* The budding friendship between Richard and Long John Silver, with Richard pretty much taking Jim Hawkins's place in the story, it was bound to happen.
** Richard's friendship with all the books is a good example.
* The scene near the end when the Pagemaster ''summoned'' the four characters Richard had to face in his challenges. They all congratulate him, each in their own way.
-->'''Jekyll''': You prevailed over evil.
-->'''Ahab''': Ah, you looked Moby Dick in the eye, boy.
-->'''Silver''': Ah, you had pirate stuff, me lad! An' don't no one speak any different.
-->'''Dragon''': (''folds its wings majestically, as if in a salute'') SKREEEEEEEEEEE!
* The very end of the film, [[spoiler: when Richard's parents find him asleep in the treehouse, finally having gotten over his fear of climbing the tree.]]
** And almost immediately prior to that, when Richard sees the ramp the other kids were jumping. He stares at it a moment, licks his lips...[[spoiler: and pedals top-speed at it, and jumps it, letting out a triumphant ''"[[BigYes YES!]]"'' as he lands. It's even better in the novelization, when the kids from before are ''watching.'']]
* At the end, Richard, who told all three books that he'd check them out, is told he can only take two. The librarian, Mr. Dewey, removes [[LovableCoward Horror]] from the top of the stack. Richard protests.
-->"But I promised I'd check him out.
-->"You promised whom?"
-->Richard pointed to Horror. "Him...I mean...umm... Do you think just this once I could?... Please, Mr. Dewey, I really need..."
-->Mr. Dewey raised a silencing hand. "Shhh. [[MeaningfulEcho I have a talent for guessing what people need]]." He glanced around to make sure that no one was watching, then placed Horror back in Richard's arms. "Just this once."
* The PC adventure game has Richard help Frankenstein's Monster find a girlfriend.
