* CounterpartComparison:
** ''Mio my son''. The book takes place in a fantasy world where a reluctant hero and his loyal sidekick ventures into a barren wasteland to overthrow an evil overlord who lives in a tower with a red glowing eye in it - and he is solely responsible for making his land a complete desert. The book was published in 1953, [[Literature/TheLordOfTheRings Coincidentally at the same time as a certain other novel, telling the story of a reluctant hero and his loyal sidekick, who ventures into a barren wasteland, to overthrow an evil overlord, living in a tower where a red glowing eye can be seen]]. ''And this is, by the way, completely coincidental!''. Also complete coincidental is the fact that Christopher Lee played major bad guys [[http://www.imdb.com/search/name?roles=tt0093543,tt0167260 in both movies]].
** "Mio min Mio" also has very many similarities with HarryPotter (an abused orphan boy is taken to a magical world, realizes that he has to defeat a terrible villain and becomes the owner of an invisibility cloak).



* MemeticMutation: Pretty much every one of her books, and most of the movies, are sources of this for Swedes.
** Allan Edwall's interpretation of Anton Svensson, the father of Emil in three successive movies:
---> '''[[LargeHam EEEEEEEEEMMMMMIIIILLLL!]]'''
** The gnomes in ''Literature/RonjaTheRobbersDaughter''.
--> Voffo gör di på dette vise?
** "[[Literature/TheBrothersLionheart ALL POWER TO TENGIL, OUR LIBERATOR!]]"
** "Du har inte den den rätta knycken, fabbro Melker!"

* DawsonCasting: The actor playing the oldest brother in the movie version of ''The Brothers Lionheart'' is significantly older than his character was in the book. Though it's never actually mentioned how old he is in the movie, so this might just be a case of AgeLift. It also does pay off in the end, since this makes him a credible leader of LaResistance.
** {{Inverted}} and played with with the live-action Karlsson-on-the-roof, who is played by a child actor and overdubbed with the voice of an adult man, further underlining the VagueAge of the character.

* AccidentalTickleTorture: See EurekaMoment below.



* EurekaMoment: In one of Emil's adventures, there is a part where a man buys an unshod horse. All attempts to shoe it fail due to the horse kicking, and one man remarks that the buyer was cheated - at home, they tried to shoe it twenty times. Angry, the trader says anyone can have the horse for free, but when Emil takes him up on the offer, says he'll need to get him shod first. However, the horse's reaction reminded Emil (a five years old) of his family's servant, and he realized that [[spoiler:the horse is merely ''ticklish''. So, he manages by holding the horse's ''hoofs'', which have no nerves by definition.]] The trader tries to back out of the deal, but the crowd forces him to keep his word.

* DaddysGirl: Astrid we herself a Daddy's girl to her father Samuel August, and quite a few of her characters are this as well.
** Pippi Longstocking is very close to her father Ephraim, a pirate captain. Of course, it helps that her mother died when she was baby, so she could only connect to her father. But there still is a very close connection between them.

** Madicken is the {{Tomboy}} older sister, who has developed a growing sense of social justice. So there is no wonder that she has a very special relationship with her socialist father, who happens to also be more lenient than her more uptight mother is.
** Ronja is very close to her mother Lovis too, but still, it is her relationship with her father Mattis, that is the heart of the story. They do have a big falling out, but they still really love each other and reconcile in the end.
