* ResignationsNotAccepted: In the book, after Humperdinck warns him of a (nonexistent) plot by Guilder to murder Buttercup, he hands in his resignation after failing to find a shred of evidence. Because Humperdinck still needs Yellin (as shown above in the PuppetKing example), he does not accept his resignation and admits there is no plot and that he will murder Buttercup himself.

* PuppetKing: In the book, Humperdinck intends to make him ruler of Guilder after he conquers it, as he can't be in two different places at once, and he knows that Rugen wouldn't take the job, being obsessed as he was with the Machine.

* BadassBoast: He's given a rather impressive one in the book in lieu of the PlatoIsAMoron example in the movie.
--> '''Westley''': You are that smart?
--> '''Vizzini''': There are no words to contain all my wisdom. I am so cunning, crafty and clever, so filled with deceit, guile and chicanery, such a knave, so shrewd, cagey as well as calculating, as diabolical as I am vulpine, as tricky as I am untrustworthy...well, I told you there were not words invented yet to explain how great my brain is, but let me put it this way: the world is several million years old and several billion people have at one time or another trod upon it, but I, Vizzini the Sicilian, am, speaking with pure candor and modesty, the slickest, sleekest, sliest and wiliest fellow who has yet come down the pike.
