* CondescendingCompassion: The Thanksgiving play fra ''Values'' is dripping with this until Wednesday goes off-script. The pilgrims' lines are almost entirely about how they most be good and gracious hosts towards the "savages" with "strange customs", and while noting that said "savages" are civilized, the pilgrims still praises their own civilization as being much better because they have shoes and last names.

* {{Flanderization}}: Before Fester gets his memory back at the end of the first film, he's a street-smart tough guy. But in ''Values'' he's regressed into a childlike oddball with NoSocialSkills. Although the thing is his personality in the second film is probably closer to the original character from the TV series and comic strip, at the beginning of the first film he doesn't know he's Fester and is effectively a different person, as he spends more time with the family he gradually starts to feel more like an Addams. And lets face it even as an amnesiac he was a PsychopathicManchild just more conniving thanks to Craven's influence. But if you compare the two films it is slightly odd how much he regresses in the sequel.

* CanisLatinicus: The Addams family motto, "Sic gorgiamus allos subjectatos nunc!", is translated in the movie as "We gladly feast upon those who would subdue us." However, according to [[http://thecampvs.com/2009/03/28/bad-movie-latin-2/ this site]], the actual translation of the Latin is as follows: “Thus do we growl that (our) big toes have, at this moment, been thrown up from below!” The site offers a more accurate translation for the intended motto: “Laeti vescimur nos subacturis.”

* MistreatmentInducedBetrayal: Gordon, [[spoiler: before his amnesia is cured and he realises he is in fact Fester after all]], decides to side with the Addams family and betray his mother after she belittles him one time too many. [[spoiler: He stops Gomez picking the book from the bookshelf that opens the vault, and instead picks one that creates a violent storm in the room to incapacitate his mother and the lawyer - by accident this also gives him his true memories back.]]
