Added DiffLines:

* IgnoringBySinging: Carl Fredricksen desperately tries to ignore Russel figuring out how to [[NatureTinkling go potty in the wilderness]] by putting his hands over his ears and singing.
-->'''Russel''' ''[offscreen]'': Mr. Fredricksen! Am I supposed to dig the hole before, or after?
-->'''Mr. Fredricksen''': [[{{Squick}} Uuugh]]! [[TooMuchInformation None of my concern]]!
-->'''Russel''' ''[offscreen]'': Oh, it's before!
-->'''Mr. Fredricksen''': BAH! ''[puts his hands over his ears]'' Lalalalalala--

Added DiffLines:

* SpannerInTheWorks: Dug's obliviousness ends up endangering the heroes in at least two separate occasions:
** When Carl, Russell and Kevin are taking the house to Paradise Falls, Dug receives a call from Alpha and sheepishly says he has taken the bird as a prisoner. This leads the pack to track them down, kidnap the two humans and lead them to Muntz' blimp, presumably to be executed.
** When Russell and Carl are transporting an injured Kevin to her babies, Dug gives away their location because he forgets (or doesn't know) that Muntz can track their position by monitoring his collar. This results in Kevin being captured by the mad old man, with Carl's house almost being destroyed in the process.

Added DiffLines:

* SmartJerkAndNiceMoron: Among Charles Muntz's battalion of servant dogs, Alpha the Doberman is a DrillSergeantNasty that leads them. Alpha tends to heap abuse on dimwitted but determined Dug. This mistreatment is a huge catalyst in Dug's HeelFaceTurn in siding with Carl, Russell and Kevin.

* ScoutOut: The Wilderness Explorers are an example of this, complete with MeritBadgesForEverything. Russell even manages to get a great bit of scouting done: helping the elderly, learning about natura, sticking up for the right thing etc.

* BloodierAndGorier: While not as extreme of as some examples of this trope, the fact that this film actually depicts blood no less than twice qualifies it for this trope in comparison to other movies from Disney and Pixar. The first instance of blood occurs towards the beginning of the movie when Carl accidentally hits the construction worker with his cane, causing a rather large splotch of blood to appear on his forehead. The second happens after Carl, Russell, Dug and Kevin escape from [[spoiler:Muntz's]] dogs; blood can be seen soaking through the bandage that Russell applies to Kevin's injured leg.

Added DiffLines:

* DreadZeppelin: [[spoiler:Charles Muntz's]] cold, grey, massive zeppelin contrasts with Carl's small, colorful balloon-propelled house. [[spoiler:Carl gets to keep the airship in the end, though]].


** Carl qualifies, given he outfitted his house with shower curtain sails and a steering system. Carl retrofitted his entire house into an airship in less than ''one night.'' He's better than Series/MacGyver!
