* CruelAndUnusualDeath: [[spoiler:He gets cornered in a hall of mirrors in front of Bill, who cannot help him and can only watch while Pennywise slowly smashes through one mirror and devours him, splattering blood all over the glass.]]


Added DiffLines:

* EatenAlive: By Pennywise.


-->'''Pennywise''': Tasty, tasty, beautiful fear!



* LovesTheSoundOfScreaming: Absolutely adores the sounds of his victims' terror before feeding on them.

to:

* LovesTheSoundOfScreaming: Absolutely adores the sounds of his victims' terror before feeding on them. Best shown when he attacks Eddie at Neibolt, where he drags it out as long as possible to make him more and more terrified, and is literally salivating by the end.
-->'''Pennywise''': Tasty, tasty, beautiful fear!

Added DiffLines:

** Could be AmbiguouslyBi given that he seemed attracted to Bev and Greta as a young teenager, and is married (albeit unhappily) to a woman as an adult.

Added DiffLines:

* PlayingSick: [[spoiler:''Chapter Two'' reveals that he was actually faking being sick the day Georgie died because he didn't want to play outside.]]


* ManInWhite: Besides the classical clown make-up, IT is also dressed entirely in a deathly white clown costume. This is a visual foreshadowing to his true form.


* AssholeVictim: [[spoiler:IT finally dies at the hands of the Losers Club in Chapter 2.]]


* AdaptationalCurves: Inverted. Ben, in the books, is very overweight to the point of it being potentially dangerous. Here, he's a little pudgy but you could easily see him growing out of it as he gets older as happens in the books.

* TheHeart: Highlighted in ''Chapter Two''. Ben is instrumental in keeping the group together, and repeatedly tells the others to at least hear Mike out when they threaten to bail.

* TookALevelInBadass: Timid, shy, chubby little Ben becomes as stalwart a fighter against IT as anyone else, and as an adult he's one of the most physically capable of the others.

* MadeOfEvil: [[spoiler: IT is the emodiment of evil, he came to Derry and turned it into his personal hunting ground. He targets children because they are more interesting prey than adults and Creator/BillSkarsgard deliberately stylised him after carnivorous animals, to distinguish how animalistic and uncompromising IT truely is.]]

* HeIsAllGrownUp: He grew up to be ''extremely'' good looking, which does not go unnoticed by the other Losers. Or Pennywise.



* HeIsAllGrownUp: He grew up to be ''extremely'' good looking, which does not go unnoticed by the other Losers. Or Pennywise.

Added DiffLines:

* ClownSpecies: Of a sort. Pennywise definitely isn't meant to look like he's a human performer under makeup, even though it's implied the form was inspired by a real clown in Derry's past. One hint of this is that Pennywise's bulbous forehead makes his head look like a balloon, which is made clearer when it literally deflates and moves like a leaky rubber balloon in ''Chapter Two'''s climax. This suggests that in part, Pennywise is based on the ''concept'' of clowns rather than trying to look like a plausible human clown, which signifies how out-of-touch IT is as an abominable entity, and likely aids IT in scaring people.

** Plays this card again in the second film against a little girl named Victoria. When she initially backs off from him in fright, he laments that he understands and everyone shuns him and makes fun of him because he's so ugly; preying on Victoria's sympathy as she also gets made fun of for the scar on her cheek. He lunges and kills her shortly after she comes closer to ease the feelings she believes she'd hurt.
