* AdaptationalWimp: In the book, he's a hulking bruiser who kills apes with his bare hands. In the film, he's described as an outstanding tracker, but his physical abilities are never mentioned, and he has a normal build.



* VillainousFriendship: Type I with Count Rugen. Jerks though they might be, they're pretty genuinely friendly, being family and all.

to:

* VillainousCrush: Subverted. While he does acknowledge Buttercup's great beauty, he only plans to marry her so that he can fulfill his dynastic obligations and get an ego boost from having snagged an ''extremely'' attractive woman. [[spoiler:Subverted even further when it's revealed that he plans to have her killed and frame Guilder for it so he can have an excuse to go to war]].
* VillainousFriendship: Type I with Count Rugen. Jerks though they might be, they're pretty genuinely friendly, being (possible) family and all.

Added DiffLines:

* ExactlyWhatIAimedAt: He deliberately throws his first rock ahead of Wesley (with enough force to shatter it even) for two reasons: 1) to reveal himself and offer the option to LetsFightLikeGentlemen and 2) to show Wesley he's fast and strong enough with a rock that if he really wanted to kill him, [[IfIWantedYouDead he could easily end the fight in an instant]].


Added DiffLines:

* IfIWantedYouDead: Tells Wesley he "didn't have to miss" his sneak attack if he really wanted him dead, and Wesley believes him after seeing how that sizeable rock ''shattered to pieces'' on impact.

* GoodIsNotNice: Thanks to his perceived abandonment by Buttercup. Even after he finds out he was wrong, he's on the bitter and snarky side.
