* StopHelpingMe: The sergeant that takes over bidding at the end of the movie ends up antagonizing the French butcher, leading to a bid war that likely would not have happened otherwise and pricing them out.
* VisualEffectsOfAwesome: [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LGCKS0UW3k0 The puppetry]] in the theatrical adaptation. After about 15 minutes you forget those horses aren't real. And that's not even getting into the amazing scenery or war effects.

* SoundtrackDissonance: The scene when Joey is forced to pull the gun is set to a [[NightmareFuel truly terrifying]] and discordant DarkReprise of the song that played when he first pulled the plough. The stage play employs this trope really well.

* NightmareFuel: The war scenes, the gas attack in the German Trenches, Joey getting tangled up in barbed wire and the horses jumping over the German Lines in the forest without their riders during the [[spoiler: failed British cavalry charge.]]
** NightmareFuel: In the movie, after Joey finishes getting tangled up in barbed wire and he is lying on the muddy ground, there is a lightning flash and for a single frightening moment, you can see what appears to be a SlasherSmile on his face. It's really a normal horse expression, but it still looks rather scary.
** One production, during a war scene, in dim lighting, the puppeteers ''flung off'' their horse puppet to create the effect of a carcass violently hitting the ground as the puppeteers, dressed accordingly to the time period, take their place a individual corpses of soldiers. The effect is as uncanny as it sounds.



* TearJerker: THE WHOLE THING.
