* AllAnimalsAreDogs: During the segment showing Spirit as a colt, he's shown lapping water up with his tongue like a dog. Unlike dogs, horses have thick tongues which are not as capable of scooping up water; while they may sometimes be seen licking at water (for instance, shallow water in the bottom of a bucket), horses most often dip their muzzles partly into the water to drink.



** During his segment as a colt, Spirit at one point drinks water like a dog would. This might have been added for cuteness effect.

* BookEnds: The movie begins with a shot of a beautiful blue sky filled with clouds (including one shaped remarkably like a galloping horse) before panning down across the landscape and eventually coming to Spirit's racing herd. It ends, after he returns home to lead the herd, with a [[PanUpToTheSkyEnding pan back up to that same sky and cloud]].


Added DiffLines:

* PanUpToTheSkyEnding: After Spirit is reunited with his herd, complete with a cloud shaped like a galloping horse. See also BookEnds above.

* ActionGirl: Rain, in as much as a horse can be. She does ride into battle with Little Creek, after all.



* CallBack: When Spirit first wakes up with the Lakota, Little Creek leaves him a pile of apples. [[spoiler:When he first wakes up after being saved by Little Creek at the end of the movie, the first thing he sees is a pile of apples.]]



* ComesGreatResponsibility: Spirit drops the trope word-for-word at the beginning; he's leader of the herd, and that's awesome, but it also means having to look out for everyone, which he does to the utmost of his ability.



* FriendToChildren: Spirit, both horse and human. The only human he's completely gentle to is a little toddler girl who he lets pet him.
* TheGadfly: Rain is notably pretty cheeky and playful, both with Little Creek and with Spirit.



* ShownTheirWork: Like the animators themselves point out; horses are one of the most difficult things to draw, and not only did they have to draw horses all day long for a few years, they had to ''animate'' them as well. The result is nothing short of stunning.
