* PinballProtagonist: Much like the original Oliver Twist, Oliver here spends a lot of the movie being dragged around in the affairs of Fagin's gang or other authorities. He [[TookALevelInBadass Takes A Level In Badass]] to come to the aid of Jenny however.



* WasTooHardOnHim: It is Tito of all people that tells Dodger to go easy on Oliver after the latter accuses him of being an UngratefulBastard by leaving them for Jenny.

* OnlySaneWoman: The most level-headed dog in Fagin's gang, probably because WomenAreWiser.

to:

* {{Expy}}: Very mildly of Nancy in the original novel. Though she is only associated with Sykes through Fagin here, she similarly has MamaBear instincts towards Oliver and is the most conflicted about dragging him back to Fagin.
* OnlySaneWoman: The most level-headed dog in Fagin's gang, probably because WomenAreWiser. There's a bit of NotSoAboveItAll when the boys start play fighting however.



* BigDamnHeroes: Comes to the aid of Jenny and his dogs via escape by scooter when they get caught by Sykes.



* JerkWithAHeartOfGold: A difference shared with the film adaptation - yes, he's a thief, and was planning to ransom Oliver, but he clearly loves his pets, and when he learns that Jenny is Oliver's owner, he immediately gives up all idea of collecting the ransom (even though he is fully aware that ''he will be killed'' if he fails to pay Sykes) in order to return Oliver to her.

* {{Expy}}: Arguably one to Noah Claypole of the original novel, an oafish apprentice of Oliver Twist's first residence who similarly conspires to get him thrown out of the house out of petty jealousy. Doubles as AdaptationalHeroism, while Noah was a bullying and remorseless KarmaHoudini, Georgette is merely a spoiled character who redeemed herself.
