* LawfulEvil: Captain Vidal, as is typical of Fascist-type villains. He's a good example of how an evil character who's lawful can be every bit as despicable as one who doesn't follow the rules.
* {{Moe}}: Ophelia for a few viewers.

* AntiClimaxBoss: Admittedly, [[spoiler: Captain Vidal]] is defeated with a little unsatisfying ease. For such a badass villain, you'd think he'd put up more of fight instead of going down via BoomHeadshot.

* HilariousInHindsight: Ofelia's name in the fantasy world is "Princess Moanna". Come 2016, when there's an actual DisneyPrincess [[Disney/{{Moana}} with this name]] (although spelled slightly differently).

** The Pale Man has also earned a little similarity to [[TheSlenderManMythos Slender Man]] due to both being mysterious supernatural creatures who consume children.

* AlternateCharacterInterpretation: The Faun is subject to this, as it is left deliberately ambiguous on how trustworthy he actually is.

* CompleteMonster: Captain Vidal is far more terrifying than the fantastical monsters in the same work and one of the most terrifying examples of this trope. Vidal first shows his nastiness when two poachers, a father and son, are brought to him in the dead of night, his men suspecting them of being rebels against the regime. He beats the younger man's face in with a bottle simply for defending his father against Vidal's accusations before shooting them both with a vague air of boredom and pleasure. When the men are proven not to be rebels, Vidal shows no remorse, only belittling his men to be more careful next time. At one point, Vidal captures a rebel with a horrible stutter and cheerfully shows the man his [[TortureTechnician torture instruments]] before offering to let him go if he can clearly count to three. He fails. Vidal is married to the young heroine's mother solely so she'll bear him an heir, and shows no concern over the possible death of his wife in childbirth. When the doctor attending her gives the aforementioned stuttering torture victim a mercy kill, Vidal coldly guns him down. At the film's end, [[spoiler:Vidal's stepdaughter Ofelia tries to rescue her baby brother, but Vidal catches her and [[WouldHurtAChild promptly shoots her fatally]].]] It's no accident that Vidal's place at the head of the table in the dinner scene parallels that of the Pale Man; each qualifies as a MonstrousHumanoid in his own way, one literal, one figurative.
