*** If that's a part of it, maybe it's a reference to [[HowDoYouLikeThemApples apples?]]

*** Oh, Satan was ''still'' a monster when you take into account everything he does in the movie. It's just that TomWaits' portray of him is AffablyEvil with EvenEvilHasStandards thrown in for good measure.

** Considering that Tony was ostensibly based on real-life hated political figure Tony Blair, I'd probably hazard that it's not meant to be a positive portrayal.

** Parental nicknames are normally odd things based on in-jokes - like how Parnassus and Valentina play at fisticuffs. This troper's stepsister is called Cheddarbob by her father; the origins of that name are long lost in the sands of time. Scrumpy's practically normal.

*** Anton was pushed, he didn't make a choice.

** Most of this troper's nicknames from her parents had nothing to do with her name.
** Nickname probably comes from the Doctor at one time calling her “scrumptious.” That would explain Anton’s embarrassment over using the same term early on in the film.

** Tony was trying to save Valentina because he thought that doing one good deed would make up for the many horrible, horrible deeds he did before the troupe found him. Anton wasn't necessarily trying to stop him from saving Valentina, but at least make sure than Valentina knew first what a horrible person he was in real life. And as soon as Valentina learned what he had done ([[spoiler: HARVESTING THE ORGANS OF CHILDREN FOR PROFIT]]) she hated him. So yes, ThatTroper is in serious need of a reconsideration of things. And Satan wasn't such a bad guy.

** It was shown that he [=~Wouldn't Hurt A Child~=] or otherwise rejects minors in the Imaginarium, as the only authority on what goes on beyond the mirror we not only can take his word that giving into temptation results in NiceJobBreakingItHero or making the "right" choice = GoodFeelsGood based on the person in question we also see it demonstrated in film with the Dr's daughter, and note that his wife suffered a case of [=~But I Can't Be Pregnant!~=] around the age of 60 indicating that he was attempting to TakeAThirdOption or going for LoopholeAbuse. Overall to me he gives off a GoodIsNotNice vibe more than a standard CharacterAlignment.
