** A deliberate one to RudolphTheRedNosedReindeer, when Zero turns his nose red and moves to the head of the sleigh team to guide them through the fog.

* WatchingAVideoGame: Jack's fight against Oogie has elements of this, particularly the way he makes his way through a series of deathtraps while Oogie slowly backs away, activating them one at a time like a GetBackHereBoss. Then it's subverted when Jack basically says "screw this" and [[CuttingTheKnot climbs ''over'' of the obstacles instead of trying to go through them.]]



* WeirdMoon/[[WeirdSun Sun]]: The moon is pretty big and doesn't have any craters, while the sun has the face of a jack-o-lantern.

* GratuitousLaboratoryFlasks: Dr. Finklestein has some of this kind of stuff in his MadScientistLaboratory, most notably a big, globe-shaped flask with a severed hand floating in it. He never uses any of it, but he ''does'' loan it to Jack Skellington along with a microscope to use for his Christmas experiments.

* ArtEvolution: As the majority of the characters in the film are derived from filler monsters in the original poem's illustrations, this happened for them- it's possible to pick them up in the Burton artwork, but they look more sophisticated in final form.



* AscendedExtra: Almost all of the secondary characters in the film are derived from the background characters in the original poem's illustrations, including Sally, Finklestein, Lock, Shock, Barrel, the Mayor, and Oogie Boogie. Almost all of the other residents of Halloween Town are also taken from the original drawings.

* MyHeroZeroMyHeroZero: Jack's ghostly dog, who serves as his Rudolph with his jack-o'-lantern nose.



* NoodlePeople

* NoodlePeopleNoodlePeople: Per Burton's style, most of the characters are very skinny. This is averted by Sally, Santa, and Oogie, and taken UpToEleven with Jack.

* TheAntiGrinch: Jack Skellington (and by extension, the rest of Halloween Town).

to:

* TheAntiGrinch: Jack Skellington (and by extension, the rest of Halloween Town).Town) loves Christmas ''so'' much that he tries taking over for the year, only to terrify the ignorant masses with his gifts mail-order from HalloweenTown. It gets so bad the human authorities try ([[spoiler:and succeed]]) to shoot him out of the sky, literally knocking Jack to his senses.

* ShoutOut: Oogie and Santa echo a line from the WesternAnimation/BettyBoop cartoon "WesternAnimation/TheOldManOfTheMountain", which stars Music/CabCalloway, the inspiration for Oogie Boogie. Oogie's gyrating dance bears a strong resemblance to that of the Walrus rotoscoped over Calloway in the Betty cartoon "Minne the Moocher."

** Another example is when Jack has a kidnapped Santa in front of him. Jack thinks he's made HalloweenTown merry and is recreating Christmas in his own way, so Santa should take a vacation to relax. Santa has been kidnapped and suddenly brought out of a sack to see a skeleton and town full of monsters saying they're taking over his holiday and that he's going on vacation in a less innocent way. Seeing Jack prepare makes us sympathetic to his view, but the results make Santa's interpretation more accurate.

** The black cat Sally sings to could very well be the same from ''WesternAnimation/{{Coraline}}'' given how closely they resemble each other and the cat's ability to walk in and out of other worlds.
