** Collette is the underappreciated kind. When saddle with teaching NaiveNewcomer Linguini, she warns him that being a restaurant cook is not like "playing in the kitchen with mommy"; she does eventually soften as they get to know each other. She also points out that [[TheSmurfettePrinciple she's the only woman in the kitchen staff]], and thus has to be extra tough to make it in a traditionally male dominated industry.
** Skinner, the current head chef at Gusteau's, is the artiste kind. He is arrogant and ill-tempered, ruling the kitchen with an iron fist. When he catches Linguini adding ingredients to a soup, he threatens to ''draw and quarter'' him.

** It's implied that Gusteau was one, given that his motto is "Anyone can cook" and his entire staff is full of colorful characters united by their ability to cook.

** A small one happens when Linguini and Remy pass the soup test. Colette show them that simply being able to make delicious food is only one aspect of being a cook; you not only have to be good at cooking, but also good at organization, timing and efficiency due to each dish having different cooking times (and must all arrive piping hot at the same time), the massive amounts of orders they have during service, to keep hazards in the kitchen (which is filled with hot fluids, hot surfaces and sharp objects) to a minimum. Remy can be briefly seen trembling, clearly having thought that his nose was all he needed.

** Remy also shouldn't have been taste-testing many of the dishes he prepared, as onions or scallions are used in most, and are toxic to rats and many other animals. Even chopping such vegetables or sniffing them to assess quality could've exposed the "little chef" enough to cause terminal anemia.

** The ratatouille variant that Rémy prepares for Ego at the end was invented for the film; Chef Keller was asked what he would do if a critic like Ego were to suddenly enter his restaurant and, in a moment of inspiration, created the dish.

* ZeroPercentApprovalRating: Although the staff respects Skinner, they don't necessarily love him. [[spoiler:When Linguini earns his inheritance and fires Skinner for withholding it from him, the staff happily burns the frozen food displays and Horst keeps Skinner away with his thumb]].

* TheMockbuster: Video Brinquedo attempted to cash in on the success of this film with ''Animation/{{Ratatoing}}'', a movie with a plot that was completely different [[ClicheStorm (although infinitely]] more idiotic), but with a setting identical enough to be considered copyright infringement. Except instead of Paris it was, for CreatorProvincialism reasons, Rio de Janeiro.



* AnOfferYouCantRefuse: When Skinner finds out Remy does all the cooking Linguini takes credit for, he captures Remy and offers a deal: Remy develops a new line of frozen foods for Skinner and Skinner doesn't kill him.

* ReedRichardsIsUseless: Linguini discovers an unusually intelligent rat who not only knows how to cook delicious gourmet food, but even ''washes his hands'' before doing so. Instead of alerting scientists to this incredible find and possibly becoming famous for it, he just keeps it secret and lets it make food for him. One would think there'd be a sizeable niche market in "come see a rat cook haute cuisine!"
** The film notably explores this, actually, as mentioned in the RealityEnsues entry above. While Rémy's abilities are certainly amazing, the fact that he's a rat means that anyone who's aware of how things actually run in the restaurant immediately turns against him, as both the kitchen staff and the health inspector do. Interestingly this forms the basis of the plot, as Rémy would love nothing more than to cook for people, but everyone is hostile to him doing so because of his being...you know...a rat.
