* NotMeThisTime: After Marvin's animal instincts start taking over, Marvin finds himself blacking out and waking up in strange places, such as in a butcher shop having eaten almost everything inside. However, Marvin is innocent of [[spoiler:attacking the hunter; that was Rianna's doing, as the hunter was after her turkey vulture so she had to scare him off.]]



* SingleWomanSeeksGoodMan: Marvin and Rianna's first meeting doesn't go smoothly as Marvin embarasses himself, but Marvin gradually wins her over by being a nice guy, and Rianna clearly prefers Marvin to the overbearing Sisk when she gets out of Sisk's flirting by pretending Marvin had already set up a date with her.

* SingleWomanSeeksGoodMan: Marvin and Rianna's first meeting doesn't go smoothly as Marvin embarasses himself, but Marvin gradually wins her over by being a nice guy, guy (although it also helps that Rianna doesn't notice some of Marvin's uncontrollable animal behavior, such as fighting with one of the animals at her shelter), and Rianna clearly prefers Marvin to the overbearing Sisk when she gets out of Sisk's flirting by pretending Marvin had already set up a date with her.

* NeverMessWithGranny: One of the obstacles in the police officer examination course is a harmless-looking old woman who quickly turns out to be proficient in hand-to-hand combat.


Added DiffLines:

* ShoutOut: The scientist who put Marvin back together using animal parts owns a pet monkey, but in-universe, the monkey used to belong to a pop star. As the scientist says, the monkey "really misses the pop star. I'm not allowed to say who." Then the monkey starts [[Music/MichaelJackson moonwalking]].

Added DiffLines:

* TheBully: Sgt. Sisk.


Added DiffLines:

* GranolaGirl: Rianna "Hummingbird" Holmes is a downplayed example; she's introduced saving a tree on television, and she works at an animal shelter.
* KidsAreCruel: The children visiting the police station, after learning that Marvin is just an evidence file clerk and has not actually passed the police officer examination yet, handcuff and attack Marvin before writing LOSER on his chest with spray paint (Sgt. Sisk interrupts them after they write LOSE, but because Sisk is a bully himself, he finishes the word by writing the R himself).


Added DiffLines:

* NoRespectGuy: Marvin, at the beginning of the movie, but this changes after he gets his animal upgrades and is able to accomplish great feats.


Added DiffLines:

* SingleWomanSeeksGoodMan: Marvin and Rianna's first meeting doesn't go smoothly as Marvin embarasses himself, but Marvin gradually wins her over by being a nice guy, and Rianna clearly prefers Marvin to the overbearing Sisk when she gets out of Sisk's flirting by pretending Marvin had already set up a date with her.
