Added DiffLines:

* GeniusBonus: The magic sleigh, heavy furs, reindeer and going up and down chimneys are all straight from Siberia, where Saint Nicholas was interpreted as a kind of super-shaman, who flew out the smoke-hole of his medicine tent and travelled the spirit world in a sleigh pulled by reindeer. Now consider that Santa's accent isn't just Russian, but eastern Russian.

* LauncherOfAThousandShips: Jack Frost. He's paired with the other Guardians, Pitch, and Jamie. There's also a new crossover ship with him in it made every minute, the most popular being with [[{{Disney/Tangled}} Rapunzel]], [[{{WesternAnimation/Brave}} Merida]], and [[WesternAnimation/HowToTrainYourDragon Hiccup]]. And there's already quite the amount of MarySue [=OCs=] being shipped with him as well. [[http://jack-frost-group.deviantart.com/gallery/36261346#/d5n5ygb And the original, people!]]

* EnsembleDarkHorse: Cupcake and Baby Tooth are this.
** And Phil the Yeti, to an extent.
** Despite only a few seconds of screentime, the little mouse is beloved in Latin-America. The Latin-American dub has the Tooth Fairy say that the mouse is one of them, only from the "latina division", because in Latin-America, it's not the Tooth Fairy who bring money to children in place of their teeth, it's actually a little mouse named Perez.
** The fans are also very fond of Jack's sister (despite she isn't named and only appeared once) as well as Pitch's daughter (even if she doesn't appear in the movie).
* EstrogenBrigade: Jack Frost has earned himself quite the following, mowing in tons of fanart and shipping. Lampshaded rather nicely in a [[http://rufftoon.tumblr.com/post/26685571155/wow-the-influx-of-jack-frost-fanart-is-almost comic drawn by one of the film's story artists]].

** Pitch can be viewed as one too, once you know he came through the same hell as Jack and yet, wasn't as lucky as he was. That's harder when you know his backstory too...
** Toothiana as well. In the film, children stop believing in her, thus making her palace disintegrate and her wings to stop working. But if you know ''her'' backstory...

* AlternativeCharacterInterpretation: Everyone from far in Rise of Guardians, except for Jack Frost. The reason is that some people include their backstories from the book in the movie, while others prefer to keep them divided. Even the writer and some artists working in Dreamworks have their own way of viewing the series. That's mainly due to the fact that the book series isn't finished yet to decide if the books and movie are from a same universe.
** Pitch is one of most disputable characters in Rise of Guardians. Was he someone who only manipulated the characters of the story (mostly Jack) during all the story, and wanted only to create a world filled with fear for his own selfish pleasure, or was he only a very lonely man who only wanted to be believed in, and truly wanted Jack as his friend? The scene in Antarctica seems to show a more complex side of him.
** According to the DVD's audio commentary as well as the script of the movie, Pitch was definitely genuine in his opening up to Jack, and truly hated to be alone. Pitch probably empathizes with Jack, and may really views him as a potential friend but to one extent. When Pitch said that the both of them could create a world, Jack cut him in by asking if everything would be only Pitch Black, and this latter doesn't even try to deny this. So that may be that Pitch doesn't know about the difference between a tool and an ally, as the two may be the same for him.
** Bunnymund too. Some people like thinking he is the same as in the book, while others tend to keep them divided, despite how different the two are.
** There is Tooth and Jack's relationship which is unclear. Some people see her like a mother figure for Jack, while others are okay with her being a possible love interest. That may be because their little flirtation wasn't really planned, so that's why this is subtle.

* CrossoverShip: Jack/Rapunzel is a popular couple in ''SugarWiki/RiseOfTheBraveTangledDragons'', as is Jack/Merida and Jack/Hiccup. Also, now that Disney/{{Frozen}}, an adaptation of ''Literature/TheSnowQueen'', has been released, Jack/Elsa has become immensely popular. There's also a small following for Frosting ([[PeterPan Wendy Darling]]/Jack Frost) due to Jack's personality being similar to Peter's.
* DieForOurShip: While some people love the Frostbite/Rainbow Snowcone (Jack x Toothiana) pairing, others don't like it because they find it too weird (seeing Tooth as a mother figure for Jack) or because they are all over others pairings, like Jack/Elsa or Jack/Rapunzel, or any others yaoi pairings with Jack in them.
* DracoInLeatherPants: It's for this reason Pitch has as many fangirls as Jack. Some have even said, without a single trace of sarcasm, that he's just a complete [[TheWoobie woobie]] who should be forgiven for all his misdeeds (which, y'know, includes his attempts to rule all the children with fear). More fangirls have gone on to compare him to Ralph from Disney/WreckItRalph in that they're villains who want to be accepted, even though they have almost ''nothing'' in common and that unlike Pitch, the most villainous thing Ralph ever did was smash a cake.

* MemeticSexGod: Not surprisingly Jack Frost counts. Fangirls think he is fine. Even the Tooth Fairy sprites swoon over him!
** Bunny and Pitch as well. Being voiced by Hugh Jackman and Jude Law respectively may have something to do with it.

** Early on in the fandom, someone pointed out that without audio for Jack's "and the Easter Kangaroo" line, it looked like he was saying "You're an asshole". Double points for him pointing towards the camera. Needless to say, it caught wind with the other fans.
