* BigWHAT?: Mike to Sulley in the door vault after doing a flip and landing [[GroinAttack on his crotch on a girder]], and Sulley noticing too late that Boo's costume covered her face so she didn't see the flip, so he hurt himself for nothing.

Added DiffLines:

* BlueIsHeroic: Sulley is mostly blue with purple spots, and is the main protagonist.


Added DiffLines:

* FirstNameBasis: Waternoose is the only character to refer to Sulley by his first name, James. Randall does it once while talking to Mike, and he himself is referred to only by his first name, and we only find out his surname of Boggs from Celia.


Added DiffLines:

* HandshakeRefusal: Before the scarers start working on the first day, Sulley turns to Randall at the next station, holds out his hand and says, "Hey, may the best monster win,", expecting a handshake. Randall refuses to give one and simply says, "I plan to."


Added DiffLines:

* KickTheSonOfABitch: Waternoose's line towards Randall of, "Sullivan was ''twice'' the scarer you will ''ever'' be!" is this. Randall gives him a DeathGlare and a growl for it.


Added DiffLines:

* LastNameBasis: Sulley is usually referred to as Sulley or Sullivan. Mostly Randall calls him the latter. The only person to really refer to Sulley by his first name, James, is Waternoose. Mike is also referred to by his surname of Wazowski by Roz and Randall.


Added DiffLines:

* MysteriousMiddleInitial: It's not revealed what Sulley's middle initial of P stands for.


Added DiffLines:

* SecondPlaceIsForLosers: Randall certainly seems to think so, and is second-place scarer to Sulley for a while.
