Added DiffLines:

* TheHeroSucksSong: "Milch" and "Kitsch" are both about Elisabeth's vanity and selfishness.


Added DiffLines:

* VillainSong: Almost every song could be seen as this, depending on your point of view, but the most obvious examples are "Der letzte Tanz", "Kitsch", "Hass", and "Die Schatten werden länger".

Added DiffLines:

* AdaptationalVillainy:
** In some productions Death is presented as Elisabeth's true love, and so is supposed to be seen as an AntiVillain at worst. In others, he's definitely the villain.
** Lucheni is always a {{Jerkass}}, but some productions make him even more of one.

Added DiffLines:

* CrazyJealousGuy: Death's reaction to Elisabeth rejecting him is to stalk her all her life, convince her son to commit suicide, and get Lucheni to assassinate her.

* DeathGlare: [[IncrediblyLamePun Guess who?]] In the 2007 Takarazuka version in particular, Death has some truly terrifying glares.

* DeathAndTheMaiden: Death and Sisi are in the same pose as the trope picture at the end (both are fully clothed in white), after he's [[spoiler: kissed her.]]

Added DiffLines:

* DramaticIrony: Played for comedic effect during "Die Maladie". In productions where it's very obvious Doctor Seeburger is actually Death, the audience knowing that Death is actually the one saying "If I'm not mistaken... ''and I never am...'' this is that certain malady." makes the line all the funnier. It sounds like he's deliberately, gleefully {{Troll}}ing her.

* EvilIsCool: You can't possibly toss a ball into a room filled with ''{{Theatre/Elisabeth}}'' fans without hitting someone who loves the show because of Death, whether it be AllGirlsWantBadBoys or LoveToHate. He's snazzy in every version. Into OtherworldlyAndSexuallyAmbiguous? There's Uwe Kröger and an entire fleet of Takarazuka actresses. Adore HellBentForLeather? There's Mark Seibert and the rest of the new Deaths in the German/Austrian productions. Somewhere in between? Hello, Máté Kamarás. The show is very often marketed as a love story between Elisabeth and Death, and/or a triangle if you add Franz Joseph.

Added DiffLines:

* PostKissCatatonia: There's an example that overlaps with the KissOfDeath in the Toho production with Shirota Yuu as Death and Furukawa Yuta as Rudolf. Inverted in that Rudolf is the one that initiates the kiss, and also the one who's left staring blankly as Death walks away. [[spoiler: He then shoots himself.]]
