* ShipTease: There's a bit of this between Percy and Brenda to an extent.

Added DiffLines:

* BaitAndSwitchComment: Positive example;
-->'''Stonekeeper:''' Migo, you will never be the gong-ringer.\\

Added DiffLines:

** Meechee, the daughter of the Stonekeeper who so claims there are no smallfoot (or a world below the clouds), is head of S.E.S. who strive to prove the smallfoot exist.


* GettingCrapPastTheRadar: Done with literal crap as the Yetis discover, to their horror, what the "Scroll of Invisible Wisdom" is actually used for.

Added DiffLines:

* BearsAreBadNews: Played with. While trapped in a cave with Migo, Percy encounters a gigantic and aggressive bear. We later see from Migo's POV that the bear is just pissed about her family being woken.


* CrushBlush: Migo blushes when Meechee congratulates him for getting his very first gong ringer helmet. Later, when Migo is about to be lowered down the mountain on a rope strapped to a harness, Meechee makes him feel better by saying, ‘You’re gonna to do great.” Then Migo blushes again and asks her, ‘Yeah? You really think so?’

* BigfootSasquatchAndYeti: The stars of the film are Himalayan Yetis, envisioned here as tall, shaggy, ape-like hominids/humans with bodies and faces completely covered in fur and small to medium sized horns on their heads.

* AnimalTalk: The yetis' language sounds like low growling to humans, while human speak sounds like high-pitched gibberish to yetis. At one point, Migo is holding a conversation with a female Himalayan brown bear, which to Percy sounds like the two roaring at each other. Oddly for this trope bears don't talk.

** The Stonekeeper says the stones are there to protect the village and keep them safe. [[spoiler:Later on in the movie near the ending, he ends up throwing the entire stone robe at the Smallfoot humans who were chasing his people.]]
** The Cargo Plane that nearly crashed into Migo at the beginning of the movie is used again later on. [[spoiler:After Migo discovers land for the first time, the wrecked plane is accidentally used as a transportation device for Migo to travel faster to the Smallfoot village.]]
** The tranquilizer gun that Percy tried to shoot at Migo during their first encounter, instead of tranquilizing the Yeti it tranquilized Percy, well it’s [[spoiler:used again near the ending of the movie to tranquilize Migo the Yeti, and thankfully that time Percy didn’t get tranquilized by it again.]]

* CueTheSun: Yetis believe that ringing a gong awakes the great glowing snail that crawls across the sky, which is what they believe the sun to be. [[spoiler:Dorgle missing the gong one morning and seeing the sun rise regardless sends him into an existential crisis.]]

* MistakenForAnImposter: Percy wants his producer/co-worker Brenda to dress in a yeti costume so he could film her attacking him as a way to boost his show's ratings. When Brenda soon abandons him with the costume, Percy goes after her... only to run into Migo. Thinking Migo is Brenda in the yeti costume at first, he plays along, until he sees the real Brenda driving away on a snow mobile and realizes he's facing a real breathing yeti.
* MyGodWhatHaveIDone: Stonekeeper has this reaction when [[spoiler:Meechee takes Percy back to his town on her own after having Migo lie to the village]].
** Earlier, [[spoiler: Migo has this reaction after lying to the whole village that Percy was, in fact, a rare type of yak, and calling Gwangi straight up crazy for thinking the stones are wrong and that there’s a machine down in the mountains that Stonekeeper is hiding, therefore costing him his friendship with the S.E.S]].
* NoAntagonist: The closest thing the film has to a villain is [[spoiler:the Stonekeeper, a WellIntentionedExtremist who is only looking to keep his people safe from the dangerous Smallfeet, and by the end of the film has a HeelRealization. The policemen going after the yetis in the climax are also just doing what they were trained to do, protect civilians from what appears to them to be a threat]].
