* AwardSnub: Given its tremendous critical acclaim, it appeared eligible to be nominated for an Academy Award for Best Animated Feature, but unfortunately didn't.

* AdaptationDisplacement: The film is (''very'') loosely inspired on the children's book ''[[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Iron_Man_(novel) The Iron Man]]''. How loose? Well, there was a dragon, for starters. Not to mention that [[spoiler:the iron man doesn't "die" at the end.]]

* HypeBacklash: Averted so far. While the film has nary an unfavorable response, it's still currently ''juuuuuuust'' enough below the radar to not be oversaturated with praise.

* SomeAnvilsNeedToBeDropped: Friendly giant robots aside, this film is ''very'' explicit in its condemnation of nuclear weapons, and of [[RedScare paranoia]] and [[DirtyCommunists xenophobia]] in general. It also drops the anvil that you are who you choose to be

* HeReallyCanAct: Vin Diesel as the Giant. He doesn't get much dialogue, but whenever the Giant speaks with his grunting and groaning, the mood is absolutely spot-on. The DVD features also reveal that less work was needed to create the mechanical sound from Diesel's vocals than you might think.

* NarmCharm: Hogarth's incredibly sincere "I love you" to the Giant just before his [[spoiler:HeroicSacrifice]] has been poked fun at even by die-hard fans for how weirdly out-of-place and even unnecessary it is. But it just works!
