* DeathByAdaptation: [[spoiler:Clarion, who is Villefort's father]]. It was something of a running gag in Dumas's novel that he was virtually indestructible.

** In the novels, Villefort is ashamed for sending Dantes to prison in order to secure his ambitions. His guilt over this (as well as some of his other crimes) eventually breaks him. The film version has no such remorse and even [[spoiler:kills his own father]].

Added DiffLines:

* {{Flynning}}: PlayedWith. Most of the sword fighting in the movie is straight-forward Flynning, but the climactic duel between Edmond and Fernand shows Edmond using some legitimate unarmed defenses, like batting away Fernand's sword with his gloved hands, and blocking a strike with his arm (which shows, accurately, how useless rapiers are for slashing).

* BeardnessProtectionProgram: The Count trims his prison beard as part of his noble disguise. Noteworthy because of how effective it is. Upon returning to exact his revenge, Dantes is able to fool Villefort (who admittedly only met him once), his longtime employer Morrell and his lifelong friend Mondego. Only [[spoiler:Mercedes]] recognizes him. Mondego actually doesn't recognize him til he shaves.

Added DiffLines:

* BondVillainStupidity: Fernand and Villefort's frame up would likely have gone perfectly if they had just had Edmond executed as stated rather than thrown in prison for the rest of his life. This was already a VillainBall in the novel, but the film escalates it into ForTheEvulz levels, since the prison here is implied to be little more than a corrupt torture chamber they and other corrupt aristocrats dump their scapegoats so they can suffer.
