* AccidentallyAccurate: [[spoiler: Lombard correctly deduces that Wargrave is the murderer after only the third murder, and also comes quite close to the motive behind it]].


Added DiffLines:

* FakeNationality: Blore attempts to pass himself off as a South African named Davis, but is forced to admit his identity when "Davis" is not mentioned by the recording.


Added DiffLines:

* GetAHoldOfYourselfMan: Dr. Armstrong slaps Vera when she goes a bit loopy asking about bees. It seems to sober her up.

Added DiffLines:

* DeliberateValuesDissonance: Lombard doesn't seem to think that abandoning twenty-one men to starve was all that bad because "they were only natives".

''And Then There Were None'' is, without hyperbole, one of the most famous and popular [[MysteryFiction murder mysteries]] in history. It's the best selling novel of all time, outsold only by Literature/TheBible and works of Creator/WilliamShakespeare.

*BeCarefulWhatYouWishFor: Vera Claythorn and Philip Lombard meet each other by chance on a train, before actually getting to Indian Island. He daydreams about the attractive stranger, and estimates that she is a woman who can hold her own in love or war. He contemplates that "he would like to take her on". Philip has no idea at this point that he is going to face Vera in a battle to the death, and that he is staring at the woman who is going to kill him.

Added DiffLines:

*ApatheticTeacher: Vera Claythorne has shades of this at the beginning of the novel. Her regular job is being a "games mistress" (gym teacher) at what she describes as a third-class school. She has pretty much lost hope of ever working for a "decent" school, because of her past involvement in a Coroner's Inquest. And she clearly dislikes "looking after a swarm of children".

** The 2005 video game adaptation changes the killer's identity but still has them [[spoiler:fake their death]], which opens up the plot hole of [[spoiler:how they managed to fool Armstrong, a trained doctor, into believing they were dead]] because the killer doesn't have the book's justification of [[spoiler:persuading Armstrong beforehand to help them fake their death]] here.

The killer explains this by revealing that [[spoiler:she intentionally provoked him into drinking even more heavily than normal, so he would not notice that she was still alive.]]

%%* IronicNurseryTune: This was one of Christie's favourite tropes. In this book, it's central to the plot.
