* BerserkButton: "SCREW THE MIDDLE CLASSES! I WILL NEVER ACCEPT THEM! AND THEY WILL NEVER DENY ME ANYTHING AGAIN!" [[note]] The third line of this outburst was cut from the stage version, and all subsequent revivals as well. [[/note]]

* 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.


Added DiffLines:

* BreakupSong: “Another Suitcase in Another Hall”


Added DiffLines:

* 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.

* DatedHistory: Eva's entire relationship with Magaldi, which has been called into question by more recent research. (See the [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Eva_Per%C3%B3n#Move_to_Buenos_Aires Other Wiki]] (second paragraph of linked section) for details.)

** 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 Wiki/{{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.

** ICantBelieveAGuyLikeYouWouldNoticeMe: Eva's first line as a young girl is one of these to Magaldi. It quickly becomes clear she's buttering him up to get what she wants.
* Later, her first conversation with Peron starts with her doing the same... and simultaneously Peron is saying almost the same words to her for the same reason, showing that this relationship is going to be very different from Eva's previous relationships.
