* WifeHusbandry: Isn't Fio a ''little'' young for Curtis?
** She is 17, and Curtis can't be much older if he still looks young in the 1940s.
** Furthermore, 17 is the age of consent in plenty of civilized, first-world countries. Some places even go as low as 16 or 14, so 17 really isn't objectively bad at all. This is a matter of an individual getting his set of moral guidelines from whatever society he's raised in rather than a matter of what is inherently right or wrong. Even further, that kind of age difference was the expected norm long ago. This is a testament to the fact that if we were currently living in those days or in another country, we'd have no moral objection to it whatsoever, and that people only believe it's wrong because their society has told them it is.

* ThePowerOfLove: What inspires Porco to [[HeroicSecondWind get up and win the fight]], and may be what turns him back into a man, though perhaps Porco simply let go of his cynicism.

* ObliviousToLove: Porco does not appear to be aware of the fact that Gina is in love with him. It takes Curtiss painfully beating it into him--followed by a comment from Gina herself--for it to stick. Sort of.

* GoodOldFisticuffs: What the epic air fight between Porco and Curtiss boils down to after both their guns fail.

* NoEndorHolocaust: The duel ends up bringing both planes above a crowd, and [[MoralDissonance neither Porco nor Curtiss apparently see a problem]] with maintaining the fight over an area packed with innocent spectators. Tons of property damage ensues, but somehow the stray gunfire only hits inanimate objects.

* EvenEvilHasStandards: The Sky Pirates, despite being pirates, are actually a pretty honorable lot. Even though they take entire class of little girls hostage, they don't do anything to hurt them and even take the entire class because they're concerned about splitting them up. They are also easily shamed out of murdering Porco by Fio, who appeals to their sense of honor.

** Whoever wrote the headlines on the "Giornale del mare" newspaper did not have full knowledge of Italian, but they're clearly understandable by speakers of the language - and few others, as they aren't translated.
