* BearsAreBadNews: Mor'du learns this lesson the hard way [[spoiler: when Elinor as transformed into a bear fights him in combat, and he gets crushed by the monolith, releasing his spirit.]]



* MamaBear: Pun completely intended. The filmmakers specifically went for a motherly animal for Elinor to turn into. The trope comes into full effect in the climax, [[spoiler:when Elinor rips out of her restraints, and kills a supernatural bear far bigger than her own bear form, in order to protect her daughter.]]

** "Mordu" may possibly be related to the Latin "mortus" (death), and also means "bitten" in French, which makes sense when you consider that King Fergus's left leg was bitten off.

Added DiffLines:

** The attempt to re-design Merida with a slimmer waist, more revealing neckline, larger eyes and a sparkly dress, apparently went contrary to the film's message, with the public criticizing the attempted makeover for allegedly disempowering Merida, sparking outrage from mothers and feminist groups who saw the new, re-designed Merida as "an overly sexualized pin-up version of her former self". Female empowerment website ''A Mighty Girl'' argued "by making her skinnier, sexier and more mature in appearance, you are sending a message to girls that the original... version of Merida is inferior; that for girls and women to have value... they must conform to a narrow definition of beauty." The petition received over 20,000 signatures in seven days, and Disney removed the re-designed version of Merida from their website, and decided to keep Merida's original design.

* ThriftyScot: Downplayed; after Merida decides to celebrate the young lords being allowed to find love in their own time, Merida decides the King's private drink cellar should be opened up for a victory toast, and King Fergus decides to use the small cups.



* FlatCharacters: They never evolve beyond pranking and eating. Even helping Merida was because she promised them her desserts for a year.
