  • Red Shirt: The soldiers who attempt to stop the mice and then there's all the mice soldiers, and finally all the generic fruit and vegetables (broccoli, oranges, asparagus, pears, etc, etc.)
  • Royals Who Actually Do Something: The Nutcracker prince of course.
  • Save the Villain: After all he trouble he caused her, Marie still saves the mouse king from drowning, which convinces him to pull a Heel–Face Turn.
