* HarsherInHindsight: Hyde's crimes were heinous enough, but soon after the book was published, the Jack the Ripper murders took place. Even worse, one of the suspects was an actor who ''played'' Jekyll and Hyde onstage; his performance was so convincing that people began to believe it wasn't an act.

!! The 1988 video game provides examples of:
* NightmareFuel: The game has two endings. One of them is reached by simply getting to the church as Jekyll before Hyde. It just shows the church and the word "END" appears while the wedding march plays. A second ending, somewhat hidden, is earned by reaching Level 6 as Jekyll and then proceeding to the end as Hyde. Hyde then fights a boss "demon" at the church, and, upon beating it, turns back into Jekyll. Jekyll's able to reach the church unhindered (all the enemies disappear) and an extended cutscene of the wedding plays. "END" appears when the screen fades out after bride and groom kiss. However, after waiting a while, the music will abruptly stop and the sound effect for the bomb is played. When the bomb "explodes", lightning flashes, the word "END" appears reversed, and Mr. Hype appears as a red silhouette with what appears to be a giant cross embedded into his back. Like everything else about the game, the extended ending is unexplained, leaving it ambiguous (for the wrong reasons) as to whether or not it can be considered a "good" or "bad" ending.
** What throws this into NightmareFuel is that Hyde's silhouette in the second ending comes out of nowhere, and given what happens to Dr. Jekyll in the book, it can be implied that Hyde still "lives", or worse, that the demon he killed took over the Hyde personality. The lighter explanation is that the cross represents Jekyll finally "ending" Hyde by getting married. [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PdrFR76Bs6E This video suggests the latter is a good ending]].
* TheProblemWithLicensedGames: One of WebVideo/JoueurDuGrenier 's most hated game and it's WebVideo/TheAngryVideoGameNerd's least favourite (or [[VideoGame/{{ET}} second least favourite]]) game. And he plays a ''lot'' of bad ones.

* ItWasHisSled: In a ''big'' way; the TwistEnding is [[AllThereIsToKnowAboutTheCryingGame pretty much the ]]''[[AllThereIsToKnowAboutTheCryingGame only ]]''[[AllThereIsToKnowAboutTheCryingGame thing most people will know]] when asked about this story, even if they've never read the book or watched the adaptations.

* ItWasHisSled: In The original story is a ''big'' way; mystery about what connection the upstanding Jekyll could have to the shady Hdye. Pretty much everyone nowadays already knows the answer (which was a TwistEnding is [[AllThereIsToKnowAboutTheCryingGame pretty much the ]]''[[AllThereIsToKnowAboutTheCryingGame only ]]''[[AllThereIsToKnowAboutTheCryingGame thing most people will know]] when asked about this story, even if they've never read the book or watched was published)- Jekyll and Hyde are one and the adaptations.same, the result of Jekyll taking a potion that split him into two selves, one normal and one totally evil. Often enough, the twist is the ''[[AllThereIsToKnowAboutTheCryingGame only]]'' thing they know about the story.

!! The 1931 film provides examples of:
* BigLippedAlligatorMoment: The scene towards the beginning where the overwhelmingly {{Narm}}y little girl discovers that she can walk again seems to be setting up her recrippling from the book, but this never actually happens, so the scene just seems bizarre and out of place with zero bearing on the plot.

** In the book Jekyll pretty much admits that his motive for inventing the serum was nothing other than ForTheEvulz; he wants to be able to act immorally, but as Jekyll he'll always be worried about his respectable image (not really anything to do with conscience). As Hyde he doesn't have to worry, as the worst people think of him is that Hyde might be blackmailing him (and / or could be his BastardBastard son).

And keep in mind that Jekyll chooses to keep turning into Hyde ''even after Hyde severely injured an innocent child.''

* MainstreamObscurity: Just ask a member of the general public to give you even a vague summary of the plot! As mentioned above, most people ''don't even know'' that the dual identity was originally a TwistEnding, and it is not uncommon to see [[Film/VanHelsing parodies]] [[TheLeagueOfExtraordinaryGentlemen of it]] where Hyde is literally an ogre monster- rather than simply an evil (but not even particularly ugly) man. To be fair, Hyde is described in the book as a misshapen dwarf so ugly he inspires hatred in people without them even understanding why (possibly an uncanny valley effect due to looking somewhat inhuman).
