* TookALevelInBadass: Fronsac after [[spoiler: Mani is killed]]. Or at least, it seems that way from the point of the view of the rest of the characters, since up until then Fronsac had been content to let Mani handle badass duty. It turns out he was just as Badass as Mani all along, [[UpToEleven if not more so]], and when properly motivated he [[RoaringRampageOfRevenge plows a path of utter destruction]] that makes a viewer wonder why he even kept Mani around at all.

However, in the deleted scenes, the first fight segment (Mani vs the villagers with staffs), Fronsac tags in later, and finally the two fight together.

* DeadpanSnarker: one of the first thing's we're told about Fronsac is that he's "a wit," which he lives up to especially when flirting with Marianne (who herself can give as well as she gets).



* {{Werewolf}}: Not really, but the Gevadaun myth is so often associated with werewolves that the movie must at least play with this trope in passing.

* BittersweetEnding: [[spoiler:The villains of the piece are killed and their plot is thwarted, but the heroes don't fare much better. Mani's dead; the much feared beast was just an innocent animal who was forced to slaughter people by its sadistic owner, and Fronsac has to MercyKill it; the Marquis d'Apcher - one of the few decent people in this whole thing - is recalling the story as he's about to be sent to the guillotine; and all he can do is hope that Fronsac and Marianne got their happily ever after. At least they seem to have got it.]]

Fronsac and Mani are quickly enlisted to hunt down the beast and study it. Along the way, they encounter a mysterious group of gypsies and a number of French aristocrats who may or may not be behind the beast's attacks. Vincent Cassel plays a one-armed hunting enthusiast who also takes an interest in the beast. Creator/MonicaBellucci also stars as a seductive Italian prostitute who is far more than she seems.

* TheQuietOne: Mani doesn't talk much; in fact he doesn't have a single line for the first half-hour or so, leaving it slightly ambiguous whether he actually speaks French. It's not clear if he does this deliberately so people will say things around him that they otherwise wouldn't of if he's just a man of few words by nature.

* EverybodyWasKungFuFighting: Fronsac and Mani use a French form of stick-fighting called ''Canne De Combat'' mixed with the martial art of savate, a French kicking style also used by the antagonists. However, because the action scenes are filmed in an Eastern style, many audience members could find 18th centry Frenchmen "kung fu fighting" to be strange. Mani's style is clearly based on Mark Dacascos's training in background in Wun Hop Kuen Do, and [[spoiler:Jean-François]]'s heavy swordfighting can be easily mistaken for {{kendo}}.
