* AssholeVictim: The Fox and the Cat become handicapped for real and in misery. Their ending is sad, but their previous attempted murder of Pinocchio has cemented any possibility of feeling pity for them.

* AlternativeCharacterInterpretation: a whole book, "Pinocchio: un libro parallelo" (Pinocchio: a parallel book), by Giorgio Manganelli, is dedicated to this aim. The author remarks that some figure are really ambiguous and suspended between life and death: the Blue Fairy appears to be the main one. On her first apparition, the Blue Fairy herself states to be a dead girl waiting for her coffin. She is very pale. Azure hair is often a characteristic of corpses. After Pinocchio is hanged by the Cat and the Fox and almost dead, she is declared a fairy and becomes a helper of the main character, a sort of surrogate sister and mother. After, she is said to be dead another time. Also the Cricket is innocently creepy (but not like the Fairy): now dead (killed by Pinocchio at the begin), now a ghost, now living (in the house of the Blue Fairy). A conjecture of Manganelli is that the Fairy was a dying goddess and mistress of beasts (dogs, woodpeckers, ...), and that the "sacrifice" of Pinocchio at the oak gave her a temporary new life. The fact that Pinocchio is originated by wood needs consideration, too and it is possible to think that Pinocchio has some hidden , unknown connection with her world.

* {{Foreshadowing}}: There are several hints that the Fox and the Cat are [[BitchInSheepsClothing not the kindhearted crippled philanthropists they seem to be]] before they steal Pinocchio's money. Like when they tell Pinocchio that education and studying is how they became crippled. And when they arrive at the inn on their way to the field of miracles (a non existent field the two made up where money grows on trees) to eat and rest (the real reason being as a place they could lose Pinocchio, in order to attack him in disguise later), the narrator states that they were very sick and could only eat 35 mullets and 25 chickens for dinner, and leave Pinocchio to pay for it all (under the excuse that [[BlatantLies they were so polite, they did not want to him offend him by not giving him the honor of paying the bill.]]) And if that weren't enough for Pinocchio to see through, when they attack him in disguise later for his money, Pinocchio [[WhatDoYouMeanItsForKids cuts off the Cat's paw.]] The next day, when Pinocchio sees the Cat has lost his paw too, he [[TooDumbToLive does not put two and two together.]] So sadly, not realizing any of these useful warnings, he is tricked into burying his money in the field of miracles, and while he goes to wait in the city, the two dig up his money and Pinocchio is robbed.
