** He could’ve been nicer about it, sure, but Javert - really, as he implies, ''any'' sane police officer - didn’t actually have any reason to believe Valjean when he said he’d be back in three days after going to get Cosette. Especially since repeated escape attempts and breaking parole for 8 years are among the things Valjean is most wanted for, and he did hide his identity around Javert when they were in M-sur-M together - it honestly shouldn’t matter whether he’s become a good person or not, because even if Javert did believe Valjean intended to go save Cosette as promised, he still shouldn't have reason to believe that he'd willingly come back to jail after being let out of sight.

* AlternateCharacterInterpretation: Depending on how the actors play it, this can occur with many of the characters. For example, in the Champmathieu situation, a lot of the actors playing Javert play the situation as though Javert still suspects the Mayor despite the news of the 'real' Valjean, and is hoping to panic him into making a mistake. The 2012 film plays it as though Javert is genuinely ashamed at his accusal.

* EnsembleDarkhorse: Oodles of 'em. The street urchin Gavroche was especially embraced by the French as a literary and cultural icon.

** Enjolras/Grantaire definitely qualifies; fans have taken the oodles of canon HoYay (see below) and ''run'' with it. It is currently by far the top pairing in the Les Miserables category on ArchiveOfOurOwn.

** Thanks to [[WebOriginal/TheNostalgiaCritic]], Colm Wilkinson singing "home" has become one due to it sounding like, in his words "a vomiting cat in reverse."

* ValuesDissonance: In a marked departure from the norm, Enjolras is the BigBad (and played by veteran horror film actor Creator/JohnCarradine) in the 1935 version. The film was made during the First Red Scare, and thus a positively portrayed revolutionary would've been abhorrent to the public at the time.

** In the German production, Uwe Kröger and Martin Pasching - Javert and Enjolras, respectively - previously played Death and Crown Prince Rudolf in Theatre/{{Elisabeth}}. They lampshaded it by dueting "Die Schatten werden länger", the ''Elisabeth'' song which their characters share... making it canon that Enjolras, [[spoiler: the character whose corpse is shown most prominently in the show]] dances with Death.

** Somehow, the Thenardiers being AdaptationalComicRelief makes them even more abhorrent than their book counterparts--they cackle like lunatics over their rotten deeds and clearly don't show a shred of remorse nor a shred of empathy. Not even Madam can be bothered to care about her daughter's death.

** From "Attack on Rue Plumet", we have this when Eponine foils Thenardier's attempt at robbing Valjean by screaming and alerting everyone present to their location:
-->'''Thenardier:''' You wait my girl, you'll rue this night! I'll make you scream, ''[[AbusiveParents YOU'LL SCREAM ALRIGHT!]]''
