* {{Woolseyism}}: While some Finnish translations just directly translate the "May contain nuts" joke as it still works in Finnish, some (such as the one ''Creator/{{Netflix}}'' uses) instead go with "Ei täysin munaton", which not only still uses the food label theme, it takes the joke even further and even adds extra meaning to it. [[labelnote:Explanation]]"Muna" is Finnish for egg, but is also slang for male genitalia. A direct translation back to english would be "[[CrouchingMoronHiddenBadass Not entirely dickless]]"[[/labelnote]]

* AccidentalInnuendo: "The golden carrot belongs in the Were-Rabbit!"


* FunnyAneurysmMoment: The morning after the first were-rabbit attack, Constable Mackintosh attributes the incident to arson, then adds "someone [[IncrediblyLamePun arsin']] around!" This becomes less funny when you realise that the Aardman Animations warehouse burnt down in October 2005, on the day after this film premiered, no less. [[note]]Thankfully it wasn't arson, just an electrical fault.[[/note]]

* ToughActToFollow: Though not universally beloved, most Wallace and Gromit fans will agree that this is where the franchise peeked. ''WesternAnimation/AMatterOfLoafAndDeath'' is widely agreed to be the weakest installment and the much smaller installments since then have only had limited success in it's native England, moreso since Peter Sallis was replaced at the voice of Wallace. The same argued for Aardman's proceeding feature films in general, as all of them have been {{acclaimed flop}}s at best and [[BoxOfficeBomb regular flops]] at worst.

* NightmareFuel:
** Both transformation scenes. The second one especially, where Gromit is pinned against the door as [[spoiler:Wallace is transforming and desperately begging him to help him.]]
** The Were-Rabbit's silhouette ominously dissipating in the mist after attacking Growbag's garden.
** The illustration of the Were-Rabbit from the Vicar's Book of Monsters is pretty unsettling.
** The stakeout scene is appropriately ominous. It's eerily quiet, with almost no music or sound. Then, after Gromit tries getting Wallace to come back to the car by honking from him, looking down the tunnel that Wallace walked through, there's a FreezeFrameBonus when he gets back in... but the shadow of his ears (or rather, something ''else's'' ears) remain.
