* OOCIsSeriousBusiness: Jim is a decent chap who who wouldn't dream of being rude to his wife. When they hear the four minute warning that the missiles have been launched, Hilda fails to grasp the seriousness of the situation, decides to get the washing in and dithers about the cakes in the oven, panicking Jim so much that he shouts "Shut up, you stupid bitch, and get in the shelter!"

* EverybodysDeadDave: After the bomb drops, the Bloggses find no other sign of human life. The only wildlife shown are a few rats, a dog, and a dying bird.

A classic weapon of the anti-nuclear weapon movement, ''When The Wind Blows'' uses its bright colours, eccentric characters and art style similar to Briggs's classic children story ''ComicBook/TheSnowman'' to [[SomeAnvilsNeedToBeDropped hammer home the horrors of nuclear war]], and [[BlackComedy make dark satire]] about government leaflets advising how best to survive a nuclear attack. Naturally, its child-like style in both art and the characters' personalities make it one of the more famous examples to come from the AnimationAgeGhetto.

* InnocentInaccurate: Jim and Hilda believe living through a nuclear war will be no different from living through the Blitz and, once the Bomb has dropped, think all they have to do is hold on until help arrives. It never seems to occur to them that no help is ever going to come. Also, the film version contains a scene where they mistake the smell of burnt corpses for people cooking their Sunday dinners and think a dog howling in pain from radiation sickness is merely hungry. And, when (in both the film and the comic strip) they develop radiation sickness, they fail to recognise the symptoms for what they are, instead putting them down to things such as ill-fitting dentures (bleeding gums) and varicose veins (radiation sores).

It never seems to occur to them that no help is ever going to come. Also, the film version contains a scene where at one point, they mistake the smell of burnt corpses for people cooking their Sunday dinners and dinners. In the film, they think a dog howling dog is merely hungry; it's more likely that the dog is in pain from radiation sickness is merely hungry. and/or injuries sustained in the blast.
