** Gnorga is a [[LighterAndSofter watered down]] [[Disney/SleepingBeauty Maleficent,]] mixed with traits of [[Disney/TheRescuers Madame Medusa]] and [[Disney/TheLittleMermaid Ursula.]] she also has similarities to another queen of trolls, from the old Creator/HannaBarbera special "The Little Troll Prince" (who, coincidentally, was also voiced by Cloris Leachman).

* EvilIsHammy: Gnorga, oh so very much. This trope is her entire personality. Her line delivery is so over the top, it sounds like she's going to burst a blood vessel with each syllable.

* AesopAmnesia: Gus is a bratty child who fusses with his parents and demands that they do "what he wants to do". After everything he and Rosie go through in Central Park which sees Stanley reduced to a stone statue, his father approaches him with the chance to do some fun things with their day. Even after all his selfishness caused their whole ordeal, Gus' response to his father is "Do you think we can do what I wanna do?" The fact that he's much calmer about it the second time around still doesn't really excuse him.
