** Kenai blames the bear for Sitka's death when it was Kenai who provoked the bear in the first place, leading Sitka to sacrifice himself. *** Although the movie later reveals that bears are intelligent and are fully aware of their actions, meaning that [[spoiler:Koda's mother]] stole from humans, knowing that they would possibly go after her. Not only that but throwing rocks at a bear is supposed to scare them off, as that's what most national parks advise people to do if a bear wonders into a occupied campsite.
** While Denahi is right to blame Kenai, he denies the fact that he himself holds some of the blame. If he hadn't been so hard on his younger brother (Even going as far as to say that he's constantly messing up) Kenai wouldn't have gone looking for the basket, and if Denahi hadn't blamed Kenai for Sitka's death, Kenai wouldn't have gone after the bear. Both learn their lesson in the hardest way possible-- Denahi when he believes Kenai was killed, and Kenai when he realizes [[spoiler:the bear he killed was Koda's mom]].

** In the Finnish dub, the two moose speak in a South-Western Finnish dialect, which is equally funny to Finns as the 'hoser speak' in the original. As a side note, since ''Brother Bear'' takes place in the north, a Northern Finnish dialect (also amusing to some people) would have worked even better.

** In the sequel Koda tells Nita that Kenai has dreams about her, now as an audience we know that Kenai's dreams are simply his childhood memories of her, but Nita doesn't and the way that Koda describes it really doesn't help. In fact the way Koda describes it makes it sound like a [[EroticDream ''different'']] type of dream, Kenai even acknowledges this by going scarlet (Well as scarlet as a human-turned-bear can) and covering Koda's mouth and Nita starts giggling.

* DoesThisRemindYouOfAnything: When Kenai goes out to avenge the death of his brother Sitka, he chases a bear up a mountain and kills it, which is later revealed to be Koda's mother; in Theater/OedipusTheKing, Oedipus vows to find the murderer, only to discover after questioning the shepherd, that Laius, the man whom he killed in a skirmish, was his actual biological father.

* BilingualBonus: Igor, the foreign bear who starts ranting in another language is Croatian, and he's basically saying "I almost froze while I was crossing a huge icy passage. It was something I only barely survived. BARELY!" Later, he comments "[[SickeninglySweethearts These (two)]] are going to make me sick."
** Also, the transformation scene is even more powerful when you know the translation of the Inuit song the Spirits sing. Which, thankfully, is provided on the soundtrack.
