Added DiffLines:

* TheMillstone: In the 1971 movie, he's pretty much a bad influence on Charlie all the way through. He tells Charlie not to read the contract he signs at the beginning of the tour, he talks him into trying the fizzy lifting drinks, which almost gets both of them killed and leads to the infamous "You get nothing!" outburst, and after said outburst, he suggests giving the Gobstopper to Slugworth as revenge. [[spoiler:Charlie doesn't, and this is what earns him the factory.]]

** Somewhat subverted in the 2005 film: Violet grows to around 10 feet in diameter but her clothes, though visibly stretched, still manage to somewhat stay on, though barely enough to conceal her modesty -- her shiny, blubbery belly is fully visible. They also, for some strange reason, turn a darker shade of blue ''with'' her -- perhaps blueberry juice?

to:

* UngratefulBastard: Lampshaded. He ''hates'' chocolate and has no business or reason to ever go to one, let alone Wonka's amazing factory. Yet he won't give up his ticket, to allow another child who would appreciate the prize, take his place.

Added DiffLines:

** Invoked as an EstablishingCharacterMoment by Gene Wilder. He requested the scene so that the audience would immediately understand how unpredictable Wonka would be.

* BowtiesAreCool: He has a bowtie in the 1971 film and in both Michael Foreman and Quentin Blake's illustrations. (In the case of the Blake illustrations, it's an enormous bowtie to boot!)

* WindowsOfTheSoul: The book's introductory description of Mr. Wonka's appearance gives special attention to his blue eyes, noting them as "most marvelously bright. They seemed to be sparkling and twinkling at you all the time. The whole face, in fact, was alight with fun and laughter." In hindsight, this is a clear sign of his merry, mischevious {{Trickster}} nature.

* IconicOutfit: His ensemble -- purple coat, white shirt, floral WaistcoatOfStyle, bowtie, brown trousers and matching top hat -- is the go-to image for pop culture depictions of the character to this day, superseding the more garish/mismatched suit of the novel.

* ConspicuousGloves: Downplayed. While Mr. Wonka wears gloves in the novel, that's in service to his outdated RummageSaleReject look. The pale purple gloves the 2005 Wonka wears seem just a bit...off by comparison. [[spoiler: It turns out that the gloves and his tunic-esque shirt are similar to those of Dr. Wilbur Wonka's dentist scrubs. Willy's fashion sense is, unconciously, partially inspired by his father.]]

* AmbiguouslyEvil and/or AntiHero?: He could leave [[CharlieAndTheChocolateParody parody Wonkas who are presented as wicked]] quaking. He's unnervingly [[LargeHam hammy]] and can even do an EvilLaugh; he won't give a drop of sympathy to those who imperil themselves in his dangerous, temptation-filled world -- [[DeathByAdaptation even if they should perish]]! Once the brats pass the point of no return in disobeying him, he tends to stand back and let them suffer through their karmic punishments/humiliations (when Veruca goes through the gate to the Nut Room's arena, he thoughtfully ''relocks it behind her'' -- for the others' protection or her punishment?). While he does set his Oompa-Loompas to work rescuing Augustus and Violet offstage, it's suggested Veruca and her father can't be saved from the incinerator, and as for Mike, [[spoiler: he has no qualms letting Mrs. Teavee just take the now-shrunken boy home, as she prefers him in this state]]. '''''Still...'''''[[HiddenDepths he's sensitive in the best ways as well as the worst]] and capable of amazing generosity to those who win his favor. This darker portrayal is by design; David Greig, who wrote the book of the musical, noted in a Twitter chat that while the novel has NoAntagonist, "I started to wonder about the dark side of Willy and realised he is a goodie AND a baddie." Director Creator/SamMendes' take is similar: "Is he [[CoolUncle your mischievous favourite uncle]]? Or is he [[{{Satan}} the devil incarnate]]? Is he in control of the Oompa-Loompas? Or are they in control of themselves? You can't work it out."

* HairOfGoldHeartOfGold: In the 1971 film and Quentin Blake's illustrations, Charlie is blonde. He is the only kid who isn't spoiled, mean, greedy, stupid, or otherwise unworthy of Willy Wonka's favor, apart from succumbing to temptation once in the 1971 film, and he acknowledges that what he did was wrong and apologises for it.

* NewMediaAreEvil: His Oompa-Loompa song in the book and the 2005 film is mostly a long diatribe against television.

* FreudianExcuse: It's implied that she has been shaped into [[GoGetterGirl what]] [[GlorySeeker she]] [[AlphaBitch is]] by her StageMom. And, contrary to the other kids whose vices are more the consequences of bad parenting methods, Mrs Beauregarde willingly turned her into a bratty GlorySeeker.
