* DoubleStandard: All three Largo siblings are [[EvilIsPetty petty]], vindictive, spiteful, philandering "scalpel sluts" addicted to surgery, yet [[{{Narcissist}} Pavi]] and [[PsychopathicManchild Luigi]] are largely considered EvilIsSexy {{Ensemble Darkhorse}}s for it while their sister Amber Sweet is nowhere near as popualr. This, despite how [[ThoseTwoBadGuys the brothers]] are [[BlackComedy full-blown murderers and rapists]] who kill and wear other people's faces on-screen, while Amber is implied to have only ''consensual'' sex for drugs, and is usually [[TheStoner too high]] to actively hurt anyone [[spoiler: till the very end]].) A large part of this is likely due to the fact Creator/ParisHilton was cast as Amber Sweet.

** Given the fans' opinions on Luigi and Pavi, plus the attention they both get throughout the film...
*** And let's take a moment to recall that these are, respectively, the psychotic manchild who will stab anyone at a moment's notice and the guy who rapes and murders women then steals their faces to wear.

** Nathan is a possessive father who deprives his daughter of any contact with the outside world out of a selfish fear of losing her, thus giving her no experience outside of his interactions with her. He also [[spoiler: poisons his own offspring]], which could prove to be the very reason he loses her in the first place. He is an evil captor who has a sympathetic motive.
** Also, does anyone else find it creepy he's so obsessed with Shilo being like his wife? He also buys her some really short clothing.
*** It was mentioned somewhere that Nathan's trying to keep Shilo as a little girl, which is why he buys her clothes that are too small - he's afraid of what her growing up might mean.

* CultClassic

to:

* CultClassicCultClassic: Despite how much professional critics hated the film, it has a small, extremely dedicated fanbase that adores it. The fandom is quite active, despite its small size.



* FriendlyFandoms: With ''Film/TheDevilsCarnival'', due to both being CultClassic musicals with a lot of the same actors involved, and very similar tones and themes. It's to the point where the ''Repo!'' fandom and the ''Carnival'' fandom are basically the same fandom. It's just a matter of which you became a fan of ''first''.



* NarmCharm: Critics complained about the cheesy lyrics, melodramatic performances, odd casting choices, and over-the-top costumes. The fans love it for the exact same reasons.



* TheScrappy: Single Mom, for all that she barely appears in one scene, is seen as incredibly obnoxious. Though Single Mom's been somewhat RescuedFromTheScrappyHeap since the shadowcast performances started, due to the brave shadow actresses who flash the audience live.

to:

* TheScrappy: RootingForTheEmpire: A lot of fans root for Rotti, while fully acknowledging that he's a bastard.

* PainfulRhyme: ''TheMovie!'' It tends to be most obvious in the songs that are less plot-important.

to:

* PainfulRhyme: ''TheMovie!'' It tends to be most obvious in the songs that are less plot-important. Special mention goes to ''Night Surgeon'' when Rotti and Pavi rhyme "money" with "bon-vee-ah-gee" (A butchering of'bon voyage').

** Of the main cast, Blind Mag and Graverobber are actually relatively minor characters, but they have the biggest fan followings. For the former, her status as BrokenBird, OnlySaneMan, and heart-wrenching tale are what make her so beloved. For the latter, his {{LovableRogue}}/{{HandsomeLech}} persona are a big reason why he's so popular, along with his DeadpanSnarker personality.

** Graverobber is actually a relatively minor character, but has one of the biggest fan followings. Single Mom has something of a [[TheScrappy reverse Ensemble Darkhorse]] going on - even though she only appears for a few moments, the fans ''hate'' her.
** Single Mom's been somewhat RescuedFromTheScrappyHeap since the shadowcast performances started, due to the brave shadow actresses who flash the audience live.

** A lot of steampunk/cyberpunk and related communities got very excited prior to the film's release, and while the film does deliver on dystopian sci-fi, pretty much all the steampunk is relegated to the square and a few background repo men over at GeneCo.

** Take a look at the musician list, and see members of Bauhaus, Music/{{Korn}}, Rasputina, and Music/GunsNRoses being credited, then look at the who the music producer is- XJapan's bandleader. And then watch "Seventeen" -- see that Joan Jett cameo? That's right- people WILL have found this film because of rock bands.
