* KindheartedSimpleton: Poor Michael. In the book he used to be just an ordinary kid - stupid compared to Matilda, but so was everybody. Now he's gone full idiot. He's still no villain, though; he doesn't seem to have the capacity. Mr and Mrs Wormwood's anti-intellectual world of loud noises and bright colours suits him just fine.

* AbusiveParents: Possibly more neglectful than actually abusive in the Wormwoods' case; on the other hand, the abuse Miss Honey received as a child has left her terrified for life. Worse yet, everybody else's parents make a [[CrowdSong song and dance routine]] about their own little miracles.

* BiggerOnTheInside: The kids ponder Bruce's ability to down that massive cake with the lyrics "Or maybe your largeness/Is like the [[Series/DoctorWho TARDIS]]:/Considerably roomier inside."

* AdaptationalAttractiveness: Bruce Bogtrotter is, in most versions, completely different-looking from how he was described in the book and depicted in the film, and is no longer overweight.

* EducationalSong: [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=s6PyELiYel0 The ABC, of sorts]]; more importantly, it's a guide to surviving your first day at a particularly tough school.

* BittersweetEnding: [[spoiler: Before the climax, the librarian narrates that there isn't a happy ending, referring to the fact Matilda is still raised by her abusive parents. Though this takes place right before Matilda does get her happy ending.]] It's possible said "unhappy ending" is [[spoiler: alludes to the fact that the Wormwoods would never really change for the better, though there's some hope for Mr. Wormwood.]]
