Now husband and wife, feel the strain and the strife!
— Erik commenting on Mavis and Johnny's argument

  • Some fans thought he would be the villain. However, that was not true. 
  • Owing to the rights of the character from Universal, he was thought to "literally" be a disfigured phantom (or ghost) instead of a disfigured human as he was in the original novel, play, and films. However, this isn't the case.
  • The music he plays is actually to some tocatta and fugge in d-minor which would make sense because it has a chilling tone.
  • He is the only Universal Monster that did not appear in the first movie , but appears in the sequel if he was in the first film it was probably off-screen.
  • In the credits, he is referred to as simply "Phantom of the Opera" and he is never addressed with a name in the film.
  • His appearance is more like the handsomer portrayals of the character (such as on Broadway) as opposed to the more horror oriented versions (such as Lon Chaney's).
  • Some of his deformity isn't covered by his mask as seen on the right side of his face.
  • Jon Lovitz voicing both Erik and Quasimodo is a reference to Lon Chaney, The Man of a 1,000 Faces, who also potrayed both Quasimodo and Erik in the silent film era.
