* BarBrawl: The fight with the thugs at Rough House's hash house is a classic example. It's also astoundingly cartoonish for a live-action film, combining clever practical effects and good physical actors.

* OrderedApology: In the lead-up to the brawl at Rough House's, Popeye demands an apology from the thugs who mocked his pappy. They respond by seizing the hash houses's ''other'' patrons and forcing an apology out of each. This is just for fun, as they obviously intend to throw down with Popeye one way or another.

* KarmaHoudini: Wimpy causes a lot of complications for Popeye and The Oyls, yet he never really seems to pay for any of it.

* DefeatEqualsFriendship: The diner toughs, after a fashion. They all are (understandably) uncomfortable when they next see Popeye (at the engagement party), but when he exiles the tax man, the jubilantly carry him aloft. Later when he goes to have it out with the commodore, they shout encouragement to him.


Added DiffLines:

* DissonantSerenity: Almost all of the diner patrons, and even some of the staff, start to [[OhCrap freak out]] when it's obvious a brawl is imminent. However, Roughhouse doesn't even look up from his solitaire game.
** Likewise, Bluto only glances at the carnage with passing curiosity, not even stopping his meal.


Added DiffLines:

** When the diner toughs come into The Rough House Cafe, Mort snatches a chair up from under Ham Gravy. However, Ham remains aloft as if the chair is still under him. In the background, you see that he's ''still aloft'' like this for five or more minutes!

* DinerBrawl: Popeye first springs into action at the aptly named Rough House. (As the gang taunts him in the leadup to the brawl, note that the workers are setting up gates/barracades, suggesting that this trope is a common occurance there!)

** "I'm Mean", of course, about how Bluto is so tough, [[BeyondTheImpossible he even fought himself in a dream and was choked to death, then somehow managed to break the hold afterward]].
