* CompleteMonster: [[YouDirtyRat Boticelli Remorso]] is the cruel leader of the lower rat world. Believing the only true meaning of life is [[{{Sadist}} other people's suffering]], he forces innocent mice, such as the protagonist, Despereaux, into incredibly one-sided [[GladiatorGames gladiator-like games]] in a Colosseum, pitting them against a gigantic cat where the only outcome is being eaten and dying in front of a crowd of bloodthirsty rats. He despises Princess Pea for no apparent reason, and as such orders his hundreds of rats to eat her, trample her and cause her great pain. Boticelli's evil is further cemented by the skulls and bones littered throughout Ratworld.

* BigLippedAlligatorMoment: Boldo the MAN MADE OF FRUIT? Although it's not technically a moment, he could be a BLAM character. WTH?
** Judging from the way he appears, Boldo could well be a ghost whose particular gimmick involves "possessing" food.
** Magical Soup Genie, actually. The DVD says so, with the Build-a-Boldo game.

Magical Soup Genie, actually. The DVD says so, a man made out of fruit who suddenly appears out of nowhere once the chef starts making soup again. You'd assume he's imaginary, but nope - he's an actual, physical being who directly interacts with other characters, dies, and is never mentioned again. His entire existence fits the Build-a-Boldo game.points perfectly: a character who is weird by the film's standards, who comes out of nowhere, and dies shortly after, never being mentioned again.

* MagnificentBastard: Roscuro used to be a rat living in a ship, accidentally causing the death of the Queen of Dor due to his imprudence and causing Dor to become a gloomy place. Taken by the tyrannical Boticelli Remorso, Roscuro becomes his servant, helping him in the oppression of the other rats of the rat world with guilt, even helping Despereaux due to their mutual curiosity for the outside world. Intending to atone for his actions, Roscuro tries to apologize to Princess Pea but is harshly rejected. Resenting that, Roscuro manipulates the naive Miggery "Mig" Sow to kidnap the Princess by faking kindness before locking her in a room. Realizing his own awfulness after seeing Pea's despair, Roscuro betrays Boticelli and dooms him to his death, apologizing for his actions and returning to his life at sea after Dor returns to its former radiance.

* DeconReconSwitch: At several points in the book, the author points out how ridiculous love is, how contradictory forgiveness seems, and how foolish courage appears to be, but she always turns right around and says that even so, they are powerful forces and often even necessary to the world.
