- Accidental Aesop: Family is the most important thing; never pursue your dreams and never take risks.
- Anticlimax Boss: The new dogcatcher is rather easily dispatched by Angel before Tramp and Scamp can fight him properly. Truth be told, the true climax was pretty much Tramp's battle against Reggie in the cage.
- Contested Sequel: This movie has decent animation, catchy songs, and yes Chazz Palminteri. It was also helped by having a good deal of source material to draw from. That being said, it does have its flaws where some people might see the original as better. This includes introducing a major character as the best friend/close sibling/arch enemy of a major character in the original movie, who was apparently always there...it's just nobody ever bothered to mention they existed in any way, Lady being Demoted to Extra, Scamp himself for not being seen as very likeable to some, his siblings not getting a whole lot of screentime, or whether people like the original comics more than the movie.
- Do Not Do This Cool Thing: Much ado is made about the harsh and miserable life Scamp is leaving his family for, but apart from the threat of the dog catcher, the strays don't seem to have it too difficult. Tramp led an absolutely charmed existence of handouts and romantic flings before meeting Lady. Indeed, if Buster hadn't been such a colossal dirtbag, Scamp probably would have had the time of his life out there and maybe even gone on to see that "big hunk of world" Tramp spoke so glowingly of in the first movie.
- Fanon: Angel is Peg's daughter. They're both street dogs and they have a slight resemblance, namely their small size and fur colours.
- Foe Yay: Buster's fixation on Tramp, coupled with his hatred of Lady, absolutely smacks of this. Tramp flat out calls it jealousy.
- Launcher of a Thousand Ships: Scamp and Angel are quite popular in the Crossover Ship Fanvid community and have a tendency to get shipped with many other Disney (and non-Disney) animal characters.
- Moral Event Horizon: Buster crosses it by leaving Scamp at the mercy of the dogcatcher. With no collar. To get back at his dad.
- Memetic Molester: Buster has become one thanks to his Villainous Crush on Angel, who's just a puppy.
- Popular with Furries: Both Scamp and Angel have a lot of furry fans. Buster has his fans as well, to a lesser extent.
- Squick: Buster (the big bad) tries to win the affections of a Pomeranian named Angel... and so does Scamp. Now, Scamp's obviously a puppy, as is Angel, but Buster is an adult dog. And even if she were older, as a Pomeranian, she won't be getting very big....
- Villain Decay: While they weren't portrayed as evil, the dogcatchers in the first movie were still shown to be a serious threat to any street dog they came across. Here, the only dogcatcher we see onscreen is a bumbling fool doubling as a huge Butt-Monkey.
