* GenreSavvy: Wendy. She's smart enough to know to tell Peter the truth, the whole truth and nothing but the truth when she finally comes to after her fainting fit; she also looks directly at the beds and smiles nostalgically - before even realizing Jack and Maggie are there - as if reminiscing what she and her brothers did years ago.
** Maggie. She was just in the play at school, so she knows Neverland makes you forget and fights it when Hook tries to brainwash them.

* BadassDecay: In the beginning of the movie the once legendary Peter Pan has become a pudgy, middle-age man who does not remember his adventures and is also a complete Jerkass. [[HesBack He gets better]].

Added DiffLines:

* CruelAndUnusualPunishment: Hook and his crew are quite fond of these. Most notable however is the Boo Box, where one unfortunate pirate gets trapped in with several scorpions simply for questioning his captain behind his back.

Added DiffLines:

* ShoutOut: Appropriately for a hero clad in green (like Link from Franchise/TheLegendOfZelda), Peter's first overt act of badass is a sword spin.

* 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.
