** Tokita is a mild, more benevolent example. He creates the DC Mini due to wanting to help people and due to the idea being inherently [[RuleOfCool interesting and cool]]. However, he doesn't really take the time to consider the potential abuse and harm that could come from the DC Mini.

** Tokita is a very mild example of this trope, bordering on a deconstruction of both how beneficial and harmful it can be when a scientist has this mindset.

* VoiceOfTheLegion: If you're thinking, "Why has 'so many people saying the same thing at once' never sounded so scary before?", that's because in ''Paprika'', they use the same pitch changes and speak at EXACTLY the same time, creating an effect that's [[UncannyValley pretty unnerving]].

* BadBoss / MeanBoss: You'd think the Chairman for a company that creates AppliedPhlebotinum would be a little more, you know, ''enthusiastic'' about technology. It's implied later on that the sole reason he supported it was [[spoiler:to be able to walk again by placing his consciousness into a younger host body, such as Osanai's]].

* GreenThumb: The Chairman.

* GreenThumb: The Chairman. In his dream world, he takes on the attribute of a tree to fit his distaste of technology and obsession with controlling reality.



* HugeGuyTinyGirl: Tokita and Dr. Chiba.

* HugeGuyTinyGirl: The portly large Tokita and slender Dr. Chiba.



* {{Kuudere}}: Chiba, again.

to:

* {{Kuudere}}: Chiba, again. Her emphasis on self-control and remaining stoic makes her cold and aloof to others but she still maintains a great deal of care for others when things become serious and has an inner passionate side.



* MadArtist: Osanai. He's shown to possess an insane interest in beauty and a disgust for whatever he deems ugly and a fascination for the aesthetics of butterflies which he chooses to manifest in the dream world. He even restrains Paprika to a table in a manner reminiscent to a butterfly.



* TheReasonYouSuckSpeech: Overlapping with WhatTheHellHero and PoorCommunicationKills. Chiba gives a rather ''epic'' 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]].

* 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!

** 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.]]
