%%* BreakoutCharacter* BreakoutCharacter: Invoked, after a fashion. In the shooting script (which was the result of many other drafts from the original script), Gizmo and Stripe were the same character. Steven Spielberg thought Gizmo was too cute to turn into a monster, so insisted that Gizmo and Stripe be different characters and Gizmo remain his cute and cuddly self through the entire film. Once the studio executives saw Gizmo in the film for the first time, they began to realize they'd have a [[TheMerch merchandising dream on their hands.]]



* OhCrap: Happens in both films when Gizmo gets wet.
%%* RidiculouslyCuteCritter

wet. Specifically, in the first film, his weary sigh and depressed shaking his head after the five new Mogwai emerge. You can just tell he knows what's about to happen.
* RidiculouslyCuteCritter: Just look at him! He's adorable!

to:

%%* WeakenedByTheLight* WeakenedByTheLight: Like all Mogwai and Gremlins, bright light is very painful for Gizmo, and direct sunlight will kill him.

* SchmuckBait: Billy follows the three rules of caring for Gizmo to the letter. They are all broken sooner or later.

to:

* SchmuckBait: Billy follows is told the three rules of caring for Gizmo taking care of a Mogwai, and to the letter. be fair does his best to follow them. They are all still broken sooner or later.later, though arguably the worst one (getting Gizmo wet) wasn't really Billy's fault.


Added DiffLines:

* BrokenBird: Downplayed. Kate's got some baggage, but doesn't let it interfere with her life (usually). Nor does it prevent her from standing up to the Gremlins numerous times in both films.

* VillainDecay: Stripe was truly evil and fiendish, and wanted to take over the whole town of Kingston Falls with his gremlin army. He was also much more intelligent. Mohawk, on the other hand, while much more fiendish and wicked when it comes to torture Gizmo, is not as intelligent as his original self and is more focused on creating chaos and havoc on his own, acting as a lone wolf and leaving his brethren to take over the spawning and invasion.

* EvilCounterpart: To Gizmo. Unlike him he's not only frightening but also pure evil.



* {{Sadist}}: He surely loves hurting and/or killing even more than the other Gremlins.
