Added DiffLines:

* AirVentPassageway: Feathers [=McGraw=] gets Wallace into the museum through a rooftop ventilation duct that's large enough for Wallace to stand upright inside.


Added DiffLines:

* StartsStealthilyEndsLoudly: Feathers [=McGraw=] successfully sneaks Wallace and the Techno-Trousers into the museum, dodges the laser security system, and grabs the diamond (after two unsuccessful tries and a scare where he almost drops it). Then a loose ceiling panel triggers the security alarm anyway, so Feathers and Wallace have to book it out of the museum, with klaxons blaring.

* HeavySleeper: Invoked and exploited by Feathers [=McGraw=]. When he traps Wallace in the techno-trousers, the first thing he does is force Wallace to walk through the city all day, leaving Wallace completely exhausted afterwards. So exhausted, in fact, that he sleeps like a baby while Feathers pulls off the actual jewel heist. It takes the museum's alarm system to finally wake Wallace up.



* MagicPants: The legs have machinery inside of them, and yet Wallace's legs somehow fit inside them.
** Wallace's offhand comment that they're "ex-NASA", along with the [[WallCrawl suction feet]], subtly imply they were designed to be worn as some kind of EVA equipment.



* PoweredArmor: The Techno Trousers are at the very least half of one.

Added DiffLines:

* TrouserSpace: The techno-trouser legs have machinery inside of them, and yet Wallace's legs somehow fit inside as well.
* WallCrawl: The techno-trousers' suction feet are powerful enough to walk up walls and upside-down on ceilings.

* KickTheDog: A close-to-literal example. When Feathers arrives, he does this to Gromit repeatedly, first by taking over Gromit's room within the first minute of arriving (forcing him into the spare room - which has to be done up to accommodate him), playing loud music to keep him awake and drive him out of the house, then taking over Gromit taking Wallace his slippers and newspaper, which essentially replaces Gromit and causes him to get so fed up and upset he leaves home. This is actually part of Feather's overall plan to steal the diamond, as he needs Gromit out of the way in order to trap Wallace in the Techno-Trousers and prepare for the actual heist.

** Feathers [=McGraw=] is apparently capable of showing up and ''renting rooms'' from humans, but the film still ends with him at the ''zoo''.

** Feathers [=McGraw=] is apparently capable of showing up and ''renting rooms'' from humans, but the film still ends with him at the ''zoo''. Likewise, it is not seen as unusual for the police to be looking for a felonious chicken.

* DeathGlare: Gromit gives a few of these to Feathers. The first is when he growls at him after taking Wallace the paper. The second is when he sees Feathers controlling the Techno-Trousers with Wallace stuck in them. The third is when he braces a rolling pin to try and hit Feathers with it after trapping Wallace in the wardrobe.

* ChaseScene

to:

* ChaseSceneChaseScene: Played with as the movie gets a lot of mileage of a small-scale chase involving the model train as the chase vehicle being split up across the space of a house interior.



** We see a "walk" for Gromit concluding with him sitting on a cart and being pulled by the Techno-Trousers via a leash attached to the collar he received earlier. [[spoiler: Guess how Feathers [=McGraw=] is brought to the police after he's caught]].

* NewspaperThinDisguise
* NiceJobBreakingItHero: [[spoiler: Gromit using the Techno-Trousers to paint the ceiling of the spare room presumably gave Feathers [=McGraw=] the idea to use them in his plan to steal the diamond from the museum.]]

to:

* NewspaperThinDisguise
NewspaperThinDisguise: Gromit spies on Feathers as he cases out the museum by cutting eye holes into a cardboard box. [[spoiler:As chance would have it the suspicious villain notices something is off but ignores it because Gromit's eyes are peeking through the eyes of the cartoon dog drawn on the box.]]

Added DiffLines:

* MurderTheHypotenuse: Or at least pressure him into leaving. Presumably Feathers knew Gromit was too cunning to work his operation around.

Added DiffLines:

* WhamShot: Feathers at first just comes off as [[InnocentlyInsensitive an incredibly thoughtless lodger]] that gets on Gromit's nerves. When Gromit finally leaves however, it cuts to Feathers, watching and rubbing his fins in satisfaction, his villainous plan with the Techno Trousers now revealed.
