* FragileSpeedster: He's the fastest digger Camp Green Lake has ever had aside from Zero… for about 15 minutes. Then he loses his strength and grows too tired to dig.

* AintTooProudToBeg: After the camp staff has been arrested and Stanley and [[spoiler:Hector, a.k.a. "Zero]] starts to leave, she begs Stanley to let her see what's in the treasure chest. Chances are she wanted to know what else she lost and what she was digging up in the first place.

%%* {{Jerkass}}

to:

%%* {{Jerkass}}* {{Jerkass}}: A smug, entitled and very unpleasant person all around.



* PlotTriggeringDeath: If the townspeople hadn't killed him, not only would there be no drought, but Kate never would've become an outlaw, stolen Trout's treasure, and buried it somewhere in the desert. That means that without Sam's death, Camp Green Lake wouldn't even ''exist''.

Added DiffLines:

* VillainBall: Assuming that she owns the land of Camp Green Lake, which seems to be the case, she could have avoided all of this by hiring a bunch of contractors to dig up the treasure for her, and then she would no doubt have gotten away with it. She just hates kids that much, and [[HoistByHisOwnPetard it turns out to be her downfall]].

Added DiffLines:

* AdaptationalVillainy: {{Downplayed}}. The only difference in his actions between the book and film is that in the film, he doesn't even ''pretend'' to be a good person.


Added DiffLines:

* AsLongAsItSoundsForeign: His name would fit far better on an American of Eastern European descent than an actual Eastern European.

to:

* CanonForeignerCanonForeigner: Is the only member of Elya's family line not to be mentioned in the book, and might not even be alive in that continuity, considering that his father met his mother 110 years before the present.

* {{Schoolmarm}}
* StarCrossedLovers: With Sam.

to:

* {{Schoolmarm}}
{{Schoolmarm}}: Back in her days as a teacher. She taught children of all ages, as well as adults.
* StarCrossedLovers: With Sam. She's a white woman, he's a black man... in the 1880s.



* NiceGuy
* StarCrossedLovers: With Kate.

to:

* NiceGuy
NiceGuy: He's friendly and considerate, and has no problem fixing everything in Kate's schoolhouse -- though that may just be so he can be around her. Either way, it's not hard to see why she fell for him.
* PlotTriggeringDeath: If the townspeople hadn't killed him, not only would there be no drought, but Kate never would've become an outlaw, stolen Trout's treasure, and buried it somewhere in the desert. That means that without Sam's death, Camp Green Lake wouldn't even ''exist''.
* StarCrossedLovers: With Kate. In the 1880s, a relationship between a black man and a white woman, no matter how loving, spelled "disaster" by default for both parties. And ''hoo boy'' does it spell disaster for Kate and Sam.



* HairTriggerTemper

to:

* HairTriggerTemperHairTriggerTemper: There's really no telling what could make one mad enough to get it to bite you.

* CloudCuckooLander: He has frizzy hair and a long neck, reads an old TV guide like he's reading it for the first time every time, watches the broken TV in the Wreck Room, and always knows what the time and date is.
