* CruelAndUnusualDeath: [[spoiler: Iris's is exceptionally cruel. She gets chased, tied to a doorknob, stripped and blindfolded, and then her attacker outfits her with a squid, rapes and strangles her, so that she gets doubly humiliated by being made to feel everything he's feeling.]]

Added DiffLines:

* ColorBlindConfusion: Evidence is discovered that the killer must be colorblind. It never gets to be a useful clue because the colorblind guy kept it a secret, but serves as a BrickJoke in the final confrontation, where the killer tells the protagonist his color blindness is the only way one can stand the latter's taste in clothing.

* ProfaneLastWords: This is [[LampshadeHanging lampshaded]] when the villain points out to Lenny that in fatal air plane crashes the pilot's last words 90% of the time are some variant of "Oh Shit!" just as he's about to shoot Lenny.

** TruthInTelevision: However, it's probable television news reports wouldn't show the more raw (and profanity-laced) version of any gangstah rapper, instead showing a "safe" version of a song.

* {{Zeerust}}: Leaving aside the fact that SQUID hasn't made an appearance yet, some of the film's fashions look pretty absurd, and there's also a moment with a voice-''transcribing'' answer machine that raises an eyebrow these days. Also, the kind of outspoken gangster rap that the film portrays as part of a major social movement had gone out of style by 2000. Nor was Los Angeles quite the borderline-anarchic urban warzone the movie depicts it as either.

Averted with Faith's grunge-style rock, it was still popular on the underground scene she cavorts in for long after 2000.

* InsaneEqualsViolent: Despite the killer's horrific crimes, one character mentions he has a brain tumor interfering his SQUID signal, bringing into question whether he's actually in control of his actions at all.
