* AlienBlood: The Gremlins bleed (often copious amounts) of green goo, even though the Mogwai bleed red.

** The Gremlin choking Billy's mom, just before Billy chops his head off. "Uh-oh." ** Really, one after another after another as soon as the Gremlins hatch: *** Billy when he gets the phone call from Mr. Hanson saying that "it just hatched." *** Again when he finds Mr. Hanson's dead body. *** Billy's mom when she hears the Gremlins upstairs, then goes up to Billy's room and sees the hatched cocoons. *** Billy calling his mom to warn her that "they've hatched, get out of the house!" *** Billy ''and'' his mom as the phone call gets cut off, then "Do You Hear What I Hear" starts playing downstairs. *** Billy running out of the high school, trying to make it home. *** Finally, Billy's Mom when she sees the Gremlin eating one of her gingerbread men.

** In the sequel, Billy has all the clocks in Clamp Tower set ahead a few hours, to convince the Gremlins the sun has gone down and it's safe to come out.

** And the original script compared to the first film. The script includes such scenes as the Mogwai eating Barney (before they turn into Gremlins), killing Billy's mom immediately after they turn, a McDonalds full of half-eaten burgers (by people) and half-eaten people (by Gremlins.) Oh, and Gizmo turned into a Gremlin, indistinguishable from any of the others.

* LighterAndSofter: The first film compared to the original script, where the gremlins usually killed people in exceedingly horrific ways. Also the second film to the first, which set out to be much sillier and slapsticky rendition than the occasionally dark first one (compare Kate's Santa monologue with the way a similar one is treated in the sequel).
