** Bateman's admiration of UsefulNotes/DonaldTrump may become this, {{Funny Aneurysm Moment}}s, or HarsherInHindsight, depending on one's point of view.

* DeathOfTheAuthor: Explored in ''Literature/LunarPark''. Ellis sees his characters slipping away from him, and the more they get interpreted by his audience, the more he loses control over them.

** [[DisposableSexWorker Christie.]] After sex, Bateman beats her up so badly that she ends up in the hospital. He seeks her out again, and she's so desperate for the money that she agrees to go to his apartment a second time. [[spoiler: She nearly escapes, but [[YankTheDogsChain dies from an expertly timed ax-throw from Bateman.]]]]

* ChaoticEvil: Patrick Bateman offers an interesting case of a blood-crazed ChaoticEvil individual essentially camouflaging himself in a Lawful or even NeutralEvil environment (that is to say, Wall Street), where his dead-eyed narcissism and rampant, violent misogyny are simply par for the course.

** There's also Bateman's little speech towards the beginning of both the movie and the book, where he mentions all the "hot button" topics of the 80s, mention how "we need to do this, do that, do this, etc"... while completely failing to even begin explaining how he plans on fixing said problems, mirroring the "feel good" politics of the 80s that pumped up confidence in America while failing to solve any real problems.

* CompleteMonster: The truly despicable main character [[VillainProtagonist Patrick Bateman]] is a vapid, {{greed}}y, Manhattanite stock broker by day, and a remorseless [[TheSociopath sociopath]] and {{serial killer}} by night. He [[WouldHitAGirl murders and tortures women]] in the most sexually {{sadist}}ic and [[CruelAndUnusualDeath horrific ways]] imaginable, callously kills his colleagues over the [[EvilIsPetty pettiest of slights]], [[ImAHumanitarian eats the brains of some of his victims]] and [[ILoveTheDead experiments with the corpses]], and actually thinks [[WouldHurtAChild murdering a child]] isn't evil ''enough'' because he wants the death to affect more people. He eventually goes on a destructive rampage through the city, killing several cops and numerous innocents who get in his way. While the story plays with the notion of whether [[UnreliableNarrator all the events happened as described]], the novel and its [[TheFilmOfTheBook movie adaptation]] [[TropeMaker completely construct the idea of the Complete Monster]]. Bateman himself eventually [[CardCarryingVillain concludes that he is a walking nightmare whose inhumanity and cruelty know no bounds]], and whose only discernable emotions are pride, hatred, and disgust.
