* {{Lolicon}}: In the anime, everybody starting with Albert thinks that [[spoiler: Haydée is the Count's mistress]], which it is strongly implied ''isn't'' the case (especially since [[spoiler: the fact that the Count's body is as cold as a corpse's and that part of his skin and muscles show his internal organs makes him unable to get intimate with anyone in the first place]]). This also changes the ending of the novel, in which [[spoiler: the Count leaves with Haydée to live happily ever after as a cool couple even though he explicitly views her as his adopted daughter.]]

Added DiffLines:

* TruerToTheText: Despite the [[RecycledInSpace sci-fi setting]], this is thematically the closest to Dumas' story than any other modern interpretation. While most modern takes on the story paint it as an adventure tale with the Count as an antihero who's justified in his actions, this show presents the count squarely as a villain with a FreudianExcuse, calling to light how his revenge overreached "justifiable" by [[MoralEventHorizon utterly destroying the lives of his enemies' children and their friends]].
** The original Dumas text notes that Edmond, as The Count, bears a resemblance to [[TheVampyre Lord Ruthven]]. The anime, in accordance, makes him a literal [[RecycledInSpace Space Vampire]].

* TransformationTrauma: Boy, does [[spoiler: the Count's transformation into Gankutsuou]] in the anime look (and ''sound'') painful. In the manga, [[spoiler: his first transformation in prison]] is even worse, as it involves [[spoiler: violent hallucinations, mangling, [[FreudWasRight rape metaphors]], and of ''course'' a demonic entity]]. His look of utter "What the hell was this!?" when he looks at his hands in the aftermath says it all, really.

* {{Badass}}: The Count, Fernand, Bertuccio, and Baptistin show their badassery in one way or another. Maximilien also shows his rank isn't just for show.

* BlondGuysAreEvil: Two out of the three prominent blond males are wicked, wicked men. (On the other hand, the third is consistently one of the nicest characters in the whole series.)

Added DiffLines:

* IDoNotDrinkWine: In an indirect homage to the TropeNamer, the vampiric Count does not consume food or drink for sustenance. Rather, he takes medication, which is a direct homage to the original Count.

Added DiffLines:

* SinsOfOurFathers: Another major theme in the series. While the parents who wronged the Count are selfish, greedy, or just outright evil (with a few exceptions) and might deserve their punishment, their children suffer just as much despite being good, if naive people merely because they're related to their parents.

** Eugenie whose engagement to Albert is cut off just as they begin to be honest with their feelings. [[spoiler: Luckily they share a BigDamnKiss when Albert helps her run away to New York to realize her dreams and are reunited in the DistantFinale.]]

* HotShounenMom: Mercedes, who is drop dead gorgeous for being in her forties.



* RedemptionEqualsDeath: [[spoiler:For both the Count and Morcerf. The former fought off Gankutsuou so he could die as Edmond Dantes instead of the Count. The latter told Albert to always look to the future before taking his own life due to the crushing weight of his own crimes.]]
