Added DiffLines:

* EvilCounterpart: Dolf to Alfred. They both experience traumas during childhood Alfred loses his parents and siblings too soon after he hatched and ends up ''twice'' in a cell on ungrounded charges, while Dolf has serious issues with his origins (see ParentalIssues below). Dolf bullies Alfred for being raised by a mole while dying his yellow beak black out of fear of being bullied himself. At adulthood, both birds prove themselves to be highly capable and charismatic, but unlike Dolf, Alfred doesn't let his past traumas to influence his presence and justify selfish and evil acts.

Added DiffLines:

* MuggedForDisguise: when Alfred and Rangpang need uniforms from National Crows Party soldiers in order to move around unnoticed, they use a combination of this trope and GoneSwimmingClothesStolen. Alfred pretends to be drowning, causing 2 soldiers who notice him to quickly take off their uniforms and dive into the water to save him. Alfred promptly swims to the shore where he and Rangpang steal the discarded uniforms.

Added DiffLines:

* SpoilerOpening: The page image, which appears at the start of the shows theme song since as early as episode 1, effectively spoils Professor Paljas and Winnie will become important characters later on long before they make their debutes in the show. It also shows Dolf in his presidential uniform, thus spoiling his story arc.

Added DiffLines:

* StewedAlive: Alfred has this happening to him in one episode when he and the others are captured by some angry natives who decide to cook them into soup. Although he survives, it is a pretty disturbing scene, not at all PlayedForLaughs.

* AdaptationDistillation / AdaptationExpansion: The show expands greatly upon the original 1976 one-man musical. The musical itself was roughly adapted into episode 21 of the show ("The King Takes A Loan"). There are considerable differences; some of the musical's more outlandish characters (among other things, a [[AnimateInanimateObject talking ladder]] and a [[GeniusLoci sentient river]]) were taken out. In the musical, the king was the BigBad and Alfred ends up becoming the new king. In the show, the episode direclty leads up to the infamous Emperor Dolf arc.

* FriendlyEnemy: Alfred and Dolf have this dynamic throughout the first season, before Dolf crosses the MoralEventHorizon in the Emperor Dolf arc. Even when Dolf vengefully confronts Alfred after he has been defeated, Aftred seems more concerned about his former frenemy's mental well-being than about the things Dolf might do to him.
