* CassandraTruth: They're on the receiving end of one when Dorothy tells them about Oz. Interestingly enough, Aunt Em seems more inclined to believe Dorothy, while Uncle Henry thinks she's been dreaming it all.

* CassandraTruth: They're on the receiving end of one when Dorothy tells them about Oz. Interestingly enough, Aunt Em seems more inclined to believe Dorothy, while Uncle Henry thinks she's been [[AllJustADream dreaming it all.all]] -- ArbitrarySkepticism in that Dorothy reappeared to him in Australia, in ''Ozma of Oz'' after having been lost overboard in a storm on the way there, and has disappeared at least two other times in deadly circumstances only to reappear.



* FishOutOfWater: They have bigger problems adjusting to life in Oz than Dorothy does, and it takes a long time for them to adjust to the grandeur of the Emerald City.

* {{Accidental Hero}}ineHero}}ine: Killed two Wicked Witches without intending to. The first was totally out of her control, more accurately being killed by the tornado, the second she was merely angry and threw a bucket of water at her.

* {{Badass}}: Can ''you'' claim to having snapped the necks of forty crows? I think ''not!'' Generally though, the Scarecrow's more awesome moments tend to come about due to him being TheSmartGuy, rather then through sheer [[BadAss BadAssery.]]
* FamilyUnfriendlyViolence

to:

* {{Badass}}: Can ''you'' claim FamilyUnfriendlyViolence: Is forced to having snapped break the necks of forty crows? I think ''not!'' Generally though, the Scarecrow's more awesome moments tend to come about due to 40 crows who try and attack him being TheSmartGuy, rather then through sheer [[BadAss BadAssery.]]
* FamilyUnfriendlyViolence
and his friends.



* NeckSnap: Can ''you'' claim to having snapped the necks of forty crows? I think ''not!''



* {{Badass}}: Can ''you'' claim to have killed 40 wolves? I think ''not.'' And the badassery doesn't end there. However, the Tinman's still a truly kind soul at heart, and will only raise his ax when he knows innocents to be in danger.

* HeterosexualLifePartners: With the Cowardly Lion. It's most notable in Baum's books, where (post ''TheWonderfulWizardOfOz'') if you encounter one of them, the other is generally not too far away.

* DidYouJustScamCthulhu: Heck, yes. Using nothing more than BS, parlor tricks, and stage technology, he convinces all ''four'' Witches that he's too powerful to challenge.



* MagnificentBastard: And how! He is a very squishy, not physically imposing {{Muggle}}. But the storm blows him to Oz, and within ''weeks,'' using a combination of bluff, cons, and carny tricks, he has fooled ''four'' [[TheArchmage Witches]] into thinking he's way more powerful, maneuvered them into an EnforcedColdWar, set himself up as an unquestioned GodEmperor [[spoiler: And sold the ''real'' heir to the throne into slavery with a low-rent sorceress, bespelled as the incorrect gender to further obfuscate her identity]]. Baum played down the "bastard" part in later books, but modern writers (like ''{{Literature/Wicked}}'' and ''{{Film/OzTheGreatAndPowerful}}'') are apt to play up his questionable moral compass.
