* BerserkButton: For Valjean, [[spoiler:Fantine's death]] is that in some adaptations (1935, 1952, 1955, [[Film/LesMiserables1995 1995 (in a way)]], [[Film/LesMiserables1998 1998]]) usually ending badly for [[spoiler:Javert]].

* GalleySlave: There is some confusion going on here anyway, as the novel frequently refers to [[spoiler:Valjean]] as a galley slave. This is due to the words "galley" and "galley slaves" continuing to be used in French for a kind of penitentiary (bagne in French) and their inmates, long after they were not actual [[SlaveGalley slave galleys]] anymore. Two movies (from '35 and '52), however, are (in)famous for taking the word too literally.



* PrisonShip: See GalleySlave above.

** Anime/LesMiserableshojoCosette downplayed the violence, reduced the body count, downplayed Fantine's sufferings and added Chou Chou, a friendly dog.



* NamedByTheAdaptation: The 1935 and 1952 movies each give Javert a first name (Émile and Étienne, respectively). Gavroche's 'brothers' in Shoujo Cosette are named Jurges and Pressoir.

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

* TheGameOfTheBook: Actually called "Les misérables: The game of the book", it's a point-and-click adventure with very simple graphics in which you basically have to make the story happen.
