* PluckyComicRelief/ LaughablyEvil: In the musical, due to the fact that no other characters served this role in the book. Still creepy, though.

** Also averted, to a degree, in the 2012 film. While they still don't receive any formal punishment, they are last seen being beaten up and physically thrown out of the wedding for impersonating a Baron and Baroness.

* TragicHero: His is TheGreatestStoryNeverTold. Is implied no one's visited his grave in a long time. We could just hope his example is passed to Cosette and Marius.

Added DiffLines:

* BlueAndOrangeMorality: Marius seems to be under the impression that the existence of a life debt precludes the debtee from being involved in the persecution of any wrongdoing, past present or future, on the part of the debtor. Happens with his father's debt (passed onto him) to Thenardier, again when he considers Javert's death to be a murder (rather than the execution of a spy it was to all the other students) because he believed Javert's killer to be Valjean, whom Javert had saved once (unwittingly). Again when he finds out Valjean saved ''his'' life, which makes his previous negative opinions of the ex-convict evaporate instantaneously. At least he's consistent about it.

* NoNameGiven: Due to it being [[TheUnpronounceable difficult to pronounce]], Enjolras's name is actually never spoken in libretto during the entire musical, though beginning the ABC Cafe scene with an exclaimed "Enjolras!" has become a pretty regular ad-lib, nowadays.

--> '''Jean Valjean''': (on his deathbed) They are of silver, but to me they are gold, they are diamonds; they change candles which are placed in them into wax-tapers. I do not know whether the person who gave them to me is pleased with me yonder on high. I have done what I could.

What a splendid destiny for a nation to be the Empire of such an Emperor, when that nation is France and when it adds its own genius to the genius of that man! [...] To cause constellations of victories to flash forth at each instant from the zenith of the centuries, to make the French Empire a pendant to the Roman Empire, to be the great nation and to give birth to the grand army, to make its legions fly forth over all the earth, as a mountain sends out its eagles on all sides to conquer, to dominate, to strike with lightning, to be in Europe a sort of nation gilded through glory, to sound athwart the centuries a trumpet-blast of Titans, to conquer the world twice, by conquest and by dazzling, that is sublime; and what greater thing is there?\\

** However, on two occasions, once with Javert immediately after Fantines death, the second with Thernardier shortly after buying Cossette, he makes it VERY clear that if they make one more wrong move he will go to violence, and that it would be a very bad idea for them. Both back off.
* AnonymousBenefactor: One of M Madeleine's pastimes apparently involves breaking into other people's houses and leaving some money there. At some point, the citizens catch on, and it's no longer anonymous.
