* BerserkButton: Don't [[MoralEventHorizon send Benjamin's best friend Boxer to the knacker's]]. You'll regret it later on. Exclusive to the animated adaptation.

* YouHaveOutlivedYourUsefulness: The final fate of Boxer. He works himself until his body breaks down for the sake of the farm's prosperity, and Napoleon has him sold to a knacker since he can't work anymore. Crossing this line arguably makes Napoleon no better than humanity.

* RandomlyReversedLetters: The Seven Commandments of Animalism, as originally written on the wall by Snowball, have only two errors of penmanship, one of them being the reversal of one of the S's. In the edition with full-color illustrations by Ralph Steadman, the reversed S is the one in the Fifth Commandment, "No animal shall drink alcohol."

A live action version, starring Creator/PatrickStewart as the voice of Napoleon and KelseyGrammer as Snowball, was produced in 1999. A stage adaptation, drawing heavily from another Orwell classic, ''Literature/HomageToCatalonia'', was first produced in 2008. Creator/AndySerkis is going to direct a new film version in SerkisFolk.
