* DefectorFromParadise: Edward comes across the idyllic town of Spectre, where everyone is friendly, [[DoesNotLikeShoes everyone is barefoot]] (so that they can't leave via the forest), and the culture is in an eternal stasis. Edward eventually decides he can't stay here when there's so much else he wants to accomplish in life. A poet there, Norther Winslow, also leaves after he's realizing he hasn't been able to write a single decent poem since he arrived, and becomes a bank robber then businessman. [[spoiler: Years later they return and use their fortune to save the town from bankruptcy.]]

** Because Tim Burton wanted to avoid CGI in this film, [[spoiler: ''those are all real daffodils.'']]
* InterchangeableAsianCultures: Edward's flashback to his war career has in parachuting in to a deliberately vague military camp in Asia. The logos and uniforms are made up, the time period isn't given, and Edward pre-parachuting is even reading a book called "How To Speak Asian". The Asian actors in this scene also speak different languages; the puppeteer speaks Tagalog, the soldier who escorts him offstage speaks Mandarin Chinese, the twins speak Catonese, and the other soldiers speak Korean. This was done to keep the scene from setting itself in a specific war, and also possibly because Edward, as an American, might not be able to tell the difference between different Asian cultures.
