* ScreamsLikeALittleGirl: Marv does this in the first movie when Kevin puts the tarantula on his face and again in the second movie when he and Harry are being attacked by the pigeons. This is evidently how Daniel Stern actually screams in real life. He also does it in ''CitySlickers'' and ''Bushwhacked!''

Added DiffLines:

* DoubleStandardViolenceChildOnAdult: ''Home Alone'' and the many, ''[[FollowTheLeader many]]'' [[{{Sequelitis}} sequels]] and [[HomeAloneAntics rip-offs]] of it are a good example. Sure, the bad guys may be deserving of some pain, but FridgeLogic can make you think that at least some of those traps are pretty damn lethal, and if not PlayedForLaughs, the kid would probably get a counter-sue as high as attempted murder. A court of law in real life may not react very well if you tell them that you "self-defensed" yourself by dropping an active lawnmower on someone, no matter how much of a crook the other guy is.

* FourTemperamentEnsemble: Kevin and Marv are sanguine, Harry is choleric, Kate melancholic and Peter is phlegmatic.

* CouldHaveAvoidedThisPlot: Overlaps with RevengeBeforeReason. Had Harry and Marv not accosted Kevin outside Duncan's Toy Chest, their entire heist would have gone off without a hitch because Kevin wouldn't have known about it.

** The scene where Kevin records his Uncle Frank taking a shower was meant to be a call back to [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vSfZQEkb0IU this creepy as fuck deleted scene from the first film]].

Added DiffLines:

* NoOneShouldSurviveThat: The 1st film had a variety of traps that would either inconvenience the burglars, or seriously injure them. The sequel however, takes this to absurd heights, when Kevin throws not one, but several clay bricks from several stories up straight at Marv's head. This is not a case of {{AnthropicPrinciple}} or {{AcceptableBreaksFromReality}}. A clay brick WILL kill you.

* GilliganCut: Kate tells the Miami police officer she doesn't think Kevin knows how to use a credit card, only for the scene to cut to him using Peter's credit card to check into the Plaza hotel.
