* UngratefulBastard: Giovanni to Leporello. During the party, he tries to frame him for his own philandering and threatens to kill him in front of everyone, only to be interrupted by the other characters (so we can never be sure if he planned to go through with it). Later, he gets him to swap clothes with Giovanni himself...and when he runs into an angry mob, sends them after "Giovanni" to save his own skin, even telling them how he is dressed.

''Don Giovanni, or the Rake Punish'd'' is one of the most famous versions of the Don Juan legend and the second joint venture of the composer-librettist team of Creator/WolfgangAmadeusMozart and Lorenzo Da Ponte. As a ''dramma giocoso'' (a genre-busting mix of comedy and drama), the {{opera}} tells the story everyone has heard of and no one actually can narrate beyond saying that the protagonist is TheCasanova, while the Don Juan legend is in fact much older.

* DidYouDie: After the duel at the opening, Leporello asks Don Giovanni, "Who died-- you, or the old man?" The Don [[AskAStupidQuestion considers this a stupid question]].

* BadassBaritone: Despite not being the lowest voice by far - a low tenor can manage the role, though it's never cast that way - Giovanni manages to outwit and out-badass everyone in the opera. Out of the other men, only the the Commendatore's basso profondo can be considered badass - bases Masetto and Leporello are mostly comic characters and Don Ottavio is a tenor.

* 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...

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