** When Phoebus fist visits the belltower, an enraged Quasimodo effortlessly picks him up with one arm, showing his extraordinary strength when protecting those dear to him. The next time he becomes angry is when he sees Esmeralda about to be burned alive.

* AnAesop: There is a difference between laughing with a crowd and being laughed at by a crowd. While Quasimodo is initially being celebrated by the crowd during "Topsy Turvy", the lyrics of the song are a StealthInsult, saying "once a year the ugliest will wear a crown". It takes only one thrown tomato to turn the crowd to acts of sadism.
** Averted in the stage show:
--> "And we wish we could leave you a moral/Like a trinket you hold in your palm."
** Don't judge people based on appearances, as even people who appear "normal" have the capacity to do horrific things.

** The original Phoebus is more of a vain {{Jerkass}}. but in here Phoebus is depicted to be a much better person.

* FamilyUnfriendlyDeath: [[spoiler:Judge Frollo]] falls to his death off of a crumbling gargoyle and into a pit of molten copper. It may be clouded by smoke, but it is certain that he died from the impact only to have his corpse immolated. Not to mention there are strong implications that this was the result of divine intervention.

** Quasimodo's mother to a lesser extent; she is knocked down the stairs of the cathedral and dies the moment her head hits the bottom stair. While we only see her from the front, it's implied the back of her head split open and her neck broke upon contact.

* {{Expy}}: There's a good chance someone on staff either REALLY liked or worked on ''WesternAnimation/{{Gargoyles}}''. Clopin to Puck, Esmeralda looked a LOT like Elisa, and the prevalence of gargoyles in both works.

* EverybodyHasStandards: It took very little incentive from a few guards to push the crowd of Parisian citizens to bully and mock Quasimodo. However, during the finale, they have clearly become disgusted by Frollo's parody of "justice". When he's about to burn Esmeralda, the crowd is clearly furious, with people shouting that she didn't do anything and she is innocent, and the guards are barely containing the uprising. It only takes a brief but inspiring speech from Pheobus to launch a full-blown revolt against Frollo.

** Look at the scene where Frollo destroys Quasimodo's model of Paris. As he does so he picks up a wooden figure of Esmeralda and throws it, knocking over a figure of himself in the process. Also, aside from the obvious symbolism he's invoking by burning Esmeralda's figure, there is how he smashes all the other figures and the cathedral model in his rage; not only does this foreshadow his Villainous Breakdown later on, it specifically shows how he's willing to do anything, whether killing the citizens or attacking the cathedral itself, to get what he wants.

*** Quasimodo is tied up twice. The first time, it's with rope, he's completely helpless, begging Frollo to help him, until Esmeralda comes to his rescue; the second time, it's with chains, which he breaks with his own willpower, in an act of defiance against Frollo, so that he can rescue Esmeralda.
