* HilariousInHindsight: The 2002 film with Jim Caviezel gives him long hair and a beard from all those years of incarceration. He later played [[Film/ThePassionOfTheChrist Jesus]].
** It goes beyond that. The movie make's Dantes the biological father of Albert Mondego (Creator/HenryCavill).This would mean that Jesus was the father of ''[[Film/ManOfSteel Superman]]''.

* AlternativeCharacterInterpretation: 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.]] His revenge scheme even include killing his former lover's son and he made a point that his revenge aimed every child of mature age.
** AffablyEvil
** AntiHero: Type IV or V
** AristocratsAreEvil
** VillainProtagonist

** VillainProtagonistVillefort can actually come across as less evil/jerkassed than the other three despite his rather worse crimes ([[spoiler:such as knowingly locking away a (actually innocent) man in the off-chance his talking might damage his career, covering up a crime committed by a relative, having an affair that results in an illegitimate child, burying said child alive]]) due to the fact that he does seem to be a loving-if-stern father to Valentine and Edouard, and his increasing breakdown as his household is the target of several murders ([[TheCobblersChildrenHaveNoShoes for a crown attorney, this is even worse than usual]]). Even the [[spoiler:attempted infanticide]] is lessened when we see what kind of person [[spoiler:Benedetto]] grew up to be.

* FunnyMoments:
** The meeting between [[PaidForFamily Cavalcanti Jr. and Sr.]], where the narration really piles on the sarcasm, as the respectful son hugs his loving father, both secure in the knowledge that they're going to be rich.
** Danglars' conversation with his wife, using a HurricaneOfEuphemisms to inform her that while he doesn't care that she's cheating on him with the minister's undersecretary, he ''does'' care that it's costing him money.

* OlderThanTheyThink: Among other things, the book is one of the first to introduce invisible ink and the treasure map as concepts, and the scheme employed to bankrupt Danglars is not only a version of the con known as "the wire", but is essentially the same trick done in the Eddie Murphy movie, ''TradingPlaces''. Also, although invisible ink was used earlier by EdgarAllanPoe in his story "The Gold Bug", this novel is one of the earlier uses of the idea before it became a cliche.
