* InstantExpert: The creature is a blank slate... essentially a newborn but with motor skills. He learns to speak and read French fluently in less than a year of watching a family teach a foreigner. After just a few months he's already good enough to read ''Main/ParadiseLost!''

Added DiffLines:

* AdaptationalIntelligence: Inverted. While unable to speak upon his birth, the creature soon becomes eloquent and intelligent in the original novel. The various film adaptations often keep him in the brainless stage and never moving on, to the point he's more well-known for being a lumbering brute who barely understands speech.
