* NoEndorHolocaust: the false message that caused Danglars to lose a large chunk of his fortune very likely ruined other investors, but we only hear about Danglars'. [[spoiler: [[FridgeBrilliance Of course, a major point of the story is that initially the Count doesn't care who he hurts so long as he has his revenge.]]]]

* FakeAssistedSuicide: After Maximilien's fiancee Valentine is poisoned, Maximilien is heartbroken and only the Count's intervention prevents him from shooting himself by revealing it was he who saved his father from bankruptcy and suicide, extorting from Maximilien a solemn oath that he won't make any more suicide attempts for a month. Having taken him to his private island in the meantime, the Count finds that Maximilien is still willing to die, and gives him a spoonful of haschich, which he claims will kill him painlessly. After Maximilien takes it and wakes up, he bitterly readies to kill himself with a knife... before Valentine makes her presence known to him (the Count had helped her fake her death in order to continue his revenge against her father, he was perfectly willing to let her die before he learned how important she was to Maximilien).

* ExcuseBoomerang: Invoked, but not by the criminal. [[spoiler:Benedetto]] has cheerfully revealed that he's a thief, escaped convict and murderer, along with the fact that he was nearly BuriedAlive as a minutes-old infant by his father before being rescued and raised to adulthood, and that his father is the public prosecutor. A cop comments on the situation saying that there'll be mitigating circumstances.

** When they're planning to run away together after Eugenie's engagement ends in disaster, they are extremely affectionate and flirty, calling each other "my sweet", comparing themselves to classical lovers such as Hercules and Queen Omphale (who liked to switch clothes with Hercules for fun), and comparing the situation to a sexual abduction.

* BlueBlood: Several characters are aristocrats, but quite a few only recently so. Valentine's grandmother, the marquise de Saint-Meran, would likely have opposed her marriage to a commoner like Maximilian.

** Even the Count, the ManipulativeBastard himself, doesn't realize that Maximilian and Valentine are romantically involved until [[spoiler:the last minute]]; as far as he's concerned, Valentine is the daughter of his hated enemy.

* PoorCommunicationKills: A lot of drama could have been avoided had Maximilian told the Count ''who'' he was head over heels in love with, since the Count was actively pushing for her murder by proxy at the time to get at her father.
