* 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: 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.

* FlintstoneTheming: Gromit's canine-themed library includes, in this film, a book by the famous philosopher [[{{Creator/Plato}} Pluto]].

* ManlyTears: Gromit sheds these during his first night in Feathers's presence. Feathers forces him out of the house by playing loud organ music to keep him awake and displace him. After presumably hours of being kept awake (which somehow doesn't affect Wallace), Gromit is in his kennel with earmuffs on, thinking Feathers is upstairs in his (Gromit's) bedroom, but then he sees Feathers enter the back yard and go into the house, and moments later, the music stops. Gromit promptly breaks down in tears. [[Tearjerker One almost can't help but wonder if he cried himself to sleep...]]

** Gromit's eyes are also wet with tears as he prepares to leave home, after seeing the photo of himself with Wallace.

* BewareTheQuietOnes: Feathers [=McGraw=]. He may be silent and seem pleasant (to Wallace at least), but he's a real jerk to Gromit and also a wanted thief who won't hesitate to use you as a prop in his crimes or to pull a gun on you.



* BrickJoke: The system that gets Wallace out of bed and serves him toast at the beginning comes back later when Feathers gets a sleeping Wallace out of bed, with Gromit hiding in it. Gromit ends up getting dressed in Wallace's clothes and a spoonful of jam gets launched at him, but because this time there's no bread in the toaster to intercept the jam, it hits him in the face.



* ButtMonkey: Gromit falls into this hard. His birthday presents are things that benefit Wallace more than him, he gets evicted from his own bedroom by Feathers, then Feathers forces him out of the house and causes him to leave home out of resentment. He doesn't even manage to stop Feathers's plan from going ahead, as by the time he finds out about it, Feathers is already putting it into operation. Things only go his way at the end when he traps Feathers in a bottle and Wallace decides lodgers are more trouble than they're worth.



* TheDogBitesBack: Subverted. After Feathers locks Wallace in the wardrobe, he bumps into Gromit, who has a DeathGlare on his face and is wielding a rolling pin, about to whack Feathers with it. Feathers simply pulls a gun on Gromit and locks him in the wardrobe too.



* FeatheredFiend: Feathers [=McGraw=]

to:

* FeatheredFiend: Feathers [=McGraw=][=McGraw=].



** When Gromit is upside-down in the Techno Trousers painting the ceiling of the spare room, Feathers comes in and looks rather intently at him. Wallace is later upside-down in the Techno Trousers when Feathers uses him to steal the diamond from the museum.



* {{Jerkass}}: Feathers [=McGraw=]. His EstablishingCharacterMoment features a big KickTheDog moment to Gromit by forcing him out of his own bedroom and then out of the house, reducing Gromit to tears and resentment and after only two nights in Feathers's presence, Gromit is so depressed, he leaves home. The worst part? Wallace doesn't even notice any of this. He only realises Feathers's true colours when he sees Feathers is the thief who stole the diamond from the museum.



* NoMouth: Gromit. Feathers [=McGraw=] counts as well - he has a beak, but it never opens, even when he squawks.

** In the original version, the creepy ''Open University'' fanfare [[note]] A British correspondence/home learning university that used to have classes/courses broadcast on BBC1 and 2 in the 70s, 80s and 90s; they've since dropped [[http://www.open.ac.uk/ in favour of using the internet]]. [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5w6fodbcTfk/ The fanfare itself]] was, ironically replaced by a [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mp37awSLwTA/ newer animation and fanfare]] by the time the short was released in 1993. [[/note]] can be heard when Gromit watches TV. In the re-release, it's simply something generic.
