** Lampshaded in the Nome King's case, in the novelization; his face is described as being “frighteningly familiar in spite of its alienness” to Dorothy, reminding her of the mental hospital in Kansas.



* [[TheEvilPrince The Evil Princess]]: Princess Mombi.

to:

* [[TheEvilPrince The EvilOldFolks: Dr. Worley and Nurse Wilson, and their Oz counterparts.
* {{The
Evil Princess]]: Prince}}ss: Princess Mombi.


Added DiffLines:

* GoodSmokingEvilSmoking: Both Dr. Worley and the Nome King are seen smoking a pipe while interacting with Dorothy, hinting at their insidious characters.


Added DiffLines:

* LipLock: During Princess Mombi's first appearance [[spoiler: with one of her false heads, the audio doesn't match up with her lips, indicating that the actress' dialogue has [[SameLanguageDub been dubbed over.]]


Added DiffLines:

* TheMountainsOfIllinois: The film depicts mountains in scenes taking place in Kansas, a prairie state (the movie itself was filmed in England).

* 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]]

* TheJuggernautTheJuggernaut: The Nome King, in his larger form.


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.
