* DubInducedPlotHole: In the Italian translation, the plot point where the killer [[spoiler:tears an "s" off the corner of a letter to change "she" into "he"]] is altered: [[spoiler:the page is ripped so that only the final "i" from "lei" ("she") would be read, so it might as well be "lui" ("he"). Not only is assuming it's about a man a bit of an unjustified leap, but it also makes it obvious that the start that the letter was ripped to begin with]].

The same basically goes for translation into any language whose male and female pronouns are not similar enough.]].

Added DiffLines:

* BlondeBrunetteRedhead: DumbBlonde GoldDigger Jane ([[spoiler:who as Poirot suspects has a cunning for survival belied by her childishness]]), comparatively BrainyBrunette Carlotta (which becomes relevant when [[spoiler:she makes a classical reference while impersonating Jane that gives away the switch]]) and FieryRedhead Jenny Driver.

Added DiffLines:

* BeautyIsBad: [[spoiler:Bryan Martin and Alton are described as being very handsome; the latter is a thief, and the former lies to Poirot in an attempt to frame the woman who rejected him. Jane Wilkinson, meanwhile, is described as very beautiful, and is the murderer and main villain of the story.]]

Added DiffLines:

* InheritanceMurder: ImpoverishedPatrician Ronald Marsh is arrested on suspicion of having murdered his uncle for the money and title, while it's not considered as a motive for Jane Wilkison because his will specifically excluded her. [[spoiler:Jane doesn't care that she won't get anything from her husband's death, she has her eyes on another rich man who will not marry a divorced woman. A widow, on the other hand...]]


Added DiffLines:

* NotAnAct: Hastings sees Jane Wilkinson trying out widow's clothes with an air of great concentration, and clearly uninterested in such trivial matters as the murder of her husband. At the end of the story he confirms his impression that she really did only care about the clothes at the time [[spoiler:even though she'd murdered said husband]].
-->But when I think of her, I always see her the same wayŚ standing in her room at the Savoy trying on expensive black clothes with a serious absorbed face. I am convinced that that was no pose. She was being completely natural. [[spoiler:Her plan had succeeded and therefore she had no further qualms and doubts. Neither do I think that she ever suffered one pang of remorse for the three crimes she had committed.]]


* BeneathSuspicion: At the time of the murder, Jane was at a party with twelve distinguished people, none of whom had any reason to lie for her. [[spoiler:Only she wasn't; Carlotta was impersonating her.]]

** Poirot reflects that the one time he took notice of a physical clue, no one would believe him because it was "four foot long instead of four centimetres". This is, of course, a reference to ''Literature/TheMurderOnTheLinks'', where Poirot found a metal pipe near the victim's body, which everyone else dismissed as a part of the construction site.

* ChekhovsParty: Two. The first is obvious, as Jane is at a party when her husband is murdered. Then, Donald Ross is killed... and that happens at ''another'' party. [[spoiler: Donald overhears Jane mistake the "judgment of Paris" as referring to the city of Paris. This appears to be a simple social embarrassment, but it's much more significant to Donald because he was talking about culture with "Jane" at the dinner party. He puts these two parties together to figure out Jane had an impersonator - and so she killed him.]]

** Donald Ross has one when [[spoiler:Jane overhears a reference to the judgement of Paris at a dinner party and responds as if it's referring to the city. Having been at the party where Carlotta had impersonated Jane and was able to converse easily about topics like history, Ross realised that the Jane he'd met at the previous party was not the Jane he was presently dining with.

* KickTheSonOfABitch: Poirot invites and sits Hasting, Japp, Jenny Driver, and Bryan Martin when he is about to explain the case. [[spoiler:He invites Jenny Driver and Bryan Martin because Bryan Martin gave him a foolish/fake story, so he sits Jenny Driver and Bryan Martin who are about to marry to shame Bryan Martin]] and encourage Jenny not make their marriage "a typical Hollywood marriage where Bryan can divorce her after 4-5 years".

* OhCrap: A double whammy, both centered on the same gaffe. While attending a dinner party, someone makes reference to [[spoiler: "the judgment of Paris," a term from Greek mythology, but Jane thinks the speaker is referring to the city. Everyone is embarrassed, but Donald Ross falls into this trope and seems more troubled--because he realizes that the "Jane" who he spoke to at the dinner party on the night of Lord Edgware's murder was a cultured, intelligent lady who spoke freely and articulately about myths and legends. He immediately deduces that ''this isn't the same woman,'' and rushes off to make a phone call...triggering the trope in Jane, who follows and promptly murders him.]]
* [[PsychopathicManChild Psychopathic Womanchild]]: [[spoiler: Jane is ultimately revealed to be this. She has absolutely no moral code and cares about nothing but her own happiness, dressing up in pretty clothes, and getting whatever she wants. The problem is that she's incredibly ''socially'' intelligent and able to manipulate people into either playing along with her games or underestimating her, even if she lacks a classical education. All in all, she comes across as an overgrown toddler with the money and means to indulge her every whim--and who kills those who stand in the way of those indulgences.]]
* RagsToRiches: Ronald Marsh is poor but extravagant, nobleman and he suddenly becomes rich because he inherits his uncle's wealth. He of course lampshade this saying (paraphrasedly), "Yesterday, I was rejected by every potential father-in-law. Today I am chased by every investor."

** [[spoiler: The ruby-encrusted box with Carlotta's initials on it and the inscription about Paris. It ''is'' evidence--but not of anything Carlotta actually did. It was planted on her by the murderer to make the "accidental overdose" theory more plausible, by making it seem as though she had a drug habit.]]

* RealLifeWritesThePlot: Agatha Christie first got the idea for this novel after seeing a highly talented vaudeville artiste, who in her show portrayed a range of characters ranging from five to fifty, of both genders and over a dozen varied walks of life. Christie basically started wondering 'if this woman can do all that, what else could she do - could she impersonate someone specific?'. Plot Ensued.
* RevengeByProxy: Ms. Carroll says that Lord Edgeware treated Geraldine cruelly as a form of revenge against her mother for leaving him.
* SmarterThanYouLook: Ronald Marsh is a drunken, overly-talkative man whose always hitting up people for money and seems like just another UpperClassTwit fallen on hard times, but Poirot notes that he isn't really a foolish man, as he is well aware that Poirot and the police see him as a murder suspect and quickly and decisively produces an alibi to yank the rug out from under Poirot almost before the detective has begun interviewing him.

* SuspiciouslySpecificDenial: At the end of the novel Poirot speculates that Lord Edgeware was willing to give his wife a divorce due to a letter she sent him threatening to reveal some form of marital cruelty. He comes to this belief because Lord Edgeware states his decision is "not on account of anything in that letter", before Poirot even mentions the letter.
