* {{Foreshadowing}}: ''Zombie Island'' has several signs linking to the end of the mystery, including one in one of the chase sequences, where [[spoiler:a Zombie gives Shaggy a vine to pull Scooby out, at first, it looks like just a gag involving the whole "monster helps them to save themselves", but it foreshadows that the Zombies are not as evil as they're made out to be]].
** Also earlier, [[spoiler: when Fred attempts to pull off what he thinks is a mask off a zombie [[OffWithHisHead and eventually it's not]], he list out possible suspects with Jacques the ferryman being the last he listed out. While Jacques wasn't a man in a mask, he is revealed to be a villain, making Fred AccidentallyAccurate when placing him in the list of suspects, as well as a cat creature]].

* [[SirNotAppearingInThisTrailer Lady Not Appearing on This Cover]]: Poor Daphne got cut off when this movie got packaged together with ''Scooby-Doo and the Alien Invaders,'' and the cover designers had to fit ''both'' posters on the front.



* [[WhatHappenedToTheMouse What Happened to the Cat?]]: A RunningGag throughout the movie is Scooby chasing Simone's cats every time he sees them. The leader of Simone's cats is a [[LightIsNotGood white cat]] that torments Scooby more than the others, but it suddenly disappears from the movie while the others are still constantly seen. [[spoiler:Even during the ending where the cats are shown to have boarded the ship with Scooby and co., leaving the island, the white cat is nowhere to be seen, not even in the post credits scene where Scooby makes peace with the cats. Perhaps it was of the same ilk as its owner? Additionally, the cat god is still around.]]

''Zombie Island'' is also notable for having the first permanent [[TheOtherDarrin shakeup of the franchise's vocal cast]].[[labelnote:±]] Prior to this, the only main character to have been permanently recast since ''Where Are You'' ended in 1970 had been Velma (although ''WesternAnimation/APupNamedScoobyDoo'', being a SpinoffBabies series, necessarily replaced the entire voice cast except for Shaggy and Scooby).[[/labelnote]] Creator/DonMessick, Scooby-Doo's long-time voice, retired in 1996 and died in 1997 shortly before recording could begin the movie is dedicated to his memory; Scooby himself is played by Scott Innes instead. Casey Kasem, who had played Shaggy in every incarnation of the franchise up to this point, declined to reprise his role here after refusing to voice the character in a Burger King commercial (though he would return four years later after he successfully fought for the character to be a vegetarian), so Shaggy is played for the first and only time by Creator/BillyWest[[labelnote:±]] though Billy did voice the BigEater one additional time in a Creator/KidsWB commercial[[/labelnote]]. Daphne and Velma are played here by Creator/MaryKayBergman and Creator/BJWard respectively, replacing original VA's Heather North and Nicole Jaffe (also respectively; both original voices would briefly return four years later). Creator/FrankWelker, reprising his role of Fred, was the only original cast member to return.

* ChekhovsGag: During the "It's Terror Time Again" scene, Shaggy accepts a vine from a zombie to pull Scooby out of some quicksand. It seems like a classic DoubleTake gag. [[spoiler:It's actually foreshadowing that the zombies don't mean any harm.]]

* QuicksandSucks: It's a major hazard on the island.

* VileVillainSaccharineShow: [[spoiler:Lena, Simone, and Jacques are very, ''very'' different to the petty crooks of the classic series. Classical Scooby bad guys were shady but non-homicidal jerks who sought to scare people away, with crimes that always revolved around pure profit. The bad guys of this movie are ''soul stealing murderers'' who drain the life from people and turn them into zombies -- furthermore, they all crossed the MoralEventHorizon; two of them became monsters by accident, but then chose to ''embrace'' their monstrosity because they could be immortal, the third agreed to join them in exchange for immortality. Classical Scooby episodes ended with the villains being caught and sent to prison in humiliation. This movie ends with the villains suffering a horrific FamilyUnfriendlyDeath involving ''decaying into nothing on-screen.'']]
** [[spoiler:In addition to them being more monstrous then past foes, Lena's and Simone's FreudianExcuse reasons behind it were actually [[TragicVillain tragic]] unlike others beforehand; while prior villains just wanted to scare people away out of one dimensional {{Greed}}, their motives were avenging their people that were slaughtered by Morgan Moonscar and his crew, [[MotiveDecay well at first]] [[ImmortalityImmorality until the events of the film.]] Also, while past baddies attempted to scare Mystery Inc. to get them out of the way, the cat creatures attempted to outright murder the gang for their own needs to remain immortal and almost [[HeroKiller killed the franchise's beloved heroes Scooby and Shaggy by trying to drain their life force]].]]

With a warmly-received journey into relatively mature writing (partially helped by being a DolledUpInstallment, see below), ''Zombie Island'' marked a or, in some peoples' opinions, ''the'' high point in the ''Scooby-Doo'' franchise. The film, as mentioned before, is beautifully animated more so than any incarnation before and still unmatched today with a literally dark and realistic feel to it. On top of that, it featured a somewhat cynical/mature look at what happened to Mystery Inc. after their adventures were done, which would be touched on again in TheMovie, but with less success. Characters were more fleshed out and three-dimensional, especially the newly empowered Daphne. The irrelevant pop songs of past cartoons gave way to Alternative and Metal music. The story appealed to older viewers with honest-to-goodness death as part of the backstory, and the end result for the gang if they didn't win.[[note]] [[TrailersAlwaysSpoil Although the back cover mentioned that they ''do'' make it out alive.]][[/note]] And the best part of it all? No contrived story with a guy in a mask... just like the ads promised, [[PunctuatedForEmphasis they were Real. Stinkin'. Zombies]]. Probably the only complaint the movie generated was, "[[AnimationAgeGhetto it's too scary for young]] ''[[AnimationAgeGhetto Scooby]]'' [[AnimationAgeGhetto fans]]." That's the price that comes when you ShooOutTheClowns.
