* ScrewTheMoneyIHaveRules: Much of the problems between Mary Kate and Sean stem from him not wanting to fight her brother to get her rightful dowry. Due to their transatlantic CultureClash, he doesn't understand why she's obsessing about the money, and she doesn't understand why he won't fight for her legacy. In the end, Sean does demand the money, and when Danaher finally hands it over, he and Mary Kate promptly toss it into a furnace, starting the fight. Ultimately, it was more about Mary Kate's husband standing up for her and her honor than having the money.

* SuspiciouslyAproposMusic: The village men welcome Sean by singing "Wild Colonial Boy". Just as they get to the verse where the song's protagonist robs the local squireen, who should walk in but squire "Red" Will Danaher, who was "robbed" of White O' Morn by Sean. Lampshaded when Fahy, the accordionist, mockingly addresses Will as "squireen".

* UnwantedAssistance: During the big fight between Sean and Danaher when ever one of them was knocked down a guy would throw a bucket of water in his face, then the crowd would pick him up and throw him back into the fight.

* LetsFightLikeGentlemen: when Danaher and Wayne start their epic donnybrook, a slew of others join in, prompting Og Flynn to fire off warning shots and lay down the ground rules to the fight. They quickly settle on fighting by the Marquis of Queensbury rules, and then Danaher promptly kicks Wayne in the face.

A polite, soft-spoken American named Sean Thornton (Wayne) makes his way to the small Irish village of Innisfree. He's come back to his ancestral home to purchase his father's house, "White o' Morning", but in doing so, he rouses the ire of local squire "Red" Will Danaher ([=McLaglen=]), who wanted the property himself. Complicating matters is that on the journey to town, Thornton caught a glimpse of beautiful [[HeroesWantRedheads redhead]] Mary Kate Danaher (O'Hara), Will's sister, and the two fall in {{love|AtFirstSight}}. Unfortunately, even to say to Mary Kate, "Hi, how are you? Wanna marry me and live happily ever after?" Thornton has to get Will's permission first. And Will will join the Church of Ireland before THAT ever happens. HilarityEnsues.

* PintSizedPowerhouse: Sean in the book. In the movie he's... well, Creator/JohnWayne.

to:

* PintSizedPowerhouse: Sean in the book. Danaher mocks him by calling him Shawneen - which is Irish Gaelic for "Little Sean," and is also a pun on the Irish word "Shoneen," which means "upstart". In the movie he's... well, Creator/JohnWayne.

* MyGodWhatHaveIDone: John Wayne's expression during his flashback to the boxing match when he accidentally killed his opponent. The anguished expression he shows -- countered by his crew, who just stand and stare -- is heartbreaking.

They may have seen death in the ring before, but "Trooper Thorn" hadn't.
