YMMV: Noli Me Tangere
  • Anvilicious: Filipinos are perpetual victims. All Spaniards are venal and corrupt. Hidden Depths is nowhere to be found.
  • Ho Yay: Ibarra and Elias. You know Elias is that devoted to Ibarra when he chooses to save him instead of avenging his family (which is basically his entire reason for living).
  • Magnificent Bastard: Father Salvi orchestrates the entire rebellion just to separate Ibarra and Maria Clara.
  • Values Dissonance: Though Rizal wrote Maria Clara as the "ideal image" of the Filipino woman, modern literary critics and historians find her as "a misfortune" from the Spanish era due to being portrayed as weak and not taking an active role.
  • What Do You Mean, It's Not Symbolic?: People are still puzzled by the symbols on the cover.
