Added DiffLines:

** Musically, the part at the end of the overture gives a strong sense that, while you're in for a good time, it won't end well. Whenever that motif pops up again in the score, you know there's unpleasantness ahead (e.g. when Carmen gives Jose the flower; when he comes back and sings to her about how he kept it the whole time he was in prison).

** Male version: A subverted male version in Don José and Escamillo for CarmenCarmen. Escamillo ''seems'' like the Veronica, due to his dangerous and exciting profession, but it turns out Don José is the truly violent one.

** Don Jose also fits this trope - behind his façade of propriety is a violent and dangerous individual. He is in the army when the opera begins, because he got into a fight (and probably killed the person who started it) over a game of ''tennis''.
