Added DiffLines:

* SignatureScene: The scene where Firo regenerates his fingers and the scene where Ladd brutally murders a Lemure randie are easily the most well-known and remembered scenes in the show.

* MoralEventHorizon:
** Fermet has committed so many atrocities that it's difficult to peg just which one qualifies--though [[spoiler:killing Monica]] is a good start.
** Szilard crossed it when he [[spoiler:murdered Maiza's brother]].



* TheScrappy: [[{{Jerkass}} Dallas]] and [[TheIngenue Eve]]. To be fair though, Dallas at least seems to be intentionally unlikeable.

* TheScrappy: [[{{Jerkass}} Dallas]] and [[TheIngenue Eve]].Eve]] are among the least popular characters in the cast. To be fair though, Dallas at least seems to be intentionally unlikeable. With Eve, most fans tend to just find her boring.

Added DiffLines:

* CounterpartComparison: Ladd Russo is frequently compared to ComicBook/TheJoker. Given the fact that both are lunatics with a love of killing, a jovial demeanor and always sporting a maniacal grin, as well as essentially being the poster boys for BrightIsNotGood, this isn't surprising.

* GodModeSue: Surprisingly averted with Claire. The writer has stated that the reason he doesn't get his own plot line is because of how easily he could overtake the entire series.

* SugarWiki/AwesomeMusic: The opening piece, [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3wInHktd7hU Guns & Roses]], is [[Anime/CowboyBebop Tank!-level]] in terms of [[AwesomeMusic/{{Anime}} awesome]]. Also the [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SI76wS6tlKs Baccano! Theme]].

* DracoInLeatherPants: [[BigBad Fermet]] and [[MadScientist Huey]] are baffling examples; there exist a small but loud fraction of the fanbase who perceive Fermet's [[TortureTechnician abuse]] as his [[{{Yandere}} twisted]] way of showing "love" to [[{{Shotacon}} Czeslaw]] (ignoring the fact that Czes learned a long time ago that Fermet never truly cared about him and [[ForTheEvulz only took enjoyment in seeing him in pain]]), and who insist that Huey is at least a tiny bit regretful about his treatment of his daughters, even though it's made abundantly clear that he doesn't care about either of them, would off them both in a second, and views them as nothing but experiments - ''that failed''.

* SuperlativeDubbing: The English dub's Noo Yawk accents and '30s slang make it a rather more immersive experience.
* UnpopularPopularCharacter: Ladd is not very well liked by most of the cast in Baccano [[AxCrazy for good]] [[ThereIsNoKillLikeOverKill reason]]. Even his own family thinks he's out of his gourd, and they're TheMafia. Most viewers of Baccano though categorize him as CrazyAwesome and [[WordOfGod Narita]] admits that Ladd is his favorite character.

** If you're watching the anime, it's safe to say that anything Ladd does ([[spoiler: except killing Czeslaw, but he got better]]) is this.

* MemeticMolester: Fermet.

to:

* MemeticMolester: Fermet.Fermet, due to how creepily intimate he liked to get towards eternally ten-years-old [[spoiler:Czeslaw]]--while ''torturing him'' no less. Notably, Fermet is a rare case of this trope NOT being played for BlackComedy, as a good number of fans are legitimately concerned that part of the reason [[spoiler:Czeslaw]] is so messed up is because Fermet [[RapeAsBackstory stole his virginity]].

** Lebreau [[BigBad Fermet]] Viralesque, another of the original immortals, was the caretaker of the immortal child Czeslaw Meyer. However, once they were immortal, Fermet revealed his true colors as a vicious {{sadist}} who [[WouldHurtAChild tortured Czeslaw]] for years and years, with new, inventive ways, ranging from throwing him into a roaring fireplace, to making him bathe in acid. The excuse was to [[ForScience test the limits of immortality]]. The truth was simply sadism. Then we find out that he's the reason why [[ReligionOfEvil SAMPLE]], a cult whose members tortures children in the hope that the children will receive any pain directed at themselves, really spread across the world. He also killed [[MadScientist Huey]]'s wife Monica, giving [[TheSociopath Huey]] his StartOfDarkness. To top it off, he sets things up so that Niki, a woman who loved him and who was a close friend of Huey and Elmer, would be killed[[note]]or horribly scarred, as it turns out[[/note]], and then tells Elmer and Huey that their bomb did it just to see the pain on their faces. He does all of this out of [[ForTheEvulz pure sadism and finds it fun]]. He's even more dangerous than Szilard, because as the latter may enjoy killing and devouring others, he at least doesn't kill without [[PragmaticVillainy some sort of practical reason]] (even if that reason is simply because his victim has something he wants). Fermet will murder and betray everyone [[ForTheEvulz just for fun]], even the people who love him. ''Especially'' the people who love him.

** Illness goes through much suffering throughout her life, with hardly any bright spots. She has an extremely [[ColdBloodedTorture harsh]] [[ChildrenForcedToKill past]] that causes her to feel alienated from others to the point where she doesn't even consider herself human. [[spoiler: The conclusion to her part of 2002 (having her be forced to be the leader of SAMPLE, the cult that tortured her during her childhood) only makes matters worse.]]
