*CompleteMonster: In this 1926 film, [[BigBad Mephisto]], stymied in his efforts to unleash the Four Horsemen on the Earth, makes a bet with an angel, over whether he can [[TheCorrupter corrupt the soul]] of Doctor Faust. Spreading disease throughout Faust's hometown—and murdering a priest when the latter notices his presence—Mephisto offers convinces Faust to [[DealWithTheDevil sell him his soul in exchange for the power to heal his neighbours]]. When Faust's neighbours turn on him, Mephisto turns the doctor into a younger man, and takes him to Parma, where he forces the Duchess of Parma to fall in love with Faust, then kills her husband in a duel. He later forces Gretchen, an innocent girl, to fall in love with Faust, only to [[FrameUp subsequently frame Faust and her]] for the murder of her mother and brother, resulting in her being burned at the stake, and Faust [[DrivenToSuicide committing suicide]].

* AlternativeCharacterInterpretation: Even in individual versions, there is considerable variation in how characters in the story are treated. Faust -- driven to his bargain from love or suffering mankind, or looking for a cheap and easy way to lord it over others? Mephistopheles -- AntiHero seeking to subvert God's injustice, or diabolical hater wanting to damn others to his own misery? Wagner? Gretchen? The Emperor? God? The variations are endless.
