* SuperlativeDubbing: The Norwegian dub uses a hilarious cast of women giving nearly all the chickens different dialects. Perhaps it's the 'style' of the original dub to have the chickens speak in a calm and low manner, but the Norwegian cast seemed to give a lot more emotion to every line and they clearly had a blast dubbing it.

* BrokenBase: MelGibson's presence in light of his questionable religious (see: anti-Semitic) beliefs has some people disowning this film as a result, while others are more forgiving because the movie is just so damn good.

* DesignatedVillain: Mr. Tweedy, to an extent. Mrs. Tweedy in contrast is much, much nastier (for example, the [[SlasherSmile evil grin]] on her face just before Edwina gets the chop, showing that, yes, Mrs. Tweedy ''[[ForTheEvulz enjoys]]'' [[AxCrazy killing them]]).

* UnfortunateCharacterDesign: The chickens' bodies consist of two bulbous hips and cylindrical torsos. If you only look at their bodies from the shoulders down, they look like, well, let's just say, [[IncrediblyLamePun a cock]]. Even the female ones.

* AlternateCharacterInterpretation: Is Rocky a {{Jerkass}} [[spoiler: who lead the girls on false promises and turned their backs on them only to have a sudden attack of conscience that prompts him to return]], or is he a sympathetic man (or rooster) who was put into this situation by a goal driven chicken who would stop at nothing to get what she wants, and gets treated like a Jerkass even though he technically, never lied in the first place.

* AnimationAgeGhetto: ''WesternAnimation/ChickenRun'' is a semi-mature film, but was billed as a children's film.
** According to TheOtherWiki, the producers attempted to avert this by dropping a character from the early scripts named Nobby (who was supposed to be Ginger's little brother, and thus the KidAppealCharacter) in order to avoid being excessively cute.

* AwesomeMusic: Following their triumph with the ''WesternAnimation/{{Antz}}'' score, John Powell and Harry Gregson-Williams made this score, possibly the best score to ever feature a ''kazoo''. [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oUDCbOVmSdU Main Titles]] and [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eFR3Fmx2BP4&feature=related Building the Crate]] stand out.

* EnsembleDarkhorse: Babs.
* GutPunch: As noted in Creator/RogerEbert's review, Edwina's death (complete with her ''bones'' on a dinner table right after), drives home the point that Mrs. Tweedy (and the film) aren't fooling around.
* HilariousInHindsight : Timothy Spall became more famous a few years later playing [[HarryPotter another rat]].
