* TheStoic: Enforced with Tommy in the film adaptation. Because of his disability he can hardly react to what's going on around him so he spends the first half of the movie staring blankly into space

Born at the end of WWI (WWII in the movie and Broadway versions) to a war widow, Tommy Walker is an ordinary child growing up in postwar Britain until his father, [[BackFromTheDead presumed dead but actually missing behind enemy lines for several years]], comes home, finds his wife with her new lover, and kills him in self-defense before Tommy's eyes (in the Broadway version, anyway; the movie version has the new lover kill the husband in self-defense, and the album itself leaves the nature of the event deliberately ambiguous) while Tommy witnesses it all in a mirror. Traumatized by the experience, and his parents' exhortation that "You didn't hear it, you didn't see it, [[ConfusingMultipleNegatives you won't say nothing to no one ever in your life]]", Tommy is struck deaf, dumb (i.e. mute), and blind.

Added DiffLines:

* BlatantLies: In the stage show, Tommy's father claims in an interview after he's been cured, "We never gave up faith [in Tommy recovering], all through the years, not once!" Especially blatant since it comes about ten minutes after a song that's ''literally about him and his wife giving up faith''.
