* WhatYouAreInTheDark: During the climax of the movie when [[spoiler:Mei and Gabu are trapped in a blizzard and set to starve to death]], Mei relents that while he'd never want to get eaten if given the choice, [[spoiler:he'll let Gabu eat him so at least one of them can survive]]. At this point Gabu is completely isolated from anyone who might influence his decision on what to do, [[spoiler:and can't even hide that fact that his instincts would have him eat Mei]], but even after promising ''to'' Mei that he'll do so, he doesn't. [[spoiler:He'd rather freeze to death looking for food for both of them than eat Mei, even with no strings attached whatsoever.]]

* FurryReminder: While the goats are guilty of it as well, the wolves especially have a lot of humanlike behaviour, such as occasionally walking around on two legs, somehow making complex things such as a 'lid' on the hole they throw Gabu in, one wolf is wearing an eyepatch, and they have long and serious discussions. Come the climax of the film, Gabu [[spoiler:decides to fight them all to which the following battle turns them all into fully animalistic, vicious wolves, growling, barking and tearing at each other.]]

* HideYourGays: The children's books deliberately hide Mei's gender, making everyone at the time assume it was a boy-meets-girl love story. It wasn't until the movie that it was made clear both Mei and Gabu are male. The film still makes the homosexual romance aspect a bit subtle; Mei and Gabu only say they are "best friends" and they never do anything beyond holding hands and hugging. Their relationship dynamic and dialogue still come off as highly romantic, though.

Added DiffLines:

* NecessaryWeasel: The start of the friendship is not written believably. The fact that Mei so easily decided to trust and befriend Gabu, a wolf, after having a single pleasant conservation in a shack makes him seem really [[IdiotBall gullible and naive]] and comes off as foolish and farfetched even with the film's attempted justifications, particularly when he decides to ''go to sleep'' next to Gabu and nearly gets his ear eaten off. It's obvious what Gabu was thinking, and Mei can't even see it. But, it's all needed for the premise of the film to work.

It starts [[TitleDrop one stormy night]] when Mei and Gabu, both separated from their companions and terrified of lightning, happen to take shelter in the same barn. There in the dark where they can't see each other's species, they strike up a conversation and learn they have a lot in common. They promise to meet each other again at the same place, and say "one stormy night" as their secret phrase. Imagine their surprise the next day when they discover the truth! Mei and Gabu like each other so much already that they decide to put aside predator and prey in order to be secret friends. However, it's only a matter of time before their respective groups find out they've been fraternizing with the enemy, and brand them as traitors. Will these two be able to find a way to stay together?

* TemptingFate: While heading towards the mountain, it starts snowing. Mei and Gabu comments that it'll probably clear up the next day, only for it to cut to them braving their way through a blizzard.

* DidTheyOrDidntThey: As they're preparing to leave the secret cave Gabu hides them both in during the wolf attack, the pair's conversation turns to the full moon and how much they simply enjoy being with each other. It gets quite emotional, and the camera pans away as they decide to skip going home and just spend the night in the cave together. They don't get back to their respective homes until late the next day.



* DoesThisRemindYouOfAnything: The only brief time we see Mei getting mad is when he wakes up to Gabu sneaking back after having eaten some mice, to which Mei accuses him of doing it "every time when I sleep", and they have a small argument. (Sounds like a wife scolding her husband for eating midnight snacks or drinking behind her back.)
