Good Angel Bad Angel / Animated Films

  • The Emperor's New Groove features two amusing sequences where Kronk, Yzma's loveable-lug henchman, has to deal with the bickering of his Shoulder Angel and Shoulder Devil.
    • The first sequence shows that Kronk's angels are just as dumb as he is: instead of refuting Shoulder Angel's arguments, Shoulder Devil makes snide comments about the Angel's wardrobe, and then says "look what I can do!" while doing a one-handed headstand.
    Kronk: But what does that have to do with anyth-
    Shoulder Angel: No, no, he's got a point.
    • And the second one has Kronk having to explain to the Angel what's going on because he (the Angel) was busy having his hair done. As they converse, as so often is done to imply an internal monologue, Kronk's shown speaking aloud and apparently to himself, utterly bewildering the other characters. The angel never gets to offer any advice, as Yzma launches into her "The Reason You Suck" Speech, climaxing with her insulting his cooking, prompting Kronk's Devil into a Heel–Face Turn, because Even Evil Has Standards:
    Shoulder Devil: That's it. (cocks his pitchfork like a gun) She's going down.
  • In Disney's version of Pinocchio, Jiminy Cricket is hired by the "Blue Fairy" to act as Pinocchio's conscience. Note that "Jiminy Cricket" has the same initials as "Jesus Christ". This is intentional, as at the time this was the acceptable replacement term. Pinocchio's own stupidity... er, naivete... meant he didn't need a devil. In the book, he killed the (originally unnamed) cricket with a hammer, and its ghost came back to haunt/annoy him.
