* NiceMice: ''Drastically'' subverted when Mary Katherine's belief in this trope, despite Nod's warnings, nearly gets her killed. When you're the size of a small insect, an ordinary field mouse is a ''predator'', not something to squee over.

Now with [[Characters/{{Epic}} character sheet]]!



* ArtisticLicenseBiology:
** Mub and Grub are portrayed with teeth on the inside of the mouth and a human-like tongue. Mollusk jaws are nothing like that at all. Instead, a tongue-like organ called the radula (which is covered with teeth) is used to cut food. Putting their teeth on their tongue would be more realistic.

* TooDumbToLive: Nim. He has the MacGuffin that the bad guys are searching all over for, and what does he do? He holds it up to the crowd that's gathered at his tree, and tells each and every one of them exactly how important it is. And then, he sends out his fireflies to broadcast not just to the people he want's to get in touch with, but to the entire forest, that the MacGuffin is right here, and poorly guarded, could you please send reinforcements?
** Not to mention half of the team charged with guarding it not keeping a very close eye on it while they're in the tree, and leaving it to the slugs.



* ThoseTwoBadGuys: The large boggan guard and his incredibly thin cohort.

** 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 wondering 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.
