* TheFairFolk: The monsters are all kids who stayed in the world under the bed for too long and have long-since forgotten their former lives; being exposed to light in the real world further disfigures them.

* TheFairFolk: The monsters are all kids who stayed in the world under the bed for too long and have long-since forgotten their former lives; being exposed to light in the real world further disfigures them. It actually starts happening to ''Brian'' once he spends too much time in the monster world - he opens a door to flee a room full of monsters who are tormenting a baby, and ''his arm vanishes when the hallway light shines on it.'' This causes more than a bit of trouble when one of his few friends accidentally does the same with a ''flashlight.''



* WhatHappenedToTheMouse: Halfway through the film, the parents mention that they're getting divorced. It's never really brought up again.

* EmptyPilesOfClothing: What happens when monsters are exposed to bright light.



* GiantSpaceFleaFromNowhere: There isn't much of a lead-in to the appearance of the BigBad at the end...he's just ''there''.

Added DiffLines:

* HeelRealization: Brian, and it's the CentralTheme of the movie; in the beginning, all Brian can think about is himself and the unfair things that happen to him. When he meets Maurice and is invited to abandon his few responsibilities, indulge in all his selfish fantasies, and torment whomever he deems worthy, he proceeds to [[TeensAreMonsters go utterly wild]]. Luckily for him, [[EveryoneHasStandards tormenting a baby is his limit]], and as a result he realizes he is becoming a monster - in every way imaginable - and flees, realizing that refusing to grow up will cost him everyone he cares for and his potential to accomplish anything positive in the world.

* TheBully: And a very generic one at that, who has one of the most bizarre [[HeelFaceTurn Heel Face Turns]] ''ever''.

to:

* TheBully: And a very generic one at that, who has one of the most bizarre [[HeelFaceTurn Heel Face Turns]] ''ever''. Subverted, though, in that he's only codified as a bully by obvious stereotype; the only fighting he does is retaliation for Brian braining him with a sandwich, which he didn't know was an accident, and he doesn't hesitate to help when asked.

* Title Drop: Said by Brian to Toad when describing the monsters, although it still seems forced as these monsters aren't exactly little.

* HeelFaceTurn: The bully, for literally no reason given.

* HeelFaceTurn: The bully, for literally no reason given. It's implied that he's just the first person Brian and Kiersten think of when they realize they need another pair of hands to make their plan work, and they did the sensible thing and ''asked him to help''.
