* TakeThat: At one point, Rich Sr. is having a sit-down with the U.S. President, who is genuinely surprised to hear Rich explain "You see, Mr. President, when a country spends more than it takes in, it goes into debt." The implicit joke is quite obvious.

** For Ferguson, it's when he roughly grabs Richie near the beginning and justifies it by saying "it's my job to protect him."

** For Ferguson, it's when he roughly grabs Richie near the beginning and justifies it by saying "it's my job to protect him."" Cadbury gets his own immediately after - see PapaWolf.


Added DiffLines:

* FreudianExcuse: It's possible that Ferguson became Van Dough's {{Dragon}} because he felt unappreciated by the Riches for whatever reason, as implied by his "employee of the month" comment to Cadbury.

* CutLexLuthorACheck: Arguably an averted trope judging from Keenbean's behavior. The Rich family's financial wealth exceeds 70 billion dollars, and some of this may be because they family may be patenting and selling the inventions their GadgeteerGenius Keenbean creates. If so, Keenbean doesn't seem to mind that at all as the Rich family are [[BenevolentBoss Benevolent Bosses]] who are using their wealth to enable him to freely invent wonders (some less obvious than others like the Smellmaster) that would likely be unable to make without a wealthy patron. He might also love his job for various other perks like him being a BigEater inside a mansion that has its own McDonalds.

* YouHaveToBelieveMe: Van Dough refuses to believe Keenbean doesn't know the vault's location.

to:

* YouHaveToBelieveMe: Van Dough refuses to believe Keenbean doesn't know the vault's location. Keenbean's further elaboration that the vault is voice-activated (requiring the Rich parents' to be alive and present) gets them off his back since he could (and does) get the location by interrogating the parents for the vault location after. However, the fact that Keenbean knows the vault has that feature does implies that Van Dough was right to be skeptical about Keenbean's feigned ignorance since the voice-activated security is very high-tech and Keenbean is the Rich family's trusted GadgeteerGenius.

* SpannerInTheWorks: Cadbury's suggestion that Richie stay home for one his family's business trips foiled Van Dough attempt on their lives.

to:

* SpannerInTheWorks: Van Dough's attempt on the Rich family were spoiled by two different spanners. Cadbury's suggestion that Richie stay home for one instead of joining his family's business trips foiled Van Dough attempt on their lives.Richie's life while Keenbean's Scent-Analyzer device helps mitigate the damage of the explosion on the parent's plane.
**However the latter example is arguably a zigzagged trope since Van Dough's ultimate goal was to gain access to the 'wealth' of the Rich family vault; but the catch was that the vault was sealed with a voice lock that requires the Rich parents to open it. Thus fact that Van Dough's assassination attempt was largely foiled by Keenbean's 'spanner' prevented the possibility that the vault would be rendered largely inaccessible to him.
