* MakeItLookLikeAnAccident: The death of Mr. Arrow, who apparently fell overboard one night in a drunken stupor. In most adaptations that includes this incident, a scene is shown of Silver slipping him rum so that he would be drunk all the time and no one would inquire into his death too much.

* TheAlcoholic: Almost all of the pirates and Mr. Arrow. Billy Bones' stroke at the beginning is attributed to drinking little but rum at the Benbow Inn, and Captain Flint was allegedly killed by rum as well.

* RegeneratingHealth: Jim doesn't seem to suffer any long-term effects from being wounded and pinned to the mast by Israel Hands' dirk (which had previously been used to kill another pirate), or having to tear a bit of skin off of his shoulder to escape the pinning. It isn't even mentioned when [[TheMedic Doctor Livesey]] sees him again.

* GirlsNeedRoleModels: The large majority of children-oriented adaptations of the novel seem to add a female co-protagonist (or gender swap an existing male one) that the original novel lacks; nearly all examples of such are almost as effective and competent protagonists (if not sometimes [[PositiveDiscrimination more so]]) as Jim himself. Kathy of ''Animal Treasure Island'' is an example. Jane from ''The Legends of Treasure Island'' is another example.
