** The Once-Ler himself counts. His role as antagonist is a lot more ambiguous when compared to his abusive family and O'Hare, both of whom come off as a DesignatedVillain. The movie could have easily done away with him without losing any conflict.

** Others have argued that the message itself ''is'' actually subtle when compared to other GreenAesop[=s=] - or at least it was for the time.
*** And AnAesop that went overlooked was the fate of the town in the TV Special - once the Truffula trees were gone, they picked up and moved to brighter pastures, as any GhostTown in the Western US[[note]]Established during the Gold Rush in the 1800s[[/note]] can attest to being TruthInTelevision.

* TearJerker: Any DarkReprise played during the exoduses of the Barbaloots, Swamy-swams, Hummingfish and Once-Lers. Also the song Once-Ler sings when he's analyzing himself, guilty of what he's done and personally ashamed to be a Once-Ler.
