* GettingCrapPastTheRadar: Shakespeare in his usual idiom:
-->I conjure thee by Rosaline’s bright eyes,\\
By her high forehead and her scarlet lip,\\
By her fine foot, straight leg, and quivering thigh,\\
And the demesnes that there adjacent lie\\
- '''Mercutio''', Act 2 Scene 1

* PoorCommunicationKills: This is one of the major things that contributed to Romeo and Juliet's deaths. For instance, Tybalt might not have killed Mercutio and subsequently gotten himself killed by Romeo if he'd kept calm long enough for Romeo to explain that the reason Romeo didn't want to fight him is that Romeo and Juliet had recently gotten married.

* ColorCodedForYourConvenience: Very commonly seen to distinguish the two families and highlight how irreconcilable they are. In Franco Zefirelli's adaptation, the Capulets wear red and the Montagues blue, and the Prince's family wear somber, dark browns. In the 2013 film adaption, the Montagues wear red and Capulets wear blue.

* DeconstructedTrope: LoveAtFirstSight. While the trope's been around since forever and Shakespeare had already played it straight before, in this play he's making it clear that love does not conquer all, and while Fate ''is'' making sure that everything goes as wrong as possible, it's clear that a large portion of the couple's problems are their own fault.

* ''Private Romeo'', a film which uses an all male cast and the original dialogue of the play as a commentary on "Don't Ask, Don't Tell." Romeo is a cadet desperate to get into West Point and Juliet is the new boy to the military academy he attends. [[spoiler:Due to DADT, the school's staff finding out about the fact that the two are in love is their 'death;' no one dies in the film, but they'll both be kicked out of school and any hope of continuing their military careers (including Romeo's dream of West Point) is finished.]]
