* AbusiveParents: The Once-ler's mother. First, she derails his dreams, which hurt him for a long time. Then she pressured him into breaking his promise for the Lorax. Finally, when his business ultimately fails, she throws him away like garbage.

* AdaptationalAttractiveness: The Once-Ler's face was never revealed in the books, but he's most likely not human (given his spindly green arms, and the fact that most of Dr. Seuss's characters are weird creatures). In the movie, he's an adorable young man with lots of fangirls.

* FlatCharacter: O'Hare. There's a reason he's been compared to a ''Captain Planet'' villain. Though this ''does'' give us a [[CrowningMomentOfFunny rather funny moment]] in the final musical number where he seems about ready to [[HeelFaceTurn change his ways]]... then says "Naaah! Just kidding!", remaining a FlatCharacter to the end.

Added DiffLines:

* SlowlySlippingIntoEvil: The entire theme of the [[VillainSong How Bad Can I Be?]] song. Over the course of the song, the Onceler makes more and more compromises to his morals until by the end he no longer has any qualms about destroying the environment and driving his former friends out of their homes.

* GenreSavvy: A minor example with Ted, who introduces himself to the Once-ler as "the guy who still cares".

* AvoidTheDreadedGRating: O'Hare drops a "damn it" to express his frustration during the climax. Given how out-of-tone it is with the rest of the movie and that just an annoyed look would have sufficed there, it seem quite obvious why they put it in.

Added DiffLines:

* MrFanservice: The Once-ler, of the pretty boy variation. He did a lot off shaking his butt and hips, bending over, and allowing his legs to be open at the audience. He once crawled across a table, as well as stripped down partially on screen.
