* RoyalsWhoActuallyDoSomething: The royal family of [=DunBroch=] qualifies as a whole: Merida is a BadassPrincess. Elinor is shown in the opening meal scene receiving letters of many sorts, thus implying she is the one handling matters of state. Fergus was explicitly chosen as their king after he led the other clans to victory against invading Vikings and whether it's evil monster bears or invading armies he takes care of it. Even the toddler triplets are crafty tricksters capable of distracting an entire castle. The other clan leaders and their heirs are also shown as being pretty battle-happy, especially against each other.

* {{Dedication}}: When Mor'du is killed towards the end of the film he turns into a will o' the wisp and we realise that they are the spirit of the dead. During the credits a will o' the wisp appears over the credit "dedicated with love and gratitude to [[AppleMacintosh Steve Jobs]], our partner, mentor and friend."

Added DiffLines:

* LessonsInSophistication: The film shows us Merida's impatience with her princess lessons and her clear preference for archery and horseback riding. However, her indifference is shown as somewhat immature, with the movie going to some lengths to help her see her mother's side of things.
