* KnowYourVines: The title character brushes some leaves off a stick and uses it as a water rod. She meets Wybie, and has a fairly long conversation with him, and at the end he throws in that the stick she's holding is poison oak. We even see a rash on her hands afterwards, which even becomes a plot point.

Added DiffLines:

* AdvertisingByAssociation: Was promoted as "From the director of ''WesternAnimation/TheNightmareBeforeChristmas''", leading many people believe that the movie is by Creator/TimBurton. Actually, it's Henry Selick who directed both movies, and Burton was only the producer of ''The Nightmare Before Christmas'' and had no involvement in ''Coraline''.

* CrapsaccharineWorld: The Other World.

to:

* CrapsaccharineWorld: The Other World. At first glance, it seems to be a dream world that's preferable to the real world, [[spoiler:but once The Other Mother's magic starts wearing off it starts becoming a nightmare world.]]



** Ironically, [[spoiler:this later happens to the Other Mother herself.]]



* FauxAffablyEvil: [[spoiler:The Other Mother.]]

to:

* FauxAffablyEvil: [[spoiler:The Other Mother.Mother is not as friendly as she first appears.]]


Added DiffLines:

** During the dining room scenes, though the Other Father and Coraline are happy to eat the food that's offered to them, the Other Mother never eats it herself. [[spoiler:That's because she feeds on something differently entirely.]]

* AnAesop: There's no place like home...even if it doesn't seem enjoyable at first.
** If someone warns you about danger, you should listen to them.
** If something seems too good to be true, it COULD be too good to be true.
** Not everyone is who they say they are.

** Also, how many viewers recognized the speech the other Spink and Forcible were reciting during their trapeze act? It's from ''Theatre{{Hamlet}}''. And it has especially interesting plot-correlations when you recall that when he originally spoke it in the play, Hamlet was being ''sarcastic''.

** Also, at one point the other mother cracks an egg yolk into a bowl that yields ''WesternAnimation/TheNightmareBeforeChristmas'' lead character Jack Skellington's image.



* ShyBlueHairedGirl: Averted. Coraline is [[LittleMissSnarker not shy]].



* TotallyRadical: Select pieces of Coraline's dialogue. It might come off as {{Narm}} to older viewers, since hardly any kid talks that way. The most {{egregious}} examples:
-->"Cripes almighty! How are my best trolls?!" (Upon seeing a moving picture of her friends)\\
"Ugh! Poo-ee!" (Upon sniffing a repugnant smell)
