* WhatHappenedToTheMouse: It is not known what Alexander's ultimate fate was, nor that of the other talking donkeys. One possibility is that the talking donkeys were the ones that were being used to pull the stage coach early on when the island was shown for the first time. But probably, they stayed isolated until they forget to talk, and if that didn't happen, the Coachman probably packed them in crates.

* DespairEventHorizon: In one children's book based on the film, after his adventure in Pleasure Island he becomes depressed and starts to despair of ever becoming a real boy after that... and then a message comes in informing him about Geppetto.



* MeaningfulName: Pinocchio's name means "Pine Seed" in Italian. This means that he is definitely made of pine wood, and the Blue Fairy also calls him "little puppet made of pine" before bringing him to life.

* MeaningfulName: Pinocchio's name means "Pine Seed" in Italian. This means that he is definitely made of pine wood, and the Blue Fairy also calls him "little puppet made of pine" before bringing him to life. Even the full version of the song "Little Wooden Head" describes him as made of pine!



* FlatEarthAtheist: By his own admission, Jiminy used to be one. Then Pinocchio came to life, and he starts believing more and more in the fantastic from that point onwards.



* PrecisionFStrike: During his ScrewThisImOuttaHere moment... and that was ''before'' the AnalogyBackfire made him realize what was happening to the boys on Pleasure Island.
-->'''Jiminy Cricket''': [[SarcasmMode Ha, ha, ha!]] Go on, laugh! Make a jackass out of yourself! I'm through! This is the end!



* DoomedDefeatist: He's tried and failed to escape Monstro so many times, he's convinced himself [[SuicideMission its impossible]], even in the face of his son's determination and optimism.

* DoomedDefeatist: He's tried and failed to escape Monstro so many times, he's convinced himself [[SuicideMission its impossible]], even in the face of his son's determination and optimism. He only sees an opportunity to escape when Pinocchio starts smashing some furniture for firewood, and even then he's skeptical at first that it'll work.



* AdaptationalKarma: Inverted. In this film he is seemingly free, but in the book the Fox and the Cat end up in misery.

* AdaptationalKarma: Inverted. In this film he is seemingly free, albeit if you don't consider a certain deleted scene part of the canon, but in the book the Fox and the Cat end up in misery.



* HairTriggerTemper: He curses in Italian when he gets upset.

* HairTriggerTemper: He [[ForeignCussWord curses in Italian Italian]] when he gets upset.



* AdaptationPersonalityChange: The coachman in the novel was no more kind than he was in actuality, but he did a much better job at hiding his true intentions than his Disney counterpart, coming off a kind-hearted Santa Claus esque man, which helped him greatly with luring boys into his trap. In the movie, he doesn't even try to shroud his true character, donning a knowing smile that clearly indicates he is up to no good while on the coach to Pleasure Island, and has a look of sadistic pleasure (pun intended) as he watches the boys eagerly disembark from the fairy to Pleasure Island.

* EvilBrit: A pure evil brit.

to:

* EvilBrit: A One that's pure evil brit.evil, at that, complete with the deep voice and Cockney accent.



* PrecisionFStrike: When ordering his guards to secure the island with every one of his current victims inside.
-->'''The Coachman''': Give a bad boy enough rope, and 'ee'll soon make a jackarse of 'imself... ''[cue the EvilLaugh]''



* PrecisionFStrike: After Jiminy's ScrewThisImOuttaHere moment, he delivers one peppered with AnalogyBackfire ''just as it's starting to kick in.''
-->'''Lampwick''': Hear that beetle talk, you'd think something was gonna happen to us! Where's he get that stuff? "How do you ever expect to be a real boy?" What's he think ''I'' look like, a ''jackass''?\\
'''Pinocchio''': [[AnalogyBackfire You sure do!]]



* VillainousBreakdown: During the climax in a rather terrifying way. Though seeing as two people just ''lit a huge fire inside him'', you'd think its understandable that he'd be pissed, but no, [[SuperToughness all this act does is merely make him sneeze]]. When he realizes two people just escaped from his belly, ''[[RoaringRampageOfRevenge he truly flips out]]''. He gets more terrible and wrathful the more they dodge him and get closer to shore, [[UnstoppableRage so much so that he doesn't even care he's about to crash into a landmass]].
