* DoesThisRemindYouOfAnything: Francis and [[spoiler:Claudandus]]'s final battle is very similar to Simba and Scar's battle from ''Disney/TheLionKing'', except bloodier. Both films came out in the same year, to boot! Though the similarities are most likely unintentional, as the film of ''Felidae'' lifted that scene from the book, which came out years before either film.

* WhatHappenedToTheMouse: In the movie, we never get to see what happens to any of the side characters (it's ''possible'' that Francis's "new friend" is Nhozemptekh, but the character design is slightly different so this is unlikely). The novel subverts this by giving information in the epilogue.
