* TheVoiceless: The Ghost of Christmas Yet to Come doesn't speak, but every time it "responds" to Scrooge, a weird metallic wail (possibly meant to evoke the screech of a graveyard's gate) is heard in the background.

* DontYouDarePityMe: When Belle's husband tells her about Scrooge working alone and miserable, she's quite saddened by the life he made for himself. Ebenezer snaps that he doesn't need her pity before Christmas Past helpfully reminds him that she can't hear.

* IWantMyBelovedToBeHappy: One of Belle's reasons for leaving Scrooge. She realises that the now-mercenary Scrooge will regret marrying a girl without fortune.

* IronicEcho: At one point in the film, Scrooge states that it would be better for the poor to die and reduce the population. The Ghost of Christmas Present then uses the exact same statement Scrooge had said against him when they both witness how ill Tiny Tim is.

* ParlorGames: The guests at Fred's Christmas party are playing "Similes". Fred would say the first part of a common expression, such as "Quiet as..." or "Tight as...", which the player would then have to fill in (in these examples, 'a mouse' and 'a drum', respectively). The answer given, though, "As tight as your Uncle Ebeneezer's pockets."

Added DiffLines:

* BadFuture: A bit; it certainly is for the Cratchits, who [[spoiler: are mourning Tiny Tim's death]] when Scrooge encounters them in the future. Doubly bad since [[spoiler: Christmas Present had threatened exactly that earlier.]]


Added DiffLines:

* FutureMeScaresMe: Scrooge, naturally. Justified since [[spoiler: in the future projected, he's dead.]]
