* HumansAreTheRealMonsters: Played with. The "[[ManInWhite White]] [[MadScientist coats]]" certainly qualify here, even to the point of being [[HumansAreCthulhu Cthulhu-esque]], but most of the humans are three dimensional and are only after Rowf and Snitter because they killed sheep and eventually [[spoiler: a man]]. Completely averted in the case of Snitter's idea of "Masters," whom he almost deifies.

Known for being DarkerAndGrittier than the previous work, it is set in the [[GrimUpNorth gray and wintry fells]] of England's [[OopNorth Lake District]]. The animated adaptation is an [[WhatDoYouMeanItsNotForKids infamous]] [[TearJerker/WesternAnimation Tear Jerker]] as well (to the point that many call it "a British version of Anime/GraveOfTheFireflies with dogs"); the original print of the film was censored for wide release and is [[KeepCirculatingTheTapes considered rare]].

* WaifProphet: Snitter is a bit of an {{expy}} for [[WatershipDown Fiver]].

* {{Xenofiction}}: The dogs' [[DogsAreDumb limited]] intelligence is portrayed surprisingly realistically, although they are much more intelligent than the [[CarnivoreConfusion monstrous beasts]] of ''WatershipDown''.

* NightmareFuel: A deeply painful example, coupled with TearJerker and tapping right into victim psychology. As Rowf seeks Snitter, he ponders the meaning of life and how all-consumingly his decisions were driven by hatred of men and fear of being drowned again... [[spoiler:and that he actually loves men, even the whitecoats, and has an innate desire to be in the drowning tank because he just wants to be a good dog.]] Good argument for trigger warnings.

* NightmareFuel: A deeply painful example, coupled with TearJerker and tapping right into victim psychology. Not only does the story bookend with fear of drowning, Rowf's internal struggle is shown to be shockingly realistic. As Rowf seeks Snitter, he ponders the meaning of life and how all-consumingly his decisions were driven by hatred of men and fear of being drowned again...
