* FriendlyFandoms: One has sprung up between this movie and ''WesternAnimation/GravityFalls'', ''WesternAnimation/{{ParaNorman}}'', and ''VideoGame/{{Psychonauts}}''. The four together make up a group dubbed the "''SugarWiki/MysteryKids''".

** Many people who saw the movie in its initial release were not impressed because ''they didn't''!

* TheProblemWithLicensedGames: The game released for the PS2 and Wii does a decent job of recreating the Pink Palace, but is otherwise filled with dull mini-games. Enemies inexplicably inhabit the Other World ''before'' it's sinister nature is revealed, and the voice acting is wooden. Even the film's soundtrack is replaced by a generic spooky fare.

* {{Narm}}: The scene where Coraline finds the first soul/eye, specifically the Ghost Boy's dialogue. "Bless you, Miss, you found me! But there are two still lost." The cheery tone combined with the line itself makes it sound more like a bit "[[VideoGame/SuperMarioBros Princess is in another castle]]."

** Is the Other Mother's first transformation an intimidation tactic or her giving up on trying to look nice? Or is her starvation taking the ability to disguise herself away from her, and she's losing control of her form? The second transformation, being offscreen and without theatrics, would indicate so, but it's not entirely clear.

* GeniusBonus: The book is that much more enjoyable for those who know a bit about TheFairFolk in British folklore. The Other Mother is as likely as not one such folk, who would often kidnap and sometimes devour children. The portal between Coraline's regular world and the magical world where the Other Mother has power is one of many such gateways in folklore (which sometimes look like little doors). The stone with a hole in it that Coraline uses to find the other childrens' souls is significant because [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Adder_stone adder stones]] are said to help see through fairy or witches' illusions (among ''many'' other uses, such as healing, warding off evil, finding things, etc). The mushrooms surrounding the old well is a fairy ring; another supernatural thing where [[http://www.ancient-origins.net/human-origins-folklore/do-you-dare-enter-fairy-ring-mythical-mushroom-portals-supernatural-003677 not-so-good things]] happen to those who step in it, so [[spoiler: Coraline using it to trap the hand was a very smart move on her part]]. Finally, [[spoiler:one of the dead children being revealed to have [[OurFairiesAreDifferent butterfly wings and a love of eating flowers]] suggests that the [[TheFairFolk Other Mother]] [[ImAHumanitarian doesn't just hunt human children]].]]
