* CatharsisFactor: Watching Jess sending Gary the bullying-jock flying into the wall with a MegatonPunch for [[spoiler: making a disrespectful joke about Leslie's death]] was oh so satisfying.

* MegatonPunch: When Gary crossed the line mocked [[spoiler: a grieving Jess]] about [[spoiler: Leslie's death]], the latter gave a well-deserved punch that sent the bully ''flying'' into the classroom wall. [[CatharsisFactor And it was beautiful to behold.]]

* AgeLift: Minor example, with Jess and Leslie going from ten in the book to twelve in the movie. WordOfGod says this was done to emphasize that their feelings for each other were more than platonic.

* CheerfulChild: Leslie, especially in the 2007 film. May Belle as well, given that she has endless amounts of optimism.

* JerkWithAHeartOfGold: Jesse's father, Jack Aarons (Jesse Sr. in the novel). He is very strict towards his son, and even harsh at times, but it's understandable given the family's level of poverty. He's also shown to be a good parent in spite of it all, and the scene where [[spoiler: he comforts his son after Leslie's death]] is one of the more poignant moments, especially in the film.
