!!Tropes in the 1962 film: * AdaptedOut: Lady Helena. * AsTheGoodBookSays: Most of Bill Gaye's lines are Bible quotes taken out of context. * CanonForeigner: John Glenarvan; in the novel, Lord and Lady Glenarvan are just married and have no children. * DeadpanSnarker: Lord Glenarvan and his son, John. * TheEeyore: Lord Glenarvan always finds something to complain about. He gets a bit better towards the end. * ObfuscatingInsanity: Bill Gaye. Maybe he's insane, maybe he's pretending to be insane, [[BreadEggsBreadedEggs maybe he's insane]] ''[[BreadEggsBreadedEggs and]]'' [[BreadEggsBreadedEggs pretending to be insane]]... * PluckyComicRelief: Paganel and Bill Gaye. * TwistEnding: [[spoiler: Captain Grant didn't throw that bottle in the ocean. Bill Gaye did. Mary and Robert thought it was their father's handwriting because Gaye was a forger.]] * VitriolicBestBuds: Lord Glenarvan and Mr. Paganel.

* [[Film/MontyPythonAndTheHolyGrail Sir Not Appearing In This Film]]: As this was the first of the Captain Nemo Trilogy, but was finished well before the ArcWelding in ''TheMysteriousIsland'', Captain Nemo is never mentioned here.

* ScienceMarchesOn: In many ways, but the most plot significant is that the Tabor island (AKA Maria-Theresa reef), [[spoiler: where Captain Grant was wrecked and where they later marooned Ayrton]], was later shown ''to not exist at all''. There were actually a lot of similar "phantom islands" on the maps of the time.

* CoolBoat: ''The Duncan'', Lord Glenarvan's steam yacht. A small and nimble ocean-going boat, she's been outfitted as a brig, but still was mainly a steamer, posting 17 knots at full steam, and was able to get into any point of the Earth's oceans.

* ChasedByAngryNatives: Half of the New Zealand sengment consist entirely of this, after the heroes get into altercation with Maori. * ConvenientEscapeBoat: While running from the Maori, the heroes find a couple of the unused pirogues on the shore and hastily make their escape to the convenient European ship seen nearby. Their pursuers [[ChasedByAngryNatives promptly give chase in the second boat]], and hadn't the ship turned out to be the ''[[CoolBoat Duncan]]'', ready to give them some fire support, their fate was far from assured.
