* NotSoDifferent: Luzhin and Svidrigailov are two despicable and immoral men who are treated by Rodion with complete revulsion. However, it is constantly implied that they follow the same [[NietzscheWannabe pattern of thought]] as Raskolnikov, only devoid of all ambiguity and pretense of [[WellIntentionedExtremist improving the world by breaking the law]].

* WhatYouAreInTheDark: [[spoiler:As Porfiry tells Raskolnikov, he doesn't really have evidence to pin the crime on him even if he knows that Rodion is the killer, the possibility that Svidrigailov could potentially blackmail and exploit his sister and his family disappears when Raskolnikov finds out he had committed suicide. He is scott-free and yet it is at this moment that Rodion finally confesses to the crime]].

* BadassPacifist: Dunya, so much. She's known for being able to endure anything, and Svidrigailov says that had she lived in an earlier time she would have been a martyr who would have smiled as she faced death. And then when Svidrigailov corners her and threatens to assault her, she [[spoiler:pulls out a gun]] and notes that [[spoiler:it's his wife's]], and that [[spoiler:she knows he killed her]], then [[spoiler:misses and decides to drop the gun rather than killing him, telling Svidrigailov that she's never loved him.]]. Svidrigailov responds by [[spoiler:opening the door, and being so shaken by his experience that he kills himself.

* BoisterousBruiser: Razumikhin is very friendly and talkative, and is also known for being able to beat up people if he wants to.



** Porfiry is truly a HeroAntagonist, while with Luzhin and Svidrigailov its a case of EvilVersusEvil where both men (especially Svidrigailov) represent for Raskolnikov a darker version of what he could possibly become, if he completely abandoned any moral

* BigDamnHeroes: Lebezyatnikov bursting in just when [[spoiler:Luzhin is accusing Sonya of stealing 100 rubles]] and explains what really happened.



* BeautyEqualsGoodness: The author at one point interjects to say that Pulcheria Alexandrrovna looks younger than her age because of being a moral person, and that this is the only way people look beautiful into their forties. Unless you're Luhzin, apparently.

* TheCasanova: Svidrigailov claims to be able to attract any woman to him.



* DeadlyEuphemism: Svidrigailov likes talking about going to America. By which he actually means [[spoiler:suicide.]]]
* ADeathInTheLimelight: After being set up for almost the whole book, [[spoiler:Svidrigailov]] finally gets quite a few chapters about him and then [[spoiler:commits suicide.]]
* DespairEventHorizon: Katerina Ivanovna crosses it when [[spoiler:she is driven out of her house after her memorial dinner.]]



* EntitledToHaveYou: Luzhin feels he's entitled to have Dunya.



* EvenTheGirslWantHer: Dunya not only has three men who have a romantic interest in her (if one-sided for some of them), but Svidrigailov suggests that Marta Petrovna kept Dunya because she had fallen in love with her.
* EveryoneCanSeeIt: In regards to Razumikhin's feelings for Dunya.



* HumilitationConga: Luzhin not only [[spoiler:gets chased out of the house and prevented from marrying Dunya]] but [[spoiler:gets pretty humiliated when Lebezyatnikov and Raskolnikov reveal his scheme to frame Sonya.]]



* HorribleJudgeOfCharacter: Raskolnikov sees Razumikhin as this for always finding another explanation for the evidence that he's a murderer. [[spoiler:It does turn out that even he suspected Raskolinkov for some time, though.]]



* IncorruptiblePurePureness: Sonya, her profession notwithstanding.

to:

* IncorruptiblePurePureness: Sonya, her profession notwithstanding. Dunya as well.



* LampshadeHanging: Razumikhin's verbal recreation of the vents of the murder is spot on, but Zossimov dismisses it as "melodrama."

* MartyrWithoutACause: Porfiry muses that this is probably why [[spoiler:Nikolai confessed]], and Raskolnikov and Dunia are both noted to have this trait by other characters.



** Razumikhin sounds very close (and is related) to the Russian word "razumny", which can mean "[[TheChessmaster intelligent]]" or "[[NiceGuy sensible]]".

** Razumikhin sounds very close (and is related) to the Russian word "razumny", which can mean "[[TheChessmaster intelligent]]" or "[[NiceGuy sensible]]". [[LampshadeHanging Lampshaded]] when Svidrigailov notes that Razumikhin must be a reasonable person since even his name implies it.



%%* OlderThanTheyLook: Luhzin and Pulcheria Alexandrovna.

to:

** A more minor example earlier in the book: Razumikhin says he's having trouble translating German, but he turns out he doesn't and was just saying this to give Raskolnikov a job.
* OhCrap: Raskolnikov has this reaction when Porfiry reveals that he wasn't "clearing up a misunderstanding" but instead he knows that Raskolnikov is the murderer.
** Luzhin also reacts this way when he realizes that he is actually going to lose his chance at marriage.
%%* OlderThanTheyLook: Luhzin Luhzin, Svidrigailov and Pulcheria Alexandrovna.


Added DiffLines:

* StrawmanPolitical: [[SubvertedTrope Subverted]] with Lebezyatnikov, who does have rather simplified arguments for "modern thought", but the narrative notes that he's just a person who's not very smart and tends to make any philosophical position sound unreasonable regardless of its actual merit.
