YMMV / The Tale of Despereaux
- Tear Jerker: You will cry. You will cry a lot.
- Ugly Cute: Miggery is intended to be pig-like, but when you realize what a sweet person she is, and that she does all of her bad deeds because she's so lonely, you can't help but find her adorable.
- The Woobie: Despereaux and Mig both qualify.
- Big Lipped Alligator Moment: Boldo the MAN MADE OF FRUIT? Although it's not technically a moment, he could be a BLAM character. WTH?
- Judging from the way he appears, Boldo could well be a ghost whose particular gimmick involves "possessing" food.
- Magical Soup Genie, actually. The DVD says so, with the Build-a-Boldo game.
- Uncanny Valley: Princess Pea. Her body is the same proportion as the other humans, yet her head is about twice as large with a forehead that could hold a heliport.
