- Hilarious in Hindsight: Let's see, the Big Bad starting to make some island paradise into a frozen arctic wasteland. Why does it sound oddly familiar?
- Memetic Mutation:
- "Angry Birds: Tropical Freeze" is starting to pick up steam due to the similarities between the movie and Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze, primarily their ice motifs.
- With its current 74% rating on Rotten Tomatoes, a lot of moviegoers had a field day that the sequel to the heavily divisive Angry Birds Movie would end up becoming the highest rated video game movie of all time. It appears so as it manages to surpass the 68% rating of Detective Pikachu!
- Mexicans Love Speedy Gonzales: The Latin American translation has gotten plenty of support in Costa Rica thanks to two of the voice actors (Jorge Vindas and Rafa Perez) being Costa Rican.
- Rewatch Bonus: Zeta is notably nicer towards Debbie than her other minions, and Debbie is by far Zeta's most vocal supporter in her plan. Their affectionate interactions throughout the film take on a new meaning after The Reveal that Debbie is Zeta's daughter.
- Surprisingly Improved Sequel: Early reviews say that the sequel is a notable improvement over its predecessor with Rotten Tomatoes rating it roundabout 74% compared to the 44% the first one has. Particular praise has been given to the film's humour and Leslie Jones' performance as Zeta. Having Thurop Van Orman of The Marvelous Misadventures of Flapjack fame on board may have helped.
- Video-Game Movies Suck: For the very first time in film history, completely and absolutely averted. While Pokémon Detective Pikachu was the first video game film to achieve at least mixed-to-positive reception, this one here is perhaps the first full-on positively received video game film to date, and more or less the first "downright great" video game film as opposed to simply "good".note
- Win the Crowd: Many people who didn't think Angry Birds deserved to have movies were converted by the well-received trailer, showcasing the intriguing concept of an Enemy Mine between birds and pigs. Went even further after the film got positive reviews on Rotten Tomatoes.
