* A will-o'-the-wisp appears over the dedication to Steve Jobs in the end credits. In some parts of Europe, wisps are considered to be spirits of the dead. Knowing that adds a bit of gravity to the visual. [[spoiler: It also gives weight to the idea that the wisps seen throughout the film are relatives of Mor'du's.]]

* Why does Merida keep what happened to Elinor a secret from Fergus instead of just telling him the truth? First, Fergus doesn't believe in magic, which he makes very clear in the prologue by mocking the existence of Wisps. Second, he hunts bears for sport in the hope of one day killing Mor'du and avenging his leg (much like Captain Ahab was with MobyDick), to the point that he's called the Bear King. Merida even has to remind Elinor about that. Third, even though the whole problem is Merida's fault to begin with, she's too stubborn to admit it.

** It's much worse than that. Historically Eurasian brown bears and even polar bears have inhabited Scotland, but both were extinct by medieval times, and there ''definately'' weren't any American black bears like Mor'du or [[spoiler:Elinor]] running about. All of Fergus' trophies are, notably, black bears...

* ''Brave'' is dedicated to the memory of Steve Jobs. He was the one who greenlighted the film in the first place. Anyone familiar with the early history of {{Pixar}} knows that it was literally Steve Jobs who kept the company afloat, back when it was trying to eke out an identity making medical imaging workstations. He was also a ''very'' influential negotiator who steered Pixar during the heated disputes with Disney during the Eisner years.

* According to the [[http://www.wired.com/geekdad/2012/02/new-brave-trailer-gets-it-right article about]] the [[ShownTheirWork archery]] in the movie, Young MacGuffin's "arrow should have hit the dirt about 10 feet in front of the target" but it manages to hit it despite him "doing all the work with his hand, wrist and forearm, not using his considerable back muscles at all". Of course, this was also the suitor that was capable of using a [[ChairmanOfTheBrawl very long wooden bench]] as a weapon. He is literally strong enough to use just his hand, wrist and forearm to hit the target [though it did nothing for his aim]. Given that one of the first things young MacGuffin does when being introduced is break a solid log with just his hands, it's likely he handled the bow that way because he was afraid he'd break it.

Well aside from the fact that [[spoiler:Mor'du]] didn't have anyone who was in on the spell to help him hide, [[spoiler:Elinor]] only ate a very small piece of the cake.
