* ShoutOut: The "und Taxis" part of "Desgoffe und Taxis" is inspired by the RealLife von Thurn und Taxis family, which is part of the German nobility. More specifically, parts of Gustave H.'s personality (his poetic speeches in particular) have been said to be inspired by Creator/RainerMariaRilke. Marie von Thurn und Taxis trusted Rilke with a castle, like Madame D. trusts Gustave H. with a grand hotel (although Gustave didn't know it before Madame D. died).

Added DiffLines:

* TheQuietOne: He barely spoke as a youth, which adds more weight to how he becomes a rather eloquent and sociable storyteller in his later years.


* AgentPeacock: Gustave is ''[[{{Camp}} more]]'' than a little bit [[TheDandy flouncing and metrosexual]], but he's also a courageous and daring man who's more than capable of beating up hardened prisoners so hard that he instantly [[DefeatMeansFriendship gains their respect.]]
