* FoeRomanceSubtext: With lines in Confrontation like "They'll never be able to separate Jekyll from Hyde," this was kinda inevitable.

** "In His Eyes," sung just after "Reflections" in some versions, details Emma and Lucy both singing about their love for Jekyll and how everything they need in his eyes... when neither of them knows about Hyde, the murders he committed, or that Jekyll and Hyde are the same person.

* HateSink: The Bishop and Simon Stride have little to no redeeming qualities and mainly exist to oppose Jekyll, showcase London's hypocrisy, and let the viewers root for Hyde briefly. The Spider is an even bigger case, as he has ''no'' redeeming qualities and gets off scot-free fro his mistreatment of Lucy.
* HotterAndSexier: "A Dangerous Game" has always had sexual undertones, but concert tour album Jekyll & Hyde Resurrection adds a heavy R&B beat. The [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Xgpu-JpJCtY 2012 version]] upon which the Broadway Revival is based cranks it even further.
** And the subtext [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=19nLJ1rHu28 becomes text]] in the 2013 Revival, complete with BondageIsBad.
* HookerWithAHeartOfGold: Lucy in most versions. Even in the original Broadway Production where her prostitution is [[BleachedUnderpants white-washed away,]] this is still the core of her character.

* MurderTheHypotenuse: The love triangle is broken when Hyde kills Lucy. Since Jekyll loves Emma and Lucy loves Jekyll and Hyde lusts for Lucy, it's a little complicated.

** Simon Stride had a bigger part in the concept album; he vowed revenge on Jekyll for stealing Emma, was revealed as the benefactor of the Dregs, got his own song explaining his philosophy, then sabotaged Jekyll's chemicals before being killed at the wedding as Hyde reveals his crimes. In the first Broadway version he shows up in one of the first scenes to imply having feelings for Emma, and then vanishes completely until the last scene, where he's killed. Some versions reinstate his larger role.
