* EasyAmnesia: It seems to have something to do with transitioning between Neverland and the "real world".

* AndYouWereThere: As a likely ShoutOut to the original play's invocation of this trope, the trash sweeper at the end is also played by Bob Hoskins. Early on the ''captain'''s voice on the plane to England is Dustin Hoffman's, and it's the same voice he uses for Hook.
** Given that Hook seems to "know" that they'd be in their beds at exactly that time, it's very likely that the trash sweeper ''is'' Smee and that the plane captain is Hook. The book, being a text medium, makes it slightly clearer that Hook has agents working in the real world.
-->"This is your Captain speaking."
** Hook has a baseball in Neverland... and Maggie says that "the mean scary man at the window" stole it and said that he was "a window washer"; she's directly implying that it WAS Hook(or Smee) at the window.
*** This is also averted; Michael who, by the official Peter Pan in Scarlet sequel, is dead and John, who is assumed to be dead by this time, are both referenced by the stuffed teddy bear and top hat in Wendy's Drawing Room. Neither, however, actually appear.

* EasyAmnesia: Hooboy, Jack had this in spades. Justified in that as Maggie says so aptly, "Neverland makes you forget."
** Peter gets it too - When he remembers that he's Peter Pan, Tink has to remind him that he has children.
*** Of course, the amnesia the other way is what gets the film going: Peter Banning doesn't believe that he ever was Peter Pan.
*** Neverland has always been implied to be something of a dreamworld, which is why it is hard to remember in the real world, and vice versa.

** Peter gets it too - When has forgotten all about being Peter Pan. After he remembers that does remember, he needs to be reminded he also has children and stuff.
** After a while of being "adopted" by Hook, Jack eventually forgets about his real father until
he's Peter Pan, Tink has to remind him that he has children.

* AllLoveIsUnrequited: Played straight, with Tinkerbell finally confessing her love for Peter only for Peter to say that he loves his wife, Moira. Also played straight with Wendy's confession that she loved Peter so much that she wanted him to swoop in and forbid her marriage on her wedding day. Subverted with Peter's love for Moira, as it's very clear that she loves him right back.

* ChekhovsGun: Jack can't hit a curve ball, The pirates get wind of this. By making sure not to throw Jack a curve ball during their baseball game, the pirates are able to curry his favor more easily later.

CheerfulChild: Maggie. It's probably her optimism that allows her to see through Hook's claim that her parents don't love her, whereas it works on MouthyKid Jack.
