* BigGood: PlayedForDrama and Deconstructed with Christopher Robin. As they're all his toys, Pooh and friends think the world of Christopher Robin and look to him for guidance and assistance. When they must go on a quest to save him, they slowly break down as they question their self-worth without Christopher Robin to help them.



* CoversAlwaysLie: The cover for the VHS and DVD don't convey that this is a DarkerAndEdgier film. The back covers, on the other hand, feature artwork that's considerably more solemn (see the page image) and foreboding (the gang of friends looking into the distance), more appropriate to the film's tone.

* DarkerAndEdgier: One of the biggest criticisms of the film was the fact that it was indeed a darker and edgier take on Winnie the Pooh and friends, with some parts verging on downright scary. Furthermore, it was an absolute TearJerker at some parts, even for a Disney film. Even the ''prologue'' is an ominous sign of things to come. We see a butterfly following a peaceful, meandering stream, only for the butterfly to react in shock when it sees the stream [[AStormIsComing flow into a darker, scarier part of the river]].

The atmosphere is a lot heavier than any Pooh story to come before it, there's a lot of Paranoia Fuel, and the biggest threats to the characters turns out to be their own egos and vices. The film also sees the characters respond to what they believe is genuine death in a very mature way. Furthermore, it was it's an absolute TearJerker at some parts, even for a Disney film.

* DeathSeeker: Yes, you read that right. Alarmingly, Tigger is willing to be abandoned to a fate of falling to his death after losing faith in his bouncing abilities. Luckily, his friends' valor in trying to save him brings him back.
* DisneyAcidSequence: Naturally. Owl's song, "Adventure is a Wonderful Thing", in which he sings of the horrors awaiting the gang on their journey with gusto. Later, Rabbit's "If It Says So" has tinges of this, as massive signs begin to pop up everywhere during the song.

* EndOfAnAge: The basis for the entire plot is that Christopher Robin won't be able to spend as much time in the Hundred Acre Wood anymore, since he's started school. He may not even get to see Pooh every day anymore either.

* FlatWhat: When Owl dramatically announces that Christopher Robin has gone to Skull, Pooh has a very flat, unimpressed "Skull??" for him.
* FleetingDemographicRule: The storyline is reused in the 2011 movie Disney/WinnieThePooh. Once again, Owl misreads a note Christopher Roblin left while he's at school, and assumes he's been kidnapped by a fantastical monster. This time it's mistaking "be back soon" for "The Backson." He even sings ''another'' acid trip song about it as he sends the others on their journey.
* {{Foreshadowing}}: Surprisingly, for a Direct-to-Video Movie, there is a small amount of it. The most obvious examples can be found in FatalFlaw above, but a more subtle one can be found while the troupe are traveling through [[NamesToRunAwayFromReallyFast Skull]]: at one point, they encounter a giant wall of crystals that distorts Pooh's image so much that they mistake it for the [[BigBad Skullosaurus]], hinting at the monster's true nature ([[spoiler:its [[HellIsThatNoise hellish]] call is actually Pooh's stomach growling]]) and that everything isn't quite as it seems.

* HeroicBSOD: See FatalFlaw above. This trope is evoked when they realize they simply don't have what it takes. [[spoiler: For the time being]].

* TheLeader: Pooh is initially this, as he is the one who first brings the team together. However, being a bear of very little brain, Rabbit takes over after he gets them nowhere during the first Skullosaurus "attack". Eventually Rabbit gives up his title after making a ton of bad choices and getting them lost. Then Pooh briefly starts making the decisions, and Rabbit finally becomes an accomplished leader when trying to get to the Eye of Skull. It seems that while Pooh has some leadership abilities, Rabbit when on top of his game is the best one to lead the group.

* MetaGuy: Owl knows all about the various perils of an epic fantasy quest, and thus is the one who sends the gang out on their journey.

* OutOfFocus: Eeyore does not have a character arc like the other four members of the group, and doesn't contribute much, but there's no way someone as popular as he is wouldn't be in the movie. He does provide some of the film's funniest moments regardless.

* SeriesFauxnale: The movie could easily serve as the true end to Disney's Winnie the Pooh fiction. It tackles the ramifications of the ending of the original books head on, having Pooh and Christopher Robin make peace with the fact that they'll always be together, and the cast overcoming their major flaws they're always portrayed with. While of course the franchise continued, this film could easily serve as the endgame of the stories of the Hundred Acre Wood.
* SoundtrackDissonance: Even with the film's darker, more mature tone and scope, the credits version of "Wherever You Are" wouldn't sound out of place at the end of a dramatic like fellow 90's film ''Film/{{Ghost}}''.

* TooGoodToBeTrue: As said in his song, Pooh honestly believed that no matter what, Christopher Robin would always be by his side and that they would always play together [[ArcWords "forever and ever"]]. When this is found not to be the case however, Pooh utters this trope in a song, sounding heartbroken on top of that. Indeed, this realization is quite a [[[BreakTheCutie devastating blow to the stuffed bear]].

* AbsenteeActor: Kanga, Roo, and Gopher are absent from this film; the latter's exclusion is more jarring considering his major role as the SixthRanger in ''The New Adventures of Winnie-the-Pooh''.


Added DiffLines:

* CharacterDevelopment: Most of the characters go through some sort of development by the end of the film.
** Rabbit learns that his own brain and ingenuity is what makes him the smart one of the gang, and that he doesn't have to rely on the written word - and that in the darkest times, he really is the best leader for the gang.
** Tigger learns how truly strong he is, not just in physical terms, but in personal terms when he decides he will try the impossible if only to save his friends.
** Piglet learns to overcome his fears, much like Tigger, to help his friends.
** Pooh and the entire gang overcome their dependence on Christopher Robin. Pooh in particular accepts that he may not be able to see the most important person in his life every day anymore, but that they'll always love and be with each other in their hearts - "forever and ever".
