* HeManWomanHater: No one questions the sexist machismo culture of the mafia. For example, Michael's level of pain over the death of his and Kay's unborn child is dependent on whether or not it was a boy.

** This doubles as IdiotBall when you remember that Woltz admitted to knowing the story of how Vito Corleone strong-armed Johnny Fontane's band leader into letting him go. Meaning he knew what the Corleones were capable of and ''provoked them anyway.''

* HopeSpot: In a seeming PetTheDog moment Michael embraces a crying Fredo at Connie's behest, appearing to forgive him in ''Part II.'' [[spoiler:Instead he gives a pointed look at Al Neri, signifying that the protection from assassination Fredo had while Carmela Corleone was alive is over.]]

* AllThereInTheManual:
** When Michael and Solozzo switch to speaking Italian during the restaurant scene, the subtitles don't pick up their dialogue. The conversation (translated in English) is in the novel.
** Why did Michael ignore Clemenza's advice to [[spoiler:come out of the men's room and kill Solozzo and Police Captain McCluskey immediately]]? In the novel, it's explained that [[spoiler:one of the restaurant patrons was watching him in a way that made him think he was a bodyguard planted there by Solozzo; making an immediate move would result in the assassination being foiled by the bodyguard.]]
** The names, characterizations, and histories of various characters, including most of the Dons at the peace conference, are in the novel.

** When Vito is requesting that Bonasera clean and reconstruct Sonny's body so that his mother doesn't have to see him in his current state, even Bonasera - a mortician! - is visibly startled at how savagely Sonny was mauled by the gunmen.

** BullyingADragon: Jack Woltz rambles furiously to a stone-faced Tom Hagen about how he won't fold to the demands of an ''extremely powerful crime lord.'' Needless to say [[DeadAnimalWarning this doesn't end well]].

Added DiffLines:

* TemptingFate: Jack Woltz arrogantly telling Tom Hagen that he won't fold to Don Corleone's demands. Hagen even smirks when Woltz says this during his rant. [[spoiler:One severed prized horse head in his bed later...]]

* DoorClosesEnding: Probably the most famous use of this trope. Done after Michael lies to Kay about not being responsible for killing his brother-in-law, we see the door shut on Kay as Michael is being proclaimed the new Don.
