* PersonaNonGrata: Due to their fight on the podium at the beginning of the film, both Jimmy and Chazz are stripped of their titles and banned from men's singles skating for life. Fortunately, the ban ''only'' extends to men's singles skating; they can still do pairs skating.

Added DiffLines:

* ProductPlacement: Mane and Tail is a real brand, although the equine-based name comes from it mostly being used on horses, not because it's made from horse placenta (which it isn't, if you're planning to run out and get some anytime soon).

* RippingOffTheStringOfPearls: Exploited by Fairchild Van Waldenberg after she and Stranz fail to detain Jimmy and Chazz right before their final routine. The two are already on the ice, but Fairchild thinks she still has a chance to sabotage them. [[spoiler:She [[https://youtu.be/7UpRNOkb4hw?t=93 tears off the pearl necklace]] she's wearing as part of her Creator/MarilynMonroe costume and flicks the pearls onto the ice, causing Chazz to break his ankle when he skates over one and loses his balance. The camera focuses on the single pearl that injures Chazz as it bounces across the ice and into his path.]]

* CampStraight: Jimmy.

to:

* CampStraight: Jimmy. So much that some people, including Chazz, describe him as looking like a girl.



* TheDogBitesBack: [[spoiler:Katie eventually hits back at Stranz and Fairchild after Fairchild once again points out that Katie was with their parents when they died. Katie snaps and tells them that their parents weren't wearing their seatbelts and made an illegal turn, so their deaths were almost entirely their own faults.]]
* DudeLooksLikeALady: Jimmy, as well as being CampStraight. In fact, during the montage of people interviewed after Chazz and Jimmy are announced as a new pairs team, one man is dismayed to realise Jimmy is male.



* FlippingTheBird: Chazz does this to Stranz [[spoiler:after escaping from him]], kicking off the chase with both of them wearing their skates.



* JerkWithAHeartOfGold: Chazz

to:

* JerkWithAHeartOfGold: ChazzChazz. He's TheCasanova and generally not a nice person to start off with, but he warms up to Jimmy and eventually Katie as the film goes on and helps Jimmy out a few times.

After going through a slump in their lives, Jimmy discovers a loophole with the help of his stalker Hector saying that he can compete in the doubles even though he's been banned. Jimmy gains the help of his coach, but is unable to find a female partner, so they enlist the help of his rival Chazz to compete in the Figure Skating Championships.

* BlandNameProduct: "But wait!", you say. "Winter Olympics figure skating rules [[ArtisticLicenseSports specifically state that a pairs team must be a man and a woman!"]] Well, these are the World Winter Sport Games. By the same token, many of the moves they make are illegal in RealLife Winter Olympics. Luckily for them, they're not competing in the Olympics.

* LoopholeAbuse: Two examples. First, as Hector points out, Jimmy is only banned from singles skating; he can still skate pairs. Second, the World Winter Skate rules does not state that skating pairs must be of the opposite sex, allowing Jimmy and Chazz to enter as a team.
