* AssholeVictim * ButNotTooBlack: Thérèse has an African mother, but doesn't look any different from women of European ancestry. ** Algerians are frequently not very dark--it's ''North'' Africa; their historical allegiance and kinship is to the Mediterranean, not the continent. ** After WWII during the long-drawn fight for independence, Algerian women in Algiers were apparently able to pass for Frenchwomen by cutting and curling their hair and wearing the latest fashions, so as to get through checkpoints without having their bags searched--and place bombs. * CantHaveSexEver: After Camille dies, Laurent and Thérèse find they are unable to have sex. Partly because they keep imagining they see him in their bedroom.

Huge misuse of the trope: * Platonic Life Partners: Camille and Thérèse's marriage. — it is about deep friendship between man and woman, not loveless/passionless marriage
* FourTemperamentEnsemble: The four main characters. ** Sanguine: Laurent ** Choleric: Madame Raquin ** Melancholic: Thérèse ** Phlegmatic: Camille ** The author actually ''did research'' on the four temperaments while writing the novel and deliberately wrote the main character's personalities with this trope in mind.

Laurent is Sanguine, Madame Raquin is Choleric, apathetic Thérèse is Melancholic and Camille is Phlegmatic.

deleting misuse — Madame Raquin. an older woman who is a mother of an adult man, is not The Cutie or The Ingenue by any stretch of the definition.
* BreakTheCutie: Madame Raquin

* {{Ingenue}}: Madame Raquin
