Added DiffLines:

* GodsNeedPrayerBadly: While not "gods" per se, the residents of the Land of the Dead require that the living either remember them or honor them by placing their pictures on their ofrendas. If this stops, then they suffer Final Death, and disappear from even the Land of the Dead.

Added DiffLines:

* EveryoneOwnsAMac: The "devil box" in the Land of the Dead customs office that Imelda smashes is a [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Macintosh_Classic Macintosh Classic]].


** [[YourMileageMayVary On the other hand]], the Riveras have some pretty strong Native American features (more so the more you go up in their family tree), while Ernesto de la Cruz appears to be of full or nearly full Spanish descent. They are all tanned and dark-haired still, though.

* LatinoIsBrown: Played straight. All the (living) characters have dark skin.[[note]]Ironically, this is averted with the movie's ''cast'' (both English and Spanish dubs); comprised almost entirely of Hispanic actors who, obviously, show the varied skin tones present in Latin American countries.[[/note]] Justified, as many Mexicans have at least some Native ancestry, especially in the state of Oaxaca where the film is set. This is implied with the Rivera family, where many female members wear traditional clothing.

* CessationOfExistence: There is an afterlife called the Land of the Dead, but it's not permanent. If the last of the dead's relatives [[RememberTheDead are no longer remembered]] in the Land of the Living, they shake violently and then the FinalDeath occurs as they [[ReducedToDust dissolve into dust]]. Just ask Chicharrón and Héctor.


** Benny and Manny are younger SingleMindedTwins brothers to a stern sister, like their great-great-grand-uncles Óscar and Felipe.

Added DiffLines:

* GenerationXerox:
** Miguel is rebellious, stubborn, and loves Coco and music, just like his great-great-grandfather.
** Elena is dominant, hates music, and uses her shoe as a weapon, just like her grandmother Imelda.
** Rosa is quiet, sarcastic, somewhat socially detached, thin, and wears glasses, like her great-aunt Victoria.
** Benny and Manny are younger SingleMindedTwins brothers to a stern sister, like their great-great-grand-uncles Óscar and Felipe.

Added DiffLines:

* CompletelyMissingThePoint: Ernesto de la Cruz missed the point of Héctor's songs. He sings "Remember Me" as a [[AnythingThatMoves frivolous]] [[TheCasanova romance]] song rather than a tender lullaby, and understands "The World is [[GratuitousSpanish Mi Familia]]" as an endorsement of career success over settling down and forming a family, rather than the other way around.

* FelonyMisdemeanor: The Rivera family react to seeing a Mariachi player offer to let Miguel play his guitar with the same horror and protective outrage as if he was street dealer offering the kid drugs, [[ComicalOverreacting and they chase him away just as ferociously]].

* NoCelebritiesWereHarmed: Ernesto de la Cruz bears more than a passing resemblance to Creator/PedroInfante. In fact Pedro himself appears as a skeleton in a blink and you miss cameo next to his partner Creator/JorgeNegrete, as Ernesto introduces Miguel to both during his party.

Added DiffLines:

** Director Lee Unkrich voices the "What did I miss?" guy from the Sunrise Spectacular, and co-director Adrian Molina voices the guy who said "Somebody stole de la Cruz's guitar!"


** PlayedForLaughs near the start of the film, when the Riveras catch Miguel talking to a Mariachi at Mariachi Square. They interrogate him to know "what did he offer" Miguel, and aggressively let him know that they "know your tricks," as though he were a child abductor offering candy, or a street peddler offering drugs.
** Exaggerated in the Spanish dub: The family goes ballistic after Miguel says that the mariachi wanted to "show [him] [[SomethingElseAlsoRises his guitar]]" and Miguel's father yells out a "Pervert!" (instead of "Shame on you!"). It doesn't help that "Mariachi" shares the two first syllables with a [[PaedoHunt nasty]] [[TooSmartForStrangers slur]] for [[DepravedHomosexual homosexuals]], so... imagine what Miguel's family scolding him for going to "the square of the mariachis" sounds like.
