* BondVillainStupidity: It takes Burgermeister Meisterburger no less than ''[[RuleOfThree three]]'' failed attempts to stop Kris Kringle's toy delivery service (Kris's tactics to overcome them each resulting in a new Christmas custom), to realize that the only way to do so is by striking at its heart. His own soldiers are just as dumb, overlooking the stockings when searching the houses as well as Winter's magic corn when arresting him and the Kringles.

* IllGirl: One of these was what led to Kris discovering that he could use chimneys to enter locked houses. "Susie, a tiny little girl who was very, very sick, had asked Kris for a toy Noah's ark. Kris just couldn't disappoint her." It's left ambiguous just what the extent of her illness is; "very, very sick" could very well be a stand-in for "dying".
* ImportantHaircut: Kris's beard.

* KarmaHoudini:
** Subverted with the Burgermeister. Despite all the misery and unhappiness he causes everyone, he just quietly dies offscreen, apparently from natural causes. As S.D. Kluger obliquely puts it, he and his family just "sort of died off, and fell out of power", as represented by his portrait falling off his wall, to be replaced by one of Kris as Santa Claus. Grimsley apparently doesn't get any comeuppance either, although his notable absence from the Burgermeister's side following Kris' escape could suggest he lost his job over it.
** To the bad guys, Jessica is sort of this. When Grimsley comes to arrest the Kringles, he also arrests the Warlock, even though the Warlock had nothing to do with making toys. Jessica, on the other hand, was there to warn the Kringles about the impending trap, but is not taken into custody. The only punishment she seems to suffer is, as she puts it later, "My own town, turned against me!" which may suggest she's been fired as schoolteacher.

* JerkWithAHeartOfJerk: The Burgermeister. As he attempted to have Kris arrested for giving out toys, the latter tries to change his mind by giving him a yo-yo. At first, the Buergemeister enjoys it, but after being remind by Grimsley that he's breaking his own law, he angrily dispatches the yo-yo and orders his soldiers to arrest Kris, who is forced to escape.

Kluger obliquely puts it, he and his family just "sort of died off, and fell out of power", as represented by his portrait falling off his wall, to be replaced by one of Kris as Santa Claus.

Added DiffLines:

* ModestRoyalty: Tanta Kringle is called "the elf queen" in passing, but aside from being the matriarch of the Kringle family she doesn't seem particularly royal.

* WouldHurtAchild: Burgermeister Meisterburger has no qualms about imprisoning children if it suits him. And he takes far too much glee in taking their toys away and forcing them to watch him ''burn them'' in a bonfire.

* TheyCallMeMrTibbs: [[LampshadeHanging Lampshaded]] by the Winter Warlock, when Kris Kringle first meets him, before his HeelFaceTurn:
-->'''Kris Kringle''': I have something for you.\\
'''Winter Warlock''': What is this? A trick?\\
'''Kris Kringle''': Oh, no sir, Mr. Warlock. Or, may I call you Winter?\\
'''Winter Warlock''': ''Mister'' Warlock, if you please!
** Afterwards, [[DefrostingIceKing he's polite enough to have Kris and Jessica just call him Winter.]]

* NoSenseOfHumor: Burgermeister's villainous actions start when he breaks his funnybone, but he clearly had no use for it before either.

* RedemptionRejection: Burgermeister is a rare case of a Christmas villain who never truly reforms, but he almost does. After Chris gives him a gift (the method he uses to befriend both the Warlock and Jessica) he's actually happy for a few brief minutes. However, Grimsley reminds him he's breaking his own law, embarrassing him in public, so he reverts to his old attitude quickly.
