* SpicyLatina: Clementina.
* SpiritualSuccessor: This can be seen as one to Theatre/TheRoseOfAlgeria. In both productions the setting is North Africa, the French hero has a family connection to the governor (De Lome's uncle/Pierre's father) and a strained relationship due to the hero's personality which differs from the "ideal" soldier. Both stories feature a protagonist in love with the other's alter ego and deal in some way with colonialism with the French Foreign Legion as a backdrop.
