* NiceJobFixingItVillain: After missing the last ship going to England, the band board another ship that has a different destination. Transfer disguises as the cook and attempts to feed Willy poisoned soup. But the bull-headed captain snatches the soup and eats it himself. This gives Willy the chance to receive the ship's authority from the bed-ridden captain and set the course towards England.

* CanonForeigner: Three very central ones, compared to the original novel -- Tico, Bully and Transfer. Tico and Bully seem to be included mainly for comedy relief, so that Rigodon and Dix can have someone to talk to, and -- in the case of Tico -- [[LocalReference include a Spanish character in the cast,]] given that there were none in the novel. Transfer, on the other hand, presents a recurring antagonist who's actually a threat (which can't really be said of Dix and Bully), as well as neatly taking over some of Phileas Fogg's more morally-questionable actions from the book, so that Willy Fog becomes more of an unquestioned hero.

He also makes Dix more sympathetic, by performing some of Fix's nastier tricks.
