* HeWillNotCrySoICryForHim: ''Literally'' true for Princess Laura--because she is a princess and not allowed to openly express her emotions, there is a race of creatures on the island that will do it for her. When she is sad, they wail and produce [[OcularGushers endless streams of tears]]; when she is happy, [[{{Keet}} they bounce around joyfully]].



** HumansAreSpecial: ...except Bobby, how defends it and is thus viewed as an exception (eventually).

* BecauseDestinySaysSo: The speaking stones' prophecies. Although PropheticFallacy and LoopholeAbuse often apply.


Added DiffLines:

* ButNowIMustGo: At first played straight, then subverted with Serendipity.
* CantGetAwayWithNuthin: Peela-Peela, at first, but then he/she ends up becoming a KarmaHoudini.


Added DiffLines:

* CassandraTruth: Without proof of the island's existence, Smudge is reduced to ranting which is promptly ignored by the other humans.


Added DiffLines:

* GoshDangItToHeck: From Bobby at one point. "What the heck was that?"
* LostWorld: The island is this to some degree; this is the reason its discovery by Smudge is so exciting to him, and so distressing to its natives.


Added DiffLines:

* MightyWhitey: Shades of this with Bobby, since the island and its denizens need him to save the day. However Serendipity plays as much of a role, and Bobby's race is never exactly clear despite his pale skin. (Which just makes it a case of HumanityIsSuperior.)

!!Tropes:



* AscendedExtra / DemotedToExtra: Lord Winston manages to be both these tropes at once. He gets a lot more screen-time and characterization than in the original story (wherein he was only known as "the Dolphin"), and is a fairly important character, but he's no longer [[spoiler: one of the rulers of the sea]].
** The Walrus is simply DemotedToExtra. He barely appears at all in the film when in the book he was the first character Serendipity met after hatching, helped her to make her journey across the ocean, and was [[spoiler: the other ruler of the sea]].

Added DiffLines:

* AdaptationExpansion: And how! The original Serendipity Books were mostly stand-alone stories with different characters and settings (with the exception of a few mini-series here and there). Serendipity herself only appeared in one or two books, the plot of which the anime and movie only follow quite vaguely.
