Added DiffLines:
** "faber" is Latin for "maker". Make of that what you will.

* {{Zeerust}}: Though the novel merely takes place in an unspecified future time after 1990, the movie's technology is zeerust-y. However, technology like the "parlor walls" and the "seashell radios" mirror today's big, flatscreen [=TVs=] (some of which can be mounted onto walls, making them "parlor walls" to some extent), while the seashell radios are similar to either Bluetooth phones or [=iPod=] earbud headphones.

* {{Delinquents}}: Culture has been allowed to decline to the point where teenagers bully people, vandalize public property, and run down pedestrians for kicks and jollies. One closer-to-home example happens happens when Montag is nearly struck by a car full of teenagers and Clarisse gets trampled over by a bunch of teenage hoodlums.

Removed Heroic Sacrifice, as Faber does not actually sacrifice himself (at least in the novel). The hound passes his house by and it's even implied that he escapes the destruction of the town on the 5AM bus.
* HeroicSacrifice: [[spoiler:Faber gives his life to save Montag when cornered by the Mechanical Hound.]]

* AdultFear: For those who live in countries where certain books are banned, and especially countries where ''most'' books are banned. The fall of literacy is also another major concern.

The fall of literacy is as well as the addictiveness of non-literature media such as television also another major concern.concern--consider the marriage of the Montags, especially Mildred's addiction to her TV walls.

Not Brainwashed refers to a character who has wholeheartedly switched sides, not simply a character who isn't brainwashed.
* NotBrainwashed: Clarisse and Faber are the only ones who don't watch the parlor wall [=TV=]s. Also, Montag hates to watch television, and only does it to please his wife.

* ANaziByAnyOtherName: The Firemen, especially in the movie, where it is [[LampshadeHanging lampshaded]] with a NotSoDifferent directed at ''the audience''. Captain Beatty, in pointing out doctrine, comments: "If you are going to burn ''some'' books...you have to burn ''all'' the books!" He does so while holding up a copy of ''Literature/MeinKampf''.

* NoKillLikeOverkill: In the movie adaptation, a flamethrower is used to start the fires. ** In the book, entire houses are burned no matter how many books are inside. In the movie the firemen only burn the house if there are too many books to move them all outside.

* SuicideByCop: In the novel, at least. It's heavily implied that [[spoiler:Beatty]] was belittling Montag because he ''wanted'' Montag to [[spoiler:burn him alive.]]
