* TimePassesMontage: Several, some more subtle than others. WALL•E's initial courtship with EVE, EVE's hibernation upon finding the plant, WALL•E's trip through space, and the credit sequence. Interestingly, none of these montages provide ''any'' cues as to how much time is passing. They could take place over anything from a number of days, to many years or even centuries. Because the robots are functionally immortal, there's just no way to tell.\\\
Although the plant that EVE is carrying doesn't grow at all, and between her picking it up and arriving on the ''Axiom'' it is only just starting to dehydrate. In real life that'd take less than a week, but the film implies that several seasons have passed just waiting for EVE's dropship to return... probably a built-in stasis field.\\\
Since the cockroach lives through the events of the movie, the maximum possible length of the story as viewed from an Earthly perspective cannot exceed that of the cockroach's adult lifespan, which is not much more than 400 days assuming it's an American Cockroach. The space sequences, such as the transit montage, are considerably more difficult to measure given the relative flow of time and could possibly extend well beyond that limit if the ''Axiom'' was at a great enough distance.

* TheGardener: WALL•E becomes a Mundane Gardener when he decides to take care of a plant he finds while doing his job.[[spoiler: This decision eventually leads to ''humanity returning to earth'', and a good chunk of them becoming Mundane Gardeners as well.]]

** [[spoiler:The plant, the tape, the parts replacement/cannibalization, the lighter, the fire extinguisher, heck, even the lawn gnomes, somewhat.]] Andrew Stanton even talks about the concept of this trope, without naming it, during the DVDCommentary.

** North, the ''direction'', [[DisneyOwnsThisTrope is a brand of theirs]]. They call it [[{{Pun}} "Directional Marketing."]] Has the Franchise/CarmenSandiego company been absorbed so they ''can'' actually do that?
