* CompleteMonster: [[GeneralRipper General Mandible]], a megalomaniac ant soldier [[PoliticallyIncorrectVillain who views worker ants as inferior vermin and soldiers as superior]]. He manipulates the Queen into going to war with the otherwise peaceful Termites. It's implied he sent word to warn the Termites so that the Queen's troops would lack the element of surprise. Both sides are destroyed, with the sole survivor being Z, which irritates Mandible to no end. Mandible engineers a dig for the miners so they will hit a water source that will drown every ant in the colony including the Queen, except for his small faction of army loyalists who will be blindly obedient to him. He tortures Z's best friend Weaver to find Princess Bala after Z took her away, threatens to kill Weaver's girlfriend Azteca if he doesn't comply, then orders Z killed seconds after he promised not to do so and arranges Weaver's death as well. To start his new ideal colony he plans to [[AndNowYouMustMarryMe force Princess Bala to marry him]] after he has killed her mother and everyone else.

*** And it becomes worse when you remember that since they're from the same colony, Bala and Z are both children of the same queen and thus ''siblings!''

* AlasPoorScrappy: Muffy. She's condescending and nauseating, but she doesn't deserve to get crushed by a flyswatter--complete with GoryIndiscretionShot. (If anything, she's killed because she wanted to give Z and Bala some food, but is briefly distracted by some snuggly time with her husband.)

** The whole plot of a worker ant falling in love with the colony's princess is meant to be heartwarming, and it is. However, it somewhat loses a lot of that and comes off as rather disturbing to some when you take into account of the fact that Creator/WoodyAllen is old enough to be Creator/SharonStone's father.

It's doubly squicky considering Allen has had controversial romantic relationships with women who are even younger than Stone is.

* HilariousInHindsight: It's rather odd to see Creator/WoodyAllen and Creator/SharonStone play love interests when, only two years later, they would star in ''Film/PickingUpThePieces'' playing Husband and Wife where the Wife gets murdered by the Husband in the beginning of the film. It's also ironic considering Stone's feature film debut was in ''Film/StardustMemories'' as an actress on a train flirting with Allen.
