Added DiffLines:

* VileVillainLaughableLackey: Wendell's the lackey to Reginald Charming's villain. Given the film's subject matter and Charming's portrayal, Wendell's presence seems downright bizarre.

* PluckyComicRelief: Wendell. To quote an annotated version of the video, "Pedophiles should NOT have comic relief sidekicks."

* BrokenAesop: Yellow Dyno's advice is to simply "take three steps back" and "run like the wind", but when Lyric tries it on Reginald Charming, RealityEnsues and he either frightens her into submission or overpowers her physically. She's only saved from a horrible fate by Yellow Dyno himself.

* PapaWolf: Yellow Dyno is clearly meant to be this toward kids in general, though his [[TotallyRadical mannerisms and speech patterns]] can make it [[IncrediblyLamePun tricky]] to take him seriously.
