* Cutting the TwistEnding: The book is presented as a mystery, with the identity of Hyde as the TwistEnding, but this is absent from most adaptations, mainly because [[PopcultureOsmosis the twist is now too famous to surprise anyone]]. Similarly, Hyde usually turns into Jekyll upon death rather than staying Hyde.

* The nature of the SplitPersonality: In adaptations set in modern days, Jekyll is usually unaware or only vaguely conscious of Hyde's actions, suffering from [[IdentityAmnesia split personality amnesia]]. The book suggests Jekyll ''does'' remember everything he did as Hyde, but [[MyGodWhatHaveIDone begins to find his own depravity horrifying]] and tries to dissociate himself from it. Hyde himself has unclear memories of what Jekyll does.

* Straightforward film adaptations in 1920 (with John Barrymore), [[Film/DrJekyllAndMrHyde1931 1931]] (with Creator/FredricMarch and Creator/MiriamHopkins) and 1941 (with Creator/SpencerTracy, Creator/IngridBergman and Creator/LanaTurner.) Jekyll was cast much younger than he is in the novel, and female love interests are added. They also abandon the character of Utterson and his investigation for a story centered on Jekyll and Hyde. The 1931 film is probably the best-regarded film version. It offers a rare case of a horror film winning an UsefulNotes/AcademyAward, as March won Best Actor for his portrayal of Jekyll and Hyde. The 1941 one was a direct remake of the '31 film.

*
''WebComic/MKsTheStrangeCaseOfDrJekyllAndMrHyde'', another web comic that is a retelling of the book mostly and a bit of the play which takes duality in another direction in that in this version, Hyde is not all bad while not everything Jekyll does can be considered as entirely good. Moreover, it also explores people's nature in how good and bad are not cut and dry. That and how social class can influence how noticed good deeds are and how ignored bad ones are.

* ''The Janus Head'', a 1920 silent German film version directed by F.W. Murnau and starring Conrad Veidt. It changed the characters' names to Dr. Warren and Mr. O'Connor to keep the twist. Also has Bela Lugosi as the butler. It is also apparently lost forever due to legal issues, but if the production notes are to be believed, it has the first moving camera in cinema history.

* Russell Crowe plays both parts in the Film/DarkUniverse, the shared universe of the Franchise/UniversalHorror films. This is in spite of the story not having been part of the original film series, as the two contemporary films mentioned above were made by Paramount and MGM respectively.

* AllThereIsToKnowAboutTheCryingGame: The work is [[MainstreamObscurity well-known by name]], but all that most people have heard about it is [[JekyllAndHyde the twist ending]]. Many do not even know that the dual identity story was originally a twist at all, and most newer adaptations treat it as a foregone conclusion. Some even make Hyde himself some sort of ugly were-monster rather than just a really evil man.
