* PanickyExpectantFather: More "anxious" than outright panicky, but when the storks are delivering the circus babies, the father tiger is pacing the cage, stealing anxious glances at the sky. His mate just lies there sleeping, quite unconcerned.

* ShownTheirWork: When Dumbo and his mother are separated, we get a shot of each of them looking absolutely miserable and swaying in place. Swaying is a very real coping mechanism displayed by stressed elephants.

* CensorshipBySpelling: The elephants use this when [[AllOfTheOtherReindeer describing]] [[ButtMonkey Dumbo]].

to:

* CallBack: A very sad one. After playing around their stall, Mrs. Jumbo and her son entwine their trunks affectionately, and she slowly pulls up on her own until they inevitably separate. During the "Baby Mine" sequence, they do the same thing when it's time for them to part, holding trunks until the last possible moment.

* HateSink: This movie is called NoAntagonist for a reason, as even the elephant bullies occasionally have a point in being angry at Dumbo (especially when he screws up their climax and wounds them greatly). But ''good luck'' finding fans of that one kid that bullied Dumbo and incited the wrath of Mrs. Jumbo, triggering a chain of events of Dumbo's misery. Most people use him as a prime example of the show's KidsAreCruel and HumansAreTheRealMonsters.

* DisappearedDad: Dumbo is originally named after him, and his mother sounds wistful when she reveals this, but that's the extent we know of him.
