* EasilyEmbarrassedYoungster: The sister starts out so easily-embarrassed that Paddington describes her as having a "serious condition called embarrassment". Later, she becomes less easily embarrassed.


* AdaptationalJerkass: Mr. Brown is less nice to Paddington in this version, but in time he warms up to him. Specifically, while in the original stories Mr. Brown is a bit stuffy and reserved, he is nevertheless generally kind and welcoming to Paddington; in the film, however, he views him almost as an existential threat to his family and can barely wait to be rid of him.

* VileVillainSaccharineShow: A nice kiddie film about a bear from Peru trying to be accepted by his adoptive family in Britain... with a villainous taxidermist that wants to turn him into a stuffed animal for her collection and will not let anything stop her, which includes attacking security guards, ''torturing people'' and trying to ''kill'' several humans (including said adoptive family) that get in her way. Understandably, at least one [[http://www.theguardian.com/film/2014/nov/10/kids-films-villains-paddington film critic]] felt he had good reason to complain about why film versions of gentle kids' stories always seem to introduce a murderous villain to [[BigDamnMovie make the story "bigger"]]. Millicent was even going to have several knife throwing moments but they were deemed "too intense" for a family film.
