Added DiffLines:

* AdaptationalHeroism: In the book, the cat is ''extremely'' egotistical and aloof, only helping Coraline if he happened to be in the area anyway and if helping her didn't hinder him any. In the film, he's her MysteriousProtector and ServileSnarker, often going out of his way to watch over her, warn her against and save her from the Other Mother even when she's very rude to him.


Added DiffLines:

* CassandraTruth: Tries to warn Coraline about the danger of the Other World. She doesn't listen.


Added DiffLines:

* ChekhovsSkill: His ability to effortlessly track and kill rats sent by the Other Mother to spy on and make life hard for Coraline comes in handy [[spoiler:after one of them nearly makes off with the last ghost eye, almost costing her the game]].
** The first time he talks to Coraline, he brags about cats having ''far'' superior senses to humans, able to see and smell things they can't. This turns out not to be empty bragging near the end when [[spoiler:he's able to pinpoint the sound of fingers rubbing against glass, helping her find her parents ''just'' in time to rescue them.]]


Added DiffLines:

* FurryReminder: Though he's voiced by [[BadassBaritone Keith David]], after mentioning that he heard something "right... over..." he meows like a regular cat and rushes off to find prey.
** Though intelligent enough to understand human speech (and talk in the Other World), at one point he wakes Coraline by gently patting her nose with his paw, and she wakes to see [[http://i10.servimg.com/u/f10/16/09/70/40/vlcsna10.png his face hovering close to hers, starring unblinking and purring.]] [[TruthInTelevision Most cat owners will tell you that is]] ''[[ShownTheirWork very]]'' [[ShownTheirWork kitty-like behavior.]]


Added DiffLines:

* ScrewThisImOuttaHere: After Coraline [[spoiler:launches him at the Other Mother's face at the end]], he lets out one last angry yowl before ditching them both.


Added DiffLines:

* VerbalTic: The tall ghost girl to the left often calls Coraline "girl."
-->Hurry on, girl!\\
You're in terrible danger, girl!

Added DiffLines:

* KarmicDeath: She ''seems'' like a KarmaHoudini first, since [[spoiler: we never see her again after Coraline escapes the Other World]]. But considering that she [[spoiler: literally feeds off the souls of children]], it's safe to say that she [[spoiler: starved to death, all alone]].

Added DiffLines:

* {{Irony}}: With those massive boobs of hers, you'd expect her to be the one needing a walker. Instead it's her partner.
