- Big-Lipped Alligator Moment: The titular ghost. It clearly only exists to justify the title.
- Heartwarming Moments: The monster once again befriends a little girl. ...Only this time, he doesn't put a scratch on her, and even gets her ball down from the roof. (Even if it all goes downhill from there)
- Memetic Mutation: The Monster going blind is where we get the immortal image of him stumbling around with his arms outstretched.
- Moral Event Horizon: The Monster crosses this when he demands that Frankenstein put a little girl's brain into his head after kidnapping her from her home. And then he crushes poor old Ygor to death!
- The Monster probably didn't know the implications of what he was asking for. He was more of a Lenny from Of Mice & Men. He probably thought it would be nice to have a girl brain, without realizing it would kill her, put her in his body, and kill him too.
- Ygor crossed the Horizon years ago, but even so, his desire to usurp his friend's body so he can live forever deserves dishonorable mention.
- Replacement Scrappy: Ludwig is often mocked as a poor replacement for the previous film's Wolf, lacking his intriguing moral ambiguity and just being a dull straightforward hero.
- Sequelitis: This film is considered not to be as good as it's predecessors and it was the first without Karloff as the Monster.
YMMV / The Ghost of Frankenstein
