* UnspokenPlanGuarantee: Throughout. "I need chicken wire, shredded newspaper and a bucket of wheatpaste." You don't find out what it is for awhile, and you think 'It's going to be more NoodleImplements, isn't it?' But eventually, this trope is {{subverted}} when [[spoiler:that plan fails as soon as one of the Khaki Scouts describes it.]]

Added DiffLines:

* RenegadeSplinterFaction: The Khaki Scouts of Troop 55 are treated as such by the other scouts after they pull off their HeelFaceTurn.

Added DiffLines:

* MetaphoricalMarriage: Sam and Susie, who are both 12, convince Sam's cousin Ben, a teenage senior Khaki scout, to marry them to each other. Ben explains that the marriage won't have any legal standing, but the symbolism is important.

* PantyShot: Suzy gets one when she climbs into the tent because Sam upsets her for laughing at her showing him the book "Dealing With A Troubled Child". Likely unintentional.

Added DiffLines:

* ElectricLove: When Sam and Suzy share their [[spoiler:supposed]] LastKiss in ''Film/MoonriseKingdom'', this happens due to the former being struck by lightning earlier.

Added DiffLines:

* HeroesWantRedheads: Sam loves Suzy, though the fact she has red hair appears to just be a coincidence.


* LeaningOnTheFourthWall: When Suzy is reading a book to Sam at [[InsistentTerminology Mile 3.25 Tidal Inlet]], the scene cuts after she says "Part 2." This is at roughly the halfway point and the following scene marks a major shift in the plot. In essence she acted as a TitleCard.

* ShoutOut: An obvious reference to The Shawshank Redemption when Sam escapes his tent at the start of the film (using an incredibly thin paper material to cover up a hole in a wall), and a more subtle visual allusion to the original Star Wars [[spoiler:during the climax, when Sam and Suzy sidle around the church tower]]. Also, remember that [[Film/DieHard other movie]] where Bruce Willis had to tie a rope to himself to keep from falling from a great height?

* {{Homage}}: This movie can be considered Creator/WesAnderson's homage to the UsefulNote/FrenchNewWave movement. In a shoutout, Sam and Suzy listen to French songs after their runaway.
