** The sequel, the crowds of Vegas are running for their lives as giant Adam playfully makes his "rampage." Then the military decides to shoot tranquilizer darts, shocking the Hard Rock Café guitar Adam had been trying to play, causing Adam to cry. The panicked crowd watch no longer in horror of Adam, but in concern and compassion, seeing him for what he is, an innocent little boy in a beyond belief situation, then turning to anger as they prepare to shoot him again.

* BigDamnHeroes: Quark does this twice in the climax of ''Honey, I Shrunk the Kids''; first rescuing the kids from the backyard and bringing them inside the house, then in the next scene he bites Wayne's leg seconds before he accidentally eats Nick.
** In the second film, giant-sized Diane stops Dr. Hendrickson from shooting her son again by grabbing his helicopter out of the sky.



* DoesThisRemindYouOfAnything: In the third film, Adam and Mitch look at a magazine that Adam thinks would get him in trouble with his dad and that the parents can't see from their angle on the floor. [[spoiler: Wayne crawls up on the magazine after the boys leave and discovers its a regular issue of ''Sports Illustrated.'' Wayne seems nearly as upset as he would have been if it really had turned out to be a Magazine/{{Playboy}}, though not because of what the magazine turned out to be, but because Adam would think he'd be so upset about it. This is what starts Wayne's character growth in this film and makes him start to realize that he needs to let Adam pursue his own interests instead of forcing him into the sciences; his own son is actually afraid of him finding out he's into sports.]]

** In the third film, the two fathers have to dodge giant potato chips when they fall into a bowl of dip.



* HereWeGoAgain: At the end of the second movie Nick and Mandy are still shrunk in the car and Adam's stuffed bunny is still huge. Wayne tells a doubtful Diane he'll get the machine fix to shrink it back. Though Adam doesn't seem to mind.

* DemotedToExtra: Amy only briefly appears in ''Honey, I Blew Up The Kid'', and [[PutOnABus leaves for college]] before the end of the first act. Including the scene at all seemed to be mostly an excuse to get Diane out of the house again.

Including the scene at all seemed to be mostly an excuse to get Diane out of the house again. To be fair, when the film was originally written as ''Big Baby'', the family it was supposed to center around did not have an eldest daughter, so the writers probably felt that trying to shoehorn Amy into the film would made it come off as disjointed and janky.



* DolledUpInstallment: ''Honey I Blew Up The Kid'' was originally a script called ''Big Baby''.

Added DiffLines:

* OOCIsSeriousBusiness: Anytime Wayne gets angry. The two most noteworthy instances come when he takes his anger out on the shrink ray in the first film after it had just ''successfully'' shrunken the kids, and in the second when Dr. Hendrickson announces that the now-enlarged Adam is to be tested, which sends him flying into a ''rage''.


Added DiffLines:

* UnwittingInstigatorOfDoom: Wayne practically lives by this trope, which is no surprise given his tendency to lose himself in his work and to neglect to double up on the unpredictable nature of his machine. And in the first film, he unwittingly ''sweeps the kids into the trash'' and gets them lost in the backyard.
** It was Ron's baseball that set off the shrink ray in the first movie, though to be fair it was an honest, everyday accident on his part.

* BloodlessCarnage: For all the chaos Adam causes stomping around Las Vegas, he doesn't actually hurt anyone or cause that much damage. Then again, it ''is'' a Disney movie.

Added DiffLines:

** In ''Honey, I Blew Up the Kid'', Wayne completely ''flips out'' after he and Diane learn that Dr. Hendrickson had Adam detained and taken for testing without their knowledge, and actually wrestles a police marshal when he nearly dishes it out to the man.
--> '''Marshal Brooks''': We just needed to give the baby more room so he wouldn't hurt himself.
--> '''Dr. Hendrickson''': Of course, the mutated child will have to undergo [[BerserkButton immediate testing]].
--> '''Wayne''': '''[[SuddenlyShouting That's]]''' '''''[[SuddenlyShouting my kid]]''''' '''[[SuddenlyShouting you're talking about!]]'''
