* HostileHitchhiker: Isabelle and Enid expect others to help them, while they mock and insult Ralph who did help them and [[spoiler: and jumped at the chance to rob him]].

* BerserkButton: A relatively subtle one, but look into Hilary's face when Isabelle holds roughly a doll and especially when she calls the toys ''shit''.

** The dolls have one in the form of people trying to steal from their owners, or those who try to hurt innocent children. The latter is especially prominent in Mr. Punch where Judy is involved.

* MoralityPet: Judy to the dolls, Gabriel, and Hilary. The mutual compassion shared between the young girl, the dolls, and the older married couple protects Judy and illustrates the dolls and their owners are not soulless monsters.


Added DiffLines:

* WhatTheHellHero: Judy gets extremely angry when the dolls try to kill Ralph and calls them out for being so horrible to him. Granted, he ''was'' attacking them, but because he's been put through an increasingly frustrating and terrifying experience and knows the dolls did something to the other adults. However, instead of turning on Judy as you'd expect, the dolls appear to truly ''listen'' to Judy and stop hurting Ralph. This is an indicator that they're not just a bunch of miniature psychopaths who hurt anyone they can for fun.

* ObviouslyEvil: The Hartwickes did not need their magic powers to see that Isabelle and Enid were bad news from the start. Their punk rock dress code was not the reason as much as their extremely horrible, abrasive and ungrateful behavior and tendency to more or less intrude and ask about valuable old shit all the time. They practically scream low-life thieves. This also makes Ralphie a HorribleJudgeOfCharacter.

* BitchInSheepsClothing: David appears at first to be less mean and rude than Rosemary his irritation and indifference to Judy notwithstanding. [[spoiler: By the end when alcohol brings the real him to the surface he is reduced to a violent and physically abusive sociopath (perhaps the cruelest in the group) who tries to ''murder'' Ralph, hits Judy and takes savage delight in destroying toys. One could argue that there was foreshadowing to this side of his when he angrily told Rosemary to shut up and immediately took it back and also when he used a SlasherSmile while trying to control his anger with Judy.

* UngratefulBastard: With the exceptions of Ralph and Judy, the others in the group do not feel the least bit obliged towards the kindly old couple who offered them a house to spend the night. Even David who feigned politeness called Gabriel an old fart behind his back.

** Rosemary is of a different kind. She is mostly freezing cold, with a permanent scowl on her face and almost incapable of speaking a sentence without making nasty remarks.
