* [[ForgotAboutHisPowers Forgot About Her Powers]]: When her ice palace is under attack, Elsa is still suffering from the news about freezing the kingdom, and is desperate to control her powers again. So at this point, she seems to either forget the various non-lethal ways to use her powers against Weselton's men, or hopes to avoid using her powers and risk harming anyone.

* [[RaisedByWolves Raised by Rock Trolls]]: Kristoff was raised by trolls, and yet, he ''still'' has a better grasp of human society than the very sheltered Princess Anna, as seen by his disbelief in marrying Hans, who she's only known for hours.

* ActionGirl: Both sisters. Princess Anna smacks down a wolf with a lute, hurls flaming wreckage at two more, saves Kristoff from falling into a chasm, knocks a giant {{Snowlems}} over with a tree, [[spoiler: sacrifices her life for her sister]], and [[spoiler: punches her ex-fiance in the face, sending him flying over a railing]]. Elsa meanwhile uses her powers to take on two of the Duke of Weselton's men.

** Olaf's musical montage shows picnic and beach scenes in the style of the 1940s and 1950s, especially the ''Mary Poppins'' reference where he dances with seagulls.

** Generally speaking, aside from the fact that the overall aesthetic of the film is "Scandinavian", there's really very little true Norwegian stuff. Architecture, music, characters, practices and even folklore from Norway to Finland from the early middle ages to the early 20th century combine very tightly, everyone speaks English, Anna's got a Midwestern accent and Elsa's got a vaguely Queens (as in the borough, not the title) accent, and in the end, the film is not representative of any given place or time period, only that it's definitely before the automobile was invented and well before the construction of the first railroads

* ApologeticAttacker: Parodied with Oaken. After throwing Kristoff out of the store for [[BerserkButton calling him a crook]], Oaken cheerfully apologizes "I'm sorry about this violence!".....to Anna, since she witnessed an act of violence in his store.
* ArbitraryScepticism: Olaf, a talking snowman, is initially skeptical about the existence of rock trolls.

** According to Kristoff, the trolls (who are "love experts") would disparage Anna for getting engaged to a man she just met; but when he brings her to them, they try to get them married immediately. In the trolls' defense, they don't know that the two of them just met. One troll mentions that Kristoff has been gone for awhile, so they might think that they've been going steady for awhile. [[MurderTheHypotenuse Their comments about getting Anna's fiancé out of the way to fix the whole thing, on the other hand, are something different]].

** Elsa calls Anna out for falling for Hans so quickly saying, "Anna, what do you know about love?" reasoning that Anna is too sheltered to know what love means. It's understandable, except Elsa is also a bit sheltered about the world.



* InTheStyleOf: "Fixer Upper" sounds a lot like the kind of songs that appeared on ''Series/FraggleRock''. Robert Lopez had initially become famous for parodying Creator/JimHenson in ''Theatre/AvenueQ''.
* InkSuitActor: Although Elsa and Anna look more like each other in general than Idina Menzel and Kristen Bell, the shapes of their eyes and mouths and the way they form facial expressions have a close resemblance to their actresses. Anna even has Kristen Bell's ever so slight lazy eye (meaning Anna suffers from a mild form of strabismus). {{Inverted}} when they were adapted to the small screen for ''Series/OnceUponATime'' and the actresses cast for both sisters (Georgina Haig as Elsa, and Elizabeth Lail as Anna) are dead ringers for their physical appearances in the movie

** As Humon, the creator of ''Webcomic/ScandinaviaAndTheWorld'', details in the strip [[http://www.deviantart.com/art/Frozen-Nordics-446462251 "Frozen Nordics"]], it isn't just that Arendelle is Fantasy Norway, the Southern Isles are Fantasy Denmark and Weselton is Fantasy Sweden, with Kristoff being a Fantasy Saami. She also proposes that the trolls live in a fantasy version of Iceland (thanks to all the steam around where they live) and that Oaken is from Fantasy Finland (due to his love of the sauna).

