* CompleteMonster: Arkady Svidrigailov. This guy ''began'' with raping and killing a 13-year old girl and didn't get any better. ForTheEvulz he had DrivenToSuicide a faithful servant, killed his caring wife, molested and possibly tried to rape Dunya, and God knows what other atrocities he committed. A crazy, sociopathic nutjob who truly beleives that EvilFeelsGood, Svidrigailov could be easily considered the most inhumane and repulsive character of the novel.

* SeinfeldIsUnfunny: Rodya is a college dropout with mental issues, who thinks saving his sister from sexual abuse gives him an excuse to kill someone. Yes, I just described 50% of all ''Series/ColdCase'' episodes.

to:

* MoralEventHorizon: The whole book is an examination of Raskolnikov's belief that someone can justifiably cross the line for the greater good. And he crosses it when he [[spoiler: murders not only the old woman but also her sister for catching him at the scene of the crime.]] He spends the rest of the story suffering from his inability to accept what he did.
** He also ponders his similarities with two other characters who made the same choices and managed to live with what they did. Luzhin framed Sonja for theft for his own purposes and as for Svidrigailov the CompleteMonster entry summarises all his acts in life.

* TheWoobie: The prostitute Sonya, who was forced into it by her family. Raskolnikov and (arguably) Semyon Zakharovich Marmeladov are of the [[JerkassWoobie jerkass variety]].

* DracoInLeatherPants / DoNotDoThisCoolThing: Despite portraying rebellious youth in a very negative light, ''Crime and Punishment'' was popular among radical student groups that basically adopted Raskolnikov as their role model.

* CompleteMonster: Luzhin, dead front and center - he attempts to marry Dunya just so he can be idolized for his compassion in marrying a woman without a dowry, proceeds to freak out about Raskolnikov and insists that he be severed from the family, then tries to frame an innocent girl for theft.

** If Luzhin is one, then Svidrigailov definitely is. Luzhin wants to marry Dunya to receive adoration, Svidrigailov tries to ''rape'' her, plus he was very heavily implied to already be a murderer prior to the novel's beginning. He simultaneously coaches Raskolnikov in the ways of monster-dom and mentally manipulates him for no reason other than that he feels like it. [[FauxAffablyEvil And he never drops his unflappably polite, creepy demeanor during all of this.]]
