Added DiffLines:

* ItsAllAboutMe: It becomes extremely clear Frank is an attention whore who only cares about people if they A) pay attention to him, or B) are of some use to him. And even then... in the musical, when [[spoiler:Columbia takes the first anti-matter shot for Frank]]...
-->'''Frank-n-Furter''': You did that for me...?\\
[Columbia nods yes.]\\
'''Frank-n-Furter''': Stupid bitch. [[note]]Of course, this line can be performed a couple of different ways, either with cruelty ("You always were an idiot.") or pity ("You shouldn't have thrown your life away for me.")[[/note]]
* IWantMyMommy: Brad Majors in "The Floor Show": "It's beyond me/Help me, Mommy!"



* LeaningOnTheFourthWall: Dr. Scott does this in the dining room scene when he says:
-->I knew he was in with a bad crowd, but it is even worse than I imagined! [[note]]WHO THE FUCK ARE YOU TALKING TO? WHO THE FUCK ARE ''WE'' TALKING TO?![[/note]]



* ModestyBedsheet: [[spoiler:Janet and Rocky]] upon Frank N. Furter's discovering them. {{Justified|Trope}} in that they were surrounded by people at the time.



* ThePaidForHarem: The party-goers (or unconventional conventionists) who hang around Frank's parties.



* ThoseWackyNazis: Dr. Scott is implied to be one by Frank.



* TwentyFourHourPartyPeople: How do those party guests know Frank, anyway? [[FanConvention They're unconventional conventionists.]][[note]]That's me![[/note]]
** He's a well-known scientist back on Transsexual, Transylvania. Plus, one of the scrapped sequels (''Revenge Of The Old Queen'') revealed that he's [[spoiler:the prince of Transsexual.]]

* IAmSong[=/=]IWantSong: Sweet Transvestite can count for both. Frank's describing himself as a [[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin sweet transvestite]], yet he's also asking (or demanding because he never gave them the option) Brad and Janet to "stay for the night."



* ICanExplain: Frank says this right before singing his final song. Too bad Riff Raff and Magenta aren't convinced of his story. [[spoiler:They shoot him anyway.]]
** And "I'm Going Home" doesn't explain a damn thing.
* IfYouEverDoAnythingToHurtHer: ''FRAAAANK-FURT-EEEEER!''. A rare use of this line by two men who are not in any position to threaten Frank-n-Furter at all.
* TheIgor: Riff Raff.
* IncestSubtext: Riff Raff and Magenta give a strong impression of this.[[note]]Elbow sex! Elbow sex![[/note]]
* IncomingHam: "''You're'' lucky, ''he's'' lucky, ''I'm'' lucky, '''WE'RE ALL LUCKY!!!'''"[[note]]THE BANISTER'S LUCKY![[/note]]

* GroinAttack: Janet to Frank N. Furter in "Planet Schmanet Janet".
* TheHedonist: Guess who! Brad and Janet, after their [[spoiler:sexcapades]] with Dr. Frank-n-Furter.



* HerrDoctor:
** Dr. Scott.
--> "Go on, Dr. Scott. Or, should I say, [[TheVonTropeFamily Dr. Von Scott!"]][[note]]SIEG HEIL![[/note]]
** Interestingly enough, Dr. Frank N. Furter himself originally had a German accent in the early days of the stage show. For reasons unknown, the idea was quickly dropped.
* HiddenDisdainReveal:
-->'''Magenta''': "You killed them! But I thought you liked them. They liked you."\\
'''Riffraff''': "They didn't like me! They NEVER liked me!!
* HighClassGlass: One of the party guests prominently features a monocle.
* HistoricalInJoke: Almost immediately after Goebbels surrendered to the Russian Army, the US and Soviet governments began smuggling Nazi scientists out of the country for their knowledge about rocketry and launched missile weapons. Werner von Braun is one of the most famous examples. The American plan to recruit former Nazi scientists was called [[AC:Operation Paperclip]]. This is why Frank calls Dr. Scott out on his accent.

* AntiMatter: A laser! Made of pure antimatter![[note]]Well then it's not really a laser, is it?/OUR PHYSICS SUCK![[/note]]
** Fun fact: the idea of an antimatter laser is completely redundant because photons are their own antiparticles. [[note]]So you mean, it doesn't matter?[[/note]]



* GiveMyRegardsInTheNextWorld: Riff Raff tells Dr. Frank N. Furter [[spoiler:before he kills him]], "Say goodbye to all of this[[note]]GOODBYE, ALL OF THIS![[/note]]...and hello[[note]]HELLO...[[/note]] to oblivion.[[note]]HI, OBLIVION! HOW'S THE WIFE AND KIDS?[[/note]]"

* FieryRedhead: Magenta some of the time, mostly when she calls Frank out on his Transylvania bullshit.
* FlorenceNightingaleEffect: Janet bandages Rocky's wounds with strips from her own slip. Afterward, they [[spoiler:do more than just kiss]].
* FormalFullArrayOfCutlery: The dinner scene gives everyone between four and seven of each utensil for a meal with only one dish.

**WordOfGod says that Jim Sharman did this to show that Frank and Riff Raff are [[spoiler: aliens trying to imitate a human dinner party and]] failing miserably.

* FailureHero: Brad and Janet. If the opening credits hadn't told you they were "a hero" and "a heroine," you'd never guess.
* {{Fangirl}}: Columbia, for Frank, then for Eddie then for Frank again...I think.
-->"EDDIE!!!"

* PinballProtagonist: The only thing of note that the protagonists do is get laid and survive the evening.
** The film is very much about how Brad and Janet are either sexually liberated or corrupted.



* SeeminglyWholesomeFiftiesGirl: Janet, oh, poor Janet. Columbia may have been this before she met Frank and Eddie.
