* JerkassHasAPoint / JerkWithAHeartOfGold: Grandpa George is very cynical at the chances of winning the ticket, but there are moments where he's in the right. The first being when Mike Teavee announces on television, that he hates chocolate, causing George to go on a swearing rampage. While most was muted, it started with him rightfully calling out a chocolate hater for going to a chocolate factory despite that. The second was when Charlie wins the ticket, he talks Charlie out of selling it, because he believes it would ruin a once and a lifetime opportunity for Charlie.
* JobStealingRobot: The toothpaste cap-screwing machine that makes Mr. Bucket redundant. [[spoiler: He gets the last laugh, though, when the factory re-hires him to fix the machine whenever it breaks down.]]

Charlie comes first.

* TotallyRadical: PlayedForLaughs. As a side effect of having isolated himself from the rest of the world for so long, Willy Wonka tends to speak this way to children, using slang and references that wander from TheFifties to TheSeventies.

For example, in explaining his hair-growing candy to Mike Teavee, "Are you hip to the jive? Can you dig what I'm layin' down? I knew that you could. Slide me some skin, soul brother!"

* SniffSniffNom: Young adult Willy Wonka (in the Loompaland flashback) seems willing to taste ''anything'' as a potential candy ingredient, including mashed caterpillars and the green goo [[LickingTheBlade left on his machete]] after cutting a giant mosquito in half. (The former also counts as TastesLikeFriendship.)

* UngratefulBastard: Grandpa George says that word for word, in response to Mike Teavee's hatred of chocolate, [[{{Hypocrite}} despite the fact that Teavee is going to a chocolate factory.]] Luckily Charlie's mother covers his ears just before he gets that far.

* RecycledTrailerMusic: The final stretch of the trailer uses "Flying" from the 2003 ''Film/PeterPan''. Five years later, an excerpt from this score ("Up and Out") was used in the trailer for ''Film/AliceInWonderland''.

* ClusterBleepBomb / CoverInnocentEyesAndEars / CurseCutShort: When Grandpa George learns that Mike Teavee doesn't actually like chocolate -- he only sought out his Golden Ticket to show off his own intelligence -- he shouts at the television "Well, it's a good thing you're going to a ''chocolate'' factory then, you ungrateful little bu-" Mr. Bucket promptly covers Charlie's ears and neither he nor the audience can clearly hear what appears to be a ''very'' profane rant that goes on for several seconds.

* LostInImitation: While this film mostly avoids this trope with regards to the 1971 version, it does keep the same nationalities that film established for the children, while also [[AdaptationExpansion giving most of them hometowns]] -- Augustus is from Düsseldorf (which suffers from a bad case of [[HollywoodAtlas Hollywood Geography]]), Veruca is from Buckinghamshire, Violet is from {{Atlanta}}, Mike is from UsefulNotes/{{Denver}}, and Charlie is still ambiguously British/American. Keep in mind that in the book all the characters' nationalities are ambiguous -- most subsequent adaptations have picked up on the 1971 precedent -- and since the tickets were explicitly said to be available all over the world, this is a relatively realistic touch in any version.

While Krusty the Clown grew up with a rabbi that had a rather serious personality that didn't want him to become a clown, Willy Wonka grew up with a dentist that didn't want his son to become a candy maker.
