** Can be justified in that they're a whole new generation of Lost Boys from the decades after Wendy's family adopted all the original ones and Peter eventually left 1960s. Several of them could be from the 70's and '80s, responsible for introducing things like skateboarding and schoolyard basketball(the sport itself has been around since 1891 anyway).

* AudibleSharpness: The Pan's sword hasn't gone dull in the fifty plus years since Peter left Neverland, and it even makes noise when ''[[AudibleGleam light]]'' hits it. Could be justified in this instance by being slightly magical in nature.

* * {{Acrofatic}}: Thudbutt is amazingly flexible, at one point bending his body to form a perfectly spherical boulder against Hook's pirates.

* 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.



* FaceDeathWithDignity: Zig-zagged by Hook, who when beaten by Peter calmly tells him, “Strike, Peter Pan. Strike true.” But when Peter then tells him to leave Neverland and never come back, [[ISurrenderSuckers Hook attacks Peter]]. When trying to attack Peter, Hook accidentally brings the Crocodile back to life, and this time Hook’s reaction is far less dignified.

* FirstKiss: Tinkerbell has her first ever with Peter, and he first seems to ask for “more,” but right as she goes in for her second (ever) kiss, he says, “Moira!” [[IWantMyBelovedToBeHappy Tink takes it surprisingly well.]]

* DisneyVillainDeath: Inverted [[spoiler: by the Crocodile falling on Captain Hook, rather Hook falling to his death. But like the standard trope, Hook’s actual death [[KilledOffscreen is not shown]].]]

* IWantMyMommy: Maggie's initial demand; [[spoiler: [[IronicEcho Hook's last words.]]]]



* InstantCostumeChange: Peter changes into his traditional green-leaf tights costume mid-flight.
* InstantExpert: Once Peter remembers that he is Peter Pan, he automatically remembers how to fly and how to fight.

* LiteralMetaphor: Tootles truly did “lose his marbles.”



* MarqueeAlterEgo: Tinkerbell has one scene where she is human size, allowing Creator/JuliaRoberts to physically share a scene with Creator/RobinWilliams.



* ShowWithinAShow: Maggie plays Wendy in a school production of “Peter Pan,” and even sings a song from the play while in Neverland.
* SignatureMove: Once Banning transforms back into Peter Pan, he does a triangle flight [[FullMoonSilhouette up to and then down from the moon]], and when he arrives to fight Hook, he floats above Hook’s ship in the DynamicAkimbo pose.



* WhenYouComingHomeDad: Jack is so bitter about his dad missing baseball games, not letting him jump on his bed, etc. that he has become convinced that his father feels he's more of an inconvenience than someone he loves. Hook uses this to turn him to the bad guys' side.

In the present day, Peter Banning (Creator/RobinWilliams) is a workaholic mergers and acquisitions lawyer whose job keeps him from his wife Moira and his two kids, preteen Jack and little Maggie. The family travels to London, England to attend the dedication of a new wing of the Great Ormond Street Hospital, to be named after "Granny" Wendy Darling (Maggie Smith) - Moira's grandmother and the woman who raised the orphan Peter before placing him with American parents. While most of the adults are at the dedication ceremony, the children are kidnapped, and the ransom note left behind is a scroll pinned to the door with a dagger, requesting Peter's presence and signed by one James Hook.

* 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.

* ChewOutFakeOut: Peter looks like he is about to scold Jack and Maggie for opening the window, a CallBack to an earlier scolding. Instead he tells them, “Always leave it open!” showing that he has been truly changed by his time in Neverland.



* DarkReprise: Hook hauntingly chants “Ru-fi-oooohhh” to taunt Rufio into fighting him. [[spoiler: It doesn’t end well for Rufio.]]



* DisneyVillainDeath: Inverted [[spoiler: by the Crocodile falling on Captain Hook, rather Hook falling to his death. But like the standard trope, Hook’s actual death [[KilledOffscreen is not shown]].]]
* DisproportionateRetribution: Don't steal a base during a Neverland baseball game. [[BlackComedy It gets you shot.]]

* DynamicAkimbo: Peter momentarily strikes this pose when he returns to Wendy’s house, [[{{Foreshadowing}} foreshadowing]] his true identity. Later, when he remembers he’s Peter Pan and [[ShowdownAtHighNoon goes to confront Hook]], he cuts out a silhouette of himself from Hook's sails in this pose and then appears above Hook in the same pose.



* FirstKiss: Tinkerbell has her first ever with Peter, and he first seems to ask for “more,” but right as she goes in for her second (ever) kiss, he says, “Moira!” [[IWantMyBelovedToBeHappy Tink takes it surprisingly well.]]



* IdentityAmnesia: Peter for a good chunk of the movie. Only [[spoiler: [[TapOnTheHead Jack's home run ball]]]] manages to help him get back on his feet.
* InteractingWithShadow: Peter's shadow points him to his old house in the hollow tree.


Added DiffLines:

* IWantMyBelovedToBeHappy: Right after Tinkerbell kisses Peter and professes her [[AllLoveIsUnrequited long love for him]], she still encourages Peter to fight for his kids and return to his wife after Peter chooses Moira over her.

* MortalityPhobia: Peter deduces that Captain Hook is still in Neverland trying to hunt him and the Lost Boys after so many years because after having killed the giant crocodile that tried to eat him, Hook's great fear has been replaced by time itself. Indeed, when Hook loses his wig, he is revealed to have become an old, white-haired man.

* 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.
