** The first season could arguably be seen as a deconstruction of Hannibal's DracoInLeatherPants status in popular culture, through BaitTheDog. Hopkins' adaptations in particular often made Hannibal sympathetic through his AffablyEvil nature, and the fact that many of his victims were AssholeVictims. While this Hannibal has these traits to an extent, the show slowly draws attention to the more selfish motives behind his crimes, and doesn't shy away from or downplay how his actions end up affecting good, genuinely decent people, like Will Graham.

* BittersweetEnding: To the series. [[spoiler:Dolarhyde is killed by Will and Hannibal. Will and Hannibal finally make amends by killing together, only for Will to end their embrace by hurling them both hundreds of feet down into the ocean. Chilton is alive but horribly injured. Jack is alive but completely alone. Alana and Margot flee the country with their son, presumably waiting for their promised visit from Lecter. Bedelia is last seen at a table set for three, drugged, terrified, and with her own cooked leg served on a platter.]]

* MurderSuicide: arguably what Will tries to do [[spoiler: in the season 3 finale]] as a last attempt to save himself/his and Hannibal's potential future victims knowing that he won't be able to stop, but so that he and Hannibal can still die in each other's arms.

* BatmanGambit: Lecter pulls these off nearly OnceAnEpisode, and they basically always work, though as of Season 2, Will (Lecter's most frequent gambit target in Season 1) seems to have built up a tolerance.

* FullNameBasis: Will Graham, Jack Crawford, Garret Jacob Hobbs, Alana Bloom... basically every character but Hannibal usually gets this treatment.

** Also, just about everyone who eats or drinks something that Lecter puts in front of them -- which is most of the cast by this point (even Will's dogs, who just love the Doc's homemade sausage).
