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.

** 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]].

* 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 {{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.]]

** And moments before that, when she [[spoiler: also turns into a giant, she stops the helicopter]] Hendrickson is in, trying to shoot her baby with said tranquilizers. Considering they actually ''electrocuted'' poor Adam in the process, they're lucky Diane lets them keep their lives.

* WouldHurtAChild: Dr. Hendrickson's team in the second film tries to tranquilize giant toddler Adam by firing ''giant tranquilzer darts'' at him. They end up electrocuting him in the process, causing him to cry in one of the franchises' most [[TearJerker heartbreaking scenes]], and after traumatizing him to tears prepares to shoot him again. Diane is understandably [[MamaBear far less than pleased]] and makes sure they know it.

* NiceJobBreakingItHero: A literal example; Wayne smashes the shrinking machine in frustration shortly after the kids were miniaturized, then sweeps them up along with the wrecked electronics and debris littering the floor.
