Added DiffLines:

* UnusuallyUninterestingSight: No one seems to react much to the sight of a pig man walking around, although people certainly ''recognize'' Porco on sight.

Added DiffLines:

* EstablishingCharacterMoment: Curtiss -- pointedly known as "The American" -- and his well-meaning but ham-handed attempt to curtail some rudeness. When a couple of loudmouth reporters try to interview Porco in the middle of Gina's song, Curtiss walks over, hoists them into the air, carries them away, and then slams them down at another table with a parting warning to shut up, inadvertently causing a much larger scene than the one he was trying to prevent.

* StayInTheKitchen: Despite Fio (a) rebuilding and improving a one-of-a-kind plane (b) under the noses of the secret police (c) standing up to every armed pirate in the Adriatic [[spoiler:(d) going on to be a major industrialist]], Curtiss thinks of her as just a StandardHeroReward.

Added DiffLines:

* SticksTheLanding: Curtiss after revealing himself in Porco's hideout ready for the rematch Fio set up. He jumped off the cliff, did a front flip, and stuck the landing. True, he climbed about halfway down the cliff first, but that was still a good 30 feet.

* ReusedCharacterDesign: Fio looks very similar to Nausicaa from ''Nausicaa of the Valley of the Wind'', another Ghibli movie; Miyazaki has a tendency to recycle character models.

Made even more humorous when you realize Fio doesn't kill an insect but peacefully convinces it to fly away in one scene.

Creator/HayaoMiyazaki's {{homage}} to the early days of aviation and cinema, ''Porco Rosso'' tells the story of a renowned Italian fighter pilot, a veteran of the First World War who has been mysteriously transformed into a pig. During TheRoaringTwenties, Porco Rosso, the 'Red Pig' makes his living as a mercenary, flying a crimson seaplane and doing battle with pirates. Things really start to get interesting for Porco when the pirates, tired of having their butts handed to them by a pig, hire Donald Curtis, a famed American aviator, to take him down. Pursued by the Fascist military he deserted years ago, Porco gains a teenage sidekick, Fio, and takes the fight to the pirates. What follows is an epic journey of self-discovery and general badassery in the great Ghibli tradition. It's got all the hallmarks of a Miyazaki movie; strong women, flying machines, air-pirates and an undertone of the supernatural.

Like a few of Miyazaki's other works the film is based on an [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Age_of_the_Flying_Boat earlier manga he wrote.]]

* ATeamFiring: Lots of bullets are fired, but no people (or pigs) are ever hit. Invoked for Porco whom Boss says won't shoot a fellow pilot in a dog-fight, but with all of the lead in the air you'd expect someone to get hit if only by accident.
