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.

Added DiffLines:

* TickleTorture: Coraline suffers this at the hands of some plants in the Other Father's garden. May have been FriendlyTickleTorture based on the tone at the time.

* ChildEater: [[spoiler:The Other Mother. It's how the ghost children died, and what would have happened to Coraline if she'd not escaped the room the Other Mother locked her in after disobeying her.]]

Added DiffLines:

* ShoeSlap: Coraline gets mad at Wybie at one point and throws the heeled boots Other Mother made for her at him while chasing after him in the rain. (In the commentary, the filmmakers note that this would have very different connotations in the middle east.)

** 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 (who may live there because of the mysterious strangeness, rather than being the cause of it).

** The kindness that the Other Father and Wybie show Coraline can be explained in that the Other Mother created them for one purpose; to please Coraline. What did she want most? [[IJustWantToBeLoved friends and family that loved her enough not to neglect her]], unlike what she perceived about her real parents. Therefore, the Other Mother created them to [[ExactWords love Coraline unconditionally]]. Unfortunately for her, this [[NiceJobFixingItVillain backfired]] horribly. Unfortunately for THEM, the Other Mother [[YouHaveFailedMe doesn't take kindly to insubordination]].
