* WhamLine:
** "Or maybe...she'd just ''love'' something to ''[[ChildEater eat]]''."
** The entirety of the Ghost children's story shows the Beldam's true nature, but this line in particular:
-->"She said that she loved us...but she locked us in here...''and ate up our lives...''"
** "You're just a copy she made of the real Mr. B..." "Not even that...''[[VoiceOfTheLegion anymore]]''..."
* WhamShot:
** The first appearance of the Other Mother...turning around to reveal that she has buttons for eyes.
** The scene where Coraline opens the box that will allow her to live with her Other parents forever...and sees the buttons. It's then that it dawns on her what exactly the Other Mother wants her to do...
** The Other Mother's transformation as she counts to three in response to Coraline's defiance.
** Three of them during the trials Coraline has to go through to get the ghost eyes--[[spoiler:the Other Father appearing forcibly strapped to his mantis tractor, the Other Spink and Forcible bursting out of the candy wrapper made of taffy, fused together and a rat appearing inside the Other Mr. B's empty suit.]]

** As the film is set in the state of Oregon, has a portal to another dimension, and in said dimension dwells a demon which tricks her victims by pretending to be inviting and friendly, one may draw connections to Disney's ''WesternAnimation/GravityFalls''. The series takes place in Oregon, [[spoiler:has a hidden portal to another dimension]] and is threatened by a [[FauxAffablyEvil seemingly friendly]] demon who acts through subtle influences in the real world. The town itself is home to numerous mysteries, secrets, and hidden doors, none of which are ever fully explained and some not even touched upon, this being due to the nature of the location itself as a [[TownWithADarkSecret place of strangeness]] rather than caused by the influence of the antagonist; if the final scene in Coraline is anything to go by, the Pink Palace may be the same way; a strange place with many mysteries, where there also happens to live the Beldam.

* RealityIsUnrealistic: Several people on IMDB complained about Coraline's JerkAss attitude. Ever seen an upset 11-year old? Ever seen an 11-year old who's gone through a long road trip to move into a house in the middle of nowhere, gets stuck with annoying neighbors and ignored by their parents? Yeah...

* AdaptationExpansion: ** Apparently Gaiman himself requested this trope. He saw that the original script was almost exactly like the book and told them to make some changes. After all, if someone wanted something ''exactly'' like the book, they had the book.

** This also applies to the Other Mr Bobinsky's circus tent.

* CerebusCallBack: Mr Bobinski's circus is one of the things that wows Coraline on her second visit and is the sight of some amusing moments. [[spoiler:When she looks for the third ghost child's eyes she ends up getting attacked by everything in the circus. And the cute jumping mice turn out to be scary-looking rats in disguise.]]

* CreepyCircusMusic: At the end when Coraline visits the Other Bobinsky [[spoiler: to retreive the eye from him]], the music (not surprisingly) has a faint resemblance to circus music, but in a very creepy tone.

Added DiffLines:

* FlatCharacter: The Other Bobinski, Forcible and Spink. Justified because they're constructs of the Other Mother and exist solely to entertain Coraline (and thus lure her into the Beldam's trap).


Added DiffLines:

* NonMaliciousMonster: Among the creatures in the Other World, only the Other Mother is actively malicious. The Other Father and the Other Wybie end up entering LoveRedeems mode because they were made to love Coraline and be her friend respectively, while the Other Forcible, Spink and Bobinski are barely sentient due to the fact that their only purpose was to entertain Coraline.

Coraline Jones moves from Pontiac, Michigan with her mother and father to the Pink Palace Apartments in Ashland, Oregon: an old house subdivided into three residences. With her parents frantically working on a gardening catalog in order to make ends meet and paying little attention to her, Coraline begins to feel neglected. While exploring the house, she discovers a small door with a brick wall behind it. That night, she is awoken by a mouse in her room, which she chases to the small door. She opens it, but instead of a brick wall, she finds a long, glowing passage, leading to another world.

At the other end, Coraline finds herself in the "Other World", which is inhabited by her "Other Mother" and "Other Father". They are perfect, idealized doubles of her real parents; except with black buttons in place of their eyes and pay close attention to Coraline. After enjoying a home-cooked meal made by the Other Mother, she spends the night in the Other World and awakens back in her bed in the real world.
