* FetishFuel: For some, Violet Beauregarde turning into a giant blueberry, which inflation fetishists took to to the point that "blueberry" is its own subcategory on a lot of adult sites. You can even purchase an inflatable blueberry suit from many of these sites (but please [[WhatDoYouMeanItsNotForKids ask your parent's permission]] first).

** Used with new lyrics in a ''FamilyGuy'' [[CharlieAndTheChocolateParody spoof episode]] in which Peter and company visit the Pawtucket Brewery and are serenaded with [[IntoxicationEnsues "Pure Inebriation"]].

** The Half Room, Wonka's office, is a visual treat. Wonka's balancing on half a chair, retrieves papers from half a safe, even the wallpaper is in half strips. (It even comes into play during the emotional climax; when Wonka is angrily reading back the fine print of the contact Charlie signed, he interjects ''et cetera, et cetera!'' every couple of words because ''the copy of the document is also in half!'')

Added DiffLines:

* ToughActToFollow: One of the biggest reasons adaptations of ''Literature/CharlieAndTheChocolateFactory'' after this one flop is because the lead is compared to Gene Wilder. Supposedly, Creator/NicholasCage was considered for a never-made adaptation in 1999, but lost interest. Not quite a bad thing, because many believe he'd have made the character even ''darker'' than Creator/TimBurton's interpretation did.

** Music/Primus covered the entire soundtrack of the 1971 movie. It goes from "Pure Imagination" to purely ''nightmarish''.

Added DiffLines:

* VisualEffectsOfAwesome: The production design team went all out for the factory sets, particularly the Chocolate Room and the Inventing Room. It definitely helps that none of the actors saw the sets before filming, making their reactions genuine. Julie Dawn Cole described the Chocolate Room as being "the kind of place that only existed at Disneyland."

* InkStainAdaptation: While it's become a widely-loved film over the years, as noted above under AdaptationDisplacement, beyond the U.K. most people know the story of ''Literature/CharlieAndTheChocolateFactory'' via this film, which is also the source of [[CharlieAndTheChocolateParody almost all the parody versions]]. Many fans tend to bristle at subsequent TruerToTheText adaptations (even ones that acknowledge the film via InternalHomage, such as the 2013 stage musical) out of hand for not duplicating this version's events and look. Given that Creator/RoaldDahl [[DisownedAdaptation disowned this film]], he likely wouldn't be happy to know that [[{{Irony}} it's become the public face of his story for much of the world]].

* SacredCow: It was already VindicatedByHistory by the time the 2005 film came out but [[DeaderThanDisco the huge backlash]] against the latter firmly pushed the original into this territory.

* {{Woolseyism}}: In the German dub, the ticket-finding computer's snarky reply "What would a computer do with a lifetime supply of chocolate?" becomes "Thank you, but I prefer sausage to chocolate."

* {{Woolseyism}}: In the German dub, the ticket-finding computer's snarky reply "What would a computer do with a lifetime supply of chocolate?" becomes "Thank you, very kind of you, but I prefer sausage to chocolate." Likewise, the scientist's frustrated response is "First, I'm going to teach this sassy computer some manners!"
