* SuperStrength: In all versions of the musical (film included) Valjean's twenty years of slavery has toughened his muscles and sinews, allowing him to perform almost superhuman feats such as '''singlehandedy''' lifting a shipmast or a fallen cart that a '''dozen''' men cannot even ''budge'', and effortlessly carrying grown loved ones across his shoulders to safety while running at a brisk pace.

* AntagonistInMourning: The 2017 London production has Javert visibly saddened by the sight dead students strewn across the barricade, crossing himself out of respect, and briefly crying ManlyTears for them before resuming his pursuit of Valjean.

** In a case of AllThereInTheManual, Gavroche is actually one of the Thenardier's sons who was essentially abandoned and forced to become a street urchin. While it's not ever explicitly mentioned in the show, some adaptations play this up by having Gavroche especially grief-stricken at [[spoiler:Eponine's death]].



** Cosette and Marius have managed to get to Valjean when hes still alive only for him to die ten minutes later

to:

** Some versions of the show have Gavroche climb over the barricade to collect ammo to a triumphant, fast-paced instrumental of "Do You Hear the People Sing" - [[spoiler:until he's shot and slowly bleeds out]].
** Cosette and Marius have managed to get to Valjean when hes still alive only for him to die ten minutes laterlater.
* YouAreNotAlone: how [[spoiler:Eponine]] dies. Also the fact that [[spoiler:Grantaire often dies alongside Enjolras - he refuses to let the man he idolizes die alone]].

* GriefSong: "Turning" and "Empty Chairs At Empty Tables". There's also a brief one after "Little Fall of Rain", where Les Amis vows to not let [[spoiler:Eponine]] die in vain.

* {{Foreshadowing}} In the 25th Anniversary staging, "Stars" is sung on a bridge over the Seine. [[DrivenToSuicide The bridge shows up later.]]

Added DiffLines:

* GoodIsNotSoft: Les Amis's response to Javert being a spy is, depending on the production, knocking him out, tying him up, or both. After [[spoiler:Eponine dies]], they are even ''more'' set against the military (and, presumably, Javert), and when Valjean arrives, they essentially force him to help them fight off the First Attack on pain of death.
