-->'''Gantu''': ''[confused]'' Uh, was that a rhetorical question?


* CallingMeALogarithm: As Gantu was leaving to break Hämsterviel out of jail, he complained about 625's way of making an egg salad:
-->'''625''': You're gonna miss my egg salad!
-->'''Gantu''': Not enough mayonnaise, and too much dill weed.
-->'''625''': What did you call me?!



* DisappearedDad: The movie makes a startling, out-of-left-field reveal about Mertle's backstory, and plays it for laughs:
-->'''Mertle:''' I bet your dog ran away from you, and I also bet he's never coming back.\\
'''Yuki:''' Just like Mertle's dad.\\
'''Mertle:''' Quiet, Yuki!

* AntagonistTitle: The first word of the full title.



* EarlyBirdCameo: Link (251) appeared in this film first before his episode debuted.[[note]]"Link" was first released on the ''Leroy & Stitch'' DVD, which came out four days after the film's premiere, and didn't air on television until a little over a month later on July 29, 2006.[[/note]]

Added DiffLines:

* NameAndName: This time, it's an antagonist's name taking one part of the title.


Added DiffLines:

* PunnyName: Leroy's name, which starts with "L" and has "o" as its fourth letter, plays off of Lilo's name in the title.


Added DiffLines:

* SecondaryCharacterTitle: To be honest, Stitch has more of a supporting role in this film than a leading role, and Leroy is only a secondary antagonist since Hämsterviel is still the main BigBad. If anything, a more accurate title for this movie would be "''Lilo & Reuben''".

Added DiffLines:

* BeingGoodSucks: Lilo deciding Stitch, Pleakley, and Jumba should leave Earth to pursue their dream jobs.


Added DiffLines:

* DespairEventHorizon: Lilo succumbs to despair after learning Hämsterviel has taken over the council and sent Stitch, Jumba, and Pleakley into a black hole. Reuben's speech and Gantu opening their cell, though, shake her out of it.


Added DiffLines:

* EasilyForgiven: After switching, Gantu is immediately accepted. Of course, he was never particularly evil to start with.
* EvilerThanThou: Gantu is more serious, but he still just sees this as a job to pay his bills. For all his quirks, Hämsterviel is openly vicious and vindictive.


Added DiffLines:

* FriendshipMoment: Gantu and Reuben saying "Aloha" to each other. Happens again when Gantu requests Reuben be made his galley officer.


Added DiffLines:

* IronicEcho: "That was a rhetorical question."


Added DiffLines:

* LeaningOnTheFourthWall: In the end, Lilo has ''everyone'' gather together for the last picture for her book.


Added DiffLines:

* UnwittingInstigatorOfDoom: 625's snark about partnerships early on is what gives Gantu the idea to dump him and break Hämsterviel out of prison.


* BrilliantButLazy: Reuben, who up until now has spent the series making sandwiches and wisecracking at Gantu, gets a CrowningMomentOfAwesome when he successfully repairs Gantu's crashed ship, something Gantu had been unable to do all series.

* ChekhovsArmoury: Lilo's departing gifts to Stitch, Pleakley and Jumba. Stitch's gift was a tiki necklace which [[spoiler:allowed Lilo to identify Leroy as an impostor because he wasn't wearing it]]. Next was a rock given to Pleakley that was used to [[spoiler:disrupt the event horizon of a black hole that he, Stitch and Jumba were hurtling into and allow them to escape]]. Finally there was the "Aloha ʻOe" record given to Jumba which he used to [[spoiler:create a secret mechanism in Leroy that made him shut down if he (or his clones) heard it. This ends up leading to both a [[CrowningMomentOfAwesome Crowning Moment]] and a CrowningMusicOfAwesome at the end where Stitch, Lilo, Reuben and a bunch of Stitch's cousins put on a concert to defeat the Leroy clone army at the end]].

* LawyerFriendlyCameo: The stadium the experiments are brought to is Aloha Stadium in Halawa, Hawaii (a suburb of Honolulu), but the stadium's name isn't mentioned. The only sign seen on the stadium is a hanging banner that says "Aloha Palooza", which appears to be the name of a concert event that was to be held there (as shown by how quickly Lilo, Stitch, Reuben, Jumba, and Pleakley set up their impromptu concert).



* LuckyCharmsTitle: The film's title is stylized on the DVD cover (seen on top) as ''Leroy Lilo & Stitch'' with Lilo's name struck-through (which we can't render in text here) and Leroy's name "written" over it. Ironically however, Lilo is arguably the protagonist in this film.

''[[InCaseYouForgotWhoWroteIt Disney's]] Leroy & Stitch'' is a 2006 animated television film and the GrandFinale film of ''WesternAnimation/LiloAndStitchTheSeries''. It is the fourth and last film in the ''Franchise/LiloAndStitch'' franchise, but ''not'' the franchise's last work; [[Anime/{{Stitch}} not by]] [[Animation/StitchAndAi a long shot]]. It is, however, the conclusion to the original Western-produced, Lilo-focused parts of the franchise, much to a number of fans' chagrin. It aired on Creator/DisneyChannel on June 23, 2006, aired on Creator/ToonDisney three days later, and was released to DVD the day after Toon Disney's broadcast.

** The day is saved through ThePowerOfRock and a reinterpreted pop song disabling a horde of mind-controlled villains dressed in a flamboyant costume with an electric guitar. Not unlike the climax of ''WesternAnimation/TheSpongebobSquarepantsMovie''.
