* 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.

* {{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.]]
