* {{Narm}}:
** While the original production was comparatively restrained, the revival had a Mercutio and Tybalt who seemed desperate to out-cartoon each other and kill any drama, with the help of Tom Ross' downright bizarre delivery of his lines and Eyzen's Mark Hamill-esque cackling.
** The Italian version borders on NarmCharm. We get perpetually shirtless [[Series/GameOfThrones Khal Escalus]], a Tybalt who is introduced drawing a scar on his face with eyeliner to look tougher, an extremely high strung and overdramatic Mercutio who may outrank Harold Perrineau in sheer hamminess, and inexplicable red globe headed ladies that Tybalt may have hallucinated. Also, Les Rois du Monde is an outright Village People production.

* AlternateCharacterInterpretation:
** Notably invoked, that Romeo ''isn't'' the broody, [[{{Wangst}} wangsting]] EmoTeen he is in Shakespeare, but just a sensitive young guy who dreams of one day finding someone to love and share his life with.
** Tybalt is in love with his cousin, Juliet, so his motivation switches from petty battle lust to romantic jealousy. Depending on the version, Tybalt murdering Mercutio may be an accident or [[AdaptationalVillainy completely deliberate]]. How he reacts also can vary anywhere between gloating and actual catatonia.
** So far, Mercutio has had three settings: a simple womanising fun loving man, an otherworldly willing agent of chaos, or a man driven by unrequited love for his best friend.



* HoYay: Romeo and Mercutio. Not to mention Benvolio. Dear ''God''.

* TastesLikeDiabetes: ''Aimer'', to the point of having been parodied several times in France.



* EnsembleDarkhorse: While Mercutio and Tybalt are always this in any adaptation, AO3 has more hits for the Rómeó és Júlia versions of their characters than any others.

** The Austrian version has the infamous [[death smooch TakeThatKiss]] that Tybalt plants on Mercutio after stabbing him.

Added DiffLines:

* {{Narm}}: The amount of ChewingTheScenery in Act 2 is taken to absurd levels, which leaves a couple of songs with some unintentionally comedic undertones. Romeo dragging Juliet's unconscious body with himself before hanging himself with her strapped around himself can come across as this for instance.

* CrowningMomentOfFunny: Despite the generally DarkerAndEdgier tone, some of the added dialoges enters here. Probably the best one is the scene with Mercuio, Benvolio and Romeo, after they escaped the ball. They half-jokingly discuss that Romeo's life is not worth betting on, to which Romeo answers that the flight (the feeling of the stolen kiss) was worth it regardless. Benvolio suggests that the girl must have used some kind of potion on her lips, that made Romeo dillusional. Mercuio walks up to Romeo, exclaims that he also wants to fly, and quickly kisses him on the lips. Afterwards he briefly pretends to fly, then looks on Benvolio:
-->'''Mercuio''': Benvolio...what a beauty you are!
-->'''Benvolio frightened to death''': No, no, I'm ugly as hell!''>runs away<''
