* ThinlyVeiledDubCountryChange: The Portuguese dub was always stated to take place in Portugal, with Fowler's references to the RAF being changed to FAP[[note]][[IThoughtItMeant It means "Portuguese Air Force", you perverts]][[/note]] and Rocky, despite still being American, says he came there [[BlatantLies for the lovely latin chicks]]. And yet, all the characters have their original names and the text in the movie is clearly all in English, with some of it [[ReadingForeignSignsOutLoud being read out loud]]. Then again, [[JustifiedTrope there's not much they could do about that last one]].

!!Tropes featured:!!''Chicken Run'' provides examples of:
* AccentAdaptation:
** In the Swedish dub, Mr. And Mrs. Tweedy speak in a Scanian accent. [[note]] An accent in Southern Sweden which has similarities to Danish pronounciations. [[/note]] And Mac, to correspond to the Scottish accent, speaks heavily in a Jamtland accent (Jämtland). However, it wasn't enough to make her unintellegible, so she also speaks SesquipedalianLoquaciousness wise, and fast.
** The same thing happens in the Norwegian dub where Mac speaks in a heavy Northern accent with added SesquipedalianLoquaciousness.
** Something similar happens with the Dutch dub, giving Mac a Frisian accent, and compensating by letting her speak fast.
** The Portuguese dub gives three cases of this. Mac talks with a vague Madeira/Porto accent (muffled a bit by her fast speech and [[SesquipedalianLoquaciousness big words]]). Mr. Tweedy speaks in a distinctive Porto accent (But not Mrs. Tweedy, for some reason). And the mice talk in an Alentejo accent.

* HeroesWantRedheads: Rocky starts falling for Ginger after they dance during the "Flip, Flop, Fly" scene. Though he might have been a little interested beforehand at how hard she was impress contrary to what he was used to.

Added DiffLines:

* JustEatGilligan: While the arrival of the pie-making machine was inevitable, Rocky could have saved a lot of heartbreak had he just told the hens from the beginning that he can't really fly (he tries to tell Ginger after the dance scene, but by then they had already gotten their hopes up and their disappointment would have been more painful than it needed to be).


Added DiffLines:

* WouldHitAGirl: Both played straight ''and'' averted. Bunty accidently makes Fowler drop his medal into the mud, making him hit her, but afterwards is immensely apologetic and says it was ungentlemanly of him to do. [[DisasterDominoes Not that it helps him.]]

* AlmostKiss: Rocky and Ginger almost kiss at one point before being interrupted by Mrs. Tweedy. And again for the second time, when Mrs. Tweedy's farm goes up in a GRAVY explosion, causing quite a scare for Rocky and Ginger. Wait, how do you animate chickens kissing, anyway? (A quick [[StealthPun peck]] on the cheek, perhaps?)

* BrutalHonesty: Ginger when she tells the chickens they're being fattened up for slaughter. Rocky even calls her out for it, and he's proven right when the morale of the others is at its nadir after this speech.

* TheCasanova: Rocky, coupled with [[GettingCrapPastTheRadar Getting Crap Past The Radar]] below. He says he is brought to England because of [[StealthPun all the beautiful English chicks]]. A few moments later, he is mid-sentence in that scene when he meets the rest of the chickens properly, he turns to one of them, winks at her and goes smoothly, "Hi, how are you?", causing her to faint.

* ChekhovsGun: Why on earth did they make such a big deal of showing the Christmas lights getting caught on [[spoiler:the plane's wheel]]? Oh, now they're using it to climb! But I'm sure they don't serve any other... [[spoiler:WAIT A MINUTE! IS THAT MRS. TWEEDY?!?]]

** When Mr Tweedy is trying to repair the pie machine [[spoiler:after Rocky saves Ginger from it, he gets it working, but then it stops again.]] As he presses a button on it, it sends a jet of gravy right at Mrs Tweedy behind him and it hits her in the face. In retaliation she kicks him in the backside. And before that, he plugs in two cables and it covers Mrs Tweedy's face in smoke.

* IJustWantToBeFree: Ginger's personal reason for escaping is her desire to feel grass beneath her feet and go wherever she wants without a farmer to keep her down. The other chickens want this too, although they've become increasingly resigned to their lives, and Rocky doesn't want to go back to the circus either.

** A funny one later, in the form of the line, "Let's not lose our heads." Taken literally by the other chickens. Bad choice of words.

** In-universe, Nick and Fetcher get one. When Bunty slams into the fence during the thrust session, they are laughing at Nick's jibe at Bunty's expense, but their laughing turns to screaming as they realise Bunty is about to land on them.

** Invoked by Rocky, who tells Ginger that BrutalHonesty ''isn't'' going to work ("You know, if you want to motivate someone, ''don't mention death''.") Indeed, the chickens' morale is at its nadir after one of Ginger's speeches.

* NotSoAboveItAll: Fowler walks in on the other chickens dancing to music, organised by Rocky, and after Bunty tells him to shut up and dance, he also gets in on it, and a later shot shows him dancing with another hen with a rose in his mouth and a grin on his face.
