* {{Adorkable}}: Could briefly be used to describe Basil, of all people, after Olivia's MyParentsAreDead moment. He gets very awkward and tongue-tied before snapping back to his usual self.
** Again with Basil when we first meet Toby.
** Also the scene where he's awkwardly trying to cheer up Dawson. "I say...Dawson, old chap?" with a nervous smile.

* CantKillYouStillNeedYou: After Hiram Flaversham refuses Ratigan's command to complete a clockwork robot to impersonate the Queen, and adds insult by calling him a [[BerserkButton rat]], Ratigan barely restrains himself from feeding Hiram to [[TheDragon Felicia]]. When Hiram expresses that he isn't afraid to die, Ratigan [[IWillPunishYourFriendForYourFailure instead threatens the life of his daughter]], Olivia.

* EvilBrit: Ratigan, albeit with the American voice of VincentPrice, although Price's accent in the movie still sounds thoroughly American to British ears.

* TheRenaissanceAgeOfAnimationTheRenaissanceAgeOfAnimation: If this trope were an ocean, then this film would be Disney's first step into the water. But it wasn't until [[Disney/TheLittleMermaid three years later]] that they truly dived in with a splash (pun intended).

** Also, poor Olivia. It's probably best not to wander off from the detectives protecting you when there's a kidnapper on the loose.

* GratuitousLaboratoryFlasks: Basil has a chemistry setup in his home, which he actually uses to determine that Fidget's burglary list has come in contact with salt water, leading Basil to deduce that Fidget frequents a sleazy pub "where the sewer meets the riverfront." In fact, when Ratigan snares Basil in his ambush, he chides Basil, "Trouble with the chemistry set, old boy?"
