Added DiffLines:

* BitingTheHandHumor: Mozart can't resist directly insulting his benefactors and advocates.


Added DiffLines:

* VindicatedByHistory: InUniverse. Many of Mozart's works [[AudienceAlienatingPremise don't go over well]] when they premiere, but by the time Salieri is institutionalized, everyone knows Mozart's music.

* CountryMatters: Courtesy of Schikaneder, after finding out Mozart had been writing a requiem. He even says it in the PG-rated theatrical cut, unbelievably (though it's been muffled so it's hard to say whether Schikaneder said the C word or "clown").
-->'''Schikaneder''': ''Look, you little cunt! Do you know how many people I've hired for you?''

* InsufferableGenius: Both men have aspects of the trope -- Salieri is snobbish and pandering, Mozart is boorish, rude, infantile, and argumentative against anyone who can't appreciate his work -- but whereas Salieri is an obviously InsufferableGenius, Mozart is insufferable ''and'' a genius, with the former trait being mostly incidental to the latter.

** The biggest one of all: Salieri was a much better composer than the film makes him out to be.

Added DiffLines:

** The film depicts Emperor Joseph II as a hilariously bland UpperClassTwit, completely ignorant of music, who took his opinions from his courtiers, but in fact the reverse was true: Joseph was smart, very opinionated, had taken musical instruction from some very fine teachers, and persistently championed Mozart's music even when his own advisers tried to persuade him that he shouldn't.

* AdaptationalVillainy: Mozart and Salieri liked each other quite a bit in RealLife. It was Count [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Franz_von_Walsegg Franz von Walsegg]] who commissioned the Requiem Mass - and he ''often'' liked to hiring famous composers to write pieces for them and pass them off as his own work.
