* ChildrenForcedToKill: Yet another horrifying aspect of the Hunger Games. Perfectly ordinary children are forced in a situation where, if they do not kill others, they themselves will die (excepting the Career Tributes).

* EarlyInstallmentWeirdness: Mostly involving the look of District 12 and the Capitol. The former was far more rural than it would be in later installments and the latter would have far more high-rises than we had seen here. Also, Katniss is initially portrayed as brunette, while Jennifer Lawrence would later dye her hair black (which is her hair color in the books).

** The Peacekeepers wear modern riot gear, while the sequels would show them wearing enclosed armor.

Added DiffLines:

* NotEvenBotheringWithTheAccent: In the books, people from the Capitol nearly universally exhibit their own unique speech affectations, which are mocked by Katniss and Gale, and mentioned in regards to several characters exhibiting them. In this film and the three following it, however, only Effie exhibits an accent (which is interpreted as similar to the mid-Atlantic voice of 1930s cinema). This

* AgeLift: Two examples: Firstly, Cinna, described as a young man in the book, is played by a much older Lenny Kravitz. Secondly, in an instance of inverted DawsonCasting, the character of Clove, heavily implied to be 18 in the book, is stated to be 15 in the film, as she is played by then-14-year-old IsabelleFuhrman.

* IdiotBall: The Career tributes [[FailedASpotCheck fail to spot a deadly threat]] that Rue notices from further distance and all go to sleep in the same turn without a sentry, in a kill or be killed scenario. This is quickly exploited against them.

* AdvertisedExtra: Liam Hemsworth as Gale received a lot of press for having a larger role in the subsequent movies. However in THIS movie, he only speaks in two scenes and is TheVoiceless in his other scenes.

* TheVoiceless: Foxface maybe says a word or two during her interview with Caesar, but this is out of focus so it's hard to tell.

** In the books, Haymitch is described as having dark hair, typical of the Seam. In the film version, he is blonde.

Added DiffLines:

* PaintingTheMedium: While Katniss is cutting off the tracker jacker hive, she gets stung a lot, which leads to the editing and visuals briefly getting messed up and distorted (and that's before the hallucination) to reflect her disoriented mental state.

Added DiffLines:

* AdaptationalUgliness: There was a lot of complaining by fans that both Josh Hutcherson (Peeta) and Sam Claflin (Finnick) are too ''un''attractive for their roles.
