!!The French production, and most of the subsequent versions

* CryForTheDevil: "C'est pas ma faute" ("It's Not My Fault") is, er, ''supposed'' to be this for Tybalt, though it comes off rather shallow and whiny in most versions. The Russian translation made it less a shallow play for sympathy and more of a VillainousLament, the Belgian is a bitter, self-loathing rant, and the Hungarian version made it... well, see below in the Hungarian section.
* EndingFatigue: Largely brought on by everyone and everything having a ballad attached to it after the halfway mark in Act II. (The Hungarian version rectified this, see below.)
* FoeYay:
** "Les Enfants de Vérone" has a rather baffling encounter between Tybalt and Mercutio at the ball. It appears to be both a fight and a seduction scene, as the poses are suggestive and show far too much enjoyment from both parties, [[CombatSadomasochist especially Mercutio]]. Mercutio even performs a rather... provocative dance which Tybalt seems to appreciate.
** To throw all ambiguity out the window, Mercutio tells Tybalt he cannot truly call himself mad until, among other things, he sleeps with an older man, and he proposes to teach him.
** The Austrian version has the infamous [[TakeThatKiss death smooch]] that Tybalt plants on Mercutio after stabbing him.
* HollywoodHomely: Almost all of the actresses who've played the supposedly unattractive Nurse [[http://www.flickr.com/photos/12962947@N07/1456132601/in/set-72157602332070752/ are]] [[http://www.flickr.com/photos/12962947@N07/1523982473/in/set-72157602337441783/ really]] [[http://www.flickr.com/photos/12962947@N07/1523907351/in/set-72157602337434507/ quite]] [[http://www.flickr.com/photos/12962947@N07/1523957883/in/set-72157602332069800/ pretty]].
* HoYay: Romeo and Mercutio. Not to mention Benvolio. Dear ''God''.
* RetroactiveRecognition: People familiar with real-life couple Lukas Perman and Marjan Shaki from the Vienna revival of ''TanzDerVampire'', in which they play Alfred and Sarah, are likely to have this reaction to seeing them in the Austrian video as Romeo and Juliet.
* TastesLikeDiabetes: ''Aimer''.

!!The Hungarian/Romanian adaptation

* AlternateCharacterInterpretation, even compared to the other versions. Lady Capulet is a wildly unfaithful wife (and later, a heavy drinker). She and Lady Montague aren't above having vicious verbal catfights in the streets. Tybalt is a deeply damaged man suffering from epilepsy, a ''severe'' madonna/whore complex, and [[UnresolvedSexualTension UST]] with his aunt (and has his French counterpart's love for Juliet warped into a bizarre obsession with her purity, to the point where he thinks even ''he'' should never touch her), and who ''welcomes'' death when Romeo kills him.
* CrowningMomentOfFunny: Despite the generally DarkerAndEdgier tone, some of the added dialogue enters here. Probably the best addition is the scene with Mercutio, Benvolio, and Romeo, after they escaped the ball. They half-jokingly discuss that Romeo's life is not worth betting on, to which Romeo answers that the flight (the feeling of the stolen kiss) was worth it regardless. Benvolio suggests that the girl must have used some kind of potion on her lips that made Romeo delusional. Mercutio walks up to Romeo, exclaims that he also wants to fly, and quickly kisses him on the lips. Afterwards he briefly pretends to fly, then looks on Benvolio:
-->'''Mercutio:''' "Benvolio... what a beauty you are !"
-->'''Benvolio, frightened to death:''' "No, no, I'm ugly as hell !" ''He runs away.''
* EnsembleDarkhorse: While Mercutio and Tybalt are always this in any adaptation, AO3 has more hits for the Rómeó és Júlia versions of their characters than any others.
* FoeYay: Mercutio and Tybalt, to a faintly mindboggling extent.
* HolyShitQuotient: The Capulet ball has fan dancers. The fans are ''on fire''.
** Romeo doesn't poison himself, he hangs himself. With Juliet tied to his body.
* {{Narm}}: The amount of ChewingTheScenery in Act 2 is taken to absurd levels, which leaves a couple of songs with some unintentionally comedic undertones. Romeo dragging Juliet's unconscious body with himself before hanging himself with her strapped around himself can come across as this for instance.
* {{Woolseyism}}: The lyrics are peppered with Hungarian endearments, figures of speech, slang and sayings.
