Added DiffLines:

* DiceRollDeath: A literal example. Oogie Boogie has Sally and Santa Claus tied up and lying on a tilting platform before a fiendish deathtrap. Oogie rolls a pair of dice to determine how much he will tilt the platform to send his victims to their doom. The dice come up "snake eyes," which wouldn't tilt the platform enough to be deadly. Oogie then invokes this by pounding the table to jiggle the dice to a new number, eleven. With wicked delight, Oogie Boogie begins cranking... and then the trope is subverted since Sally and Santa are rescued.

** To TheGrinch. The two play out similarly up to the fight with Oogie, but Jack had only good intentions and got the Grinch equivalent of a sad ending, in spite of being a better person than the Grinch.

* ScaryStitches:
** Sally is a rag doll covered in these, and can undo them to allow her limbs to operate on their own.
** Jack's smile has been mistaken for these on a DVD cover.
** Oogie Boogie's seams and mouth feature prominent stitching.

The series would later gain a sequel in video game form on the {{PlayStation 2}} titled ''VideoGame/TheNightmareBeforeChristmasOogiesRevenge'' and a prequel, ''The Pumpkin King'' on the GameBoyAdvance. HalloweenTown and Jack also appear in almost every game in the ''Franchise/KingdomHearts'' series. Disneyland has added movie-themed attractions in the Haunted Mansion, known as the Haunted Mansion Holiday, just in time for Halloween in the past years.

* CreepyChild: Lock, Shock, and Barrel, being between the apparent ages of 4 and 6, are the youngest residents of Halloween Town seen in the film. They're also some of the creepiest, and some of the few who are actually malicious (although this may be because of Oogie Boogie's influence).

* EfficientDisplacement: Jack falls into the Christmas Town snow, leaving behind a perfect outline. His rail-thin stature justifies it.



* MinionShipping: Lock and Shock.
** Very {{Squick}}y for those who believe Lock, Shock and Barrel are [[BrotherSisterIncest siblings]].
** [[FromBadToWorse Could be worse]]: Some people like to ship [[{{Lolicon}} Jack/Shock]]. She's usually aged up, [[{{Squick}} but still...]]
*** Worse still, the same people who put Jack and Shock together usually PairTheSpares and end up pairing [[{{Shotacon}} Sally with Barrel (or sometimes Lock, but it's usually Barrel)]]. Also usually aged up, but still doesn't seem right when you consider that Sally hardly interacted with Boogie's Boys.
**** Still better than Sally/Oogie, one supposes.
