* MisplacedWildlife: Pangur Ban is recognizably a Turkish Angora-- telltale signs are the pure white coat, fluffy tail, and especially the mismatched eyes, as well as intelligence, friendliness, and protectiveness of her human companions-- which were not introduced to Europe until the Crusades, at least four hundred years after the completion of the Book of Kells.

** Crom Cruach's lair has a slightly different art style to emphasize it's otherworldly nature, being all angular lines and glowing green on black. In fact, this appears to be a bit of an in-universe thing as Brendan is somehow able to utilize its ''two dimenionality'' to his advantage by trapping Crom Cruach in a chalk circle.

** Subverted with the Book's purported ability to blind the sinners who read it. The buildup right before [[spoiler: the greedy viking opens it]] really leads you to believe a miracle will happen at any moment and divine light will blind him. [[spoiler: This makes it all the more shocking when he does just fine and tears it all to pieces.]]

* AdultFear: The third act. Because the young protagonist Brendan has once disobeyed his uncle's (the abbot of Kells) strict curfews, he locks him and Aidan in the scriptorium, both out of anger and to keep them out of reach of [[spoiler:the invading northmen]]. In the ensuing [[spoiler:slaughter]], the abbot has a very sudden and positive character change when he is horrified to see all his schemes and preventive measures against [[spoiler:an invasion going up in smoke. He himself is wounded repeatedly and badly, and passes out. The scriptorium is set on fire. Unbeknownst to him, Brendan and Aidan managed to escape beforehand. They, in return, see the abbot lying in the snow and think he's dead]]. Now, Brendan believes the abbot, the only parent and relative he had ever known,[[spoiler: is dead, ]]while the abbot thinks that Brendan, his only surviving relative whose own life he risked to save him as a baby, [[spoiler:has burned to death because ''he himself had locked him there in the first place''. The movie ends very much with a very dark BitterSweetEnding as this misunderstanding is cleared up ''decades'' later. But still, the fears of an adult authority to fail in really ''really'' trying to protect his community and his nephew's life are fully and conveniently exploited in this film]].

** Crom Cruach does exist in Irish mythology, where's he described as a Pagan god who's worship included human sacrifices and he was banished by St. Patrick. He has nothing to do with Colm Cille.
