** The movie scene with Patrick and Courtney sharing a ''surprising'' intimate moment over each other's insecurities of their love lives and how broken as individuals they are. Like everything else, it doesn't come up agaiin.

** Bateman's hero-worship of UsefulNotes/DonaldTrump may be this or HarsherInHindsight. [[RuleOfCautiousEditingJudgement And that's all I will say.]]

* CompleteMonster: [[VillainProtagonist Patrick Bateman]] is a [[PoliticallyIncorrectVillain despicable]] and {{narcissist}}ic [[AxCrazy psychopath]] who moonlights as a horrific [[SerialKiller mass murderer]] while keeping up his public image as a [[MorallyBankruptBanker stock broker]]. Bateman's career of torture and murder having started for [[ForTheEvulz no discernible reason]], his most frequent act of depravity is luring [[WouldHitAGirl women]] to his apartment, then brutally [[SerialRapist raping]] and [[CruelAndUnusualDeath butchering them in the most horrifying ways he can imagine]]. Be it nailing them to the floor, lopping their heads off, or bisecting them with a chainsaw, Bateman indulges in every act of sick cruelty he can muster, and even delves into [[ImAHumanitarian cannibalizing his victims]]. Bateman's evil is so [[EvilIsPetty petty]] and unpredictable that he disembowels vagrants after giving them pep talks, [[AnAxeToGrind takes an axe]] to one of his associates for, among other slights, having a better business card than him, and tortures defenseless animals. One of his crowning moments of vileness comes when Bateman [[SlashedThroat slashes]] a [[WouldHurtAChild child]]'s throat, then pretends to be a doctor trying to save him, just to see how it feels, quickly deciding it isn't as fulfilling as killing someone who has lived a full life and thus loses more when he ends them. After going on a slaughter spree throughout his city, gunning down every one he sees, Bateman comes to the conclusion that he is completely and totally wicked with no capability of care or compassion for others. Though the idea that some of his crimes were imagined by him is implied, Bateman's character is nevertheless pure evil. Driven by his sadism and pathological desire to be important, Patrick Bateman fully earns the various terms he is referred to as: an inhuman, a ghoul, and a monster.
