** Besides those two, we have [[strike:Jiminy Cricket]] Gee Willikers, a small insect named after an interjection who tries to keep Pinocchio on the straight and narrow, and a [[TheyJustDidntCare painfully obvious]] expy of Lampwick in the [[strike:Pleasure Island]] Neon Cabaret scene. And like Monstro, the Emperor's ship swallows their boat whole and provides the backdrop for Pinocchio's final battle.

* MalignantPlotTumor: Gee Willikers and Lieutenant Bumblebee enlist the aid of bugs everywhere by visiting "BugsBerg" and fight off... a frog. The side-story has little consequence, ''consumes a lot of time'', and nearly derails the plot of the entire movie!

* HiddenDepths: From Scalawag and Igor no less, who give a BalanceBetweenGoodAndEvil explanation to Pinocchio, about the Emperor's and Blue Fairy's diametrically opposed motives and goals concerning free-will.

* MoodWhiplash: It happens ''several times'' in this film - a charming moment plays out with a up-beat song, only to be followed by a scene of [[{{NightmareFuel}} Nightmare Fuel]].

* JumpScare: The Emperor gives a particularly ''nasty'' one to the younger viewer, when his fingers transform into ''screeching demons'', emphasizing that his empire can suddenly switch without warning from a dream, to a nightmare.

* PuppetPermutation: What Puppetino dishes out to Pinocchio (and before him, Twinkle and countless others), and what [[BadBoss the Emperor of the Night]] [[LaserGuidedKarma in turn]] [[YouHaveFailedMe does to him]].

* CreepyChild: The kid in the Cowboy hat that encourages Pinocchio to drink alchohol. [[spoiler:he turns out to be the Emperor in disguise.]]



* TheDragon: Puppetino, it turns out. While very effective at first, particularly in using temptation to get Pinocchio to make his DealWithTheDevil, by the end he proves to be next to useless, cowering like a random {{Mook}}, and when the shit hits the fan is a DirtyCoward. Even his powers seem to be a gift from the Emperor, if his ultimate fate also implies a stripping of those powers, thus rendering even his earlier crowning moments rather lackluster in retrospect. His fear of his boss, however, was likely due to fear of YouHaveOutlivedYourUsefulness or YouHaveFailedMe ([[ProperlyParanoid and he was right to worry]]).

* BigGood: The Blue Fairy, naturally.

* [[ThisIsSomethingHesGotToDoHimself This Is Something He's Got To Do Himself]]: Pinocchio's determination to get the [[MacGuffin jewel box]] back and thus prove his responsibility and trustworthiness, whatever the cost. He means well, but it does come across as a bit of LawfulStupid behavior.

* WholesomeCrossdresser: Scalawag and Igor, [[WeNeedADistraction as a distraction]] to snap Pinocchio out of his fame-and-fortune illusion. ''Definitely'' not an AttractiveBentGender moment.

** A more subtle form, but listen very closely to the song "Do What Makes You Happy", which sings about the joys or abandoning home to pursue the life of a rule-snubbing vagabond. How many kids and teenagers have ran away from loving homes just for a taste of freedom? And how many have later come to regret it?
