!! ''Vincent'' contains examples of:
* ActorRoleConfusion: When Vincent says he wants to be like Vincent Price, he really means he wants to be like the characters Vincent Price plays in his horror movies. Justified by Vincent being seven years old, and likely unable to distinguish between Vincent Price and his characters. Obviously, the real Vincent Price was most likely just another ordinary person when not acting.
* ArtificialZombie: Vincent tries to make Abercrombie, his dog, into one of these.
* BuriedAlive: Happens to "Vincent Price"'s wife.
* AuthorAvatar: Vincent looks a lot like Creator/TimBurton, especially when in Creator/VincentPrice mode.
* CreepyChild: Vincent. Definitely. (At least when he's in Vincent Price mode - otherwise, he's sweet and nice. Then again, the fact that he wants to be like Vincent Price in the first place is pretty creepy anyway.)
* TheFaceless: Vincent's aunt and mother, of the "only shown from the neck down" variety.
* LarynxDissonance: When Vincent Price is narrating Vincent's mother's dialogue, he basically just continues using his normal voice. His voice does increase in pitch very slightly, but it's almost imperceptible.
* NoNameGiven: Vincent and his dog Abercrombie are the only named characters in the short. Vincent's sister, aunt and mother also appear or are mentioned, as well as "Vincent Price's" wife, but are never given actual names.
* SanitySlippage: Vincent starts going through this around the second half of the film. It's implied he's deluded himself into thinking he really is Creator/VincentPrice, or at least his imagination of Creator/VincentPrice.

** ''Go Jane Go'' is a reference to the children's book ''Go, Dog. Go!'' by P. D. Eastman.
** Vincent making his dog into an ArtificialZombie is a reference to ''{{Literature/Frankenstein}}'', as well as {{Foreshadowing}} to Tim Burton's next short film, ''Frankenweenie''.
* WaxMuseumMorgue: Vincent has one of these (in his imagination, at least) and imagines putting his aunt in it.
