* AlternateCharacterInterpretation: Although he's presented as/intended as an {{Antihero}}, for a large part of the book, the Count is, arguably, a VillainProtagonist. [[spoiler:He does manipulate a greedy wife into poisoning almost every single member of her family, including one KickTheDog moment outside the count's immediate control where she poisons her nine-year-old son.]]

* OneSceneWonder: Alex Norton as Napoleon in the 2002 film has maybe five minutes of screen time, but in that five minutes you absolutely see why this man nearly conquered Europe.

** The Count owning slaves is an InUniverse one, as several characters note, but since he claims to be of any nationality but French he gets a pass. The fact that his slaves are InNameOnly (especially Haydee) also helps for modern audiences.

Added DiffLines:

* DoNotDoThisCoolThing: Remember kids, vengeance is bad. The 2002 film will demonstrate that although it appears to be ''totally awesome'', it's nevertheless very, very bad.

* CompleteMonster: Benedetto. While the other antagonists at least show some remorse, or at least some sign of humanity, Benedetto is utterly selfish, happily took advantage of the Count, only to rob him, literally stabbed his accomplice in the back, and burned his adoptive mother alive as a teenager.
** EvilIsSexy: Benedetto is repeatedly described as handsome and (while in his aristocratic guise) charming.

** An in-universe one: several characters note that Albert ''apologizing'' for insulting the count, having learned of his father's behavior, comes off as dishonorable. One claims that "had my father committed ten Janinas, I would only have seen fit to fight ten times".

** An in-universe one: several characters note that Albert ''apologizing'' for insulting the count, having learned of his father's behavior, comes off as dishonorable. dishonourable; apologizing to someone you'd challenged to a duel and backing down from the duel was seen as deep cowardice. One claims that "had my father committed ten Janinas, I would only have seen fit to fight ten times".
