* AntiClimaxBoss: [[BigBad Roarke]] at the end of the film. [[spoiler: Justified by his PowerDegeneration.]]
* ContestedSequel: Either the movie was a improvement of the previous movie or the worst of the two films.
* EnsembleDarkhorse: Moreau.
** If you're not a fan of the NarmCharm, it goes extra for Nadya as well. Her entire story is perhaps the only good thing about the film.
* FridgeBrilliance: Idris Elba playing a [[Film/{{Thor}} guardian warrior]] monk.
** Why is the Rider so ''[[AxCrazy incredibly psychotic]]'' in the film? Johnny's been keeping him locked away. He hasn't had any fun in a long time, and suddenly he's been given carte blanche to do whatever it takes to find [[AntiChrist Danny]]. Let the slaughter begin!
*** Could also explain why Johnny himself acts so absolutely friggin' ''nuts'' through the whole movie, and actually seems to calm down during the period when he's de-powered. It's repeatedly said that the fallen angel that inhabits him is literally insane.
** The Rider's line in the first trailer released on-line also shows that in addition to being completely out there in terms of his brutality, he also has a disturbed sense of humor when he kills someone.
--->'''Ghost Rider:''' Roadkill.
* HamAndCheese: Nicolas Cage is ''clearly'' having fun this time around.
* NarmCharm: The Movie.
* NightmareFuel: Ghost Rider has been turned into a complete psychopath. His movements, rather than being methodical and stern like you'd expect, are erratic and generally unhinged. He doesn't speak much, either. He just ''laughs.''
** Blackout's corpse-like appearance and his ability to dissolve people/things just by touching them.
*** The circle of bodies he leaves behind from one of his attacks. They look sort of like soap mummies... [[MoodWhiplash with green vegetation growing from them and birds chirping cheerfully in the bright sun]].
