* AntiClimax: [[spoiler:Retro is defeated]] rather pathetically in this version, though in context it works. In the original version, which didn't share TheVerse with Creator/Swing123, Retro was TheBigBad and ''Trouble Island'' was meant to be the GrandFinale to garfieldodie's trilogy. Here, Retro hasn't been seen since Calvin's [[Fanfic/CanYouImagineThat first adventure]] which was established in ''Fanfic/TheCollective'' as taking place [[spoiler: several years ago]]. In between that time, Calvin and his friends have [[Fanfic/CalvinAndHobbesTheSeries had]] [[Fanfic/CalvinAndHobbesIILostAtSea a LOT]] [[Fanfic/TheCollective of harrowing]] [[Fanfic/CalvinAndHobbesIIIDoubleTrouble adventures]] that have given them plenty of experience dealing with mad scientists and dangers much worse than just a guy with an imagination device. As such, Retro's plans fall apart at the halfway point, and the rest of the fic is spent with Calvin and the gang backing him further and further into a corner until [[spoiler: he's forced into an escape pod that will send him to a high-security prison that will make escaping nigh impossible.]] Not the most epic of final confrontations, but then again, [[Fanfic/RetroChill it's not]] ''[[Fanfic/RetroChill meant]]'' [[Fanfic/RetroChill to be their last battle with Retro...]]

* CallingTheOldManOut: All of Calvin and his father's grievences come to a downright ''explosive'' collision in this story, having been built up since the rewritten version of ''Fanfic/CanYouImagineThat''. To elaborate, Dad drags the family to their awful vacation site once more, but Calvin-- take note that this is the rewritten version of Calvin that's been through '''A LOT''' more than his original-verse counterpart-- is having none of it, calling out his Dad for always doing things ''he'' wants to do with no input from his wife or son, overriding Dad's condescending arguments to the point where the latter finally snaps. Mom manages to intervene before things can get worse, but by that point Calvin is so fed up with everything that he storms off in disgust.
