* InfantImmortality: Partial aversion variation. Dorothy spends a lot of the film believing the girl who helped her escape the hospital (but was really the Princess Ozma) drowned in the river. We also see the statue of a little girl in the Emerald City, showing Mombi wasn't above using her powers on children. She also tells the young Dorothy that she plans to wait a few years until she grows a bit older before cutting off her head for her collection.

* AdaptationalVillainy: In ''Ozma of Oz'', the wheelers are neither good nor bad, and little more than troublemakers. ''Return to Oz'' sees them reimagined as Mombi's henchmen, and attempting to capture the protagonists. [[note]]The novelization states that the Wheelers were originally wild and reckless, but overall harmless as people, before being enslaved by Princess Mombi under threat of being turned to stone like the other denizens of Oz. Make of that what you will. [[/note]]

Added DiffLines:

* MalevolentMaskedMen: The Wheelers, with their truly ''horrifying'' masks (their true faces aren't much better). The novelization states that they were enslaved by Mombi under threat of being turned to stone like the other denizens of Oz, so they may not be a traditional example, but they're no less terrifying because of it.

** [[https://images-na.ssl-images-amazon.com/images/I/A141zHuukzL._SX522_.jpg An old Japanese VHS cover]] is more accurate to the actual film overall, showing Dorothy, Tik-Tok, Jack Pumpkinhead and the Gump, with the Nome King, Mombi and a Wheeler as {{Evil Overlooker}}s. It also shows the Nome King's larger form slightly behind the actual character, implying they're separate characters, when they aren't in the actual movie - plus it implies the Wheelers as major antagonists, when they're actually just minor henchmen.

* DarkerAndEdgier: Much, ''much'' more than the 1939 movie. To be fair, this is a bad case of AdaptationDisplacement: More people are familiar with the musical film, and are unaware that it is actually LighterAndSofter than the original book series; ''Return'' is much closer to the books in tone.
