* EveryCarIsAPinto: Parodied. At one point the Grinch rides on a tiny - not as in child-size, as in ''skateboard-sized'' - car that does not move particularly fast, and yet when he busts the gas leak and runs it [[RefugeInAudacity explodes like an oil tanker.]]

* SadClown: The Grinch is adapted into one. Despite being far goofier in this film, his humorous attacks on the people of Whoville are sourced by the unrelenting rage from the miserable childhood they gave him.

* EnfantTerrible: Yes, it was the brutal taunting he received from his classmates that turned the Grinch into a full-fledged villain, but he always had sadistic traits going all the way back to his youth, especially in regards to Christmas. Examples include eating a Santa plate as a baby and drawing a picture of Santa falling off his sleigh to his death as a boy. Also, during his construction of the angel in an attempt to impress Martha and get into the Christmas spirit, he shows no regard or concern for the valuable family items he is building it from, such as the expensive silverware or family heirloam.
