- Alternate Character Interpretation: Reverend gave Lord Victor a golden bullet to kill the Were-Rabbit. He may not be so pure then.
- Ensemble Darkhorse: Shaun the Sheep from A Close Shave, to the point he got his own series in 2007. Shaun the Sheep in turn had its own Ensemble Darkhorse in the form of Timmy the lamb, who got his own kiddy series, Timmy Time, in 2009.
- Germans Love David Hasselhoff: The series is quite popular with the French, who enjoy the quirky British humour.
- Growing the Beard: A Grand Day Out isn't necessarily bad, but it's far more Surreal than the later episodes, Wallace's only invention is the rocket, and the bad guy is a... living oven. With The Wrong Trousers, Wallace became far more of a tinkerer, Gromit became the archetypal Silent Snarker and the series received a massive Animation Bump.
- Moral Event Horizon: During his malfunctioning, Preston attempts to turn Wendolene and the sheep into DOG MEAT!!! Surely that qualifies. Not to mention him sentencing Gromit to life in the slammer.
- Lord Victor Quartermaine is willing to kill the Were-Rabbit (even though he knows it's really Wallace) just so he can marry Tottington for her fortune.
- Nightmare Fuel: Piella is a surprisingly terrifying villain, due in part to being a serial killer.
- So is Preston, even before it becomes apparent that he's actually a killer robot. Though unlike Piella, he actually has a Freudian Excuse.
- Tear Jerker: When Gromit runs away from home in Wrong Trousers and when Gromit cries over Wallace's apparently dead body in 'Were-Rabbit.
- Another example is in "A Close Shave." In the last newspaper with the headline of Gromit going to jail for life that Wallace and Shaun are reading, both have tears in their eyes, as do several other sheep reading with Wallace and Shaun, as Wallace says, "Oh, Gromit," before he and the sheep look at a portrait of the two together.
- The Woobie: Gromit, particularly in Wrong Trousers. Fluffles also qualifies up until the end of Loaf and Death.
- Fluffles is probably the most Woobie character in the franchise. Piella hit her and you could literally hear her yelping in pain! It is also vaguely implied that she has suffered this abuse for quite a while
- "Oh Gromit, I don't wanna be a giant rabbit!!"
- Twitch, the scared, frightened pup in Muzzled!
- "The Cooker" from A Grand Day Out, the Designated Villain that just wanted to get to Earth and ski in it's mountains. Even though he did get the ski run he always wanted that loose change likely isn't going to last very long.
- Wallace at the end of A Close Shave. After everything that they had gone through up to that point to earn their happy ending, Wallace finds out that Wendolene is allergic to cheese and can't stand it at all.
