%%* DangerouslyGenreSavvy: Nigel demonstrates this ability upon capturing Jewel on the float:
-->'''Jewel:''' You'll never find [Blu]! He's already gone.\\
'''Nigel:''' I don't need to find him. He'll find you.
%%** It does seem to desert him at the end [[spoiler:when he leaves Blu alone in his cage, despite knowing he's smart enough to open latches and pick locks.]]

* AlternateAnimalAffection: Surprisingly [[SubvertedTrope subverted]]. You'd think that with all the [[ShownTheirWork little animal behaviors they did right]] in the movie, they would've replaced kissing with something more realistic, like a nuzzle.

You'd think that {{Averted}} with all the [[ShownTheirWork little animal behaviors they did right]] in the movie, they would've replaced parrots kissing with something more realistic, each other on their beaks a lot like a nuzzle.humans. This is actually TruthInTelevision: parrots often gently bite each others' beaks, similarly to kissing.

Added DiffLines:

* BellyScrapingFlight: Linda and Tulio drive a Carnivale float onto the runway where the bird smugglers' plane is taking off. The plane gets into the air just in time, but its fuselage still destroys the upper part of the float. Later, Blu and an injured Jewel fall out of the plane over the bay, and Blu manages to get his wings out just in time to pull up skimming Jewel's back across the water before they hit the surface.

Added DiffLines:

* AutoTune: Faintly audible on Rafael's one line in the "Real in Rio" finale, indicating it was used for its original purpose--correcting pitch. Evidently, George Lopez can't carry a tune.

** Linda is unable to visit home on the grounds that she'd have no one to take care of Blu, and the general impression we're left with is that her life completely and utterly revolves around him.

* FeatherFingers: Played straight with general wing gestures and Nico's use of his bottle-cap hat, although Blu, Jewel, and Nigel rely primarily on their feet when they actually need to manipulate objects.

* FeatherFingers: Played straight with general wing gestures and Nico's use of his bottle-cap hat, although Blu, Jewel, and Nigel rely primarily on their feet when they actually need to manipulate objects. Subtle hand gestures such as pointing are also subbed in with the birds' feet -- Blu's first meeting with Jewel is a prime example of this.

** Nico throws his bottle cap as if it was a [[CaptainAmerica mighty shield]]. It even comes back to his [[FeatherFingers wingtip]] after stunning a monkey.

Added DiffLines:

* CallOfTheWildBlueYonder: Pretty much the main plot. Blu is a macaw who has spent his whole life as a pet never learning to fly. When he gets stranded in Rio, he tries to learn how, and eventually does [[spoiler:in order to save his true love from falling to her death.]]

* ChekhovsSkill: As a '[[InsistentTerminology companion]]', Blu picked up an assortment of skills such as exceptional climbing (to get around his flightlessness), the ability to open latches, and imitation of a dog's bark. These skills come in handy later on.
