* ArtisticLicenseBiology: What the good vs. evil element can seem like. The rot-loving Boggans are the bad guys, despite the fact decay is just as much a part of nature as growth is.
** This isn't that at all - the Leafmen say that they need to maintain the balance, not actually destroy the Boggans.

* {{Retirony}}: [[spoiler: Queen Tara is on her last day of being in charge. When she's picking her replacement, the villains show up, and [[WeHardlyKnewYe well...]]]]]]]] Somewhat justified, as this was apparently the only day she would have been vulnerable due to her powers being ready to transfer.



* SkeletonsInTheCoatCloset: The Boggans wear the skulls and skins of their victims.
* SquareCubeLaw: A rare example of the small-scale side of the coin; this is why Leafmen and Boggans [[PintsizedPowerhouse are so strong]] and [[InASingleBound can jump so far]].
** Of course they don't explain this to the audience at all. For those familiar with the law it's a refreshing accuracy, but one wonders how many kids, who don't even know what a cube is, were left wondered why they good guys seemed so indifferent about throwing people off of birds to their apparent death all the time.

Until Mandrake fell a long distance and showed it was a slight inconvenience rather than the fatal drop it would've been at human sizes.

* DisneyVillainDeath: Subverted. It's set up with Mandrake, but thanks to the SquareCubeLaw a long fall just annoys him.
* DudeNotFunny: In-universe. MK doesn't like how Nod and [[OutOfCharacterMoment Ronin]] are making fun of stompers, particularly her dad who is sitting beside them and saddened of his daughter's departure. Then, she blatantly points out that she is also a stomper.

Interestingly, the Leafmen and much-larger deer isn't scary at all, presumably others like them. Also chipmunks, apparently.due to being a herbivore rather than an omnivore.
