* At one point, North makes mention of how the elves only ''think'' they're the ones making the toys, whereas the yetis are doing all the actual work. But if that's the case, then the elves are outclassed in terms of both combat and everyday labor - even if North simply doesn't want to get rid of them, where did they come from in the first place?

* If Jack's only way of spreading fun amongst the children of the world is through blizzards and snowball fights and the like - winter things - then what happens after he becomes a Guardian when a child from the tropics needs help with having fun?

* Jack and Tooth can both fly on their own, [[CaptainObvious obviously]] - when the team sees Sandy being ganged up on by Pitch's nightmares, why doesn't one or both of them try flying ahead to help him, instead of all of them riding up in North's slower-moving sleigh. I do realize that between them noticing Sandy fighting on his own and Pitch shooting him through the back, there probably wasn't enough time for them to have made it to him before it happened, but it still raises the question of why neither of them tried before he was struck.

** He took them off to avoid breaking the ice. Ice skates are, effectively, a boot with a blade on the bottom. The blade means the full weight of the wearer is on two thin strips of ice, whilst taking his skates off when he realised the ice was thin helped disperse his weight across a larger area and therefore avoid putting more pressure than needed on the ice. He probably figured that he could warm his feet up again after he saved his sister. Anyone looking to rescue someone will do things that are temporarily uncomfortable (like standing on ice) because the overall aim is more important than being comfortable.

*** Jack was surprised when Tooth told him all of the Guardians had past lives and families. For 300 years, he'd just wanted to know what his purpose was - he didn't even know there was anything else he could've been looking for.

*** Maybe to get back at North for forcing him to go on the sled earlier on?

*** Well, you'd think that they'd at least have a better understanding of the situation, as they already have believers and used to be different people. They could have pointed him in the direction of the Tooth Fairy in regards to his memories, and help him out with the rest.

** Why would he think they'd have answers for that in the first place? He's surprised when the Toothfairy tells him the teeth contain memories, so he has no reason to believe before them they'd be of any help.

* I know Jack and the Guardians had a mutual dislike in the beginning of the movie, but how come Jack didn't approach any of these guys about his memories and purpose when he learned of their existence?

** I knew what the Sandman was in elementary school. He even made appearances in some of my favorite shows (''Series/AreYouAfraidOfTheDark'' and ''WesternAnimation/MuppetBabies''). Kids might not look forward to his visits like the Tooth fairy and Santa Claus, but chances are good they'll know who he is and what he does. As long as they don't scoff and think, "That's ridiculous -- there's no such thing as the Sandman," they believe.
