* 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.

* 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.

* 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.
