* AdaptationExplanationExtrication: Like in the graphic novels and animated series, Hilda is grounded, but the reason why is again changed. In the books, it is because Johanna found out Hilda helped sabotage the mechanical bellringers, and her grounding coincides with the Winter Festival.
* AdaptationalJerkass: Hilda is more of a JerkWithAHeartOfGold here than she's ever been. Alfur (who she takes a considerable amount of time to warm up to compared to the show) outright calls her a "big bully", and she acts confused when David and Frida refuse to talk to her after she drags them along for an adventure and into the clutches of the Bragga.

* PoliceAreUseless: In ''Hilda and the Nowhere Space'', Hilda discovers the Black Hound has a nest in the Great Forest and tries to tell the police where it is, but she is informed that the police already handed over the case to the Safety Patrol and is thus no longer interested. And the Safety Patrol canít act on her information since they have no authority outside Trolberg. Hilda is understandably quite frustrated.
