* Ramona's hair color changes twice in the film, starting out red, turning blue, and finally ending on green. She's introduced in a dream, during which music from VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaALinkToThePast plays in the background. Her hair colors correspond to the three Hylian goddesses; Din, the red goddess of power; Nayru, the blue goddess of wisdom, and Farore, the green goddess of power. There's a deeper meaning:
** Before Scott defeats Matthew Patel, Ramona's hair is bright red, foreshadowing the fact that Patel is the only ex defeated using brute force; in other words, a display of power. The red invokes Din.
** During his fights with Lucas Lee, Todd Ingram, and Roxy Richter, Ramona's hair is blue, representing Nayru. Scott defeats the three of them using his wits, [[spoiler: tricking Lee into grinding a rail at impossible speeds, making the super-powered vegan Ingram drink dairy, and learning of Roxy's weak point from Ramona]]. In other words, he gets wise.
** The for the final three exes, Kyle and Ken Katayanagi and Gideon Gordon Graves, has Ramona change her hair color to green, invoking Farore. This happens after Scott has a HeroicBSOD, and has to learn to get over himself and literally [[OneUp get a life]] to save her. In other words, he has to show courage.

** Gideon's number crops up constantly in the video game subtitles. When he summons his sword, for instance, his stat multiplier counts up all the way to X7 while he does so.

to:

* During Scott's fight with Lee's stunt team, they only attack from the left and right, and maybe one behind, until the point where they knock him down and start stomping him. They never really start their attack offscreen, and never gang up on him all at once until that point. Because of the RuleOfPerception. Notice how the gang-stomping switches to a wide shot so we can see them all. The second the camera pans off them, they lose effectiveness, and Scott trounces them all in seconds.

** Lucas also comes out of a trailer marked with a 2. And while Todd wearing a 3 on his shirt is less than subtle, he also tries to get out of having his "vegan powers" taken away by asking if he got a ''three'' strikes policy.




to:

* Todd's entire vegan style, and thus powers, are made as a TakeThat toward real life vegans (and hipsters in general) who think of themselves as being above other people. Envy not only literally says "being vegan just makes you better than others", but he's also made to be essentially overpowered (reads minds, flings Scott around with psychic powers, walks through bricks walls effortlessly, etc), even more so than the other exes at least in theory. Basically a sarcastic "Yeah, look how cool vegans are!" while also making him an idiot and becoming a shamed, quivering mess (right before he dies) when his vegan powers are taken away, which in itself doubles as saying those same egotistical vegans would have nothing to brag about if they weren't vegan.



** Correction, you GOT YOUR BROTHER KILLED... Ok, so he had an extra life, but [[NiceJobBreakingItHero that doesn't change the situation]].

* In ''ScottPilgrimVsTheWorld'' at first I thought Nega-Scott turning out to be pretty nice was just meant to be a joke. Later I realized that, if Nega-Scott is the negative version of Scott, and Nega-Scott is an okay guy, what does that say about Scott?

* In ''ScottPilgrimVsTheWorld'', Scott is basically a serial killer, except everybody he kills turns into coins. What if the movie took place in the real universe? Lucas Lee would have his skull cracked open on the sidewalk in the skateboarding accident. Gideon would have his head kicked off his body. Roxy would die because of a heart attack caused by the intensity of her orgasm.

**** To quote ''{{Millennium}}'s ''Frank Black, that would make him a spree killer, not a serial killer.

** The deleted scenes show Nega Scott appearing whenever Scott is wishy-washy or selfish in his relationships, first when he runs away instead of explaining his past relationship with Knives to Ramona, then when he lashes out and is a jerk to Ramona over the Evil Exes. By the time he's expected to fight Nega Scott though? He's realized the error of his ways, taken responsibility for his actions, and apologized to both Knives and Ramona. Considering how the movie focuses on themes of relationships, it's not a leap that Nega Scott represents Scott's inability to commit instead of his overall negative qualities and that beginning to grow into a more mature partner renders Nega Scott no longer dangerous.
