** It's a blink-and-you'll-miss-it moment, but the barker for "Da Roughhouse" is, fittingly, channeling [[{{ComicStrip/Popeye}} Jack Mercer's Popeye]].

** Monstro the whale resembles a sperm whale, but has a head much too wide and teeth on both jaws, when real sperm whale have laterally-flattened heads and only have teeth on their very thin lower jaw. He also has belly lining, which is a trait of baleen whales. He is also seen sleeping at the bottom of the ocean. Whales don't sleep that way, or else they would drown. Although it's eventually revealed he's just pretending to sleep so he can ambush passing schools of fish.

* CrapsaccharineWorld: It's as bright, colorful, and detailed as any other Disney film of its time, but some of the tropes on this page tell a different story.

* TheDreaded: Monstro. The mere mention of his name causes sea creatures to swim away in terror. Also the Coachman, if his NightmareFace is any indication.

* InformedSpecies: Monstro doesn't look like any real species of whale. From the side he looks a bit like a sperm whale, but a sperm whale's jaw is narrow, unlike Monstro's shovel-jaw. Which, by the way, is grooved. Only rorquals (like the blue whale and humpback whale) have grooved lower jaws (but no teeth; instead they have baleen fringes).

He looks like a demonic caricature of a whale; more like the biblical Leviathan than any real sea creature.



* ItCanThink: Monstro must be pretty clever if he pretends to be asleep in order to catch the school of tuna. Besides if he keeps on chasing Pinocchio and Geppetto, it's quite obvious he has a brain.

** Geppetto when he realises Pinocchio's plan of making Monstro sneeze will infuriate Monstro. And it does, because it involves making a fire inside him.

* SuperPersistentPredator: Monstro. Once he gets pissed off enough he will stop at ''nothing'' to devour or destroy whatever made him angry.



* VillainousBreakdown: Monstro during the climax in a rather terrifying way. Though seeing as two people just ''lit a huge fire inside him'', you'd think it would be understandable that he'd be pissed, but no, [[SuperToughness all this act does is merely make him sneeze]]. When he realizes two people just escaped from his belly, ''[[RoaringRampageOfRevenge he truly flips out]]''. He gets more terrible and wrathful the more they dodge him and get closer to shore, [[UnstoppableRage so much so, he doesn't even care he's about to crash into a landmass]].
