* BeautyIsNeverTarnished: Anthony has remarkably smooth skin despite his life at sea and the beating he takes early in the film. Similarly, Johanna [[spoiler: after her time in the asylum]] is beautiful, even with her yellow hair perfectly combed.

* EvenEvilHasStandards: One of the only men Todd revises to kill is one who enters his shop with wife and child. Granted, it might be more because he simply doesn't want to get caught, but considering everything that happened to ''his'' wife and child, there's got to be some empathy going on here.
* EvilMakeover: Sorta, or something. When Todd and Mrs. Lovett take Toby under their wing, Toby starts to get some characteristics from them, mostly the untamed hair and some eyebags and very pale skin.

* HideYourPregnancy: Helena Bonham-Carter was pregnant during the film production, resulting in magical size-changing breasts over the course of the movie.



* IronicEcho: "Life is for the alive, my dear." Said first by Mrs. Lovett, trying to get Sweeney to move on from his dead wife. Sweeney says this line in the final song, [[spoiler: right before, having realized her betrayal, throwing Mrs. Lovett into the oven.]]

Added DiffLines:

* ScreamDiscretionShot: "Poor Thing" is accompanied by flashback footage, which is soundless at first, but at the very end -- when Lucy is completely surrounded by the partygoers -- her scream and their laughter compete with Mrs. Lovett's singing.

* MortonsFork: Sweeney uses this to justify killing everyone. Either you're powerful, because you're evil, and therefore [[KarmicDeath you deserve to die]], or you're good, so you're oppressed, and therefore "[[MercyKill death will be a relief]]".

ThereAreTwoKindsOfPeopleInTheWorld - "the one staying put in his proper place and the one with his foot in the other one's face" AKA either you're powerful, because you're evil, and therefore [[KarmicDeath you deserve to die]], or you're good, so you're oppressed, and therefore "[[MercyKill death will be a relief]]".relief]]". To his credit, even in his madness he includes himself in his litany of nihilism - his drive to kill Judge Turpin is the only reason he has to live any more.

* DownerEnding: [[spoiler:Sweeney Todd may get his revenge, but he also unknowingly kills his long lost wife Lucy, and when he finds out Mrs. Lovett knew who Lucy was all along, he throws her into the oven to be burned alive. As he beings to sing a reprise of "The Barber And His Wife," Toby, who is implied to have been driven insane by what he has seen and done, emerges from the sewers and kills Todd himself, with his own razor, no less. The last shot is the now-dead Todd holding his dead wife.]]
