Added DiffLines:

* BetaCouple: Mephistopheles and Martha act as a parody of this, in contrast to Faust and Gretchen's dramatically serious relationship. Martha is actively interested in Mephistopheles, but of course he doesn't return her feelings, even though he does flirt with her (mostly because he is the type who can and will flirt with anyone including mortal human women, Ancient Greek lamiae and cute male angels).

* GettingCrapPastTheRadar: Several scenes were actually censored for ''not'' managing to be double entendre enough, specifically some of the scenes on Walpurgis Night. There is still plenty of material around.
