice him.]]

* TomatoInTheMirror: Of a sort. It turns out that Wrath is [[spoiler: Mills himself]]. When John Doe promises to take him to the field, we've already seen Gluttony, Greed, Sloth, Pride and Lust, and we know that Envy and Wrath have to be on the way. Envy is [[spoiler: John Doe, who beheaded Mills' wife in a fit of jealously]]. When Mills finds out, he [[spoiler:kills John Doe in a fit of rage, ultimately obeying Doe's command to "Become Wrath"]].
