Added DiffLines:

* TastesLikeDiabetes: The film's ending is so ridiculously happy it's almost unbearable. Meggie defeats Capricorn and his men on her own, reads almost every character back into their own books, and somehow gets her mother's voice to return. To add onto the sugary ending, Dustfinger is read back into his book and happily reunites with his wife and it's implied that Meggie and Farid get together.

Added DiffLines:

* {{Squick}}: The Meggie/Dustfinger pairing. Meggie is young enough to be Dustfinger's daughter, but this is strangely popular.

* CrackShip: Strangely enough, Basta/Meggie has gotten some attention. Some don't pay attention to the FoeYay {{Squick}} of an older man being a woman young enough to be his daughter or the fact that he's threatened her and her father.

Added DiffLines:

* DarknessInducedAudienceApathy: According to Fenoglio, he let both Capricorn and Basta survive his book while letting Dustfinger die, as he is rather pessimistic about the world, believing that murderers get off scot-free while the innocent die. This may have been the reason why he chose to write a sequel to rectify that.

* AccidentalAesop: As Roger Ebert sarcastically put it in his [[http://rogerebert.suntimes.com/apps/pbcs.dll/article?AID=/20090121/REVIEWS/901219989 review]] of TheMovie, "I never knew reading was so dangerous. No child seeing 'Inkheart' will ever want to be read to again, especially if that child loves its mother, as so many do." Ironic considering the overall intended message of the books.

* DieForOurShip: Let's just say that people weren't too happy about [[spoiler:Meggie getting together with Doria instead of Farid.]]



* FanonDiscontinuity: 'Inkdeath'? What is this 'Inkdeath' you speak of? I know of no such horrible thing.

* FanPreferredCouple: Some people were on board for the Meggie/Farid ship [[spoiler:even after ''Inkdeath'' where Meggie gets together with a different character.]]
** Despite both of them being HappilyMarried to their spouses, especially when they were in different universes, Dustfinger/Resa is pretty popular.

* CompleteMonster: Capricorn, which is thankfully made extremely clear in the novels, who burns entire houses to the ground and creates a horrific monster to murder his enemies. Also present is the Silver Prince, who forces children to work in his mines, murders the Laughing Prince's son, and [[{{Squick}} bathes in the blood of faeries]].

** Part of this ''did'' come from the first book's implications that [[InformedAttribute he was a more complex character than the other Fire Starters]] - Dustfinger even notes that Basta never ''enjoyed'' killing animals and hurting people like the rest of the group - but given that this is either dropped after Book One or implied (by the narative) to not excuse his evilness, it's quite {{Egregious}} that people still insist as much. Especially given how they brush his indisputably evil deeds under a rug.

* MagnificentBastard: Orpheus. Not above harassing and (implied) molesting a young woman half his age just for being pretty and the daughter of his biggest hero. "Stealing" words of the creator of the world he lives in to create strange animals and entertainment devices just for his own purposes. Oh, and he tries to get rid of any other person with the Magic Voice. Even if it's a 13-yearsold girl. Doesn't stop at manipulating a pregnant woman and murder. [[{{Sarcasm Mode}} Lovely indeed]].
