* PortalBook: Contains a number of pirate-related weaponry within his pages.



-->'''Fantasy:''' (regarding Adventure) You know that short story?
-->'''Richard:''' Yeah, he's Adventure.
-->'''Fantasy:''' Honey, that's what they all say.
-->'''Adventure:''' I heard that! I'll have you know I'm a classic!
-->'''Fantasy:''' Mmm-hmmm...a classic misprint!

to:

%%* AnimateInanimateObject
%%* CowardlyLion
* AnimateInanimateObject: A talking book.
* ChekhovsGunman: Horror discovers he can float after the group is separated by Moby Dick.
* CowardlyLion / LovableCoward: Similar to Richard, he is easily frightened despite coming from the horror section of the library, but becomes braver over time.
* CuteMonster: In the eyes of Fantasy.
* DynamicEntry: Swings into battle like Tarzan and knocks out several pirates upon landing.
* EarnYourHappyEnding: All he wants is to be checked out and be happy.
* FallingIntoHisArms: A subverted version. Horror is knocked out of a bell tower and lands in Richard's arms.
* FriendToAllLivingThings: Horror is the most gentle of characters compared to the hot-headed Adventure and Fantasy, and wouldn't hurt a fly.
* TheGrotesque: Horror is described as a "hunchbook" and is based on [[Literature/TheHunchbackOfNotreDame Quasimodo]]. He has a misshapen spine and torn features. Also has elements of Igor, referring to Richard as his "master".
* IJustWantToHaveFriends: Too friendly and kind for the horror section, Horror just wants to have friends and a better existence.
* TheKlutz: A bit clumsy and accident prone at times. He accidentally knocks Fantasy's wand out of her hand and it is eaten by the dragon, causing it to gain extra firepower and fry the flying carpet they are on.
* SensitiveGuyAndManlyMan: The relationship between Horror and Adventure. Adventure is mostly mean and insulting towards Horror, and angrily chews out Horror when he comments that he could be like him (but mostly because his pride was damaged because Fantasy and Horror rescued Richard from the pirates). The two get along better after Adventure mistakes Horror for being dead.
* TechnicallyASmile: Gives a lopsided smile upon meeting Richard.
-->'''Fantasy:''' Look, he's smiling.
-->''(Horror gives a weird smile)''
-->'''Richard:''' That's a smile?



The first literary character met in the film. According to the source material, Jekyll has created a potion (which here looks like a cocktail martini) [[EnemyWithout to separate one's dark side from their body]]. Things didn't go as planned and his dark side took over as Mr. Hyde.

* NightmareFace: Mr. Hyde's is one to remember.
* PainfulTransformation: The transformation is brief but pretty terrifying. Dr. Jekyll screams in agony as his body reacts to his potion, then he undergoes some body horror before becoming Mr. Hyde.
