* WritersCannotDoMath: Leporello says that Giovanni has bedded one thousand and eight hundred women. Adding the numbers up gives the actual total as two thousand and sixty-five.

* HandsomeLech: Oh, take a wild guess.

* HandsomeLech: Oh, take a wild guess. Don Giovanni is definitely TheCasanova in terms of his conquests, but character-wise he has just as much in common with the {{Jerkass}} elements of this trope.

In short, the plot covers a single day where everything that can go wrong does go wrong for the [[VillainProtagonist hero]] and can most easily be presented through its characters:

* DroitDuSeigneur: Masetto is GenreSavvy enough to suspect that Giovanni is hoping to try this with Zerlina.

* DroitDuSeigneur: Masetto is GenreSavvy enough to suspect that Giovanni is hoping to try this with Zerlina. He's not wrong.

* InsaneForgiveness: Donna Elvira is willing to forgive everything if Giovanni just loves her. Also, surprisingly, despite all his scariness, the commander. What do you do if someone tries to rape your daughter, kills you and mocks your grave and you know this man has just a few more ours to live? Gloat back, just wait to really enjoy just seeing him go to hell? Of course not, you come back from the grave in a desparate attempt to save his soul from hell...

Added DiffLines:

* GreenEyedMonster: Masetto. Though, to be fair, what man wouldn't be jealous if Don Giovanni was hitting on his wife?

* ReallyGetsAround: This is Don Giovanni's character in a nutshell - [[LampshadeHanging lampshaded]] with Leporello's recounting of his list of women. Giovanni has, in Leporello's accounting, slept with 2,065 women in total. In other words, an average of one woman ''every night'' for ''five years, eight months, and two weeks''.

* ActorAllusion: During the dinner scene, Giovanni's musicians play the melody of ''Non piu andrai'', [[Theatre/TheMarriageOfFigaro Figaro's]] most enduring tune. Leporello remarks "I know this one all too well". The actor playing Leporello when the opera debuted in Prague had also played Figaro in ''Theatre/TheMarriageOfFigaro'' (which had been well-received in Prague).

(The parts have a similar vocal range, and so many singers have played both Leporello and Figaro.)
