* TrademarkFavoriteFood: Hermes lures the Snow Monster away from the reindeer by squeaking like a pig, after Cornelius tells him, "I've never seen a Bumble turn down a pork dinner for deer meat." And it works.

* {{Abusive Parent|s}}: Some of the things Rudolph's father says and does are seriously close to the border of emotional abuse. Although [[ValuesDissonance considering the time when the creators were growing up and when the movie was released]], it was probably wasn't intended to come off as abusive and was meant to be a typical father-son relationship. Men being hard on their sons was considered the norm, whether it was fair or not, and could still be considered reasonably well-adjusted. To be fair though, the narrator does state that Donner felt pretty bad about the way he treated Rudolph when Rudolph runs off.

* HumanoidFemaleAnimal: Rudolph's mother in the 1944 short is much more anthropomorphic than the male reindeer (who are already somewhat more anthropomorphic than the Rankin-Bass adaptation). The male reindeer, including Rudolph, are usually quadrupedal, but sometimes walk on two legs when they want to use their hooves as hands; Rudolph's Mother, on the other hand, always walks on two legs, has a much more humanoid body shape (most notably, her [[HumanlikeHandAnatomy arms]] and [[HumanlikeFootAnatomy legs]]), and is the only one who wears clothes.

* AnimatedAdaptation: The Rankin-Bass special, of course. However, many years before the famous stop-motion special, the Jam Handy animation studio made a short subject adaptation of the cartoon (hewing closer to the original story) in [[TheGoldenAgeOfAnimation 1944]], directed by none other than [[Creator/MaxAndDaveFleischer Max Fleischer.]] The song was not written yet during its original run, but a 1948 re-release of it dubbed in the song over the opening.

Added DiffLines:

* RealityIsUnrealistic: The 2001 sequel depicts Rudolph with stumpy antlers only slightly larger than his younger form. This looks like a continuity SnapBack, but reindeers in fact shed their antlers around winter.
