How was Cody losing foreshadowed?

  • Cody won the race against Lani underground, but he took the wrong path and ended up in a pile of poop, which is what the children penguins called Tank. A trashcan full of poop. This not only shows how empty winning can be with the wrong attitude but equates Tank and Cody as both losers. In order to really win, Cody needs a change in attitude.
  • The children penguins said you never know what might happen to a trophy, but friends are forever. Cody’s motivation for losing is his friendship with Joe. Cody loses to keep Joe safe.
  • Geek/Big Z came back to give Cody the necklace while Cody was sitting on the tree that became his surfboard. Cody said it was cool of Geek to come back. And at the end of the contest, while Cody and Geek are sitting on BigZ’s old board, Cody says it again.
  • At the beginning of the film, Cody said one day he would be just like Big Z. And now he is. Both lost. Both lost on purpose. Both let someone else win. Both now surf for the fun of it.
  • Bookend Foreshadowing: Cody’s brother called him a loser at the very beginning, and at the end, Big Z calls him a loser. The difference is now Cody is okay with losing.
