* AntiVillain: Unlike most versions of the tale, the Count's plots are shown without the filter of the story being told from his point of view, which means they're presented as the twisted, manipulative, and downright psychotic actions with no regard towards innocents caught in the wake. Then again, the three ''direct'' targets of his wrath ''[[KickTheSonOfABitch completely deserve it]]'', so you can't help but root for him when those exact people get their just-desserts.

Added DiffLines:

* AdaptationalVillainy: While most versions of the story show the Count in an entirely heroic light, and while he was arguably featured as heroic even in Dumas' novel, it's hard to deny that the literary Count is [[BlackAndGrayMorality morally ambiguous]] MagnificentBastard, given that his machinations ruin far more innocent lives than just those who wronged him. ''THIS'' version, however, shows as he would seem to those innocent bystanders... which is absolutely satanic.
