* ToonPhysics: In contrast to the normal humans barring a few slapstick moments, Woody operates on cartoon physics - including [[MediumAwareness breaking the fourth wall several times]], defying gravity to walk along the walls and ceiling of his home, and SelfDuplication during his rap.
* VillainProtagonist: Both Woody and Lance (especially Woody) start off from the movie as this. Woody and Lance are initially hostile towards one another out of territorial dispute even though as Samantha points out, the forest is big enough for both of them, but seeing as Woody is the true victor in any fight that happens between the two, Lance starts to cave in and make amends with Woody.
