* JerkassWoobie: The Thief, especially if you've seen the Recobbled Cut where an old lady, a polo game, a self destructing war machine and even a bed '''THAT COMES ALIVE FOR NO REAL REASON''' try to kill him. At the finale, he finally gives up the Balls because he had it up to here with the trouble it caused him.

** Williams himself later said that this contributed to the film's ultimate fate. Because he was never sure when the film was going to be finished, every publicity piece on it had him declaring that it would be finished sometime soon. The fact that it never was ultimately hurt it's reputation and made him look like a liar.

* WhatTheHellCastingAgency: Arguably, Sean Connery as Tack near the end of the Recobbled Cut. Of course, this was Richard William's original intention, somewhat of a joke, since you wouldn't expect such a skinny guy to have such a deep and suave voice.

** Who was it that made [[spoiler:Tack tan ''in the middle of the night?'' '''The cel painters.''']]
*** ItGotBetter, [[http://orangecow.org/thief/thiefmk4caps/ThiefMk4Work1-166.jpeg the error has been fixed for Recobbled Cut Mark 4.]]
** The Completion Bonds Company, really. Contrary to [[RonTheDeathEater popular opinion]], they did not "steal" the film. Richard Williams had signed a contract with them that said he would complete the film at a fixed date for a specific amount of money, of which he did neither.

* SoOkayItsAverage: Not the animation, which is [[AwesomeArt god-tier]], but the story, which is little than your average Disney-like fairy tale.

* MagnumOpus: Was intended to be this for Richard Williams, in the traditional sense of the phrase ("master piece" as in "the piece you make once you've mastered your medium"), and many agree that what ''was'' completed [[AwesomeArt comes pretty damn close]].

* ParvumOpus: The Calvert and Miramax versions are this to Williams.

* {{Mondegreen}}: The little song from Zigzag's advisors announcing his presence in the original cut is hard to make out, leading to a lot of these.
