* ViewerSpeciesConfusion: Brutus and Nero are often called crocodiles (and they do have narrow snouts like crocodiles, rather than broad ones like alligators), but [[https://s-media-cache-ak0.pinimg.com/736x/85/5e/fd/855efd4f96ec14db887bab4f5a056bde.jpg the concept art]] shows that they are alligators.

* CommonKnowledge: Despite what many reviews claim, Marahute is never posited in-story to be the LastOfHerKind; [=McCleach=] only says she's "rare".

* ValuesDissonance: The original 1977 film has some mild examples, mostly to do with today's stricter ratings standards. It can be startling to see a HalfDressedCartoonAnimal knocking back moonshine, to say nothing of the villain's carefree attitude toward gun safety.

There's also the little issue that, while all of the other mice in the Rescue Aid Society represent individual countries, the only one from Africa we see is just. . . Africa.

* CompleteMonster: Percival C. [=McLeach=] from ''Down Under'' is a sick and twisted poacher. He starts by kidnapping Cody, a child who confronts him about his poaching, and then tricks the authorities into thinking Cody is dead by throwing Cody's backpack to the crocodiles. From there he tosses knives at Cody, locks him in one of the cramped cages he keeps the animals he's captured in, and to top it all off, ties Cody to a crane and lowers him into another river filled with crocodiles, only to raise him back up, then almost does it again just to toy with him. When the power on his half-track goes out, stopping him from lowering Cody, [=McLeach=] takes out a gun and shoots the rope holding him above the river. Finally, he is seen abusing his "pet", Joanna the Goanna.

* SequelDisplacement: Some fans of ''Down Under'' have never heard of the original film. It doesn't help that almost every time Creator/WaltDisneyHomeVideo put out the ''Rescuers'' movies on a new format in North America, ''Down Under'' beat its predecessor by at least a year.[[note]]After ''The Rescuers''[='=] 1989 theatrical re-release made less money than did both ''Disney/TheLittleMermaid''[='=]s premiere engagement, and ''Disney/PeterPan''[='=]s '89 re-release, Disney decided to release those two movies on VHS and [=LaserDisc=] before it, with ''Down Under'' following them as ''Mermaid''[='=]s successor in the Animated Canon. Consequently, in the United States and Canada, ''Down Under'' made its VHS/[=LaserDisc=] debut in 1991, and its DVD debut in 2000. ''The Rescuers'' made its VHS/[=LaserDisc=] debut in 1992, and its DVD debut in 2003. When the time came for Disney to release the movies on Blu-ray, they finally bucked this trend, by putting both of them out in 2012 -- on the same 2-Movie Collection Blu-ray Disc. In Europe, however, ''Rescuers'' made its video debut in 1991, followed by ''Down Under'' the following year; the only explanation for this is because Disney delayed ''Down Under'''s release in the Eastern Hemisphere by nearly a year.[[/note]]
