* RestoredMyFaithInHumanity: By the end of the film, he's become dejected after years of people stealing his secret recipes and all five children, even Charlie, fail to measure up to his expectations, and slinks into his office considering the day a waste. When Charlie, accepting that he did fail, chooses to give back the Everlasting Gobstopper rather than sell it to Slugworth, he not only proves himself worthy to Wonka and atones for his mistake, but helps Wonka to see the good in the world again.
-->'''Wonka''': So shines a good deed in a weary world...

* ABirthdayNotABreak: A bit inverted in RealLife for Julie Dawn Cole: While the scene with her character's "demise" after her IWantSong was filmed on October 26, 1970, the actress realized in real life that the date on which it was shot was actually her 13th birthday. There are conflicting accounts on what truly happened: in the DVDCommentary Julie Dawn Cole claims that "'no one wished her a happy birthday" and then she found out that Denise Nickerson would be doing her singing voice and yet on [[http://marquee.blogs.cnn.com/2011/05/26/the-throwback-wonka-star-talks-40th-anniversary these]] [[http://www.celebrityparentsmag.com/on-the-cover-julie-dawn-cole-of-willy-wonka-and-the-chocolate-factory/ interviews]] she says they did celebrate her birthday on set (Gene Wilders even arranged for a color photographer to come on-set and take stills all day which he gave to her for her birthday present). It still end up with her being shove down the chute, though.

* AmbiguousDisorder: The lyrics to "[[IAmSong Simply Second Nature]]" include mention of "all the voices in my head," implying he may be schizophrenic. Not helped by the line being not sung, but rather spoken in a broken-sounding voice. There are other hints dropped that he may not be all that right in the head.

At the very least, he's clearly got a case of schadenfreude.

* 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 realized he is a goodie AND a baddie." Director Creator/SamMendes' take is similar: "Is he [[CoolUncle your mischievous favorite 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."

Added DiffLines:

* VillainSong: Subverted. While not a traditional example, "It Must Be Seen to Be Believed" would not be out of place as one.

* OutsideContextVillain: He's this to the Vermicious Knids (themselves outside context villains to most of humanity) in the sequel. When they take over the space hotel, they have no idea that one of the visitors knows what they are and what they're vulnerable to, and even has a vehicle that's Knidproof!
