Added DiffLines:

* Spinoff: The Verbose Barnacle is a longer, classier version of the original story that manages to stick the source material very well.

* AlternativeCharacterInterpretation: This story is probably the best every story for it. The story doesn't tell us who "everyone" is, only that he/they died. Also, if "barnacle" happens to be a foreign word Patrick picked up, then who knows what this bringer of destruction could be?

** FridgeBrilliance: If Everyone is the name of a single(evil) person, then this may not be a subverted trope.
* [[spoiler:TheHeroDies: Assuming he was a hero. Patrick did say that ''everyone died'', so shouldn't that include the barnacle itself?]]

* InformedDeformity: We're told that the protagonist is ugly, and we're told of the ramifications of his ugliness, but it is never made clear exactly what features he has that make him so ugly.
** FridgeBrilliance: It's possible that if we were told, [[spoiler:we would die]].

An animated film adaptation of the tale, also titled ''The Ugly Barnacle'', was produced in 2000. Unusually, the movie is both a [[TheFilmOfTheBook Film Of The Book]] and a {{Biopic}}, as it focuses on both the legendary story and the events surrounding its creation. The film managed to avoid many problems commonly faced by page-to-screen adaptations, a fact which many critics attributed to P.F. Patrick's extensive personal engagement with the film-making process, and the script-writing and casting+design in particular. [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=G2U8yfKM9nY Experience this work of art here, albeit dubbed over in English,]][[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Osc04vpIz98&feature=related and now in Castilian]]. Unfortunately the original French is not available, as the Département ''Bikini des Basses Terres'' Ministère de la Défaite claims exclusive French-language broadcast rights and has a very well-funded anti-piracy sub-office.
