* PetTheDog: When Toby almost catches Sweeney killing Pirelli. Rather than kill him, Todd tells Toby to go downstairs so that Lovett could make him a Meat Pie. When Toby didn't budge, Sweeney sweetens the deal by saying that, he is allowed to have some Gin with it. Which causes the boy to rush downstairs in excitement.

* HangingJudge: Judge Turpin, even more than in the stage version. There's a new scene after he sentences a preteen to death, and it's not really clear whether the charge is true or not -- and as he and the Beadle walk out of the courtroom, the Beadle expresses that the kid "must have done ''something'' to warrant a hanging." The judge agrees, as in his worldview, everyone has done something along those lines.

* KillEmAll: [[spoiler:Were you expecting this movie to have a different, yet happy ending? Even though this is a film version of a revenge tragedy? Sweeney Todd, Judge Turpin, Lucy, and Mrs. Lovett are all dead. Only Toby, Johanna, and Anthony are all alive. Toby is a murderer now. Anthony and Johanna do not appear at the end and are presumed to have escaped. Just before the end, Johanna got the clues needed to figure out that Sweeney was her father and that he murdered her mother as well as Turpin. It remains unknown whether she - or the law - ever actually figures it out.]]

* MortonsFork: Sweeney uses this to justify killing ''everyone'' in [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TxoFi5Lie34 "Epiphany"]]. 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]]". 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.

* RealityEnsues: Once Sweeney's finished singing 'Epiphany', Mrs Lovett - not looking at all impressed - asks dryly "That's all very well, but what're we going to do about ''him?"'' Alluding to [[spoiler:Pirelli's corpse stuffed in the trunk]]. Cue Todd awkwardly getting up off his knees.

* PrecisionFStrike: Todd's first song (No Place Like London) has "shit" in the lyrics, used as a rhyming word, no less. The language up until then has been G-rated so it's a bit unexpected.

* 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.
