** A subtle one. At Agnes' sixth birthday party at the start of the movie, when Gru is [[ItMakesSenseInContext dressed as a fairy]] and a girl asks him "How come you're so fat?", he answers "Because my house is made of candy, and sometimes I eat instead of facing my problems." At the Cinco de Mayo party at the end of Act 2, Gru is seen wearing a chip hat; Eduardo states (and the directors' commentary confirms) that he was given it because he is lonely, and might need to "drown [his] sorrows in guacamole". (A little later, [[spoiler:Margo is given one because Antonio dumped her.]])

* StandardFemaleGrabArea: Despite Lucy being an ActionGirl who easily incapacitated Gru and his minions earlier, [[spoiler:Eduardo]] has only to grab her upper-arm to turn her into a DamselInDistress. Probably justified by him still having some of his CharlesAtlasSuperpower from younger days, so his grip might be quite strong; plus they were in the middle of a party, with several civilians (mostly children) around, so Lucy, being a trained secret agent, probably wanted to avoid collateral damage from fighting back.

And the guy who grabbed her is known for being a trained secret agent, probably wanted to avoid strong. She even looks around at all the people who could potentially be collateral damage from fighting back.damage.]]

* BigEater: Agnes, apparently, as when Gru and the girls arrive at the Cinco de Mayo party, Gru tells her to go easy on the churros.
* BigFancyHouse: Despite it being far too big for the peak it's built on (part of it extends off the top and is supported by beams) Eduardo's hacienda is this.


Added DiffLines:

** Possibly. El Macho's [[spoiler:faked]] death involved riding a shark into an active volcano with 250 pounds of dynamite strapped to his chest, [[spoiler:and he intends to kill Lucy in the same way at the end.]] In the first film, Vector owned a shark, which was housed in a tank in his living room floor.


Added DiffLines:

** Gru and the girls attending the Cinco de Mayo party at Eduardo's hacienda. [[spoiler:That is, up until Gru follows Eduardo and discovers he is indeed El Macho.]]

** When Gru decides to take Lucy up on her offer to locate the PX-41 serum, he remarks to the girls that he will save the world. [[spoiler:He does, in more ways than one, when almost all of the Minions are mutated by the serum, he and the girls turn them back to normal before they can be launched at the world's major cities.]]

* MeaningfulEcho: Agnes reciting her poem to Gru. The first time she does it, it's with a blank expression and said in a monotone voice, because she doesn't feel like she can properly do it on account of not actually having a mother. [[spoiler:Agnes recites the poem again at the end at the wedding, and does it much better because now she does have a mother.]]
