* EnsembleDarkHorse: The Penguins and King Julien XIII. The Penguins were only a sub-plot to start and keep things rolling, and King Julien was only intended to have two lines, but they became so popular that not only did they get extended roles, but they also got larger roles in the sequel, and ''then'' they got a hugely popular spin-off even though nobody knows how they got back to the Zoo in that continuity.
** From the third film, some viewers (and critics) found Capitaine [=DuBois=] more interesting, or at least more rounded, than the heroes due to simply being so determined and motivated. And Vitaly has became a huge fan favorite, his popularity often eclipsing that of the Zoosters. (Note how many more tropes they have on the character page than the others.)

* SomeAnvilsNeedToBeDropped: The second film contains some good lessons about love regarding the LoveTriangle between Gloria, Melman, and Moto Moto. First off, Moto Moto is the first man Gloria meets and is apparently interested in, and she does go along with the fact he really loves how fat she is. However, their date quickly falls apart because Moto Moto literally cannot think of any other reason he's attracted to her besides her weight. Melman, meanwhile, in his speech, never once mentions her physical beauty or traits, and shows that he really does care about ''her'' and not her body. Gloria is touched by this and ultimately gets together with Melman. The lesson being that there has to be far more than physical attraction to really be worthy of someone's love and that you have to love the person inside the body, no matter how good-looking they are. Whoever thought they'd teach this lesson through two hippos and a giraffe?
* TastesLikeDiabetes: Melman's heartfelt profession of his love for Gloria and later his smaller speech as he is taken to the volcano is absolutely ''beautiful''. Maybe too beautiful for some viewers.

** Alex vs. the old lady in the second movie. Alex punches old lady in the face: DudeNotFunny. [[WhenEldersAttack Old lady]] [[CurbStompBattle fights back]] and [[GroinAttack wounds his pride]]: Hilarious.
** The angry [[MeadowRun Beach Run]] in the first film.
*** Alex threatening to kill Marty, clone him, kill his clones and then [[ArsonMurderAndJaywalking never speak to him again]].
** When the penguins return to Madagascar with the ship and Gloria asks where the humans are.
-->'''Skipper''': We killed them and ate their livers.
-->(Gloria stares at him slack-jawed)
-->'''Skipper''': Gotcha, didn't I?
** Also, from the sequel, King Julien in first class is very funny:
-->'''Julien:''' You, in-flight slave... ''(to Private, while hanging upside down from a chandelier)'' Bring me my nuts, on a silver platter.\\
'''Julien:''' Excuse me, this is first class, it's nothing personal, it's just that we're better than you.\\
'''Julien:''' Whatever happened to class separation?
** As well as that, look at the movie he's watching. It's crammed full of plane crashes, which he's laughing at. Maurice doesn't look so happy.
** Also there's the crash scene with the penguins. All four of the penguins are calm, King Julien is having fun, and in stark contrast, Alex, Marty and Melman are terrified out of their minds. Meanwhile, Gloria is ''asleep''.
-->'''Skipper:''' ''(with the plane in a death spiral)'' When it comes to air travel, we know that you have no choice whatsoever, but thanks again for choosing Air Penguin.
** Beforehand, Private explaining airline safety: "... place the mask over your face to hide your terrified expression from the other passengers."
** When stealing the All-Terrain-Vehicle for parts, the penguins are great:
-->'''Skipper:''' ''(to Kowalski)'' Reverse. ''(to Rico)'' Gas. ''(to Private)'' [[ArsonMurderAndJaywalking Music]]. ''("[[Music/{{Boston}} More Than a Feeling]]" plays)''
** In the beginning of the second movie, the Zoosters are boarding the plane.
-->'''Alex:''' "Hey! If you're ever in Manhattan, please call, okay?!"
-->'''Three Little Lemurs:''' *pick each others noses and then [[NauseaFuel eat... well...]] [[NoseNuggets what comes out.*]]
-->'''Alex:''' *look of pure disgust* "Uh, seriously...''call''."
** Nana gives Alex a "Titty Twister" during their fight, along with a couple of kicks [[GroinAttack "right in the batteries".]]
** {{Invoked|Trope}} in the second movie, when the penguins hit Nana with the tour bus and she goes flying with a "Boing!" sound effect. [[WordOfGod According to the DVD commentary]], that sound effect was added for comedy since people probably wouldn't find it funny otherwise.

However, their date quickly falls apart because Moto Moto literally cannot think of any other reason he's attracted to her besides her weight. Melman, meanwhile, in his speech, never once mentions her physical beauty or traits, and shows that he really does care about ''her'' and not her body. Gloria is touched by this and ultimately gets together with Melman. The lesson being that there has to be far more than physical attraction to really be worthy of someone's love and that you have to love the person inside the body, no matter how good looking they are. Who ever thought they'd teach this lesson through two hippos and a giraffe?
