* EvilTeacher: Pink's old maths teacher. Somewhat sympathetic in that his hatred of his students is part of the ViciousCycle theme of the movie/album.

* WorldWarII: A major theme throughout the story; Pink's father was killed in the war when he was a baby and thus was never a part of his life, "Goodbye Blue Sky" is about the London Blitz, Pink's abusive maths teacher was a veteran and channels his trauma by tormenting his students, and of course there's Pink's neo-Nazi fantasy/hallucination in the third act.

The album and movie share the same story. The first half of the movie and album introduce us to Pink and his insanely craptastic childhood. Events and circumstances in his childhood life--an overbearing/overprotective mum, a father who died in UsefulNotes/WorldWarII, and authoritarian teachers--cause him to shun human interaction because he's afraid he'll be hurt, every incident that causes him pain serving as just another brick in the "wall" that he is constructing between himself and the outside world. As an adult, Pink becomes a a super famous rock star and "fills the empty spaces" of his wall with the typical vices of the rich and famous: SexDrugsAndRockAndRoll.

After Pink finds out that his wife cheated on him, he trashes his hotel room and scares away a groupie before he finally [[HeroicBSOD snaps]] and completes his wall, shutting himself off from humanity entirely, and the album and movie take us inside the mind of Pink for the second half. After being revived from a drug coma and forcefully shot up with even ''more'' drugs by his managers to get him on-stage, he imagines that he has become the very same force that started his wall--Fascists (okay, "hammer army")--and begins to order the audience to hate on various minority groups. Eventually, he retreats further into his mind during a moment of brief clarity, and puts himself on trial with a giant arse as judge and warped visions of his childhood fears as jury, and forces himself to tear down his wall as a result.

** The "poems" that little Pink gets taken from him and read condescendingly to the class in school are from the lyrics to "Money".
** The poems Bob Geldof mumbles in the "Stop" sequence include lyrics from "Your Possible Pasts", from ''Music/TheFinalCut'', and "5:11 AM (The Moment Of Clarity)" from Waters' solo album ''The Pros And Cons Of Hitch-Hiking'' (which, as detailed in the WhatCouldHaveBeen section, was originally offered to the band as a possible concept along with ''The Wall'').
