* AdaptationalVillainy: McBryde. The sympathetic qualities Forster gives him are pretty much excised in the movie, making him a straightforward villain.

* PunchClockVillain: McBryde expresses the same racism as his peers, but he generally respects Indians and regrets the furor building up around Aziz's trial. He also remains friendly with Fielding when other British characters turn their back on him.

* SpotOfTea: It's exasperating to Adela how the vast majority British Community in Chandrapore has recreated a microcosm of English life and Culture without making any effort to associate or learn about their Indian subjects. When she's taken to the Club for the first time she's served Tea and cucumber sandwichs.
