YMMV: The Mysterious Island
- Adaptation Displacement: The film is generally more well-known than the book.
- Science Marches On: Tabor island (AKA Maria-Theresa reef) where Ayrton was marooned, and which was long believed to sit at the stated location, was later proven to not exist at all. What's interesting is that the Ernest Legouve reef, a similar phantom island close to the purported Tabor's position, sits roughly in the same location as Verne's Lincoln island.
- Tear Jerker: Poor Jup. Nemo's back story is probably also a qualifier.
- The Woobie: Ayrton. Nemo has it pretty bad too.
