* DuelToTheDeath: When wondering what to do about Anna's affair, Karenin briefly wonders if he should challenge her lover to a duel. Though he dismisses the idea on the grounds that he'd lose and was afraid of death; he does realize how utterly futile it would have been if he'd won as he'd merely have killed a man he'd never really know, and his marriage would be none the better.

* AuthorFilibuster: Tolstoy loves this trope. In fact, the entire final section of this book, after [[spoiler:[[ItWasHisSled Anna's]] [[AllThereIsToKnowAboutTheCryingGame suicide]]]], which nobody seems to remember, is nothing except an anarcho-pacifist Christian moralist lecture.
