* FreudWasRight: Invoked. The sheer amount of imagery available to prove this in the movie would be enough to satisfy any psychiatry fan. And it doesn't get any more Freudian than Paprika becoming the Sphinx and her enemy becoming Oedipus to attack her!

Added DiffLines:

** The gay angle is ''much'' more pronounced in the rather politically incorrect novel version. Kon, being a touch more liberal-minded, tried to emphasize the unhealthy nature of the characters' obsessional relationships while making the orientation incidental, though YMMV on how much it worked.

* ChubbyChaser: [[spoiler:Chiba. This is particularly evident when it's revealed that the early scene of her being stuck in an elevator with Tokita was another fantasy.]]

Added DiffLines:

** The dialogue states that they attended college together. That doesn't necessarily mean that they're the same age. Shima could have been an older/non-traditional college student.

-->'''Chiba:''' You were so selfishly wrapped up in what you want to do that you ignore what needs to be done. You never coded the DC Mini. That was just irresponsible. It cost lives, don't you get it? Of course not. Not much gets through all that protective ''fat'', now does it? Here's what does: "What a scientist!" "He's so amazing!" It's like a really bad joke! What good is a scientist to mankind if he doesn't care about people, hmm? If you want to be the king of geeks with your bloated ego, then just keep on doing only what pleases you. Go ahead, indulge in your freakish masturbation, because that's what you're ''good'' at!

* TheReasonYouSuckSpeech: Overlapping with WhatTheHellHero and PoorCommunicationKills. Chiba gives one to Tokita calling him out on his immaturity and only doing what he wants instead of what needs to be done. [[spoiler: This unfortunately leads Tokita to go into Himuro's dream to figure his motive for stealing the DC Mini. It doesn't go well]].

* HollywoodOld: Shima mentions he and Konakawa were classmates in college, which is shocking considering they appear to be vastly different ages. As dates are not mentioned, we don't know if Shima is YoungerThanTheyLook or Konawa is OlderThanTheyLook, but it's undeniable that the doctor could pose convincingly as Konakawa's father.

* ICouldaBeenAContender: It's revealed that Konakawa originally [[spoiler:wanted to be a filmmaker when he was younger]], but got feet of clay. He does his best not to even think about this trope, but it's expressed nonverbally for much of the film because it's the root of his anxiety.
