** By the end of the first book, the heroes win out against Milady and avoid being destroyed by Ridhelieu, but at the cost of [[spoiler: the death of Madame Bonacieux, d'Artagnan's love interest, not to mention how the trial of Milady has soiled the soldier's life for his three friends, leaving him alone within the Musketeers by book's end]]. Richelieu, for his part, make out like a bandit: by the end of the story, of the people who dared to oppose him: [[spoiler: Constance and Buckingham are dead, the queen's other supporters are in exile, the Queen herself is isolated, Porthos and Aramis have retired, Athos does the same not long after, leaving only D'Artagnan who owes the Cardinal his life]]. Plain and simple, Richelieu ''wins''.

* ''WebSeries/AllForOne'' (debuted 2016), probably one of the most radically different adaptations, as it's [[RecycledInSpace Recycled]] [[SettingUpdate in a modern-day college]], with most characters {{Gender Flip}}ped and turned into college students. Regrettably (?), there are no swords.

* TheAllegedSteed: d'Artagnan's yellow horse, which he disposes of as soon as he reaches Paris.
** Which shows up again when Porthos is given an insult by his mistress.
** In the 1921 silent film, d'Artagnan (Douglas Fairbanks) kisses the "embarrassing horse" goodbye after trading him for a new hat.

* WildMassGuessing: [[ According to TheOtherWiki,]] going back as far as the 1950s, it has been considered that Milady's Fleur-de-lis was actually meant as a symbol that she was a hermaphrodite, (the idea being that the criminal nature of the Fleur-de-lis alone isn't enough to justify the extreme revulsion it induces in those that discover it) and was inspired by the historical figure the [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Chevalier_d%27Eon Chevalier d'Éon.]]
** The ''Angelique'' series (of novels by Sergeanne Golon) provides another explanation: the Fleur-de-lis was used to brand convicted prostitutes. [[ValuesDissonance Apparently it's OK to be a loose lady of high birth, but not a cheap slut from the gutter.]]
