!!Kantos Kan
->'''Played By''': James Purefoy
The Jedwar of the Helluminatic navy who becomes one of Carter and Dejah's closest allies.

* TheCharmer: Downplayed. While it isn't presented outright, he manages to make his way to Carter's cell without drawing his weapons and smoothly talks his way past the guards. And when he and Carter crash into Dejah's bed chamber, his first instinct is to flirt with her handmaidens.
* DeadpanSnarker: He gets a few good ones every now and then.
* DemotedToExtra: In the novels, Kantos was one of Carter's best friends. Here, his screentime is limited to only a few, albeit entertaining, scenes.
* PluckyComicRelief: Him helping Carter escape certainly establishes this.
* UndyingLoyalty: To Tardos Mors, Dejah Thoris and the rest of the Helluminatic city.



* AGodAmI
* BaldOfEvil
* BigBad

to:

* AGodAmI
AGodAmI: Given that fact that he and the rest of the Thern supervise and manipulate the destruction of civilizations and planets, Matai feels a sense of superiority and power over beings such as Carter.
* BaldOfEvil
BaldOfEvil: He's got a bald head and is undeniably evil.
* BigBadBigBad: He and the Thern are the Catalysts of the conflict.



* TheChessmaster

to:

* TheChessmasterTheChessmaster: The Therns basically manipulate and supervise the wide-scale destruction of planets and civilizations, using Sab Than as an UnwittingPawn.

Added DiffLines:

* AdaptationalWimp: Thoris is significantly less political in the movie. It may not sound like much, but she was the original inspiration for [[StarWars Princess Leia]], and the book makes it clear that for all her attraction to Carter, she was not above manipulating him for the greater good of Barsoom.

* ActionGirl: A Thark female would be expected to be this, and Sola is rarely seen without her weapons, but her personality is such that she only fights when necessary.



* ProudWarriorRaceGirl: Played with. She clearly believes in the Thark ideals of courage and honor, but can't deal with her people's brutality.
