Boo's ability to say "Mike Wazowski".Wazowski".
** It's noted throughout the film (and through it's prequel) that most of the monsters aren't naturally scary and when caught off guard can even evoke joy or laughter from the children they victimise. This ends up becoming ''very'' pivotal during the end.

* SpannerInTheWorks: Mike manages to get the ball rolling on uncovering [[spoiler: Waternoose's]] conspiracy by ''forgetting his paperwork''. Because he forgot and had a date that night, he sent Sulley in his place, meaning that Sulley was in the right place to discover Boo's door, which leads to her entering Monstropolis.

Added DiffLines:

* TerminallyDependentSociety: Implied throughout the movie. A major background problem is that kids are harder to scare these days, which is leading to a scream shortage in monster-world where the energy given from screams powers pretty much everything. This is fixed at the end of the movie where [[spoiler:making kids laugh]] becomes the new source of energy.

** Might count as a subversion as ''immediately'' after this, Celia sees Boo, then the pursuing Randall, and realizes Mike ''is'' telling the truth.

* MoodWhiplash: When Sulley is fighting Randall it is funny since Randall is invisible. But when Randall starts to [[NightMareFuel strangle]] Sulley the mood gets a bit serious.
* MotiveMisidentification: Mike thinks Randall's behavior and motivations is all about breaking the scare record up until he flat out tells him it's not.

** Just barely subverted in the ending: [[spoiler:Although Sulley and Mike ultimately manage to get Boo back into her bedroom, and expose his boss, their actions also caused the company to nearly be shut down, and almost cause Monstropolis to be in a permanent blackout as a consequence. The only reason it didn't turn out that way was because it was discovered that the children's laughter had 10x the power input of scream. In addition, the Scarers seem well-adjusted to the Laughter switch]]

* AllInTheManual: Boo's full name. It's [[TheDanza Mary Gibbs]]. Her first name is revealed in the film, since she signs all her sketches, but it's hard to spot.
