* BlackComedy: The musical makes great use of this (see DarkerAndEdgier and DeliberateValuesDissonance below), most notably Mr. Phillips brief innuendo-laden song about "[[UnusualEuphemism attending to the needs]]" of his female students.

* DarkerAndEdgier: ''The Blythes Are Quoted'' in terms of tone and topic. In re: adaptations, also applies to the ''Anne of Green Gables: The Continuing Story" minseries.

* InsufferableGenius: Anne's student Jen Pringle, although the insufferable part is mostly the result of participation in her family's feud and quickly disappears. In the book, Anne initially compares her to a young [[VanityFair Becky Sharp]]. In the movie, Jen's more of a straight-up AlphaBitch.

** ''Anne of Green Gables: The Continuing Story'' throws book continuity out the window (and jumping forward in time at least twenty years) by having Anne actually go to Europe and the fields of battle.

* ThinksLikeARomanceNovel: Anne, especially as a teenager. She has an overactive imagination as it is, but add in a hopeless romantic streak and one too many romance novels, and you get some of the funniest moments in the series. As she gets older, however, her idealized notions of who she wants as a partner and what being in love is supposed to feel like start working against her. She is oblivious not only to Gilbert's feelings for her, but of her own growing feelings for him. She suffers a painful reality check near the end of ''Anne of the Island,'' when she realizes she isn't in love with the man who fits her ideals, and is in love with the man who didn't--the same man she might lose forever.

** In the third movie adaptation (okay, not so much adaptation as total re-write...in the wrong time period), Anne and Gilbert share one as he goes off to war.

* ThinksLikeARomanceNovel: Younger Anne, to the extreme. Besides lending itself to some rather funny escapades, including the formation of a writing club specifically for writing their own sappy romance stories and the recreation of Tennyson's "The Lady of Shallot" that ended with a sunken dory in the middle of a pond, it's also part of the reason why Anne is oblivious to Gilbert's feelings for her. Her view of what love is and what it's supposed to feel like is so skewed by her overly romantic mind that she can't see that Gilbert is in love with her and that she has feelings for him. She thinks her ideal man should be like the men of her novels--tall, dark, and handsome--and thinks she found it in Roy Gardner. It's a rather big reality check when Anne realizes that romance novels are not anything like every day life, along with the sickening sensation that she may have lost true love in her pursuit of her "ideal."
