* BreakingTheFourthWall: Che, being an omnipresent narrator and all.



* DarkReprise: Although the melody of "Don't Cry for Me Argentina" is reused throughout the show, "Eva's Final Broadcast" is probably the most typical example.
** The chorus part of "Rainbow High" gets its own downright chilling DarkReprise at the end of "Lament."

** The whole musical falls prey to this. When it was written in the 1970's, there was only one book about Eva Peron published in English, written by a political opponent of the Perons. (Imagine writing a musical about UsefulNotes/BarackObama based solely upon his Conservapedia page.) More recent biographers have portrayed Eva much more evenhandedly; she may not have been a saint, but she wasn't a villain, either.

* DoubleEntendre: The line, "Put me down for a lifetime of success. Give me credit; I'll find ways of paying," can be interpreted very differently depending on whether you think "put me down" means "sign me up" or "denigrate me", and "paying" means "recompensing" or "suffering".

According to cast member Michael Cerveris (Juan), it was included to remind the audience that Juan and Eva came to love each other passionately, even if their relationship began as a mutual agreement to assist each other in their political ambitions.

* IAmBecomingSong: “Don’t Cry for Me Argentina” zig zags this trope. Evita is claiming her supporters are [[InvokedTrope ascribing this trope to her]], but she is [[ImNotAHeroIm humbly denying that she is changing]], all while she is explaining why she ''has'' to change.



* ITakeOffenseToThatLastOne: In the film version of "Rainbow Tour", Eva is greeted in Italy by Demonstrators who decry her and her husband as fascists. Her response: "They called me a whore! They actually called me a whore!"
** The Ambassador [[DeadpanSnarker comes back with]] [[HonestAdvisor "I'm still called an admiral,]] [[ServileSnarker Yet I gave up the sea long ago!"]]
* IWantSong: Eva's lyrics in "Eva, Beware of the City" and the entire point of "Buenos Aires."

Added DiffLines:

* AntiLoveSong: “Goodbye and Thank You” makes clear that Evita views relationships as mutually exploitative, so you should get as much out of them while you can. The movie also includes a mock LostLoveMontage.

* SleepingTheirWayToTheTop: Evita’s strategy for making it out of poverty and all the way to First Lady of Argentina. “Goodbye and Thank You” celebrates this trope, while “Peron’s Latest Flame” condemns it.

** Eva's speeches also qualify. She's just standing there at the podium, singing, but it' so badass and triumphant, you can' they'll but want to chant "E-VA! E-VA! E-VA!"

** Another portion cut from the film was what happened immediately before the ending narration, with embalmers moving to preserve her body for her public.

** Another portion cut from the film was what happened immediately before the ending narration, with embalmers moving to preserve her body for her public. The lines they sing are moved to the very end after Che confronts Peron before her body as it lay in state.
