* AliensSpeakingEnglish: [[TranslationConvention Or possibly French]], but either way there doesn't seem to be a LanguageBarrier between Marinette and Zootopia. [[spoiler:Likely justified if Tikki's Lucky Charm theory is correct.]]

* CallingMeALogarithm: [[spoiler:When Nick describes the situation in the city as a pandemonium, the polar bear driving him objects, saying he has relatives who are pandas. Nick tells him to pick up a dictionary.]]

* TrappedInAnotherWorld: Marinette and Tikki have wound up in Zootopia, for initially unexplained reasons, [[spoiler:though the fact that the Butterfly has somehow followed her there has given them renewed hope of finding a way back. Tikki later suggests that they were brought here when Marinette unconsciously cast Lucky Charm in the catacombs when she was thinking about getting away from Paris, which was just before her timer started running out. As she puts it, "this entire world is one big, souped-up Lucky Charm!" Marinette is justifiably skeptical of this, given that the world is supposed to have had thousands of years of history when she arrived, but she decides that she can't risk the possibility that using her powers to return home would destroy this world.]]

* BittersweetEnding: [[spoiler:Ultrasonic is defeated and Zootopia is saved, and while the Butterfly is still out there and still as powerful as ever, he's implied to have given up in despair. Nick has been fired from the ZPD, but he avoids jail time for his actions during the crisis and is happy as long as Judy is safe - they get engaged in the last scene. As for Marinette, she finds a new home with Clawhauser and, in contrast her self-destructive behaviour to the past year, she is willing to make the best of things in Zootopia. But it doesn't change the fact that Adrien is dead and she may never see Alya or her parents again.]]

* HeroInsurance: [[spoiler:Played with. While the Ultrasonic crisis ends with Ladybug repairing the damage as usual and no apparent loss of life, Nick loses his job for his over in the jailbreak (probably not helped by the fact that he was already suspended), but he does escape any charge beyond Misdemeanour Obstruction of Justice - Judy states that no jury would convict him. Likewise, while Marinette was previously in trouble for her interference in the first Ultrasonic attack, she avoids those charges thanks to saving the day, and it appears any lingering consequences from her previous runaway attempts, such as the curfew, have been lifted due to her willingness to work with the police as Ladybug.]]

* DepartmentOfChildDisservices: Played with. Marinette has been in the foster care system for nearly a year when the story opens, and has been shuffled out of two homes as a result of her repeated runaway attempts. We don't learn a lot about the first two sets of parents, but we do know that the first had her moved on immediately after the first runaway, while the second seem to have stuck with her a while longer before she was placed with the Whites. But in any case, we know she wasn't running away because of any problem with the homes, but because she was determined to find a way back to Paris, and the worst we actually see from the Whites is Luna's harsh attitude when she picks Marinette up from the precinct, which Art tries to talk her down from.

* IChooseToStay: [[spoiler:After learning that her path home may cause Zootopia to cease to exist, Marinette decides that she can't take that risk.]]



* NoSympathy: Nick admits to being pissed off by Marinette's behaviour: from his perspective, this is a teenage girl who has gotten herself kicked out of multiple foster homes out of an apparent preference for living under a bridge, despite having no apparent complaints about the homes themselves. When pushed, he explains to Judy what happened to his mother after the incident with the Junior Rangers and how it led to him living on the streets for a while, making the point that Marinette has little to complain about after what the city has tried to do for her.

* TwoRightsMakeAWrong: During the flashback fight against the Chemist, Ladybug manages to separate her from her weapon, a possessed beaker, and she throws her yo-yo at it. At the same time, Chat Noir chases after the beaker and would have been able to grab it in time if the yo-yo hadn't hit his hand and caused him to knock it away. As such, the Chemist gets the beaker back and the fight gets drawn out.

You’re a sad, pathetic shell of a man who can’t accept defeat with grace. You think you can beat Ladybug? You think you have a chance of seeing your ‘dearest wish’ come true? That’s about as likely as me not enjoying a good piece of cheese. Face it: You’re never going to win."]]
