* ShoutOut: In the 2008 MarvelComics adaptation by Roy Thomas, when Basil Hallward is talking about Dorian's ruined acquaintances, he mentions "Lord Kent's only son" and a panel depicting Lord Kent gives him [[{{Superman}} small round wire-framed glasses and dark hair with a distinctive spit curl]].

Added DiffLines:

Added DiffLines:

* KickTheSonOfABitch: Dorian himself suffers this in the ''Deadpool Killustrated'' comic book when he's brutally murdered by Deadpool. Even though the Deadpool in that story was a murderous psychopath, it's pretty difficult to feel much sympathy for Dorian, considering all the horrible things he's done.

* NoodleIncident: Dorian writes something on a card and shows it to Alan Campbell to blackmail him. We never learn what Dorian wrote. Given Alan's horrified reaction about being ruined, as well as other young men from Dorian's sordid past being described as having been ruined and shunned by society, one can guess that it was related to homosexuality, which in Victorian society was viewed as a crime, and would ruin one's life if found out (as indeed Wilde himself was also involved in just such a 'scandal').

A tale of corruption and obsession that is surprisingly dark for the author of ''TheImportanceOfBeingEarnest''. This story was used as evidence against Wilde and resulted in him being prosecuted for homosexuality and sentenced to two years hard labor. A very good Halloween read.

* AdaptationDyeJob: In the original novel, Dorian was blond. In every modern adaptation (the 1970 one with Helmut Berger is a notable exception), he's portrayed with black hair. It has a lot to do with the way beauty standards have changed over time.

* TheChanteuse: In the 1945 film Sibyl is a vaudeville singer rather than a stage actress. Angela Lansbury's performance of "Goodbye Little Yellow Bird" is a highlight of the film.
