* AwesomeMusic: The music for this was done by Howard Kaylan and Mark Volman, AKA Flo (Volman) and Eddie (Kaylan), of The Turtles, [[Music/FrankZappa The Mothers Of Invention]] and ''WesternAnimation/DownAndDirtyDuck'' fame.
* CanonSue: Rob. He's destined from before he was born to become a superhero, is always morally righteous, plays sports well, and is a musical prodigy. The people around him ''constantly'' talk about how wonderful he is.
** The entire first 8 minutes of the film are nothing but praise for Rob. ''Entirely''. This is an 80 minute movie.

* EnsembleDarkhorse: Ping, the [[WesternAnimation/GarfieldAndFriends Garfield]]-voiced gorilla. Supposedly, besides attempting to make money to rebuild a bar, the characters traveling with Rob believe that they have a "duty to fight against evil," but out of all of them, Ping is the only one who actually does anything against the Jackal antagonists. In fact, he's probably more effective than Rob is, American Rabbit or not.

** The Jackals' theme sounds very similar to Foghat's "Slow Ride".

* AdaptationDisplacement: Many people may not know about the original book[[note]]Originally titled "The Legend of the American Rabbit."[[/note]] by artist Stewart Moskowitz which was first published three years earlier. On the other hand, other than allowing the use of his characters, he wasn't directly involved in the making of the movie.

* {{Anvilicious}} - About everything from honesty to sportsmanship to proper piano technique.
* AntiClimaxBoss - The final duel between Rob and the main villain is ridiculous and uninteresting. It starts with Vultor kidnapping the moose child at the dam and leaving him on a rock in the middle of ''ankle-deep water'' '''closeby the heroes''' and ends with [[spoiler:Vultor losing control of his flight in a snowstorm.]]
* AssPull - Everywhere. From the Legacy to the lightning powers to the world domination scheme involving chocolate. It's all there.
* AwesomeMusic - The music for this was done by Howard Kaylan and Mark Volman, AKA Flo (Volman) and Eddie (Kaylan), of The Turtles, [[Music/FrankZappa The Mothers Of Invention]] and ''WesternAnimation/DownAndDirtyDuck'' fame.
* CanonSue - Rob. He's destined from before he was born to become a superhero, is always morally righteous, plays sports well, and is a musical prodigy. The people around him ''constantly'' talk about how wonderful he is.
* DesignatedHero - Rob constantly misses opportunities to stop the Jackals throughout the movie, and only directly stops like two of them by the time the movie's over.

* HamAndCheese - Kenneth Mars deserves credit for taking this route as [[BigBad Vultor]]. His performance is possibly the only remotely enjoyable thing about this movie.
* HilariousInHindsight - At the end, someone says "Wow! It looks like he's doing a [[VideoGame/StarFox barrel]] [[MemeticMutation roll]]!

* SuspiciouslySimilarSong - The main theme to the movie sound a lot like {{John Williams}}'s {{Superman}} theme.
* TheyWastedAPerfectlyGoodPlot: In the movie, it is mentioned that not all jackals are bad. However, every jackal seen in the movie is a villain. They could have had Vultor decide that [[YouHaveOutlivedYourUsefulness the jackals were no longer useful to him]] and leaving them to die on the burning boat in New Orleans. Robert could have saved them, leading to a HeelFaceTurn.
