* CursedWithAwesome: A meta example with Haru's transformation into a CatGirl. She's upset by this and spends the second half of the film trying to reverse the transformation, whereas many {{furr|yFandom}}ies would embrace it.

* DeadToBeginWith: In the original manga, [[spoiler:all the cats from Cat Kingdom are spirits that chose to stay behind and live on their own private world. It also leads to a small Tearjerker when Haru realizes that her childhood friend Yuki was dead all along.]] The manga heavily implies that [[spoiler:Muta is a spirit as well.]]

* {{Freeze Sneeze}}[=/=]{{Plot Allergy}}: Haru wakes up sneezing the morning after her first visit by the cats. The English dub seems to attribute this to the cattails planted outside her window - she later tells the messenger that she's allergic to them. She doesn't say this (or at least not explicitly) in the Japanese version or in the manga, and as the cattails were planted elsewhere in the manga, it appears she was just cold from her bedclothes being out of place.

* StandardHeroReward: Deconstructed throughout the film. For saving the prince of the cat kingdom, Haru is offered his paw in marriage. At first she's hesitant about making a gentle refusal, but the idea of being married to a cat horrifies her. She goes to the Baron for advice on how to get out of this, since the cats don't exactly take "no" for an answer. It also turns out that [[spoiler:Prince Lune was in love with another cat, and was in the human world to get a special food for her.]]

Added DiffLines:

** It is actually NOT that weird. A "Von X" surname usually has the X refer to a place (either a town or landmark [such as castles, rivers, etc]). If the Baron comes from the Cat Kingdom as well, then it might as well be a place there which would make his name perfectly legit.

** Notably, part of the reason for her annoyance with it isn't that she's been turned into a CatGirl... When she's dancing with Baron, he has to remind her to be herself, because, in her head, she's with this handsome aristocrat who is drop dead gorgeous...



* {{Dubtitle}}: Disney's DVD release, unfortunately.

* ImagineSpot: Haru has a brief one about being declared "cat husband and wife," in the traditional Japanese style. She lets out a BigNo about it.

* BadassAdorable: Haru. It takes guts to run into traffic with a lacrosse stick to rescue a cat from becoming roadkill, ''and'' succeed. Later on, she stands up to the Cat King when he tries to propose to her, after nearly forcing her to marry his son.


Added DiffLines:

* TheCallKnowsWhereYouLive: After saving the cat prince, Haru is immediately inundated with cat gifts, and then talking with an envoy from the Cat Kingdom to offer the marriage to the prince. When she goes to the Baron to get help, they find her there right when she's about to leave. This leads to Haru getting swept away to the Cat Kingdom.

* SpeaksFluentAnimal: [[DownplayedTrope Downplayed.]] As a child Haru claimed she could talk to cats, but forgot about this ability as she grew older. After saving Lune, she suddenly rediscovers it. It's left ambiguous as to whether this is actually an ability Haru possesses, or if the cats themselves are secretly able to speak and only show this to certain people. In the case of the Baron and Toto, their speech seems to stem from the fact that they're magical artifacts to begin with.
