* AluminumChristmasTrees: Modern viewers are often confused as to what [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bathing_machine a bathing machine]] (something mentioned briefly in the Alice books) is, seeing as they haven't been used since locker rooms became common.

* BunnyEarsLawyer: All the crew, to a certain degree, but the Butcher especially. He's described as someone who "looked an incredible dunce", but is able to teach the Beaver "more in five minutes far more than all books would have taught it in seventy years."

* FeatheredFiend: The Jub-Jub Bird. It's described as having a [[HellIsThatNoise "shrill and high scream" like a pencil squeaking on a slate, and significantly scares those who hear it, including the Beaver who "turned pale to the tip of its tail"]] and being desperate and in a constant state of passion. It remembers every friend it's ever met and [[ArsonMurderAndJaywalking always refuses a bribe]]. There are also some Snarks that "have feathers and bite".

Added DiffLines:

* BitCharacter: The Billiard Marker and Bonnet Maker really don't do much during the whole story. One member of the crew, the Boots, could well be TheGhost; he's mentioned ''once'', but doesn't even appear in any illustrations.


Added DiffLines:

* NoSenseOfHumor: Snarks have a hard time understanding jokes, as the Bellman explains:
-->The third is its slowness in taking a jest.
-->Should you happen to venture on one,
-->It will sigh like a thing that is deeply distressed:
-->And it always looks grave at a pun.
