* PreInsanityReveal: Ben Gunn was once a part of Captain Flint's crew, though unliked by his shipmates. He knows the location of Flint's treasure, but no one believes him. Marooned on a deserted island, he becomes more than a little addled, talks in the third person and has an obsessive craving for cheese.

* LargeHam: In most adaptations, Silver, and to a lesser extent, Trelawney.



* LostInTranslation: In the original Jim views the whole story as an ordeal, wants nothing to do with it, of which he says in not uncertain terms, and he's still often [[CatapultNightmare thrown off the bed]] when he dreams of it. In fact, the very first paragraph implies that he wasn't particularly keen on [[LiteraryAgentHypothesis writing the story]], but did so only because Trelawney and Livesey asked him to. The most popular Russian translation by [[http://ru.wikipedia.org/wiki/Николай_Чуковский Nikolay Chukovsky]], while pretty faithful in most regards, throws his attitude completely out of the window, making it as if Jim ''likes'' the adventure.
* LoveableRogue: Long John Silver, verging on MagnificentBastard. In some of the adaptations (notably the [[Film/MuppetTreasureIsland Muppet]] one), he no longer simply ''verges'' on the magnificent bastardy, but fully and enthusiastically embraces the trope.
