** The [[SeaMonster Shrieking Eels]] from the film. They were only mentioned in passing in the book, but in the film we get to see and [[HellIsThatNoise hear them]]. To make matters worse, we [[NothingIsScarier hear them more than we see them]]. And according to Vizzini, their shrieks "always grow louder when they're about to feed on human flesh".

The sidenote is pointless with the rest of the entry not even mentioning the cloak.
** Parodied in the book, with an explanation that a scene with Fezzik and Inigo going on minor quests to save Westley was 'cut' because it seemed like a ripoff of ''Literature/{{The Wonderful Wizard of Oz}}'', even though the 'original version' came out first. (In the film, Fezzik conveniently receives it from Miracle Max).

(Unfortunately, the film cut out even a mention of the "deleted scene," which made Fezzik's possession of a holocaust cloak -- which he acquires ''for'' that scene -- seem very out-of-left-field. Many would argue this [[TropesAreNotBad isn't a bad thing]].) ** In the film he gets the cloak from Miracle Max.

* HilariousInHindsight: In the 1973 book, gamers will appreciate Goldman deciding to skip over the [[{{Padding}} long and repetitive]] FetchQuest Inigo and Fezzik undertake [[DisappointingLastLevel late in the book]] to procure the ingredients for Max's miracle pill.

In fact, this is just one of many things that was [[KayFabe abridged]] that sounds an awful lot like FakeLongevity in an [=RPG=] game specifically, as opposed to just general story-telling {{Padding}}.

Not YMMV
* DownerEnding: At the end of the book, the characters are on the run, with indications of trouble ahead and the Prince's forces slowly catching up to them. This is followed by one last 'editor's comment' from Goldman, saying that "life isn't very fair: it's just fairer than death, that's all."

Added DiffLines:
* SpecialEffectFailure: When the heroes leave on the four white horses, it is quite clear that Fezzik has a body double. Necessary, though, in that there isn't likely a horse in the world that could carry Andre the Giant's mass.

* ParodySue: Buttercup and Westley. The former of the PuritySue type, and the latter of the [[MaryTzu Marty Tzu]] with a dash GodModeSue seeing as he was able to both outfence Ignigo and outwrestle Fezzik.

* CultClassicCultClassic: Only made $30.8 million on a $16 million budget, but has become so popular that it borders on being an outright (non-cult) classic.
