These are what we call the 'YMMV items.' Things that some people find in this work. We call them 'your mileage might vary' because not everyone sees these things in the same way. This starts discussions in the trope lists, a thing we don't want. Please use the discussion page if you'd like to discuss any of these items.
Crowning Moment of Awesome: "AMOS SLADE YOU TRIGGER HAPPY LUNATIC, GIVE ME THAT GUN!!!" Oh, and then she shoots his car and throws the gun back at him. Woman is badass.
Moral Event Horizon: Amos Slade comes dangerously close to crossing it when he attempts to shootTod after he saved their lives, but manages to avoid it when Copper convinces him that he's not their enemy and that he saved their lives.
Narm: Silly, empty-headed woman! Complete with a make up song.
They Wasted a Perfectly Good Plot: Why didn't Chief just die from the fall? That would have justified Copper's anger a lot more than "You broke his leg! I'll kill you!" and overall have made a bigger impact on the latter half on the movie as a whole. Apparently, Disney was going to kill him off, but decided not to for the sake of the young audience, which sounds weird when they killed off even beloved characters like Bambi's mom and Mufasa.
The Woobie: Tod - his mother is killed when he's only a baby, he gets chased and shot at by Chief and Slade, respectively (twice!), his best friend disowns him and wants him dead, his owner drops him off in a wildlife preserve for his own safety leaving him without survival skills and a friend in the world, and on top of it all, his neighbor (the badger) is a complete Jerk Ass to him. Things get a lot better after he meets Vixey, though...then worse...then better.
The widow as well - it's made very clear that Tod is her only source of companionship, and that it's just as heartbreaking for her as it is for him, if not more so, when she has to Shoo the Dog to protect him.
