* ArcWelding : Planned from the beginning and done well. After several seemingly isolated episodes an obvious story arc begins and elements introduced in previous episodes become vital to it. It culminates in [[spoiler: finding a treasure that was metioned in a throwaway line in the first episode.]]

Added DiffLines:

* RealAfterAll: In "The Wisdom Toad," there's supposedly a toad called the Wisdom Toad that supposedly knows the right answer to everything. However, it turns out that says "Yep" every time a question is posed of it. When Crocodylus tries to use it to trick the crocodiles into making him leader, Badou discovers a whole pond of these toads and finds that some of them say "Yep" and some "Nope." He therefore pulls a swap, swapping the supposed "Wisdom Toad" for one of the ones that says "Nope," so that when Crocodylus asks it if he should be leader, this is what it says. Afterwards, he shows the pond of frogs to the true crocodile leader and everyone present agrees that it was never a good idea to let a toad choose the leader. Everyone clears out except for Badou and Babar, and Badou asks Babar if he thinks it's possible that there could be a ''real'' Wisdom Toad. A voice calls out from the pond: "Maybe."


* HeinousHyena: Hoot is a notable aversion of this trope. While she is a practical joker, she always means well and is generally friendly. She also refreshingly averts UnpleasantAnimalCounterpart by being friends with Dandi Andi and his lionesses.

* PutOnABus: Arthur, Alexander, Flora, Isabelle, Pompadour, Troopadour, Victor, Basil and Madame (Justified that she was very elderly when Babar was a kid and likely passed away since, Cornelius on the other hand has the excuse that Elephants live much longer than humans). In the premiere of the fifth season, Badou tells Pom and Celeste to "say hello to Aunt Flora and Aunt Isabelle" when they go on a trip.

* AdaptationalVillainy: Lady Rataxes is a lot more selfish and unlikeable in this series. Conversely, Rataxes himself is depicted as dimmer and far less of a threat than in the previous series.

* TaughtByExperience: [[DiscussedTrope Discussed]] in "Badou's Best Adventure." Badou is feeling sad and Babar asks why.

Babar explains that the two of them are good adventurers because they've adventured for so long and made a lot of mistakes, which they've learned from.
