** Cy's voice sounds ''very'' young, soft, and high-pitched for a moustachioed, middle-aged delivery man.

* BlatantLies: Once-ler tells one after chopping down a tree:
-->'''Lorax:''' Did you chop down this tree?
-->'''Once-ler:''' [[LookBehindYou *gasp* What's that?!]]
-->''*As the Lorax turns to look, Once-ler quickly drops the axe handle on a Barbaloot, who is clearly too small to lift it.*''
-->'''Once-ler:''' I think he did it.

--->'''O'Hare:''' My name's O'Hare, I'm one of you! I live in Thneedville too. The things you say just might be true. It might be time to start anew. (''beat'') Nah, I say let it die! Let it die! Let it shrivel up -- who's with me?\\

** Unfortunatly, the more accurate version would be "unless someone with power cares a whole awful lot, nothing is ever going to get better. It's not"

* AllThereInTheScript: The bar-ba-loots (brown forest critters), except for one easily missed line, are not named in the film, although they are mentioned in the soundtrack album version of "This is the Place" and on DVD special features. They are named in the book, however, along with the Swomee Swans and Humming Fish.

** It's never made clear if the man with the Once-Ler is his Father or Uncle. However, since the Once-Ler is supposed to be like Ted (in a sense), it might be his Uncle, so both Ted and the Once-Ler would have missing Fathers.

* 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.

* 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".
