* AdaptedOut: Does not appear in the 1939 movie, since her character has been [[CompositeCharacter marged with that of Glinda]], and given the popularity of the movie a ''lot'' of later adaptations or re-tellings leave her out entirely, leaving Glinda as Oz's only good witch.

* {{Accidental Hero}}: 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.

Added DiffLines:

* ThePrankster: They were very mischievous creatures, until one of their pranks - in which they threw a well-off man named Quelala into a river on his wedding day - went too far. Quelala didn't mind too much, but his fiancée, a sorceress princess, was angry, and cursed them to do the bidding of whoever held the Golden Cap.

Added DiffLines:

* PunchClockVillain: They do some pretty unsavory things when under the control of the Wicked Witch, but the Winged Monkeys aren't actually evil; they're just forced to follow the commands of whoever holds the Golden Cap, whether they like them or not.

* AdaptationalWimp: In the 1939 movie, he doesn't use his axe at all, except to chop down the door to the room Dorothy's locked in, and pretty much all his badass moments from the book are left out, leaving him to do little but cry and lament his lack of a heart. In fact, he doesn't even know how to hold an axe. (A photo contrasts a scene from the film with the corresponding scene in which Creator/BuddyEbsen plays him.) The Scarecrow uses his axe to cut a rope, dropping a chandelier on the Winkie Soldiers threatening them.

* UnfortunateNames: As mentioned above, his initials spell out "Oz Pinhead", [[MeaningfulName naturally reflecting]] the fact he's almost a complete fraud.

* MonsterFacade: Once he realized that every creature in the forest ran from him because they assumed he was a ferocious lion, he ran with the facade in the hopes that no one would actually call his bluff and challenge him.

* SeenItAll: Dorothy starts out the first book as just a normal (if more down-to-earth and resourceful then than average,) little little girl who just wants to get back home to Kansas, and she could, at times, actually be alarmed and even a bit frightened at the strange and oft dangerous situations she and her friends found their way into. By the third book though, it turns out that her first adventures in Oz toughened her up, and as a result, she's hardly the least bit surprised or shocked at what she goes through in ''Ozma of Oz.'' By book 4, she's pretty much an experienced vet; calm, confident, and [[GenreSavvy knowing how these books tend to work,]], as she serves as a sort of big sister and guardian to Zeb. And in Book 6, she moves to Oz for good, as by that point, she feels more at home there then she does in our world. (Probably helps that she kept getting shanghaied into Oz against her will by various disasters and several dozen unexplained magical road-way's, so she also probably figured that, if she's just going to keep getting dragged back into Oz anyway, she might as well just stay there.)
