Added DiffLines:

* CountryMouse: Kiki is from a small town in the country and part of her character growth is adapting to and finding her place in a large city.


Added DiffLines:

* FriendlessBackground: A downplayed example. Since Kiki grew up in a small insular town, she's never had friends her age. Her closest companion is Jiji who acts more of a mentor. Part of her growth is learning how to interact with other children.

Added DiffLines:

* SmallRoleBigImpact: Ketto, Madame's granddaughter, is notable for being the RichBitch and snooty {{Foil}} to her grandmother. She's such a brat that she inspires Kiki's bad mood, which mixes with a long and miserable flight home to result in her missing out on Tombo's party, being sick the next day, and eventually losing her powers.

* AlphaBitch[=/=]SpoiledBrat: Two of them, both with ''very'' brief screentime. The first one is a snobby older witch Kiki encounters while flying, and the other is Ketto, the [[RichBitch rich granddaughter]] of Madame (who shows up in the credits sequence as a friend of Kiki and Tombo, so she presumably [[LovableAlphaBitch got better.]])

* AuthorAppeal: Flying sequences, precipitous heights, the beautiful but thoroughly anachronistic Handley Page biplane airliner.

** Later on, while Kiki and Tombo are together, Tombo is asked to come along with a smaller [[http://imgur.com/mOgn0i2 group of kids in what appears to be the same convertible.]] Much to Kiki's chagrin, there's a snobbish girl she once delivered to in the car. The kids in the car are not particularly mean, and actually speak neutrally about Kiki, but her self-consciousness makes her feel like she's a ThirdWheel. She leaves to preserve her dignity.

Added DiffLines:

* ShipperOnDeck: Osono nudges Kiki to get to know Tombo a little better. Kiki doesn't appreciate it when she figures things out.

* DubInducedPlothole: Because Disney thought it was inappropriate for children to drink coffee, the old Streamline dub [[FrothyMugsOfWater altered references from "coffee" to "hot cocoa"]]. This creates a strange scene in which Kiki is asked about putting sugar in her cocoa. This is retained by the Disney subtitled version, which used the Streamline script (see the next trope), creating a sub-induced plothole as well. However, anyone who grew up before the invention of ''instant'' cocoa won't find it so strange.

* MoralGuardians: Concerned Women for America boycotted the movie during its 1998 US debut because the protagonist is a witch and witchcraft is ''evil'', ignoring that it's a lighthearted family film about a young girl finding her way in life.

* AllThereInTheManual: Some things from the book--like why there are bells in the trees around Kiki's house--are never explained in the film.[[note]]Kiki's mother hung the bells to remind Kiki to pull up if she got too low and to warn herself when Kiki crashed.[[/note]] The name of the town Kiki settles in, Koriko, is never mentioned in the film itself.