* HeWasRightThereAllAlong: When Hans' group approach Elsa's ice palace, there's a new pile of snow next to the staircase that we didn't see the evening before when Marshmallow was tossing Anna and Kristoff out. Turns out the pile is Marshmallow sitting down with his back to the camera.

Those two things are never seen again. She also tosses her tiara away just before the third running of the chorus, [[BrickJoke and during the post-credits stinger, Marshmallow picks it up and dons it himself]].

* NoFlowInCGI: Averted as much as possible, with plenty of flowing hair and skirts. It becomes really noticeable in contrast, when Anna's dress for the coronation gets frozen stiff at the skirt when she falls into an ice-cold creek, and then she moves almost like a StopMotion cartoon the rest of the way to Wandering Oaken's Trading Post (and Sauna).

* RantInducingSlight: Anna says she can't take it anymore, so Elsa tells her to leave. Anna's frustration boils over and she then has at Elsa with that fateful fusillade of [[ArmorPiercingQuestion armor-piercing questions]].
* RealityEnsues: Even though Anna ''is'' a Princess and Hans ''is'' a Prince, and they sang that love duet "Love is an Open Door," Elsa refuses to let them marry right away no matter how infatuated they are, for the seeming reason that A) this is the 19th century, when marriages among royals were usually in the interest of politics rather than love, B) marriage wouldn't come for at least five to six months, and C) as Elsa is the ruler, Anna needs her permission to get married. If she didn't get permission, Elsa would have grounds to cut Anna from the line of succession (A good real life exploration of what happens if one doesn't ask for permission is what happened to the sisters of Lady Jane Grey).

** Kristoff likes to "speak for" his reindeer companion, Sven. Though Sven "agrees" with what's said, it's more so Kristoff can just tell us what he's already thinking. The funny thing is that "Sven" always "wins" the arguments.
** Olaf does this to a lesser extent. This can be heard happening when Anna and Kristoff first meet him. Also, when Anna hesitates before knocking on Elsa's front door, he says, “Knock? Just knock. Why isn’t she knocking? Do you think she knows how to knock?” which comes off sounding like he's saying what he's thinking.

** Elsa takes apparently no more than a couple of hours to get from Arendelle up to the top of the North Mountain on foot to sing "Let It Go" and build her ice palace. It takes about a day and a half to two days for Anna to travel up the North Mountain to Elsa's ice palace, first by horse, then by foot, then by Kristoff's sled, then by foot the rest of the way. In Anna's defense, it could be explained away that in traveling from Arendelle's castle to Wandering Oaken's Trading Post & Sauna, Anna was traveling ''away'' from the North Mountain, and from the best interpretations of the entire scene at the trading post, it's clear she had no idea where Elsa might have gone until she overheard Kristoff's remarks to Oaken about there being a big "howler" on the North Mountain. Likewise, it appears to take Hans and the Arendelle soldiers roughly thirteen to eighteen hours to travel from the castle in Arendelle to the ice palace on horseback since they appear to leave in the early afternoon and are seen arriving at the ice palace just as dawn is breaking. In Hans's defense, he and his team were riding horses, whereas Anna made the journey primarily on foot (and partially on Kristoff's sled before she crashed it during the wolf chase), which could explain Hans's shorter travel time.

The story continues in the new ''Anna & Elsa'' series of children's chapter books; the first two have been released in January 2015. The same year, a theatrical short titled ''Disney/FrozenFever'' was released alongside ''[[Film/{{Cinderella2015}} Cinderella]]'', telling a story of Anna's friends throwing her a birthday party; the short features the original cast and crew and a new original song. The fourth season of the ABC series ''Series/OnceUponATime'' also features a continuation of the story, and additional backstory linking it to the original ''Snow Queen'' story, though this is all non-canon with the film. A feature-length sequel was also announced in March 2015.
