* StealthPun: The prosecutor "interviewing" Angus [=MacBadger=] assumes he's answering "yes" to each loaded question, while Badger doesn't really get a chance to truly answer. He was "badgering" the witness, who IS a badger!

* SuicidalOverconfidence: During his trial, Toad was sure he was going to win, being casual about the whole affair, serving as his own attorney, and even preparing to leave the courtroom during his final witness's testimony. Justified in that he ''was'' innocent, but he didn't know that [[spoiler:his witness, Mr. Winkie, was in league with the Weasels and would throw him under the bus]].



* WhatHappenedToTheMouse: [[spoiler:It is not mentioned if Mr. Winkie and his gang were ever punished. They obstructed justice, stole a motorcar, and attempted to murder Mr. Toad and his friends, yet there is no shot of them being dragged off to jail.]]

* EasilyForgiven: Toad does not hesitate for a second in forgiving the sincerely remorseful Ratty and Moley for sternly attempting to turn him over to the authorities after learning that Toad was actually innocent the whole time.

* JerkAss: The prosecutor at Mr. Toad's trial is far from an AmoralAttorney, but he goes about interrogating the witnesses in such an abrasive and accusatory way that it's hardly a shocker that the judge did not hold Cyril in contempt for accusing the prosecutor of not knowning the "honest way" of dealing.

** The entire chase perfectly zig-zags the line between comedy and horror. The Horseman is always terrifying, but every move by Ichabod to escape is a riot. It's basically [[WesternAnimation/WileECoyoteAndTheRoadrunner Wile E. Coyote]] trying to escape from [[Literature/TheSilenceOfTheLambs Hannibal Lecter]].

** The entire chase perfectly zig-zags is in a permanent state of this, constantly standing with one foot on each side of the line between comedy and horror. The Horseman is always a terrifying, inhuman figure who could give [[Disney/SleepingBeauty Maleficent]] or [[Disney/SnowWhite the Evil Queen]] lessons in being scary, but every move by Ichabod to escape is a cartoonishly slapstick riot. It's basically [[WesternAnimation/WileECoyoteAndTheRoadrunner Wile E. Coyote]] trying to escape from [[Literature/TheSilenceOfTheLambs Hannibal Lecter]].

* MaybeMagicMaybeMundane: The film is deliberately ambiguous as to whether or not the Headless Horseman exists, [[spoiler:unlike the book, which very strongly hints that the horseman was Brom in disguise]]. Though Ichabod does look down the Horseman's coat at one point and doesn't appear to see anything.

Though Ichabod does look down the Horseman's coat at one point and doesn't appear to see anything.anything, but given how dark it is, and his state of mind (sheer, pants-crapping terror), he could have simply missed the top of a real person's head, especially if they had a cloth covering to help hide the real head.

* FrothyMugsOfWater: As is typical for Disney, this is averted - Even though it's not outright stated, Brom Bones is clearly giving his friends beer at the beginning of ''Sleepy Hollow'' and taking some for himself. In an unusual example of this trope, none of them are shown as getting drunk - They're just causally enjoying beer.

* Jerkass: The prosecutor at Mr. Toad's trial falls short of being an AmmoralAttorney, but he goes about interrogating the witnesses in such an abrasive and accusatory way that it's hardly a shocker that the judge did not hold Cyril in contempt for accusing the prosecutor of not knowning the "honest way" of dealing.

* RichInDollarsPoorInSense: Mr. Toad. In fact, the "rich in dollars" part is questionable.
