* AdaptationExplanationExtrication: Too many to count, but a good one is that both Javert's suspicion that Madeleine might be Valjean and the reasons for Champmathieu being mistaken for Valjean, while lengthily explained in the novel, are often condensed to "He looks like Valjean".
* AdaptationInducedPlotHole: Again, many.

*** Cosette in both '52 and the '82/'85 adaptation. Although in one, she stays the same age from when Valjean fetches her to adulthood and in the other from when Fantine leaves her to when Valjean fetches her.

* AdaptationDyeJob: In the book, Fantine and Enjolras are blond, Marius has curly black hair, and Cosette is brown-haired. The last one is often particularly ignored, usually in order to play up the visual similarity to her mother instead.. Seems TheIngenue just has to be blonde.

* RelationshipCompression: Marius/Cosette. It is very pointedly NOT love at first sight in the novel, but most adaptations make it into just that.

Victor Hugo's novel '''''Literature/LesMiserables''''' may not actually hold the record for most adaptations, but the list is still very impressive. There are currently [[AdaptationOverdosed 66 adaptations]] (although that's sometimes stretching the word a bit). A handful of these are easily available; die-hard fans have managed to see more than twenty. Check Wiki/{{Wikipedia}} for a list. Adaptations are in this article mainly referred to by production year.

* StealthPun: When Jean Valjean agrees to surrender to the authorities after taking Marius home, Javert sees Valjean as an ex-criminal who has reformed, and with the two conflicting concepts at hand, he acknowledges that [[Catch22Dilemma he cannot act lawfully without acting immorally, or vice-versa]], and as a result of the overwhelming madness, in Paris, he jumps into the river[[note]]the Seine[[/note]] and goes insane.

* AdaptationalAttractiveness: Usually with Javert, but some movies have Fantine look incredibly pretty (and above all healthy), when she's supposed to be dying of TB. Sometimes Valjean -- the 1978 version (starring Richard Jordan as Valjean) was released on video a blurb beginning: "Jean Valjean, a handsome young woodcutter..."

* AdaptationalBadass: Stretching it a bit, but Cosette is this in the 1992 French cartoon.



* AdaptationalVillainy: Javert in the novel may be Valjean's antagonist for most of the time, but some adaptations portray him as outright evil, sometimes even brutal ('35, '52, '98...). This is often due to the removal of the Thénardier couple, who would otherwise serve as primary antagonists.
