* ChekovsGun: The hot lead used to mend the bells that Quasimodo mentions early in the show becomes important during the finale, as he pours it on the guards who are coming to get him and Esmeralda.

* AdaptationalAttractiveness: It is difficult to know ''exactly'' how Victor Hugo pictured Quasimodo as we have only his words, but his monstrous description invites the reader to think of him as being as ugly and scary as they possibly can and then add some. In Animated Adaptations Quasimodo is portrayed as more UglyCute.

In Animated Adaptations Quasimodo is portrayed as more UglyCute. This is downplayed though, as Quasi is still shown as ugly to a degree.



* AdaptedOut: Gringoire, Jehan Frollo, Fleur-de-Lys, Sister Gudule, and the King of France are all absent from this version. Gringoire's role in the plot has been mostly given to Phoebus, so he's not really necessary, but the King is an odd omission; without him, Frollo seems to have dictatorial powers over Paris.

* EnthrallingSiren: What Frollo sees Esmerelda as - imagining that she cast a spell on him with her dancing.



* GoodBadGirl: Esmerelda is a seductress but she uses her sensuality to entertain, rather than to seduce. Frollo imagines her as a FemmeFatale but she is a much more kind-hearted person than that.



* TheGrotesque: Quasimodo won a prize for being ''the'' ugliest person in Paris.

* RaceLift: In the original novel Esmerelda was actually a white girl who was stolen by the Romani, and she was usually portrayed as white in adaptations. Here she is definitely Romani.

* TogetherInDeath: Done very subtly in the climax. After Quasimodo is left hanging off the Notre Dame balcony, Esmeralda tries to help him up to no avail. As Frollo towers over her ready to strike down with his sword, the look on Esmerala's face shows that although she's terrified, she would rather die alongside Quasi than let him fall to his death to save her own skin.

** The mention of 'strumpets' in "Topsy Turvy", which they probably only got away with because it's [[GetTheeToANunnery such an archaic word]]. Frollo calling the common crowd "licentious" (a somewhat archaic term for "sexually promiscuous") was probably allowed for the sane reason.
