* OhCrap: At the barracks, Lieutenant Andre hands D'Artagnan a list of casualties from the war. D'Artagnan's expression becomes one of horror as [[spoiler: he (presumably) sees Raoul's name on the list. He asks Andre if Athos knows...and then promptly sees his old comrade storming across the ground, armed to the teeth and with an expression that clearly screams he has murder in mind. Yeah D'Artagnan, he ''definitely'' knows]].

* PersonWithTheClothingPersonWithTheClothing: First Philippe, [[spoiler:then his brother]]. In fact, the clothing is powerful that when someone puts it on, he instantly becomes this trope.

** At no point is it made clear that the Jesuits are a religious order of priests and brothers, properly known as the Society of Jesus. Aramis, their head, identifies himself as the "General of the Order of Jesuits", while the correct term is "Superior General of the Society of Jesus". Besides Aramis, the other Jesuits in the film don't wear clerical clothing, so it makes them look like a cabal akin to the Assassins or Templars in ''Franchise/AssassinsCreed'' - especially since a Jesuit (or suspected Jesuit) in disguise tries to kill Louis. Far from being an underground and persecuted sect, the Jesuits were one of the most influential Christian groups in the Early Modern Period, running schools and universities. What's more, in real life Louis ''never had any problems'' with the Jesuits; he was actually influenced by them in the latter half of his reign, and he had a Jesuit confessor. He ''did,'' however, order the persecution of the Huguenots and Jansenists, both of which ''were'' persecuted theological movements.

While the Jesuits admittedly did face suppression in many parts of the world, this didn't happen until the ''eighteenth'' century.

* OneLiner: Too many of these, as the Nostalgia Chick points out in her review. However, it thankfully (and surprisingly) averts BondOneLiner.

* PunctuatedForEmphasis: Just about everything Athos says is this. Roundly mocked by the NostalgiaChick.

** Louis XIV really had [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Philippe_I,_Duke_of_Orl%C3%A9ans a brother named Philippe]], but that's where the similarity ends. Philippe wasn't Louis's twin brother and his life had never been a secret.

** There was an actual Man in the Iron Mask imprisoned in the Bastille. His identity has always been very much speculated on.

* RevisedEnding: The book was meant to contemplate the end of the Romantic era and was pretty much a DownerEnding: [[spoiler:Athos dies of grief over his son, Porthos dies when his strength gives out during the escape plan, the plan to substitute Philippe for Louis fails and ''results'' in Philippe going into the mask in prison (he'd simply been exiled before), D'Artagnon spends the rest of his life serving Louis and Aramis uses his political clout as a Jesuit to obtain pardon and become Louis' implicitly corrupt advisor.]] The Hollywood ending applied to the film was almost exactly the opposite of the book.

They reconcile at the end before D'Artagnan dies, Athos having realised his old friend only served his corrupt and evil king out of paternal loyalty]].
