Added DiffLines:

** Andre's English was never very strong and his thick French accent makes it very hard to understand him.

Added DiffLines:

* KirkSummation: When Humperdinck reveals that he never sent any ships to find Westly she points out how his plan will fail because their love will prevail and that he is a DirtyCoward.


Added DiffLines:

* VillainousBreakdown: When Buttercup gives him a KirkSummation he locks her up and then [[spoiler: immediately goes and kills Westly.]]

Added DiffLines:

* LargeAndInCharge: Noticeably taller than most other characters.


Added DiffLines:

* NumberTwo: Since Rugan spends most of his time in the pit of despair Yellin is the one organizing the soldiers for Humperdink.


* AdaptationalWimp: In the book, he's a hulking bruiser who kills apes with his bare hands. In the film, he's described as an outstanding tracker, but his physical abilities are never mentioned, and he has a normal build.



* VillainousFriendship: Type I with Count Rugen. Jerks though they might be, they're pretty genuinely friendly, being family and all.

to:

* VillainousCrush: Subverted. While he does acknowledge Buttercup's great beauty, he only plans to marry her so that he can fulfill his dynastic obligations and get an ego boost from having snagged an ''extremely'' attractive woman. [[spoiler:Subverted even further when it's revealed that he plans to have her killed and frame Guilder for it so he can have an excuse to go to war]].
* VillainousFriendship: Type I with Count Rugen. Jerks though they might be, they're pretty genuinely friendly, being (possible) family and all.


* AdaptationalAttractiveness: Played by the very handsome Chris Sarandon in the movie, though Westley still calls him ugly, both to his face and to Buttercup.

to:

* AdaptationalAttractiveness: In the book, he's ridiculously muscular, to the point of looking grotesque. Played by the very handsome Chris Sarandon in the movie, though Westley still calls him ugly, both to his face and to Buttercup.

Added DiffLines:

* AddedAlliterativeAppeal: '''M'''iracle '''M'''ax, or '''M'''ax the '''M'''iracle '''M'''an.

Added DiffLines:

* AbledInTheAdaptation: He's not a hunchback in the film.


Added DiffLines:

* EvenEvilHasStandards: He's disturbed, as is everyone else, by the screams from the Machine.

Added DiffLines:

* ExactlyWhatIAimedAt: He deliberately throws his first rock ahead of Wesley (with enough force to shatter it even) for two reasons: 1) to reveal himself and offer the option to LetsFightLikeGentlemen and 2) to show Wesley he's fast and strong enough with a rock that if he really wanted to kill him, [[IfIWantedYouDead he could easily end the fight in an instant]].


Added DiffLines:

* IfIWantedYouDead: Tells Wesley he "didn't have to miss" his sneak attack if he really wanted him dead, and Wesley believes him after seeing how that sizeable rock ''shattered to pieces'' on impact.


* GoodIsNotNice: Thanks to his perceived abandonment by Buttercup. Even after he finds out he was wrong, he's on the bitter and snarky side.

Added DiffLines:

* NervesOfSteel: Absolutely nothing phases him. He takes on the most dangerous challenges with almost superhuman equanimity.

-->'''Inigo''': I swear on could give you my honor word as a Spaniard.\\


-->'''Man In Black''': You guessed wrong.\\\

-->'''Man In Black''': You guessed wrong.\\\\\


-->'''Man In Black''': You guessed wrong.\\\
'''Vizzini''': You only ''think'' I guessed wrong. That's what's so funny! I [[PoisonedChaliceSwitcheroo switched glasses when your back was turned]]! Haha, YouFool! You fell victim to one of the classic blunders, the most famous is "never get involved in a land war in Asia," but only slightly less well-known is this: Never go in against a Sicilian WHEN DEATH IS ON THE LINE! [[LaughingMad AHHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA-]] [[spoiler:([[DieLaughing falls over and dies]])]].



* VillainousBreakdown: The man in black's pursuit sends him right off his rocker, especially in the book, albeit not so very long after the reader ''meets'' him in the first place. (That said, he claims that it's been ''years'' since someone challenged his mind, and there's a general indication that Vizzini is legitimately used to his plans going off without a hitch.)

* YouFool: Yells this to the Man In Black during his EvilGloating when he thinks he's won the game. [[spoiler:There certainly was a fool, but it wasn't the Man in Black]].
